We spent 5 nights at Finca Maresia, 1st night in a room above common area, then we moved to the cabin. Cabins are really wonderfully located, you are close to the wild life, howler monkeys wake you up in the early morning, you can observe hummingbirds from the bathroom, or scarlet macaws while sitting on your terrace or lying in...

Finca Maresia is a great place to stay. Surrended by beautiful nature the buildings are perfectly integrated into the hills. Everything is clean and modern. Juan, one of the owners, makes you feel comfortable at once and has a lot of interesting tips and stories to tell. By the way he's a great cook, so common dinner is not just... More

My husband and I chose Finca Maresia to stay four nights in Drake Bay near Concorvado Park. Established and managed by two partners from Spain in the bird and wildlife-filled hills above Drake Bay, this unique B & B offers spotless, spa-like cabins with porches, gorgeous wood flooring, hammocks, great breakfasts and excellent dinners in a unique social environment, at...

My father and I visited Drake Bay in March and stayed at Finca Maresia for three nights. I can not say enough about this amazing paradise, from the moment we arrived we instantly felt welcomed by Juan and his team. It is situated in a great place for spotting wildlife and just about a 10 minute walk from the village... More

We stayed 5 nights in a superior cabin room and it was definitely the right choice to splurge a little. The private bath with the outdoor connected shower and private deck and hammocks facing the jungle were wonderful, not to mention the extra big bed. Juan is also a superior host, who is somehow able to keep track of everyone's... More

We stayed 4 nights at Finca Maresia, the longest of all our stops while in Costa Rica. Juan was a lovely host. We were pleased in his ability to suggest activities and tours around the area, and appreciated his up to date information when he suggested we forgo snorkeling one day due to cloudy seas. Our room was large and... More

Finca Maresia is extremely well run with visitors' needs always in mind. We stayed in one of the superior bungalows which was clean and well-equipped (coffee/tea in the room would have been good but that is a very minor quibble). It was definitely the best of the six places we stayed in Costa Rica and among the top 3 of... More
