I had a great stay at Rancho Corcovado. Roger and his staff was very friendly and helpful. The view from the porch of my room was very nice. The food served at the hotel was very good. I would absolutely recommend Rancho Corcovado to all visit Bahia Drake.

Really enjoyed staying here for 3 nights. The place is surrounded by some of the best natural beauty you will ever see, and has an extremely relaxed and peaceful vibe to it. It's run by a family, and they are all incredibly friendly. Very reasonable price for what's provided.

The hotel is a little bit away from the main road but right by the beach. The rooms are very nice with a shared terrace. The view on the bay is amazing. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable. The food is good but overpriced. I found this hotel quite expensive compared to other accommodation in Drake bay.

Great place on the nice beach and warm welcome by Mario was a nice promise for our 4 nights stay.But we were bit disapointed by cabin no1 located at the edge of field close to beach . There were about 3 families camping and some others parking cars. It was quite disturbing not only by lost privacy but also by... More

We were booked here for 3 nights. Having parked the car at the Las Vegas Café in Sierpe we were greeted by Mario (Father) & transported by the Corcovado boat up the river and across Drakes Bay to the hotel - a trip that took an hour and a half. We were in room 14 - up 53 steps with... More

Great welcome from the owners Mario and Maria and their family. The food was excellent and the service at the dining room was perfect. The location is great and the beach is beautiful. The bad news is the room. The 2 of us were in room #10 way at the top of the hill. Coming back to the room after... More

We stayed here the last five days of a 14 day visit in Bahia Drake. We had room 14 which had a superior view of the bay, refreshing air-conditioning, very clean accommodations, cold showers due to an electrical problem. Roger organizes room bookings,tours, taxis and payment before you leave. His father Mario greets people throughout the day he is a... More

Rancho Corcovado was recommended to us when the hotel we historically stayed at in Drake Bay was not available. It was a good suggestion, and we had a very nice stay. Our room (#1) was very clean, had warm water for showering, and a good overhead fan. Soap and towels were provided. The owners Maria and Mario were very friendly... More

I thoroughly enjoyed staying here for an entire week, and Drake Bay in general. Rancho Corcovado is unique in every way. It's an old place with a lot of history, I'm sure. RIght on the beach, really great staff, really great cooks, and everyone really enjoying themselves.

I've been to Drake Bay several times, but this was my first time staying at Hotel Rancho Corcovado. It was wonderful. It is right on the beach, and the sound of the ocean surrounding you is wonderful. The food is great, and they were very accommodating to our vegetarian diets. I love coconut water, so they made sure they always... More
