Corcovado and especially Drake Bay is very popular amongst the people in Costa Rica. Since it is still so pure compared to for example Manuel Antonio National Park. We stayed at the Rancho during our 3 week stay in Costa Rica and learned what it was to live to the rythm of the pacific ocean. Beauty, relaxation, nature and simplicity... More

My friend and I stayed here for ten nights recently, and we really enjoyed every minute. The hotel is located right on the beach and also very close to the village and local restaurants. This meant that we could totally relax in hammocks by the shore and then pop out for ice-cream or a bit of activity later in the... More

Our family of five had an excellent experience at the Rancho Corcovado Lodge in Drake Bay, Costa Rica! Our children are ages 7,8,10, and we were thrilled at how accommodating they were to families with young children. The lodge itself is family owned and operated, and the service exceded our expectations, especially in regards to accommodating our children. The property... More

I was very torn between Drake Bay Resort and Rancho, I'm very glad we decided on Rancho. The grounds and area are perfect, all of our tour boats picked us up and dropped us off here and those from other hotels had to come over to us. I guess compared to some of the other hotels, Rancho is considered expensive... More

We stayed at Rancho Corcovado for 12 days and had a great stay. We had our 3 month old baby and we felt very comfortable and taken care of. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and it is right on the ocean. The food was excellent, and the setting was far enough from the small town that you did not hear... More

This is a family owned hotel and the people are very sweet. The location is right on the beach and it is very quiet. It has a good restaurant and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms are basic bordering on funky. There were three beds in our small room and we had to sleep in separate beds because the full... More

We stayed at Rancho Corcovado for two nights and were very pleased with our stay. The property is on the beach and is very relaxing. We were walk-ins and most of the city was booked so we changed rooms after one night. I can't recall if the first room had hot water (I'm guessing no) but second room had amazing... More

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.
