My wife, 16 yo son and I spent 2 days here both before and after a trip to Corcovado Nat. Park. Johnny and his wife were wonderful hosts, very helpful and friendly. They arranged taxis, and even did our laundry for us. The porch outside our room was a great place to watch birds and lizards, and the small property... More

We recently traveled to Drake Bay Costa Rica and had the opportunity to stay at Cabinas Jade Mar. We chose a room with air conditioning and was very happy we did since the temperature was in the 90's and humidity around 95%. We couldn't have asked for better host than Johnny who was very accommodating. After our long hike through... More

Affordable, comfortable, friendly. Not a 5 star resort, more like a cabin at summer camp. We didn't have AC, but it cooled off nicely by bedtime. Super soft towels. Only a full sized bed. Close to restaurants & groceries. A long & rough drive out there. The bungalows have a view of the ocean. Just hope the neighbors rooster doesn't... More

The two of us stayed four nights in a private bungalow and wish we stayed longer! We arrived a day early and the hosts were able to accommodate us. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The balcony over looked Drake Bay and provided amazing opportunities to view the ocean and clouds at sun rise and sun set. The hosts... More

Johny and Gretel are great hosts. Johnny like myself is interested in photography so we had some great times viewing images of all the fabulous wildlife in the area. The cabin I stayed in was comfortable and had a good view of the Bay from my front porch. The area around the cabins is full of wild life notably the... More

We had a great stay at the cabinas from Gretel & Johnny! They picked us up at the beach after we arrived by boat so we didn't have to carry our luggage some 100 m uphill and even thus there were some problems with the electronic booking system, they arranged everything so we didn't have any problems at all! They... More

We had a great 6 day stay here with our 3 month baby in tow. Jonny and his wife run a great business, and the price was economical too. The shared kitchen was really nice and there are AC rooms as well as small cabins.

Johnny and his wife are wonderful people who took time to explain everything we needed to know, to answer all our questions and even show us amazing wildlife around the cabines. The rooms are very clean, with hot water, the beds are comfortable, the rooms have amazing sea views (some better... More

I stayed in a basic room, which comes with the use of a community kitchen, and a community sitting area with a view to the ocean, overlooking a garden visited by a many large iguanas and a variety of birds. The wonderful owners, Gretel and Johnnie, are enthusiastic about the wildlife and flowers on the property, and if you are... More
