I can't say enough about our experience at Los Contingas Lodge! We had some problems with our transportation and Mauricio was a lifesaver. He went so over and above anything we would have expected. He and his staff and colleagues turned what could have been a disaster into an unforgettable adventure. We arrived at our cabin after dark and when... More

The lobby and the cabins are about 100 feet up from street level. The stairs are uneven and raw. You think twice before you commit yourself to go down. The beach in town is close but the water is muddy brown due to the creeks entering the ocean in the vicinity. Not suitable for swimming. The closest nice beach was... More

Had a refrigerator, ceiling fan, table fan, and a large outdoor balcony overlooking the ocean. There is a safe in the room. The price was $100.00 USD per... More

This was a fantastic choice of hotel. I was staying on my own and I felt completely safe. The room was very clean when I arrived and was cleaned every day thereafter. There is free Wi-Fi, a fridge in the room, en-suite bathrooms and mosquito nets around the bed, although I wasn't bitten anyway. The view from the rooftop balcony... More

Las Cotingas was a really lovely stay. Mauricio was, hands down, one of the loveliest hoteliers I have had the pleasure of encountering. Incredibly friendly and accommodating. We needed to contact our diver centre to make sure that our plans were firm, and he helped arrange all our transport from the island. It was very clear that he made an... More

This hotel was wonderful! This was the first place we went on our trip around CR and our flight out of the states was cancelled, which meant we missed our connecting flight the next morning to Drake Bay. I panicked about hotels, transport, etc but after emailing back and forth with Mauricio, nothing was a problem. He just pushed our... More

I would like to personally recommend this hotel. The view is breath taking, the rooms are comfortable and the staff are very friendly. We also enjoyed a dinner one evening and I must say that the chef really knows what he is doing. We went exploring and we got completely soaked and when we came back they did not hesitate... More

The hotel is rustic in feel but it was very clean and comfortable. It felt like paradise after returning from two long nights at the Sirena ranger station. There was no air con but the breeze was sufficient to cool us down. The shower was cold but, given the humidity in Drake Bay, this was fine. The hotel is well... More

This place offers STUNNING view of Drake Bay and genuinely helpful service. The owner, Mauricio, knows about everything going on in town and speaks quality English. Filtered water and comfortable beds. Definitely would stay here again.
