Okay I have to admit, getting off the boat then walking up the hill, hitting the 114 steps to get up to the Lodge that first minute was no picnic. My "what was I thinking" attitude for 2 seconds. They brought out juice for everyone so we can all catch our breath. The place, the location, our room, THE VIEW,... More

This place is great all the way around, good location, super clean, the best view, excellent customer service, good breakfast... all for a very reasonable price. The owner is always on side and eager to help, he is from Drake Bay himself so he can answer any questions that you may have.

We started our first ever trip to Costa Rica in Drake Bay and it remained our favourite destination in the country throughout our stay. Las Cotingas is perched at the top of the hill overlooking Drake Bay and the views from our balcony were stunning. In fact, the locals themselves will tell you that the hotel has the best views...

This place is really beautiful. I spent a little more for the balcony and ocean views and it was so worth it. No tv and wifi only works in reception. The room was completely cleaned daily. There is a fridge in the room and hammock and chairs on your private balcony. Breakfast was great. It was possible to order meals... More

We spend two nights at las cotingas. It is really a great place to stay and rest after the jungle Tour. Yes, the steps ar a long way up to the hotel, but they are worth it. The view is amazing, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is very helpful (especially the owner, mauricio)!

Amazing view of the ocean from our hammocks and balcony in the Aracari room. Awesome firm bed so I had a great sleep, and with the sound of waves I fell asleep instantly. The location is fabulous, so close to restaurants and the beach and shop. the steps are small and not an issue at all - good exercise given... More

We stayed for one night before flying out of DB. We had a nice room with a balcony. Cant beat the view, amazing. The rest of the hotel is basic with a small bar and eating area. Just a typical breakfast served which wasnt much to write home about. Shame they dont do a dinner service i would have preferred... More

Nothing about this place impressed me. If you want me to walk up 116 steps to go and relax you better have a swimming pool to relax in. Not a leaking shower that never has any water, they claimed all of Drake had no water. It would have been nice if they informed me of that before jumping in and... More
