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

I was so surprised with the quality of this place for the price. We took an upper room and the view was unbeatable. Room was spotless, spacious and well appointed. Big fridge, fan, lovely balcony, hammock. Breakfast was tasty and laundry was very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and always available. You only need a few nights here as a... More

this small hotel has amazing ocean views from your room and scarlet macaws in its trees. It was $95 for a night including breakfast and they are happy to carry your bags up the stairs! The room was quite warm during the day and the bed was way too hard, But I adored the staff and the view is unparalleled.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a "upper" room with a fairly decent ocean view. The room was fairly spacious with a comfortable bed, ceiling fan, standing fan, small fridge and freezer, safe, decent bathroom with "suicide" shower, balcony with hammock, table and chairs. The room was sweltering hot during the day and... More

We stayed here in February for a couple of nights. Very clean and laid back place with a nice hammock and terrace to chill out on. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were friendly and efficient. Yes it is a bit of a hike up the stairs but it was very good exercise! I would recommend this as a... More

We stayed at Las Cotingas for 5 nights. We stayed in the cheaper room but it was quite comfy for 5 nights. I am sure the rooms with the sea view are much nicer. The room was clean with ac, mini fridge and private bathroom. The wifi connection in our room was a bit unreliable but you can work well... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in December before a 2 night trip to the Corcovado National Park then another night on our return. Lovely hotel and very friendly staff. Some people on here have commented that the steps up to the hotel are a problem. There are steps but the view from the top is magnificent! The location of... More

We've stayed in Las Cotingas for four nights over Christmas and we've enjoyed our stay. Some review bullet points from our side: Some stairs to take but you are rewarded with a great view over Drake Bay, very nice and friendly staff, 'family-like feeling', we've found the partial ocean view rooms the best - good view, good breeze & most...

Stayed 2 nights. Cabins are spacious, private, quiet, secure (lockbox offered), they all have decks and hammocks, which was a nice touch. The best part about the hotel was the view of Drake Bay, I recommend booking one of the two cabins that has this view, there are two more that don't, like we got. However, the eating area is...
