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

We highly recommend this lodge for: - its stunning view (probably the best) on Drake Bay - its ideal location, 3 min from the beach and the village with supermarkets and restaurants - friendly and very helpful staff (thanks Mauricio) - excellent Cook ; we tried many restaurants in Bahia Drake and here was definitely the best - all excursions...

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
