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.

This place was comfortable, and very relaxed. It has the best view in Drake Bay, and you can get great food delivered directly to your room. I relaxed in my hammock and they brought fresh ceviche to my room. Great place! Reserve in advance to get the rooms with the best views. And bring cash to avoid credit card fees.... More

5-star view of Bahia Drake from the communal hang-out balcony and the two ocean view cabins. Very large rooms and very accommodating Mauricio. There are probably 500 Scarlet Macaws that live next door which is a pretty unbelievable site. Great place to kick back and read and enjoy the views. It's right above the street in the main town so... More

I spent three nights at Las Cotingas, and enjoyed my stay. The room was simple, clean, had a good mattress, and was very quiet at night. During the day, the room was very hot, and even with the fan going it was uncomfortable unless there was a good breeze. However, in the evening it cooled down surprisingly and was comfortable...

This hotel was very comfortable. Casual, and has everything you need. Bathroom was cramped but the bedroom was large. Simple but adequate. Food good, the deck overlooks the bay - perfect relaxation space. The two improvements I would have liked: A/C and a more spacious bathroom. All in all, though, I'd probably go back. However the sign says $20 per... More

We chose Las Cotingas from several good trip advisor reviews. Many people spoke of the great food and service. Not so much anymore. No dinners and breakfast was somewhat uncertain. Normally a choice between eggs and pancakes, pancakes weren't always available. Service was slow, even by Costa Rican standards. We booked for 4 nights, but after two, we were told... More

Very comfortable room with private balcony overlooking Drake Bay. There is also a communal area with a similar view so don't despair if you can't get one of the prime rooms. The price you have to pay for this view is a climb up many steps to get to the hotel, but it is worth it (unless you have a... More

Spent two nights on a 10 day trip around southwest Costa Rica. Had a very pleasant stay. Felix made us feel welcome from the second we arrived. The pace out here is very relaxed, the rooms are very basic, neat and tidy. Ours had a great view out over the bay and a hammock on the porch. The town is... More

We stayed in Las Cotingas situated on the hill overviewing Drake Bay. The ranchitos are reachable by stairs which is quite a climb covering a height of 20 m. From the beach it is nothing more than a 10 minute walk. Keep in mind that when you are disabled or having difficulties with walking I would not recommend the Ranchitos.... More
