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...

After 4 days in the jungle, Las Cotingas Lodge was just what we were looking for. Best view in Drake Bay, beautiful wooden lodge, and stunning garden. We loved bird watching from the open dining area, and saw the lovely Cotingas bird! Staff were very friendly and helpful, food was also great, especially the pineapple flambeado!! Delicious!

Drake bay itself could use a lot of improvement in business and some marketing. No parties, no bars with music, really slow city. The hotel was good considering the price and time of the year but the staff is really short. Very dedicated but they need more professional touch - as do all drake bay.

Amazing views as the cabins are set quite high above the bay. At the front the hotel has a well-maintained and pretty gardens and a beautiful little covered terrace with wooden tables and chairs and hammocks, on which you can sit down for a drink or a cocktail or to enjoy your meals. The rooms are spacious and basic but... More

This is the second time I have stayed here. One previously under different management. The rooms were quite comfortable. It is a long way up the hill. But worth it for the awesome views. Plenty of bird and wildlife come right past. There are a number of spacious rooms surronded by lovely gardens. There is a common area terrace with... More
