Pay attention to just a few tips and you'l have a wonderful stay. Zacharias and his family run this place and do all they can to make sure your stay is more than pleasant. If you drive (and I strongly suggest that you DO!) make sure to plan your arrival well before dark. 4WD is almost required, and you'll need... More

Drake Bay in Costa Rica is an incredible place, and the people at Casa Drake are really lovely and caring. However, you need to be aware of these things before you book: - This hotel only accepts cash payments for your board. Having enough USD before you even arrive in Drake Bay is a must. There are no ATMS in... More

We stayed here for 4 nights march 2014. The room we had was very clean (as was the rest of the house and bathroom) and really well prepared. We had a fan provided and an insect net kept us clear of bites at night. This isn't a sanitised western hotel, it is a taste of life in Costa Rica and... More

We liked this hotel very much. It was as living with a Tico family for a couple of days. These people went out of their ways to help us in any way they could. The rooms were basic but clean. They provided us with a fan as it was quite hot so we had a few good night sleeps. There... More

I stayed 4 nights here with my boyfriend and it was the best choice for us! We were the only two in the whole house for the entire stay so we had the VIP treatment, all the attention and help only for us! The lodge is owned and ran by a Costarican family and they do an excellent job, they... More

Exceptionally clean and comfortable room, great family atmosphere, good food and local flavor. Spanish speaking needed to get the most out of the experience but I expect it would be enjoyable even with limited Spanish. Luz Marie is excellent cook with great variety in meals that included Costa Rican standards and also some variety. Zacarius has lived in the area... More

Our days here could not have been better. We experienced the life and wonderful hospitality of our hosts and their family and they made us feel so comfortable. They helped us enjoy every minute. Our meals were so exciting with a great variety and beautifully presented. Outstanding!

This lodge, built and run by a local family is a really special place with a lot of heart and the best typical food ever, horseback rides, and located in a quiet area with lots of wildlife and plants. Had one of the best experiences in Costa Rica....

Gente maravillosa, que lo da todo por el huésped. Amazing people that will do anything for there guests. Quiet place far away from any noice what so ever. This is a house built by Zacarías and his brother who have made it from real solid local wood of only fallen trees, no cut down. He has land surrounding the premises... More
