We just returned from a four-night visit to Copa de Arbol and had an absolutely great experience. This property is located as close to the incredible beauty of the Oso Peninsula as you can get, and the rooms are as natural as they are comfortable and beautiful. The staff was genuinely warm and friendly, and surprisingly professional for such a... More

From the owners to the staff to the facilities to the surrounding natural environment, this place has got it right. Everyone put in the extra effort to make sure my stay was great. I almost hesitate to rave about this place as it is the definition of a "hidden gem" that I'd like all to myself.

Great location: just enough off the beaten path. Welcoming staff, knowledgeable guides, plenty of activities OR just relax. Tasty fresh meals and good bar offerings. Lived every minute. Family of three who enjoy the outdoors. Stayed 7 nights, no regrets. Would stay even longer if we could have .

I've never written an online review, but after spending 3 nights here, I felt like I had to. This is the most unique property I have ever visited. Rooms: clean, spacious, comfortable Food: everyday was delicious, and the chef made sure you left happy. Environment: wild, remote and secluded. Wildlife everywhere. We were greeted by a howler monkey upon arrival!... More

We booked 4 nights here for a family vacation and loved it. From pick up at the Drake Bay airport there is a short car ride and river crossing to the boat that ferries you to Copa de Arbol resort. On the boat ride over the escorts took a short detour into an inlet to show us some lovely views... More

Coba de Arbol is absolutely stunning! So much has already been said in past reviews but I'll just add to it. Our family of 6, wife, myself and four children have been traveling around the world the past 11 summers and the Coba de Arbol is now one of our all-time favorites. Up there with our stay two summers ago... More

Recently stayed at Copa de Arbol for an anniversary getaway and already want to return. The accommodations, food and excursions were wonderful but what really made the place special was the people. Everyone went out of their way to make sure you were taken care of every day. Would highly recommend this resort to anyone. Sue and Ken Haley

We were picked up at the airport in Drake Bay by car and driven to the boat that took us to Copa De Arbol. The resort was secluded and very private, beautiful views, wonderful food (the chef accommodated our vegan diet, yay!). The day excursion to Corcovado National Park was amazing and our tour guide Steven was GREAT. We even... More

Excellent location, very comfortable rooms ( except for lack of coat-hangers and a small refrigerator ! ), very good food, cosy atmosphere, friendly personnel. Bare-foot approach to rooms and restaurant surprising but actually nice !

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It’s true that some of our rooms don’t have hangers, cabin 3 and 4 come to mind. When we built the place we simply overlooked closet space, a direct result of having a wardrobe that consisted of 3 t-shirts and 2 pairs of surf trunks that usually got thrown on the... More

We spent 4 nights at Copa in early July with our two daughters (13 and 11). The cabins have a Balinese feel to them. Very comfortable (and air conditioned!). Loved sitting on the porch reading and gazing out at the ocean. The property itself is beautiful with lush vegetation, animals and birds, amazing views, and a fantastic pool and hot... More

I will always remember the swell that you mention as those were the biggest waves to hit the coast here in several years. Nature shows it’s power in many ways on the Osa; whether it be strong thunder and lighting storms or a giant swell like you experienced. I think the ever-changing weather is part of the experience and really... More
