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

We recently stayed three nights in cabina Cacoa at the resort. Our first stop was the restaurant which was a wow in itself. The view to the bay was fantastic and the food was five star and all included as well as snacks at 5:00 and coffee and fresh baked cookies pretty much anytime. All of the meals were served... More

I can relate to your feelings of regret when leaving the Osa Peninsula. I first came to the area like all of our guests, a curious visitor. The difference is I just couldn’t leave, I really had no choice in my mind but to find a way to stay and that’s how Copa De Arbol was born. Thanks for posting... More

What a fantastic place. Luxury and 5 star customer service is what you can expect at Copa de Arbol. Every part of our three days there was perfect. We arrived just as the semi final world cup match between Argentina and the Netherlands began and they brought in a big screen TV so my 17 year old son could watch... More

The safety and well being of our guests is our highest priority. We are in a remote area so we must be ready to respond to illness or worse. Costa Rica has a great medical system; it is something that Costa Rica and its people are proud of. It is free and available to citizens and visitors alike. The town... More
