We were there in late May and loved it. The location is beautiful, the property is well maintained, the rooms are comfortable, the staff is very friendly and welcoming and the food was excellent. The one thing you need to keep in mind is that the whole Osa peninsula area is very rustic and they keep it that way on... More

This was our 2nd stop on our Costa Rica trip, as we wanted to do some scuba diving off of Isle de Cano. After arriving in Drake Bay (an adventure in itself as there are river crossings and the road is challenging), we were met by a boat that took us across the bay to the resort. You can hike... More

We had traveled to Costa Rica in May 2014 for our honeymoon and this was by far our favorite hotel. The staff are very friendly and the views could not be better. We had travelled during the off season so there was only one other couple there with us but that didn't stop the staff from great service and ridiculously... More

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon. It was nice to be here in the off-season because there are fewer people staying at the resort, which makes the family-style dinners and happy hours more communal. I'm not terribly outdoorsy but thought that while in Costa Rica it would be worth trying the open-air casita. At night it was a... More

My wife and I just returned from our trip to CR with a 4 night stay at Aguila de Osa and we can't say enough great things about the location, the facility or the staff. From the moment you arrive you are immersed in an exotic/intimate retreat and welcomed to what will be your new "family" for the next several... More

My wife and I just returned from CR, where we spent 4 days (and nights) at Aguila de Osa Inn. I would easily give 5 stars to the Inn, its staff, and its food (the chef is an AMAZING cook). The food, especially the dinners with a choice of freshly-caught fish from Drakes Bay or perfectly cooked meat, was a... More

This resort sitting above Drake Bay couldn't have a lovelier setting. The inn allows you to be as active as you wish while still affording the tranquility and natural setting many desire. Food is excellent. Each night one is offered a choice of either fish or some type of meat. The fresh fish is simply prepared and always delicious. The... More

We were at Agula de Osa for 5 days and 4 nights. From our first step on the docks to our last foot in the boat to leave, we could not have asked for better service or nicer people. Thank you. We had 2 amazing days of diving. Seen dolphins on the way out to Cano island, seen a mother... More

That's a pun. Although the suspension bridges of central CR were higher, the 3 flight climb to our room made it feel like we were sleeping in a tree house. Rooms are large and grand, and the view spectacular, whether for birding or just watching boats on the bay. Food was great and service impeccable. You will make your dinner... More

We had a fabulous time recently at the Aguila de Osa hotel on Drake Bay in Costa Rica. The location, overlooking the Pacific, was magnificent, with its views, flowers and birds. The staff was exceptional, friendly and extremely helpful. The trips offered were great. And the man in charge of it all, Olman Benes, was outstanding. We'd go back in... More
