Loved this hotel and everything about it, down to the boat trip to get there and the garden in the back where our meals were sourced from. One of the most special places I've ever been and it will stay with great fondness in my memory.

We had a fine vacation here with a focus on wildlife. Friendly and helpful staff, and well-planned excursions to snorkeling and a rainforest hike. Our room was a spacious suite with views on three sides and a huge wraparound balcony with hammock that provided lots of wildlife watching (tropical birds and howler monkeys). Meals were varied and flavorful with generous... More

We recently stayed for four days and had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful and well-kept. The only problem is that the security is not good. The rooms are walled by screens and are quite a distance from the main lobby, leaving no way to communicate danger to the reception desk (no phone lines or any way to notify... More

Bradd333, Owner at Aguila de Osa Inn, responded to this review

As owner of the hotel, there is nothing worse than learning about an unfortunate incident like this one, and so I am responding personally. We’ve been in business for 23 years and while this is only the second time there’s been a break in, it was understandably upsetting for those guests and we immediately reimbursed them for the cost of...

My husband and I visited Aguila de Osa Inn in November 2014; this place is a real gem. We only had a week in Costa Rica, so we decided to stay the whole time in Drake Bay at Aguila de Osa. This was definitely the right choice. For the first few days it was only the two of us, one... More

The three days I spent in Aguila de Osa were amazing. I went snorkeling the first day. The guide, Sandra, took me to a great spot. I saw turtles, fish, dolphins, and even a couple sharks. The second day I went on a hike in Corcovado National Park. The guide,Tony, was an expert on the park. We saw an uncountable... More

First stop on our honeymoon! Wish I could bring the staff back home with me. No complaints or negatives what so ever. This place is magical,surroundings taken out of a dream. It's the jungle, you will see/hear many unusual things.

What an incredible beginning to our time in Costa Rica. From the little plane to the wet transfer to the boat to the little bay where the inn is located, our stay was superb. We only wish we had stayed longer. The free kayaks were used daily for the trip up river and the slow coast back. Monkeys and macaws... More

We stayed at Aguila de Osa Inn for three nights a few weeks ago with our two 20 something children. The 40 minute boat ride from Sierpe to Drake Bay was awesome. We saw Monkeys and crocodiles along the way. Upon arrival to the beautiful inn we were greeted by Carlos who gave us the lay of the land, and... More

Getting here is part of the adventure, flying into Drake airstrip on a small plane, 4x4 fording across a river and finally a short boat trip across to the hotel. You are greeted by the friendly staff who explain the hotel and any trips you have booked over a refreshing cocktail. Rooms are nicely decked out with polished wood furniture,... More

We spent six nights, seven days, at Aguila de Osa, staying in the Junior Suite (room 12). Even prior to our arrival, everything was taken care of for us and everyone we met was very friendly and helpful, from the shuttle which met us at Drake Bay airport, to the gentlemen who took us by boat to the inn, to...
