We spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. The whole experience started with the fantastic boat trip from Sierpe (brilliantly captained by Dennis). We were welcomed at the jetty by Carlos (customer liason and wildlife guru) with the words "welcome to paradise." And he was not wrong! This beautiful hotel is situated on the beach, overlooking the sea and surrounded... More

We spent 3 days at this remote wonderland in August 2011. The hospitality blew us away. The kindest most accomodation staff I have ever met. Food was excellent. Staff taught us salsa dancing, assisted us with expanding our Spanish and gave us access to their personal computers to do emails. We felt like the staff were our long lost relatives... More

Recently staying at the Aguila de Osa Inn (AOI) for four nights following a wonderful fourteen day trip in Costa Rica we were not disappointed. Having traveled before to Costa Rica three separate times we had not yet explored Drake Bay. Arriving by water taxi via Sierpe was a great experience and we were warmly greeted at the boat dock...

After 11 days in Costa Rica, the real treat ........! - a trip to the Osa, and time at the Aguila de Osa, certainly the most expensive and exclusive stay on our whole holiday - perhaps our expectations were too high? however we had 'cranked it up a gear' and we were really looking forward to this. We arrived at... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Aguila and I never wanted to leave. We are very well traveled and I make all of the arrangements. I knew I wanted to visit the Osa Peninsula but didn't know where to stay. After reading about Aguila in Fodor's I checked them out on Tripadvisor and all of the rave... More

My husband and I had a great stay at Aguila de Osa. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is wonderful. Good food. Our only complaints is we never had hot water (reported it though, not a big deal as lukewarm was hot to me there) and my husband was not fond of the family style dining (it didn't bother... More
