We stayed 4 nights in Drake Bay Wilderness Resort and we didn't want to leave! We enjoyed it to the max. The location and the view is just stunning, the service, the friendliness, everything was superb! Our room (very big and very clean) did not had airconditioning, but I would not have it any other way. During the night you... More

We divided our honeymoon into 2 halves, 1st week on Caribbean side and the second here in Drake Bay. We were aiming for more of a luxury week and got just that. Very helpful and friendly staff, lovely welcome drinks and info about the area, laundry service that was a godsend, and a fantastic dinner each night, so good that... More

I first went to DBWR 20 years ago by myself for some adventure. I was in my early 20's. The trip was so memorable that I have told stories of that trip to my daughters at bedtime. Finally, I felt my 10 year old daughter was old enought to go. We went "unplugged." NO TV's or electronics. My kid needed... More

We spent the first few days of our vacation at Drake Bay...what a beautiful experience! We felt very welcomed by everyone and went out of their way to make us feel like part of their family. We didn't know what to expect at first, and they helped us to relax and took care of all the details. All of the... More

We wanted to find a place were we can enjoy birding, swimming in the ocean and relaxing . Thus was an amazing place. When we arrived there a a driver waiting for us to take to a boat and transfer us to the lodge. Yearling, the lodge receptionist was waiting for us with a nice fruited drink which we enjoyed...

From the minute you arrive at the dock you are greeted with warmth and service from Adrian, his family and employees. The exceptional service continued throughout our stay. The excursions are led by wonderful staff, with a shout out to Tico and Fernando!! The rooms are spotless, the pool area is welcoming with a wonderful view and the bar, once... More

We were booked at Poor Man's Paradise originally which was totally unsanitary and had to move. These folks took us in and treated us beautifully. Upon arriving by boat, they hustle your bags up the steps and you are presented with a scented cool towel to wash your hands and face after the boat ride. Then you sit down immediately... More

What a great spot to spend a week (or more) in Costa Rica. My family and I spent a week there over Christmas and enjoyed most of the available tours (we didn't get to do all of them for lack of time). Adrian and the staff are super friendly and go out of their way to help out or just... More

We stayed here at the end of rainy season for 5 nights, and were wowed too many times to count! The hospitality is THE BEST I've experienced in all my travels. The team here has hospitality so dialed in that they should write books about it! Marleney, Adrian, and Yerlin are genuinely sweet people, and their graciousness elevates them above... More
