We visited the DBWL and had one of our best vacations ever. Every day was an adventure, the food was very good, the staff very attentive and the host family most welcoming! Edgar and Marleny held a beautiful vision! The resort juts out on a small peninsula affording bay and ocean views. Spectacular lightening shows and sunsets. The sounds of... More

My Brother and I had a wonderful time at Drake Bay in this very laid back & comfortable eco-resort. Wonderful staff, and the tours were excellent. Even saw humpback whales on our snorkel trip out to the island nearby The resort is on a craggy point so not good for swimming, but 10-15 min up the coast there is a... More

Great boat journey to get to the hotel. First impressions were not brilliant but we found the hotel a really good stop. The trips were very good and the staff were good. The food was better than anticipated. This is a very quiet hotel and the bar closed quite early. You come here for the fantastic views and wildlife. We... More

I stayed at the drake bay wilderness resort for 4 days with a study abroad tour. My experience was fantastic. From the first time we got off the boat through when we left my experience was resoundingly positive. Adrian, Abraham, and Mickey stood out to me especially. I just wanted to thank them again and to anybody considering travel to... More

This place was awesome, whether a family vacation, honeymoon, corporate team building or just that yearned for weekend escape. The staff were so friendly and attentive, the food excellent, our rooms spotlessly clean and cared for throughout our stay. The views, seaside pool and beaches are magnificent. Hikes are unlimited and the locals are so welcoming. Kayak, swim, fishing.... I... More

I have been to the Osa Peninsula many times and stayed in lots of local resorts. The Osa is a ecological paradise. It was described by "National Geographic" as the most diverse area on earth! Of all the inns I've tried, Drake Wilderness Resort is my favorite. I have stayed there maybe 6 different times.. I can assure you it's... More

Visited Drakes Bay resort at the start of our honeymoon travelling around Costa Rica, taking the boat and entering from Sierpe, with the main motivation being Corcavado. The resort was very quiet when we were there, which meant the atmosphere was a little lacking, but we understand that was a sign of the times and not a reflection of the... More

Loved the lodging, beautiful grounds, wonderful personnel. Pulling up to the hotel was like a scene from a movie. At first it seemed a little rustic but it was all part of the natural charm of the place. I would not change one single thing. The rooms had murals painted by loving hands and the beds had hand carved ant... More

We started off our visit to Drake Bay via a helicopter trip from Los Suenos. Adrian and Abraham were fantastic, opening the bar for us, treating us to fantastic food & drinks, most of all treating us like friends and making this the experience of a lifetime for our friends and ourselves. They special ordered a bottle of champagne from... More
