It was the first week the hotel reopened after a break for the low season so it was slow in the hotel but we had a lovely stay. We had a room that was huge, had AC ( a must!) newly renovated and although a hike up, we had great views from the height looking onto the bay, with toucans... More

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days at Jinetes. We did two days of diving and one hike. The diving was at Cano island- absolutely spectacular. Every day we saw whales on the way to the island. The hike was equally amazing. It was the beginning of rainy season so rained for 1-2 hours each day, but it did not... More

We loved our trip to Drake Bay and Jinetes de Osa is the perfect place to stay. It is extremely comfortable and friendly. From the dining area - you can hear the waves from the bay while enjoying great conversations with the other guests. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We stayed in one of the newly constructed rooms with... More

The resort is remote but very nice. The staff was helpful in booking the excursions. The room was clean but they need to update the bathroom floor mats and the towels. It is nice to have big bath towels at this type of resort. The food was okay. I did expect some more fish and seafood apart of the meal.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. Although the area was lovely, we would not recommend Jinetes. There is a choice between a room that was closer but without air con, or walking up 180 steps to the newer bungalows at the top that had air con. We stayed in the newer bungalow, the steps were...

We did not stay at Jinetes de Osa hotel, but went scuba diving with them twice at Caño Island. There are some great dive sites there! Ivan, the diving instructor, was very friendly and skilled, as was the rest of the staff. We can highly recommend them for scuba diving, with good-quality equipment (we rented all our equipment). Included in... More

First off the hotel is located in a fairly isolated area in the bay area. Its sheltered by a lot of trees and natural formations. My wife and I were in Costa Rica from July 26th til Aug 2nd and we were staying in the Dominical area in a house my father rented. We originally had not plannee anything else... More

Had a great time at Jinetes de Osa. The location is stunningly beautiful. There is a very long hiking trail right from the resort along the coast that leads one to find numerous private beaches and explore the rainforest. unbelievable natural biodiversity is found everywhere. Corcovado national park is well worth the visit, as is the night tour and horseback... More

We just spent a week in Jinetes De Osa and it was a once in lifetime experience. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure. The hotel totally exceeded our expectations and the staff was more than welcoming! Fair warning: this review is going to be a bit lengthy, as I have a lot of positive... More

Very good option in Drake Bay. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We went diving with them and the guides were nice, the equipment was a little bit old, but fine. The staff was always very helpful.
