I stayed here for 4 nights with my girlfriend in May 2015 and we loved it. When we arrived we were given the choice of the rooms with aircon up the stairs or the normal rooms, we chose an aircon room. The room was lovely with a nice patio door leading onto a balcony. From the bed we could see... More

Checked in after a long "got lost in the jungle" tour. Staff was very friendly and willing to accommodate us on a room with A/C. Guess what the exercise is free, they don't charge you an extra cent to walk up 180 stairs get A/C. After a long hike up we declined the A/C and took the room along the... More

We stayed at Jinetes de Osa in March this year and had a great time. The room was beautiful, up in the trees, with a wonderful porch. The staff is always helpful, we felt well taken care of. We would definitely return and tell friends about Jinetes. Caroline and Mac Johnson

Lovely lodge in drake bay the beach is amazing lovely boat ride through the mangroves to get there from sierpe . The rooms were spacious and clean food was good. The big draw is the national park which is about an hour away by boat. The local town is close by but there is a nightclub behind the hotel so... More

My son and I spent 5 nights here recently. It was a great experience. Don't trust the Internet weather forecast for Osa. It calls for storms frequently. We had about 10 minutes of rain and no thunder storms. We stayed in a room without air conditioning. It was hot, but after a night or two I began adjusting. My son... More

Don't expect luxury, basic bed bathroom, but the location will compensate for limited luxury. Hotel bar is overpriced $4 for a beer, all other hotels in this area charge $2. Nice basic breakfast is included.

The location is amazing and could be anything you want it to be, romantic, fun, relaxing, peaceful, exciting, friendly, safe, clean, it is everything and more! The staff is incredibly accommodating and friendly! The meals were fantastic, the tours you can do through the hotel were amazing,... More

My partner and I stayed here four nights just before the Christmas holiday in December 2014. We had a basic room close to the trail and beach which was plenty for us. There was a fan to cool us and circulate the air; the shower had hot and cold water; the towels and sheets were clean; there was privacy. Each... More

We wanted to avoid the Eco-lodge type all-inclusive experience and expense. We lucked our finding Jinetes- not fancy but clean, comfortable and very good staff. We took trip advisor reviews to heart and were happy searching out local restaurants rather than doing the meal plan. Breakfast was hearty and early enough to make our early trips to Corcovafo (magnificent) and... More

We stayed one day at Drake Bay during our trip to Costa Rica. After that one day, we wished we would have stayed longer! The staff was accommodating and helpful. We got stuck and they rallied a group to get us out of the sand. Thank you! The room was great. Comfortable beds clean a shower.
