Staff very very nice. Rustic rooms with no ac. Very poor wifi but that's not what you're here for. Sign in bathrooms requests you, for the sake of their septic tank, don't put ANY?! paper in the toilets. The chef at the Retaurant is outstanding. I was one of the first to have the steak with chocolate sauce with sliced... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in early January and loved every minute of it. The room itself was cozy and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. I especially appreciated the giant open shower. It was a pleasant surprise to find a pot of coffee waiting for us outside our door when we woke up. The location is... More

Jinetes is really a special place. It's location is stunning, for one. Gorgeous views of the bay in front, and the lush green jungle behind, with sounds of the ocean at night and toucans in the morning. Drake bay itself is quaint little town surrounded by some of the best ( as in beautiful and everywhere) wild life I have... More

We were very happy with this small hotel outside the Corcovada national park. We went there to dive, and they are attached to a very professional, very nice dive shop, so every morning we had breakfast, and walked over to the dive boat for a 45 minute trip to Canos Island. They did all they could to make our stay... More

My son and I came for a week to scuba dive. Ivan, the dive master was top notch. Giovanni, the hotel's manager did a great job of coordinating all of our activities. We loved the atmosphere of hanging out with travelers. The room was beautiful with a magnificent view. Just be aware of the 180 steps to get to that... More

The rooms on the beach are preferred if available. We enjoyed our stay here and very much appreciated the food and restaurant. New owners have taken over the food and we really enjoyed all of their offerings. Walking distance to everything in and around lovely Drake. The staff to be very helpful - Giovanni & Sarah. Bit of tropical paradise... More

After spending an incredible time with Jinetes in March, 2015, my husband and I decided to take our three teenage daughters to Costa Rica for Christmas/New Year of 2016. We weren't positive which date we would arrive at Drake's Bay, as we had rented a car and were adventuring our way down the coast with fingers crossed that we could... More

Hotel is fine if you can book the rooms beside the ocean. We booked late and ended up with a lodge on the top of hill in the jungle without ocean view. You have to be fit to have a room on the top of hill. Your calfs would be very very sore and tight! Let's be fair, the room... More

We loved our (brief) stay at Jinetes de Osa while in Drake Bay. We were pretty shocked by the prices of other hotels in the area, and honestly didn't have great expectations when we booked here, but we were VERY impressed. The rooms were really nice, though the A/C rooms are up about 10 flights of stairs, so plan ahead.... More
