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.

My son & I stayed at Hotel Jinetes de Osa for 3 nights at the tail end of our trip in Costa Rica. We were in one of the new rooms with air at the top of the hill. These rooms are brand new & are beautiful, with fantastic views of the ocean & surrounding area. Note there are 180... More

We moved here for two nights after discovering that our previous choice of accommodations had no running water. I had attempted to book us into Jinetes prior to our departure from the U.S but they did not have availability for all of our dates. We found them immediately after our arrival to Drake Bay whilst walking along the beach. Had... More

I loved this hotel! It was a really exotic location, we even saw crocs swimming on the sea from our balcony and a scarlet macaw came to eat from a tree right next to our room two morinings in a row. The food was fantastic! Kate makes the best Caipirinha in the world and I lived in brasil. There is... More

The hotel is located on the water within walking distance to the town. The rooms are simply furnished with a fan, some with a bathroom and some sharing which is never a problem as it is always clean. The hotel is simplistic in its design allowing you to connect with the beauty of the Osa Penninsula; falling asleep and waking... More

The owner was very understanding when I had to move my dates for our stay due to an ear infection. According to their cancellation policy he could have charged me 100% of the room but agreed to just move my dates. Very grateful for that. Just like the owner the staff is also excellent. They are super friendly and helpful... More

We had a pleasant stay at Jinetes de Osa. The room was comfortable. The sound of the waves down below was so loud that we needed ear plugs which we used throughout our trip in Costa Rica because it gets loud at night with all the wildlife around. There is no swimming off the beach there; not that you would... More

The team was very welcoming and well informed of our stay. My boyfriend and I were able to get our diving certificate here also. The food is AMAZING! I loved the idea that everyone ate together at the same table. We met so many lovely people! For me it was like summer camp all over again. Everything was well planned,... More
