Our stay at Jinetes Osa Hotel was a amazing due to the unbelievable experience given to us by Ivan, our dive master. My family wanted to get certified, I however was not thrilled!! My greatest fear... Drowning!! His presence was calming, his patience with my children and myself was more than remarkable! Nevertheless, I passed and now I am a... More

Sometimes there are unusual circumstances that come about during travel that provide an opportunity to really see what kind of service a hotel is capable of or willing to provide. Such circumstances arose with my booking at Jinetes de Osa, and they proved to exceed every possible expectation. When the worst kind of family emergency arose and I had to... More

Despite a rocky start to our visit to lovely drake bay - we were told that they didn't have availability for us for a five night stay, despite booking in July - they after some disagreement did find us a room.... What a relief.... This really is a lovely spot over looking the beach, with the sound of waves breaking... More

Wonderful people are there to great you, with amazing food and a glorious view. My little room was at the very end, with no air con, but with two fans. Lets face it, it is going to be hot, you are in the tropics. I survived and had a great stay with the nicest people around. Another review said they... More

This is the third lodge we stayed at during our Costa Rican trip. It is not a four star, by American standards. It is gauging by what we experienced elsewhere. Location, only steps from the beach. (Not for swimming as much as for atmosphere.) The common area has the dinning area and bar. A balcony, up above, is great for... More

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...
