First time in Drake Bay. Took a lower non AC room to avoid the hike. Glad I did it really is 180 steps from the bar and the upper room. The waterfront room is sizable and very close to the dining area. It is open air and just above the water. The staff works hard to make sure you are... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and I am so glad we made a stop at Drake Bay. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel there. We stood 3 nights and we didn't want to leave the area. Their rooms up top all have amazing views and are very spacious. It accommodated my wife and 3 kids comfortably.... More

Having just spent 9 days in Costa Rica, our 3 nights at Jinetes De Osa was hands down the highlight of our trip! Travelling with a 3 and 5 year old can sometimes be a challenge and we were unsure how we would go but the kids had just as much fun as we did and didn't want to leave.... More

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.

I will always recommend this hotel first when I talk about Costa Rica. 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
