My girlfriend and I stayed in the Tranquilo Lodge for three nights. Everything was perfect: (i) the rooms are big, clean and have air conditioner; (ii) the lodge is near from everything; (iii) the food was homemade and tasty; (iv) the staff booked all the tours on our behalf; (v) all payment methods are accepted (including Paypal); and (vi) the...

Myself, 3 friends and an 8-month-old baby stayed here in November 2014 for five nights and i can say with confidence that this amazing place is head and shoulders above all the other hotels in this magnificent region. Manager Mary and owner Herb could not have been more welcoming and both of them were very happy to help us in... More

My husband and I totally enjoyed our very memorable stay at Tranquilo Lodge! it was such a nice retreat from our normal hectic world. The staff was outstanding and helped to take care of every request we had or needed. We could have stayed forever just looking at the beautiful landscape, the sunsets, and the birds and monkeys! The meals... More

Awesome stay at the Tranquilo Lodge. We were in the mid level top room, very nice space for couple and a 8 month boy. No crib unfortunately so took our own pop-up. The gang looked after us really really well, great food every meal. The infinity pool up the hill is spectacular and worth the price alone. Highly recommended.

This review is way overdue but better late then never. We stayed at Tranquilo Lodge back in January and had a lovely time. The lodge had recently been taken over by new owners and the new website still was not quite up and running. It is a beautiful yet very comfortable lodge. We stayed in the upper room cabina and...

I really, reallly enjoyed my stay at Tranquilo Lodge. I was there 3 nights. I stayed in number 6. It was facing the road and had a view of the ocean. The room is very simple, wifi but no TV. Mary was great! She helped me get there from Sierpe. I took the shuttle from Manuel Antonio, then a boat... More

We spent one week at Tranquilo Lodge in July and had the best time ever! My husband and I stayed in Room 8, which is a separate bungalow with AMAZING views of the ocean and sunsets (and macaws, iguanas and parrots). My 18 year old twins stayed in a basic room in the lodge that was very adequate. I'd have... More

We stayed here for two nights and where picked up from the airstrip by our hostess. After a short drive we arrived at this amazing place. Our hostess told us that we got the room with the view and that was not a lie. The view was great and the room was very nice as well. Good beds, clean and... More

Fantastic personal service. The fresh homemade food menu changed every day and was delicious. We stayed in room 7, a spacious, prettily decorated room with a large veranda, hammock and rocking chairs; sit here in the morning and watch pairs of scarlet macaws arrive in the nearby trees to feed. A couple of minutes walk down to a deserted 5k... More

My husband and I stayed at Tranquilo Lodge for a week in July and absolutely LOVED it. I can’t say enough good things about our experience in Drake Bay and at the lodge. The view was breath-taking, our room (a top-level cabana) was perfect and private, the staff was superb, and Drake Bay had so many fun activities to offer.... More
