Ivan greeted us from the speedboat, when we landed in Drake Bay. He carried our cases over the rocks, and then on to the hotel.
From the minute that we stepped on the premises, we were made to feel welcome, comfortable and valued.
All of our food was provided, and it was great. For evening meals, we were served fish, beef stroganoff, and a chicken lasagne. Every portion was more than enough, delicious, and came with salad and rice. We received ice cream, cheesecake, and toffee cake for deserts.
Breakfasts were excellent as well. Eggs made to order (I had mine scrambled, with ham and cheese) were delicious.
If you organise trips through the hotel the starts are early, but there is always a big thermos of coffee waiting for you outside the hotel room for the minute you wake up. A really charming touch, that started the day off brilliantly.
Rooms are spotless, and the bathroom was big, with a hot shower. Perfect for after a long hike in the jungle :)
One piece of advice - REMEMBER to take sea sickness pils with you. These are very important. My father was very ill on the journey to our snorkel, which could have been avoided had we thought to bring the tablets.
A brilliant stay. Patrick the manager/owner (?) runs a very tight ship.
