Another fantastic holiday at Crocodile Bay 💜 Will be returning next year. Spent a week in paradise We arrived in San Jose early, so ended up taking an early flight to resort. (So arrived a few hours early) Spoke to Leah at the front desk and nothing was a bother. She was amazing. Crocodile bay is like our second home. The staff and management are the best. Special thanks to Todd, Diego, Serena, German, Sharly, Olimpia, Dennis for always looking after us. Dave Kanski was our booking agent and is one of the reasons we travel to Costa Rica. He knows his stuff and takes care of every detail. Highly recommend him 😁 Fishing was a okay, everyday on the water was a very enjoyable experience. Great lunches on the water. And tons of marine life and stunning landscapes. Boats and equipment well maintained. The resort is amazing. Wildlife everywhere and beautiful jungle like grounds. The food is amazing. Fresh seafood every night if you wish. Tried the spa for first time and it was a amazing. Had a very sore muscle issue in right leg. My therapist worked on it every other day and now I am pain free. Many thanks to Monika 😁 So anyone looking to for a fishing/eco resort, Crocodile Bay Is the place to go. Highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed Looking forward to next year 🎣🐟🎣

Thanks to all at the resort Olympia, Maria and Flory to name a few. All the fishing Captain and Mates are amazing. Our booking agent for Crocodile Bay David couldn't be more helpful. Hands down the best experience. Meal were incredible as well as boat lunches. We really can't say enough good about Crocodile Bay and the people.

Crocodile Bay...the people, the fishing and the amazing Osa Penisula are what keep us coming back again and again. My son(19) and I just returned from a week at Crocodile Bay with 3 days of fishing...and 7 days of special memories. The fishing...tuna, roosters, sail fish and a marlin! Days spent out on the water with Captain Anthony Santos and mate Lleandro were just awesome days. These guys are professionals...and just great guys! Having Todd Staley back as the Director of Fishing gives the lodge immense fishing knowledge but also the importance of conservation. Anything we needed or wanted these guys took care of...big shout out to Diego who works with Todd to run the fishing operations. I requested that someone catch me some tuna…so that I could have sashimi for dinner and these guys got right on it! Plus you know when, Mark Davis from Big Water Adventures is there to film an episode you have made the right decision for the fishing! He, his crew and family could not have been nicer people...and love this place, and the people as much as we do. The lodge is just a special place. It is not fancy but comfortable, and beyond well run. Ms. Olimpia who is basically the team Mom, and as my son says “the lungs of the lodge.” She not only deals with everything you might need or want...she just breathes vibrant life into everything she does. From the moment you arrive until you leave, Ms Olimpia and everyone there treat you like family. We met other families from newlyweds to a family with young children that all felt the same way. The food is fresh and delicious. And plentiful…my son eats alot! The ecotours are so fun but also so educational. The Osa is a place that continues to amaze us each time we go. There is always more to see and discover...waterfalls, hiking and again, most importantly, the people. Dennis and Diego, the ecoguides, are again amazing. And the spa…awwwwwwww. Massages and chocolate wraps are first rate. Gloriana and all the ladies at the spa are great! Crocodile Bay is a special place. Yes, it is a fishing lodge, and a world class, first rate one at that but more importantly to my son and I it is a place that brings family and all kinds of people together to share in an amazing part of the world. Just go...

We stayed here for a few days to concentrate on some fishing both inshore and offshore This is a lovely resort and there is a lovely lady called Olympia Who offers you a very friendly greeting upon your arrival and indeed makes cookies for you to throw into the sea before you start fishing as a lucky omen for the day The accommodation whilst not luxurious is quite acceptable and it is very clean and around the resort there is a very happy atmosphere of people sharing tales of the days expeditions adventures and fishing stories Our Captain Sharley and his mate David Really looked after us and we certainly knew this stuff and we ended up catching some massive sailfish rooster fish snappers and allsorts of other bits and bobs and it was a fantastic two days fishing I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this resource and I very much hope that we will have the opportunity of revisiting in the not too distant future

Every year my friend and I in the UK have an overseas saltwater fishing trip. We have been to Venezuela, Cuba, Belize, Mexico and Christmas Island (Kiritimati) among others and this time chose Crocodile Bay lodge. We were not disappointed. We had a fantastic six days of fishing, four off-shore and two in-shore. Off-shore we caught several mahi mahi, eight sailfish up to 120 pounds and on the last day a 250-pound marlin, all giving a wonderful experience, The in-shore fishing was equally good and we caught lots of rooster fish up to a monster of 80 pounds, plus jacks, pompano, mahi mahi and snappers. The boat and equipment were excellent and captain Humberto and mate Marcel outstanding. They consistently put us on fish and were fun to fish with, providing an enjoyable and informative atmosphere on the boat. We plan to return and would happily fish with them again. On-shore, everything to do with the fishing was well organised and we had not a single hitch. The lodge itself was excellent - the best we have experienced. The surroundings are beautiful and full of wild life. There were monkeys swinging in the trees near our room when we arrived. The rooms are very nice and spacious, with good air conditioning and Wifi and there is a nice pool, which was very welcome at the end of a day’s fishing. The restaurant food was great and the wine included with dinner much better than expected (Chilean Merlot). Without exception the staff at the lodge were friendly and helpful, with the tone set by Olimpia at the front. Finally, the lodge’s travel arrangements, from being met at San Jose airport, taken to the top class Doubletree Hilton hotel for a stop-over, being taken back for the internal flight to Puerto Jimenez, being met there for transfer (5 minutes) to the lodge, and the reverse of it all at the end of the trip, all went perfectly. All in all, a great trip. We will be back!
