During our visit, Miguel (one of the three owners that shift management every 4 months) was our host. Very helpful, open minded, proactive and the nice person you would like to spend your holidays with. The food is very nice and you always eat at a huge table together with all the guests, which is a lot of fun and...

Finca Maresia offers seclusion, a surround of trees and sloping hills. From our superior room there are approximately 60 cement pavers uphill to the main dining building. Breakfast is included, simple but good. Dinners each evening are optional. The communal table is a pleasant way to end the day, sharing stories of the daily adventures. The menu is very simple...

Lovely place to say up in the hills away from the beach. We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed it very much. Lots of opportunities see the sights all easily arranged. Food arranged here too if you don't fancy going back into town. Would recommend.

Every evening we ate delicious 4-course meals at the communal table and chatted with the other interesting guests about their adventures in the Osa Peninsula. Our host Miguel took care of every detail in a professional and competent manner. In addition...

A most lovely and unique setting, beautifully run. A jewel in Drake Bay. We have been twice and would come back again. Bird songs and monkeys are the only interruptions and that's only one great feature.

We stayed in a superior room which is a wonderful open air personal bungalow. The deck had 2 hammocks where you can watch the sun rise and set. It was incredibly relaxing to sway in while watching the birds and listening to the jungle sounds. I love that this isn't a typical hotel, but a series of small bungalows that...

We stayed in both the superior and the standard room. The difference is that the superior room has 2 beds (both a double as opposed to 2 twins pulled together) and a posher bathroom with lots of hot water. We thought the beds in the standard room were more comfortable and as big singles pulled together made for a big...

We stayed a few days to Finca Maresia between 3 and 7 of january 17. We wanted to find a place as close as possible of the forest but still not too far from the beach. We were very happy with our stay. We disconnected very quickly and managed to do all the tours planed very easily. Miguel, Susana and...
