Perfect for price and location. Was able to check in early and Ingrid and Claudio were very friendly. They helped me to get to tour I booked and provided any information I needed. Hammocks were great to lounge on during the rainstorms and rooms were cool enough with the fan!

We stayed in the rental house next to the hotel. It was perfect for our group of 6(4 adults and 2 kids). It was nice, clean, and had everything we needed to be comfortable. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. They helped us arrange the tours we wanted and made sure we were well taken care of. They have... More

We booked the private cabinas here. Wasn't quite what we expected. We wished we would have spent some more money for better value. Especially during the summer it's so hot and humid in Drake Bay; you're sweating from sunrise till sunset. We wanted to come 'home' in a nice place. Plus: - Taxi from the beach to accommodation upon arrival... More

Stayed in a private room which was of a adequate size and with mosquitero. Bathrooms were clean! Liked the hammocks in Front of the room and the jungle noises I could hear when Fällung asleep. Staff was very friendly. I didn't like bahia Drake too mich though, exceptfor the very good snorkeking/diving near isla caña I wouldn't say it's worth... More

This place is perfect for anyone on a budget. I was a bit worried about the shared bathroom situation at first but there was only one other room taken when we where there (in the high season) so it was quite peaceful. Even if they were all full (5 rooms) I think it would be fine. I loved the outdoor... More

We stayed just one night at Cabinas Manolo and were lucky to have an upstairs room with a nice balcony: although there is no A/C, the fans worked well and there were few mosquitos (in early Jan). The service was average, depending on who was at the front desk. BEWARE the tours, though: it's hit or miss with the guides!... More

We stayed for four nights, it was the highlight of our trip. Great surroundings, jungle all around and birds to see from your own patio. The room was big and clean. The restaurant just had opened when we were there, food made with love. Breakfast and dinner! They offer a lot of tours and take care of everything for you,... More

Nice place to relax after a long drive. Really nice family and you can book all your tours at the reception. Restaurant is only open for breakfast but it is only a short walk from the little village. Would stay there again

For the price range, this is is one of the most comfortable, clean, and pretty rooms I have had in my travels, it was big and well ventilated (very important!) We visited during low season, the restaurant was closed but that didnt bother us. We almost had the whole place to ourselves. The owners were very helpful, but not overly... More

They were very nice at the beggining, but once they realized that we would not book some of the their tours with them due to weather conditions they weren't helpful at all. Noise cabins, far away from the City Centre (specially very isolated at night) and restaurant much more expensive than other in Drake Bay.
