We loved Ranchoo Corcovado - a lovely place right on the beach. We had a 'deluxe' room that overlooked the beach - very spacious with two full walls of windows & air conditioning. It can be quite hot, so having AC is a good respite & given the views we were happy to spend some day time inside reading. With the view, you felt very close to being outside. Wonderful manager & excellent staff. Food was excellent, though just good after two large tour groups arrived. Rancho run several activities out of the hotel - trips to Corcovado National Park, snorkeling & I think opportunities to fish (we didn't do that, but the staff came in with some very large & beautiful fish, including red snapper). Our tour company arranged a tour of the national park with another hotel - the one run by the Rancho is definitely better. They go farther into the park, where you have a real opportunity to see animals. The good sized staff is clearly happy with where they work and that showed in the quality of their service. Yes, internet is available only at the open aired eating & sitting area, which was fine. We could download and then read later. We had looked online before going so we could see there was no dock or pier - the regular boat service from Sierpe gets as close to the beach as possible, then you walk into the water for a very short walk to the beach. (The ride down the Sierpe River was also fun) Staff takes your bags. It was a wonderful introduction to a beach location. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Basic hotel. We had a room with an ocean view up a hill. Water taxi to get there no pier so wet feet getting to hotel. No WiFi in rooms which was a shame. Walls paper fine. Breakfast fine. Nice staff. No AC in room. Over priced but nice enough.

Stayed here with my daughter (22) for 7 nights. It was rainy season so I don’t think we were there at the best time. Couldn’t really sit out on the beach but there was other things to do. Room was large with an amazing view of the ocean, beds clean, huge and comfortable. Air con was brilliant and a must as was the ceiling fan. Room was serviced well every day, Our food was included so we just went down and our meals were served to us. Good healthy food, adequate quantities. We were asked if we had allergies or preferences and said no so we were just given food each day, no menu to choose from as such, but that was fine for us. Always coffee or tea available. Staff were so friendly and helpful, lovely people. Couple of small things to consider. There’s no Wi-Fi in the rooms, no tv but we didn’t mind that. Few power cuts that went on for several hours, so maybe take a torch 😊. No fridge in room and not a great choice of soft drinks in the restaurant area, just beer, water or juice. We walked to the shop for supplies and just asked for ice and glasses. The manager is great and knowledgeable about all the tours and can organise everything for you, his English is very good. Finally this is not a luxury hotel so don’t go there if that’s what you want. its clean, comfortable and everyone is just lovely, it was perfect for what we needed.

Not 100 meters, nor 5 minutes. The hotel is on the beach itself. Rooms that extend into terraces surround the dining room. From then on dry sand, wet sand and sea, which causes you to use it day and night. All the dawns will have boats that will take you to the Corcovado National Park or to the Isla del Caño. In the afternoon in the shade of the palm trees a woman will offer you a body massage, accept it with all confidence.

Hotel Rancho Corcovado is in a great location with much wildlife. The hotel is of a basic standard with many of the rooms a fair walk from the lobby at night the paths are not lit. They do not have air conditioning which makes sleeping hard and the rooms very basic. The location makes up for it. Beware of the beech landing on arrival and select approprite clothing and footware.
