After travelling from the north of the Caribbean coast and all the way down the Pacific coast we finished here and spent our last 3 days trekking Corcovado NP and snorkelling around Cano Island. Our meals were included in our package and although there was no choice the food served was really good. We stayed in room 18 which had... More

Rancho Corcovado, a family owned and run business, is located on the Pacific coast with comfortable seating and beautiful views of the Ocean. Many of the tours start at this hotel and the town of Drake Bay is only 300 yards up the hill so it is ideally located. The Manager, Roger Gonzalez, is friendly, welcoming and helpful to book...

There are not a lot of choices for lodging in Drake Bay, but we found Rancho Corcovado to be very acceptable. The rooms were rustic, but very clean, and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was included, and quite nice. Dinners were superb. The dining room is open to the public, but You must let the hotel know in the... More

We accessed ( and I think most) via boat taxi. Wear water shoes... Buildings/hotel are detached -- rooms are grouped, dining/common area separate-close to beach (nice). Rooms were clean, simple, a/c (we only used @ nite). You have to be physically fit -- enough to go up and down: steps, hills, etc. The best place was on the beach. Oddly,... More

Its tough to get to but once you are here and start to relax its heaven, We took a speed boat out Sierpa up the Sierpa River to the ocean, getting out to the ocean was a white knuckler and then travelled down the coast to Drake Bay. You jump out of the back of the boat with you luggage... More

Rancho Corcovado is located on the beach at the spectacular Bahia Drake, surrounded by beautiful gardens teeming with wildlife. The family who run it are charming and helpful and so are the staff. The food in the beachside restaurant is well-cooked, tasty, local fare and drinks are available from the kitchen. However, it is usually hot and humid and would... More

Beware of the showers if you stay at this hotel! Ours caught on fire 5 minutes after my husband and I were finished showering. Very scary experience! We alerted the hotel manager, who was able to move us to another room. This new room, however, had no a/c, a thin mattress, was buggy, and had an even scarier-looking shower with... More

Spent 5 nights here on our first trip to Costa Rica. We knew the local climate would be harsh to our Canadian bodies and we weren't wrong. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and did everything possible to keep us comfortable. The food was amazing though we were often too hot and exhausted to enjoy the portion sizes. The ladies...

The best aspects of Rancho Corcovado are the location and gardens. It is located right by the beach and within walking distance of the 2 shops and restaurants in Drake Bay. We stayed for almost 2 weeks which is too long for this location. Our first room was in a block at the top of the property (rooms 8, 9... More

Stayed here 3 nights. First night we were given a standard room (booked by our Travel agency). These rooms are quite small and not so comfortable (hot, only a little fan). First night was kind of sweaty. Asked the manager for upgrade to room with airco (superior). He was very helpfull. We spend the other 2 nights in airconditioned room... More
