The hotel is placed on a hill side at the beach, and we were lucky to get a room with a nice terrace overlooking the beautifull bay. The breakfast was nice and the staff very helpfull. Very good value at a great spot in interesting Drake Bay.

An off-the-charts delightful stay in beautiful Drake Bay. Great rooms, inspiring views, a great value, helpful fun staff and a launching point to El Corcovado National Park. Breakfast in the treetops. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay (if you can handle the 100 steps up to the room from the road (no escalator here). I'd highly recommend... More

Nice view and good housing, but we were disappointed about the bill when we left : it did not correspond to the price agreed before ($100 instead of $80). We did a snorkeling tour to caño island which was nice but still expensive, as most of the other activities.

Great location in the center of Drake (literally 2 minutes from the main beach - which is not too pretty though), great ocean view from on-site restaurant, clean and comfortable cabin that was cleaned daily. Staff was okay and helpfull too, especially upon checkout when they arranged our transport back to San Jose (at normal costs). While we did spot... More

A beautiful little resort in a very funky little community, but be prepared for a long hike up stairs. Rooms are situated in such a way that there is a lot of privacy, has a beautiful outdoor breakfast area overlooking the ocean. We stayed in the highest level room and LOVED IT. Be aware that not all rooms have AC... More

Staying at Las Cotingas is literary as being integrated into a warm costarican family! They take really good care of you - give good advice on tours and arrange everything!

We were enjoying our beautiful view and bungalow....until we returned to the hotel after a long day hike in Corcovado to find money missing from the safe. We left our key with the front desk, which had the safe key on it. We thought there would be no problems. We had money taken from three different bundles of money. My... More

Thanks for visiting us. Hi there, I researched as much as possible about this case and I could not find a way that this money has disappeared from your safe. I tought that maybe someone could break into your room, but you did not lose more money or any value stuff. Only a small specific amount of money. In 8... More

it's paradise! location, view, cabins, room equipment and facilities, staff, breakfast, information about and organisation of tours - everything was perfect! (we were just sad not to be able to say goodbye to Mauricio, the owner, because he wasn't there when we left...)

We love to stay at places that are not the norm. We don't book luxurious hotels because we enjoy being immersed in the culture of where we are. This place gives you that. Drake Bay as a whole doesn't have many modern conveniences. Therefore, I don't believe it's fair to criticize this gem. It is what it is, which is... More
