We had the best time at the Drake Bay Greenleaf! Everything there was to our liking: beautiful setting /views, spacious rooms with huge balcony, private trail in a jungle in the resort itself , the most delicious meals three times a day with the most artistic presentation and even the home made nutritional , and very delicious bars that we were given for a snack to take on our daily tours! The owners Helen and Steve are the most thoughtful, caring and very personal. Staying at the resort felt as we had a private driver, a private chef, and a private tour planner! Would highly recommend to all of my friends and family.

Drake Bay Greenleaf was amazing! The room was spotless with lots of space with a large balcony with stunning views of Drake Bay and forests. The room has Air Conditioning which was refreshing when it got hot. This is a birders paradise with toucans, macaws, hummingbirds, eagles, and much more flying around the property. Sloths and monkeys too! They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport and even did our laundry before leaving, very appreciative and nice touches to make our trip in Costa Rica easy! And the food! The food here is amazing and personalized. Breakfast can be brought to your room and meals catered to dietary restrictions. Delicious fish, juices, and tasty vegetarian options. They can organize tours too! Very quiet place and perfect to disconnect (but good wifi too) Thank you so much!

Drake Bay Greenleaf was our home for 3 nights. What an amazing place that owners Helene and Steve created. It was like staying in a private hotel with a private chef, concierge and a driver. Everything was tailored to our preferences. The rooms are wonderful with an amazing views. The food was like in six stars restaurant: the quality, taste and presentation are all top notch. It was my husband's birthday. Not only he got a nice, totally unexpected, gift from the owners, but Helen also made a very special desert for him (with no sugar). The owners arrange trips to Corcovado and private reserve and fishing. We loved every minute of our stay. Helen and Steve are one of the nicest people we met on our trip. Thank you for everything and we will be back!!!!

Feels like home with incredible views and excellent food. Helen and her husband is making this place very personal to fulfill all of your needs. She was helping me to send a parcel together with her mother, it was so sweet, like you have the best friend there. The room was super comfy and perfectly clean. I can highly recommend if you’re looking for the best service ever :)

This hotel features 4 independent bungalows in the midst of a beautiful peaceful garden. You can see a lot of animals around (birds, frogs, sloths…) Every bungalow and the dining area have a fantastic ocean view, a big terrace to practice Yoga or have drinks and enjoy the beautiful sunrise every morning. The whole crew is amazing and treats you very well. The meals and drinks are outstanding (see pictures), lunch is a 2-course and dinner a 3-course menu. I also want to point out that the staff respects the Covid-guidelines all the time wearing masks and providing hand sanitizers, so you feel safe during your stay. Hellen is always at your disposal and organizes anything you may need or wish: transfers (flights/boat/taxi driver), tours, activities. She grew up in Bahia Drake and has a lot of connections and friends, you have a local at your side. Her husband Steven will drive you anywhere anytime, so you just lean back and enjoy. It’s the best place to unwind and spend an amazing vacation. - activities: hiking/walking, beach, diving/snorkeling, kayak, Corcovado Nationalpark, horse Riding - AC/WiFi/hot water (of course) working perfectly For any questions or wishes, just contact Hellen. Thank you very much for making my stay unforgettable, I had a wonderful time and will miss you a lot.
