We LOVED it here! You have to set expectations accordingly because this is NOT the same experience the resorts elsewhere in the country. You have to fly a small plane to the Osa Peninsula, and then take a van about half hour through the countryside to the Drake’s Bay, and then walk through the surf into a small boat about 15 minutes to Copa De Arbol. Once there, 1) the rooms are fantastic and comfortable, 2) the staff is the most welcoming and charming of anywhere we’ve stayed and 3) the food is really just great! With all of that said- remember you’re in the jungle. This is the only place in Osa with air conditioning in the rooms and wi fi. While that is fantastic, you’re still in the jungle, so prepare that toilet paper gets thrown in the can and not flushed, and don’t expect to be going “into town” for anything. In order to get to Cocorvado National Park, it is about an hour boat ride in a bumpy boat with hard plastic seats. If you get queasy or have back issues, then this hour ride may not be for you. Once at Cocorvado, there is light hiking through the trails to see monkeys and more. It’s a trip I’d say for middle school kids and up. The hotel has a small pool overlooking the ocean and it is perfect because there are only about 9 villas on the property. There is a small beach where you can go paddle boarding, but don’t expect anything like lounging on an expansive Florida coast— that’s not what this is. There are some secluded beaches you can walk to within a half hour along the coast, but our middle school kids would not have been up for it. It would be a really good couples hike. If you are looking for zip lining or horseback riding, I’d suggest doing that in other parts of the country. While they offer it here, you’d have to take the boat into town to find a shack offering the tour you want, and that is just not really what you’d be going to Copa for. This is a place for of seclusion, hiking, beauty, nature and chilling. Overall, the best thing about this place are the people. We met the owner and his family who come occasionally from California, and they were so nice and wonderful that you can see the trickle down effect to Randall and the whole staff.

Hotel's Favorite
I wish I could give Copa de Arbol 10 stars!! It is a beautiful property in an amazing setting. Access to perfect beaches, pristine jungle, clear river swimming spots, lots of wildlife and right on a trail that easily takes you to all of it. But the people are what sets this hotel apart from every other one I have ever been to. Randall and Monica, thank you so much for being willing to go so far out of your way to care for your guests, truly extraordinary acts of human kindness that will always be appreciated. All of the staff were spectacular which tells you how well this property is managed. Good people hire good people and then give them the resources and freedom to to their jobs well. This is Copa de Arbol!!!

Visited this fabulous place with our 4 kids, such an amazing experience! The staff was awesome! The food was outstanding! The entire stay was so personal, our kids played soccer with other resort families and the staff on the beach! We woke to the sounds of the monkeys and rainforest every morning! Beautiful views! The resort arranged deep sea fishing, scuba diving and got us tickets and a guide to the Corcovado National Park! It was hard to say goodbye! Such magical memories made!!!

We stayed here three nights. It is a true paradise. You will see a lot of animals without even leaving the resort, like monkeys and toekans. The beach is the most beautiful you have ever seen. The accommodations are good and the air conditioning works good. The service and food is excellent. Special diets are no problem, they will make special meals for you. You can make great tours like snorkeling at Caño island, hiking in the area or Corcovado, bird watching and enjoy the beautiful nature of this area. I saw large turtles during my snorkeling trip. Everything was amazing.

Copa de Arbol was exactly what we were looking for in Costa Rica - away from the crowds and with beautiful scenery. However, what really differentiated Copa de Arbol from the other amazing places to stay was the staff. They were completely exceptional and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They even took the time to learn our names! Particular thanks to Greivin, Randall, Henry, Albert and Starfruit (the hotel dog) for making our visit so outstanding. As we were only staying for 2 days we went snorkelling by Cano Island and saw a Sea Turtle and Sharks (the snorkelling was amazing and I highly recommend it) and Randall organised a boat ride up the coast for us to a secluded bay where we swam out to a small island and then walked back to the hotel, stopping to see a Sea Turtle hatching project where they were increasing the survival rate of the baby sea turtles by providing a safe area for the eggs. The food was as exceptional as the rest of the hotel, with different meals every night, which were always delicious. The sea was warm and enjoyable to swim in, and the hotel also has a pool with a jacuzzi. There are complimentary paddle boards, kayaks and canoes to use in the Sea. This is definitely one of the nicest places we have ever been to, made even more special by the incredible service and the amazing location.
