Our visit to Copa de Arbol couldn't have been nicer. We live in Costa Rica, and due to the pandemic, all of our travel plans were cancelled. We decided to take this unique opportunity to explore more of Costa Rica. We looked specifically for a place where the virus hadn't made an impact and landed on Drake Bay in the Osa Peninsula, and it turned out to be a great choice. We found Copa de Arbol and were immediately impressed by the way in which they worked with us to arrange our trip. Randal (the wonderfully friendly and efficient general manager) met us on the beach as we arrived by boat from Drake Bay. We were taken back by the sheer beauty of the wonderfully kept jungle grounds. Once at the main lodge, Henry (who turned out to be our waiter/bartender during our stay) met us with a tasty fresh juice drink, and took very good care of us each and every time we stepped foot into the restaurant. Juan, our chef did an incredible job of providing delicious meals. Our cabina had everything we could have needed. A two story building situated in a private spot in the jungle (yet near to the main lodge and pool), had a open air kitchen on the first floor with the sleeping quarters and awesome sitting porch on the second level. Although we didn't use it, there was air conditioning in the bedroom and good internet service in each room as well (which proved to be nice during the one rainy day we had). The resort has a lot to do, with hiking trails, kayaks, paddle boards and availability to other tours and services. Although the resort is amazing, the real gems are the staff. I am sure that their lives during the pandemic have been difficult like most people who thrive on tourism here in Costa Rica, but you certainly wouldn't know it. The entire staff were super friendly and helpful and greeted us each day with a warmth you typically only get from family. Last but not least, we thoroughly enjoyed the two adopted dogs that the lodge looks after. Roxy and Starfruit were very well behaved and quiet, yet frolicked endlessly with each other on the beach and provided a cool nose to anyone who reached out to them. We loved our time at Copa de Arbol and urge others who are able, to give this amazing resort a visit. I promise, you won't regret it.

We took the boat ride to the resort after a nice drive from the municipal airport. We were greeted on the beach with a warm welcome from Randall and Erik. Then we were escorted to the front desk where they served us a refreshing drink and a cool towel. The room and deck were amazing with a great view of the ocean. Everyday we were given choices of delicious meals ordered ahead of time. Mario and Henry were the main restaurant staff we interacted with. They were educational and funny! All of the restaurant staff were great though! They accomodated serving us beyond normal meal hours based on the tours we took. We were so happy with the Cano Island tour with Alexa who did everything to make sure we saw as much beautiful sea life as possible. The La Dante jungle tour with Gustavo was our highlight. He is so knowledgable. If you want to experience the magic of Drake Bay don't miss this tour. Everything about our experience here more than met our expectations. We highly reccommend it! Pura Vida!

The facilities are lovely. We stayed for 4 nights in the "duplex" of room #10. (It is the only attached space). However, we had no neighbors, so we had the whole porch to ourselves: chairs, table, hammock and view of the sea. The sea here is very calm, more of a bay. You have to choose where to swim because there are lava rocks along the shore. The hotel pool is lovely (including a hot tub portion) but for soaking, now swimming. The food was generally very good, sometimes excellent, sometimes not as good. Very much oriented to U.S./European taste. The staff in the restaurant were very accommodating, especially Greivin who spoke excellent English and went out of his way to answer our questions and provide us with food we liked. We felt quite comfortable telling him what we preferred and he would help us to have it. All the tours we took were arranged through the hotel. They have their own guides. I was pleased to have Elia both for the national park and Cano Island snorkeling. The trip we took the third day, to "a waterfall" was not as satisfying. We liked that the tour involved local people in a way that encouraged them to maintain the land in a healthy way, but we could only look at the waterfall from above because the descent was too difficult. As it was, the hike to the waterfall and back up to the vehicle was quite challenging. We didn't go out in the kayaks because you had to kayak through the bay to get to the river and we were told that the river had strong winds so that half the time you were fighting the wind.

Don't need to repeat all of the positive remarks, they are true. The best thing about this place, though, is the people. The service in the restaurant is up to fine dining standards in big cities, but with so much more friendliness and care. Special shout-outs to Greivin and Mario and the others for the fun interactions and the little Spanish tutoring. We really enjoyed our stay there.

The resort was beautiful and provided excellent food and service. We had a great time. One of the few in the area that provide air conditioned cabins - a serious perk for me! The managers hooked us up with good fishing, snorkeling, and hiking activities as well. Everyone also spoke excellent English, which helped us out a lot.
