Note: We did not stay at the hotel, we only used the SCUBA/snorkeling excursions. Our group of 2 new-ish divers and 2 virgin snorkelers were picked up together from the stone dock at La Paloma. We all headed out in the dive boat to meet the snorkeling boat and trade some passengers, but found a pod of four humpback whales... More

Excellent place to hide. Plenty of possibilities to enjoy nature in a secluded, still virgin place. Very friendly owner and employees. Near the Corcovado Park, a beautiful, wildlife biological reservation. Also, at 18 kms (about 30 min by speedboat) from the Isla del Caño, a wonderful place for snorkeling. I recommend it without hesitation.

We've been 3 days/nights at this small boutique resort and found it a perfect hideaway place to stay, next to the beach and its natural surroundings of natural reserve Drakebay. Lodges are great and gives you that adventures feeling. We took a few tours and loved it, especially with Osa Rural Tours and its guide Danny Chavez hiking towards the... More

We spend 4 nights at Pirate Cove and really enjoyed our stay. Our kids (16-23yrs) shared a cabin and me and my wife stayed in a bungalow. The walls of the latter are made of cloth, so you're really close to nature! More than basic comfort is available and the staff is very helpful. Nelson got us set up in... More

Pirates cove is a beautiful property, we had a room with 5 beds, rooms are basic but the property is great, food is just fantastic, they cater to all kinds of food requests. Lots of activities to do and they organise everything. The rainforest night walk was amazing, the children loved it

We just returned from a lovely 4 days at Pirate Cove. The place is gorgeous! The sound of the waves right outside our room was so relaxing. The food was delicious and the staff were so nice and accomodating. It is a lovely jewel of a place to stay - simple and so delightful!!!

I didn't stay here overnight, but I did participate in a dive run out of Pirates Cove. The dive crew were unorganized and disrespected the time of their customers by forcing us to wait while they corralled their boats presumably in preparation for the next day. One of the crew (had dreads, but don't remember his name) was particular grumpy... More

We spent 4 days at Pirate Cove and couldn't have had a better welcome!

My Wife an I decided to stay a week in this resort for our honeymoon, and it was our quintessential vacation. We took advantage of many of the excursions: Night Tour of the jungle, horseback riding to a water fall, Hiking through the beautiful Corcovado National Park, Scuba diving off Isla de Caño, and a relaxing Message in our room....

My wife and I recently spent four nights at Pirate Cove Hotel in Drake Bay. We had looked at many of the other properties in the area and finally settled on Pirate Cove. Let's just say that it could not have been a better choice. This is one fine, well run, small lodge on the edge of the rain forest... More
