Splendidly isolated in the tiny community of Drake Bay, Costa Rica, Jinetes De Osa Hotel is a friendly beachside retreat one hours boat ride down the jungle lined banks of the Sierpe River.

Most rooms are well up hillside with good views over bay but lots of steps up, and down! Our rooms were spacious and had air conditioning, decent showers and balconies to read and watch the wildlife. Breakfast was OK with delicious warm cinnamon rolls, and supper was fine but relatively pricey. It does get hot though....

We stayed at the lodge 5 nights and took advantage of the many day trips offered by the friendly staff. The room was simple but comfortable. The restaurant, Kalaluna Bistro was top notch! They have an extensive menu and all of the dishes were excellent!

We had a room with A/C which meant climbing 160 stairs to get to the room, the view was spectacular from our porch . We found the room to be clean and it cooled down with the A/c after a bit.. the restaurant was very good , everything we ate was delicious, I especially loved the ceviche. We loved this place and the lovely people that run it . We can’t wait to return

About a 15-minute walk from town, my husband and I liked the fairly secluded feeling of Jinetes de Osa. We spent four nights there. As we couldn't book the same room for all four nights, we spent the first three nights in room 13, a garden view standard room, and the last night in room 12, which was a more expensive jungle view superior with a partial ocean view. Both had air conditioning. Be forewarned, the rooms air-conditioned rooms are up 184 stone steps, but that makes them farther away from the restaurant and the path that goes by Jinetes to another hotel farther on, so they're more peaceful. Also, the rooms at the top of the stairs aren't just rooms; each one is a little casita, or small house (minus a kitchen). Pros for standard room 13: 1) separate rooms for the toilet/sink and the shower, 2) a second sink in the main room, 3) plenty of toiletry storage space below both sinks, and 4) two air conditioners, one in the bedroom and one in the main room. Cons: the view from the small porch was of other casitas, but you'll know that when you book if you look at their website. For the superior room 12, the pros are: 1) nice partial view of ocean from the porch. Cons: the toilet, sink and shower are in one long bathroom with one sink and a lack of toiletry storage, and 2) the lights from the gazebo located behind the casita came through the windows into the bedroom, as there were no blinds on the windows. If you're going to spend a lot of time sitting on the porch, go with the more expensive superior room, but if you're not, we found the standard room to be more comfortable.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in Drake Bay. It was handy that the ferry from Sierpe drops you right in front of the hotel (be warned it is a wet landing) and staff were there to help us bring our bags up the beach. We had a room up the hillside with the most fantastic view which we enjoyed from our balcony. The room was very big, clean and comfortable. A little old-fashioned but it did have air conditioning and a safe. Only negative was that there were no toiletries in the bathroom which was surprising consider the cost of the room. Breakfast was great with a good choice of options. Location of the hotel is really good. Not far to walk into town (about 20 minutes) and in the other direction there is a well marked trail to a couple of gorgeous beaches (30 minutes). There are a few nice places to eat in town and the restaurant in the hotel is also very good. We booked and paid for 3 excursions in advance and they were all brilliant!! Rolando was our guide for the Corcovado hike and also for the night tour and he was amazing! We learned so much and had so much fun. We also went snorkelling off Cano Island which we really enjoyed.
