Everything from the hotel, location, staff, and food was incredible. The hotel was exactly what we were looking for- we stayed 3 nights. The location is great- walking distance to everything that we needed. The staff was great and made everything seamless. They were able to book all of our excursions and took the time to talk to us. We... More

From the time I started planning to the last day at Jinetes de Osa Hotel, the staff made all things seamless. They made all arrangements for excursions and travel from and to San Jose. Carlos, Rolando and Michael were very helpful. Giovanni and Erick made the snorkeling and dive excursion exciting and safe. Roy was an excellent guide to Corcovado.... More

We were there in March 2016, during what many people said was a period of extreme heat and humidity. The location is lovely, at the start of the trail system that winds around the coastline passing numerous beaches. The breakfast was quite good. Meals in general were very good, but pricy, keep that in mind. Originally we were to have... More

We stayed here for three nights, and the service the whole time was great. The location is a little further "out of town" but walking to the main road entering Drake (where the main supermarkets/restaurants are) only takes about 15 minutes. I think there is a back road that connects if you were to drive. Making the booking was easy,... More

We have just spent 3 nights at this hotel. Food was exceptionally good, location perfect and staff super friendly and helpful. Room basic but had rustic charm, fans, no air conditioning but clean and well kept. Only criticism is the fans weren't that effective during hot nights, but we still managed to sleep well. Could do with much thicker curtains... More

My friend and I had been coming to CR for many years but my wife had waited until she retired, so we planned to spend three weeks and hit all the high spots. We flew in from Liberia, the second week of January 2015. Take the early morning flight; the wind picks up late morning in Nicoya and makes a... More

My husband and I traveled to Drake Bay very recently, and were so impressed with the entire experience at Jinetes. Our flight into San Jose' was delayed, and we were going to miss our connection to Drake Bay (the last of the day). Brian got right on it, and had us booked on a flight to Puerto Jimenez within minutes.... More

We really appreciated the friendly personal attention that the staff gave us. This was especially true about Giovani, Ivan, Carlos and Sarah. The dive operation with dive master Ivan was very professional and the diving on Cano Island was great. This was our second stay at Jinetes de Osa and we will definitely go back!
