I traveled there with my wife and son. Drake Bay is a great place to get away from it all. Nestled in the trees and still overlooking the ocean. What more could you ask for. Mary and her staff took great care of us. The meals and the afternoon snack by the pool were all amazing. Mary booked our excursions... More

A super-relaxed, eco-friendly & charming place to spend 5 days with the family (kids aged 12 & 13). The manager Mary (hi Mary!) booked several excellent tours, and she has top knowledge for getting the best local guides to give a true Costa Rican experience - can't decide the highlight, but split between Rio Claro jungle river adventure (good enough...

We stayed at the lodge for 5 nights and had fabulous adventure after adventure! The best fishing I've experienced in Costa Rica. Massive tuna was launching out of the water all around us for close to two hours. The kids had an unforgettable experience. The accommodations and dining experience was amazing with fresh foods prepared and presented to perfection. Thanks... More

We have a little getaway with my husband and 2 littles girl ( 2 & 4 yrs old). We have a fantastic time... Drake bay is a secluded beach and the most beautiful place in Costa Rica. The hotel has a perfect location. You walk 50 meter and you are at the beach with fantastic views all the time. We... More

When we arrived at the small airport the owner himself was there waiting for us. When we were shown to our room I thought I died and went to Heaven. It was gorgeous overlooked Drake Bay. The outside shower was a special treat. Not to mention the Hammock out front. Immaculate. When we went downstairs to the pool area we... More

My husband and I spent 3-nights at Tranquilo Lodge in Drake Bay. Our experience left us believing that Tranquilo Lodge is a destination unmatched in the Osa Peninsula. We opted to fly to Drake Bay airport with Sansa Airlines; upon landing we were greeted by lodge staff who drove us to the lodge. The drive itself was short, maybe 15... More

Tranquilo Lodge is by far the best vacation destination I have ever visited! The location is not only amazing, but the view is beautiful, the accomodations are fantastic, and the staff is more than amazing. I have never had such a peaceful and mind-clearing vacation in all of my life. I recommend staying in the upper-level casitas as they have... More

The view from the upper level cabinas is amazing. Sit on your porch and watch macaws and pelicans. The sun set us stunning. Outdoor showers with a view of the ocean. Staff is always available to facilitate, but not hovering. The food is wonderful, and they accommodated our vegetarian daughter and pescatarian son with one day's notice. Desserts were scrumptious,... More

Room was excellent, view on hilltop was phenomenal. Laid-back atmosphere with attentive staff. Tours easy to set-up with staff. Food was excellent. Need to bring own ETOH, but staff will gladly get for you in town. Pool is small but very nice (see photo) with beautiful sunset in evening. Would recommend highly overall.
