Nestled away above Drake Bay with amazing views. Accommodations were very comfortable, menus were fresh made with local produce, staff met every need and then some. Fishing, snorkeling, zip lining and sight seeing were all arranged seamlessly by staff. Attentive management that made sure you are well taken care of. Flights easily arranged from San Jose, and hotel staff meets... More

We just returned from a two night stay. We are a family of four, mom and dad and two kids - 10 and 14. The entire place was very well maintained and clean. I am not sure how old it is, but it looks new. The food was very good - exceeded expectations. The staff was even better, particularly Mary.... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Tranquilo Lodge in early January. From the moment we were picked up at the airport, the experience was more than I could've imagined. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. I had an issue with my water heater late at night and they were so quick to help, even in the wee hours... More

Mary was quite responsive by email before my trip, helping to book tours (including being sensitive to by dietary restrictions!). When travel plans changed, she was very flexible and patient and helped me work things out! Thanks Mary!

Truly one of the most beautiful lodges I have ever visited. The staff goes out of their way to make sure every need was taken care of. The food was amazing, fresh fish, local specialties (they even brought in a lady to cook homemade tamales). They coordinated adventures for our whole family (from 5 years old to 84) and took...

Tranquilo Lodge is spectacular. First trip to Costa Rica and Tranquilo Lodge was the best choice ever. We were welcomed at the airport by friendly staff and felt right at home as soon as we arrived. Herb and his staff were wonderful! We stayed in the top cabanas and the view of the water was breath taking. Waking up to... More

Stayed here just after new year with my fiancé. Lovely accommodation with exceptional staff who are always happy to cater to any request. There are also some great tours on offer including diving, night tour, ATV hire and stand up paddle. The pool area is lovely and the sunsets are gorgeous. Highly recommended whilst in Drake Bay.

Our family of four spent 4 nights at the Tranquilo Lodge over Christmas. It was a beautiful place to experience the Osa peninsula. We stayed in the "honeymoon suite". It was perfect for our family. It had a king size bed and bunk beds. It was really quiet and we never heard any road noise. The air conditioning at bedtime... More

I recently stayed at Tranquilo Lodge, celebrating a cousin's 50th birthday. Many family members and friends were there. In fact, we booked the entire lodge, so there were over 25 people there. We had the time of our lives during our stay here. The pool area is spectacular, with a view of the entire bay. There is a beautiful bar... More
