My husband and I stayed at Finca Maresia for three nights on our trip to Drake Bay. I'd say it was a pretty mixed bag. On the one hand, I liked the relative seclusion of the property and the bungalows were interesting. The open shower in the bathroom was quite unique and fun. We took the critter night tour and a horseback riding tour, both were great. The food was very good. On the other hand, I don't think I have ever been so HOT in my life. No air conditioning in the bungalow, no breeze, no pool, and no ocean access made it impossible to cool down. I know Costa Rica is hot, but it was so stifling I couldn't sleep. I don't care for communal dining, but that's my own problem. Lastly, I was reprimanded pretty harshly in front of the entire dinner table and all its guests for feeding my left over chicken to the dog on the deck. (I stood up and walked the chicken over to the dog, I didn't feed it from my chair.) Apparently you are "never, ever EVER" supposed to feed the animals. That's fine, but someone could have told me in advance, or, kindly informed me of the policy. It was humiliating and brought me to tears. An apology was made to me the next day, which was appreciated.
