Finca Maresia
Ranked #1 of 22 Drake Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I don't post a lot, but this place deserves some comments...GO HERE! Relaxing. Clean and friendly, knowledgable staff. Drake Bay is out-of-the-way in Costa Rica, but this is worth it. Spent five nights enjoying the scenery and beaches. Bkfst is enough to get you going in the AM. Dinner is well prepared (if you want to go to town for a restaurant, you need to take a taxi - price is $8-10 each way). Plans for a POOL, so go before the rates increase. Thanks, Miguel for a splendid time.

Room Tip: Cabinas very cozy. #8

Even though the location is outside of town it is still a great stay. The area is beautiful , the rooms are spacious ( we had one with a private bath) and very clean. The breakfast was OK but the dinners were always wonderful( breakfast included with room and dinner for a reasonable charge). The staff was very helpful in making suggestions and arrangements for tours. If we go back we would certainly stay there again.

We stayed here with the wonderful host, Miguel, in late November. The setting is simply beautiful, the accommodation stylish, minimalist in a good way, and comfortable. You are right in the middle of nature surrounded by millions of sparkling spider's eyes at night (ask Miguel), the distant sound of Howler Monkeys is your dawn chorus and you could wile away hours hanging in your hammock, on your own private porch, taking in the beauty of it all, the bird life, the peace and quiet. I can heartily recommend this place, Miguel is a superb host, he manages to taxi his guests back and forth, run the ship and prepare a mean meal at night! He has great recommendations, I could go on, but my 200 words is soon out!

If you are looking for a place which is in the nature,very clean and has very friendly and helpfull owner and lovely staff,that is your accommodation. It is just beautiful. We enjoyed every single minute that we spent there. If I have chance to go to Costa Rica again,I will definitely visit that place again and stay longer.
Thanks a lot Miguel.

In a nutshell, the accommodation is great, very clean and well designed. The staff were amazing especially Miguel the owner who works constantly to make sure everyone is happy. The trips were amazing and the food was top drawer.
There are a few places that I would consider returning to (the world is a big place) but one day I'm sure ill go back here.

Finca Maresia is just beautiful. The rooms are spotless, beautifully designed, and really well equipped. The food was great (I am a vegetarian and sometimes that causes problems in Costa Rica) and Miguel creates a very friendly environment to meet with other guests at dinner. Miguel himself could not have been more obliging or helpful with information, advice and transportation.
Excellent value for what is provided too.
