We stayed here for a week during a family vacation to Drake Bay and the OSA Peninsula and were quite happy. The current managers are a great bunch, originally from Barcelona, who go way above and beyond.
The place is a very good value compared to similar places in town and the restaurant has a reasonable and changing selection considering the remoteness of the location. They were more than accommodating of the needs of our picky 6 year old!
Obviously the main draw in Drake bay is the National Park and surrounding natural areas, and the staff at Cabinas Manolo do a great job of organizing tours. They have arrangements with particular tour guides and naturalists and we were impressed with the operators that they put us in touch with. They also can provide great local information and advice on everything from where to find a pharmacy to the best local beaches.
The rooms were quite comfortable, with good fans and bed nets provided. Rustic yet relaxing.
