You know your in a good spot when you hear your teenager mumble to himself “this is a cool spot”. After arriving during a long day of travel, we were greeted by the delightful hotel manager Maria. She could not of been more accommodating by keeping the kitchen open after getting lost from the airport (that is another story). If you want to stay away from the tourists and have a more authentic experience, this is the spot for you. The villas are equipped with everything you need. Victoria was very sweet by catering to all of our gastrointestinal needs and Mauritizo went out of his way to make my daughter’s birthday a special event by decorating and ordering a cake. Don’t miss out on Lola’s for lunch and hit up playa Negra for beautiful beaches and restaurants. The only thing that I wish they had was a gym. We will definitely come back!…
We had the whole resort to ourselves for a family wedding, and we had the BEST time!! The staff bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. The name has been changed to Blue Zone Resort, but Blue Zone’s staff was in place when we came. The food was truly delicious — SO fresh, all organic and locally sourced. I wish I could get such good food in New York City, where I live!! The ocean is a 5-minute walk down the (not at all steep) path. The resort is remote — like being in paradise, but there are some restaurants a drive away, with inexpensive local taxis available. The rooms are simple but very clean and nice. The pool and fountains were perfect, and we spent as much time there as we did on the beach — with drinks delivered to us poolside. It was sheer heaven. Shout out especially to the phenomenal staff!!!…
We were there with some other friends for two nights. The location is great with an incredible beach 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel is good, nice rooms, clean, good pool. The personnel very friendly. The only point is that the restaurant is close with no Lunch or dinner and that from 6 pm there is nobody in case you need or want anything..not even a drink. Just a couple of restaurants nearby offer delivery.
A friend of ours stayed and Driftaway February 2021. He raved about the property. We booked a week stay in June 2021 with a meetup with our friend at the resort. Very, Very nice. People are so friendly. We needed peace and relaxation and that's what we received! Nice pool and away from the busyness! We would highly recommend this resort!
Nestled in quiet and quaint Playa Avellanas, Drift Away Eco Lodge is a wonderful place just minutes from several great beaches. My wife and I stayed for a total of 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our entire stay. The staff was extremely friendly and thoughtful. They helped us arrange a dive trip to the Catalina Islands, gave us great restaurant recommendations, and made sure we were taken care of during our stay. The complimentary breakfast was great, as was the free rentals of surfboards, bikes, etc. Highly recommend Drift Away for your next trip to Playa Avellanas!!
My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, had a very nice time. We were met by the manager/host, Lisa, who explained all of the nuances. Great staff who were all very friendly. The Lodge had Covid protocals in place, the rooms are spacious, super clean and quite comfortable. Breakfast was included with the stay and delicious. Drift Away is a minute to Playa Avellanas/Lola's, less than an hour to get to Playa Conchal and a quick stroll to Playa Lagartillo for the sunsets. We would definitely go back with friends!
This hotel is designed for travelers by travelers. It is comfortable, clean and comes with all of the amenities one needs. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms have a clean aesthetic with natural elements. The rooms also have keyless entry. Water bottles are provided for each room and there are water filling stations. The pool cleaning is done without harsh chemicals. There is no single use plastics throughout the property. The staff is kind, courteous and willing to help you. I loved engaging with them. The beach is literally across the street and I could hear the ocean from my room. I loved my stay and can't wait to go back!
Today Google sent me my photos and notification that It’s been one year since we stayed at Drift Away Eco Loudge (February, 2020). What a restful time we had there. Thank god we had no idea about the madness of our nearest future. Quiet and peaceful place with modern clean facilities. Nice, open and very helpful Canadian managers. Beautiful Canadian couple - surprisingly creative young owners- Oksana and Max. They always work on one of their ideas. I admire people with new ideas willing to bring them to life. Gorgeous and always clean a swimming pool. Secluded beach which is just 3 minutes walking distance from the resort. No more than 10 minutes driving to a crowded surfing beach with a very good restaurant and bar. Famous French restaurant, who’s chef is former chef of Michelin restaurant in Paris., pizzeria where you can taste crunchy pizzas made from corn dough. Delicious. Try it. I sincerely hope that next year at this time I will be again at this lovely fairy place.…
We had a great time here, even in the middle of a pandemic! Great rooms, nice pool, excelent breakfast and fantastic service. Really close to the beach and to nice restaurants. They take all the correct measures recomended for COVID prevention.
This is a tropical paradise! There is everything you need and more. Lisa and Paul are very helpful and accommodating, great hosts! The rooms are great and the beds are super comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and a good start to the day. They let the guests use the surf boards, boogie boards, and bikes which is a huge plus! We have stayed here twice now and plan on going back! The beach is a 5 minute walk and there are great restaurants close as well. Loved staying here and we’ll definitely be back!
