This is a perfect spot to stay in Drake Bay, we stayed in a bungalow with sea views and had a porch. The room is very big, nice bathroom. Sitting outside in the porch and looking out to ocean was just perfect. Emilio the host is great. I would definitely recommend.

We stayed in one of the new lovely bungalows up on a hill with the most beautiful view just before New Years (See our picture). Parrots, hummingbirds, Toucans and monkeys were all around our bungalow. We loved our stay at this place and Emilio and his staff were so nice and welcoming! During our 1 month long stay in Costa...

Good place to stay. Good price. Choose the bungalow where in your private hammock and on your private terrace you can admire nature, ocean and if you are lucky arrow flights. Breakfast is correct with eggs, fruits, toasts and sometimes pancakes. The sympathic owner welcomes you at the pier, explains you a lot of things and organize tours to Corcovado...

Emilio was an amazing host along with his mother who was a great breakfast chef! We stayed here the first 3 nights on Oso Penninsula. Emilio put us up in much nicer accomodations than we originally booked due to our party growing in size by one, but at no additional cost! Really a treat! Emilio also arranged for a great...

We visited Vista Drake lodge in December 2014. The location is very convenient. It is close to the village restaurants and stores. It is not in the middle of wilderness like some all the lodges. Maybe location in the jungle is more romantic and more close to nature. But this one was very convenient. Our Bungalow had a great view....

We stayed here for 4 nights in March and wished we had booked for longer. We arrived during a storm on the boat from Sierpe and got soaked but it didn't matter as Emilio and his family were there with towels to dry us and drinks to refresh us before we had even checked in. We stayed in 'Grandma's Bungalow',...

“Two bungalows have the best views and are up on the hill reached via steps. Rooms are street level near kitchen and could be noisier. Tours start early so that does not really matter.”
