Very well located, right on the beach. Rooms are spacious, very clean, offer air conditioning which could be useful in hot temperatures. Excursions can be organized on site and charged to your hotel bill. Food is ok; there is only one type of meal served for dinner, no choice. A few small restaurant are located nearby for different choices.

Rancho Corcovado is right on the beach. You arrive either by plane and a rough road or by boat with a water landing (walking through the water while your luggage gets carried in the air to keep it dry). The beach is pretty but it's not a spectacular white sand beach like you find elsewhere. Our Costa Rican travel agent...

The strongest recommendations for the resort are that it's on a beautiful beach and within walking distance to a couple of good restaurants. Emails sent to the website asking about arrangements for tours or activities went unanswered, and the manager was not overly friendly, though he was responsive when we asked to be moved from rooms 10 and 11 to...

We rented a lodge which was situated up on the hill. A great view at Drake Bay! A little cumbersome to climb up the stairs as it was hot (32 degrees C). The lodge was quiet, comfortably equipped. The breakfast was excellent.

We stayed 4 nights and loved this hotel. It's directly on the beach, fine sand, clean, warm water, beautiful just outside your window. I suggest the full board, breakfast lunch and dinner. The food was excellent and very artfully presented. The manager Roger speaks excellent English and makes every attempt to accommodate your schedule with meals and transportation. Our room...

Our 3 night stay exceeded our expectations for comfortable accommodations with A/C, availability of staff for needs, and good dining experience. The location right on the beach was appreciated as well. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The room was extremely spacious and comfortable with AC, modern shower, comfortable beds and balcony with a view right on to the seafront. Lorraine (hope this is correct) and her daughter are fantastic cooks and we enjoyed delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner daily - great quality and value. The staff at this...

The location was amazing as it is right on the beach. As soon as we arrived we ran to the water to cool down after a stressful drive around the Osa Peninsula. The hosts were great and we had a lovely time. The food was good and reasonable priced. Great stay

After travelling from the north of the Caribbean coast and all the way down the Pacific coast we finished here and spent our last 3 days trekking Corcovado NP and snorkelling around Cano Island. Our meals were included in our package and although there was no choice the food served was really good. We stayed in room 18 which had...

Rancho Corcovado, a family owned and run business, is located on the Pacific coast with comfortable seating and beautiful views of the Ocean. Many of the tours start at this hotel and the town of Drake Bay is only 300 yards up the hill so it is ideally located. The Manager, Roger Gonzalez, is friendly, welcoming and helpful to book...
