A great Family stay in OSA
If you are looking for a regular hotel experience then this is not for you, however if you want a true home away from home experience with the local Tico family then you cannot go wrong with this option. Edward the reservations lead is always present and the kitchen is run by his mom and sister. The dad is the wealth of knowledge about local area and the uncle is the gardener. The abundant fruit trees was a pleasant surprise and so was the close proximity of the Macaws.

Great service, wonderful staff. Eduardo and his family will bend over backwards to please guests. I can't imagine coming to Drake Bay and staying anywhere else.

Worth the detour
Wonderful, little family run inn in the middle of nowhere. Very friendly family who will spend time with you if you are so inclined. It's far from Drake Bay, 5.5 km and 20+ minutes from the main beach by taxi. They will go out of their way to make sure you have a memorable experience on the Osa peninsula. If you are on foot, be prepared for long, rewarding walks. Try the horseback riding which is a bargain at US$25 p/p for a half day. Stayed in March, 2015.

2/10 Poor

I was not satisfied with the value/price
Not what I expected for the price of the room. There are bugs in the room and on the bed. The breakfast is included, but it's not good. The hotel is away from the center of the village. There is no privacy, you can hear your neighbors whispering. The service provided by the employees is good though, they really try. There is no information about the shared bathroom.

6/10 Good

It's 1:30 hours from the beach, NOT in Drake Bay
Great place but extremely far from anything else and more expensive than places closer to the beach and the Drake town. Good beds and nice food, hot showers :)

6/10 Good

Nice but VERY remote!
If Drake Bay is in the "middle of nowhere" then Casa Drake is at th "edge of nowhere". Casa Drake is a beautiful family owned and managed guest house. The family that runs it is very friendly, but doesn't speak a word of English, so you'll need someone in your group who can converse at least a little in Spanish. The house itself is very pretty, with simple dark wood decor. The big problem is its remote location - a 25 minute taxi ride from the town of Drake Bay on a very bumpy dirt road and across a thigh deep river that requires a 4x4 SUV or Pickup to ford. Cost each way into town is about $8 US. Also Drake Bay itself is not accessible by car unless you are driving a 4x4 as you will have to ford 5 rivers. We only made it past 4 in our sedan.
