After checking out all the locations in Drake's bay we decided to stay here. What beautiful grounds with great views and plenty of birds to see. The rooms were cozy and very clean. In fact our cabin had an awesome balcony including a set of nesting Passerine tanagers in the ginger tree. The dinner was served family style which is nice since it brings everyone together in the evening to chat over what adventures they had experienced that day. They even provided us with laundry service at a great price which was delivered to our room the next day.
There is plenty of positives staying here, but the one major draw back we felt was that there was something missing. After traveling several times to Costa Rica this being our third we found that this place was owned by a Non Costa Rican not that this is a bad thing. It's just that all the other places we have stayed at the owners always treated you in a warm and friendly fashion. Now I am not saying that we were treaded badly... Not at all.
Lets just say that there are two owners who split their time running the hotel. Each one stays for several weeks at a time, and you could tell that the one who was their while we were was at the end of his rotation and was pretty burt out. Like I said before we were not treated badly, it just would have made everything that much better if he would have not been so ruff around the edges during our interactions. Now I say this because I have stayed at many places in Costa Rican and I have never once experianced this before.... Ticos always tend to take their time and go out of there way to be warm and friendly and make sure you are enjoying your stay.... that was not the case here.....
