Thank you Robert for your post and your kind words about our fishing fleet and crew. When we had to refuse you and your roommate service so soon after you arrived and remove you from the property due to your poor behavior, it was a nice surprise to see that positive comment about the fishing staff.

There are few places in the world that match the charm, character, tropical beauty & adventure of Crocodile Bay & Osa Peninsula. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Everything marvels beyond expectations - staff, fishing, tours, wildlife, hotel spa, Puerto Jimenez culture, locals, and small town nightlife. Your catch of the day, and others, are prepared as you like and better than ever....

From first moment we arrived to the last of our stay, I saw my father get stronger, more alert and happier. It was not just the entire staff's willingness to help, it was their follow-through on...

Was a great trip, we had a group of 30 and everyone raved about the accommodations, food, fishing and most of all the staff. The Spa experience was terrific. When we got home we booked our trip for next year.
