Pirates cove is a beautiful property, we had a room with 5 beds, rooms are basic but the property is great, food is just fantastic, they cater to all kinds of food requests. Lots of activities to do and they organise everything. The rainforest night walk was amazing, the children loved it

We just returned from a lovely 4 days at Pirate Cove. The place is gorgeous! The sound of the waves right outside our room was so relaxing. The food was delicious and the staff were so nice and accomodating. It is a lovely jewel of a place to stay - simple and so delightful!!!

I didn't stay here overnight, but I did participate in a dive run out of Pirates Cove. The dive crew were unorganized and disrespected the time of their customers by forcing us to wait while they corralled their boats presumably in preparation for the next day. One of the crew (had dreads, but don't remember his name) was particular grumpy...

We spent 4 days at Pirate Cove and couldn't have had a better welcome! Susana and Nelson were very nice, everything was arranged from our transport to tours, food was delicious and the room big and clean with AC. Lilian was very helpful in finding my boyfriend's wallet which had fallen under the bed and he forgot to pack and...

My wife and I recently spent four nights at Pirate Cove Hotel in Drake Bay. We had looked at many of the other properties in the area and finally settled on Pirate Cove. Let's just say that it could not have been a better choice. This is one fine, well run, small lodge on the edge of the rain forest...

We had the bungalow directly in front of the beach. a little bit noisy in the night, because of the waves, but really romantic. what a nice moment to get up in the morning and be the first to see the ocean.

We stayed here for a blissful week March 25-April 2. We came to dive, and the dive staff was fantastic. The diving at Cano island was phenomenal. Highlights were huge schools of fish, sharks, turtles and a dive where we were surrounded by manta rays swimming around and around us, like a ballet. Office staff also gave us everything we...

I would like to thank all the staff at Pirate Cove - you have a lovely hotel in a beautiful place and it was so nice to be able to spend a few nights there. The food was good - and nice not to have to chose food but to just relax. The tours were well run and the guides...

Although we did not stay at the hotel, my son got certified at the hotel. Wilson, the dive master par excellance made it looks so easy, and to top it all off, we saw a manta ray on our fourth dive.
