Jorge and Alex made fishing extra fun. Food was the best! Beautiful views from our bungalow, georgous jungle animals and beautiful birds. Put this on your...

We have been there for 3 nights. There is a magnificent pool on top of a hill with breath taking view of the bay, wonderful sunsets. The manager takes care of all the activities. There are no choices for the food, but breakfast, lunch and dinner are tasty and served very decorated.real pleasure !

The best vacation ever!! There was a special aura and surprise at every turn, every day. The beauty of the property and the ocean was magnificent. The sounds and sights were a sensory overload. It was a trip of a lifetime awakening forgotten emotions and the beauty of life, love and nature. There were so many things worth mentioning we...

We stayed here on our final night in Costa Rica. Everything about this was above expectations. Our room was spacious (3 beds - 2 singles, 1 double), the bathroom was huge - the shower head alone was humongous. Plenty of towels. Meals were provided - lunch, snacks, dinner, and breakfast. All of it was delicious and well made. The snacks...

We had a wonderful stay at Tranquilo Lodge. It truly felt like paradise; with glorious views and surrounded by beautiful flowers, trees and scarlet macaws flying overhead. The swimming pool and bar area is very relaxing, and the eco lodge had everything we needed. The balcony and hammocks were great! The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made the holiday...

I stayed at Tranquilo Lodge with my husband and 2 kids aged 9 and 11 in early December 2016. We stayed at Tranquilo Lodge for 5 nights. We flew from San Jose to Drake Bay in a small 21 seater plane - this was an adventure in itself. Small planes fly close to the ground so the views were fantastic...

This was the perfect place to stay in Drake Bay. The hotel is just off the road, across which is a little road leading to a beautiful and almost private beach we swam at every day (there is one hotel and a very few houses). We were a group of 4 celebrating, belatedly, our father/father-in-law's 80th birthday (just before his...

Absolutely loved our stay at Tranquilo Lodge. We came as a family to celebrate my father's 81st birthday, and found ourselves on the trip of a lifetime. Tranquilo staff hosted us with such care and love, and with great attention to details. The food was superb, the view from the Infinity pool was sublime (especially at sunset), the accessibility of...
