My visit was primarily to fish. The fishing was not as good as expected (caught two sailfish), but everything else was great. There are many tours and activities if someone in your party does not want to fish. The rooms and grounds are excellent and the food is superb. The staff are so friendly you feel like yo have known...

We stayed at Crocodile Bay Resort in January of 2017. The people were wonderful, loved the rooms and food and so many things to see and do on the resort and close by. And excellent fishing. We hope to visit again soon! Be sure to sign up for the snorkeling, monkey tour and chocolate farm tour...they were all amazing!

My husband and I were fortunate enough to return to Crocodile Bay for our second time in February. Weather wise, this trip was the total opposite of our last trip in November 2016. (We were evacuated due to the CRAZY weather from Hurricane Otto and there was no fishing!). This time around we were able to spend 9 days and...

My husband and I visited Crocodile Bay for the first time during the Christmas holiday. I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had. The whole staff was so friendly; they made us feel like family from day one. The fishing was everything we expected. We caught tuna, grouper, snapper, rooster fish...and our last day of fishing, my husband...

My wife and my sister in law joined me on our first trip to Costa Rica and Crocodile Bay. The welcoming from Ms. Olympia, was very refreshing. Todd the fishing/boat director and his staff provided us with every opportunity to catch fish. The hotel staff were the greatest providing excellent service and paying attention to you needs. The food was...

The fishing was a bit slow, but that is the very nature of fishing. We were on a couples vacation and it was perfect. My wife and her friend enjoyed the spa (chocolate facial, massage, facial etc) as well as ocean kayaking and stand up paddle boarding in the mangrove forest while my friend and I fished. We caught sailfish,...

My husband and I visited Crocodile Bay Resort with our 13- and 11-yr old children in January and truly had the best vacation ever. With the fishing (roosterfish are our new favorite) and all of the fabulous eco tours, everyday was amazing. Ziplining, snorkeling, primate tour, wildlife sanctuary, and chocolate farm; we did them all. One particularly favorite eco tour...

I'm a fishing nut, but mostly staying near home, and I'm not well-traveled. Having just turned 50, I treated my self to a "bucket list" type trip, and headed down to Crocodile Bay with four friends. It was a fantastic experience. I think the best thing about the Resort is it's size. I would guess there are only about 20-30...
