From the time we made the reservations with Tara Harrell in Ca. til the time we unfortunately had to return home, our family of 11 were treated like part of there resort family.

Me and my family recently visited and stayed at Crocodile Bay for a week. My overall impression of the resort and area was positive. I do not enjoy large resorts or cruises because it is not as personal. The staff were great from the moment we stepped into the main office till moment we left it on our last day....

Some of you may have read my husbands review from our trip back in April 2015 that told of so many of the great attributes(including watching the world wake up sitting by the pool) of this location, so I'm going to keep this short and gracious! We arrived in Puerto Jimenez on December 28 and I have to say getting...

My son found out about Crocodile Bay on one of the fishing shows. He said to me "You wouldn't want to go there. It's all about fishing." Let me...

We have visited many many accommodations, resorts and hotels in high class, but the service, the quality, the crew and the professional way they organize all the trips (fishing and eco-tours) are the best we have ever experienced. Everybody does the best for all the guests, nothing is to much and everything is possible. The fishing boats are great, all...

We went to Crocodile Bay Lodge over the Thanksgiving holiday 2015. We had the most amazing time. The staff was the best. Everyone, not just a few, but everyone was amazing. We felt so at home from the moment we got there until we left, even being Thanksgiving. The fishing was spectacular, the grounds were wonderful and the spa, ohhhhh...

I cannot say enough about the service, hospitality and amenities that this resort has. The service we received from the moment we were met in San Jose at the airport by Crocodile Bay representatives and during our entire 2 week stay at the resort was outstanding. The hotel staff, tour guides and fishing crews were a delight as each person...

We had a fantastic time at the Crocodile Bay Resort. The weather was perfect, the drinks were cold and the fishing was even better.The staff were great and very helpful. Hopefully the next time I visit I'll land that marlin! Can't wait to visit again.
