Loved our 3 nights at the Finca. We stayed in one of the bungalows with an open view of the jungle right from our shower. Barbara was running it and was helpful and super easy to deal with. They arranged all of our tours for us with top notch guides. We ate dinner there twice and it was a 4...

but the hospitality, food, and accommodations were so wonderful that I'm taking the time now to write a review. While we visited, Juan was in charge and did a great job of making us welcome. He helped arrange our excursions and always pointed us in the right direction. A couple of things that might not be obvious from the web,...

After traveling around in Costa Rica for 3 weeks, I can honestly say this is the nicest place and hostel we've visited. Both superior and basic rooms are real value for money. The location is terrific, the rooms perfect, the breakfast excellent and the communal balcony where both breakfast and dinner are served, are a good place to spot birds...

Had a great 6 night stay here. As soon as you arrive you know this is going to be a special and unique experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and the owner Miguel certainly knows what travelers want. His approach to this hotel makes the difference to any I have been to. He makes sure that you are informed...

The owner, Juan, and his staff could not be more accomodating! The accomodations overlook the jungle and you are treated to the night sounds and excellent meals every day. Juan knows the good tour operators and spends the time with you, understanding your timeline and needs to make your visit the best it can be, BRAVO! We will be back...

Finca Maresia is located a bit uphill from Drake Bay but Miguel one of the owner met us when we arrived by boat. We stayed both in the superior room and in the basic room. Of course the superior rooms are awesome, with private jungle view shower and terrace but also the basic room is comfortable for budhget travellers. Very...

You can really tell that Miguel knows what travellers want and that he loves his place. The location is beautiful, in the jungle, surrounded by nature and wildlife but still open for good views. The property is spacious and the cabins with the rooms are amazing! Hotel quality for a hostel price. Very clean, very good showers, comfortable beds and...

We travelled to CR in May / June 2012, and stayed in Finca Maresia for 3 nights as we travelled around the entire country. Our stay in Finca Maresia was very relaxing. This is a beautiful part of CR, and although it's a bit of a trek to get to (we drove as far as Sierpe, left our 4x4 in...

Finca Maresia is a very nice, comfortable place to stay. The rooms are beautiful, very clean, they have enough privacy and the bathroom is half-open so you get the feeling you are showering in the middle of nature. We were welcomed by one of the owners, Juan, whom I had nice contact with before, by email. Now he is one...

240 excellent reviews out of a total of 260 (at this time). I guess, I can just confirm all the good things that have been said. Brilliant place which absolutely deserves these 5 stars (including Juan, one of the owners). Was definitely the best experience in 5 months travelling in Central America. Just check it out yourself! ;)
