Lovely views of the ocean from rooms. Great but simple food...well cooked. We stayed 2 nights and loved watching Scarlet Macaws flying over in the mornings. Hummingbirds nesting outside our room was a real treat. Stay here if you love wildlife, but not if you want all mod cons.

Get prepared to get really wet while traveling to the hotel. Going out and in of the boat can be challenging. The food at lunch is a single dish with everything inside:rice, chicken ... and pineapple for example. As soon as we arrived they wanted to know which excursions we wanted to do and of course prepare your wallet for...

I dove Cano Island for 4 days with Cano Divers in early April. They picked me up at the beach near my hotel (Guaria De Osa) which was convenient. The crew on the boat (captain, deck hand, and divemasters) were all extremely helpful, friendly, and efficient. The rental dive gear was in decent shape, although it doesn't hurt to bring...

My family and I enjoyed the stay at Pirate Cove. Nothing fancy but a Great place to relax and have a good quality time. The food was very good, the place is clean and the cabins are very cute with a hammock at the balcony facing the ocean. I recommend this place.

My boyfriend and I chose to travel to the Drake Bay area in order to get some much deserved R&R (and to get away from Canada's harsh winter)... we were definitely not disappointed! We found the Pirate Cove Hotel on-line and the reviews were quite good, so we booked it. Our first contacts with the staff there were very positive...

We are a family of five with 3 teens. From the moment I first contacted Pirate Cove I felt cared for. They take immense pride in responding to any and all questions I had prior to coming. No question was too small and they often reponded within minutes of me asking- that is unbelievable Service. They made sure we knew...

We are a party of 7. We all enjoyed this little hotel with friendly service, delicious food (with seamless accommodation for those who are vegetarian and gluten free), and great tours with Gabriel ! The bungalows are rustic but very clean , situated on a hill overlooking the ocean and river. If you want a/c go for the rooms in...

We flew into the local airport and absolutely fell in love with Pirate's Cove. We stayed in Cabin number 9 with beautiful views over the ocean and the creek. Tanagers perched outside the trees on our terrace and I loved the thoughtfully provided hammock which you could relax in. The room was a good size with great air con and...

Having last visited Pirate Cove 5 years ago we were very pleasantly surprised by the changes made. Adding the swimming pool has made the end of the day very pleasant, especially with the kids being wet + happy, making the end of day beer + nuts even better! The rooms have been upgraded too but haven't lost the 'lodge' feel...
