When we arrived at the small airport the owner himself was there waiting for us. When we were shown to our room I thought I died and went to Heaven. It was gorgeous overlooked Drake Bay. The outside shower was a special treat. Not to mention the Hammock out front. Immaculate. When we went downstairs to the pool area we...

My husband and I spent 3-nights at Tranquilo Lodge in Drake Bay. Our experience left us believing that Tranquilo Lodge is a destination unmatched in the Osa Peninsula. We opted to fly to Drake Bay airport with Sansa Airlines; upon landing we were greeted by lodge staff who drove us to the lodge. The drive itself was short, maybe 15...

Tranquilo Lodge is by far the best vacation destination I have ever visited! The location is not only amazing, but the view is beautiful, the accomodations are fantastic, and the staff is more than amazing. I have never had such a peaceful and mind-clearing vacation in all of my life. I recommend staying in the upper-level casitas as they have...

The view from the upper level cabinas is amazing. Sit on your porch and watch macaws and pelicans. The sun set us stunning. Outdoor showers with a view of the ocean. Staff is always available to facilitate, but not hovering. The food is wonderful, and they accommodated our vegetarian daughter and pescatarian son with one day's notice. Desserts were scrumptious,...

Room was excellent, view on hilltop was phenomenal. Laid-back atmosphere with attentive staff. Tours easy to set-up with staff. Food was excellent. Need to bring own ETOH, but staff will gladly get for you in town. Pool is small but very nice (see photo) with beautiful sunset in evening. Would recommend highly overall.

We just returned from staying more than a week at Tranquilo Lodge where we fell in love with the location and staff. This hotel is just a short walk to a gorgeous and scarcely visited beach, and is just outside of the small town of Drake Bay on the Osa Peninsula. The staff is dedicated to ensuring visitors have a...

This is an excellent luxury lodge in Drake Bay and a wonderful home base for your adventures in the Osa. The view from the cabinas, upper rancho and pool is simply stunning, looking out over undeveloped jungle and breaking waves as far as the eye can see. It's fun to meet other guests and chat about your daily adventures while...

Mary and her staff made us feel like family They helped us with every tour and other needs that arose. Alex and Monita (sp?) were excellent hosts throughout our visit. Our La Sirena tour with Roy was memorable and our mangrove tour with Erique and Jorge was filled with birds and mammals. We highly recommend Tranquilo Lodge!

WOW, if you are interested in a spectacular place to stay in Drake Bay, I can Highly recommend Tranquillo Lodge. The view from the infinity pool/open air bar area is spectacular, and the meals at this small all inclusive resort are superb. They make every guest there feel special. We will stay here again during our next trip.
