We had a wonderful stay at Tranquillo Lodge. Very attractive, comfortable inn with a lovely, extremely accommodating staff. There are just a few bungalows with beautiful views. There are air conditioners but we did not need them at all; a nice breeze from the ocean came in at night. The food was wonderful; every meal was abundant and delicious. Mary,...

We stayed in four different hotels/areas during our 10 days and Tranquilo was by far the best! Get a room at the top! The sunset/sunrise is well worth it. Mary is wonderful and the entire staff was extremely accommodating. Eric rocks as a tour guide!

We had a fantastic stay at Tranquilo lodge - it started with Hurricane Otto and a delay of 2 days, and as a consequence also a lot of rain during our stay but even with these drawbacks, we loved Drake Bay and Tranquilo lodge very much. The grounds are really very beautiful as is the view from the swimming pool....
