  • We had a very pleasant stay at Vista Drake. A woodsy little lodge, it was our favorite…Jul 30, 2015
  • Rustic, close to the road. Ok for the price. Probably would choose a different place next…Jan 29, 2015

spring break
The hotel owner is extremely nice and very helpful. I highly recommend arriving by boat. We took a car, it's about a 2 hour drive on a rough dirt road with several river crossings. Drake is a beautiful place, such a small town. If you are looking for some where to go that isn't extremely touristy I highly recommend it staying here!!

Very friendly management
Emilio is the best hotel manager we had in Costa Rica. Very friendly and helpful. Vista Drake lodge has a good location in Drake bay. We stayed on top of the breakfast room and it was a bit noisy, but the room was big and clean. As a budget alternative we give Vista Drake lodge the best recommendation.

Do not stay here, better values around town
The property is misrepresented, way too much money, it should be worth a third of the money they are asking. Paper thin walls (we could hear the guests next door coughing, talking, snoring), no view, cocroaches and ants in the room, water ran out while my husband was showering. Owner is pushy about tours. We had a reservation for two days but since the place was so awful found a place with exellent accomodations and views right next door, for a lot less money!!! We wanted our money back for the second night but owner refused and after arguing for a while gave us back only a partial refund. The next day, he made us sign an invoice stating that we had stayed 2 nights for the cost of the first night, plus what he withheld of the second night. He said it was necessary to sign it so he could get his payment from, but we think he only wanted to save his rump in case we complained.

Out in the Boondocks
If you ever want to go to the end Costa Rica, like the end of the world, then go here. One hour and half over a dirt road crossing streams and almost rivers. You must have a 4 wheel drive. The one restruant we ate at was horrible. We left a day early there was nothing there unless you wanted to hike. We could not reach our room because of stairs up a mountain. We ended up in a carport room with no windows.The only good thing is we have a story to tell.
