First of all we have to say that this a very well located Lodge. We stayed at a very simple but confortable room with a great view. It had a large balcony and hamocks where you can relax and get a full view of the Bay. The room has no A/C but, at least in November, we didn't need it.... More

If you looking for a more laid back hotel with a great view this is it. Breakfast was included and customer service is great. Hotel offers pick up from/to the airport. Our room had fridge which was great for drinks while enjoying the view from the room.

We stayed in one of those stunning bungalows that Emilio has. Well, we could not think of a better place: the views are simply breath-taking! We had various birds and monkeys passing by literally our windows. Situated within few minutes to the town centre but at the same time peaceful and quite. Emilio offered us very useful informations about how... More

We were met on the beach by very helpful locals who directed us to Emilio who was waiting to take us to his lodge. The location was perfect- a very short walk to the beach and the restaurants in town. Emilio was incredibly helpful and made our stay in drake bay stress free- he even helped us to organise a...

My husband and I (seniors) stayed at Vista Drake Lodge in a very comfortable, attractive bungalow with a fantastic view over Drake Bay. They arranged a day trip by boat to Sirena with Elbert, a very knowledgable guide - the brother of the owner, Emillo. We plan to return next February for several days to visit San Pedrillo and to...

I had booked elsewhere, but my friend was here, and given its central location, this is where we hung out. Emilio and his family are just wonderful.

We spent a delightful four nights at Vista Drake Lodge. The hotel is perfectly situated between the beach and town. The views are breath taking and we spent many hours lying in the hammocks relaxing and taking in the various tropical birds that landed in the trees. We stayed in the larger cabin which had a very large walk in... More

We stayed at Vista Drake in January 2016 and it was lovely. The lodge is a nice place with ocean view, absolutely clean and comfortable, near the center of Agujitas / Drake Bay. Besides that, Emilio (owner of the place) and his family are very friendly and good hosts. The service was excellent.

“Two bungalows have the best views and are up on the hill reached via steps. Rooms are street level near kitchen and could be noisier. Tours start early so that does not really matter.”
