What a fantastic experience this place offers. My wife, son and niece went down for 4 days. We had some of the best fishing we have ever experienced. The rooms are not 5 star but that's part of the neat experience. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The boats and captains are as good as you will...

We have held a fishing tournament the last 3 years at Crocodile Bay. The service is excellent and the staff go out of their way to ensure a fantastic trip for our guests. The rooms are very clean and well appointed. With all the amenities it's hard to believe you are in the jungle. The fishing is the star of...

Crocodile Bay is absolutely beautiful hotel and spa. And a fisherman's dream. It is primarily a fishing resort, with a fleet of tower boats and crews to man them. They go out everyday at 6:30 am and return at 3:00 pm. Breakfast is at 5:30. There are also eco-tours for non 'fishermen' or for those who want to take a...

We just left. We were a group of 24. Everything was fabulous. You could go here just to walk on the grounds and animal watch... Macaws, Tucans, iguanas. The captains and mates and fishing = big time fun. Thank you Melvin, Freddie, Johnnie, Will 2, Sharley, Wilbert, Tony, etc etc. The kind friendly staff took care of our every need...

Spent 12 days at Crocodile Bay in January. Since it was our eighth visit, you can tell we really love this place, its people, and the whole experience. Getting there is always smooth - due to flight connections, our arrangements always include overnights in San Jose, but efficient English speaking Crocodile Bay staff are there by your side the whole...

We spent six days here over Christmas, I took my two college aged boys here. I can't say enough good things about this resort or its staff.

We just go back from our honeymoon at Crocodile Bay. All in country travel and transfers were arranged by the resort. We were well taken care of by all involved. The staff rates a 10 on all levels.

My wife and I spent 4 days at Crocodile Bay Lodge. It was wonderful in all aspects. The lodge set up a transfer package to get us from the San Jose airport to Puerto Jimenez including a night in San Jose. The transfer was flawless and well worth the money. The transfer agent did an excellent job of filling us...

I recently spent 7 days at Crocodile Bay Resort and was sorry to leave. The fishing was great, the resort grounds were beautiful and well kept and of course the staff was wonderful. Plenty to do aside from fishing as well. It's a beautiful little town and worth exploring everything this wonderful area has to offer.
