We had an amazing diving experience with them! We stayed at the hotel to go diving at Cano Island. Ana was our diving instructor and did an awesome job of showing us the dive sites, and finding the resident sharks and mantas! Would highly recommend!

I visited Drake Bay in March 2021 and went to Pirate Cove hôtel dive center to dive in Caño island ! It was a very good experience, staff was super friendly and their equipment was perfect too. I personally recommend Ana, our dive instructor. She was very friendly, helpful and professional !

This was my first but not last visit -I live in Costa Rica. We went a little upscale to keep from being too hot, & it was well worth it - we're in our active 60's. They have some books & free kayaks. The river that empties into Drake Bay here provides some fascinating looks at tidal changes & the beach is beautiful. All the cabins are shaded & there's plenty of birds.

Room Tip: We were very pleased with #8, a bit away from the main area.

Great diving leader on the Caño Island tour dive. Very relaxed and professional with sufficient instruction. I recommend Anna. The tour was great although for the money you spend, the ‘free lunch’ was a little poor in my opinion. Whilst I don’t expect lobster as a main course, I would expect a bit better than a bowl of spaghetti. When you offer something as part of the tour, you should still take these things into account in my opinion. All that being said, the tour was fantastic and well organised! Thanks again!

We planned to stay 3 nights, but then decided to prolong due to the quality of the hotel and the many activities we intended doing. The hotel is super clean, there is coffee always ready for you. The staff is super nice and supportive. We were diving with the crew directly connected to the hotel and loved it. The location is great, not too close to the village center. We'll stay there again the next time we come - that's for sure.
