What a gem this place is! You have to take a boat taxi out the Sierpe river to get here and then they unload your luggage and carry it up the bank to this beautiful vista view where your room is. You will wake up to white faced monkeys clamoring around on the tin roof. If it rains...forget about talking,...

This is a wonderful mid range hotel. All rooms have ocean views. The restaurant is located steps from the ocean with lovely views. The staff are excellent. They ensure you are comfortable and help you decide which adventure you want to partake in. The location is on the edge of the bay, about a 10 minute walk along the beach...

Imagine riding on a boat, up the coast of Costa Rica to a spot that you literally can not believe is real. The locals hold the boat as you hop off, knee deep in the beautiful sea and in utter disbelief. This is how you arrive to Jinetes de Osa Hotel and it is something you will talk about for...

Curious little place. Small open air breakfast/dining area. Doesn't seem to be many rooms. Right on the beachfront. Lunch and dinner on offer are not fantastic but ok. Breakfast was pretty good. Organised snorkel and diving trip was very successful and we saw several whales. Staff were fine, didn't experience the pushiness others have mentioned. It's all a bit basic...

We stayed in a very beautiful, clean and very spacious room with A/C. The breakfast included in the price of the room is a buffet where you can order a cooked breakfast + help yourself with fruits, bread, pastries etc. I loved it! The staff is very thoughtful, very nice. We did a few tours such as Diving and snorkeling...

Everything from the hotel, location, staff, and food was incredible. The hotel was exactly what we were looking for- we stayed 3 nights. The location is great- walking distance to everything that we needed. The staff was great and made everything seamless. They were able to book all of our excursions and took the time to talk to us.

From the time I started planning to the last day at Jinetes de Osa Hotel, the staff made all things seamless. They made all arrangements for excursions and travel from and to San Jose. Carlos, Rolando and Michael were very helpful. Giovanni and Erick made the snorkeling and dive excursion exciting and safe. Roy was an excellent guide to Corcovado....

We were there in March 2016, during what many people said was a period of extreme heat and humidity. The location is lovely, at the start of the trail system that winds around the coastline passing numerous beaches. The breakfast was quite good. Meals in general were very good, but pricy, keep that in mind. Originally we were to have...

We stayed here for three nights, and the service the whole time was great. The location is a little further "out of town" but walking to the main road entering Drake (where the main supermarkets/restaurants are) only takes about 15 minutes. I think there is a back road that connects if you were to drive. Making the booking was easy,...
