Lovely family run hotel with all food provided and right on a beautiful beach with Scarlet Macaws in the surrounding trees. Really what more could you want, but there is more, as the head of the family Mario is so lovely and really makes you feel so welcome. We got the most lovely welcome from him and every day that we were there and a big hug when I left , he clearly loves the guests and cares about their safety and well being. We were lucky enough to stay for 8 days and had one of the lovely rooms at the very top, a bit of a climb but well worth it for the views over the garden and bay and the fantastic bird life. The kitchen staff were great and had to cater for several vegetarians, a vegan as well as meat eaters. They came up with some lovely meals and salads and lovely big plates of fruit every morning. The room was really clean with fresh towels daily and a hot shower, just perfect. This was the most relaxing 8 days I've ever had and we still manage to fit in 2 trips by boat to the ranger stations to walk in the forest with a brilliant guide Albert who with the aid of a telescope could show us all the life in the canopy as well as the smallest things on the ground. We would walk on our own for several hours along a good track running parallel to the coast and see Capuchin monkeys, Toucan and Scarlet Macaw with some well earned stops at several quiet beaches on the way and a fantastic rope bridge to cross over a lagoon. You can also swim in the sea just by the hotel or sit in a hammock watching the sea. A big thank you to Mario and his family for an amazing time in beautiful Drake Bay.
