I stayed at Martina's for a little over 2 weeks and I look forward to returning there again soon. Martina is VERY kind, helpful and knowledgable about the best places to visit and see. She also is extremely helpful with organizing any kind of adventure you want from visiting Corcovado to diving & snorkeling at Cano Island to many many others. Her staff Tia and Angelica were also kind and helpful. There's a great kitchen and refrigerator for making meals. The rooms were clean, safe and large. The bed was very comfortable and the high velocity fan was a great addition as well especially during the hottest time of the year. It's also a great central location in about the center of Drake Bay which allows you quick access to the restaurants and grocery store and yet you also have the benefit of being able to walk to the beach and leave for tours easily. I would definitely recommend staying here!
