Booked 4 nites, stayed 5. The staff is much more than terrific, they really make your Drake experience above and beyond exceptional. The boat ride from Sierpe, landing on the beach in front of Pirate Cove was exciting and an adventure. Our 3rd boat landing in Drake, but first at this time of year so waves were high and exciting, and animals and birds down the river portion very numerous. Check in with Nelson was very organized and he is a super guy. Very knowledgeable and friendly, able to make most anything you want or need happen. He showed us to our Cabina which was clean, water pressure great and hot if you need it that way, mosquito nets over bed (which we never needed !) and a super view of river adjoining property and ocean where we were were lucky enough the second day while sitting on deck to see Mama Whale (Humpback) and baby practicing their tail slaps and jumps in the bay. All of the staff and other guests joined us on the beach, watching this spectacular show..Elizabeth and Marisela are terrific cooks and the food is quite excellent, well above the norm, and meals were fun with other guests. Tours are arranged after arrival, which is practical and cost effective for guests. The addition of 2 or four other travelers reduces your excursion cost and truly makes the experience more enjoyable. More eyes see more animals. The grounds are well kept, cleaned daily, and the only "things" on the low area by beach are kayaks, paddles, and several small fishing boats. River area by hotel is great area to cool off in, clean and fresh running water, would be great for kids instead of ocean. Chino is the boat Captain who made the snorkeling and whale watching trip the best we have ever taken. Dolphins followed the boat wake he purposely made for them, jumping and spinning within 10 feet of us. Primo and Alberto who are the carpenters and security not only give you a feeling of safety but are friendly, funny and will do most anything to show you a good time.Thanks for opening our cocunuts and carrying our 4 week suitcases. Would we return?...definitely at a moments notice, Would we recommend?.. without hesitation. Having been to Drake 3 other times in the last 4 years we truly feel this most special area offers so much each and every time and Pirate Cove Hotel is truly a Pirates Treasure. Thanks for a marvelous time, and see you soon.
