On our trip to Costa Rica we stayed all over the country and this was my favorite place. Our family doesn't usually do relaxing vacations, we go, go, go. Pirate Cove lets you be active but also is so relaxing and is located in such a beautiful setting. We booked a package with room and food included. We stayed 3 nights and booked 3 tours, a night tour, tour of Corcovado NP and a snorkeling tour. The boat rides were rough but definitely an adventure. If you have isues with sea sickness, take meds before the boat ride(s).
We stayed in room C and out kids stayed in room B. We stayed in the AC rooms and I wouldn't change a thing about that. We didn't have the porch like the non-AC rooms but all the activity happens in the dining area/main deck. You can hang there and enjoy the view.
The food was delicious and I enjoyed not having to pick off a menu. The suprise of what was for dinner was great. The portions were large.
We were the only Americans staying at Pirate Cove which I enjoyed. We met a nice pair of couples from Belgium.
We only speak english, all the staff spoke English which was helpful.
I wish I could have stayed a week.
