My wife and I just returned from CR, where we spent 4 days (and nights) at Aguila de Osa Inn. I would easily give 5 stars to the Inn, its staff, and its food (the chef is an AMAZING cook). The food, especially the dinners with a choice of freshly-caught fish from Drakes Bay or perfectly cooked meat, was a highlight of our stay. All of the staff were very well-trained and a pleasure to be around.
The only real "issue" was the fact that we were there as the rainy season began (late May), so we were 2 of only 4-6 guests during our stay. That works fine for service on the property, but a number of the activities require more people (or you pay premium prices for boat, guide, etc.) While understandable, this is a risk you face if you go in the off season. That said, the peace and quiet of this beautifully located and well-maintained eco-lodge was well worth the price and the visit. The guides for the rainforest are not of equal ability. Ours, Randall, was exceptionally well-educated and took a great deal of time to explain the flora and fauna of the rainforest. Another couple had a guide who spent far less time and gave far less info. But the Innn was not responsible for that, and I give very high marks to it. Great place!
