Swimming Pool

Cool off in our beautiful pool, a favorite feature of the lodge. Guests love hanging out by the pool with a coconut in hand and enjoying its cool waters on a hot day. Families and kids in particular love our kid-friendly shallow end! There is plenty of space for social distancing.

They love us & you surely will Too

«You know your in a good spot when you hear your teenager mumble to himself “this is a cool spot”. After arriving during a long day of travel, we were greeted by the delightful hotel manager Maria. She could not of been more accommodating by keeping the kitchen open after getting lost from the airport (that is another story). If you want to stay away from the tourists and have a more authentic experience, this is the spot for you. The villas are equipped with everything you need.»

Paradise in Costa Rica


«We had the whole resort to ourselves for a family wedding, and we had the BEST time!! The staff bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. The food was truly delicious — SO fresh, all organic and locally sourced. I wish I could get such good food in New York City, where I live!! The ocean is a 5-minute walk down the (not at all steep) path.»

«A friend of ours stayed and Driftaway February 2021. He raved about the property. We booked a week stay in June 2021 with a meetup with our friend at the resort. Very, Very nice. People are so friendly. We needed peace and relaxation and that’s what we received! Nice pool and away from the busyness! We would highly recommend this resort!»
