My husband and I stayed at Cabinas Manolo for 3 nights. Drake Bay is a very small community with few facilities and luxuries, but Cabinas Manolo was conveniently located just a short stroll from the town center, where there are a few restaurants and a grocery store available. It was also only about a 10 minute walk down to the nearest beach. A much nicer beach, Playa Cocolito is about a 45 minute walk down a beautiful trail - well worth the visit!
The rooms are simple but very clean. There is no air conditioning, but we were able to sleep comfortably with the fan pointing at our bed even in the hot dry season. The food was alright but not amazing. We had better luck with the other restaurants in town. Ask for a room with a hammock because ours didn't have one. :( Power seems to be a bit unstable at this hotel (with regular surges) so if you have any sensitive electronic equipment, be careful (although this may be characteristic of Drake Bay as a whole).
We spent 5 days at Aguila, it was amazing. The guest list is small and intimate, the food fresh and delicious and the staff is amazing. Bradd the owner is on site and delightful. There is something for everyone, but relaxing is perfect too!!! Best part of our Costa Rica experience!!
