Owner Michael Allen created a little paradise for his friends and customers. Locals love the place, amidst tropical vegetation with palm trees, bougainvilleas, and well-manicured landscaping. The view over the mountains and nature is open to all sides. You choose where you wish to sit: in the restaurant, the terrace and next to the pool, the lounge area with comfy seating, or the well-equipped bar. There is even a stage for live music. It is a place to relax and to allow your soul to dangle. Experience the kindness of the waiting staff and the owner Mike himself.
From the kitchen, the most enticing aromas are reaching us. Mediterranean cuisine is the Chef`s specialty: the food is prepared with fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, chickpeas, couscous, rice, and legumes. Their lean proteins include fish, poultry, pure olive oil, and other healthy monounsaturated fats with moderate quantities of red meat, cheese, yogurt, and red wine.
A Mediterranean diet is not specifically intended for rapid weight loss. Instead, it is a way of eating that focuses on wholesome, nutritious foods. Chef Michael prepares the best Lamb dishes in town, Lemon Chicken Feta, Chicken Souvlaki, Marinated Seared Tuna, Shrimp Pasta, or Greek Lasaña. The Baba Ghanosh or Chili Marinated Calamari are just a few more examples from the ample menu. There are children´s plates and delicacies for the sweet tooth.
And wine and spirits: the beautiful bar is well-stocked with European and Chilean wines, beers, and Kombucha. Great cocktails are available; ask for yours at the poolside.
The premises are so ample, fresh, and airy, and there they follow all hygiene measures, so you can pleasantly chill out at this extraordinary place.
Please make your reservation for the forthcoming holiday seasons; a special Christmas or New Year`s Dinner is awaiting you!

What a beautiful spot. You will now understand why people love this secluded beach, surrounded by lush rainforest and lined with palm trees. It mostly has calm waves. The shallow waters are safe for children (always under their parents’ observation and paying attention to the lifeguards’ alerts.)
Indeed, most of the Costa Ballena region is dependent on tourism. Given that as the background, we hear from our homeowners, clients, and the social media channels: What can we do to help with the local economy?
Most of the construction on the Costa Ballena and Osa Peninsula is done by hotels and second-home builders drawn by the lush rainforest. Native timber feels like an obvious choice: who doesn’t love a handcrafted Cristobal door’s luxury?
It is an exhibition with identity, designed by and for the inhabitants of the Osa Canton. It is a temporary exhibition “In Osa history travels by bicycle,” which you can admire at the Finca 6 Museum site, in Palmar Sur.
