The most comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay in the village of Drake, this small bayside hotel with a casual open-air restaurant has simple rooms with tile floors and hot-water showers. Three new, superior bungalows built above the original hotel have expansive views over Drake Bay and air-conditioning. Two cheaper rooms share a bathroom, but the rest have private baths. All rooms open out onto a pleasant terrace with a view of the town and the bay. Guests
get to leave their artistic signatures on painted driftwood mobiles that decorate the restaurant. The on-site diving operation is well run, so the lodge is often filled with groups of divers.
