  • Vacation of a Lifetime!!

    "We stayed at The Whale Resort in Feb 2017 and I’m not sure I can capture in words how truly special our experience was! Everything we read prior to departure mentioned how friendly the people of Costa Rica are so we assumed we would have some nice encounters along the way. Nothing could prepare us for how welcoming and friendly they truly are! This included everyone we came in contact with: restaurant staff, tour guides, shop owners and people on the streets were all simply delightful and very open. We have been to many countries and I can say that the people of Costa Rica truly made it surpass most, if not all, of the countries we have visited. Of course, everyone on The Whale Resort team outshines the already high standard set by the other Ticos and Ticas we met along the way! General Manager, Vanessa, is simply amazing. She took care of every little detail, made excellent suggestions for tours and activities and created the most fun and relaxing environment we’ve ever had on vacation. Chef Steven’s meals were out of this world. Even 2 picky kids were eating mahi mahi and fruits and vegetables they had never heard of! I don’t think any of us left anything on our plates, but luckily we always left a “special pocket” for his amazing desserts! Eric was delightful and charming. He took special care to help the kids with snorkeling. Our 14 year old daughter even tried a fresh oyster that Eric dug out of the bottom while snorkeling with the kids. Bena and Chavo both take great pride in maintaining immaculate surroundings, both inside and out. Chavo even climbed up the palm tree and got us coconuts that we sampled on the beach. Needless to say, although we arrived as strangers, we quickly felt that were amongst family. Three of us were in tears hugging them all good bye! The activities were endless. We zip lined, snorkeled, took surfing lessons, went fishing, took a tour of the chocolate farm, watched dolphins, went horse back riding on the beach, saw countless monkeys, sloths, toucans, scarlet mackaws and even a coati in the yard! We simply can’t say enough about our experience with Mike Fox and the wonderful team he has put together at The Whale Resort. It’s an understatement to say that it was a vacation that we will never forget. We didn’t have to worry about a single thing. They took care of everything and we were able to simply relax, enjoy the magic of Costa Rica and spend time with family. It truly was special beyond belief!"

  • Overflowing with beauty

    "Our stay was eye opening to what our footprints leave behind, as we travel through life. The bio-dynamic regenerative agriculture they practice on the farm is very well thought out and provides the land with so much enriched soil, in turn providing the best plants and food for our bodies. The cabina we stayed in was perfect. Plenty of space, shelves and hangers for our clothes and a bed to sleep. We went on several tours, including a hike up a mountain to see the most beautiful waterfall and a spectacular banyan tree, which a couple in the group was able to climb. We were able to help plant some lemon grass in an area around the common area. The wildlife was everywhere you looked. Toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, monkeys, lizards, wild turkeys, and so much more. If you want to get back to nature, and learn to give back to the earth, I recommend staying at Finca Morpho in Costa Rica. It is a great learning experience for anyone who is wanting to learn about sustainable life practices. Thanks to everyone on the farm. You all showed great hosting abilities and made us feel very welcomed. Love to you all!!! Melanie Pentecost, CFD Siloam Springs, AR"

  • Beautiful house! Photos don't do it justice!

    "We had an absolutely amazing time staying here! The house, location, caretakers and staff exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have been happier! The house itself has a fantastic layout, perfectly suited for 4-6 people. The beach is just steps away and the fresh water pool was a lovely addition. I hope to stay again soon and would highly recommend this property to anyone!"

  • Each small house is very private with lush greenery.

    "Peter is a cordial and gracious host with 30 years knowledge of the osa peninsula. We had toucans in our fruit tree each morning and a resident sloth on site. The natural beauty of the osa Peninsula is indescribable. Spent one week. Wish I could spend much more. Rent a 4 wheel drive."
