Guest Testimonials

Guest Testimonials

'Audrey & Simon': We booked a week at Banana Bay Marina and had the best vacations of our life! Fishing was awesome, as well as all nature activities. Thank you very much to the very helpful and friendly staff. We'll come back soon!


'SV Barnacle': Beautiful place, good food, new friends…It doesn’t get any better! Thank you Banana Bay for sharing Golfito with us. John & Pam Newbound


'El Viejo': Wonderful People at Banana Bay Marina! We hope we could stay longer, but we leave with the promise to be back soon. Thank you all very much for a wonderful stay. Capt. Carlos Austin


'Dardanella': Thanks for the great hospitality. We came for a few days and stayed a few weeks! The fish stories were as big as the fish! Special thanks to the restaurant staff. The yucca was the world’s best! We will tell all our friends. Chas


'Mirage': This is an oasis! We have been here for seven months and it’s time to leave northbound back to the states. It is with mixed emotions that we cast off our lines. During the past eleven years cruising the Pacific/ Atlantic/ Caribbean, we have stayed in many marinas. Absolutely none compare to Banana Bay Marina. At this marina, service, security, hospitality, and assistance are expressed and rendered in capital letters!! For the staff here, no task is too trivial or too difficult. The crew in the office, marina, and the restaurant, go that extra mile to insure that guests are comfortable, safe, well taken care of and feel “at home”. Those who have preceded us and will follow us are indeed fortunate to have such an available resource. We were strangers when we arrived, and are leaving with true friendship in our wake. Thank you! Pura Vida! El & Bev Nelson


'Captain's Lady': What a wonderful first experience to Costa Rica. As a guest en route to Panama and Florida, I will return in my own vessel to visit again the wonderful friendly people of Golfito. For only a few days we have discovered a true paradise. Deanna Rabune


'Impression': To all at Banana Bay. Thank you for all the help during our stay. Although I have not been here continuously, your help throughout our stay of 7-8 weeks has been fantastic. We have traveled many thousands of miles since we left Europe and this marina rates as one of the best! David Scagel


'Second Kiss': You have a fantastic place with a great staff! Thanks for a pleasant stay, we really enjoyed ourselves. See you on our return a few years from now. Best of luck, John & Diana Lorenzo


When one travels, there are only a few places that you visit that are special. Banana Bay Marina is one of those special places. It is a first class operation with competent management. Costa Rica is a wonderful country. While here at Banana Bay, I was able to take land trips, book flights, get boat service done, and just relax. I will have good memories of Golfito and Banana Bay Marina that will be with me for a very long time. Art Hedstrom


'Second Wind': We will always remember the helpful and gracious staff, friendly guests and great facilities of Banana Bay Marina. We will tell everyone we meet not to miss Banana Bay Marina. Thanks for taking such wonderful care of “Second Wind” while we went home for 7 months. You did a superb job of making sure she did not go green while we were gone! Ken & Lynn Swanson


'Haley Kay': Other marinas should take lessons from Banana Bay on how to provide customer service. Our sailboat is small, our budget even smaller, yet everyone at Banana Bay made us feel like captains of a large yacht. The Barthel’s


'Log On': Great visit! Finally in the tropics. Wonderful to sit on the veranda and watch the sunset eating a great hamburger. We hope to return next year. Doug & Nancy Peltzer


'Windflower': What a wonderful surprise! Banana Bay Marina was a cruisers “find” for our family. We’re heading home to California after four years out and about the world and our stop in Golfito, CR was a nice welcome back to the Pacific. You folks are friendly, peaceful, helpful and efficient. Not only did you make us feel welcome, in a short time, you made us feel like family. We’ll be back and ready to see more of Costa Rica, with Banana Bay Marina our home base. Gary, Caryn & Nathaniel
