“An oasis of calm!”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Simply the most relaxing place I have ever been! We stayed on a beachfront cabins with views of the ocean. I lazed hours away in the hammock. Strolled to the beach for a surf. The quality of the food in the restaurant was great. The manager happily organized tours and activities for us. I will be back!

My wife and I stayed in an ocean view cabina from March 22 till April 2nd. The second week we were joined by friends and we had a BLAST. The sun,beach, ocean and the food is out of this world. We did inshore fishing, went on a river cruse, walked the beach and saw beautiful sun sets.The staff is the best. The food is like no other. I can't say enoughtabout the Coloso. To Juan Carlos and the boys thanks. You made our stay very,very enjoyable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: The ocean view cabinas are GREAT, but all the cabinas are very good.

This was our 2nd or 3rd time here and we had more fun than last year. Service was great. Room was clean. Food was great. Zancudo is a little off the beaten path but well worth the effort to get there. You are right on the water!!!!!!!!!! If you just want to sit back and relax for a week this is the place. John-Charles will take care of all the details for boat taxi and knows the area well. Staff was helpful , friendly, and honest. We feel safe both day and night in Zancudo .

For the past 8 years we have gone to Zancudo,C.R. for our winter vacation. Never had a bad time. This past year we stayed at Coloso Del Mar. It is small and that is what makes it run so well. The place was spotless. We had had meals at Coloso Del Mar in past years and injoyed the faire. This year it was as good as in past years. That to me is the sign of a good thing. They are right on the water!!!!!!!!!! The rooms are simple , clean and prices are low. Zancudo is off the beaten path and if you just want to get away from everything it is a great place to go. John-Charles is there when you need him as are all of the staff.. There is WiFi but no TV in the rooms. You don't come to Zancudo to watch TV. You come to recharge you batteries.

Room Tip: they are all good

This was my second trip staying at Coloso del Mar. I took my partner along this trip. This place has it all - sunshine, blue skies, cooling breezes from the ocean and delicious food at the only screened enclosed restaurant on the strip - Coloso del Mar. John Charles - the owner - could not have made us feel more comfortable.. He puts his customers first - nice touch. We will return - see you again John Charles.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Home of the wanted and the unwanted! Or so goes a popular saying in these parts. Zancudo sometimes has the feeling of being at the end of the earth, Central Americas version of the South Seas. Hot, sultry and resplendent. I don't think there are any other colours of green possible. COLOSO DEL MAR sits in the midst of a tropical garden directly on one of the most outstanding black sand beachs in the world. We are located about forty minutes by boat from Golfito and fifty minutes by air from San Jose. We are a little more than one hour north of the border with Panama. ... more   less
