“nice place, perfect to spend a day at the pool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

we spent 1 night here, wanted to spend most of the time at the beach, but ended up staying more than half the day at the pool with a nice drink in the hand. the pool is gorgeous and most of the day protected by the shades of the trees (where you can watch parrots fly by) perfect for a hot day! the rooms are set in a beautiful garden. staff is super-friendly. liked the hotel more than coco beach itself. they also rent bikes for 5$ a day (which you don't need as the village is tiny). room was huge and very clean. definitely a recommendation!

Enjoyed our stay at this very nice hotel. Lovely pool and gardens, great location and gracious owners/hosts. Located a few minutes walk from town and the beach, but far enough away to have a quiet, relaxing environment. Good breakfast, clean rooms and hot water. Recommended.

We stayed at the hotel for New Year, total 4 nights, and it was very nice and quite, though it was full at that time, but we never saw more than couple people around. The territory is big and full of well kept flowers, trees with fruit and lovely bushes, all rooms with private porches facing this lovely garden. The room itself is big with enormous bed, a sofa with pillows, a convenient bathroom with lots of space, all in what seemed to me a lovely Costa Rican style. Breakfast of fruit, eggs, drinks is included in a reasonable (even during the holiday season) price and served at a cosy outside space. They don't work as a cafe, but you'll find plenty of eateries in less than 5min walk from the hotel, the beach is also 5min by foot. The hotel is situated on a side road, so it's very quite there, you don't hear any cars or other people on the street. Inside parking is also available at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay there a lot, if you want some privacy among the lush vegetation and a pool - it's your best choice at playa del coco!

I love these guys.

the rooms are really reasonably priced. They are clean and big. They have a nice pool.
You can walk into town in about 3 minutes. It has always been quiet when I was there and at night you can hear the ocean (if it's stormy) or the howler monkeys in the trees.

It's great.

I was pleasantly surprised by all this hotel has to offer, while it is only a short stroll to the main street or beach it is wonderfully quiet The rooms are large, well appointed + colourful in a Mediterranean style. The showers are hot, the air conditioning cold, the pool is lovely all in all it's a great find. A word of advice-the restaurant is in lonely planet etc but it only operates in the high season so check below you come if you would like to eat at the hotel. I was diving so some days it would have been convenient, otherwise I have only compliments.

Clean and well kept. Very nice grounds and pool. Beds a little hard because of the concrete under the mattress. Breakfast was simple and you could get your eggs done any way you wanted. Short walk to the beach. On a quiet dirt street. Downtown only a 15 minute walk. Staff was very nice. They don't have a two separate beds option despite what they might say. We did a 7 night dive package with Deep Blue Diving. We went at the beginning of the low season so no lunch or dinner at the hotel.
