“Good Hotel for Area, limited WiFi”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Coco Beach Hotel is located about a block from beach and is ok to stay or better than most. You are right in the action of the beach town. The restaurant at the hotel is reasonable and the fish is excellent, especially the sea bass. The rooms are clean and adequate but WiFi is only available in the lobby area, not in the rooms, plus it is slow speed. amazing they don't install a few cheap routers and change the passcode daily if concerned so people would have access in their rooms. Staff cannot tell you how to program your GPS for areas or other cities plus web site lacks good directions or GPS coordinates. Best to put in Playas Coco Beach then look for the Cacino. If you put in Coco Beach, GPS will not find it. There are no road numbers signs and addresses, so GPS very helpful.

I absolutely lied staying here!! It was fantastic! The service was amazing. They recently changed ownership, which I think is why the previous trip advisor reviews were not so great. Costa Rica is amazing, and this hotel really helps you make the best of your stay. They arranged rides for us for little or no cost. They helped us enjoy different tours and always had great advise. The new management is phenomenal. He checked with us every day to make sure we were happy. The rooms were super clean and cool with awesome AC. The food was AWESOME at the restaurant affiliated with the hotel. We stayed in Playas del Coco for a week, but mostly ate at the hotel restaurant, because it was so great. Aside from the hotel, the town is awesome too, there are so many restaurants and bars in walking distance. Everyone is so friendly and it feels safe no matter where you go. The beach is in walking distance, and is lovely. There is also white beaches in walking distance (coco beach is a volcanic sand beach - darker sand).
I LOVED my stay at Coco Beach Hotel and would definitely recommend staying there to anyone and everyone.

The staff were amazing. Transportation was amazing. Beach was super close. The restaurant has amazing food. Getting around from a to b was really easy. Volcanic sand and white sand beach are both very close and everyone here is so nice. Bars and restaurants everywhere along the main strip and along the beach

Our room was dirty and smelling. Services were slow. It took forever to get our order of food or drinks. Two slices of breakfast bread costed us $2.00! The front desk wasn't helpful and could not give us information.

After a terrible journey from the border of Costa Rica, we arrived in playas del Coco.
The outside of the hotel looks very nice, with a lot of shops and small restaurants.

At 2.52pm we were standing at the reception, the front desk girl told us "your room is not ready, you ll have to wait, so please go to our bar for you to have a drink on the house" as we sat I told the bartender we were send here by the front desk for a drink on the house..so he replied "oh we just give the same complementary drink to every guest, its fruit punch" Oh well I said..he had his chance to make us feel better but he took the incorrect turn.

So, we walked around for an hour, the town is pretty nice! the beach is very clean and just right there, but not ocean front.

We were in our room finally, on the first floor, it look pretty nice but the bathroom..was not what I had in mind. The towels smelled like a deep fryer, the shower curtain had rust and holes in it and there were many stains in the shower floor. The light in the vanity didn't work well and for some reason when you drain water..it has a very bad smell. But, the A/C work, there was hot water and TV cable. The rooms just need an update ASAP. The bed was very comfortable.

We also experience that the front desk didn't manage information about the area...which is seems odd to me since..is such a small and touristic town! We didn't eat at the restaurant because I have read bad reviews about it.

Continental breakfast is included, which is fruits (4 kinds) and toast with butter and jam. Free refill coffee, juice and water are available for breakfast. We order an extra plate of pancakes...which there were terrible, raw in the inside and no fluffiness.
Also, the 1st day we had breakfast, we were not notice by a single server until 30 minutes later. So just go to breakfast early, not on the 8am rush.

If i had to recommend this hotel, I would tell people the location perfect. And maybe is best when you take a suit or something better?

Plus:
1) Cleanliness - rooms - they're cleaned everyday in a very accurate way
2) Staff at the front desk and in a restaurant - helpful also during the additional trip organization. I havent noticed any "pushy-style" as it's written in some opinions. Instead, they do their best to find you the very good option to what you need
3) Location - heart of the El Coco, c.a 400m to the main beach. The hotel is at the main street and thus there's often a noise due to the music from the pubs and restaurants around but you may benefit a lot from living in the center

Neutral
1) well-done pictures that can be misleading. The swimming pool is much smaller than on the pictures
2) wifi available only at the lobby, no access in rooms. As additional, it doesnt support android devices although there are plenty of restaurants around that offer free wifi

Negative:
1) division between continental and american/tipico breakfast. You can upgrade your price-included breakfast to the american/tipico one for 3usd/person/day which is not much although it affects the hotel prestige
2) lack of free shuttle. When you land in Liberia in the evening thete's no other possibility to use the shuttle from company which cooperates with the hotel (the hotel supports in the organization) which seem to be overpriced and costs 55usd/pair
