Cabinas Coco Azul
Ranked #8 of 11 Hotels in Playas del Coco
Reviewed 22 January 2008

My boyfriend and I were travelling through Costa Rica this past November (2007) and we consider ourselves lucky to have stumbled upon Cabinas Coco Azul.

Although Cabinas Coco Azul is a bit off the main strip, it's worth the short walk. It's definitely clean and suprisingly cheap!
AND it's run by Ray.
And as I always say... people make the place.

Ray, the manager, is a very friendly fellow with plenty of wild stories to entertain anyone for hours. He's also very willing to offer advice, pull out a local map, help out with car rentals or even lend his own frying pan to a traveller in need.

He runs the place like a mother kitten... always looking out for his 'little ones'. He makes the place feel warm like home and may.... just MAY even offer to do your laundry!

Thanks for everything RAY!

Erika and Michael

I lived here for 2 months while working in Playas del Coco - and it made my stay! Ray, who runs the place is such an awesome guy. He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to make our little house a real home from home. Compared to some other places in Coco, Coco Azul is a bargain too. Having lived in Coco for years Ray is a font of knowledge for where to go, what to do and how to get about in Costa Rica and is always happy to offer a word of advice to guests. I highly recommend this place and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when i return to Coco.

You've got to stay at Coco Azul if visiting Playas del Coco. The manager, Ray, was wonderful...very attentive, warm, and friendly. This was truly one of the highlights of our 6 week journey through Costa Rica. The room was spacious, clean and very, very reasonably priced. We looked all over town before finding this gem! There are a variety of rooms available to meet your budget needs, but no matter what you choose, you will feel right at home. Just have a chat with Ray to determine which room is best for you! I really can't say enough good things about these cabinas located behind the church, very close to the beach. Though you may be persuaded to try other cabinas in town, none of the cabinas in this price range even come close to Coco Azul.
We actually sat in our room and had long conversations about how happy and comfortable we were there! Go see for yourself!

I recently spent a week in Playas del coco, at Cabinas Coco Azul. Since I was somewhat limited on cash, I wasn't sure I would find a very nice place to stay, as well as have money left to go on side trips. Much to my surprise, Cabinas Coco Azul was great. Ray, the manager, was a wonderful host, and he really made me feel welcome and safe. Travelling alone can be scary. Ray made me feel at home. Arenal volcano was awesome. My friend and I made all of our arrangements thru Ray and one of his permanent tenants, who just happened to be tour guides. My trip was great, and I am grateful to Ray for his patience and kindness.
