Hotel Coco Beach
Ranked #44 of 46 Hotels in Manuel Antonio
Reviewed 10 September 2007

Be careful of this hotel!!!!! The owner is a very unpleasant lady!!!!!!!!!! She treated us very badly (and that is an understatement) on our honeymoon, so just think how she would treat “regular" customers. We rented a room there and got stuck in the room because of the bad maintenance of the place. The handle of the door was stuck and there was no way to get out (the room is isolated). I managed to break out of the room after 2 hours and fixed the lock because I'm very technical (even though I didn't have to). Then we went to the owner and instead of compensating us she started screaming and shouting at us without even understanding what just happened.

To make a long story short: DO NOT GO THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We booked the hotel pretty well in advance of our trip over Christmas and New Year. It was a busy time for Manuel Antonio. The staff was very friendly, and the owner, Annette, picked us up from the airport. We got a nice room with the basics - hot water, a TV, AC, a bed, cleanliness. It was fine. We also opened our door to a fantastic view. You should definitely request a room on the hill, on the second floor, if possible. Those are the rooms with the views. The rooms at the bottom of the hill don't have views, but they looked nice inside.

There was no breakfast included in our package. The restaurant there is ok, not the greatest. We ended up eating 3/4 of the time at Soda Sanchez in Quepo, which was AMAZING. There really is NO reason to eat anywhere else in Manuel Antonio than at Soda Sanchez - breakfast, lunch or dinner. We even ate at one of the chicken places near the big grocery store which was good and cheap.

Hotel Coco Beach was nice, and it was very close to the park, the beach, and the bus stop. There are so many places along the road in Manuel Antonio that you could shop around. We didn't see the other rooms, and if we go back, we might check out somewhere else. But for $90/night in that area, on a hill with a view of the ocean and the Park, it was a good deal.

Their website is in complete contrast to the real thing. We felt awful staying here.
When we made reservations on the phone, We were told rates included taxes, hot water, breakfast and ocean view. When we got there, we were given a pitiful room (this was all they had) with promises of a different room in the morning. The room had no view, no TV; Lumpy beds with stale sheets & towels. Worse, stashed away in the bathroom were someone's soap and shampoo. This should never have happened because we had RESERVATIONS!
The next morning, we moved to a different room, which was more expensive and worse. The room had no walls. Only glass from floor to roof, covered by curtains, so we had no privacy. To get the 'ocean view', you had to stand on the narrow balcony outside ur room, which is where all rooms open to.
The bathroom had glass walls covered with curtains (on one side only, so we could never have anyone else in the room). The shower was the equivalent of a tap mounted 7ft high on the wall. No hot water. Again the sheets and towels were stale.
The person who made took our reservations had miraculously disappeared for the weekend, leaving us his mother to negotiate with. Everytime we tried to ask her why we were promised something and given something very different, she would get all distressed and say she did not want to fight!
The hotel grounds were messy. We got an unreasonable bill for the simple breakfast. And at the end, taxes were extra! We felt cheated and stayed at different place as soon as we could.
We would not recommend anyone staying there. Not even for $20 a night (we paid 70.) Awful experience.
