Three friends and I stayed in these awesome little cabinas from December 27-January 6. We had the most amazing time with a private two bedroom cabina, surrounded by jungle hills and only 5 minutes from the beach. Our kitchen was full of necessary utensils, with two hammocks out front. We listened to howler monkeys every morning and enjoyed hanging out... More

We just had a fantastic family holiday at Green Mystery. The pool was wonderful after a long drive from San Jose. We enjoyed the early morning sounds of the howler monkeys and the kids loved the freedom of feeling that we were in the forest. Our unit was well equipped and the airconditioning worked well. When I lost the keys... More

This place is a mess.. ac's broke, doors broke, no keys to lock your unit when gone. The "property manger" pole dancing naked on your way down the path -more than we wanted to see on vacation! Dogs barking half the night from the 'property managers' home, cats everywhere. The photo of cabina is absolutely not whats down there, no... More

After checking our registry log for any person named "Sarah" and coming up blank, I will assume this is a false name. If Sarah was renting here, and her description is of walking past my villa, she would have been renting from another owner. I have no villas for rent in the area she describes. Therefore the problems that were... More

worst vacation rental for a family ever! website not accurate - no bar, BBQs, hammock by rancho/pool, Internet/wifi. Property manager has 10 barking dogs & 20 cats. Villas sub-par with broken doors that didn't lock, kitchen not equipped.

This review was obviously written by persons we had to remove from a rental villa due to non payment of their rent, as well outstanding electric bills. Also accompanying this was abusive behaviour, and I have signed documents from other renters/owners here on vacation at this time. They asked for new door locks, these were replaced with new locks. A/C... More

Have stayed at El Verde Misterioso twice...each vacation has been very enjoyable. Love having our own bungalow and the choice of cooking our own meals or going out to one the many wonderful restaurants in the area. Love the floor to ceiling windows in the bungalows and had the howler monkeys visit a few times in just one week. Would... More

We stayed here with friends in January, 2009. The resort is a simple grouping of condo style bungalows with air conditioning, 2 bedrooms, living area, dining area and a kitchen. They had wireless internet available and a great pool and bar area. Cooking some of our own meals was a small luxury which is often overlooked, but can really make... More

My husband and I had a great time playing cards on the porch and watching the sunset from the nearby beaches. We spent 5 days at El Verde Misterioso (The Green Mystery) with another couple, and really enjoyed the peace and quiet. El Verde Misterioso is a beautiful getaway in Playa del Coco. It features two bedroom villas with a... More

This was the nicest place we could find in Playas del Coco (Coco Beach) that was in our price range. The villas are cute and bright with almost floor to ceiling windows. There is hot water, air conditioning, and a fully functioning kitchen, which we really appreciated. Grocery shopping in the area is just like it is back home, but... More
