We loved our stay at here. At first we were a little worried it was too far from the beach or too small but neither was an issue. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. It was my birthday while we were there and she let us keep my cake in their fridge then sang happy birthday to me when... More

By far the best place if you can't stand the cookie cutter tourist standard. Reality is what the pato loco is and its owner Mary is great at it. Best genuine service that can be found. All you have to do is ask and honest help and answers follow which is much appreciated after the friends brother family deals the... More

Outdated, no real amenities, not family friendly. Breakfast is served but to get bar or dinner is unavailable. Manager has bad attitude. Better locations down the strip. Bar rooms, old beds, few towels. Plumbing is outdated. Air conditioning minimal. No hot water.

We were staying in a few miles away in Playa Hermosa and our friend told us to go to Pato Loco for breakfast. What a great referral! Breakfast was fabulous...Mary actually makes REAL biscuits and fried potatoes. We live in Costa Rica and adore gallo pinto (beans and rice), but what a delicious change from our normal fare. In addition... More

If you are looking for great prices and good value for the money, Pato Loco Inn is a good choice for relaxing in Playas Del Coco or as a base of operations for activities such as scuba diving, fishing, or tours. The rooms are spacious, custom decorated, A/C, and cable TV. If you prefer doing some of your own cooking... More

My Brother and I needed to get away from the pace of the States and decided to go to Costa Rica. We knew our old friend Richy and his wife Mary had been running a Inn/restaurant/bar in Coco for a few years now. Though we had threatened to go before, we decided it was finally time. From the moment we... More

We live in Coco. The owners are gone for a few weeks in the States, for a well deserved vaca. We were MORE than pleasantly surprised to find our hostess of the bar, more than happy, engaging and on top of everything. Such great service you'll never find better than here. :) Although the restaurant is closed, D'Anne still made... More
