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

The rooms are spacious, custom decorated, A/C, and cable TV. If you prefer doing some of your own cooking... More

From the moment we... More

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
