We spent 4 days here in April 2015 and had a relaxing and enjoyable time. The rooms were clean, spacious and colorful. Mary, the owner was friendly, and accommodating especially when preparing breakfast which is known to be the best spot in town for this meal. we arrived at Happy hour-and settled in the bar area- which was full of...

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Outdated, no real amenities, not family friendly.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 Plumbing is outdated.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

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.
