This place is fun, and is a decent value. I would stay there again. The room was nice. It had a/c and a good fan and hot water in the shower. It wasn't perfect, but for perfect you have to pay $100 a night in this area. The drawbacks were the insanely squeaky bed springs and the badly hung door.... More

Very friendly staff and a nice quiet place to stay!! Was very welcoming and was great to have a nice pool and hang out spot away from all the busy of downtown. A decent breakfast is available as well. The lady that runs this place is a pretty rad chick as well. Would definitely stay again!!

One of the nicest rooms we have stayed in during our 3-month trip in Central America. Large, light room with warm colours and fully furnished: lovely bed, pillows and linen: pretty bathroom with hot water, soft towels and space. A short walk to the beach (10-mins) and rooms away from main road. Good wifi and safe parking. Thank you Mary.

Wonderful place to stay with a US owner who makes you feel welcome and right back home. Mary is always good for a laugh and accommodates her guests with anything they need. She's a wealth of information on what to do and see in the area and there are a lot of ex-pats who drop by throughout the day to... More

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Outdated, no real amenities, not family friendly.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 Plumbing is outdated.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