Each and every time I come to stay in Playa del Coco I eat here the first night (and others). The menu offers quite a large selection of food from fish to sushi to hamburgers. If you catch a fish they will prepare it for you and your table (if you want this option). There are fans overhead that keep... More

Stayed a few nights around New Year's eve in a large room with a big balcony overlooking the pool and partially the sea. Although aged, the room was impeccable with only one remark - the door lock didn't close shut unless you slam and jiggle it until it locks. This came in handy when my card stopped working a few...

We got to Costa Rica a day before the rest of my family so needed a hotel to stay in for one night before checking into our house. We chose this place because of the great reviews. We arrived at 8:55pm, we did not know they closed at 9:00pm. We made it just in time. We could not find parking... More

Traveling with my family of 6, we stayed one night here. It was hot outside but we had a powerful air conditioner in our room and a great pool where the kids spent a couple of hours after dinner. If you are looking for a 4-star hotel, this is not it, but it is good and served our purpose. I... More

We experienced a security issue: the door to our room would not lock from the outside consistently. It could be opened by firmly putting pressure on the door handle to open the door. Hotel staff was not available for me to address this issue, although I did document it in the survey we were asked to fill out. I could... More

the room has no window to speak of, it was glass window with curtain that you cannot open. the bathroom is very small with no hot water with sink outside in the bedroom. Bedding are faded and old. room basically is quite small. housekeeping is fair.

First quick note: GPS might try to take you to he wrong place, but dont despair, just ask people and work your way to the main bar/restaurant street to find the "soccer field" they use as a point of reference. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The room is huge and clean. The pool was our favorite part as... More
