Nick, Ina and Jim made our stay incredibly lovely. They welcomed us as if we were old friends. Ina helped us coordinate massages and pedicures in San Juan Del Sur and even did yoga with us on the beach.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and had a great, relaxing time. The beach is incredibly beautiful and private. The owners weren't present when we were there, but the caretaker, Gonzales, took good care of us. He prepared any meals we required, and if we preferred, we would eat at a decent restaurant next door. The Nacatamales... More

A friend had recommended we visit Playa el Coco, which we were going to do as a day trip from Playa Gigante, but when our stay in Gigante wasn't all we had hoped for, we quickly rerouted and found La Veranera. It was obviously fate - La Veranera had not one, but all rooms available, so we had the place... More

My wife and I had a perfect honeymoon at La Veranera. We wouldn't change a thing. Nick, the host, is a great cook and an all-around good dude - it was a pleasure hanging out with him, and he took care of anything we could've needed (meals, transportation, etc.) Only thing to know going in - our room (El Mar)...

Have visited La Veranera several times, have written several reviews, and most recently visited a couple of weeks ago. Playa El Coco Is a world apart from SJDS. Imagine your own perfect crescent, white-sand beach, end-capped by two rocky out-crops. And just around the corner from each, another deserted crescent beach, and another... The back drop is the hilly dry-tropical... More

We just got back to Granada and we already miss this little gem of a place right on one of the most beautiful settings on the Pacific. From the white sands, and calming waves to the crystal clear pool and top notch service provided by the Manager, Nick, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and spacious with... More

Breathtaking beauty! The property sits right on this gorgeous, practically deserted beach. Our room, the El Mar, faced the sea and was quite spacious. Ina & Jim were lovely hosts. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast on the veranda with them and Nick, the new manager. Nick is from the US and it was his first day on the... More

This is an amazing, beautiful and comfortable place. The property sits right on the most beautiful beach, and is located next to a restaurant and within walking distance to a local grocery store. In addition, Gonzalo the caretaker of the property, is caring, friendly, great cook and always ready to help in anything you might need assistance with. We are... More

Breathtaking tropical paradise. This may be the finest beach in all of Latin America. It has a cozy feel with the mountains of Costa Rica as a back-drop to the south and a panorama of steady rolling waves that are mesmerizing. I like to body surf and I found waves that were perfect for my enjoyment. Surfing, kayaking, fishing, boogie... More

We stayed just 2 nights (unfortunatly) and had a very good time. Thanks to Luise and Gonzalo! Just a few facts: - impressive beach (huge at low tide, clean, only a few tourists) - great food (breakfast with homemade bread and for dinner we had pizza or curry) - comfortable, clean rooms - big, clean pool We got visited by...
