YUM!

Food is fantastic and offered at a great value. Dine at sunset and you will have an amazing view. Dined her twice in one week.

Loved the food and the cocktails were good. The prices are very reasonable. The service was okay but they mixed our orders up at checkout and there were only four of us so not sure what made it so confusing. I would recommend it unless it is crowded when you go.

A bit pricey but you are paying for the view after all. Food was good, not great. Same with service. At night they have live music and it's a good time. Not a bevy of things to do in Playa Flamingo at night, but this is a not a bad way to spend an evening.

We stopped by, as were walking down Playa Flamingo. Excellent Mohito's, which went well with the Ceviche. A great combination!

We were lucky to visit Coco Loco on our last night in Playa Conchal because it was the best sunset of out trip!! The food was great, the drinks were tasty but the location RIGHT on the beach and the view for sunsets were really magical. Head over right before 6pm.

While staying at Playas del Coco, we drove down to the Playas Flamingo area. After spending the morning poking around and enjoying the beach, we had lunch at Coco Loco.
