“Costa Rica 04/2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We stayed here from April 19th - 26th. The place is clean and well maintained. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are large with plenty of electrical outlets to charge all my cameras and computers. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a delicious breakfast each morning. The price was reasonable. It really is a 3 minute walk to the beach and 5 to town. I enjoyed our stay a great deal.

Room Tip: We stayed in G, it was convenient to the pool and lobby.

We searched for some time before we chanced upon this lovely oasis of calm and green on a side road away from the beach itself.
The other local hotels did not have room ,but this nice place was empty except for us.
The grounds are delightfully planted, well watered , tended and full of flowers--a green oasis. Just calm and quiet!
The single storey rooms are large, well designed, a/c cooled , with fan, are spacious, have refrigerators, a safe and good Wifi.
They are set around the gardens and pool which has shade from trees and garden making it a good spot to enjoy a day of recovery or a welcome return from other vigorous activities.
The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is full with fruit , eggs any style, juice and your choice of coffee or tea.
We spent two nights here , just to recover and relax, it was calm . peaceful and apart from the varied birdlife, very quiet.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel as excellent

we spent 1 night here, wanted to spend most of the time at the beach, but ended up staying more than half the day at the pool with a nice drink in the hand. the pool is gorgeous and most of the day protected by the shades of the trees (where you can watch parrots fly by) perfect for a hot day! the rooms are set in a beautiful garden. staff is super-friendly. liked the hotel more than coco beach itself. they also rent bikes for 5$ a day (which you don't need as the village is tiny). room was huge and very clean. definitely a recommendation!

Enjoyed our stay at this very nice hotel. Lovely pool and gardens, great location and gracious owners/hosts. Located a few minutes walk from town and the beach, but far enough away to have a quiet, relaxing environment. Good breakfast, clean rooms and hot water. Recommended.

We stayed at the hotel for New Year, total 4 nights, and it was very nice and quite, though it was full at that time, but we never saw more than couple people around. The territory is big and full of well kept flowers, trees with fruit and lovely bushes, all rooms with private porches facing this lovely garden. The room itself is big with enormous bed, a sofa with pillows, a convenient bathroom with lots of space, all in what seemed to me a lovely Costa Rican style. Breakfast of fruit, eggs, drinks is included in a reasonable (even during the holiday season) price and served at a cosy outside space. They don't work as a cafe, but you'll find plenty of eateries in less than 5min walk from the hotel, the beach is also 5min by foot. The hotel is situated on a side road, so it's very quite there, you don't hear any cars or other people on the street. Inside parking is also available at the hotel. We enjoyed our stay there a lot, if you want some privacy among the lush vegetation and a pool - it's your best choice at playa del coco!

I love these guys.

the rooms are really reasonably priced. They are clean and big. They have a nice pool.
You can walk into town in about 3 minutes. It has always been quiet when I was there and at night you can hear the ocean (if it's stormy) or the howler monkeys in the trees.

It's great.
