“very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

the hotel is in the middle of the town of playa del coco. the room was nice and clean with a safe. there was a pool but no jacuzzi which we didn't use as we were only a couple minutes walk to the beach. it has a casino, but it was pretty sad and dead while we were there. the place says it comes with breakfast, but don't be fooled! it does come with breakfast, but it was some fruit and toast. if you want a costa rican breakfast or an american breakfast, you're going to have to pay. it's not much, but they shouldn't really say the room comes with breakfast!

we liked that it was in the middle of a town. there are other beaches close by that are much more secluded and quiet if you prefer that, but we liked being in town since we could walk to restaurants and bars. it can be noisy, though, when you're in your room since all rooms are set back from the street but still face out to the street. very loud cars and motorcycles pass through during the night. it can be annoying if you're a light sleeper. all in all, though, i would definitely recommend this hotel.

These guys really know how to care for people. Jorge the manager is great and will take care of you for sure. This is a great place to stay. I will stay again. The beds were by far the best I've slept on in Coco. Was very happy to have a real mattress.

hotel had worst smelling toilets ever, had to keep bathroom door closed at all time so smell would not infiltrate room, also water pressure was literally a dribble if wanted a warm shower. in the first room given to us, the toilet was leaking all over the floor and shower walls covered with mildew. towels were the most worn out I have ever seen, location is on main street, so loud music until 3 am at night heard through doors. find another hotel unless you want to be on main street.

I stayed at Coco Beach in early July and the hotel and staff were awesome. The food is great and the service is very good.
Mariela and Erick at the front desk were great and helped when asked ( with a smile )
Luis was great at arranging tours
It is a five minute walk to the beach and within close walking distance to the shops, other cafe's and the supermarket.
A WONDERFUL COZY HOTEL WITH GREAT SERVICE. Worth every penny spent !!!!

My friend and I stayed here from June 30th, 2014 to Jul 7th 2014. The staff was always very friendly, accommodating, polite & personable. Most of them speak english almost fluently. They were always happy to help if we had questions or needed advice. This is not a resort which was even better. Our rooms and the entire vicinity was always clean and well kept. It's a beautiful cozy little hotel smack dab in the middle of town and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. As far as non resort hotels in Coco Beach go, I'd have to say this is probably the nicest! I could go on and on about the hotel, but I think I'll end with the hotel manager...We only ever got one person's name which was Luis one of the concierge's (Not a fan) but the hotel manager, we saw him almost every day and not just at the hotel, in the local shops and restaurants. He always said hi and made sure we had everything we needed and made sure we were always taken care of.
Thank you to the staff of Coco Beach hotel for being part of our best vacation so far!

Do not stay here if you are traveling with anything of value. The safe malfunctioned upon our arrival. Their repair man picked the lock to reset it, but it still didn't work. We considered locking valuables in our car, but the hotel parking was open to the main street and another car in the lot had its back window smashed in, so we opted to put the camera in a nightstand drawer while we were snorkeling and hid other valuables elsewhere. The camera was stolen from the room by staff. We notified the manager the day it disappeared but he was incapable of recovering it. We gave him 24 hours to interview staff and return the camera, but he only gave us excuses and said it was not there. The camera was expensive, but replaceable. The pictures of our daughter's first siting of a two-toed sloth, her captivation with the playful behavior of wild monkeys in trees overhead, her face lit up by the joy of having a hummingbird land on her finger - these images and many more are irreplaceable. They were on the memory chip stolen with the camera. Please do not reward the blatant dishonesty of this hotel with your business or your valuable belongings.
