My 16 year old daughter and I ended up at the Cocodrilo by accident, as overflow from our usual hotel in Tamarindo. Cedric, Sandy and Mickael were all so welcoming and helpful, it felt more like visiting old friends, and we were sad to leave when our planned hotel opened up. We found the rooms and grounds clean, and very well kept. Everything was in good working order, and I have no doubt that if there was a need, it would have been met. Just ask! The location is right by the main surf break, so perfect if that is your thing. Being on the edge of town kept it convinient but also away from the late night bar scene. This is Costa Rica, so please don't expect a Miami Beach experience, then all will be well. Everything has its style/value.
The gate to the street is locked at late night and there is a night guard for added security, so we felt fine even though the room locks seemed a bit weak and the shelf on which the roomsafe was bolted was weak at best. I'm sure Cedric would safekeep anything you wanted if you felt the need. We didn't. Claudine and the bakery were first rate. Again, please don't expect a "Cinabon", or McMuffin; but if you appreciate a buttery Croissant or fresh Pain au Chocolat you will be oh so happy. We will be back!
