This was a great experience for my fiance and my first visit to Costa Rica. It is located on a very quiet and remote location between the small town of Paritta and the fishing village of Quepos. It is on an unpaved road (about 6KM) off highway 34. You are best to have a car.
We were greeted at the reception by Peter, who was wonderfully hospitable through our entire visit. Our rooms were large and very clean, with filtered drinking water and air conditioning. I was told the furniture, dining tables, etc. were built on site by local staff. The beach is literally steps away, and most often, we were the only ones on it! Very private indeed!
The pool looked nice to me but we didn't use it.
Breakfast was included everyday of our stay and was a nice experience. They served some local foods along with fresh fruit and fruit juices each day.
The owner and his son were both exceptionally pleasant.
I think if you want to have a time away to relax and a nice, clean hotel to stay at, I would highly recommend Cocomar.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a small boutique property with only 20 units and hence very personalized service. We are located on the beach of Isla Palo Seco of Parrita, just two hours from San Jose, Costa Rica with nothing between you and the ocean except a few palm trees. We offer 1, 2 & 3 bedroom units. Anything from a standard hotel room to a full 2,200 sq ft. living area with full kitchen and dining area. Isla Palo Seco is still one of the undiscovered authentic beach destinations unspoiled by loads of tourists, yet has a local community to fulfill basic needs while vacationing. The city of Parrita is a ten-minute drive away and has banks, supermarkets, restaurants, shopping, churches and a medical clinic. There are taxis and bus service to Quepos, Jaco and San Jose. ... more less
