We just spent 3 weeks at cocomar & had the BEST time! Peter, Hansel, Luis & all staff were amazing, from the minute we arrived ( where they immediately fixed a flat tire on our rental car & upgraded our rooms while we relaxed and had dinner) to our last days where they cooked our fish and gave us tips on activities...every day each of the staff made us feel at home & welcome & nothing was too much trouble. They showed us the iguana living in the tree at the back, taught the kids how to catch crabs & open coconuts for milk with machete, made sure beach chairs & umbrella were available & secured for shade on the secluded beach whenever we needed, arranged an amazing trip with a local fisherman, a katamaran trip with snorkeling out of quepos marina, cooked the fish for us.... I could go on, but the list is endless and everything with a smile, a friendly chat and advice, whatever we needed and more.
The location is secluded, the road to get there is not for the faint of heart (luckily we booked 4x4), a couple of times with the heavy rain we lost power so lost wifi, but it really wasn't a problem - it was kind of cool. Its a half hour drive to quepos & 45 minutes to manuel antonio. Close to an hour to get to Jaco, so ideal for those who want to spend some time in with the locals or in the tourist areas.
The ocean is steps away from the hotel, black sand gives it character, the surf is amazing and you mostly are the only people there - your own private paradise!!.
Breakfast was included and we always looked forward to the morning buffet and happy greeting of Peter & team.
The rooms are cute, comfy beds and nice decor in keeping with surroundings. We had a couple of issues with the plumbing in one of the bathrooms which Peter saw to were fixed immediately. We had minor, and expected bugs in this tropical climate, so kept most opened food refrigerated & no problem. A/c in all rooms worked great especially considering the heat. Pool is great - kids loved it & nice to have the option, as rip tides made ocean swimming a little risky In this area. We would definitely recommend and hope to stay again !! Pura vida :)
