We stayed here with a 12-year-old nephew in August of 2005. We had a bungalow junior suite (#206) and would recommend either 206 or 208 as being midway up the hill between the restaurant and the beach. The plunge pools are right outside the even-numbered 200 rooms, so request one of those, as we felt our neighbors at 205 didn't get the full value of the pool.
Monkeys came by one day about 8am; racoons and skunks and squirrels and lizards and crabs were all about. Cleaning, both of the room and the pool, was excellent. The breakfast was great; view is wonderful -- but like most folks say, the restaurant at night was a beautiful view, but had very little to offer for children. Do Father Rooster's, or the pool restaurant (closes at 6pm).
Another thing that isn't clear - the tours are not chargeable to the room, or on a charge card (they have the machines there to do it, but aren't willing to). There isn't really a full-time concierge for the tours, even though they say there is. There is an ATM in Coco, but I recommend you carry enough US cash to cover the tours. There were several tourists at the bank who were strapped without a debit card (trying to get $$ from their credit card).
We did the ATV trip (good) and the Palo Verde tour (good, but longer than advertised, due to stopping at other resorts).
