Perfect location right on the sand! Awesome rancho with hammocks and beautiful views of the waves breaking. Edwin who checked us in was super welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. We had dinner there one night and the food was amazing! Gourmet veggie curry and chicken! Yum! Very affordable, basic rooms were well furnished to hang out comfortably and play... More

I really love this quite, cozy place right on the beach :) Highlights for me were the great food and cocktails at the restaurant served by super friendly staff, the gorgeous pathways and flowers all around the property, the wicked shaded open air hammock deck (hammocks...

Great escape for much needed rest and relaxation. Cute cabinas and many rental houses plus onsite restaurant with bar services to make stay complete. Being able to enjoy the beach outside just beyond cabina's porch as a joy. A side trip to watch surfers nearby was an added bonus.

The Cabinas are very simple but clean. The bathroom needed work and all the plumbing fixtures were dated and in need of replacing. The suites did have a coffee maker but no fridge and no safe. No breakfast included but there is a restaurant on site. Very rustic if this is what you like. Prices was reasonable. We would consider... More

I took my employees to Coloso for a staff retreat. This was my third visit and I can not say enough good things about JC and his great establishment. Edwin, who is onsite manager, endeavors to make sure you are taken care of. And JC makes the best cosmopolitan anywhere in Costa Rica. He loves to share stories, is really... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Coloso del Mar because of the great airfare to Costa Rica during the green season. The road into Zancudo was very difficult to navigate but staying at Coloso at this time of year was wonderful. A complete disconnect. A great mix of sun in the morning and rain in the evening. The great... More

My wife and I have made the Coloso stay a number of times. The tropical location is just beautiful.The cabinas are comfy, clean and close to the ocean. The staff and owner Juan Carlos are amazingly helpful. The food at the restaurant is some of the best in Zancodo. We spent twelve days and hated to leave..........but we will return... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Home of the wanted and the unwanted! Or so goes a popular saying in these parts. Zancudo sometimes has the feeling of being at the end of the earth, Central Americas version of the South Seas. Hot, sultry and resplendent. I don't think there are any other colours of green possible. COLOSO DEL MAR sits in the midst of a tropical garden directly on one of the most outstanding black sand beachs in the world. We are located about forty minutes by boat from Golfito and fifty minutes by air from San Jose. We are a little more than one hour north of the border with Panama. ... more   less
