In August 2016 I was with my husband and my kids in the Hotel Cocomar. The beach and the surrounding was beautiful, a lot of palm trees and just a few people on the beach I enjoyed my time there, but the hotel by itself was not good. In the rooms you could smell a little bit of vinegar, because... More

Hi, Thank you for your comments. We are, of course, very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay. As to the garbage we have no options for collection of recycled materials nor does the Municipality that collects trash on the island. We also have little control as to when they can and do come to make collections. However I... More

Cocomar Beachfront Hotel was everything we read and expected from viewing their well put together website and reading other reviews. It met all our expectations and then some.

We weren't sure what to think as we wound our way through a ramshackle looking neighborhood and down a dirt road seemingly to nowhere. But once we got to Cocomar Beach Resort, we were greeted by the warmest of smiles and the sound of ocean waves crashing and we knew we had made a good choice. The staff is warm,... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. The tour they recommended was fantastic! Breakfast was yummy. Beautiful room. Super close to the beach. Pretty much had the beach to ourselves. Loved it! Great swimming pool also.

All the staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a memorable, pleasant one. The Manager, Chad is fantastic! Victor, his assistant, lent us his hats for an outing since we forgot ours. We saw a family of monkeys (maybe 20 of them) minutes from the hotel coming back one day from an excursion.... More

Wow! Did we enjoy this hotel. I was with my sister and two young adult nieces. We stayed 9 days in room #5 which has a bedroom and bathroom on both sides of a large living/kitchen area. We were on the ground floor with glass doors facing the absolutely beautiful, clean beach. We were usually the only people on the... More

We arrived at the hotel around 4PM. Chad, the owner who also works the front desk made us feel like home. He physically walked us to our 2nd floor room. To our surprise, the a/c in our room was not working. After several attempts by the staff to get the a/c working, we were moved to a 1st floor suite,... More

Sir, thank you for your comments and let me express our disappointment that you did not have a pleasant experience at Cocomar.

This place had a certain amount of charm but was average. The rooms were far from immaculate -- the television did not function, and the Internet was extremely spotty. The bed and pillows were extremely uncomfortable. The hammock and swing outside of the room were nice touches. Food was okay. Beach was beautiful, however, and easily accessible.

We stayed at the Cocomar for four glorious nights in March. Our air- conditioned second floor suite overlooked the ocean. The suite was very spacious- a large living room, a kitchen, a bedroom with two double beds, and an enormous bathroom with a shower and two decorative sinks.. The kitchen was well-equipped with a stove, fridge, microwave, toaster, blender, etc.... More

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
