The drive to Zancudo was a lot better then a few years ago. A lot more of the road has been paved and new signage. Coloso Del Mar was easy to find and was welcomed by John Charles the owner. We were a little early for check in but John Charles got us to our room within minutes. Our cabin had a nice view towards the beach and the over all property is very clean and refreshing. The cabins are rustic but very clean and comfortable. There is no a/c in our cabin but it was not needed due to the end of the winter rainey season. Breakfast and dinner on location was excellent. That's when the snow bird gringo's came out of the wood work and they were regulars. John Charles knew them all and had their drink orders memorized. Very surprising to see a snow bird community in an out of the way place like Zancudo.

Room tip: No bad room. Walls are a little thin but not bad.

Definitely an amazing place to stay in Zancudo. Cabinas are big, confortable, really clean, with hot powerful shower. We stayed there for three nights and this is the best place we've been in CR so far. The restaurant is perfect, nice food and affordable prices (even for backpackers). We can not enough recommend this place for a short or long stay, just to relax in front of the sea and enjoy the sound of the waves. Staff is very welcoming and charming. If you're looking for a quiet, beautiful, clean place with reasonable prices you should choose el Coloso!

This was my second time at Coloso, and still beautiful as my first time! It's located in one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, Playa Zancudo.

Rooms are clean and have a really nice space. Really good food and drinks. JC the owner is a very good host.

Great location, the staff is very friendly, the beach is mere steps from your cabia. There's a great elevated platform to overlook the ocean and/or take a nice nap in a shaded hammock. Also, they have the best breakfast (crepes) on the playa, and a number of great fish recipes available for dinner in a cozy screened in porch.

My wife and i traveled the southern pacific side of Costa Rica and found a little gem of a spot in Playa Zancudo. Coloso Del Mar was the perfect hide out. Located on a quite stretch of beach, cute comfortable cabins and a little restaurant and bar that will fit into anyone's budget. The cabins and restaurant are well maintained, clean and the food is excellent, not to mention the beer is always ice cold. The staff are both English and Spanish speaking, very friendly and able to help in anyway they can. We look forward to our next visit. Rick
