Cocomarindo is a dump - we were SO excited to stay here because of the reasonable price and awesome pool pictures on the internet only to be extremely disappointed. At first glance, our condo looked okay but was somewhat dated with sparse furniture. Then we really started looking around - there were dead bugs, smears on the walls, our bed had thin & faded linen that looked like it was 40 years old (at least!) and the double bed was horribly uncomfortable. The room hadn't been cleaned before our arrival and the whole place was just nasty. Our first night was like a torture test to see if we would survive...it was so hard to go to sleep when you've got that creepy feeling, if you know what we mean.....we also survived a second night because after voicing our complaints, they didn't want to give us our money back!!
But then it all came to a 'crappy' ending when the sewer backed up - they tried to move us over across the street to the Marina Loft and after waiting about 2 hours to 'see' a room, we were disgusted to find even more bugs and a non-cleaned room even though the manager ensured us this was the best room they had, even more scary!!
We left and went to the Coco Bay Hotel & Casino where the rooms were clean, we had an awesome bed with a down comforter, fluffy pillows, and a QUIET air conditioner - a complete dream compared to Cocomarindo! Our suggestion? If you just want to enjoy your trip to Playas del Coco without any hassle, AVOID Cocomarindo at all costs ;)
