“Great value”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Bit hard to find in dead end passed the church, but location is actually great, 2min from main str and beach, and quiet. There is wifi, tv and even jacuzzi. Alberto is great, good chat and very caring for guests and his sick mom. I was eating in front of my room, wild racoons were running around looking for food, awesome. Overall excell value (25$ for double) in a nice, familiar no frill place.

Alberto is the man! very friendly and helpful, met Steve the owner on our second stay and is a blast.
Clean, cozy rooms in a quiet street parallel to the main strip, only minutes away.
Great value for your money!

We'll be back, thanks a bunch!

Unfortunately the room we stayed in had very little ventilation, a noisy fan and a squadron of mosquitoes waiting outside the door to attack you. Manager you later got dismissed wa complacent and dis-interested. Apart from that it was great...
Diving in the area is very good.

I booked my studio apt for one month this past Feb and ended up staying for three. I was very impressed by the price of the cabinas for what you get. My studio had a kitchen, AC, private bathroom, double bed, and a lovely patio. Only a few minutes walking and you are right in the heart of Coco and the beach. However, it is also very private and quiet. I normally choose larger complexes as a single woman traveling alone, however, I felt extremely safe and comfortable staying at Coco Azul. It felt like home. The owner Steve and manager Erik were very helpful and kind. On numerous occasions they went out of their way to make sure I had the best stay possible. As someone who has stayed at several cabinas condos and apts. in Coco I will say, If you are traveling here you really cannot beat Coco Azul. I will be back soon!

It was the greatest hostel owner during my travel in central america. It was great fun!! Thank you very much Steve!! It was great fun!! We stayed for a couple of days and the histel owner offered great service. We went fishing, had a whirl pool and we always knew where there is a place to eat. He even invited us for dinner in his house with his girl friend. Most relaxing atmosphere. Best decision to go there!!

We spent 5 weeks in an upstairs cabina, and we loved it! If you'd rather be surrounded by howler monkeys than by American/Canadian tourists, this is the place for you. Some of my fondest memories of Costa Rica involve hanging out on the porch of our cabina and watching howler monkey families in the manga trees nearby. So amazing! During our stay, we met both Costa Rican and international tourists who stayed at the cabinas. Coco Azul is located a couple of blocks from the beach and a couple of blocks from the main strip. It's closer to Playa Blanca (the nicest beach on the southside of Coco, in our opinion) than most of the other condos or cabinas. We found the location to be perfect, and we walked everywhere. There's a 24-7 convenient store less than a block away, and the grocery store's not too far of a hike.
This was the cheapest place within walking distance of the beach that we could find in Coco, and we did a lot of searching! It is a great deal. Of course, the cabinas are not the Ritz, but we definitely got our money's worth. The cabinas are clean and have character. Water (even hot water), cable, internet, and electricity are included in the rates. The internet isn't always working, but when it's down, it's down all over Coco. Our bedroom had a window AC unit that we used at night to cool the room. Steve, the owner, is a friendly guy and will go out of his way to help you enjoy your stay in Coco. He'll also give you advice about how to make the most out of your stay without breaking the bank. He's from the US and may or may not be around during your stay, but his manager, Eric, is quite capable of running the place in Steve's absence. Eric was a great help and is a great serenader, too.

We were 6 days at Coco Azul. It was a great time. The owner (Steve!!! also a great guy!) give us a good price for this long time. And the room and service are definitely the best for this price in Playa del coco.
The Owner also has great tips for lb-traveler to do some nice trips for free (bus cost).

We had no Problems with ants and no loud party music...it was already quiet!!!
for some other here....no offer of toiletpaper??? going and ask for it!
I dont know where you was "katrin 088" but not at coco azul! thats sure. its a beautiful place to stay! :-)
