“beautiful place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

beautiful bungalows in excellent location. you are in town but far enough to enjoy the silence. all other bungalows/hotels are either in the middle of town or more than 15 min walking distance from it. the crew is very helpful and full of pura vida. the bungalows are great, small but cosy, you hear howler monkeys and dusk/dawn. unfortunately we had a rainy stay (but it was july). they treated us very good, it was a pleasure and made our stay very comfortable. puerto viejo is a laid back town, you´ll enjoy your stay there!!

Excellent lodge, friendly staff (especially Manolo at the front desk). Rooms were clean and spacious. We opted for a bungalow with no AC, and the room was nice and cool (the fan helps). With it being rainy season, we got to enjoy the sound of the rain. Overall, an excellent place with great value for money. Puerto Viejo is not the safest place, but the lodge does provide an oasis for relaxation. We would highly recommend the place

Room Tip: Pay in cash, which is generally true for all of Costa Rica

Our second time staying at Coco Loco, the place was just as good as we remembered it.

It is quiet and serene (except for nature of course), and the cabins are clean and comfortable. The hammocks on the porch under the grass roofs are a very nice place to enjoy a morning coffee.

The owner and staff are very kind and helpful and the location is very convenient to downtown PV. Parking is secure and we felt very safe here. There is wifi and computer access, a lovely sitting area in the reception area, and showers for after the beach. The price was reasonable, and we got a discount for paying in cash.

I really enjoyed our time in Coco Loco. I wanted to stay additional days but they were booked solid. They have nice bungalows which have some charm. A nice and romantic place to stay as a couple. The breakfast is not included but you can request it the night before for $7. I highly recommend staying here if you are in Puerto Viejo.

With so many places to stay in Puerto Viejo, it is hard to make a choice. However, after nine days of exploring PV, we all (four adults) decided that we were glad that we had stayed in Coco Loco. I must admit, I still mutter when saying the name as I find it a bit cheesy but...everything else about Coco Loco was delightful.

Two of us stayed in a cabina and two of us stayed in a larger cabina with a kitchen. There was plenty of room on the porch for lounging and visiting at both cabinas though we did spend quite a bit of time in the lodge area as that was the most dependable spot for wifi.

The location of Coco Loco was ideal. A block from a bike rental tienda, a Mega Mercado, and Bread and Chocolate! Two banks on the corner as well. The cleanliness of the lodge and the cabinas was very impressive. Our bedding and towels were changed every day...which was a pleasure given the on and off hot weather, rain, and trips to the sandy beach.

The grounds are very attractive. Just the right amount of "JUNGLE" for us. The in room safe was spacious enough to hold a rather large laptop and all our other electronics. (The two men were on a working vacation!) We felt secure about our stuff and our selves at all times.

TIP: You can get a small discount by paying cash on arrival.

A group of five of us went to Puerto Viejo for 3 days and stayed at Coco Loco Lodge. We could not find one bad thing to say about our stay. The cabanas were wonderful, the grounds beautiful and the staff very pleasant. We did not want to leave...

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be nice.

The cabins are basic but offer what you need, privacy, a hammock, kitchenette and bathroom. Clean and spacious, supplies are offered to prevent you from being bothered by mosquitoes. It's just a short walk to the beach and the lovely center of Puerto Viejo. It offers plenty of rest as it is slightly separated from the noise.
