When I booked this hotel , I didn't realize it's 40 km far away from Manuel Antonio. The minute I realized my mistake, called them to cancel, before my arrival of course. But the owner didn't accept to cancel as he has a strict cancellation policy, 15 days in advance. I booked the room 4 days before my arrival... I...

If you like quiet relaxing hotels then this place is for you. Cocomar is approximately a 20 minute drive off the main road and is very quiet. When we stayed there were 2 or 3 other families there, but we felt like we had the hotel and beach to ourselves. The rooms are extremely spacious, ours was a suite with...

If you want a secluded slice of beach heaven then this is your place. Chad the owner and his staff were the perfect host providing us with a perfect week on the beach, they make you feel like family. The beach was so secluded that you could walk an hour and see no one else. It was wonderful to have...

If you go to Costa Rica this hotel is something extra. I recomend having a car. The hotel is so nice and serve awesome food for breakfast and dinner.

I was at this hotel with many expectations as it has very good reviews on Trip Advisor, however, after spending a couple of days there, I believe it does not deserve such high score: The shower bath was not working properly but hard to adjust the temperature and it had problems with water runoff causing standing water, they used two...

Cocomar Residences in Parrita was definitely hospitality at its finest. The owner, Chad, and his wonderful staff ensure that each visitor experiences the best of Costa Rica and all it has to offer. If you're looking for an affordable and private area with a hotel or condominium style layout along the beautiful beachfront view of the Pacific Ocean, then Cocomar...

This place is really off the beaten track and far away from everything touristy. Only 50 m to the beach and beautiful view of the ocean from the restaurant. Very personal and friendly staff! Even helped us with our laundry! Great food for dinner.

We were greeted with nothing short of the upmost respect and hospitality. The view and the room are as natural as the respect the owner and workers portray to everyone. I could not have asked for a more perfect stay solely due to the perfect service provided. I was expecting a great stay, as we met the owner, it did...

We went there twice, really nice place to stay in front of the sea. The manager was really friendly. The beach is beautiful. The rooms were clean and had a huge bed. Be aware of the mosquitoes and bring Off with you, otherwise the will bite you from toes to head

I wish we had known about this place prior to 2 years into our stay in Costa Rica as a Diplomatic Family! Chad provided excellent customer service from the time I called to book our room, until the moment we returned the keys that ended our mini-vacation. He e-mailed directions, which were very clear and direct. He gave us a...

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
