We came here for the 7 night/ 5 day bed & diving package. We enjoyed every minute at the hotel. It is a short walk to Deep Blue dive shop. Another short walk to the beach or to town to the restaurants, bars and shops. A clean, well maintained, quite place with AC and hot showers. There was a security...

The staff here were very helpful and kind, but the water was off most of our two day stay (something outside their control) and the internet went down quite a bit as well. The place was clean and breakfast was good. It is close to town and the beach but make sure you know where to go at first as...

This might be the best hotel in town, but it was nothing special. About 300 meters from the main strip so it was quiet at night which helped. The room was clean and pretty sparse. Probably would look for something a bit nicer next time. Breakfast was included but not very good - and they didn't have a restaurant serving...

This hotel had the dual distinction of being the worst AND the most expensive of the five different hotels we stayed at in CR. Keep in mind that we went during the low season which means we do not know what it's like when it's busy. We paid $102 for the room which was astronomical when compared to the quality...

Don't go expecting the Waldorf. However, for the category of hotel that it falls into, it's a winner. The rooms are small but clean. It is only a 5-7 minute walk to the beach and the same into town. In addition, the staff was pleasant. They also have security on property after sunset.

My father and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Playas del Coco. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a security guard who checked us in. We arrived a little later in the evening, so the regular staff was not there. He didn't speak any English, but he showed us our room and was very pleasant and put up...

We were looking for a quiet place in Playas del Coco, and this place fit the bill. It's located maybe 5 minutes walk from the main road and you don't hear any sound from "downtown". The hotel is clean, the rooms large and our room had a fridge and AC. However, the rooms have no charm at all, so if...

Very nice clean place in 5 minutes walking distance from the main street. Big rooms, wifi, fridge, beautiful gardens, pool and a good "tico" breakfast is all one needs for a stay in Playas del Coco. We've been there for diving and really enjoyed the quietness of the place.

peaceful location, short walk from the beach and main street, excellent accommodation, beautiful gardens and pool area. Good breakfast. Reasonable price. Good place to stay before or after a flight as just 25 minutes to the airport.
