I just got back from spending a week in this condo with friends. It had everything we wanted. It was a short walk to the beach as well as to downtown Coco. We did find it quicker to walk down the beach to get to the downtown rather than taking the road. Taxis are very easy to get and will take you anywhere in town for 1000 colonies or $2 US. The local people staying in the same condo complex were very friendly and helpful. The pool was kept very clean and it was wonderful to have it available to use.
Definitely somewhere I will visit again!
I had a wonderful stay here in Costa Rica . I would first off by saying the apartment is absolutely beautiful and CLEAN. The location is great, your away from the night life but close enough to either walk or take a cab for 1000 col. we rented a golf cart for a few days as renting a car was a bit out of our budget. the apartment is equipped with everything you need for every day living. the grounds are well kept and its quiet. Everything in the complex is very friendly. Coco literally has everything bars,restaurants. 4 grocery stores just everything you need. i couldnt have asked for a better place to stay. we had a great time and we already planning for next year :)
I found this rental to be a great value for the price. Well equipped condo in a residential neighborhood - this is not for party people, local families live in the complex. Though the complex requires some structural maintenance work, it was kept fastidiously clean by the pool and ground staff. We were very comfortable here and totally enjoyed our stay. It is approximately a 1km walk to the end of the main street (Zi Lounge, Coconutz Bar). We rented a golfcart and had a great time.
Luis, the owner, was very quick to respond to questions and emails. He provided detailed information about finding our way to the condo, the wifi info and amenties.
Luis checked in with us via email upon our arrival to ask if there was anything else we needed. Definitely would return if he would have us! The only reason i removed one "star" from my rating is that the complex itself is a little dated and it is 1km away from beach/shopping. This did not affect our enjoyment of the property but may be a consideration for others.
A totally enjoyable place to stay at Playas del Coco. Extremely well equipped apartment with all amenities one could enjoy while vacationing in Costa Rica. Modern, simple and practical, with just a few steps down to a pool and just a short walk to the beach and the main shopping/dining area. The development is well cared for with great landscaping and breathtaking views onto the hills. We had a great time and left with memories that will last a lifetime.
