I stayed here with 3 girlfriends in March 2012 and it was beyond my expectations. This is the perfect, beachfront/surfront place to relax, unwind, and enjoy Playa Zancudo. The staff was very attentive and fun, the on-site restaurant serves amazing food, and the whole place has a 'down-home' vibe that is so laid-back and relaxed. I love how there are...

Wonderful vacation at Coloso again this year. This was our fifth time visiting. We walked the beach every day, took a river cruise, fished and just relaxed. Spent many lazy afternoons in the hammock. The weather was phenomenal! Accomondations were very comfortable and the food wonderful. It was nice to have a restaurant on the property and not have to...

If you go to Zancudo in Costa Rica this is easily the best place to stay. Nice cabinas with all the facilities and the best restaurant/bar on the beach. Plus there is really good waves to surf right out the front door. Or Pavones is not far up the road, only Zancudo is much nicer than Pavones.

Simply the most relaxing place I have ever been! We stayed on a beachfront cabins with views of the ocean. I lazed hours away in the hammock. Strolled to the beach for a surf. The quality of the food in the restaurant was great. The manager happily organized tours and activities for us. I will be back!

This was my second trip staying at Coloso del Mar. I took my partner along this trip. This place has it all - sunshine, blue skies, cooling breezes from the ocean and delicious food at the only screened enclosed restaurant on the strip - Coloso del Mar. John Charles - the owner - could not have made us feel more...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Home of the wanted and the unwanted! Or so goes a popular saying in these parts. Zancudo sometimes has the feeling of being at the end of the earth, Central Americas version of the South Seas. Hot, sultry and resplendent. I don't think there are any other colours of green possible. COLOSO DEL MAR sits in the midst of a tropical garden directly on one of the most outstanding black sand beachs in the world. We are located about forty minutes by boat from Golfito and fifty minutes by air from San Jose. We are a little more than one hour north of the border with Panama. ... more   less
