Resort has been closed and supposedly has a new owner who plans elaborate renovations, but in Costa Rica, who knows? The best alternative to stay for a quiet beautiful and peaceful alternative to the mayhem in Playas del Coco is Bahia Pez Vela which is a 2015 Tripadvisor Travelers choice Award winner.

As has been stated before the place does not seem to be enjoying its glory years. It is a little run down or dare I say, in need of some deep cleaning. Not all bad, though! We did enjoy our stay. The hotel offers a beautiful view and the nearby Ocotal beach was stunning. Staff was not very helpful.

10 years ago this place may have been the spot to be... but now it's almost as if it's a wasteland. The property is VERY run down and everything looks like it hasn't been tended too in decades. There are a total of 5 people on the resort, with a few staff members. Since we've been here, the hotel has... More

I use to prefer mountains instead beaches because I have a huge fear to the sea. But... Ocotal is an exception because the sea is easy and the beach is plane... so... you never feel freaky. Besides that... the service of the hotel is really good.... and the views are stunning

Amazing views. Quiet beach in Playas Del Coco, Guanacaste. There are plenty of monkeys, raccoons, iguanas and birds to see. Restaurant faces the water with decks leading to a path directly to the sand.

In all my travels, this place will have some of our best memories. The ocean views are spectacular sunrise through sunsets, the resort location is serene and picturesque, and the accommodations gave us an "at home" feel. We stayed in the Sunset Suite which has a large bedroom with private bathroom and another large living room with large windows to... More

We got a room up in the 400's with a beach view. The view from our room was spectacular, the pools with ocean views were awesome, unfortunately the room itself was average to not so great.

If you love views, you will love this hotel. On the northern side, closest to the beach, bungalows climb the steep, palm tree-lined driveway leading up to the main building. The restaurant’s large windows and wrap-around porch submit to a panorama so stunning, you will take pause. Iguana’s are all over the place; be careful not to step on one... More
