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.

We really enjoyed our stay at Puerta del Sol, a group of three friends sharing two rooms. The color scheme is very southwestern, blooming plants everywhere, rooms were clean, with culturally-appropriate decor but not kitschy. Poured concrete covered with cozy cushions made a couch, or a bed in one room, beds are comfortable, sheets fairly soft. The pool chairs have...

Not a Hilton, but we had air conditioning, a pool, comfortable rooms, a breakfast buffet, and a reasonable price. All within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, souvenier shops, etc. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we're in the area.

We spent two nights at La Puerta del Sol - a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The staff were very friendly and the property is well maintained within a nice garden setting. The hotel is conveniently located within ~5 minutes walking distance to the beach and town "center", and quiet enough to relax by the side of the pool. The...

On the Plus side: Spacious room, good AC, good wifi. Nice pool and well-kept gardens. Host and staff were very friendly and helpful. On the OK side: Decoration is a little rustic. Extensive use of masonry (bed is on a concrete block, and so is the bathroom countertop) On the Minus side: Fridge was a little weak, and already filled...

WE booked a diving package with accommodation with deep blue sea diving. We had a large room which faces the pool with seating outside overlooking the well kept grounds. The trees and flowers were beautiful and there is lots of wildlife even there, with howler monkeys passing often and lots of birds The room is comfortable, with everything one needed,...

We booked an accommodation and dive package through Deep Blue Diving. Excellent in every respect. The chalet style rooms face into lush gardens with a picturesque and refreshing pool - ideal for unwinding after a day out diving. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the town centre - close enough...
