Wonderful place to stay with a US owner who makes you feel welcome and right back home. Mary is always good for a laugh and accommodates her guests with anything they need. She's a wealth of information on what to do and see in the area and there are a lot of ex-pats who drop by throughout the day to...

By far the best place if you can't stand the cookie cutter tourist standard. Reality is what the pato loco is and its owner Mary is great at it. Best genuine service that can be found. All you have to do is ask and honest help and answers follow which is much appreciated after the friends brother family deals the...

Outdated, no real amenities, not family friendly. Breakfast is served but to get bar or dinner is unavailable. Manager has bad attitude. Better locations down the strip. Bar rooms, old beds, few towels. Plumbing is outdated. Air conditioning minimal. No hot water.

We were staying in a few miles away in Playa Hermosa and our friend told us to go to Pato Loco for breakfast. What a great referral! Breakfast was fabulous...Mary actually makes REAL biscuits and fried potatoes. We live in Costa Rica and adore gallo pinto (beans and rice), but what a delicious change from our normal fare. In addition...

If you are looking for great prices and good value for the money, Pato Loco Inn is a good choice for relaxing in Playas Del Coco or as a base of operations for activities such as scuba diving, fishing, or tours. The rooms are spacious, custom decorated, A/C, and cable TV. If you prefer doing some of your own cooking...
