Firstly, I will say this is an apartment complex and every apartment is owned/ rented by different people l. The apartment we stayed at was posted on air bnb by dawide.
The apartment is a clean and practical studio near the beach (not beach facing) with a lovely tiled pool and jacuzzi. It's an excellent budget choice to see the playas de coco. We didn't really use the cooking facilities and fridge was good. The air conditioning was temperamental. Only negative point will be the sheets should be cotton and better quality they won't slide off the bed that way also the air conditioning worked but was moody sometimes and didn't want to go below 25 degrees .. I still really recommend it for a short stay :)

We stayed at Marina Loft Apart/Condo for a total of 10 days. We had a great time in Costa Rica, even though there was no hot water in the shower and the fridge stop working after being there for only a few days. The person in charge at the office kept promising to get the hot water fix, but it never happened. After not having a working fridge for a few days, she said she bought a new fridge to replace ours. When the new fridge came, she replaced ours with another older one and kept the new fridge for her apartment instead. ???

We spoke to a lot of people staying there on a long term rent (4 months). They have the same problem. It seems most of the appliances there are very old and either working of and on or barely working. The hallway ceiling appears to be under repair, but we never saw anyone working at all.

The place has a lot of potential. It could be a really nice place, if the management would just spend some money and make the necessary repairs and improvements. It's hard to know which ones are the privately owned and which ones are not. I would suggest to rent directly from the private owners and ask beforehand if the appliances are in good working order.

On a positive note, the pool is big and nice. The place is clean. The location is 5-10 minutes walk to the beach and 10-15 minutes walk to downtown Coco. The cleaning ladies Sandra and Maria are nice and friendly. The yard boys does a good job keeping the landscape and yard clean. There is a free laundry room for your use.

Before I start, Marina lofts has multiple apartments owned and rented by different people - ours was from David.
The apartment is big and clean, quiet and comfortable and the pool nice. It's a good 10-15 minute walk from the centre of cocos.
Check in was chaotic. We didn't have Internet in the day, so they cancelled the reservation as we didn't reply before we arrived at 6pm, and then turned all phones off. Also there was no hot water at all despite a promise to call maintenance . Advice: make it clear what time you will arrive and if you are not contactable before.

We spent a month in Coco and stayed at Marina Loft. We would definitely stay there again if we went back. For the most part people keep to themselves but everyone was very nice. The staff were always very nice and helpful.

As for amenities, the WiFi quality is very good and available everywhere including rooms and common areas. The only problem is the password changes a lot so you have to keep asking for the new one. The washer and dryer are not great and it's usually busy but this wasn't a big deal for us. We were happy to have free laundry on site and gladly hung out by the pool while we were waiting. The grounds, including the pool, are very well maintained. You see people cleaning and watering plants every day. Apparently you can rent bikes but we never did.

We found the location to be perfect. It's a five minute walk to the beach, and a 15 minute walk to the main intersection of town. This side of town felt more local and we preferred it to the north side of town which felt very touristy and removed. There is a convenience store grocer across the street which has a good selection of pantry items, and many produce stands along the way to the main intersection. We frequently ran to Playa Ocotal and back since it's only 2.5km away from Marina Loft. We also found a nice, more private beach just south of Coco that you can hike to on the rocks along the coast. We could be walk there from Marina Loft in 20 minutes. If you need a cab you can call one or just start walking, we always got one within a few minutes.

At first, I was a bit scared by some of the older reviews but still decieded to go for a week. Upon arrival, the pool is just stunning!!! the nicest in the area and by far!!! the condo itself was really clean and the location is just perfect! 5 minutes to walk to the beach and 10 minutes to city centre, it doesnt go any better than that!!! We also had monkeys almost every days just a few meters from us, pretty cool ! As for the older bad reviews, I spoke to a few long term resident and they all said that the sewer issues were solved years ago. As it is a condo, they all are individually owned so just make sure the on you rent will be in good condition, or check reviews for the specific unit you want to rent.

Room tip: Chose a unit around the pool for better view or entrance for cheaper rates.
