I had a wonderful stay at mono loco. I stayed for 11 days. Accommodations were comfortable, clean, and the staff was awesome. Great location, awesome walk on beach to town but yet very quiet. It fit my budget perfectly, breakfast was great they also have the best burger in town when available. Mono Loco definitely helped make my solo excursion possible and I felt as if I were treated like family.

Friendly and easy going staff. Good location to the beach. A no frills room but nonetheless adequate accommodation. Reasonably priced rooms and breakfast. Nice little gem enough away from the main beach but close enough to walk to all the attractions. Would stay here again !!

We enjoy this cosy little hotel. Joyce the owner welcome us nicely. She made sure we respect her room linen.
Room are cosy, bathroom is old but clean. Hot water is control manually and works fine.
The pool is small but enough to refresh after the time pass at the beach.
The price is very good.
You could buy at restaurant serve on site, breakfast with your choice of eggs, granola yogourt with fruits or waffles
Also rental beach and chairs available.

The owner and staff were awesome! It was exactly what wanted for my stay. A very chill vibe. I loved the courtyard/communal area. Wish I didn't have to leave! When I come back I plan on looking up the El Mono Loco hotel again!

The staff at El Mono Loco will make you feel like one of the family (special shout outs to Joyce and Guillermo!). My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights as our condo down the road was full of other family members. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. This budget friendly hotel has a serene courtyard where breakfast and delicious Costa Rica coffee is served every morning. Enjoy your coffee while relaxing on a rocking chair or hammock while peaceful iguanas stroll by. The staff made us feel very welcome and were extremely accommodating. Rooms are simply decorated and clean. The location is right across the road from the beach, which is less than a 1 minute stroll away. This hotel has the vibe of laid back Costa Rica, not the hectic pace of an all-inclusive. For a simple and real Costa Rica experience try the El Mono Loco
