We loved the warm welcome and friendliness of the staff here. Everyone was there to recommend, help, organise and in general, make your trip as good as they can. We went on a couple of night tours which were excellent, a day trip in Manzanillo - again very informative, interactive and fun. All arranged by the team at Costa de...

We ate here one evening when they were serving BBQ, and a live band was playing. Service was attentive and pleasant. The restaurant and bar is in an enclosed area, but open around the sides, with no outdoor seating visible. However the airy construction in local materials (wood and palm fronds) was a pleasant setting, and while there was no...

Seems that you enjoyed our big high ceiling palm leaf rancho Restaurant setting, the Calypso Reggae band on stage and the Caribbean Barbecue. That makes me very happy! But I’m disappointed you said you wouldn’t necessary rush back after your pleasant experience. We try hard to put it all together so you can have a really special experience, hopefully a...

The bungalows are situated in a big garden, located in a very convenient way, so that you don't see or hear your neighbours (unless they try very hard to be noticed). Inside the bungalows are spacious, cosy and clean. I simply loved the orange bathroom with a zebra pattern curtain. Thumbs up. Additional star for the tasty breakfast (included in...

We loved La Costa de Pepito. The bungalow was fun, especially the Fred Flintstone bathroom and we thoroghly enjoyed the porch. The setting is beautiful and so close to the beach. Minerva was wonderful and incredibly helpful. We needed to take a cab into town, which was fine but we could walk to a great little restaurant called Sol del...

Fantastic stay at this place. Minerva was so nice and very helpful.The cabinas are scattered on the property surrounded by lush gardens. Had a sloth above my cabina, heard the howler monkeys early in the morning, listened to a variety of birds, missed seeing a toucan. Breakfast was included and had many selections to choose from. Great way to start...

Words cannot describe the experience of staying at LaCostadePapito.. Eddie, his family and staff are so accommodating. This is the reason why it's our second time choosing to stay here. The morning breakfast is very delicious. There is a dinner special every night and one of the best calypso / reggae bands in the region provides live entertainment on Friday...

This place truly gives you a jungle experience with the added touch of whimsical and exotic decor. It does not have a pool but the beach is right across the street. It does have a large restaurant and bar with a happy hour that serves really fantastical mixtures. We ended up in a bungalow larger than we needed but no...
