Reviewed 31 July 2011

This place was very cool.Its off the beaten path, but really close to town center.Our host Steve was very nice and helpful.He gave us the best advice for food and drinks, as well as a very down to earth guy from the states.Very secure place and a great place to stay if in del coco for surf trips or fishing.

Great location and Steve the Owner could not be more helpful. The cabinas are very clean and there are rooms for couple,families single people with the ability to stay on monthly rates at a very good price.
They are close to the ocean and walking distance to all restaurants and shops but far enough away to be in a quiet location.
Its advisable to phone for availability as he can be busy, from the bus station at the end of the road it is a 3-4 min walk. For those that are driving there are spaces for parking.

We spent three nights at Cabinas Coco Azul and enjoyed it very much. The location is perfect - a couple of minutes from the beach and just as close to the 'main strip' but set in a beautiful, rustic little cul de sac. The surroundings are wonderful, with awesome mango trees inhabited by howler monkeys, and chickens and dogs happily running around creating a real feeling of being amongst the beautiful nature of Costa Rica. The rooms are basic but clean, secure and great value for the money, particularly for Costa Rica. Steve was a wonderful host and bent over backwards to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He took us to a local fisherman to buy cheap seafood and lent us everything we needed to have a BBQ, thanks Steve! One point to note about Playa Coco is that there are many free wifi points but only one expensive internet cafe so bring your own devices if you can. Security is not an issue in Cabana Coco Azul. All in all, we cannot fault this great little find!

this was our last place we stayed.... we were here for a few days.

the beach is not the best, but the place had a great night life. It was VERY Americanized, which was kinda sad.... lot so of local boys following us around.

the hostel itself was pretty good..... the man who owns it was nice enough, did get mad at us for a homeless dog following us home.... we were woken up early every morning by howler monkeys throwing stuff on the tin roofs, which was kinda funny.

Apparently it's the place to go for snorkling.... I never went but I heard it was.....

I would recommend this place...

First off, I want to mention that there are an overwhelmingly abundant supply of places to stay in Coco.
I was greeted by a guy named Steve, an expat of sorts with a seedy disposition and an excessive friendliness. We first were given a room with two separate twin beds, no a/c, a fan, and a fridge. Since this room was priced so modestly ($95 for 3 nights), I inquired about a room with an a/c. He put me in another room, with a matrimonial bed as he calls it, a small kitchenette, fridge, and a/c unit. He threw in with self-proclaimed generosity a small tv. This was at a price of $140 for 3 nights. Now, the rooms are decent, but not at this price. Yes, it had a kitchenette, but all truly uninspiring.
Here is a list of the things that went wrong:
* Lack of maintenance, there were ants crawling all over the room, clearly they had eaten their way through walls and grout.
Handles were busted, missing light switch plates, patch work, I can't remember all the details
* A/C busted. The cheap A/C unit was extremely noisy, in addition, it leaked an entire lake of water in our room, as well as barely cooled the room. When I brought this to Steve's attention he said he would call someone to fix right away, and never offered to reduce or return money that we were paying extra for the service. Repair never came and according to a Danish girl that had been staying there for months, a phony promise he had been making for quite some time.
*no cleaning of room/no offer of toilet paper/towels
*Very Loud Club music at night
*Power went out, final straw, and asked for money back
Check out "The Beach House" up the street, very cheap, no reservation needed, very clean, and owned by *gasp* a Costa Rican!!
P.S. Whoever Ray is, is not there anymore.
