10/10 Exceptional

We loved this property! It was so clean and beautiful. The views are amazing. The property is clean and quiet. The propietor was amazing and friendly. Very accomodating. The ONLY issue we had was getting to the property. Which warrants a little bit of warning ahead of time. We arrived after dark, so we were a bit taken aback, because part of the road is dirt and cuts thru a very narrow road in the jungle, and then the road up is incredibly steep. The parking lot is very small, but there was parking up above it which worked out nicely. Overall, they have done an amazing job on renovating, the place is so clean and beautiful and extremely friendly.

Great location. El Ocotal is quiet, quaint, and close to Playa Del Coco’s main strip (within a several minutes’ drive). The hotel is clean and well maintained. The views from the rooms, deck and pool are amazing. The Staff is very attentive, courteous, and caring. I have no complaints whatsoever.

What a beautiful view from the pool. I could have stayed for for a week. The walk down to the beach is about 15 mins, where there’s a good restaurant.

Breathtaking & Quiet
What a find! For $100 a night you get the best views, a pool you only have to share with 6 other units (in other words, we never shared the pool) and the most welcoming hosts. Only like 10 minutes away from Playa Del Coco, and close to a few great restaurants near by. The room was fresh with high ceilings. Beautiful individual patio with direct access to the pool. We didn’t have breakfast but it seemed like a great set up. We will be back.

Mr Dishonest!
Despite having been promised by the owner that we would get a refund as we had to leave early due to the corona virus we have been informed that we will get nothing back. The property is not easy to find or get into and is certainly not a 5 minute walk from the beach! Breakfast is vastly overpriced too! The in room coffee maker didn’t work and it took 24 hours to replace, this only happened because we asked the maid and she got one from another room. The WiFi was very intermittent and kept disconnecting. Fitness facilities? Spa? I’m guessing this alludes to the vibrating bed? Designated smoking area is on the road, mini bar over priced, no washer dryer in the room and no offer of the use of one. Terrace? Beach bar? I would certainly not stay here again and would advise others to think very carefully about booking here.
