We needed to stay at an air-conditioned place in Playa Zancudo. This is only one of two places offering it. Only other option is the Zancudo Lodge, but Oceano is about 5 times cheaper. Rooms are very basic, but clean. Beach is a one-minute walk from the back of the property. Brad was extremely helpful and organized transportation, as well...

My husband and I met Elena the owner on the water taxi from Golfito to Zancudo and without even knowing she had boarding she answered many questions about the area. She brought us to her place which offers cabin style rooms, with air conditioner, a small local channel TV, very clean and on the beach. We felt right at home...

The water taxi dropped us off in a rainstorm on what looked like a deserted beach, and sure enough there was a road and a bus stop, and a little store where we found Elena, who offered to give us a reduced rate in one of the two Cabanas at her place. It was comfortable and well furnished. She is...

Playa Zancudo lies far away from everything that is stressful an d hectic! After you've made the long long way on gravel roads you'll be rewarded by a wonderful lonely black beach. The Oceano Cabinas lie directly on the beach. Elena, the owner is a warmhearted, friendly american. There are only 2 rooms,which are small but absolutely sufficient because you're...

Just a wonderful place to stay. The hotel has two air-conditioned, roomy cabinas that were CLEAN. The on sight kitchen, open air with a thatched roof, served excellent food and had many local customers. The staff was always ready to help and the owner was a wealth of information on what to do and how to get there. Playa Zancudo...

We went to Playa Zancudo for a week of relaxation, sun and beach and found exactly what we were looking for. We spent 6 days at Oceano - there are 2 nice, comfy cabinas with AC that was much appreciated. There is free wifi throughout and it was lightning fast. The beach is only meters away and there's also a...

A saxophone player, Richard, came to Zancudo to play at Coquito. Staying way up the beach and not wanting to have to rely on a taxi for my return trip, my friend and I got a room at Oceano. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and love the food, but staying in one of the Oceano cabinas was a...

This was my first time to the beaches of Costa Rica. I knew it would be warm, or hot for me. I was looking at Zancudo Beach as it was close to Panama where I am living. I could not find a place to stay that had air-conditioning (my #1 priority) until I found Oceano Cabinas. There were only 2...

When we arrived to Playa Zancudo we were warmly greeted by Mark and Stephanie. The rooms were very good size and tastefully decorated. There was hot water and air conditioning, which was much appreciated. The rooms were neat, clean and tastefully decorated. The food was amazingly delicious. In fact I could have just eaten all day everyday on my vacation....
