If you've ever dreamt of what it would be like to retire in paradise, this is the place to begin. It's the hub for the local expat community, and you'll instantly feel welcomed into a warm, friendly circle of people who know the ropes. This is particularly welcome for me, because I travel solo. Within 10 minutes of checking in,... More

Mary (the owner) and her staff go above and beyond expectations to provide guests with a welcoming and warm atmosphere. During our 2 week stay we felt at home at the Pato Loco. Our room (2) was equipped with a fridge and microwave which we frequently used for food and beer storage. The pool behind the hotel is clean and... More

We arrived at Pato Loco with the restaurant open, and it seemed like business as usual. The owner showed us to our room, which was clean, though it looked like it was decorated by someone's crazy aunt. She told us to come to the office once we settled. I went into the office to pay, and after giving her my... More

I'm rating the restaurant, not the inn since we didn't stay there. Breakfast is so good, we had to go back twice more. Burrito was delicious! You can tell the food was made "con amor". 😊Very clean and friendly. Great service and great time to chill- bonus wifi.

We didn't stay in the B&B but came for the breakfast and it was amazing! You won't go wrong with the French toast or the Ham & Cheese Omelet or the Big American either. Mary has nailed it! The potatoes are worth having so order them on the side if your meal doesn't come with it. The location is convenient.... More

Although we have never stayed in of rooms, we always make it a point to occasionally stop by for breakfast. This year is no exception. We are just back from French Toast, scrambled egg, home-fried potato, German black-bread toast and breakfast experience. Did I mention the excellent coffee? If you are anywhere in Guanacaste Provence, Pato Loco is a must... More

This place is fun, and is a decent value. I would stay there again. The room was nice. It had a/c and a good fan and hot water in the shower. It wasn't perfect, but for perfect you have to pay $100 a night in this area. The drawbacks were the insanely squeaky bed springs and the badly hung door.... More

Very friendly staff and a nice quiet place to stay!! Was very welcoming and was great to have a nice pool and hang out spot away from all the busy of downtown. A decent breakfast is available as well. The lady that runs this place is a pretty rad chick as well. Would definitely stay again!!

One of the nicest rooms we have stayed in during our 3-month trip in Central America. Large, light room with warm colours and fully furnished: lovely bed, pillows and linen: pretty bathroom with hot water, soft towels and space. A short walk to the beach (10-mins) and rooms away from main road. Good wifi and safe parking. Thank you Mary.
