Coco Palms is a great little hotel with bar and restaurant (with the best sushi in town). It also has the only 24 hr Market in town! Some rooms have an oceanview, as it is almost right on the water. The staff is very fun and friendly. Although this is no 5 star hotel, the rooms are clean and neat... More

From the moment we checked in we felt as if we had been part of the Coco Palms family for our entire lives. Great food, great service, and a wonderful atmosphere.

We picked this hotel based on its location, and it was great in that respect. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. Adrian in particular is a gem.

There are not many choices for hotels within walking distance to town and the beach in Playas del Coco. This hotel seemed like the best choice. It is not fancy or updated, but the service is very good. There is a 24 hour convenience store on-site, a pool and a good restaurant- I had the sushi. The pool/restaurant area is... More
