  • Modern, comfortable condo... close and convenient to beach and downtown Coco!

    "Our group of seven included my mom in her seventies, two adult kids, two teenagers and my wife and I. Finding a place to hold us all comfortably was a challenge, but this ground-floor, close-to-the-pool unit in the quiet and luxurious Sombras development was a great choice! Each bedroom had comfortable beds and its own A/C unit as well as a ceiling fan. The two bathrooms were modern and had great tub/shower combos as well as lots of hooks to hang suits and towels. The kitchen and living area were perfect for preparing meals or for relaxing after an adventure-filled day. There were two pools for us to enjoy, the closest only 20 feet outside the patio door. We enjoyed using the gas grill on the patio a couple of nights as well. The beach is about a 10 minute stroll in one direction and downtown Coco is 10 minutes the other direction. The closest convenience store / mini-market is just next door and is located in the same development as the property management company who can arrange for rental cars or adventure tours. We didn't rent a car or golf cart on this trip but had not problem getting around on foot or with relatively inexpensive taxi rides. Our favorite restaurants were Pappagayo Seafood downtown and Claudio y Glorias just off the beach close to downtown. For a less expensive "soda" experience, we enjoyed Jardin Tropical across from the Port Authority office. For a great meal and incredibly friendly hosts try HelloHanny's in Artola on the Monkey Trail road to the Congo Trail zip line center. The beach and sunsets in Coco were great. We also enjoyed exploring nearby beaches in Ocotal, where you should visit Father Rooster, and Playa Conchal and Tamarindo further south. In summary, this great unit was a perfect base camp for our diverse group. Everyone enjoyed the comforts of home while there and it made resting up for the next adventure a great pleasure. Highly recommended!"

  • Great view

    "We spent 8 nights in this condo. The sunset from the balconies are hard to beat. The décor was modern and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked well with dishes and pans. They were lacking in mixing bowls and there were no spices (salt and pepper) at all. The internet worked well and was fast. The bed was to firm for us and gave my husband a backache. We had problems with one of the showers. Bluewaters sent someone out very fast to look at it. They got it going but unfortunately the pressure never was good in that shower so we stopped using it. The water pressure is not that great anyway. The electricity went out for short periods of time about half a dozen times but was always restored fairly quickly. The beach is beautiful and just a short walk away but the short walk back is very steep as is walking just about anyplace. This is good exercise but beware during the heat of the day. The surf has a strong undertow and was not good for swimming. We saw whales, rays, dolphins and some other type of large fish. The pool is at the top of the complex. We got more noise from the pool at the neighboring resort than the pool at Oceanica. The pool here was never crowded and shaded as the afternoon went on. There are not a lot of shops, etc close and is more a place to relax, walk the beach and watch sunsets which is what we like. A car is needed to get out and about but they can be rented by the day as we did for exploring. Mateo can organize this and they deliver and pick up the car at the condo."

  • Lost in Paridise

    "Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great vacation. The Villa at Playa Ocotal was outstanding! Sunsets on the lenai were breath taking!!! The villa was well equipped for our stay and the staff was more than accommodating. It was cleaned daily during our stay including rooms cleaned, beds made, fresh towels the hot tube and pool both cleaned. The staff prepared three delicious meals per day along with snacks and cocktails. The bar was staffed daily until 8p, which made it even easier to kick back and relax, wink. When they say all inclusive they really mean all inclusive! Everything on property was included and taken care of for my party. Off property The owner and her team did everything they could to set up our stay including booking of all off property excursions and making sure we had transportation to and from. Excursions included horsebacking,zip lining, sunset yacht cruise, hot springs swim, water slides and shopping in Coco. This was hands down one of my groups best vacations and all of us recommend you consider Villa Ocotal when booking your Vacation in Costa Rica."

  • Greetings from South Carolina

    "Hola! Suzanne, Just wanted to thank you for inviting us into your home. We had a great time and fell in love with your staff! We especially were attached to Berne and had a good time with him. He has a very welcoming personality and we had fun exchanging our Spanish/English languages with him. Lola was fabulous too! We met several locals that we now consider family and couldn't have asked for better weather. We really appreciated your hospitality...your home is beautiful...your personal touches and artwork were priceless! We enjoyed zip lining, river tours, turtle tours, the food was phenomenal and the people were warm and very genuine. We relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the wildlife mornings and evenings. This is an experience we will never forget and hope we can return one day! Muchas Gracias!"
