Recent Cocles property reviews
"The house is fantastic. We were only two people, but i think it would be comfortable for up to six. It's wonderfully crafted, with doors that open out to the patio so you get that indoor-outdoor feeling. Puerto Viejo itself is a cool town with fantastic beaches. We were a little surprised, though, that the town had kind of a high crime feel to it, but that doesn't say anything negative about the property itself. It's a beautiful property right against the beach. The pictures and description of the house are totally accurate. It's a great place to have a vacation. My only recommendation to visitors is to be watchful and vigilant when in the town of PV, especially at night."Guest: Dave Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 2, 2014View listing
"Wow what a great time we had. So relaxing and peaceful. We loved the true jungle that was all around us and the monkeys and so many birds right by our patio. Our amazing hosts Ken and Shelly took us to this great restaurant called El Fugio soso good.Thanks guys, you're awesome!!! The ocean is bath warm, we had so much fun playing in the water.I would definitely recomend this place for someone who wants to get away from it all. Yet there is lots to do if you wish to. We did the zipline, it was so exhilarating. Cant wait to go back."Guest: Happy Traveler Date of Stay: January 2013 Review Submitted: February 9, 2013View listing
"My husband and I stayed at Casa Caracola for 8 nights. We had a lovely time. The property is exactly as described in listing. Thomas the caretaker was very helpful. He arranged for a tour of a local farm and was a phone call away if we needed anything. All in all it was a great vacation!"Guest: okdevi Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 19, 2014View listing
"Our family of 6 just spent the New Year holiday at Las Casas and had the experience of a lifetime. The property is breathtaking and extremely well-cared for with more room than we knew what to do with. The photos, though beautiful, do not do it justice. The staff was friendly and gracious and went above and beyond to make our stay absolutely perfect. Our first morning, the caretaker pointed out howler monkeys in the trees, showed us a sleeping sloth and then walked us around the property, sharing the fruit of the many fruit trees, many of which we had never seen or tasted before. Many mornings he cut down coconuts and opened them expertly with his machete so we could enjoy coconut water right out of the coconut! Each morning the housekeeper would have the coffee ready and would prepare a delicious breakfast and one day made us the best Caribbean Chicken for dinner! She was so sweet and wonderful she became part of our family! The buildings/modules were extraordinary. The bedrooms were lovely and comfortable, each with its own terrace and bathroom. The main living module quickly became one of our favorites with a wonderful, well-appointed kitchen, huge dining area, spacious living area with tons of seating and hammocks. This became family central and was ideal for planning our day, relaxing and spending time together. The pool area was another in which we spent much of our time. The pool was beautiful and well-maintained... and always seemed the perfect temperature. This module also had a large, well-appointed kitchen with outdoor grill, another bathroom, huge dining area and spacious living area with lot of seating and hammocks. We didn't spend much time in the game room module, although we always intended to but after a day of activities, dinner and swimming, we were ready to sprawl out in the main living area and relax together before going to bed. However, this module is very well-equipped with ping pong, pool table, foosball, TV and lots of comfortable seating. I can't say enough... It was a true privilege to stay here and the staff made it a very special experience for each of us. The activities, shops and restaurants the property manager recommended were absolutely perfect for our family. And the location was ideal; close to town and beautiful beaches but far enough away to feel like a tropical escape. None of us were ready to leave and were saddened to say goodbye to the amazing staff and stunning property. Until next time!"Guest: Jennifer Date of Stay: December 2013 Review Submitted: January 8, 2014View listing
