"I live in Nicaragua and have stayed at the Playa Coco condos several times, this was my first time staying in this particular condo. I re-visit this beach often because it is one of the few beaches in Nicaragua that is relatively safe for kids and for people who just want to play in the waves - not for surfers. It is also a very quiet beach - often you will find that you are the only person on the beach. And, it is exceptionally beautiful, especially the sunsets.
The complex itself - buildings and grounds - are well built and maintained, and most are furnished with Simplemente Madera furniture and finishings, which is a high quality Nicaraguan brand that is beautiful and that withstands wear and tear. The security at this complex is also very good, I always feel secure staying there, and the staff very friendly but inconspicuous. As for this particular condo, it is also very well maintained. My only suggestion would be to make sure the owner confirms that the guards have your name so that you can enter immediately, without having to take 10 minutes to look up your reservation on your phone. It would also be useful to have a guide to use the TV - there were 4 remotes I had to figure out each time I went to use it, which was only late at night, and I asked a guard inside once to help me out but that was not ideal. Also, these condos are in groups of 3, and one of the condos in the same grouping as this one was under construction, so I would check first with the owner that this is finished, as the workers start at 6am each day. And although it is an 'end' townhouse, that in terms within the grouping of 3 it is not a center unit, it is not one of the end units on the complex as a whole.
All of this being said, I will visit Play Coco again and would recommend this particular unit!"
