If you want to be in the center of the action, this is the place for you. Set right in the heart of Playa del Coco’s busiest restaurant, bar and commercial strip, the hotel offers clean if fairly bland rooms that are brightened by colorful paintings based on indigenous designs. The staff is friendly and helpful. Thatched-roof structures ring the pool area and separate rooms from the street, helping to block the blazing Guanacaste sun and street noise. The beach is 2 blocks away.
