More than expected
This property pleasantly exceeded my expectations. Many times the pictures are inaccurate or outdated (it "used to" look that way). However, the unit was as per the pictures, and in fact, the pictures do not do it justice. Very well stocked, great AC. Will most certainly stay here again.
Great place with location and pool
Will stay again
Thanks Robert for booking my place !
The condo was perfect! Area seemed a little deserted at first, but once we walked around everything seemed perfect! Great area and not too touristy. Everyone was super friendly and we will definitely be coming back. This was our first time to Costa Rico and I cannot complain about anything. Great first time experience!
Thanks a lot!
Cool and Clean!
The studio was cool, clean and very convenient. Several times we actually had to turn the a/c off because it cooled so well even at a higher setting. The condo was nicely cleaned when we arrived and we didn’t encounter a single insect the entire time during our stay. We walked to the beach and to several restaurants in town. We also enjoyed hours in the pool and sitting on the patio.
Sherry, thank you very much for booking my condo apartment! Welcome back!
My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the B201 condo. The apartment was more than we expected.
The whole experience was very memorable. The swimming pool was huge with the swim up bar handy for conversations with other tennents. We experienced no problems and will certainly return for two weeks or more next year. - Jim & Darlene
Thank you for picking up my place for your winter getaway!
Aqua De Lechuga
This condo is very nice and very secure. Their is a night watchman from early evening to early morning(not that it's needed) we always felt very safe any where we went because the people in Playa Del Coco are very nice and friendly. Alla's suit is very comfortable with everything you need. If something were to go wrong Alla makes it right very quickly, she was fantastic!! The pool area was extremely refreshing with many friendly long term stayers welcoming you when you arrive. A short walk to the beach and many grocery stores makes this location ideal.
Thank you, guys for being so accommodating and helpful!
