I liked being on the water and hearing the waves crash on the beach. Property is a little dated and needs an infusion of cash to update. Enjoyed the family pictures of long ago at this property.

We loved the location, overall layout and feel of this older family home. It worked perfect for our multigenerational group of 10 (ages 11-86). Loved the outdoor living areas and great to have air conditioning in all the bedrooms since it was quite hot most days. Having the beach right out the front gate was perfect for our kids and the splash pool was refreshing.

The location and 5 bedroom layout of Al Garete was great for our family group of 7 adults and 4 young kids. The kids loved the beach and the little pool at the villa. Nice clean linen and plenty of towels, including beach towels. Coco has a great selection of restaurants, including a few within a short walk. Also good grocery stores, and the villa is equipped for home cooking, including a good bbq. Security was not an issue, tho we were diligent about locking up when we were out. Also good to have the caretakers on site, and they were attentive to any issues we had.

Property was clean and spacious. Literally on the beach - you just open a gate and walk 50 meters. Loved sitting on the porch and listening to the waves roll in.

Greatly enjoyed this unique older Costa Rican beach front home.There is indeed three buildings one with four bedrooms(2 king bedrooms , 2 bunk bed rooms and two full bathrooms), one building with a bathroom plus a king bed and then the kitchen building were the bar windows have been replaced with glass windows which helps keeps the animals out. There is a caretaker that lives behind the home and they never bothered us expect to check us in. We spent our time outside in the common areas enjoying the view and only spent time inside to sleep. The home is older but kept up and very very clean. We walked into town by the path in front of the house, which took under 15 mins. Such a great location!!!! We really enjoyed ourselves.

Al Garete has everything you need for a family vacation. Air contitioned rooms are spacious and the beds are great. They offer an equipped home with lots of towels and anything you will need in the kitchen. Beach chairs and lots of social space (no A/C in the common areas). The pool is small but it works perfectly to cool off. You won't need the pool that much anyway because the beach is steps away and it is gorgeous. The house is a little on the older side but the managers have done a good job keeping it current. We will probably stay there again if we have a chance.
Esta casa tiene todo lo que uno necesita para descansar en familia y amigos.

We loved everything about this house! It was super close to the beach, very family-friendly, and amazingly clean. We loved the trees and the birds and the pool ( small but great for our kids!). The house set up was very convenient with the bedrooms separate from the living quarters and the open air kitchen and dining room were absolutely fabulous for sunsets. Highly recommend!

Great location , Spacious Villa, near the Beach, Beautiful Views, Great Outside Spaces, Many Restaurants and Cafes within walking Distance

Most sitting areas are outside for us it worked very well, and the there are many options

Overall Rooms (mainly Bathrooms) and Kitchen can use better Maintenance and some renewing

This home exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect, right on the beach and about 1 km from town: 10 min walk for adults and 90 drive with kiddos.
The house itself is actually 3 buildings. The living room(s) are all outdoors but covered, which was so nice. The kitchen and dining area were one building, there was a single 'primary' bedroom with attached bath, and the 3rd building had 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. 2 of these bedrooms had king beds and the other 2 had bunk beds/twin beds, which was a perfect setup for 2 families with kids.

Another thing to note is that the pool is small and only about 2 feet deep. We thought this was wonderful because our toddlers could play in it while still touching the bottom.

The on-site manager was convenient but not obtrusive and gave us an extra sense of security. Not that we needed it, as Playas del Coco was a lovely little town.

La casa es perfecta para estar con toda la familia al frente del mar

La vista es espectacular, la casa es muy bonita y las personas que lo atienden muy amables. Apta para ir a disfrutar en familia. La única área de mejora es la piscina que es súper pequeña. Volvería de nuevo 👍🏻

The place was huge and perfectly located on a quiet stretch of the beach. House is well equipped and beds were incredible comfortable with nice bedding. Lots of space for a large group to hang around. The caretakers living on the property are very nice and discrete. We will return!
