Great Time In Playa Del Coco

Review submitted: September 29, 2013   Date of arrival: September 20, 2013

Three of us ventured off to Playa Del Coco for one week in September and had a great time. I was a little concerned about it being "rainy" season however we only got one day of rain and a couple of rainy nights. It was quite hot actually, maybe 45C during the day with the humidity and high 20C/low 30C in the evening. We NEVER wore long pants or long sleeves - way too hot. It was great having the pool right outside the patio doors, we used it often throughout the day and evening when we weren't busy touring, fishing, etc.. Great time of year for fishing; we caught over 15 mahi mahi and had more than enough fish we were giving it away to locals. The condo itself was very comfortable and very clean. It was well equipped with most amenities however some of those mentioned on the VRBO site were not provided such as: basic soaps, paper towels, laundry soap, security system?, ice maker? whirlpool (maybe it's at another location on the grounds but we didn't see it). Only ONE roll of toilet paper was provided even though there are two washrooms. They provide beach chairs and an umbrella to take to the beach however no cooler which would have been useful. Lucky for us we met other people who were staying at Sombras and borrowed theirs when we visited playa Conchal. One annoyance was early in the morning the pool maintenance guy would use a "leaf blower" to clean up the area around the pool from fallen debris from the trees. This took place any time between 6:15/6:30 a.m. The condo itself was approximately a 7 minute walk to the main road and another 8 or so minutes to the main grocery stores (near Pacifico plaza). Lots of restaurants on the main road and vicinity to choose from. Many are closed at this time of year since it's not peak season. We enjoyed going to Le Coq (nothing fancy but great Lebanese food - simple and fresh). We of course ate lots of fish on the BBQ. The sitting area outside is great however the table is a low and not very comfortable if you choose to eat your meals outside. Note: an additional bank fee was applied to our payment when we got there and we were not made aware of it beforehand. It was around $12/$15 US in addition to the wire transfer of $30 US we had to pay initially in Canada. It's much easier when property owners use PayPal or Visa for payment since no additional fees to the customers apply and no need to go to the bank and get a wire transfer. Pillows need to be replaced; they are flat as pancakes.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Dear Suzanne,
Many thanks for this constructive and straightforward review. It appears there are a few minor but nonetheless important things we need to re-discuss with our property managers Sonia and Hedson on site at Sombras. However allow me to comment on:
1. wire transfer charge at receiving bank in CR, for which we had informed you by email prior to you making such wire..there is always a charge applied by the receiving bank..in this case around $12 it seems. I would say a pleasant figure, considering your long-time trusted canadian bank taxed your account for $30.
2. Soaps and paper..it is the first time our property managers neglect this item..next time, if such a rare occurence manifests itself again, please advise them immediatly and they will send the maid over in an instant to supply these basic commodites - sorry this happened, I will call them today to make sure it was a one-time omission only.
3. Thank you for letting us know about the pillows, we will at the same time ask Hedson and Sonia to replace them - which they would gladly have done if you had requested of them at the time.
As for the whole of your review, again thank you, and very happy that your stay proved to be mostly a pleasant and comfortable experience. This is Costa Rica, not America..perfection is all around you in CR..and in a strange manner slowly makes its way to your soul, spirit and body.
Once again apologies for the pillows, and thank you for staying with us.
Sincerely, Paul
p.s..sorry again, forgot one item that you desired to be addressed..the ice makers. Well yes they are manual, 2 plastic molded gadgets in the freezer compartment that we had to bring from Canada because we could not find them in CR..the good old reliable manual type..finding a reliable automatic ice-making fridge in CR is a major challenge!

Fabulous Time at Sombras!

Review submitted: May 10, 2012   Date of arrival: March 26, 2012

My husband & I returned 2 weeks ago from a fabulous 5 week stay at Sombras. The condo is beautiful, & it's ground floor location just steps from the pool. The kitchen is very well stocked & as we ate in a number of times, cooking was made easy. The BBQ on the patio is awesome - wish we could find one like it at home, & we greatly appreciated the IPod dock. The beach is across the road & during our daily morning walks we were treated to countless monkey sightings, beautiful birds, iguanas - & lovely, friendly people. Coco is a very short walk either via the beach or road, & filled with fun little bars (Woody's was a late afternoon favourite for a beer & a plate of chili cheese fries!), restaurants (loved Andre's pizza place across from Woody's) & extremely well stocked grocery stores. Sitting at a table on the sand at Father Rooster's in Ocotal (a short cab ride) was another lunch favourite, & we enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Picante Restaurant in Ocotal. We did book a car with the help of Jeanne in the Sunset office for 2 weeks, & took ourselves to the Congo Canopy Trail to zipline (great fun!), to Palo Verde (highly recommend this boat trip down the river - so much wildlife to see), followed by a fabulous Costa Rican lunch. We visited Tamarindo (attempting the scenic route, which was a great adventure!). We also did a 2 night road trip to see the volcano at Arenal (beautiful!), & a night in Samara. While not necessary in Coco, the car gave us the freedom to go a little further afield & travel/see things at our own pace. I would like to say that the staff at Sunset were very helpful & pleasant, & dealing with Paul & Melissa was awesome. All our questions prior to booking were answered promptly & thoroughly, & we had the good fortune to have Melissa at Sombras during our entire stay. It was a pleasure getting to know her (& Sasha!), & she was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. I will say that it was a delight to have as long as we did as were able to thoroughly relax, get the feel of the place & settle in. When we returned from our road trip, my husband commented on how good it was to "get home"! Coco was a great location, the condo perfect, the wildlife fabulous to have always present, the staff at Sombras so wonderful, from the security guards at the gate to the grounds keepers, & the Costa Rican people amongst the warmest, friendliest people we have had the pleasure to meet. Highly recommend! Thank you again Paul et Melissa!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you to both of you for this wonderful review.
It was a great pleasure to help you & assist you during your stay with us in Sombras.
It does feel like home even though you are in vacation !
We are both very happy that you had a great time with us in Coco.
All our best wishes.

Quelles vacances idylliques dans votre coin enchanteur. Mélissa, merci pour ton accueil sympathique qui nous a immédiatement

Playa Del Coco est le “ fun”et à proximité ainsi que le village où les bons restaurants abondent et les kiosques à souvenirs sont
sympas. Les tours furent extra-ordinaires. Nos têtes et nos cœurs débordent de souvenirs de cette rencontre avec une nature
exceptionnelle. Merci à Paul et à toi d`avoir partagé la Pura Vida.

Amicalement Denise et Madeleine (601)
