Great Vacation Again!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for the month of February this year after spending 2 weeks in the same location last year. We came back to the same location (Sombras) again because we had such a good time last year. Melissa was a great host once again and was always available to help if needed. Great location, great weather, and great people in Coco and the surrounding area. Thanks for everything Melissa and Paul. Our family had a great time. See you again next February!

Great Location! Very Nice Condo!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our month long stay in Costa Rica. This past January/February was our first visit to CR and we were very happy that we were so close to the beach and to town. Sombras is a quiet, well kept, guarded community about a 5 minute walk to Coco Beach and a 10 minute walk to the town Playas del Coco. The staff are very courteous and friendly...the guard staff at the entrance and the maintenance people tidying/cleaning the gardens and the pool. There are numerous restaurants and shops in town. The local merchants are friendly and understand English.....lots of English speaking tourists. There is a well stocked mini market about a 2 minute walk up the street from the condo. Larger grocery stores are in town, which are within walking distance, albeit you may want to take cab home at a very reasonable rate.

Our condo unit 601 was nicely decorated, well appointed and in great condition. Everything worked! The blender especially got a good workout, and we loved having the BBQ which we used a lot. (Speaking to people in another unit, they weren't as fortunate.) Location of this unit is right off the pool deck. Spent all of our time outdoors as the weather was phenomenal. Loved sitting out on our patio. The patio furniture was lovely, but not real practical for eating outdoors or for leisurely relaxation. The wooden pool chairs look awesome but can be very uncomfortable after awhile. Cushions of a sort would be nice at Sombras. There are big shade trees around the pool, which is wonderful with the heat, but the pool tends to be a bit cooler because of it.

Melissa is an especially great host, attentive, very friendly and super in providing us with lots of local information. Explained what was around us as far as grocery stores, restaurants, beaches, tours, etc. A couple times we needed something, and she was right on top of it.

Thank you for a great first vacation in Costa Rica. We would love to come back again.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

How would you like to wake up every morning to beautiful sunshine & a glistening pool right outside your door?! Unit 601 Sombras in Coco Beach, Costa Rica offers that & much more! A beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo with everything you need for a fabulous stay! Since we enjoy doing most of our own cooking, it was especially nice to have a well stocked kitchen - lots of dishes, pots & pans & every gadget you can think of. Plus, we used the barbeque almost every night.

Sombras itself is a very safe place to stay, with 24/7 security & very friendly neighbours, most of who are Canadians. It's only a 5 minute walk to a great beach where you never feel crowded, even throughout Christmas & New Year's. Downtown Coco is also a 10 minute walk in the opposite direction, where you will find every kind of restaurant you can imagine & shopping galore. You can find everything you need here! The local merchants are very friendly & most can speak exceptional English.

My husband & I are looking forward to our next visit, which will be our 4th trip to Sombras! Thank you Melissa for all you did to help make our stay the best ever! Until we meet again,

Pura Vida,

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was just perfect. We stayed there for almost 2 weeks in the New Year week 2015/2016. Mélissa and Paul were very helpful and supportive from the very beginning of our booking until we checked out.

The condo itself is beautiful, very spacious and well maintained. It is located within a gated community; this community is a very quiet place although it is very close to the beach of Coco. Our kids (11 and 13) loved the pool and the beach. The whole community area is extremely well-kept.

We did not rent a car (unless we went on a 2-day-trip to Palo Verde and to Arenal). As recommended by Paul, we were fine by using taxis to go to the supermarket (a bit far to walk for us) and to go to the beaches nearby (Playa Ocotal and Playa Hermosa).

Generally, Coco (probably the whole region) is quite an expensive area, supermarkets and restaurants are to some extent even more expensive than Europe (!) - this was surprising to us. From time to time we doubted if a beach bar still is good value for the money when you pay 25 USD for 2 bottles of beer and 2 glasses coke…

However, we really enjoyed our stay. We can highly recommend this condo, the gated community and the care of Mélissa and Paul.

Wonderful Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful 3 week vacation at Sombras in Costa Rica. I would recommend this Gated community very highly. The grounds were very well maintained and the staff very friendly. Our manager Mellissa was just fantastic. She was very helpful in giving us ideas for restaurants, tours, grocery stores etc. We walked out of our sliding door to a very beautiful and peaceful pool with lots of sun and shade. It was so nice to sit out at night with a glass of wine beside the pool. We were walking distance to all restaurants which was a big plus and only minutes to the beach. We walked an hour and a half every morning on the beach. Lots of Canadians there as well. The condo itself could not have been nicer. Very well decorated and had everything we needed. From dish washer, washer and dryer to blender for making wonderful drinks. Probably one of the best vacations we have had down south.

Lovely Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Sombras with friends for the month of February. The condo is very nice, well maintained, and the kitchen is very well equipped. The internet access was good. The pool area is lovely and being on the main floor the patio is pretty much pool side. Each unit has its own very good BBQ on the patio which we found convenient. The beach is close, only a 5 minute walk and the downtown area is less than 10 minutes away. The main grocery stores are a bit further, perhaps 1 1/2 to 2 kilometers but we walked back and forth on an almost daily basis. There is a much smaller grocery store very near by and it was handy for heavier items or things we had forgotten. There are many great restaurants in the area if you don't fell like cooking but if you do want to cook the kitchen has everything you might need. I only wish the living room furniture had been a bit more comfortable. Perfectly functional but not necessarily comfortable. However, we didn't spend that much time in the living room so it wasn't a big problem. Definitely would recommend this condo.
