  • Great Stay.

    "We had a great experience during our three day stay here! Fabulous and prompt service, the place was clean and spacious and the pool, while shallow, was private and refreshing! It was a quick walk into town, the many restaurants and the beach."

  • Surfer's Paradise

    "I just got home from my 10 day stay at Casa Marina and had a wonderful time. I went with my wife, our 1 year old daughter, and my sister and her boyfriend. Marina arranged our airport transportation since we didn't want to rent a car. The driver had an nice van with A/C and a cooler full of cold drinks for the hour ride to Playa Grande. He even let us stop at the store on the way to stock up on groceries. Marina greeted us at the property and gave us the quick tour. The two rooms are very nice, clean, and spacious. The pool and the yard are beautiful. Within about 2 hours we were completely settled. Half our group was relaxing by the pool and the other half were sitting on cheaply rented longboards ($100ea for the 10 day stay from a local surf camp) catching perfect warm water waves and watching the sun set over the Pacific. Over the next 10 days we surfed twice a day, every day. The beach is literally a 100 or maybe 150 yard walk at the most. Their pool is warm because it has a dark bottom and absorbs heat from the sun. I've been in other pools in Costa Rica and Nicaragua with white bottoms that are too cold to hang out in. The restaurants close by in Palm Beach Estates (all less than a 5 minute walk) were all very good. The convenience/grocery store (also less than 5 minutes) has EVERYTHING at totally reasonable prices. We took a $20 round trip cab ride into Playa Grande for dinner 2 other nights. Sunday Night Sushi at one of them was excellent. All in all, we had a wonderful time at Casa Marina. I don't think there's a better "bang for the buck" place to stay in Playa Grande. If you're looking for a good place to stay on a surf trip, you've found it. We didn't do any of the other tours (estuary tour, ziplines, white water rafting, volcano tours, etc) but I've heard they're all fun as well. We basically woke up at sunrise, surfed for 2-3 hours, relaxed by the pool the rest of the day and surfed again 2-3 hours until the sun set and started getting dark. We'll definitely be going back!"

  • Live the Pura Vida

    "This condo truly is a gem! Centrally located on the pacific side of Península de Nicoya. Everything is done just right. You can tell right away coming up the driveway from the front gate that the property is very well maintained and secure. The condo itself is is big, with three bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen, living room and a dining room. There is a lot of room for a big family or a group of friends. My Girlfriend and I were totally blown away when we opened the front door to find that we had landed in such a beautiful home. We couldn't believe how nice it was and the fact that we were going to be using it as our base of operations for fun and adventure in the Península de Nicoya really set the theme for a perfect vacation in this wonderful country. We had so much fun spotting wildlife like Howler Monkeys, tropical birds and a dazzling array of butterflies. We often had the wide open beaches to ourselves and to top it off when we did seek out company the people of Costa Rica and even the tourista's were the best! We loved our time in Costa Rica and highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle/bustle and enjoy the real Costa Rica."
