Recent Playa Conchal reviews

  • Awesome family vacation at Reserva Conchal

    "Our family of 5 (including 3 pre-teens) spent a fun and relaxing week thanks to our stay in this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our new home away from home and its deluxe amenities. We've stayed in many rental condos over the years, and this one is at the top of the list for decor, view, and overall comfort. My favorite perch was in the upstairs master bedroom, enjoying the elevated ocean view. I am picky about mattresses, and am pleased to report that the mattresses in this condo are top quality and very comfortable. We did not have a rental car during our stay, but were able to get around the area reasonably well with the on-property shuttles and occasional taxis. One huge bonus with renting this property is the inclusion of the services of a private concierge. I didn't realize how valuable this would be until I got there. Melissa arranged some key transportation, including a very early morning airport transfer, and several dinner reservations. She patiently answered a lot of questions. We had some hit-and-miss interactions with getting help from the Reserva Conchal office staff, but Melissa came through 100 percent, and I'm thankful for her assistance. We hope we can return to this lovely home soon!"

  • Beautiful Condo & Great Host

    "5 adults and 2 young children spent a week in this condo and the accommodations were superb. We enjoyed the ocean view, the nature right outside our door, and the amenities of the resort. The owner went beyond what we expected in helping us get comfortable and was available for assistance. The free shuttles to the pool & ocean area were easy to arrange through the concierge. In all activities we did, inside & outside the resort, the service was superb. I'd highly recommend this condo & resort to anyone looking for the comfort of a home while on vacation."

  • Phenomenal Villa for anyone!!

    "My husband and I recently visited Costa Rica and stayed at this BEAUTIFUL villa. We have never stayed in anything this nice before, not even on our honeymoon. The villa is very spacious, yet the layout is perfect and has that "homey" feel to it. Our favorite part about the villa was the infinity pool. It was so nice to have our private pool when we didn't feel like going to the public one or the beach. The Villa has surround sound speakers so you can plug in a phone and play music throughout the house which is awesome. The beds were extremely comfortable because they had memory foam mattresses (at least the master bedroom did). We loved having a kitchen so we could cook meals on days that we didn't feel like dining out. The property is extremely clean and there is a cleaning lady that comes every other day. The concierge (property managers) were very helpful, they helped book our tours and get us taxis when we went into town. We chose the sunset cruise and the water rafting tours which both exceeded our expectations. The property is located in a gated community which is on the same grounds as the Westin hotel, so you have access to the beach, pools and restaurants. There is a free shuttle that can take you to the beach or you can enjoy a nice 2 mile walk down to these amenities. The location is perfect, close to other beaches such as playa avellanas and playa grande which are great for surfing and it is about 15 minutes from Tamarindo which has shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Just past flamingo beach there is a place called Las Catalinas which is a beautiful outdoor restaurant with swings, hammocks, couches, lawn chairs, corn hole and they serve great cocktails and food. Another place we enjoyed for lunch was Lolas, which was located on playa avellanas. I enjoyed a few beers and read my book in a hammock while watching my husband surf. So relaxing! I would recommend this property to anyone! My husband and I enjoyed our alone time and having this place to ourselves,however we both agreed that it would have been great to have a few other couples with us b/c it was spacious enough for a big group.We hope to get the chance to come back to this beautiful villa again!"

  • Perfect family destination and accommodations

    "We spent a wonderful 12 days here, as a family of four with two small ages (2.5 and 4.5). The condo is very spacious, and the master bedroom was a luxury for my husband and me. Very clean & modern. All the amenities that make life easier with small kids were here: washer/dryer, full kitchen, 2 full baths (with bathtub), WiFi, lots of space. The kids loved it, and there was a lot to do: the smaller infinity pool of the condo area; the larger pool (with kid areas) in the beach club; the largest pool in the hotel area; the Playa Conchal beach. All of this was very kid friendly. We also rented a car and visited several nearby beaches: Playa Avellanas, Playa Ocotol, Playa Negra. We did the Palo Verde River tour, and the kids got to feed monkeys that came right onto our boat, plus see crocodiles, followed by an amazing typical Costa Rican meal prepared at a family's home. We also went to Arenal Volcano and stayed one night at Tabacon Hot Springs and visited the Denaus Ecological Sanctuary, where we saw a beautiful butterfly garden, different types of frogs, and other wildlife. It's very safe to travel here, and the country has made a major effort to ensure that the population speaks English. We were so impressed with the high levels of English fluency everywhere we went. The restaurants all catered well to kids, too (including the Beach Club). Our kids are finicky eaters, but we were pleased to find chicken fingers and french fries nearly everywhere we went. And some restaurants even had small indoor kid play areas where the kids were very entertained! The condo was a perfect "home base" for us as we pursued our adventures. The people at the resort (and really, everywhere we went) are friendly and warm. The roads have greatly improved since we were last here 5 years ago, and we had no trouble driving around (although still recommend renting a 4x4). We have now been here three times: once for our honeymoon, once as a married couple when I was pregnant with our first, and now once with 2 small kids. Each time we've immensely enjoyed it, and I believe it has something for everyone. Even teenagers would enjoy the beaches, eco-activities, and fun restaurants and towns. Also, staying at the condo allows the luxury of NOT having to deal with people who are on vacation just to do an all-inclusive booze/food binge. (Actually, I didn't see those types at the hotel resort area either!) In sum, highly recommend for all ages, including for families w/ small kids!!"
