Recent Playa Conchal reviews
Great vacation destination for all ages
"We visited Costa Rica in June and had the pleasure to stay at this beautiful spacious condo at Reserva Conchal. The views from the condo over the golf course and ocean are simply breathtaking. The condo offers everything one can wish for, from the modern full kitchen, to the washer/dryer,to the 2 full bathrooms, and the free WiFi, just to name a few. The condo is decorated beautifully and is very clean.
Our kids are young adults, and they just loved it! There are so many things to do at the Playa Conchal Beach Club; from kayaking and stand-up paddle-boarding, to workouts in the state-of-the-art Beach Club Gym; or one can simply relax at the Beach Club pool, or the white sand beach.
There are many beautiful beaches in the area, but Playa Conchal must be one of Costa Rica's most beautiful.
We also went to Monteverde for the best zip lining ever, did whitewater rafting and deep sea fishing. Ask the owner for Dee's information; he was the best tour guide one could have.
Our favorite restaurants were the Beach Club at Playa Conchal (the staff there was really nice), Papaya (has wonderful Poke and a filet mignon that melts in your mouth) and Sodalito Italiano (best Italian food outside of Italy) in Brasalito. We also enjoyed Soda Brasalito, which has a delicious lobster and wonderful red snapper; everything was very fresh.
We highly recommend this property and would come back in a heart beat.
The owner is delightful and very easy to work with; thank you so much for everything, Tom!

"Simply beautiful!! Obviously this applies to much in Costa Rica but this condo is just that - simply beautiful. The view is breathtaking !!! The restaurant within the complex (about a 30 second walk from the condo) proved to be excellent and we probably ate almost half of our meals there. The beaches and the area are simply beautiful!! We have stayed here our last 3 trips to CR, so that attests to how much we like it. Undoubtedly the most beautiful beaches and views I've ever seen. This past trip we visited a wider variety of beaches - Pirates, Grande, and Tamarindo. They are great but it's hard to beat Conchal. Extremely private and peaceful - you can be around people only when you want to be around people - like you have the beach all to yourself! We were very impressed with the level of security - within the complex, on the beaches, and in the local towns (Brasilito and Conchal). While security officers were never intrusive and definitely in the background, it added to our peace and contentment to know they were always close. If you want nightlife, parties, people, traffic, and commercialization, this is probably not your place. If you want natural beauty, the most beautiful uncrowded beaches in the world, nature, extremely private and peaceful settings, a condo view and constant other views that could be on postcards, privacy, serenity, and the best "bang for your buck" I've ever found, then this is as good as it gets. We already plan to return next year!"

"This was my family's 2nd time back to Costa Rica. We stayed one week at this fabulous condo and then stayed at the Westin hotel for the 2nd week with my 18 year old son's friends and their parents. We were sad to leave this condo after the first week of our trip! It was so comfortable and spacious--all 5 of us had plenty of room to spread out and have our own privacy. The condo was very tastefully decorated and, as the other reviewers have noted, the beds were very comfortable! There wasn't anything that the condo was lacking. Loved the 2-story aspect to the condo---it felt like a big house and allowed for us to sleep peacefully without being right on top of each other. Melissa was great and very helpful. We ended up getting a rental car which we recommend if you want to go into town to the different restaurants around. It was just easier and faster than waiting for the shuttle, which was not very reliable! We loved having access to the Beach Club---when we moved to the Westin and lost that "privilege" we realized what a valuable asset that was as part of our package! The Beach Club was about a mile walk from the condo unit and my family loved to do the walk to the beach and back every day...it felt good and healthy to be active and it was a nice walk past Howler monkeys and all sorts of birds and butterflies! Our stay in Costa Rica was extremely memorable due to the beauty and convenience of this great condo! The owners, the Nelsons, were very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions that we had! Great views, beautiful interior! We cannot wait to come back to this property!"

Beautiful condo, great view, comfortable and stylish furnishings, great location
"The condo itself was beautiful and spacious yet comfortable for a family of 6 (4 teenage boys) - perfect. Loved sunrise and sunset on the deck surrounded by the sounds of birds and monkeys as we looked over the golf course to the ocean and Catalina Rock. Short walk to the pool/beach (or you can take a short shuttle). The condo pool/Beach Club is stunning and there are 2 well equipped workout facilities on premise, complimentary kayak and paddle boards, as well as a few bikes for use. We did not rent a car and taxis that accommodate 6 are relatively expensive, so we ate at Westin Resort restaurants a few times (very good), cooked in (we had concierge deliver a few groceries to wait for us upon arrival, and then went to a supermarket early in the week for the bigger shop) and then offsite for a few dinners (condo has some recommended dining options in a folder) The homeowners were a pleasure to work with and even had a local friend meet us upon arrival with great advice. The concierge for the condos receives mixed reviews - they were friendly, but we did not always receive consistent information from them, the phone went unanswered a few times, and we had transportation issues a couple of times. We used one of the groups on the beach to arrange our excursions rather than the concierge: volcano/canopy tour, catamaran/snorkeling, ATV on beach, horseback on beach, jet skis and surfing in Tamarindo. This condo was the perfect home base to be able to enjoy all these wonderful activities in Costa Rica. We loved our week, and I highly recommend this particular condo for your stay."
