Recent Playa Conchal reviews

  • Pure Paradise!!!

    "We were two families looking for a quick getaway from our own vacation rental condo in Jaco, Costa Rica. The condo is beautifully decorated and very spacious. This place was paradise -- with beautiful views of the golf course, wild life and amazing sunsets. The property has access to the beach club, which boasts the largest swimming pool in Central America. There are also fun activities by the pool for kids: ping pong, pool table, etc. Also, there is a convenient free shuttle from the condo to the beach. On the beach we found a 60 minute massage for only $20 look for "Massage by Gigi" on TripAdvisor -- what a deal! The little town next to the resort is a three minute drive from the property and had some amazing seafood at reasonable prices. One last item, we always felt safe as the property is in a gated community with 24/7 security. We highly recommend a visit to Playa Conchal and have already been recommending this place to our friends. Thanks Ron, for all your help, we can't wait to come back!"

  • Spectacular!

    "We have stayed in many Villas all over Costa Rica and all I can say is, we were very impressed with Villa Catalina. The Villa itself, it's location, the views and the beach club all make this an amazing place for your next visit. Don't think twice this is worth every penny, we will definitely be returning soon."

  • Awesome Costa Rica Stay!!

    "My family was thrown into turmoil when our vacation rental in another nearby beach community didn't work out. We scoured VRBO and this one turned up! Sandra was wonderful to work with and was VERY attentive to getting us in touch with the property manager to arrange everything on such short notice. We were thrilled to learn it was on such a beautiful beach and offered privacy and serenity. Initially we were surprised how "off the beaten path" it was (you'd definitely want a car), but it turned out to be a GOOD thing..we stocked up in the nearby town for groceries, made our breakfasts and headed out for our lunches and dinners. We were exhausted by the time we returned at 8pm and just wanted a nice peaceful A/C place to hang out! It was luxurious! The Wi-fi worked great, the community was gated, the granite countertops and hot water were both bonuses to us based on our other accommodations! I'm an avid walker and I walked the beach every morning. It's a 10 minute walk down a charming dirt road, and on the way I saw a family of monkeys, roosters, and at the end is a cool local restaurant that services that end of Playa Conchal. The only development on Playa Conchal is the Westin, so you know it has to be a special beach!! I walked 1 hour north on the beach and had to turn around because I was tired! That never happens!! The beds and linens were super comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. We were able to cook and season our freshly caught fish for dinner one night! The pool was also great; it was refreshing with a fabulous view. We would definitely (and probably will!) stay again. Besides Playa Conchal, we visited Tamarindo, a fun town 25 minutes to the south, and played in the waves at Playa Flamingo, 20 minutes to the north. We also went to a nearby beach Playa Mina to look for nesting sea turtles at night. My daughter and I rode horses on the beach and it was arranged at that local little restaurant. Our trip couldn't have been better!"

  • 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!"
