Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • Excellent Stay!

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Very comfortable and had most amenities that we needed. Nir was so helpful and really nice. When we had a problem with the refrigerator he had it fixed as soon as possible and supplied us with a cooler until it was fixed. It was just a short walk to the beautiful beach and the pool was refreshing when we were at the house. This was our first time in Costa Rica and we had an awesome vacation. I would highly recommend it! An overall great experience and we would stay here again when we return."

  • Best vacation home ever

    "9 of us went to Playa Grande for 9 days. 5 of them being teenagers. Everyone loved everything about this house. We can not wait to go back. We try to go on a different vacation every year, but this one will certainly be a repeat. The owner is east to work with and the caretakers are great. The waves were only a 3 minute walk for all of our surfers and boogey boarders. Next door is a great restaurant Seven and a small convenience store that has everything you could possibly need."

  • 50th wedding anniversary with whole family

    "What a wonderful week we had. Your place was just marvelous. One never really knows what it will turn out to be until on site and we were just ecstatic once in the house and saw all of the accommodations. It seemed to us that you have the best place in Playa Grande in the facility known as Villa Olivia!!!!!!! We could not have asked for anything better. The staff were wonderful, gracious, helpful, courteous, and very attentive. Kim was a fabulous cook, every evening meal. We participated in a number of interesting activities but enjoyed the beach, the waves, and the view from the hammocks, lounge chairs, and benches under the trees at your place the most!!! Thank you for your responsiveness throughout the reservation process."

  • Look No Further for the Perfect Beach Vacation!

    "We stayed at Casa del Mar, their house next door, two years ago, and we just knew we had to come back to Playa Grande. This time, we decided to try Casa Syl Mar. We knew that it would have the same great view, the same wonderful staff, and the same excellent hosts, so we didn't think we would have any real surprises. But, of course, we were pleasantly surprised to see just how beautiful this house is. I think it might be the prettiest house on the beach. You really can't go wrong with this place. Playa Grande is a great place if you like things a little quiet and love the outdoors. Boogie boarding and surfing here are just amazing (we took lessons from Doug and Kieley at Frijoles Locos) because of the consistent breaks. We also highly recommend doing the Estuary Tour through Jonathon at the Hotel Las Tortugas. This is a canoe trip into the salt water estuary where we saw hundreds of birds, crocodiles, and got a great close-up view of a troop of howler monkeys. Avoid the smelly, noisy motor boats. You won't see nearly as much wildlife (and they are, technically, illegal anyway). Ask about the fresh fish truck too! Gabriela helped us get some wonderful fish delivered right to us. Fantastic! Seriously, you just don't need to keep looking. I promise you won't regret staying here!"
