Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • Amazing place to stay-with the best pool!

    "Our family of 4 stayed at this beautiful property for 10 days. The pool was absolutely fantastic and exceeded our expectations in size and cleanliness. Mike, the thoughtful owner, came by every morning before 6 to clean the pool. The gardens surrounding the home were beautiful and made it very private! The beach was one of the best we have ever been to. Perfect for both children and avid surfers. It was also nice to be away from the more crowded Tamarindo beach. There were amazing dining options close and we also prepared our own meals. We would definitely stay here again!!!!"

  • Casa Mandarina and Amigo Realty Top Notch!

    "We are terribly sad to see this week come to an end. There is so much left to do so we must plan our next visit. I think Casa Mandarina would be an excellent place for a crowd. Marcia is an amazing cook! Authentic Costa Rican cuisine everyday, breakfast lunch dinner, when we weren't out on the best adventures, organized by Marjolet! Many thanks to Marjolet for getting us on personalized tours with Don Grant, the owner of Get Lost In Costa Rica (# 1 in Trip Advisor for Costa Rica). Now that we have been here, our next trip will be even better! Turtle tour, River Tour, Zip lining, horseback riding, waterslide, mud bath, swim in natural hot springs heated by volcano, and endless fun and relaxation at Casa Mandarina and Playa Grande beach! This is our last day. After our breakfast, we walked the beach and saw where a giant Leatherback turtle came ashore over night to nest and return to the sea. Then noticed a baby Leatherback trying to make its way to sea. What an experience for the kids and us, right out the back door of Casa Mandarina! Thanks Nova, Marjolet, Marcia and Oscar! Barton Family, North Carolina USA"

  • Amazing secluded beach getaway with all the comforts of home!

    "My husband and I were so thrilled that casa que pasa was available for our last minute vacation. We needed a week of rest and relaxation on a beach - and we got that and much more! The house is beautiful, with a fantastic kitchen which offers an amazing view of the jungle as you cook. Everything was clean and bright, and the bed was super comfortable. The balcony overlooking the walk to the beach is a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, evening wine, and to spot the monkey family. We decided to try surfing, so we rented a few boards from a surf school down the road. The 1 min walk to the beach made it extremely convenient for us to go surfing 2 times a day. The beach is fantastic for beginner surfers - no rocks or coral, easy waves (and some harder ones if you're an expert). After our morning surf we would walk to the estuary to get a boat ride into Tamarindo (for $1). We'd head home, have a nap, surf again, and then head out to one of the local restaurants within walking distance. Casa Que Pasa has everything - the comforts of home, beach, jungle, restaurants, and a little grocery store all within walking distance. In short, it was a perfect getaway and we can't wait to return!"

  • Wonderful Beach House Getaway

    "We rented Casa Velas for most of January 2015 and had a wonderful time. The perfect beach house. While not lavish it provided us with a wonderful place to enjoy the most wonderful Costa Rica beach, Playa Grande. We were three couples that enjoyed the best of outdoor living while staying there. For information the pool is spectacular and wonderfully maintained by Luis. Dimensions of the pool are 14 feet X 29 feet. The shallow end is 3 feet deep going to about 4 feet deep. Anna did a wonderful job of pampering us with house details on a very regular basis and cooking the most wonderful Costa Rica meals imaginable. She is a gem! We can reiterate all of the other reviews as being very accurate. Pura Vida!!"
