Recent Playa Langosta reviews

  • Beautiful, spacious house in a great location

    "The house is comfortable, spacious and beautiful! It was a great place to relax in the evening by the pool or in the "backyard" patio after a busy day of activities. Just a quick walk to the beach. Great to walk the beach to Tamarindo at low tide (or spend hours exploring the tide pools). Just a $5 cab ride to/from Tamarindo. Maria, the property manager, was helpful with recommendations for surf lessons and restaurants. My daughters loved Princess (or Prince?), the resident cat! We enjoyed surf lessons, scuba diving, snorkeling, boogie boarding, zip lining and lots of amazing food in the Tamarindo restaurants. I've already recommended this home to friends who are planning to visit Costa Rica!"

  • Slice of heaven

    "We recently returned from our stay at Naxos in Playa Langosta. The condo had everything we needed and the views were spectacular. The condo itself was very nicely decorated, the beds were comfortable and we always felt very safe in the gated condo. The pool area is gorgeous and most of the time we had the entire area to ourselves. We used the BBQ on many occasions and it worked wonderfully. This condo is a very short walk to the beach or if you take another 5 minutes past Barcelo Langosta there is a really beautiful sandy beach where you can spend the day watching the surfers and swim. We never walked to town as we had my father with us who had bad knees but it would not have been difficult along the beach at all. It's just a $5 taxi ride to Tamarindo and taxis are everywhere so we never had any problems getting a taxi when we needed it. I corresponded with Donna many times prior to our arrival and she was always very helpful and informative. If you're looking for a place that is clean, comfortable, safe and relaxing look no further."

  • Almost Exceptional - 5 stars with reservations

    "I stayed at Casa Tropical during the Christmas week of 2014. The place has great walking proximity (< 1/4 mile) to two different beaches and is a bit longer walk to Tamarindo (~ 1 mile) which has great beaches as well. I've been to Costa Rica almost a dozen times (and more than 35 countries) and had a bit of sticker shock from this visit as it seems there is wide spread inflation and costs are the same as Miami. However, this house was very reasonable to rent in the busiest time of year. Casa Tropical is a short walk to the Barcelo resort beach which is West facing and has great sunset. We met another family that travels to Guanacaste for 10 consecutive years. The beach itself is a bit small. On the other side is the North facing Capitan Suizo beach. Capitan Suizo is a very economical and lovely resort. There was a bunch of surfing at both beaches. Casa Tropical's internet was upgraded and had no problems. The beds were comfortable. The staff / property managers were very attentive. We had a power outage on Christmas eve and the staff were very helpful in getting back on line though their offices were closed. Throughout the stay the staff was available via email. Why wasn't the place exceptional? The house is not that big. There is no indoor dining table. It really can't sleep 4 adults unless one person sleeps on the couch or unless the 4 adults are all couples. This situation could be far better solved if there was a pullout couch instead of a sectional there. Also, the master bedroom is large and has a sitting bench, but it could be far better if that bench was replaced with a desk for people like ourselves who need a place to sit inside the house and answer emails. The only table is outside and the heat was 90 degrees. Though the outside table is covered, at certain times of day the sun can be pretty bad. The owners may want to add a tarp to provide more shelter from the sun. Most of the really great places we've visited also realize that their visitors are tourists and have some sort of book of places to visit available so we don't have to rely on travel agencies. I give 5 stars with reservations."

  • A little slice of heaven in Costa Rica!

    "I just returned from a wonderful vacation at Casablanca in Langosta. This condo is perfect. The kitchen is nice and open to the dining and living areas. There are 2 nice bedrooms downstairs and a great loft bedroom upstairs with a half bath. The pool is beautiful. We saw 2 giant green parrots, monkeys and iguanas! The location is perfect. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo but still close enough to walk to restaurants and bars. And of course you are right across the beach from the beach! Suzanne is a great tour guide also. I would highly recommend this villa!"
