Recent Playa Potrero reviews

  • Casa Cerca del Mar

    "Overall this place was in a good location & having a pool to ourselves was fantastic! Benito the gardener & Silvia the cleaning lady were excellent & very helpful & Saioa, the manager was very helpful with everything we asked of getting! The bedrooms were comfortable & having our own bathrooms was great. The only complaint; the pool loungers & chairs need cushions. We found most of the chairs were uncomfortable. Tom was extremely easy to deal with & answered all enquiries quickly. All in all, 2 weeks flew by & we're all sorry to be going home to the cold."

  • The Perfect Beach Vacation

    "Wow. We (a party of 6) just returned from an amazing stay at Mel's wonderful beach front home. The place itself is an classic beach house, with four bedrooms, and lots of space for lounging. The house was clean (spotless really), well stocked with towels, linens, etc., and had a full kitchen. Mel gave us an amazing itinerary: we had a blast visiting the beaches at Conchal and Tamarindo (not to mention the beach in front of the house!), snorkeling, kayaking, building bonfires, and napping in the hammock. Perla and Cody took wonderful care of us. Perla is an amazing cook, and prepared a variety of original and by-request dishes for us. We also enjoyed the Beach House restaurant and bar, a few steps down the beach. The house is a very short drive from a bunch of other fun excursions and towns as well. Our only complaint is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy everything the place had to offer!"

  • Beautiful villa with magnificent views

    "We had a wonderful stay and time at Phyllis' beautiful home, villa celeste in playa Potrero. The house is equipped with everything you can possibly need, but the best part for us was the master bedroom with views overlooking the pacific. We also loved the shower/tub, pool and air temperatured jacuzzi. I would highly recommend asking how the dish washer is operated when checking in, as it temperamental. This will save you time figuring it out. Also, we would highly recommend renting a car to drive around to the best beaches, which are plentiful but not close enough to walk to from the Vila (in our opinion). We loved playa conchal, brasilito, flamingo and avellanas. There is also plenty of adventure offered in Costa Rica like surfing, hiking near the volcanos, zip-lining, horse back riding, tubing, sailing & snorkeling and taking a boat ride through the jungle. Make sure you take advantage of all of these. There are also many great restaurants in and near the town, as well as supermarkets. Jack, the builder of the villa also lives on the premise, so you can also ask him for advice anytime. He's a hoot! If you are a light sleeper, I suggest bringing ear plugs as there are some roosters and dogs, that tend to create their own orchestra during the night and early morning. All in all, we loved our stay here and even stayed longer than originally planned. We would highly recommend it."

  • Absolutely awesome!!!

    "We stayed at Mike & Irmas for eight days and it was everything we asked for and more. First of all we arrived a day early and they went out of their way to accommodate us. The property is absolutely fantastic, we stayed at the penthouse. The beds are super comfortable and the shower/jet tub bath fantastic with awesome views. Mikes breakfast is way better than most hotels we stayed at and he serves it with love. We loved our conversations with him every morning and hugging out for dinner as well. The beach doesn't have a lot of people and we highly enjoyed our walks and swimming there. One of the most relaxing places we've been. The water is calm and safe for swimming not too many waves. We can't say enough about Mike and Irma as we consider them now friends. Mike looked out for us giving us good advice with tours and leading a combo tour for us and making it extra fun. This is our home away from home in CR and we are already planning our next vacation there. Thank you Mike and Irma for everything we will see you again soon. Pura Vida!!!"
