Why The Owner chose Playa Langosta

We've traveled all over the world and once we discovered Costa Rica we knew that this was it. The beaches are beautiful, the people are kind and it's easy to get there from the States and Canada!

What makes this condo unique

Langosta is quiet neighborhood yet down the beach from everything that Tamarindo has to offer. Secluded beaches with great surfing. Don't miss a trip to Costa Rica!

The property was excellent and very safe, with lovely amenities like pool and rooftop terrace.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is lovely and ideally situated near the ocean and downtown Tamarindo. Amenities including the beautifully designed pool and rooftop terrace are wonderful for relaxing, reading or watching the sun rise or set over the Pacific. The kitchen and grill were great and fully stocked with the proper equipment for food preparation if we elected to stay in for the evening and the deck was a huge hit for dining. Everything worked well including the washer and dryer - which we used almost daily - and the toilets and showers were in good working order. Only concern our group had was the smell of mildew that permeated the condo. Good value and great location.

Perfect location and best amenities for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st time to Costa Rica and I relied mainly on reviews written on this site. We were not disappointed! We felt at home immediately. Such a comfortable unit, beautiful pool and the perfect location for us

Our family loves to surf and the river mouth break just a short walk down the street provided waves every day. It was nice to be in Langosta, it's quieter than Tamarindo and yet the close proximity of the 2 areas allowed us to enjoy the advantages of both. Scott and the rental agency were always available to answer questions and provide any information we needed. Looking forward to returning to this beautiful place again

Very Pleased with the Accommodations During Our Stay in Playa Langousta

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Costa Rica. Scott Garel, the owner of the condo, was available via email from the time we booked the condo, during our stay, and a follow up after our time at the condo was over. The condo was clean, well maintained and roomy for our group of four adults . The pool was fine with the exception of the fallen leaves which was understandable with the trees and shrubs that surrounded the pool. We enjoyed the walks to Tamarindo either on the road or by way of the beach - it was just the right distance to enjoy the sun, the ocean and get ready for a cool cerveza! We enjoyed the many restaurants, shops and bars located near the condo, as well as in Tamarindo. The people in the area were very friendly and very helpful. The property management people (I can't remember the two lovely ladies names) were very helpful and looked after our taxi service requirements while in Costa Rica. I would recommend this location and condo if you are wishing to stay in Playa Langousta. We all enjoyed our stay in Costa Rica - it is a beautiful country and we look forward to revisiting in the near future. Thank you Scott!

Fantastic location and five star service!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience we had in Costa Rica. And a large part of this was due to this great property we were fortunate enough to have at our disposal for the week. Scott was so accommodating from the very start, answering questions about the location and property itself, to providing a very comprehensive list of suggested activities, restaurants and tour operators. Having the property manager (RPM) literally steps away from the property was a huge advantage and made our check in process smooth and easy. The gate guards and cleaners were pleasant and helpful. During our stay, a tree was being taken down by the pool. As a result, RPM paid the entrance fee to the Playa Langosta beach club (which is a fabulous MUST do) for our entire group of eight. Not only that, but we had access to one of the cabanas for the entire day. This was a fun and restful way to wrap up our holiday. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Hi Jim, thanks for the review. We are really close to the sand and the walk to a good swim spot has to be at least 5 minutes!

Great property - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at Villas Langosta. A nice property with a beautiful pool, in a great location. A short walk to the beach access, and only two blocks to a great restaurant (Calla Luna) with many gluten free options and a nice spa. The owner was really nice, and great to work with. We've visited Tamarindo several times, we'll be staying in Langosta from now on!
