What a wonderful place for my family! The setting, staff, and warm reception made this vacation one of our best. All of the recommendations for eating and playing were perfect for adults and children. Margie, the concierge, was so helpful. We recommend having the cook provide at least one meal for you while you are there. Her chicken and rice was the best! If you follow Margie's advice, you will have a magical time. "Pura Vida "

pure paradise at beach front home

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a wonderful house in an amazing location

To me this has to be the best beach house in the area the position right on the pacific beach of playa grande really cannot be beaten

the house is well appointed with everything you could want a great open plan feel which is great for entertaining

the kitchen again has everything you could possibly want and has a real Costa Rican feel

one thing we love about this house is that it is not your sterile corporate kind of house you really do feel comfortable and it has a feel of being somewhere different

This house is great for larger groups or families it really is very safe having its own large private garden and pool which makes it easy for the adults to watch the kids, the garden is kept clean and tidy and the pool cleaned daily by Oscar the caretaker who we found to be great and helped us in any way he could if we had any requests, including repairing our bike punctures

The large bedrooms upstairs are bright and airy and two lead onto a huge terrace (its 40ft x 8ft) i know i measured it) looking over the pool and facing the pacific ocean which is amazing for a early evening cocktail while watching some truly amazing sunsets

The lounge is very comfortable with two large sofas and a large futon again its great to all sit around socializing and chatting about the day in paradise or watch tv or listen to CD’s. There is also a very large selection of books on offer (just leave on in return) and chess and draughts (checkers)

There is a large picnic table outside which is great for sitting around and having food it seats twelve which again adds to the feel of inclusion the same inside the house a large central dining table which can be used but to be honest we spent most of our time outside enjoying the gardens and pool

All four of the bedrooms are great with and ensuites newly decorated prior to our arrival each room is bright and airy especially the master all have very high ceiling adding to the sense of space

There is a daily maid service which is great and this was done by Marcia, Oscars wife who is a wonderful lady who is extremely friendly. Its true to say that everyone we met associated with casa dorado made our vacation a truly friendly experience.

The management for the house are great on call for everything we asked for and could not be more accommodating

Would we stay here again YOU BET without a doubt it’s an amazing house exceptional position on the beach just wonderful

Almost Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at Casa Dorado for 8 nights and let me tell you. This house is close to perfect. The location is great...steps from the beach...Glorious, beautiful, kid friendly Playa Grande. We have traveled to many areas in Costa Rica and Playa Grande is still out favorite beach. The waves are just right, not to big and not to small. The riptide is very manageable for everyone. And the sunsets, well they truly do speak for themselves. The best thing about the beach are the tides. The difference between high and low tide is an amazing 300 feet!! Its hard packed sand so its great for long walks down to the rocks and tide pools. The location of the house is great. Close to everything yet you feel almost alone. We expected to see many more animals being so close to the estuary. Lots of Birds, Iguana's, and Anole's. Last year we stayed a few houses up the beach and we had a daily Howler Monkey show so that was missed. But overall not that big of a deal. The house. The house is nice. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is workable but certainly not a "Gourmet Kitchen" like they claim. The living room needs a little work. The couches are very outdated and just plain uncomfortable. But we were all so tired from playing in the sun all day it never became an issue. The outdoor space works, but again not very comfortable. A few leather rockers would have changed that but again not a huge deal. What was a problem were the boogie boards, games, and bikes that "come with the house" The boogie boards were all broken. The bikes were there, but they all had flat tires and rusted chains. And the "games" were connect four. None of this impacted our trip but it was disappointing. At the end of the day the beach and pool make up for all of the houses shortcomings so if you are looking for a wonderful location with great beach access and a great pool, look no further. The area is very touristy so keep that in mind. We stayed in Tambor the previous week and we felt like we were in Costa Rica. This area has an Americanized feel to it which most people would probably look at as a good thing. I however did not......But that beach...that glorious, beautiful, amazing beach...That's why we keep coming back.

Owner's Response: Hi Zachary, thanks for your review, I'm sure the owners appreciate knowing that the furniture in the living room is outdated, I'll talk to them to see if they will decide to get a new sofa. I'm the property manager and should have known that the bicycles were in need of repair so I apologize about that. Those bikes need constant work, and I'm not sure if it's worth it to keep them at the house. I'm going to suggest to the owners to just have the guests rent the bikes from other companies who specialize in that. I'm glad to know that you had a good time at the house and in Playa Grande, your review is helpful for us to know how we can improve the house for future guests and we hope you can come back again! Cheers, Nova

Having stayed at casa Dorado in august 2013 we returned last year for Sept Oct 2014 and can say that my expectations for our stay where totally exceeded

Again the situation of casa Dorado right on the beach is unrivalled and really does impress each time we see it, it really is a true paradise

Again we had a truly exceptional stay at casa Dorado and I was also very impressed by the upgrades that have taken place since our last stay i.e. new large refrigerator new curtains new breakfast bar stools new blinds to all bathrooms and kitchen and as usual the decor both in and out is always fresh and clean

A great addition is the large handmade communal table on the outside terrace a wonderful addition for family dining both from the kitchen or barbeque

We would highly recommend anyone staying at casa Dorado a great house wonderful position on the beach and we wanted for nothing as the property managers where on call for anything we may have wanted

Already looking into booking our next trip it can’t come soon enough

Beachfront paradise, great fit for my family

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great vacation! There's something so magical about being situated right on the beach, I felt I had died and gone to heaven. We swam in the pool, hung around in the hammocks, and ate great food cooked for us by the caretaker, Marcia. The only issue we had was that the refrigerator went out, but the property managers brought a replacement for it right away, and we felt they did a good job making sure we were happy. The beach is unbelievably gorgeous with perfect water temperatures, and we enjoyed swimming there as well as doing some touring around the area. Truly a great vacation spot.

For nature lovers and wildlife fanatics, Playa Grande is the nesting grounds for the amazing and large Leather Back sea turtle. Nesting season is from November to March, and local tour guides can take you on a night tour to watch them lay their eggs. Wake up early and you might be lucky enough to see hatchlings leave their nests. Visit the nursery to see baby turtles. A fun and educational experience for the whole family.
