Great location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. We surfed nearly every day. The surf shop gave us lessons here because the breaks are great The beach has fine sand and is at least 80 yards wide at low tide. It's great for walking. You can walk for miles. Beacause of only a few houses this end of the beach is about as opposite of crowded as it gets. The pool and outside set up is great. The restaurants in the area are reasonable and great (no need to leave). Tamarindo is 1/2 hour by car or a 5 minute walk through the estuary( Ferry boat $1) during the day. The house itself inside could you a bit of TLC on the inside. The people are friendly, Marco the concierge took care of our concerns and helped us set up a cool kayak tour of the estuary.

Fulfills All Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four stayed here for a week in February, and we would do it again without reservation. The setting is amazing, the beach, the privacy, the grounds of the property. However secluded the location, we never had any qualms about security. You pass through two auto-gates coming into the Palm Beach Estates.

The access to the beach is what we wanted and what we got. Even in the big February surf, we all felt comfortable swimming, even the youngest in our party at eight years old. The waves are big, but we never encountered any rip tide. The water in Feb. lacks the blue you get elsewhere, but it’s very clean. The beach is really clean, too.

The grounds are kept really well at Casa Dorado. A gardener waters the grass daily, and keeps the pool constantly inviting. The concierge, Marco, really takes this place to another level. We leaned on him a lot, and he was always there, always cheerful, always responsive.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

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

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.
