Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days in a one bedroom unit upstairs on our first time visiting Playa Grande. The apartments are modern and nice. The property is very lush and green. The beach is literally down the street. Restaurants are within walking distance. There are no pantry items in this apartment for cooking or coffee. There's a little (I mean little) stand you can get some grocery items; like coffee and bananas. the nearest market is miles away and we did not have a rental car. I recommend getting groceries on the way to Playa Grande. We didn't have wifi as advertised which resulted in us buying international data on our phones. The apartment building ran out of water on the last day we were there which affected other residents. The apartment only has minimal supplies...4 towels, 2 pillows, 2 small bars of soap. No extras and no blankets, just a set of sheets on the bed. Also, there really is no sofa to sit on. There is a bench with a cushion in the living area which made it hard to relax and watch tv after a long day at the beach.

My husband and I stayed a month at Apartmento Veranara and really enjoyed ourselves. After a bit of moving around the first week we settled in to enjoy ourselves. The condo was clean and organized and just perfect for the two of us. We were close enough to the beach to hear the waves at night and to walk to during the day. Sunsets from the beach were spectacular!! Maryannali was the perfect hostess and provided us with excellent information and hints and tips about the culture and areas of Costa Rica. She was quick to respond to any enquiries or problems. The maintenance man, Randy was very helpful and very efficient with clearing drains, fixing phones and water problems. A really great character and always had a minute to talk. We were close to bike rentals at You Are Costa Rica, we also got to know the owners, Marianna and Marcos, a really wonderful couple, they also did tours and surf lessons;, restaurants, even a small mini-mart for basic food staples were nearby. Wilmart was a short bike ride away, 2.5 kms, but a long walk in the heat. Playa Grande is very quiet and restful, the beaches are not crowded and you can walk for many miles just following one beach after another. The only drawback was the fact that the air conditioner was in the bedroom and did not cool the kitchen/living room for the evenings. I would perhaps suggest to Steven the owner that a/c in the main area would have been great! Other than that, we would definitely go back! A very memorable first trip to Costa Rica!!

We stayed here for our honeymoon with our 2 year old son. It was a beautiful property within walking distance to the beach. The owner was very helpful and nice to work with. We would stay here again.

Nice apartment, unbeatable location!

  • 4 of 5

This place is a 2-min walk from the most beautiful, quiet beach. Not crowded like Tamarindo, but you can stroll along the sands for about 30 min to the estuary and hop a boat across for $1 if you want to do the tourist thing. Great surfing, and the water is perfect. My husband and I stayed in the 1 bedroom (upstairs right-side) apartment for 3 days. It was small and simple, but nice. Reasonably clean, nice shower, and it has the kitchen basics (no microwave, and it would've helped to have a real broom.) Note that the A/C and wifi are only available in the bedroom, but with the fans on, it keeps the whole apartment fairly comfortable. (Don't leave the doors or windows open unless you want about a hundred insects to fly in.) The property is secure, the apartment manager is responsive and very kind, and there's a super adorable iguana living under the front stairs. Overall, a nice place for an easy, no stress vacation. I would recommend it.

A nice apartment in a nice village

  • 4 of 5

WE really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. We had everything we needed and the apartment was very clean when we arrived. The alarm system and the safe box was so appreciated. And we really loved the terasse where we took all diner. We bought our food at Will-mart in 2,5km to the apartment. We had a really easy acces to the beach (2 minutes walk) and it's gorgeous !!! ( the sunset is beautiful to) We stayed just 3 nights and we would liked to stay some others nights . We recomand this apartment to every couple who want a calm and easy stay.

(the only thing was we did not have a broom in the appartment and it's necessary after a beach day )

Location unbeatable ... very close to beach and good restaurants. Everything was easy .....

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in this apartment at Playa Grande. The location is amazing. Two minute walk to 2 restaurants (highly recommend Shakas for their chicken sandwich or fish tacos), walking distance to rent surf/boogie boards and really close the beach. Apartment is simple but has everything you need and is very clean. Excellent property manager who can answer any questions. Very nice balcony to sit and sip evening cocktails and felt safe with the alarm system. It was nice to have a car which made it easy to check out other restaurants in Palm Beach Estates or buy food from Wilmart (2.5 km away), but even without a car you can walk to 6 restaurants/eateries and set up tours or transportation at Frijoles Surf Shop. Really a great place if you want to chill at the beach or even get out to tour around. We'll be back - Playa Grande is stunning without the crowds of Tamarindo.
