Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • Quiet location, great beaches

    "A great location if you like a quiet, peaceful setting very close (3 min walk) to a great beach with few people around. A great place for surfing or just hanging around the beach. The villa is very private, surrounded by the "jungle". No disturbances, you can hear and see all the birds and the wildlife around you. The villa matched the description provided, a great pool and the amenities you need, it is air-conditioned in every room (3 separate units), kitchen, washed dryer, etc. Mike come early to clean the pool from leaves, etc. every morning and never bothered us. The high speed internet (WiFi) worked flawlessly all the time. A couple of restaurants with great Costa Rican food are in walking distance, they are very reasonably priced, and very friendly and helpful with suggestions and accommodating your taste; of course you can get burgers too but then you don't have to go to Costa Rica.Tamarindo town/beach is a 30 min drive and has endless number of restaurants, it can also be reached by watertaxis durind the day One recommendation, you better have a 4 WD car to get to the place and around, the roads are rough. Overall, if you want peace and quiet to relax and take it easy it is a great place to go, if you want the bars, the tourist crowd, nightlife, etc you should go to a resort in Tamarindo or just stay in Miami"

  • Fantastic Experience

    "What a great experience as we had a total of 8 men staying at the house on a surf trip. The house was really clean and comfortable and you cannot beat the location. We actually were not in the house much as we were driving up and down the cost most days looking for surf and adventure. What was truly fantastic was when we got home the house was cleaned, the dishes cleaned, beds made and towels refreshed. Maria the on-site house keeper was great! As well they have a night watchman to ensure nothing goes missing while you sleep. There is a very large enclosed car lot as well. Shawna who overseas the property and makes all the arrangements was excellent! She pre-stocked the house for us with a custom list of items so when we arrived beer was already in the fridge. The location cannot be beat as Playa Grande is beautiful white sand beach and the community is quiet. If you want crazy then a short drive to Tamarindo is all it takes. I highly recommend the house!!! Thanks Shawna and Maria!! Pura Vida!!"

  • Great location, and roomy property

    "We stayed 8 days at this house and the place was very spacious, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The living area was also big and comfortable. The only thing it was missing was a proper dining table inside. There is a large one outside with benches but it gets dark and mosquitoes eat you alive. The pool area was nice, private and the garden was luxurious. It was kept clean everyday by the maintenance staff. The beach is few minutes walking. Maritza, the lady who welcomed us, was so generous of her time and services. The little grocery store next to the property is practical but very small and expensive. If you need to do proper groceries, go to Mega Super, 12 km driving distance. We highly recommend having a car to stay in that area. After 6PM, there is a security guard that opens a gate to get into the community."

  • Family Surf Vacation

    "We spent 7 days in playa grande at casa muy grande; we lived the pura vida to the fullest. We comfortably fit 7 adults and 4 kids in the house. The open kitchen and living space was ideal for entertaining and relaxing, while the 2 acres of land, hammocks, pool area and of course the beach gave us plenty of room to spread out. The house management team was super friendly and made fabulous dinners - the guacamole was extraordinary. When we wanted to eat out we had plenty of options within walking distance - we even ventured into Tamarindo for an afternoon, enjoying a great beachfront meal. The days involved waking up early and surfing, lounging at the pool, and more surfing and swimming as the sun dropped into the pacific. We rented surf boards and bogey boards from the local surf shop and everyone did their best learning on the friendly waves. A must do is the estuary boat tour - we walked 10 minutes up the beach to the boats - paid 10 bucks each and saw numerous birds, monkeys and a HUGE alligator. This was a great trip - and the house perfectly suited our needs. We would definitely go back."
