Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • 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."

  • Overall very satisfied

    "The property was as shown in pictures with a big, beautiful kitchen. Luckily the air conditioner was strong because it was so hot outside. The only somewhat disappointment was the pool, which looks bigger in the photos than it actually is. Still, it was a great place to stay. Highly recommended for travelers to Costa Rica."

  • Perfect week

    "A terrific week at Casa Velas. We were 3 families--7 adults, 4 kids under 12 and the house met all our needs. Having the pool and beach so accessible meant the kids were always entertained and the spaciousness of the property met the adults could relax and even work in privacy. Having the 5 bedrooms air conditioned was a godsend in a very hot week. The gentle sloping beach meant the kids could play in the water while the adults surfed. Ana the cook and housekeeper cooked us 2 great meals and kept the house free of sand. When we cooked we realized the cookware-- especially the skillets and frying pans need updating. Not having a car was not a problem. We often took the 15 minute walk to the estuary and took the boat ($1 per person) to Tamarindo. Don't try swimming it---one day we saw the 10 foot crocodile. When we made reservations at Seven for their Friday night barbecue ($10) they sent a pickup truck to pick all of us up and return us afterwards. Mariana of "You Are Costa Rica" provided us with transportation, tours, surfing lessons and even some supplies (a case of beer) as well as advice. We were also fortunate to be there when the mangoes on the property were ripe and when the Howler monkeys came to eat. A great week and we all hope to return."

  • Beach House Made for an amazing vacation

    "We spent 6 days at the beach house with our four kids, ages 6 to 11. We had a great time. Spent time at the beach every day. The Dodge's were great hosts and loaned us some boogie boards, the kids would go out and play in the surf for hours. The kids collected beautiful shells, sand dollars, and built sand castles for big and small hermit crabs to live in. The beach was perfect. The sand gradually slopes into the ocean, gently enough that my 6 year old that doesn't swim very well could still go out into the ocean without too much worry. We sometimes felt we had the beach all to ourselves. The beach was clean and felt very safe. The sunsets were amazing. Comparing to any of the other beaches we went to, for our family Playa Grande was the best."
