Recent Playa Grande reviews

  • We found Paradise!

    "Casa De Vre' is the best beach house on this side of Playa Grande! The house is designed with open views of the ocean. You step-out of your bedroom and you're on the beach. It offers the best sunset vistas from anywhere in the grounds and property with its beautiful gardens and landscapes. The luxurious accommodations and exclusivity are better than anything we've had with other high-end hotels. There is more than enough room for a group family vacation. Each bedroom is Air-conditioned which is a nice plus, however, one wouldn't spend much time in them as there are so many things that will occupy your time outdoors, such as surfing, boogey-boarding, nature walks, beach combing, or simply relax in a couple of outdoor hammocks right outside your steps, perfect for an afternoon nap or siesta, or lounge around the pool area which gives you unrestricted views of the ocean and the nightly sunset vistas - the best neon patchwork in the skies! This place makes you feel like you belong here..you wouldn't want to leave.. ◦"

  • Wonderful house, staff and location

    "Wonderful home. Spacious with plenty of room for large groups to spend together and large rooms for ours teenagers to hide away in. Great kitchen. Staff is friendly and personable. Having the option for meals to be cooked was a blessing. Not having to eat out for every meal was great. Not having the burden of planning every meal (and grocery shopping) was a blessing. Plus the meals were excellent! The pool isn't huge, but was big enough to cool off and lounge in. The beach is a 2 minute walk away. And what a great beach. Perfect for all to enjoy. The location of the house is ideal. A short water taxi (or hike if the tide is low) to Tamarindo where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. To the north are a trove of other wonderful beaches to explore as well as adventures such as ATV, zip line and snorkeling/scuba. It was so nice to be so close to everything we wanted to do, yet have our quiet retreat to return to each day. The only thing to be aware of is the last 2km of the road. Can be pretty bumpy and muddy. We were glad to have the raised 4WD. Not that we needed the 4WD but it was reassuring that we had it. This was our first trip to Costa Rica. Everyone had a great time and looks forward to returning. Would definitely consider another stay at Case de Estrella!"

  • Secluded, Safe and Tranquil...

    "yet close to everything you could want in Costa Rica. My wife and I have been travelling to Costa Rica frequently over the past 15 years, always in Guanacaste from Tamarindo to Playa Del Coco and this was the best location yet. Close to the bustling Tamarindo beach for world-class fishing and the beachy night life, but far enough (just a few minute drive though) to feel away from it all in this Playa Grande villa. Its location is quiet, within a gated, small enclave and its own less populated, even secluded, beaches and business district (meaning a store or two for anything you'd need, good restaurants and beach/surf shops). Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family jaunt; it'll fit the bill for either. Richard is as prompt and easy to deal with as any owner you'll deal with and he/his team are wonderfully helpful with trip planning. You can rent bikes, boards or horses within walking distance and there's never much traffic - another big plus as opposed to Tamarindo, if that matters to you. We also tried the in-villa chef visit with "Ander" (ask your concierge) and it was a fabulous experience with amazing food - lobster bisque and swordfish with a bacon wrap over risotto... it rivals a higher-end, big city fine dining experience, presentation included... but cozier. Great service and when they're done, you wont see a sign they were even there!! They clean everything, put away left overs and you do nothing but enjoy the dinner - I had them deliver a local flower arrangement too - this is one time, you wont know you're in a third world country - excellent experience! The Villa is more than enough for a couple with plenty of space to spare and would be great for a family too giving everyone plenty of room to spread out and relax. The fully stocked kitchen has all the features you'd want and like all of the rooms, plenty of beautiful wood cabinetry to hide away all your stuff. Large bedrooms throughout with a beautiful master and accompanying well-sized master bath. Everything is super clean and the management service is readily available with just a phone call. Ceiling fans and cool air moving well throughout the villa after a hot day on the ocean or beach with air conditioning units in each room (important for us as we keep it pretty cool). Overall, very serene location, beautiful, secure and private villa just a short walk from pristine beach, and laid back atmosphere all over town... Pura Vida awaits you @ Richard's Playa Grande Villa."

  • Family vacation

    "Villa Orquideas was our home base for a 2 week Xmas vacation for our family. It was impeccably clean, high quality linens, super confortable beds and sofas, ample kitchen linens, beach towels, shower towels, paper/cleaning necessities. Kitchen with full appliances, well stocked, a few minor items missing upon arrival, replaced the very next day by condo manager. Many different areas within the house and grounds allowing common time (large dinning room table/ open kitchen living area) as well as private time (2 different living rooms on 2 floors, and several terrasses). 5 homes nestled around a common pool, all tenants during our stay quiet, curteous and pleasant. NO other neighbours. Very short walk to the beach; ocean view through the trees as soon as you walk out of the property grounds to the left. Most amazing beach, both surfable and swimmable ! Another beach to the right, a few minutes walk, TOTALLY private even through Xmas and New Years. Property owner super helpful and accomodating."
