I took a vacation with my son which into surfing and we stayed at Playa Grande Hotel. Our first impression was "relaxing and great vibes". The hotel has a surf theme. It is very clean and simple. Our room was nothing fancy as we expected but had comfortable beds and a clean bathroom. Our room was located in front of...

Clean, peaceful place. What I was looking for in one of my favourite beaches in Guanacaste! Delicious breakfast; coffee, gallo pinto, toasts and eggs. We stayed at a small room, but closer to the beach are the villas and they look beautiful. Will definitely come back.

I purchased a groupon for this hotel, took me 2 weeks to get someone on the phone to make the reservation.- that should have been my first indicator that something was not right. I finally made the reservation - received no email confirmation for a week. I had to call back several times and finally got someone on the phone....

This hotel was an awesome and different experience than we could have ever imagined. A hotel that is far from your commercial experience provides a personal touch that you will never get at a commercialized chained, great people who knows you by name, close distance from the beach and great conversation. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who...

I recently stayed at the Park Hotel and had a fantastic time. From the pick-up at the airport (which they arranged for me), until I left, the place and people were great. My trip started with my flight getting held up and Davis (the owner/manager) made sure my ride waited on me. Once I got to the hotel, I felt...

I found this hotel via Trip Advisor and researched all the surrounding places, along with reading the reviews. The villa was great for our family. There is a wall around the complex with a gate that can be locked. This area was very safe regardless, and I had no concerns about walking around during the day. At night, we always...

I had been traveling in Central America for 2 months and this was by FAR the best place i stayed. The hotel had an authentic/local feel while still being extremely luxury. The bed was the most comfortable bed i had in all of my travels. The rooms over looked the beautiful pool/garden area. The staff (especially owner/manager Davis Marshall) made...
