Honestly guys, you should have your restaurant in Tripadvisor too. La Marejada's restaurant/bar was my favourite in all 5 weeks travelling in Costa Rica. We stayed at RipJack and ate there too, but mostly came here for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Every single meal was pure greatness. Fish tacos were the best I've had: healthy and fresh but with a twisted funny cheddar...

This was a great hotel to stay at for our beach weekend getaway. It was so quiet and relaxing! A phenomenal location as it is just steps from the beach, and the hotel also has lovely grounds with a pool for reading and napping in the shade.

This place perfectly fits in the Playa Grande vibe. It is very relaxed, with 2 layers of 4 rooms, 8 in total. It is small-scaled, with all the needs u have in a sunny paradise like Playa Grande: good bed, AC, a nice pool and very friendly hosts who arrange everything you want to do, like taking a surf(lesson), get...

Stayed three nights as a solo traveler in Costa Rica for a photography book project. 20+ previous extended trips to Costa Rica but my first time at Playa Grande. Pros – small size (~8 rooms?) makes for familiarity and intimacy. All the staff quickly greet you by name with a genuine interest and hospitality. Co-owners Gail and Carlo are personally...

The rooms here aren't much, this isn't a place to stay if you plan on relaxing in your room a lot. They are comfortable, serviceable, but uninspired. Where this place really shines is in its bar/restaurant. These guys really put forward a tremendous effort to provide a good, fresh menu of Mediterranean inspired dishes with enough occasional specials and surprises...

Spent 4 nights here on a mother/daughter trip and absolutely loved it. The beach close by is incredible for walking and surfing and the hotel itself is clean, comfortable and staffed by wonderful people

During a two week stay in Playa we frequented La Marejada's restaurant for cold mojitos and fresh food nearly every other night!

La marejada was recommended to us by our neighbours and we were not disappointed. Our first experience was just stopping in and getting drinks (they let us come in even though they appeared to be closing - very much appreciated). The next time we stopped in for lunch and my boyfriend and I both had tacos and we were very...

The people who run it are very nice. They are experiencing water rationing so the water turns off at a specific time every night. One night it was much earlier than expected and we couldn't take much needed showers. With out us asking they comped us a few things. NO safes in room.

I spent three nights at La Marejada last week and had a wonderful stay. Gail and Marco (the owners) are friendly hosts and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Playa Grande. There are only 8 rooms at the hotel, and I imagine all are pretty much identical, except some are on the first floor and others are...
