Unique and will ever be in our heart

Amazing for couples, surfers, singles and even families. Spacius, beautiful, friendly. Eat holiday ! The beach has THE most beautiful sunset we have seen in the world and we travel a lot. Really special.

If you're wanting to immerse yourself into the culture, then this is the place to stay. It has a jungle feel to the property along with some critters, I opened the door in the morning and a crab thought he could take me on. We loved Playa Grande and will definitely go back!!

The staff is awesome, the property and room are good for the price. My only complaint is the noise. Because the property is older, made of wood and there is humidity, one can hear creaking from neighboring rooms when people are walking around. Not a big deal during the day but if one's neighbor stays up late or rises early, there is no sleep. Bring earplugs :)

2/5

Excellent location near the beach and two outstanding restaurants. Pleasant and accommodating staff. Good shower and AC. However, our room was a big disappointment. Walls and ceiling were dark and made of plywood. Seemed cheaply made. So-called kitchen consisted of a plank counter, tiny sink, one-cup coffeemaker, antique refrigerator. No chairs except for backless bar stools. No dining table. Overpriced for the quality of accommodations.
