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... More

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! Through which we had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Chelsea and Rahul(sorry if I spelt your name wrong buddy!) whom were happy to chat surf, local amenities and general day to day life in playa....

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... More

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... More

Great value. Great location. The beach is a very short walk right from the room. Cold A/C, hot showers and very clean rooms. I loved the table and chairs on the porch, relaxing in the hammocks and pool, and the restaurant was delicious and nutritious.

Our first night in Playa Grande we happened upon this place. And we sure are glad we did. It's a small place with great food and service. We ate here twice it was so good. The first trip I had a seared tuna salad that melted in my mouth. My wife had the tuna tartare that was soooo good we... More

We enjoyed our last meal in Playa Grande at La Marejada (Swell). The Antipasto Italienne was nice but not worth $20, the pasta was good but under cooked, the hit of the meal was the fried snapper which was delicious! Our waiter was excellent but the owner (man with long hair and European looking who we assumed is the owner)... More

I stayed here for a surf and yoga retreat called Sister Surf and Yoga Retreat. Their website is sistersurf.com. Highly recommend!!! La Marejada has a home away from home vibe, cute rooms, clean, and comfortable. Gail is an amazing host and will help you with activities and information. The restaurant has amazing fresh food, with Marco's amazing homemade pastas. Sushi... More
