My boyfriend and I stayed here on a whim while travelling and what a pleasant surprise! The service was outstanding - the rooms were simple, clean, open and cool and the atmosphere was amazing - so relaxed and friendly. We had the fish tacos and sangria at any given opportunity and have been trying to emulate them ever since. (going... More

I spent 3 weeks at La Marejada and had a wonderful experience. The property is very well maintained, the rooms are kept very clean and the staff are all so friendly and helpful. The beach is a short walk away with great surf. Best of all, the owners of two of the nicest people I met on my trip. I... More

This was the perfect hotel choice for our family of four (two teens)! Loved the low-key vibe of the place and Gail/Marco are so helpful and accomidating! We stayed eight nights and my kids and husband surfed nearly six hours a day on beautiful Playa Grande (two minute walk to the surf from this hotel). Our rooms were impeciably clean,... More

My wife and I did not stay La Marejada (stayed at Hotel Cantarana) but decided to venture into "town" for a bite to eat. Hands down the best fish tacos we have ever had. The waiter had a great sense of humor, brought us free appetizers, even 2 shots after dinner. Not sure about the stay but we highly recommend... More

What a great place. Rooms are almost flawless. Beds are as good as they could be. Marco and Gail were great hosts the whole stay. Only thing to consider about the rooms is that they don't have TV, but you have the sun, beach and amazing waves just a few steps away (is just a short trail between the beach... More

Clean, comfortable, hot water, electricity, wi-fi, great food, next to the beach, surf shop in walking distance: everything you need when staying in Playa Grande. As everyone else said in their reviews, Gail and Marco go above and beyond to help with any logistics (shuttles, daytrips etc). There is always a small, friendly crowd of travelers and local ex-pats hanging... More

My friends and I had a great stay at La Marejada. Gail and Marco were so wonderful and accommodating. Communication via phone and email were fast and easy and the whole process from reservation to checkout was smooth. Gail helped us out also when our plans changed and we needed to stay a second night later on our trip on... More

Home to the comfiest beds I've ever stayed in at a hotel! Gail is an excellent host and will arrange your day trips for you. The pool is clean and a great spot to refresh during the mid-day heat. The staff at the bar and restaurant are super friendly. Tips: Pay cash for everything in Playa Grande, you'll save money.

We stayed next door to La Marejada at the Rip Jack and went here for dinner and lunch once each. Very good fish tacos and the entire menu was very affordable. When we got back late from the turtle tour the owner even stayed open later for us and made us dinner. Even gave us some complementary pulpo (octopus) antipasto... More
