What we loved: the owners and the breakfast crew, the location (away from the Tamarindo confusion but very close to the calm of a protected turtle nesting site and an excellent surf beachbreak), the atmosphere (clean but cool; surf spirit), the refreshing and well oriented swimming pool, the spatial organization: parking and restaurant for all followed by the guest reserved...

This hotel is not all hustle and bustle, it's more like being home away from home but in a natural relaxing atmosphere. The owner Gail is a great host and is never to busy to assist you in anything We would definitely come back again

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of January. I was most pleased.Owner Gail and staff were most friendly and helpful. With just 8 units, all clean and comfortable, there was a feeling of both intimacy and privacy. The surroundings were quiet and picturesque. The restaurant and bar offered good affordable food. I am glad... More

Just spent 10 days at La Marejada and it was a wonderful experience! Gail, the proprietor, was helpful in recommending tours and hikes that were off the beaten path, so we were able to enjoy as true sense of the local flavor. The room and bed were comfortable and clean and the courtyard area is inviting. It is a short... More

Stayed two nights in January. Gail was a great hostess and made us feel at home. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The vibe was very laid back and informal. It's about a two minute walk to the beach. The restaurant was fine. We were there for the Sunday night sushi menu. Amazing.

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was awesome! The rooms are very clean and well decorated. There's a pool to cool off in, and lounges under a row of Palm trees. It's a 2 minute walk to a perfect surfing beach, and there's a great bar/ restaurant. They do fantastic food and there's a really friendly chilled out... More

Spent a couple of nights there on the 4 and 5 of January. Clean rooms, friendly helpful staff and owners. I would recommend to anyone. Did not have to formally check-in because we arrived before 2 but they gave us the keys and told us not to worry about the check-in, we could figure it out later. They even brought... More

I can't say enough good things about La Marejada. I traveled there for (American) Thanksgiving week in November with my husband and two teenage girls. We were looking for a clean, safe, friendly hotel located as close as possible to Playa Grande's beautiful surfing beach and famous turtle nesting sites. We were not disappointed. La Marejada is a small hotel... More
