I had been traveling in Central America for 2 months and this was by FAR the best place i stayed. The hotel had an authentic/local feel while still being extremely luxury. The bed was the most comfortable bed i had in all of my travels. The rooms over looked the beautiful pool/garden area. The staff (especially owner/manager Davis Marshall) made... More

Playa Grande Park Hotel was absolutely incredible and by far the best part of my vacation to Central America. My friend and I were traveling and booked a few nights here on a whim, not really knowing what to expect, and we were BEYOND satisfied with our choice! Everything from the staff (especially Davis Marshall), the location on THE most... More

If you are traveling to Costa Rica the Playa Grande Park hotel in Playa Grande is the most awesome hotel ever! A must stay! We will be back for sure! Davis Marshall (owner,and manager) met us at the airport, and from our trip start to finish was just amazing! He is bright, knowledgeable, Spanish speaking, very funny and a wealth... More

$ For 135 I thought it was terrible. I mean it should cost like $35 a night if that would of been the price I would never written this review. But I hate paying for something that is simply not worth the price. We arrived at the front desk and the girl didn't even take us to see the room... More

The Villas are separate two story units that have a master bedroom, loft on the second floor and a full kitchen. Four unites are in a fully concrete gated community with a pool in the center. Each one has a patio with table and shares. There are plenty of palm trees and other plantings on the well manicured property. The... More

To anyone looking to stay at the Playa Grande Park Hotel, I highly recommend it! My sister and I decided to take her kids back to Costa Rica this past Feb. We usually stay at some of the nicest resort hotels on our travels. However, this time we decided to try something new and different. We really wanted that quaint... More

I found a Living Social coupon for this venue and was very excited to be able to go back to Costa Rica. This sounded as if it was an ideal setting. It was a challenge initially trying to book the hotel because the only means of contact was an email unless you have international call capability. There is a US... More

I went there with my girlfriend on February. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. The pool is small and there were lot of bugs in it. The staff was nice and very helpful. The breakfast was usual (eggs, rice, beans and bread)... Not bad not good... just usual in Costa Rica. The location of the hotel was... More

Very comfortable place to stay with a short walk to the beach. Typical breakfast was included with the stay, eggs, toast with rice & beans. Food was a little pricey, but was very good. Ariel took care of anything we asked of him very promptly. Nice place with a relaxed vibe. Will stay here again if return to Playa Grande... More

We stayed in February 2014 (little late writing this!). We began our trip at an all inclusive resort in Playa Conchal for the first 4 nights, which was an amazing resort. BUT, upon arrival at Park Hotel, it was like we had finally arrived in true Costa Rica. This adorable hotel gave us the authentic experience of Costa Rica we... More
