Indra Inn is a very pleasant place for those who want to escape from the civilization for a few days. The location is wonderful. It's only a seven minutes walk from the beautiful playa grande beach and it's remarkable sunsets. It's also next door the best pizzeria that we have ever been to.' The owners, Mathew and Natalia are very... More

Playa Grande is an idyllic beach and for us, Indra Inn was the perfect choice as accommodation for our first week in Costa Rica. Matthew, Natalia & cutie-pie toddler Dante are welcoming & helpful hosts. Matthew was our shuttle from the airport ($60) - it is always nice to be greeted after a flight with a smiling face. The Inn... More

We got to Indra Inn late in the evening. We were met by Matt, the owner and immediately shown our room. It was a nice touch that he gave us some time to settle into the room before checking us in with a cold drink in our hands. He gave us a really good overview of the local area and... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Indra Inn in Feb 2015, and it was one of those "oh man, wish we could have stayed longer" experiences. The Indra Inn is a quiet, comfortable, relaxed place to stay. The rooms are clean and have A/C if needed. We definitely felt like we were welcome guests, and were treated very... More

Thank you Mathew, Natalia and Dante - and your staff and friends you nurse so well. The place is run with true passion and love for all guests and details.
