Indra Inn is a lovely intimate space that has cozy rooms, a lovely breakfast with Matt and the other guests, and walking distance from the beach, other shops and restaurants in the area. Matt is really helpful with advice on where to go, how to get there, and helping with pickup from and to the airport. He is an all... More

We booked two nights, ended up staying for six. It's a lovely place! Affordable and even though it's a 10 min walk from beach, we found it to be a good location in Playa Grande. It's family run and that's s big part of what makes this place so nice. Matt is very helpful with everything and Natalia supernice, she... More

We found Indra Inn on Trip Advisor and it is a great affordable location that is a short walk from Playa Grande (one of our favorite beaches in Costa Rica). Rooms have A/C, hammocks and a warm breakfast is included. The breakfast is simple with eggs and toast plus fruit and coffee. They also have a communal kitchen although we... More

Super cozy little joint, run by Matt and his wife, Natalia. Clean rooms, a good breakfast, and a good value, in the Playa Grande area. I would highly recommend this place, if you are looking for something slightly off the beaten path, with a warm, homey feeling. There isn't a pool, and it's a bit of a distance to the... More

Me and my friends stayed for one week at Indra Inn. Matt and Natalia welcomed us and gave recommendations what to do in Playa grande. The breakfast was good and we had fresh fruits every day :) The beach is about 15min walk away. Matt and Natalia are also organising events like poker nights, quiz nights and concerts. Definitely recommended!!

We stayed at Indra Inn for a week this May, 2015 going into June and don't regret a single second. The couple running the place is beyond helpful, friendly and warm!

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.'

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.
