Me, my buddy and my father just returned from a stay at BP Surf Hotel. This was my third time to Playa grande. We were originally supossed to stay next door but due to a booking mistake there weren't enough rooms for us. We ended up staying in two cabinas (there are 4 total) at BP instead. We had no idea what to expect and we could not have been happier.
The property is kept immaculate. The outdoor sitting area, tiki bar, pool, courtyard and front porches are kept spotless and cleaned everyday. The outdoor courtyard is a great place to relax, swim in the pool, have a cocktail, etc. The pool is great and also includes a nice waterfall feature.
The rooms are fantastic and include two beds (queen & single), flat screen TV, beautiful hard wood built in closets, full kitchen and excellent bathrooms. With the full size fridge we were able to stock up on all kinds of food and drinks for our 6 day stay. The finishes in the rooms look great and are true Costa Rican decor.
The owner, Pete, is the man. He's been living in Playa Grande for 6 years (transplant from Florida) and he has it dialed in. He knows where to go, where to eat, etc. He also knows everyone around town and is a super helpful resource if you have any questions. He hung with us in the pool one day and surfed with us another. He's not going to bother you at all - we asked him to hang out with us because we wanted to be around his enthusiasm for Costa Rica. He's very passionate about the country and has a true love for life.
We're already talking about our return trip next year and we are defininately staying at BP with Pete.
Only about 200 yards from the HUGE beach and main surfing break. It's located right next too ab...
