Our group of four adults stayed at Hotel Cantarana in March, 2014 for five nights. It was the perfect choice for us for this area. We didn't want the crowds and bustle of Tamarindo, so chose Playa Grande instead. So glad we did. The beach is beautiful and just one block from Cantarana along a quiet path. Very empty, soft sand, great swimming, and good waves for surfing and boogie boarding. Sandy bottom beach for swimming too. Super relaxing. We loved the small size of the hotel - only 5 units, and its lovely pool and garden area. Rooms were clean and had everything we needed. One of our rooms (the one in the restaurant building) had no hot water a few times, but it didn't bother us as it was so hot there at Playa Grande! The restaurant was great for breakfast and served amazing dinners too. Within a few blocks walk are a few other restaurants at different price levels. The staff were very helpful and we were able to rent boogie boards for the day a few minutes walk down the road. I would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers wanting something small, quiet, clean, great value, and well situated next to Playa Grande. US$35 taxi ride from airport, if you arrive that way.
