Stayed at PGI in August 2012 for 5 nights and i couldn't have asked for a better experience. Justen was a fantastic host, and all his staff were all super friendly and helpful. Rooms were great value for money, clean, and over all really comfortable. Between the pool, ping pong table and bar area (complete with projector and Justens collection of almost every surf movie ever made) the amenities were outstanding and provided everything needed when waiting for the tide to fill in between surfs, or realxing after a day in the water. Food and drinks were great and at PGI, MarBar and Raw we had all meals covered for the entire trip. Food quality and service was excellent and all options are great value for money.
The highlight of the trip was a boat trip to Witches Rock and Ollies point, which Justen and his staff went out of their way to help organize for us. Huge thanks to Justen, Freya and Javier for hooking us up on a day when every other boat was booked out due to the good swell.
Playa Grande is a beautiful place with amazing surf, and the folks of PGI were excellent hosts. I will definitely stay here again.

When in Costa, do as the Tico's. By this i mean relax, and enjoy your self. There's no better place than the Playa Grande Inn to just that. The atmosphere is friendly, The food is good, and the whole place is beautiful. I have never stayed at such a unique establishment. The pool is one of a kind, not to mention the underwater seats to eat your poolside breakfast every morning before paddling out. The Inn is only about a 30 second walk to the Beach. The Surf is consistent and every day you will have a rippable wave. Even if your not a surfer, you can still enjoy the ocean here. When it's Low tide, the waves aren't surfable, so that means everyone can swim and play without being in harms way. Aside from the Beach, there's tons to do around this small town. Justen, the man running the show will gladly hook you up with any kind of tour, adventure, or activity that you might be interested in. He knows everybody. You'll know every body in Grande too by the end of your stay. Everyone is just so friendly, and happy here. The community is tight-nit and welcoming to new people. PGI is the place to stay when coming to CR. Tons of great places to eat/drink, great weather, great people, and great Vibes are what makes this place click. Take my word for it.

Surf, geckos, iguanas and monkeys. The food is what you need to do two sessions in the water. The beer is cold and the crowd at the bar is fun. Great value for a clean room, hot water and huge commons area. I was glad there was no TV but the WiFi was super fast and I wish I had spent more time on the beach instead of checking my email.

Yet again I have had a wonderful experience at the Playa Grande Inn. What more can be said, the rooms are clean and reasonably priced, the restaurant and bar are convenient and fun to just hang out and mingle, and the overall experience is a Blast.
The atmosphere of Playa Grande is laid back and you feel as if you belong as soon as you arrive there.
I have been many times before and will be going again!
Justen and the entire staff are wonderful!

I have read other reviews and I am unsure of how they got the impression that they did,this place is great, just my humble opinion.
