BP Surf Hotel
Ranked #4 of 6 Playa Grande B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 19, 2013

This was our fist time in Costa Rica, so I took some advise from my uncle who lives in Playa Grande and stayed at "B P Surf Hotel." All I can say is "Wow!" We were given fist class treatment. The place was beautiful and clean and only steps to the beach. The beach was clean and the waves were perfect. The cool thing about Playa Grande is that it's a small beach community with just locals and sufers. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a slower pace to relax. Tamarendo is cool, but more of a party place for tourist. I am already preparing to go back next year! Pura Vida my friends!

Room Tip: All room have been upgraded and are great!

My husband, baby son and I spent 8 wonderful days at BP Surf Hotel last month. Pete and Jocelyn were the perfect hosts, very welcoming - truly great people. They made themselves available for whatever we needed, and Pete even drove us to the next big town over to get groceries and go to the bank. The rooms were lovely, spotless and comfortable - and having a little one we appreciated the kitchen sooooo much. The pool was a welcome reprieve from the heat and (in the late afternoons) from the sun as well. With only 4 cabanas the place was quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend BP Surf Hotel - we'll definitely be going back!

Just got home to Florida after staying at BP with Pete and Jocelyn for 6 days. It was my second time staying at BP. This place is great - clean, private, great location and VERY Affordable. The rooms are great for a long or short stay. The full kitchen is clutch for stocking up on the basics. Pete and Jocelyn are awesome people and will make sure that you enjoy your stay in Playa Grande.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are the same layout. You can't go wrong.

This place is for everyone. From surfers/families/couples or just people looking to have a nice relaxing time close to the beach at a good rate this is the place you want to be. Peter & Jocelyn are awesome people. They take great care of you and are sure to make the best of your stay. Some friends and I from New York stayed here for 2 weeks. We had a great time and miss this place every day. Pura Vida

BP Surf Cabinas in Playa Grande run by owners Peter & Jocelyn is a real jewel. What sets it apart is the "Pride in ownership". Extremely clean,well appointed, secure & convenient to everything. This 4 unit tropical gem is on par with places costing twice the charge.

Room Tip: There is an outdoor grill, plunge pool & shaded rancho for enjoying outdoors, 2 blocks to beach...

I have never felt so at home while travelling before. BP surf is such a cute little place... the rooms are really nice with big bathrooms and a full kitchen, the pool is perfect for an afternoon cool down and its very peaceful.
We ended up staying there on 2 different occasions during our 3 weeks in Costa Rica and we can't wait to go back.
Pete and his family are so nice, welcoming and helpful! We will for sure be staying there again when we return to Costa Rica.

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.

Room Tip: Only about 200 yards from the HUGE beach and main surfing break. It's located right next too ab...
