“Your support team!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We recently stayed in Playa Grande at a private house rental. The house owner uses frijoles logos owner, Corynne, as a travel concierge. She was so helpful from the moment we booked. We were given a lengthy list of activity choices and she efficiently booked many top notch experiences for us. We enjoyed a private surf lesson our first afternoon in CR. The instructors were very attentive and patient and we even had a photographer document some of the successful runs. Corynne helped book a day at Hacienda Guachipelin for zip lining, horseback riding and river tubing. Also a day with a private guide to Palo Verde- by far the kids favorite day. I highly recommend contacting Corynne for all your needs if you are staying in this area. Her shop is beautiful and her staff top notch!

“Great Place”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I spent two nights in late January and was worth the money. I travelled with my wife, mom in law and 2 kids. The 2 room apartment was extremely clean,comfortable, and quite big for the 5 of us. The kitchen had everything we needed and the huge balcony and swimming area was a real bonus. It was a 2 minute walk to a local food store and Tico restaurant. Another great thing was it was 2 minutes from the surf break. Corynne promptly returned all emails and made our stay really pleasant, she was really great to deal with. We spent almost 2 weeks in Costa Rica and when I asked what his favorite part of the trip was it was sleeping in the pirate bed in Playa Grande, my was head high barrels in Playa Grande.

“Frijol Feliz Day Spa”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I received a deep tissue massage at the Frijol Feliz Day Spa located at the Frijoles Locos Surf shop in Playa Grande a week ago and it was excellent. What a great way to enhance a great vacation. Corynne and her staff were very professional and the massage was so relaxing, I think I probably scared the therapist with my snorts as I drifted in and out of sleep. I would certainly recommend it to everyone! I was in a dazed state of bliss for the rest of the day!

I also rented a bike from the surf shop that was a great deal and purchased several great t-shirts. Everyone was incredibly friendly and nice!
