“Great food and service, Playa Grande Estates”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

If you are staying in Playa Grande Estates, this place is just a short walk away. We ate here most evenings, as it was close, but also because we felt welcome. The atmosphere is exactly what we want on vacation: open dining, fun tropical bar, a beautiful pool in the background, and most of all, a fun, friendly staff. The food is delicious. The portions are huge, so don't let your eyes get bigger than your stomach after playing in the ocean all day. They have a wide variety, so it's good for groups and kids.

“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

This is the 3rd time that we ate there. The first 2 times the food was excellent. We went to their Monday night Mexican buffet. In a word it was terrible!! The Enchiladas were over cooked & dried out. Nothing was properly seasoned no melted cheese for the nachos & no dressing on anything. The vegetarian 3-bean chile was excellent. The overall buffet looked like something that was thrown out of the kitchen to feed the hotel guests on the chef's night off. Our waiter Ernesto was fantastic & from day one the main reason we keep returning.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Drank and ate here a couple of times while watching NFL playoffs. The staff are awesome and the owners are down to earth great people. We had a blast both nights as the place turns into a party. The food is fantastic, you get big portions and the prices are great. I have no idea why anybody would complain about any facet of this place? A guy we met caught some fish on a charter and they cooked it up for us no questions asked. It was great! The hotel grounds are peaceful and immaculate. Don't hesitate to check this place out.

“fantastic club sandwich”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

we had lunch at the Great Waltini's. Nice atmosphere in very quiet area. I had one of the best club sandwiches I've ever had. My wife's salad with chicken was adequate. Service was not quick, but was on par with the rest of Costa Rica.
