You know how it is. You want a vacation that is restful and fun. My husband and I usually travel to many places during a vacation and always have a plan. The idea this time was to have NO plan. We've been to Costa Rica before, and saw more areas, but loved the beach. That's why we decided to stay our whole 10 day trip at the Hotel Cantarana in beautiful Playa Grande. We had a large king room with full bath at a great price, plus a fantastic 3 course breakfast was included every day. Our hosts, Sabine and Marko Tull and their staff were very friendly and welcoming. I have special dietary needs (gluten free), and Sabine sourced gluten free bread, and offered alternatives when necessary. The hotel has a fabulous gourmet restaurant with an inventive chef. It is very easy to get around. We took the water taxi into Tamarindo to get to boat tours and other restaurants, but staying near the beach, reading by the pool, or taking a walk to the other local establishments was really all we needed to do on this vacation. We will definitely be back. We miss it already!!
