Lovely place where we got a warm welcome, they rent surf boards and the breakfast is healthy and delicious!! We appreciated the proximity with the beach and also did some visits to tamarindo 25min and playa flamingo (20min). The area is nice, rooms are small but clean and ok for a couple. There’s a yoga spot inside the hotel with some hamacs here and there to chill… Nice place that we highly recommend for its calm, placement, cleanliness and the nice people working here. Thank you 🙏

We stayed here for 3 nights and it didn’t disappoint. Our room was a short walk to the beach. It was affordable, clean and welcoming. We enjoyed the hammocks in the shade during the heat of the day. Highly recommend for a Costa Rican beach getaway.

The family who owns La Marejada takes such pride in their property and makes you feel right at home. The minute we arrived, Coco took us on a tour of the very clean hotel and shared information about activities, restaurants and excursions. Gail was always available to assist us with transportation needs and anything we needed. The beach is a short walk across the street with beautiful sunsets and fantastic surfing. Our beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet during the day and night. We enjoyed yummy pancakes and coffee each morning and sushi for dinner. Oh, and the mojitos at happy hour are so refreshing! Hammocks are plentiful for siestas alongside a nice pool. It was a worry-free week at the La Marejada Hotel!

I spent a peaceful and relaxing week here while attending a Sister Surf & Yoga Retreat in November. I love this quaint, little hotel and this was my second time staying here. There is a glorious row of tall palm trees lining the walkway along the pool and a beautiful pink flowering tree that frames the second floor balcony. Once you step inside the gate you are in a pretty place with helpful, pleasant employees who make you feel at home. My room was clean and comfortable. I absolutely love the food at their open air restaurant. I highly recommend trying Marco’s Homemade fettuccine and ravioli, as well as the chocolate cake. The típico breakfast is my favorite and their sushi night is amazing too! Everything is good here. This is a great, affordable place to stay within walking distance to gorgeous Playa Grande beach!

We had such a relaxing time at La Marejada. La Marejada is especially perfect for surfers. Just a few stops out front and you’re at a world class wAve. Gail and Marco were amazing hosts. They were able to answer all of our questions and went above and beyond when we needed assistance. I had the wrong board for the surf out front so Gail was kind enough to lend me her short board. When we were running late for the ferry into tamirindo she even gave us a lift to the ferry dock from a nearby hotel. The rooms were very clean with great air conditioning. The beautiful pool is tranquil and made us feel even more relaxed with the bubbling sound of the little waterfalls. There is an outdoor shower to wash the sand off you after a day at the beach and the hammocks in the shade to relax in after a day at the beach. All the food at the restaurant was delicious an reasonably priced - we especially loved all the seafood dishes - fish tacos, tuna tartare and the Sunday special sushi night - some of the best sushi I’ve ever eaten ! - And the breakfast burritos are out of this world. We had the best time and we can’t wait to come back to la Marejada again.

Our group stayed at the Westin at Playa Conchal and we kept talking about when we all wanted to come back! We could not speak more highly of this resort. The rooms, the food, the pool, the drinks, the service were all top notch! The only thing was there was not much to do after the sun went down. But this ended up forcing us to crawl into bed early (we were really tired by then anyway haha) and wake up early with the sun to utilize the daylight time. The beach is conveniently and amazingly close. The beach was gorgeous and the waves were so fun to swim in. Don't miss out on taking advantage of the boogie boards, snorkeling gear and kayaks that are included (YES!) in the all-inclusive resort fee. We were blown away by our experience and will be so excited to return (hopefully) soon! Note: if you are interested in day tours to Volcano, Rainforest, Tamarindo, etc....Andrei from ConchalFun will be on the beach. He was very approachable and transparent about what the tour offers. Amazing service and great prices to pair. It was for sure the best deal than others we had talked to. We took his shuttle/tour (private to our group of 8!) to Taramindo on Monday. Our tour guide Diego was super knowledgable and we felt very safe the whole time. In addition he was so good with the two kids in our group . We had an amazing experience on this tour and would look for Andrei again should we go back to Playa Conchal.
