Best things about this place were the food at the mar bar, and its proximity to good surf. Rooms and pool are pretty small and basic but clean. Walls are very thin. Staff is very attentive to your needs. Had water and sewage problems when we were there...but that kind of thing happens in CR.

Just got back from a 10 day holiday on the west coast of Costa Rica. La Marejada was the best hotel of the trip. The rooms were lovely, the hotel was small and the staff was wonderful. It is just 2 hotels down from the rip jack and i'm happy we decided on la Marejada instead. Way more peaceful. We also went on the Leather Back Turtle tour. People staying in the hotel went the night before us and saw nothing but we were lucky and got to see a 140cm turtle lay her eggs. Amazing!

GREAT place to stay!!!!! here is an unbiased breakdown from a well traveled, slightly critical individual....

POSITIVES:

1. SUPER friendly staff (3 girls own and run the place)
2. super clean (i inspected thoroughly, including bathroom)
3. very comfortable beds and soft sheets
4. close to the beach and main surf break
5. ambiance (has a feminine touch, in a good way, very stylish)
6. restaurant has good food (modern and tipico)
7. high ceilings (on 2nd floor)
8. smells nice - rooms have aromatic diffusers
9. GOOD lighting (dimly lit rooms hide dirt, bugs, etc..., this is my pet peave.)

NEGATIVES:

1. no TV in room (is this really a negative though?)
2. small pool (who needs it, playa grande is amazing)
3. nightlife consists of going between 3 hotel bars, or long nights of turtle watching (i recommend bringing a portable dvd player)
4. no market with in close proximity to la marejada, so you end up running a huge food/ drink bill between the 3 hotels nearby.
5. walls are a bit thin, so you'll hear your neighbors if they are being loud.
6. hotel has <10 rooms, so book ahead. i didn't have a problem, but i may have gotten lucky
7. as always in costa rica, try to pay with cash, otherwise you are charged a 10% fee.

SUMMARY:

overall, i believe this is the best hotel for the price in the area. this is my favorite place to stay in costa rica. i will definitely be back. playa grande is amazing, if you talk to the american locals, they all have a cool story about how they came here on a whim and never left. can definitely see how that works.

We just returned from a 10 day stay. We usually take a winter vacation and decided to try Costa Rica this time. The rooms were very nice, very clean and the personal attention from the owners were fantastic. We ate at the Mar Bar at least once a day and the food was wonderful along with the servers. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Costa Rica. We will absolutely stay at the La Marejada Hotel again. Carli and Gail were provided service way beyond expectations.

i needed a few days to unwind so booked a quick trip down to playa grande for a surf/relaxation holiday by myself. after reading all the reviews, i figured La Marejada was what i was looking for...and it turned out to be perfect. the rooms are as described by past reviewers ... simple, clean and comfortable. Carli and Gail were great...they were laid back but attentive which made the stay very enjoyable.
the hotel is only a very short walk from the main surf break which obviously made it really convenient. it was great to wake up at sunrise, surf for a few hours, and then return to a really good continental breakfast. The food at La Marejada was also a highlight with some local dishes as well as a few other types of cuisine. i was really surprised with how cheap the food was for such great quality.
in all, if you are looking for a relaxing vacation where you just want to surf/read/walk the beach while being comfortable and enjoying some great food, look no further than La Marejada.
