Perfect hotel, friendly service, great food. Will definitely be back. They go out of their way to help you and the atmosphere is relaxed and positive. Cute pool and bar also.

Let me preface this by saying I am an insufferable hotel snob and typically stay in 5 star hotels to the tune of 80+ nights a year.

La Marehada is not a world class hotel, but is exudes something even some tony properties miss the boat on, which is genuine hospitality.

Everyone we met in Playa Grande was welcoming, but Gail and Carli really set the tone for our visit.

They run a very clean and friendly operation steps from the beach and I would recommend staying at their hotel without hesitation.

Know that this is a very basic accommodation/low key operation, but is clean and the girls could not have been any more accommodating.

They are too polite to come out and say it, but they also might have the best restaurant in town too. My friends and I ate both breakfast and dinner there, and both were the best we had in town.



Keep up the great work Gail and Carli! Can't wait to get back there next year!

Carli, Gail, and Lindsey are the most accomodating and friendly people we've found in our travels. The La Marejada and Mar Bar are great places next to a beautiful beach!!

Our return did not disappoint...same friendly ,helpful owners, not forgetting to include Manu at Marbar, friendly competent staff serving delicious freshly cooked food and drinks at reasonable prices and some local 'characters' all add to the experience.

We just LOVE La Marejada!! GREAT service from the girls, clean rooms and affortable! We would absolutely return there. If you are going to Costa Rica and Guanacaste and you are looking for a nice small hotel away from the tourists in Playa Tamarindo, you should go to Playa Grande and La Marejada. Nice beach and you can walk to Playa Tamarindo, watch out for the tide =). You should rent a car though,.. There's a small(!) supermarket with not so much to choose from and it is not that fresh. So you really have to have a car... at least for a few days. (The girls can help you with that).
And you have to see the turtles!

This is the type of place to stay if you want great food, clean rooms, excellent service, and beach access. My girlfriends and I had an incredibly relaxing time at La Marejada Hotel. The kitchen served up wonderful, fresh food; our room was refreshed everyday; the pool was clean and sparkling; the atmoshphere was amazing. Carli and Gail made us feel so welcomed and we will definately stay here again!
