PGI is a very good value. It's perfectly clean and the hotel central pool area is a great hangout for taking a break from the beach. We enjoyed the ping pong table, pool table and foosball. Justen, the manager, is easy going and always wanting to help with any needs. Jason, the restaurant manager, was great and enjoyed making tasty food and sitting around and talking. Currently there is a fruit and soy smoothing bar owned by Rita and those were excellent. The hotel staff is very easy going. The beer is cold and reasonably priced.
The Playa Grande beach is the place to be for surfing. It’s the best low tide Frisbee beach I’ve played on in many years.
I would and will stay there again.
The rooms are no nonsense: clean beds, a small table and 2 chairs. The A/C worked well. There is nothing else in the room. There isn’t an ice machine at the hotel.
You can’t see the beach from the hotel. Nor can any other hotels in the area. The beach is a short walk through the trees.
If you’re an early riser, there is no nearby food/drink available until 8 AM.
Food isn't cheap, but Costa Rica beyond street food isn't cheap so PGI was in the middle price wise
