We are regular visitors and we will not stay anywhere else. This is a simple eco resort that employs only locals. This time we stayed in the Rancho rooms and they are perfect for those that would rather spend money on drinks and food. Clean, beautiful grounds, pool and great

This place was great. My room was extremely clean and quiet and the air conditioning was a nice surprise. The property has a nice pool as well as beach access. It is steps from the turtle conservation area. Easy walk to tamarindo during the day.

The Las Tortugas Hotel is excellent value for money. We stayed with three kids aged 1, 4 and 7 in an appartment privately located on a hill with a small pool. As a guest you can use the large pool, the kids pool and the hit tub in the hotel area. There is yoga, free of charge,

I am currently staying in playa grande and have been for 2 months. It's an awesome place with a wonderful community. If you haven't already found a place to stay I would strongly recommend the apartment I have. i cant post a link on trip advisor but if you google Megan's properties Costa Rica, you should be able to find a wordpress site. Contact Megan and ask her for francisco's place. It is a small house with a basic kitchen and a pool within walking distance to the beach. I pay $550/month As far as the turtles go, I'm pretty sure that it is $25/night. You may be able to find a local guide that will work with you but BE CAREFUL. There are a lot of people on the beach that know where the turtles are and will tell you they can take you, but they are not licensed and threaten the habitats. I haven't been myself as it's not the season right now, but I do know of a reputable/licensed local guide that can take you. If you are interested I can get his direct number for you today.

Anyone know what time is check-in and check-out? Thanks!
Checkout is noon. Checkin in is whenever you get here. They will hold your luggage if the room is not clean. Full payment is due at checkin. Discount for cash. Food can be run on a tab and paid with credit card at checkout. The food is awesome!

"I recommend the Lighthouse apartments which are quiet and secluded."
"Check before you jump in the pool in the morning. Local crabs like to take a midnight dip. Staff scoops them out early every morning!"
"#10's the best"
"Book it. You will not be disappointed."
"Room 4 is the best because of its patio, convenience to the pool and to the car park."
