Traveled here with a group of frineds in July about 2 years ago and stayed for about 2 weeks when the place had just been built, or so it seemed. I have to say that it is a nice little place, close enough to most things. Beach is a 2 minute walk from the room, with excellent surf and beautiful beaches. Place to rent boards at a surf shack next door. Owners are friends with everyone in the area and can hook you up with discounts/deals on rentals or fishing trips or whatever your heart desires. The owners get a special shout out here, because they went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy, and we ended up being friends with them and had a big fish bake in the back yard bbq pit on the premises with them and some other locals. Great resource considering not everyone spoke english and had no local knowledge of where to go and what to do. Everyone was very friendly here, the rooms were cool with an exotic costa rican feel. The upstairs units I think are cooler and are like living in a treehouse. You are surrounded by jungle and exotic flowers/plants. Some days there were monkeys outside our windows. Geckos and lizards wandering through the trees. Neon colored crabs running around all over the place (the good kind)The place is wild, and its not just at Griss. Please look elsewhere if you are a ritz carltun type of high end accomodations type. Place has a little kitchenette with utensils and pots and pans. I saw an AC unit although we didnt use it. Bathrooms were nicely done. Rates are great. This is perfect for surfers, backpackers, adventurers, nature lovers, etc. My girlfriend is fussy and she was fine here, so don't worry you will like this place! I would have no reservations about returning, although we are picky eaters and may return to a big hotel on the water type of deal that had on site restaurants and dining. I found the worst part of the trip was eating food at the local places. Barraka Cafe has a mean schnitzel though, and I would say is the best place around for lunch or early dinner. Its right on the main road to Griss, not much on the road so you can't miss it!
