My buddies have been staying here for years and told me how great it was. It was even better than I could have imagined. The cabinas are awesome, kitchenette, full ref/freezer, cable tv, two fans, A/C, full bath, cool woodwork and shelving/desk area. Those alone are reason enough to stay there because they crush everything around there and the price... More

Owner is fabulous, having a kitchenette is definitely the way to go. I stayed in a casita right next to the pool. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. Pete the owner is a great resource for local knowledge. Two minute walk to the beach, great shower, ac, tv, wifi. I literally sat on my casita porch looking at the pool,... More

We ended up at Pete's place after a different house we booked was so bad we didn't want to stay. BP Surf Hotel is a more like a private retreat than a hotel. The 4 cabinas (studios) are perfect for 2-3 people. They have a kitchen with a gas hotplate and a REAL Refrigerator, a very big thing in Costa... More

Pete the owner was a joy to meet...learning local knowledge and several surf locations. He was an open book with great stories. He alone made this location easily #1. Now for the hotel. Built with high quality detail, great finishes, these large rooms had everything one would need and more. The bed was cozy, and the kitchen was an added... More

Peter and his family are adorable. We love coming here and regularly end up staying longer than planned! We stumbled across this place several years ago when our reservation at another location fell through. We're happy that it did! The location is perfect and the setting is so serene. You can hear the surf plus the sound of the little... More

I've been visiting BP Surf Hotel every year for over 6 years now. I consider this place my home away from home. Not only is the set up amazing, but Pete and his family really make you feel like one of their own. By far the best place to stay in Playa Grande. I highly recommend this place as long... More

I was fortunate to spend 5 days there February 2015 and everything was perfect. Peter and Jocelyn take great pride in making sure everything is CLEAN, SAFE and WELL MAINTAINED.
