The location of Casa Dorado couldn’t have been better. Truly paradise with the ocean just steps from the back door. Dan was great from a communication perspective and answered all questions I had. This was slightly off the beaten path but within arms reach of tamarindo by boat. Nothing bad to say

Beautiful property with amazing direct access to the beach. The house is lovely and accommodated our group well. Dan, the property manager is wonderful and we enjoyed eating delicious tacos at his local restaurant 1 night. We had a little mix up with our cook one day and asked Dan to hire someone to prepare all our meals for the remainder of our stay. Karina was worth every penny and made our last 3 days magical. The landscape and pool man was very kind and did an excellent job as well. Highly recommend nearby A Cachete Surf for surf board rentals and lessons. Heyner was fabulous! They are located next to Dan`s restaurant - be sure to visit both!

We will 100% be returning to Casa Dorado. We had 5 kids ages 2-7 along with 7 adults (2 sets of parents and 3 grandmas). We had plenty of room. The set up was absolutely perfect! From the kitchen window you can see the pool, walkway, and a glimpse of the beach. The kids bounced back and forth from the pool to the beach and we had adults set up in both locations. Felipe was such a great host! We had Marcia the housekeeper cook us dinner 2 nights and it was fantastic! If you’re reading this and considering this house JUST BOOK IT!

Casa Dorado is a beautiful home right on the beach in Palm Beach Estates. It has a large pool and lots of bathrooms and bedrooms with air conditioning throughout. This is our second stay at Casa Dorado and won’t be our last. I’m already looking forward to our next visit and we only left today.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Dorado over the holidays! By far way better than being stuck in busy Tamarindo with hundreds of other tourists, we enjoyed this Playa Grande property for the following reasons: A very private property with lots of shade from trees, so the kids could spend hours in the pool. The beach is beautiful and very accessible for swimmers and surfers. We saw amazing sunsets around 5:30 pm every day.

This is not my first visit to casa Dorado and it will NOT be my last. This has to be the best beach house in the area the position right on the pacific beach of playa grande really cannot be beaten, it takes seconds to be walking the warm sands of the Pacific ocean WOW. It was good to see that the house is being updated regularly and is both clean and extremely comfortable. We liked the new BBQ built in the gardens, which was great for entertaining under the stars. The large private garden and pool are extremely well kept with a daily gardener (Oscar) the pool is also cleaned daily. We had a great time spotting all the local wildlife and birds that often frequent the garden great for the kids. The large bedrooms upstairs are bright and airy and two lead onto a huge terrace (its 40ft x 8ft) looking over the pool metres from the pacific ocean which is amazing for a early evening cocktail while watching some truly amazing sunsets. The lounge is very comfortable with two large sofas and a large futon there is also a selection of books on offer (just leave one in return if you don’t finish the book you are reading before you leave) and chess and draughts (checkers) even connect 4 !! There is a large picnic table outside which is great for sitting around and having food it seats twelve which again adds to the feel of inclusion the same inside the house a large central dining table which can be used but to be honest we spent most of our time outside enjoying the gardens and pool. Would we stay here again, without a doubt it’s an amazing house exceptional position on the beach, 5 minutes walk on the beach to the water taxis across the estuary to Tamarindo but to be honest we preferred to stay at Casa Dorado and Playa Grande was like having a 4km beach to ourselves.

Two families of four stayed here for a week in February, and we would do it again without reservation. The setting is amazing, the beach, the privacy, the grounds of the property. However secluded the location, we never had any qualms about security. You pass through two auto-gates coming into the Palm Beach Estates. The access to the beach is what we wanted and what we got. Even in the big February surf, we all felt comfortable swimming, even the youngest in our party at eight years old. The waves are big, but we never encountered any rip tide. The water in Feb. lacks the blue you get elsewhere, but it’s very clean. The beach is really clean, too.
