                      Recent Playa Negra Reviews

                      Good value in a unique area

                      4 of 5
                      This was our first visit to Junquillal, although we had been to Guanacaste several times. We were there in early December, and enjoyed great weather most days. We had the pool to ourselves most days (except for the howlers, the lagartos and the birds), and also had Playa Blanca to ourselves except for the occasional fistherman. Michael and Viki's villa is spacious, and the balcony off the master bedroom has views of both the sunrise and the sunset. There is a security guard/handyman on duty 24/7, and each of them was very helpful and seemed happy to assist with anything that came up. They keep the pool very clean, and will turn on the waterfall on request. We can't really comment on the Hotel Iguanazul, as it turned out to be closed for renovations during our stay. If you are counting on access to its facilities (about a five minute walk) you might want to consult the hotel before your visit. However we discovered a number of other good options for restaurants and wifi elsewhere in Junquillal. Mundo Milo and Guacamaya were the best we found, although Cafe Surf, Lochitos, and Los Amigos were all good as well. The supermercado next to Cafe Surf was surprisingly well stocked. The best excursion we had was the mangrove estuary kayak tour, $30/person, arrange through Sylvia at Castilo Divertido. We had also hoped to see turtles nesting, but that didn't work out while we were there. But a visit to the volunteers working at the turtle station near the beach is very informative.

                      Awesome place within walking distance of the beach, stores, and restaurants!

                      Villa Thoga was the perfect Tamarindo getaway! It was clean, comfortable, and convenient. It was nice to have the benefits of a home, while in a foreign place. We utilized the kitchen often (with all cooking essentials and hardware), but we also went out to appreciate what the town and tico lifestyle had to offer. The pool was prime for cooling down and the lounge chairs and outdoor table made the gated courtyard very comfortable. Having a locked gate was also great piece of mind. Not to mention, AC was a lifesaver! The house cooled down quickly and was the perfect temperature for winding down and watching a TV show in the living room area. It was nice to be surrounded with reliable appliances and fixtures throughout the home. The dining and activity binder was full of suggestions for our stay. That coupled with Gaby's personal suggestions and advice made decision making easy! Contact with hosts was quick and pleasant. We knew we were in great hands the entire time. We traveled with another couple and we all agree that we lucked out with this find. The location was ideal for our needs and wants. It's perfect for beach time and exploring the town. We would definitely stay here again! Pura Vida!
