Also adjacent to the main parking lot where hundreds of tourists visit daily.

The construction of the hotel building is outstanding, with circular base, inspired by Egyptian pyramids. The space could use some upgrades aesthetically, but structurally it's like a fortress.

The town of Playa Grande is growing now after many years of being stuck in construction red tape, the municipality has begun to release permits for single family homes, keeping development controlled, and a mostly residential, low density development.

It's located just north of the estuary from Tamarindo, (20 min by car) sharing the same bay, and only 1 hour from the international airport in Liberia.

The hotel has about 200 meters of Titled Beachfront. Playa Grande is gorgeous beach with over 3 kilometers of golden sand beach to explore and friendly waves for all levels of surfers. Just across the bay from the town of Tamarindo. Playa Grande is a protected nesting area for the Endangered Leatherback Sea Turtle, and the founder of this hotel helped to start a marine national park to protect the turtles. Development on the beach is now impossible due to the national park restrictions, which makes the location of this hotel all the more valuable. It will always be the only beachfront hotel in the area! Playa Grande currently has about 12 restaurants, around 260 homes, a convenience store, 2 small grocery stores, several surf shops and tourist shops, a health clinic and dental clinic. There is a brand new paved road all the way from the international airport in Liberia to the front of the Hotel (Completed in April 2018)! Liberia is about 1 hour away, and Tamarindo is just 20 min by car, or across the estuary by boat. The hotel was built about 30 years ago and needs updating, but the location is a once in a life time, unique and very coveted opportunity.

Premises Details:

The hotel has over 200 meters of beachfront and is exactly right in front of the main break where hundreds of surfers visit every day. The beach is also an attraction for nature tourists and ecotourists who like to visit the nesting grounds of the Sea Turtles, and visit the national park office, which is just a 1/2 block away from the hotel.

Size in square feet:
3000 m2
Planning Consent:

The hotel has all permits and liquor licenses up to date.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

There's room on the property to add more rooms, however, obtaining the permits will be the challenge. The best idea for expansion will be to drop a few containers on the corner for rental of a souvenire store, or a rental tourist office, with economy rooms on the second floor perhaps.

If the right investor appears, the owner of this hotel, is also will to sell his other property which has 20 apartments just 3 blocks away. There's your expansion!

Competition / Market:

There is no competition. This is the only beachfront hotel in Playa Grande, and there will most likely never be allowed to build any more this close to the beach in Playa Grande ever because of the heavy restrictions due to the National Marine Park.

Reasons for selling:

The owner built the hotel almost 30 years ago as an eco-tourism destination. He is ready to retire, and has no heirs to inherit it. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Trading hours:


Years established:
over 25
