About this property

Beautiful Beach Hotel with Surf Break Out Front
Hotel Playa Negra is the only beachfront hotel in the Playa Negra area, right in front of the world famous Playa Negra surf break and a few steps away from the beautiful Playa Negra sandy beach.

Our hotel have Seventeen brightly colored cabins that are nestled in a gently sloping site, each cabin is an independent room with lots of privacy.  The round bungalows are built in the thatched roof style, know locally as "ranchos". Thanks to the high roofs, and the many windows, an ocean breeze flows throughout, cooling them naturally day and night. A ceiling fan is there to refresh you at the hottest hours. All the rooms has a large and comfortable bathroom with hot water.

We have 2 types of rooms:
Our original bungalows - each room features a queen size bed and two single ones. These are closest to the swimming pool and some of them have an amazing view of the ocean.

Suite-bungalows - Built in November 2010 and located behind the bungalows, the suite-bungalows are larger, and offer more comfort and privacy (more space between each bungalow). 4 of them have A/C and each one has one king-size bed and two single beds. Amenities include coffee maker, mini refrigerator, wooden deck with a sitting area and hammocks.  Rate depends on the number of people in the room.

Restaurant and Bar
Our restaurant and bar are located right on the beach , with an amazing view of the beach and waves, under a large circular palm leaves’ roof, traditionally called rancho in Costa Rica. It is open non-stop for meals from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm., and the bar stays open later at night.

We serve a large variety of food, including Costa Rician traditional dishes such as “gallo pinto”, many different salads, tropical fruit platters, fresh fish, lobster and other seafood, first choice “lomito” (tenderloin steaks), as well as hamburgers, sandwiches and pasta.

Our fresh fruit smoothies are famous, and so are the favorite cocktails, margaritas, daiquiries and piña coladas.

This is what makes Hotel Playa Negra really special, we are located directly in front of the world famous Playa Negra Surf break. Our on site surf shop offers a complete line of surfboards for sale and rent as well as boardshorts, rashguards, bikinis, surfwax and more. And also we offer activities like surf trips, surf lessons for beginners, horseback riding tours, dance lessons, massages, Yoga and more.

Just come and relax!

This property is located near Playa Negra. One of the breaks featured in Endless Summer 2. This is one of the Costa Rica's best spots. A rocky reef right-hand break, Playa Negra is fast, hollow and can hold some size. It's tends to be bigger than the other spots around here. Fast waves, rocky bottom, juicy barrels, and ripping locals make this a great break, but not for the beginner.
