WE LOVED IT! It's one of the nicest hotels in the area (we also stayed at Blue Jay lodge & Surf Camp). After I made our reservations I read the review "Please overlook the other reviews and read this one" which described this hotel as a very dirty and bad place to stay at (I was a bit worried). When we arrived at The Place I knew that that review was not true. I didn’t smell anything bad around the kitchen or any other area on this beautiful property.

Hotel Surf The Place Latest Reviews 

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "The Place is a Great Place"

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at The Place FEB 07 (for a full week). WE LOVED IT! It's one of the nicest hotels in the area (we also stayed at Blue Jay lodge & Surf Camp). After I made our reservations I read the review "Please overlook the other reviews and read this one" which described this hotel as a very dirty and bad place to stay at (I was a bit worried). When we arrived at The Place I knew that that review was not true. I didn’t smell anything bad around the kitchen or any other area on this beautiful property. Pool was clean and NOT slimy (I saw it cleaned daily around 7am), great lounging beds around the pool. I enjoyed doing yoga (on my own) every morning in the shady area above the pool, there is also a great yoga class at CasaZen 9am mon-fri. Stuff was very helpful; Andrea (the manager) was friendly and very nice. Our bungalow (the Mexican) was clean and didn’t have a “noxious stench” it smelled very fresh, it was also nicely decorated and our bed was very comfy (which is hard to find in most Costa Rican hotels...this is our 5th trip). Breakfast was yummy and reasonably priced $6. Hammock was in perfect condition (but we didn’t use it much). The Place is 5min walk from the beach (like most other hotels in the area, very few hotels are right on the beach). The Place only served breakfast, but that wasn’t a problem there is many good restaurants in the area (Mary’s, CasaZen Tai food, great Argentinean chicken place and a good sushi place but I don’t remember the name of it). It’s a good idea to rent a car. Everyone should OVERLOOK that bad review... and Enjoy the Pura Vida at THE PLACE.

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "Quite Enjoyed The Place"

We stayed for 3 nights during December of 2006. We really enjoyed our stay as the bungalows were cute, the staff was helpful, and the location was good. Often times, it felt like we were the only group staying there which was nice and then at times you almost wanted some nightlife at the bar, etc. Considering other people's comments, the pool seemed quite clean during our stay even though we were the only ones in it. The guys who worked the bar in the afternoons and evenings were extremely friendly and fun to chat with. I was a sucker for the open air bungalows even though the lights did invite some critters in during the evenings. If you happen to stay in the Beach House bungalow, remember that some iguanas live in the roof and will wake you up like clock-work about 7:30 AM (they climb up by a tree that touches the roof but can't get in your room). We quite liked the litte guys! Overall we would recommend The Place for anyone looking for a little higher value but not luxury in Mal Pais.

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "Wonderful Staff, Gorgeous Grounds"

My boyfriend and I ended our trip here. When we arrived at "The Place" we took a look at the bungalows and immediately upgraded from our original budget room. We stayed in the Mexican themed bungalow, it was so cute. The staff was very friendly and the pool was amazing. The grounds had a great night atmosphere, although it was very quiet at night, as we were the only ones there (went during rainy season). I would return here again in a heartbeat, it was one of our top highlights of the trip! The only downside is that the bungalows let a lot of bugs in at night, due to spaces in the walls.

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "Pass on The Place"

Our experience with this property was very different from the others I've read on this site. We called the property directly to book a bungalow over the Thanksgiving holiday. They advised us that they were booked, but offered us their Villa at a discounted rate of $150 CASH per night. This was above our budge but we were desperate. They said they were 5 minutes from the beach and misled us to believe that we would find comfort there. Quite the contrary: the maid service was un-thorough and pretentious (they wouldn't even wash the few glasses we left in the sink), the property's pool is small and looks green, the landscaping is retarded - there is no clear path for walking from the Villa to the dining area, so you have to duck under chains and leap over plants, and neither lunch nor dinner is served here. Also, the property is not 5 minutes from the beach, but 10, down 2 rocky roads. And the roads to get to Malpais are so bad that it doesn't seem worth it unless you like to surf. If you are looking for groovy streets filled with interesting travelers, head to Montezuma. The only great thing about Malpais in general was a little restaurant called Las Piedras which serves chicken and pork ribs grilled to perfection on an open flame all night long. Oh, and we never met the famed Antonio spoken about in other posts. Andrea was the manager in charge while we stayed and she was a giant exception to the otherwise cordial Costa Rican hospitality we found in the rest of the country. She and The Place are trying to imitate the chic boutique hotels of Miami, but only achieve the pretense without any of the service or charm. We'll pass on The Place, next time.

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "Beautiful hotel, very romantic"

We adored this hotel and would have liked to stay longer. The honeymoon cabin was great, the pool, bar and dinning areas are amazing. You have to eat there if Antonio and Sophia are cooking, the food was delicious. Mal Pais was a beautiful, quite town with great surf. We enjoyed it so much we are planning our next trip.

Mal Pais: Hotel Surf The Place: "Surf The Place-Fantastic"

We went here not knowing what to expect as there is little to no information other than the property's own website. Based on that alone we chose to stay here for four nights- June 26- June 29. We are glad we did.
The location is great, just left of the cross road entering MP/ST about 1/2 mile. The grounds are very attractive, the pool is perfect, the rooms, even the least expensive, were more than adequate.
The best part to our stay was meeting the people that run it, especially Antonio, a jack of all trades. We went fishing, he created a gourmet meal. This included running to the market for fabulous side dishes he put together from scratch! We wanted to get surfing lessons, he instructs. Anything and everything we asked for he was more than accommodating--and pleasantly so! The same can be said for the others, we just interacted more with Antonio, as he was always around.
I don't know how this place has gone unnoticed for so long but I highly recommend this property.
