Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I can't recommend this place enough! It was beautiful and perfectly located. I enjoyed walking out to the beach at night to watch the sunset and sitting on the deck to look at the stars :) Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly!

  • Great spot if you're looking for a relatively quiet experience on the beach. If you're looking for tourist activities and places to eat/things to do, go to San Juan Del Sur, not here.

    Though there was miscommunication about the location, Dale rectified the situation by picking us up in Rivas after we incorrectly took a cab to SJDS. He also stopped off at the grocery store in Rivas so we could stock up on food. Make sure to do so if you're planning a stay. The market in town does not carry very much and what they do carry is quite expensive.

    Though the places to eat out are somewhat limited, we had some great meals downtown. Don't miss Blue Sol. Hike up the hill to the right of Dale's and check out the lobster joint and it's great view. You're on the ocean, eat fish.

    If you're looking for a lot of amenities, look elsewhere. This is a surf shack and amenities are not the top focus. Nonetheless, great views from the room and overall a great spot to stay.

  • Had a great time at Dales Place. The apartment, right on the beach was amazing. Great spot in a great little town with amazing surf. We'll be back for sure!

    Cheers Dale

  • Dale's place is fantastic. La Ocean Vista is right on the beach at the north end of Playa Gigante. The beach is shared with the local fishing community and some great local restaurants and beach bars. Dale and/or Dougie were around whenever we needed anything (air for our flat tire, directions to some good surf, lessons on filleting dorado, etc.). It was a pleasure to stay with them - we will definitely be back soon!

  • Dale's ocean view place is the bomb. His whole property in Gigante is worth checking out. Five minute walk to anywhere in town or up to playa Amarillo. Rustic surrounding, nice teak floors. Was a little worried coming into town how we would find the place but it's easy once you're there. And fully check out Party Wave for breakfast down the street.

  • Dale was a great host. He was very very laid-back and friendly and basically was just there to help if need. The room was very clean! The beach was mostly populated by local Nicaraguans and what I like to call "surfer dudes" (young Americans staying to surf maybe learn Spanish and on a budget). There were a few bars/restaurants on the beach so you won't go hungry! The place seemed somewhat isolated and to get there you will have to drive on a dirt road for some time, but they were actively building a real road! This place is NOT a 5-star resort where someone brings you a Piña Colada to the pool but it's a great private bungalow on a great beach! Definitely, a top choice to relax and enjoy your life! It's like camping but with all the amenities!

I left my home in San Diego California to go live in a shack on the North Shore of Oahu. I caught the travel bug early and have spent many years exploring the coastline from San Francisco to the Colombian border. I believe Playa Gigante is one of the most magic spots on this coast and I have build several small comfortable house to stay in. I hope you also find the magic that I enjoy here in playa Gigante.
