Excellent 9.0
Pros: We really enjoyed the chill feeling at the hotel and around the grounds and beach. The staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. The bungalow was superb, well-appointed and private. The town of Tamarindo was just a pleasant 10 minute walk along the beach.
Cons: The food was just OK. The layout and content of breakfast buffet wasn't so good.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: A beautiful hotel and gardens that was only outshined by the people who work there. An easy walk to town, but far enough away to relax.
Cons: The beds was a little firm for our tastes.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It’s location and staff. Walking distance to Tamarindo but far enough away to avoid the crowds. The staff was genuinely interested in making sure you had a great stay. The facility was also very clean. Definitely recommend.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The owners’ story about this hotel and how it came to be built is fascinating. The care and craftsmanship put into every detail of the hotel’s space reflects the simple genius of the plans. We loved the open air concept of the main lobby and the tasteful privacy of our room. The location is perfect being right on the beach.
Cons: The food served at lunch and dinner was heavier than we liked. Adding more fresh vegetables, salads, and larger doses of fresh parsley and cilantro would definitely liven up flavors. The fresh fruit at breakfast was wonderful!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Pretty much everything was wonderful! There wasn’t anything we didn’t like. The staff is so accommodating and nice. The rooms are large and comfortable. The food is terrific. They have a great happy hour. We got a couples massage on the beach at sunset they was amazing. Parking is easy and free. The location at the end of the beach is quiet and there is a path that takes you to Langosta Beach also. The howler monkeys were outside our room almost daily and slept in the tree next to our room. Scheduled a covid test and that was easy and quick. The doctor came to the hotel. The cats on property are awesome. Simba hung out in our room a few times. Will stay here again every time we are in Tamarindo. Cannot recommend enough!
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The calm and the comfort
Cons: The Road to Cap Suizo and the limited menu for dinner

Pros: Great, I love the gardens
Cons: More menu choices.
Good 6.0
Pros: The staff who doesn’t work in reception is extremely friendly and attentive. Unfortunately the experience we had with two woman at reception ruined our ability to recommend it going forward. Plus the added fact that management did nothing to remedy the situation.
Cons: Two women at reception. One specifically lied to us about how to get a required Covid test that you need to return to the US. She lied about an appointment that she said we had, and we didn’t. She also claimed she was a manager of the hotel. When we complained the next day, management did nothing. No apologies. And no contact to tell us how they were fixing the situation. It was almost like they didn’t care at all that a staff member had lied to their guests and caused them a half day of worry. We wasted hours trying to do what a good hotel would have done for its customers. Don’t go here if you expect concierge service and reception staff that knows the area and how to help its customers. It’s too bad. The bar and restaurant staff is great.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Food was amazing! Breakfast and dinner were just incredible. Staff was very nice, helpful and very friendly.
Cons: Nothing. Everything was amazing.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Breakfasts were great with slot of options for fruits, cheeses, breads, yogurt, cooked eggs your way, juices.
Cons: A hot tub, a machine for cokes, water, juices.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Dinner, breakfast, view, cleanliness
Cons: No refrigerator and no signs to street path.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The place was amazing. Staff was so friendly and the food was good. The ocean front lounge was perfect. I would highly recommend anyone stay here. Clean, quiet, and in a great location. You would never know you were steps away from the main street because it felt so secluded.
Cons: I thought it was ocean front but you had to walk to the beach. It wasn't a big deal and that might have been stated but I wasn't expecting that.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The grand vista room was incredible with the cold tub on the balcony. The staff was always so polite and helpful!! They were the best. Complimentary breakfast and dinner exceeded my expectations
Cons: The bed was a little firm for us but that’s about it

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Really enjoyed my stay. Great quiet hotel for a small number of guests, tackled 5 min away from a busy high street. Nice lounges and music to enjoy in between your surfing and exploration. Cold water and drinks always available. Great help from Marie with local advice and contacts - she provided everything that I needed to know. Will definitely stay again.

Pros: My wife and i went to Costa Rica on our honeymoon, and we spent our final five days at the Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel. We absolutely loved it, hated to leave and can’t wait to come back again. Everything from the location, to the ambiance and decor, and especially the staff, was top notch. We can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Tamarindo.
Excellent 9.7
Pros: The hospitality
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Kevin and the staff were fantastic. From start to end they were so welcoming, helpful, and friendly. The breakfast every morning really started the day out correctly. So good! The rooms are amazing and the whole chill, chic, vibe of the place made for a great complement to the Tamarindo experience. A little oasis from the beach and the town.
Cons: Seeming complaint at first is really a strength; little tricky to get to but the map they provide is immensely helpful. Nice that it's a street or two away from the main strip.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Excellent location. Very near from the beach with an almost private access
Cons: The room does not have enough sound insulation, so it was easy to hear noise from the other room next door.
Good 6.0
Pros: The breakfast was great, most of the staff were really nice. Private secluded room with beautiful foliage surrounding.
Cons: Felt like we did not get enough for the amount we paid. Firstly, we paid extra for “Adult Only” which did not give us any extra perks whatsoever. Secondly the staff at reception were not very friendly and did not offer to help my wife with her bags while showing us to our room. For paying “luxury” price, we were not treated as such. It was also quite far from town, 25 min walk, but they did offer free bikes to borrow.
Okay 5.0
Pros: The hotel setting is very nice!  The beach in high tides is beautiful! The staff, especially at the restaursnt, is nice and doing their best. 
Cons: The 2bdrm villa we got (#101) is in a very bad shape and needs overall renovation.  Had many small issues and shouldn't be sold for such a high price in that condition. Hopefully other villas are in better condition. The pool was very dirty. You couldn't see the floor. The next day we noticed the main pool was also dirty. The villa was full of ants if all sizes. Glass doors (3 of them) to go out were somewhat broken and couldn't be opened smoothly. Shower heads are half broken and needs to be replaced. We patiently complained multiple times. After 24 hours the reception manager came in to view the issues. We never heard back from him until check out, when he proudly discounted our first night dinner. A nice gesture. Breakfast is quite limited. Not really designed for young kids except the pancakes. Kitchen is not well equipped. Just the basics. Uppn arrival / departure there is no one to help with the luggage. The worst cost to value we had in Costa Rica and a want-to-be or ex boutique hotel.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Beautiful landscape and access to the beach; also amazing staff, friendly and helpful

Pros: The restraunt staff are lovely
Cons: It's not worth the money.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This property is magical... it is clear that it is run with pure intentions and pride. The staff couldnt be kinder or more helpful, they truly go out of their way to help you and make you comfortable. The food is delicious. I stayed here 7 years ago and then again last month and its just as special.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything from the staff to the services and the locations. Their attention to details was amazing

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Awesome hotel right on the beach near the mouth of the river between Playa Grande and Tamarindo. Quiet and peaceful but close enough to walk into town for anything you need. The owners and hotel staff were super friendly and the breakfast was fantastic every day.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Fab location right on beach..lovely owners and wonderful breakfast
Cons: Room very basic .. could not tell from their pics.. bed comfortable which made it workable.. but worst storage space ever seen which could b easily upgraded.. however turned out to b minor issue..we managed and otherwise loved place..
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Oliver and his wife are amazing hosts! The breakfast is a treat, and the location cannot be beat. Low-key, relaxed vibe
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Alexia and Olivie` who run the place treat the guests as if we are their family!! They are the most accommodating management we have ever dealt with. Without them this place would just be "OK" but they make it very special.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: close to the beach
Excellent 9.2
Pros: The hosts were super nice and helpful. The garden setting was perfect and the breakfast menu was unique and catered to your taste. Alexandria - the owner - is the chef and uses only the top ingredients to make you a variety of a la carte dishes for breakfast. The service is great and just lovely vibe all around. The room is basic but extremely clean.
Cons: We wanted some place quite on the beach so this worked well for us. But it is a 10 min walk to where the life of town is. So, chose accordingly. The room we got did not have a safe.

Pros: Staff and owners are incredible. Breakfast awesome. Rooms comfortable and clean.
Cons: Morning coffee could be hotter.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Close to the beach and town proper
Cons: Not much. All minor annoyances
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location is just perfect! Near everything but far enough to have peace of mind. Place is very comfortable. Room size is good, has a nice terrace with hammock and cloth line.
Cons: Bathroom size is big and has o good shower but there was a bad smell (sewer smell).
Good 6.0
Pros: Close to everything in Tamarindo
Cons: Overall our stay was okay but in our opinion not worth the value. When checking-in, the room was not ready because they were “fixing the hot water.” No big deal but then when we checked-in the hot water worked for about a minute or two before going cold. We notified staff who more or less said there is nothing else they could do. Pictures look better than it does in person.
Good 6.0
Pros: Location, staff, bed.
Cons: For usd 56.50 a night, I was expecting something good. The shower is terrible, you need to choose which water gun is better. It was clearly broken, watering all bathroom. Mosquitoes everywhere maybe because the housekeeper left the door open while cleaning. The last night a huge butterfly flew over me in the bed.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Amazing central location. Owners were very accommodating and able to fulfil any request. Room was sparious and clean with a really nice private patio area.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We LOVED our stay at Villas Macondo! Location was close to everything so there was no need for a car. Rooms were smaller but very clean and comfortable. Pool and grounds were very beautiful and well maintained. They even had a kitchen for guest to use. All the staff we met were exceptional, especially Sara, who even offered to schedule our covid test and make sure we had all the paperwork in order for us to return home. I can’t wait to come back!
Good 7.0
Pros: Pros: Convenient, clean room, AC. Nice staff but not there at some hours of the day. Good value. Cons: Horrible night sleep— loud guests. Cat fight in middle of the night (literally cats !) and some woman crying really badly. I even wondered if I should check on her, as I didn’t know of course why she was crying. But I was so tired from the poor night sleep.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Lovely little haven In central Tamarindo. Staff knowledgeable, professional and pleasant Place is well run and v clean Tamarindo Beach superb and close by. Tamarindo and Macondo Villas is my mind of place. People friendly and invested, vegetation creates privacy and attractive. 1BR Apt great
Cons: Some creepy crawlies first night but staff upgraded me. People who like modern clean lines or hate bugs shouldn't come here as much vegetation Place across road makes much noose at night

Pros: Pool looked nice but weather was bad Bad breakfast Closed for dinner which was probably a big favor Bugs everywhere in the room Dirty sheets
Cons: Can’t blame them for the weather Nice receptionist tried to help find food Dirty bug infested room Couldn’t wait to leave
Excellent 9.0
Pros: facility is older /no frillls but very well maintained and clean
Excellent 9.0
Pros: I lovee this place! It was like staying in a cool-kid tree-house bungalow type place minus the tree and the bugs! The pool was the perfect temperature, staff was friendly, the location CANNOT be beat. The location was great because it was super close to everything but off the main roads for quiet. Tamarindo is a noisy town and this hotel was very quiet, calm and serene. We met the owner randomly and he was very kind and welcoming. We didnt eat here but the restaurant seemed very popular and was quite busy in the evening. Our bed was a bit firm but otherwise good, and the AC worked well. The bathroom was nice. Shampoo, lotion, conditioner, handwash, fresh towels (and extras), as well as a full-size blowdryer were provided. A safe is also included. TV was not a smart TV so limited channels for when you need a break from the heat.
Cons: Breakfast not included due to "COVID" but all our other hotels in CR had breakfast. Lame.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: It was beautiful, luxurious at a reasonable price, I had a big room that was always clean. The hotel is a 1 min walk to the grocery store or the gym and a 5min walk to all the shops, bars and restaurants (some are even closer) and a 7min walk to the beach - absolutely perfect. The staff was very kind and the restaurant in the hotel was reaallyy good!! I highly recommend! 10/10!!
Excellent 10.0

Excellent 10.0
Pros: One Word: RICHARD! The owner of the hotel, Richard, is amazing! He is there to help with anything you need and he makes you feel like family. The rooms are nice and simple. Nothing too fancy but everything you need. The grounds outside are BEAUTIFUL! We got some amazing photos at this location! We loved sitting in our hammock in front of our room during the hottest part of the day. It's in a really nice part of town. It's just a quick walk to all shops, restaurants, and the beach. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you so much for everything! We would definitely come back and visit again!
Cons: Everything was amazing!
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Rooms were clean. Private nice for couples
Cons: Far from beach. Need to work on the very simple breakfast menu
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Arco Iris had a great feel to it. The pool is very nice. Richard is a super cool guy and is extremely friendly. We had to leave at 4:00 am to catch our flight and Richard gave us some fruit, muffins, and juice. He offered that up without us even asking. We were very happy with the location. You are just far enough from the noise of the main street, but still able to walk to everything. The beach is maybe a 5 minute walk. There is a walking path from the hotel to a road with tons of great restaurants. If you feel like staying in for a nice meal, they lease their dining space to one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo, Seasons by Shlomy. We traveled to 4 different cities in Costa Rica and this hotel was our favorite by far.
Cons: The air conditioner in our room was kind of weak. It worked a little better at night. We weren't around much during the day so it didn't bother us much.

Pros: Friendly staff, good food, great 2 for 1 happy hour all the time, beautiful sunset view! The room was like a loft and you could see ocean when you sat up in bed in the morning.
Cons: The parking situation was tight and there was a sewage smell walking from the car to the room. Also, we thought we had the option to purchase breakfast, but they didn't serve breakfast or coffee.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The rooms were so charming with Costa Rican beach flair! The location is ideal, with massages (affordable and yet still expert), an excellent restaurant on site with nightly shows from local artists, and right next door, you have everything you could want in terms of rentals and guides (also affordable and expert). I highly recommend this property!
Cons: The gate situation is tricky, but the staff is always nearby, and it is on the beach, so you need to be okay with sand everywhere, which we were.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: From the minute I drove up everyone was so helpful! I got checked in very easily and they stored my bags because I arrived early and check in wasn't until 3pm. Everyone was so helpful! The accommodations were wonderful! I loved the use of the space. Very comfortable! I enjoyed sitting in the hammocks by the ocean. The hotel is very relaxing!
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like. This place and location were fabulous!

Excellent 10.0
Cons: The lack of reception office hours, makes the hotel more like an air bnb. The airline lost our luggage, definitely not the hotels fault but it made the delivery of the luggage very difficult.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Breakfast was made, per order, from a great fixed menu. Hot or cold the food was tasty and nutritious. But, the best part was the spontaneous conversation with both staff and other travelers. We had another hotel booked and were looking at a 1.5 hour taxi ride. The Lady that prepares breakfast found another tenant that not only took us from hotel to hotel, at no charge, but was a most interesting person to travel with. Walter whom does seemingly all room cleaning and facility maintenance always has a smile. Please remember to tip these people. A little can really help a lot. Thanks Paola and your staff.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Very comfortable establishment in a quiet location with a reasonable size pool in a tropical setting. Good selection for breakfast and delicious. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Cons: A little overpriced but there again so is almost everything in Tamarindo.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Lovely pool with tropical landscaping. Our room was large with a king sized bed. Breakfast was included which included homemade baked goods and delicious granola parfaits.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I enjoyed the pool, the atmosphere, the breakfasts, and the people we met. I highly recommend this hotel. It was one of the best hotels that we stayed in while in Costa Rica.
Cons: There was nothing we didn’t like. It isn’t a 5 star but it is a charming place!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This is the 2nd year in a row we have stayed at Hotel Flores and in the same room - the apartment for 3. Plenty of space with a kitchenette, clean, and nice common area. The hotel is very convenient walk to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The best way to walk to the beach is to turn left at the first main intersection then take the first right. The beach is straight ahead. For shopping, stay to your right at the main intersection. The breakfast is made fresh and very good.
Cons: N/A
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great Breakfast, very helpful, fantastic location.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: Its location and spectacular view of Tamarindo beach
Cons: Some facility paint deterioration
Okay 5.0
Pros: The view of the pacific from the hotel was amazing and each room has a balcony which was very cool. The infinity pool was beautiful as well.
Cons: The hotel is open so the rooms are almost motel style. There were mosquitos and little bugs in the room. The rooms could have been cleaner- some of the walls were dirty.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The restaurant staff were incredible. Front desk not very interactive. Pool fabulous, rooms a little small and bathroom too small
Cons: Size of bathroom. No complimentary water in room

Pros: View, ubication, pool, all!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: view, pool, price, breakfast, attention
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The pool and the view was amazing. The bartender Jasdan was very kind and helpful.
Cons: Bathroom of the room was too basic and uncomfortable, there was no hot water
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The grounds are absolutely stunning. The pool, the view of the ocean, the lobby was tastefully decorated, it was stellar! The room was less glitzy but honestly had everything we needed (clean/renovated shower, clean beds, a super cute ocean view, etc.). The restaurant hotel was also pretty solid and the food was pretty good. And they have a great shuttle to downtown Tamarindo every half an hour so you don't lose out on being right in the beach town. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel!
Cons: We only stayed for a night so I didn't have time to find stuff to complain about, but the breakfast buffet wasn't really anything to right home about, and the path to the rooms was a little sketchy at night since it was outside. It gave motel vibes. Apart from that, a very solid stay!
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The pool, pool bar and the view are great.
Cons: My room had two burnt out bulbs. The bathroom had no counter top to put my toiletries. The room was very plain and did not hav a warm and cozy feel. I was told the breakfast started at 7. I went right at 7 because I had to get on the road for a 8am appointment, the waiter told me breakfast was at 7:30. so i waited thinking I will could grab a quick bite and go. When they finally opened the buffet, all of a sudden 20 people showed up and stood in line. I didn’t get my breakfast until 7:50. The breakfast was good, I just wish I was told of the 7:30 start so I could have planned my morning meeting accordingly.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: Nice view, nice staff, away from the huzzle of town, beautiful facility, shuttle to town very reliable
Cons: Music at the pool
Excellent 8.8
Good 7.1
Cons: Maintenance service, on the day my family checked in the room my children selected in had a leaking AC and hazardous. I called the lobby and asked if they can fix it, they said yes and it will be done by tomorrow. Second day, after coming back from activities the AC was the still leaking. I called again and notified them that the ac was still leaking, they told me they were sorry and will get it done by tomorrow. Third day came in and after coming back at 7pm it was still leaking. I personally went up to the front desk and complained that NOTHING done. They said once again said they're sorry and will get it done by tomorrow for sure or get another room. It was too late for my kids to switch rooms so I waited till the next day. Fourth day rules in, me and my kids walk in the room after 5 PM to see if anything is done. We end up finding the AC machine removed and left on the ground with dust all over the floor, now the room offiacly doesn't have enough ac. I had enough I ended up switching my kids room. Now instead of them only being 2 rooms starts they ended up on the other side of the building

Poor 1.0
Pros: Beach
Cons: Bedbugs in bed. Ice maker dirty and broken.tree branch so low bumped head and got a concussion. Staff were uncaring.
Good 6.0
Pros: The place has a big pool and the hotel is on the beach, which is amazing. The location is right at the calle central of town, and there are several facilities to the hotel - casino, restaurants and more.
Cons: For a luxurious hotel, the rooms were very simple. The place feel a bit dirty with the color of the stairs and the always open kitchen. We couldn't turn off air conditioner and the water in the toilet didn't work 100% of the time. The water in the shower wasn't hot and the pressure is not good. The breakfast was mediocre at best. The staff are not very friendly - not in the tours, reception or breakfast. They weren't able to cancel my deposit and now I need to do it through my bank. The hotel is beachfront but there are no facilities for the hotel at the beach.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Great fresh breakfast lots of selections, beautiful ocean view, Great staff.
Cons: Cold water shower pressure but still would not keep me from staying here.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: We had an amazing stay at the hotel diria. Staff was super friendly and helpful, can't beat the location.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that the included breakfast started at 0700am and so did all the excursions. A cold breakfast was provided instead, but if you have food allergies like I do, then there wasn't much of an option. It'd be nice if the excursions started 15 minutes later to grab some hot food. However, lunch was provided on the excursions.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: The food and staff were GREAT! Our room was clean and spacious, the safe gave us no problems and the location was amazing. There was construction during our stay but you could barely tell unless you were in the middle of It. I would hands down stay again.
Cons: Nothing to complain about.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: We loved the location, surfing, tour organizing, pools
Cons: Kids club would be great

Pros: Location,location ,location Food was great
Cons: A/c was very weak even after staff adjusted it. Beds outdated
Good 6.0
Cons: Front desk staff was not friendly and did not try to be accommodating to family traveling together. We had booked two rooms but was given two rooms that were on opposite ends of the resort.
Good 7.7
Pros: The location was great, the facilities were mostly cleaned (except for the one item I'll address in the next section), the staff was fairly helpful and we always felt secure.
Cons: About half of the breakfast items were uncovered so flies were constantly around or on the fruits and pastries. They clearly put a lot of effort into the morning preparation so I don't understand why they would leave so much of it uncovered. The hotel restaurant was pretty bad. The free breakfasts were good (except for the flies) but the lunches and dinners were very poor. The menu looks great but the actual food itself seemed very low quality. Luckily the hotel is surrounded by good restaurants so the poor hotel restaurant was not a huge issue for us.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Felling of being safe and close to beach
Cons: Nothing
Okay 5.4
Pros: Location is perhaps the most convenient in Tamarindo, the outdoor facilities by the beach are pretty ay-ok
Cons: The staff wasn't very accommodating / helpful. The king suite with balcony -- which seemed to be the nicest room available -- was mediocre. Quite a boring hotel experience overall for $250/night.
Excellent 8.5
Pros: Everything was excellent but the food, which was just ok - except the fresh Red Snapper we caught off shore that the hotel chef prepared Casado style. Clearly the highlight resort facility at Tamarindo, the staff was prompt, courteous, and attentive. We found excellent food an easy walk away, both beachfront brew house, fish shack, sushi, and high end seafood.
Cons: The complimentary breakfast and beach front bar food were average.
Excellent 8.2
Pros: Excellent location, access to beach, pools, included breakfast
Cons: Extremely loud and weak air conditioner. Terrible shower with extremely weak water pressure.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: You get a little bit of beach and a little bit resort and a little bit local town, all in one great, compact resort...though it is not small by any means. Great breakfast!
Cons: Nope. Liked it all a great deal.

Poor 1.0
Pros: Location
Cons: Dirty bathroom
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The location was excellent, very convenient access to the beach, friendly hosts, clean and comfortable rooms, great ambience. The manager at night was especially helpful and friendly even though he couldn't speak English bery fluently. He kindly helped to find a good parking spot and always greeted me warmly. Music started in the evening, and I absolutely loved the music, very much in sync with my playlist.
Cons: The only complaint I have was that the food was unnecessarily expensive. Also I ordered a tuna dish which was supposed to be around 8000 CRC, but was somehow charged double. In hindsight I should have cleared up the confusion, but I was in a hurry. Seeing the bill definitely came as a surprise. I recommend trying the soda which is near the hotel. You can walk along the beach to the right, get on to the road and a little ahead, get to the small soda near the supermarket by crossing the road. It had one of the best meals I had in CR and a delicious lemon and mint juice that comes in a glass bottle.
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: the service was very pleasant and in a good location, a few minutes walk from the center. but far enough away so as not to be affected by noise
Cons: the room smelled really bad of humidity, the bathroom was terrible, very poorly soundproofed and the walk to the beach really dirty and messy. the place is cheap.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Farther from main strip so quiet to sleep
Cons: No breakfast not the best wifi and beach access far and not that great
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Friendly staff, pretty spacious room with a TV and fridge. We had a little terrace with a nice view. They told us there really are crocodiles in the lagoon so it might be worth it to go on the tour :) We didn't have enough time for that. Go and watch the sunset on the Tamarindo beach!
Cons: We had some spiders, ants and nymphs in the room and the bathroom. Some customers might not like the loud music in the restaurant but they turn it off at 9pm. Couldn't fully close the curtains in our room.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Close to the water
Cons: No onsite food but they were remodeling fr that
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This was a very nice hotel right on the beach it was not super fancy but it had everything that you needed and the rooms were very clean and really no complaints about the place it was a very good value for the money
Cons: A couple of things that I didn’t like was that the curtains didn’t close to cover the entire door it was a little annoying you had to keep moving it from side to side the pillows were too thick although I might’ve been able to ask for another pillow and instead I just went out and bought one and I would’ve thought maybe they would have some umbrellas and chairs that you could take out to the beach but I’m probably being a little too picky
Mediocre 2.0
Cons: This review is not of the hotel conditions but in the attitude of the management and staff. After having our original trip canceled we rerouted to Liberia and booked three night at this hotel in the morning on a thursday. Five hours later (that same day) our flight was cancelled. The staff and management were unwilling to refund our money, even for the second and third night citing the policy that reservations must be cancelled 72 hours in advance. I felt that given the extenuating circumstances that a partial refund would have been a reasonable compromise. The take away message is not to book in advance on the day of arrival but just risk it.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: I liked that they were very helpful
Cons: The beaches are not so beautiful

Excellent 8.0
Pros: Value for money
Cons: Pool towels are only available at the reception which is like 200 ft away from the pool…. Like the last thing I want to do is walk a long distance all wet to get a towel…
Good 7.0
Cons: The breakfast wasn’t good, and there’s a not very nice smell close to the rooms
Excellent 8.0

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Location and also everything was very clean, the room had an amazing patio with sea view.
Cons: I would like to have more options for the breakfast and the restaurant available for lunch and dinner.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: They upgraded me based on my room request. The room was lovely and the staff great. I wish I could have stayed longer!!!
Cons: Help with my big suitcase to the room
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The staff was very nice with us. The swimming pool was clean.
Cons: Breakfast could have been better.
Mediocre 3.1
Cons: We had a room right by pool. We were assured the pool would be closed at 10:00 pm. People kept us up until 3:00 am. A few hours later it was loud people outside the door and shortly thereafter were cleaning ladies with trash cans making their rounds. It was horrible. I didn't stay the other two nights I booked and was told they weren't responsible for returns since I purchased with a third party. When my third party tried to reach them, they didn't answer all day.
Excellent 9.4
Pros: I really liked the location of the hotel, even though it wasn't directly on the beach. But it was right in front, less than a 10 minute walk!! The pool area has a beautiful view of the beach to relax and enjoy. The reception office is a bit of a walk to get to but they are all helpful. They gave me advice regarding traveling by bus. The room is nicely decorated and the shower is pretty big! The bed was a tad small but overall great room.
Cons: I didn't like that you couldn't order room service, or I did not know how. I also didn't like the size of the bed but I understand I booked by third party so bed type isn't guaranteed.
Good 6.2
Pros: Location location location close to nice Tamarindo beach! Staff was cordial and rooms were decent with the breakfast reasonable.
Cons: Very Noisy adults only type party at bar on Friday night- could not sleep till past 2.15! Not what I had bargained for when booking the place. Facilities are ok- you get what you pay for.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Really good value for the money. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds are generally fairly charming. Convenient, decent little view of the water from the restaurant pool area. The room was fully adequate. Housekeeping was good. When I requested an ironing board it came very promptly. Not right in town but a very short walk from the beach. Good restaurants within easy walking distance either way down the road. Bar serves plenty of beer and fine drinks.
Cons: The rooms and overall grounds are a bit tired and dated. This isn't a high-end luxury experience. The bar/pool/restaurant are equally sort of mid-range. Nothing wrong with them, but not swanky or particularly nice. The restaurant/bar is called Crazy Monkey... that should give you a notion. Just need to have appropriate expectations.
