The good: great location on the beach (well for half of the hotel - the other half is across a really busy main road). I liked their pizza and I suppose the breakfast was ok and the gym was fine. The bad: the staff don't seem to like working here. Reception was really busy and the bar staff treat you...

We were so looking forward to a break after travelling round Costa Rica but this hotel is not 4star by any means. There is only one restaurant within the hotel complex unless you go on to the main road to eat. The breakfasts had no bacon and there was very little fruit available. Thank goodness we upgraded to an ocean...

Note we were there a week before Christmas so it was DEAD. We had the place to ourselves and were advised that in a few days after we departed, the place would be a zoo. Beautiful property. Adult only pool was a nice to have option. The main pool is in the center of the resort but across the street...

Do not reserve or accept a room that hasn't been remodeled. At check-in we were given a bungalow with adjoining rooms and as a party of 5 we were delighted. That changed in an instant. One room was missing headboards. Our shower didn't work. The air conditioner was broken (and Tamarindo is HOT in January). The toilet in the adjoining...

It's one thing to be prepared for the old and tired room, dirty breakfast, raccoons running on the roof all night, and broken screen that let in crickets and spiders. I rarely take the time to write a bad review and was prepared for these based on previous negative reviews. The real nightmare was our last night's stay when the...

The Tamarindo Diria is located on a fantastic stretch of beach. We stayed in a 1st floor ocean front room. While the view was beautiful please know if you stay in the southern wing, your view is somewhat obstructed by a stone barrier that separates the beach from the hotel property. I don't consider this a deal breaker since I'm...

This hotel has two parts, one across the main strip with two pools (one adult) and the main hotel, pool and beach. The reception make no issue of giving the worst rooms for anyone booking through expedia. Rooms vary greatly and very few have sea views, Those that do are near the restaurant and main pool, along with everyone sunbathing...

We were pleased with Hotel Tamarindo Diria, beautiful location on the beach and a great complimentary breakfast daily. Room wasn't quite ready when we arrived but overall it was a good experience. A perfect first visit to Costa Rica, half the time on the beach in Tamarindo and half the time in Arenal.

It was the best Ocean View room and we did experience some noise from the streets but we weren't in the hotel room that much. There was thia humongous lizard roaming the landscape which was like their local celebrity. The room was so beautiful we had the best porch and were in a excellent location. Short walking distance to the...

We had a third floor room with a balcony view of the beach. The grounds were always DLL kept and all of the staff were friendly. Pool was a nice option in addition to the beach. Easy walk to all the shops and restaurants in the town.
