You hit the nail on the head with your praise for Yesenia. She has been with the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas for over 10 years, and is quite popular with the guests (and other staff) because of her friendly demeanor and excellent housekeeping skills. Of course, the people who work at the bar also go the extra mile with... More

There’s no better way to show your approval of our hotel and what we do here than to have our guests come back over and over again. We think we are perfectly suited to the needs of surfers, especially with our great ocean views. You can check the surf breaks from the comfort of your room, or out by the... More

This hotel is not the place to stay if you're traveling with family and wanting to get sleep at an average time like most people before 2:30am!!!
