The rooms are modern and well maintained. There is a locking gate as well. The location is central to restaurants and stores. The pool is nice and the noise does not echo. There is a super market near by for convenience.

A lovely little complex with comfortable rooms and a great shower. Attention to detail was appreciated with the mossie netting on all the windows and a draft excluder on the door to keep out any larger insects. We were not far from the beach, but it was a quiet spot, except when the local troop of howler monkeys came through,...

Tamarindo is a pricey place, and so is VM for what it offers. But the room was clean, shower is nice and location well fine. They don't offer breakfast and the pool was a little green (they say it's a free cloride treatment).

If you for some reason need to stay in Tamarindo, off from the peak season noise but still a short walk to beach, shopping and restaurants - then this is a place we highly recommend. Our reason to stay in Tamarindo was a reunion, and it's hard to imagine another place that could be more suitable to bring generations together....

The rooms are charming and perfectly clean. The private terrace with hamac adds charm and comfort, without mentioning the swimming pool at the center of the garden. The hosts are wonderful people, who helped us more than we can say when we lost our passeports and money. I recommend this place for it may be the best place in all...

And that can be a good thing. I, sadly, am zero for three on that list of questions. I was looking for someplace affordable in Tamarindo. Villa Macondo is affordable and Amy, the front desk person, is super nice. The rooms are clean(ish). The set up is okay with private rooms with private baths surrounding the pool. Sort of a...

We stayed for 5 nights. Eve and Sam were lovely!! Helped with everything we needed! You can take towels for the pool/ beach which is great. We used the kitchen and I have to say it could be better (not the cleanest). The easy going vibe was great and we didn't even need an ac. Thumbs up!

Villas Macondo provided all the basic necessities for a nice stay in Tamarindo. I stayed in a private room with two beds, a fan, and no AC. There was a lock and small refrigerator in the room. All the rooms are in a circle around the pool. The location of the hotel is perfect, on a dirt road right behind...
