We had our wedding at the Hotel Capitan Suizo in November and we could not be happier!

My wife and I, along with our two children (11 and 9), stayed for a week at Capitan Suizo in late November. We highly recommend this wonderful hotel. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately groomed. We stayed in one of the basic rooms but found it spacious and comfortable. And off our balcony, we had a view of the mini-jungle...

Beautiful landscaping and rooms. Friendly staff. Incredible breakfast included. Fun to have rainforest right there. Pretty beach. Surf is much smaller than river mouth, but walk to good surf is reasonable. Away from the hustle of the main beach at Tamarindo. Easy walk at night to dinner spots.

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights in November 2016 in a superior room.

The room was spacious with comfortable bed and nice shower. Our room was cleaned every day...

First floor room close to pool and restaurant. Breakfast (included) was just ok - same exact items x3 days. Front desk, concierge and restaurant staff very helpful and accommodating. Grounds beautiful and well maintained. Room immaculate. Rooms were perfect - no need to spend extra money on bungalow!

Rooms were excellent. It was very quiet and just far enough away from Tamarindo that we could not hear the town noise. Just a few steps from the beach. Staff was very accommodating. I would recommend staying here again if I was headed to Tamarindo.
