We loved our 5 day stay. The hotel has a stylish yet unstuffy relaxed atmosphere, no TVs which we appreciated, helpful informative staff, perfect beach location, lots of choice at breakfast. Wildlife on site. Bathrooms are a bit dated but that didn't detract al all from overall enjoyment at all. Look forward to returning.

This hotel was even more special than what I expected. Our family of 4 stayed 4 nights in beach front suites. The hotel is located away from town (though you can walk there easily enough, the distance makes for more privacy at the hotel beach). Gorgeous sunsets every night. We really enjoyed taking surf lessons and practicing surfing just yards... More

This place is a gem. We stayed for 5 nights and loved all of it! Location is great. The hotel is directly on the beach and so well designed that it felt like we had it all to ourselves. Bungalow was simple, elegant and supremely comfortable. We loved seeing all the monkeys and iguanas and even saw a whale one... More

We had a fabulous room with monkeys in the trees on our arrival. Right on the beech with a fabulous pool, this hotel is rather special. I had a Collagen facial which made my skin feel fabulous. We had a second floor room which was huge and perfect for three of us. The food was nice in the hotel and... More

The staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was on the second floor near the beach and there is nothing I can complain about it. With a big balcony, quiet, spacious, clean, comfortable to the point that you don't even want to go to the pool. Everything was working, air conditioner, hot water, coffee maker. This is one of...

We just returned from a one-week stay in Tamarindo. Before booking our hotel, I spent a lot of time considering various alternatives in Tamarindo and also in the Papagayo area. Capitan Suizo exceeded our expectations and turned out to be the perfect place for us. The staff there is exceptional, greeting us (and our children) by name whenever they saw... More

This boutique hotel was gorgeous; the only "jungle" experience that we had. The grounds are meticulous, stunning! The language barrier can be difficult. A good amount of staff speak fluently, but if you need to speak with maintenance or maids, Spanish only. That being said, all of the staff are so friendly! From the front desk and concierge all the... More

Loved the people- all who are at desk. The rooms (some) are closer to the water than one would think is possible, on a well guarded and quiet cut de sac away from all the crowds in town, but not so far one could not easily stroll down the beach or road during the night time. Concierge was amazing. So... More
