We used Tamarindo as our stop on the day of our flight in and the night before our flight out of Costa Rica due to the proximity to Liberia. Our stay here was perfect - no need to get into a car, with a relaxing garden, the beach right there and a variety of stores and restaurants nearby. Rooms were...

First off, Tamarindo is kind of a touristy place, so don't expect your hotel dollars to go as far as elsewhere in Costa Rica. Although not perfect, I thought it was pretty good value. Some random points: The room: I actually thought it was very clean despite what some other reviews have stated. No roaches although lots of mosquitoes. I...

This hotel is nothing fancy, but the location is fantastic! Just a short walk from town and right on the beach - doesn't get much better than that! We rolled in early and the gal at the front was as friendly and accommodating as one could want. We dropped off our bags and walked out the back to the beach....

The exterior of this hotel really doesn't do it justice. However, once you walk down the little stairwell to the front desk, we were pleasantly pleased. Trisha was very friendly and thorough even letting us see the available room before booking. We had a basic, but comfortable room with sliding glass door that walked right out to the courtyard complete...

I have stayed here twice, last time I was solo 3 years ago, and now this time with my wife. The room was fine, though the AC unit made a lot of noise, as did another one on outside of wall. But the issue here was the new bar downstairs, place music non stop, and we had a balcony sea...

We are very happy with our stay. We stayed in Ocean view room number two and we had our own little terrace and it was amazing to wake up in the morning and see the ocean. Nice garden and clean rooms. Very friendly and helpful woman in the front desk. Very close to the beach. Breakfast not included, but very...

The front desk agent was over the moon nice. She was welcoming and gave us lots of wonderful information. The bakery was delicious! We had breakfast and it was good, the bakery provided the bread and pastries. YUMMY!

We only stayed one night here but had a very good experience. The food in the bakery is excellent as well as the dinner in the restaurant. Our host arranged for a surfing lesson and kayak fishing trip, both of which were very fun. Although there is not easy access to the water, the view is beautiful and very quiet....

Visited Tamarindo and stayed here. It was excellent for the price and Trish was fun to talk with. There is a group of Howler Monkeys that hang out in the trees next door. The rooms were clean and had great beach / ocean views. Location is great! Recommended.
