Our family of 5 spent a week here in July 2016 and it was a great, great base for us to all relax together, surf and have fun. The thing about Tamarindo is that you don't need a car. You can spend all day wandering on and off the beach, renting surf boards and boogie boards, and going in and out of juice bars and cafes. This condo was perfect for us. It is really spread out so we all got quiet places to hang. The furniture is in great condition and the beds and linens and towels are very nice. It's got a great roof deck for morning coffee and to do a surf check in your pajamas! We saw and heard howler monkeys everyday in the big park behind the condo and in the morning watched flocks of green parrots while we sat up on the roof deck. We bought groceries right across the street, or went out. Our family with young teens spent the evenings playing pool together at the Roof Bar just down the block, or lounging in the pool at the condo after dark. Very chill. If you are looking for a funky beach surfing vibe, Tamarindo is your town. And this condo lets you stroll right down to the beach in 2 blocks, without the noise of the main drag. You can rent a car or hire a driver to take you to other surf spots like Grande and Avellanas for a good day trip.
