Refreshing clean pool. Kitchenette with all needed suplies. Good food at the restaunt. Just 15min away from Tamarindo and other nearby beaches So we were able to visit lots of places and return at night. It is not that close from the beach (about 700mts away)but because of this we got a nice place for a lower price. Avellanas It's... More

I've been there just few days but we felt at home. Great atmosphere, quite clean accommodations, gentle crew, easy to get Avellanas parking. Perfect getaway to stay close to the southern spots. Already planning to be back!

I rarely feel the urge to write reviews, but being that this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed at, I feel compelled to tell others to stay away. First of all, it advertises on its website that, "our surf camp in Playa Avellanas is a boutique surf hotel located 3 minutes from the beach entrance." Yes,... More

Showed up here for a reserved few nights in Avellanas. Not anywhere to park upon arrival, lot was full. Blocked some folks in and talked to the staff. They didn't know we were coming, despite providing them our confirmation papers via email previously. They worked to clean a room quickly to accomodate us, and were very apologetic. Had dinner in...

We wish we could say the same nice things about this little hotel as the other reviewers, and certainly the owners are friendly, but we arrived yesterday afternoon to find the hotel restaurant/bar are in full construction, with a loud air compressor going, hammering and sawing of metal (ouch!). The owner assured us that the construction would be finished that... More

We stayed three nights in June and really enjoyed the atmosphere of S.C. Mediterraneo. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the pool and hammocks were inviting and the owner, Igor was exceptionally hospitable and went out of his way to make our stay perfect in every way. Plus, his cheese and mushroom pizza is amazing!! We definitely want... More

I was here for 4 nights, exploring Avellanas and the nearby beaches. Mediterraneo is a great base camp. It has all you need, plus a great location. I also wanted to give surfing a try. I ended up taking 3 classes and by the end of the last class I was surfing. What a joy! If you are going to... More
