Such a lovely small beachfront hotel - this really is a special place with friendly staff and great service. Our room was only a few metres from the swimming along a short colourful garden path. The swim-up pool to the bar was fabulous and you can literally step off your lounger and walk a few metres onto the beach. There... More

We had the opportunity to spend 2 nights here last week. The staff and grounds were A Plus. The first night there was an iguana between the ceiling and roof. They did not get it out but did upgrade us to another room. Happy hour drinks are $3.50 and there is a menu but they don't cheat on the drinks.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for the Tamarindo Marathon. First, for the runners out there, do not stay here for the marathon as there are many road closures and it's too far away for the race. Best to stay right in Tamarindo. That said, the hotel, staff, cleanliness, grounds, pool and everything was fantastic! Decent prices for food and drinks... More
