Once you figure out your location on the coast, the location is a HUSGE PLUS. The bathrooms are modern and while the rooms are spartan, they are clean and more than satisfactory. I wish we spent more time here than at the JW!

Stayed for a week and enjoyed it. Lovely place to stay if you want to be away from the noise and crowds of Tamarindo Beach. Recommend a car but taxis easy to call for. Service and food was excellent at the restaurant. Staff was amazing. Rooms are simple and clean. Pool is clean and all yours for the most part.... More

Came to support my partner who is taking a free dive course at Free Dive Costa Rica (which he says is fantastic). Left the expensive world of Nosara where we have a room waiting. Found this sweet comfortable place ....especially for the price. Pool area is lovely. Rooms are so so but for $80/night in high season worth every penny.... More

This hotel is perfectly situated 15 minutes outside of Tamarindo. The town of tamarindo is nuts and this hotel give you a break from the noise and craziness. The pool is beautiful and the villa rooms are very nice. The staff is great and helped me set up a few activities. It's a good spot to stay.

1) The location from beautiful beaches, such as Conchal, Flamingo and Tamarindo is perfect by car and there is a small grocery store next to the hotel. 2) The entire place (including our room #12) was in excellent conditions. You can tell easily how much they care about everything. 3) There is only one restaurant that is independent from Best... More

I would recommend this place if you want a quiet place to relax. It is close to the beaches as it is only a short drive away. The staff that work there are very friendly and the chef is incredible . People come from all over to enjoy his food. The sailing trip that they recommend is amazing. I really... More

As a former hotel owner/operator and active airline pilot, I have a lot of experience with hotels. Staffing is critical. My wife and I hastily threw together a quick trip to Costa Rica. Our first choice was to fly into San Jose, but the flights were full, and we always fly standby. So, we decided to try our luck in... More

We signed up in haste, as everywhere was booked over the holiday week post-New Year, and thought we'd booked the Best Western Vista overlooking the beach in Tamarindo. We were disappointed when we arrived, but in fact it turned out to be better. Tamarindo was grotty and touristy. At this hotel, the big pool in the center was a lovely... More

My 18yo daughter and I spent a week here and enjoyed every minute. I was very glad that we stayed away from the downtown Tamarindo area. The hotel is along a major highway(2 lanes!) but only 10 minutes away from gorgeous beaches, 1hr away from Liberia and 10 minutes away from downtown Tamarindo. Younger people might enjoy being in the... More
