We are a family with three kids 3, 7, 8 and have been living in Tamarindo for the past month. Our holiday from our holiday to Arenal was just what we needed. I was attracted by the fact that there was room that could accommodate all five of us and a pool and a kitchen. From the moment we arrived... More

Hotel Bijagua is a little oasis just outside La Fortuna town centre (roughly 15 minutes walk), the grounds are nicely landscaped and well maintained and include a pool. The room we had was clean, comfortable and spacious. David the owner was very friendly and gave us loads of help with what activities to do and arranging them.

We spent 3 days in one of Hotel Bijagua's rooms with kitchenette - perfect. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and great for our family of 2 adults and 2 young kids. Well located too, near some shops and restaurants but also a couple of km out of the main bustle of touristy La Fortuna. Highlight, though, has to be David the... More

Nice pool and nice garden and excellent view of the vulcano. Next to a supermarket. It is good idea if you have a car since the town is a bit... More

We stayed one night and I wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful garden and pool area with a fabulous view of the volcano. The owners were super friendly and accommodating. They even brought an umbrella out to our car when we returned and it was raining!

Family owned. Very awesome people. Great recommendations, El Coloso right across the street being one of them. I'm not sure I would be interested in staying anywhere else when I return. They have a pool which is well kept and a common area for cooking. Relatively quiet and private.

We really did like this hotel. David was so very helpful and kind. He helped line up excursions and rides whenever we needed one. He even gave me and my daughter a lift into town and picked us up on the way to the waterfall. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen is really clean and convenient. The only reason... More

First they have an outdoor kitchen and grocery store next to the hotel so you can cook your own food that's awesome. Next David is the nicest person ever and he speaks very good English, he's smart and I had such a great time getting to know him and his family. This place is great if you don't want to... More
