The chef at this particular Best Western produces dishes that are the best gourmet prepared food I have ever encountered for any price. Insane value. Period. Hotel is clean and safe and the staff are very polite and happy. There are closer places to the beach, at least stop here on a weekend day for a meal. Better food than... More

The rooms were ok, bright and sunny. The plumbing could use an upgrade and the bed wasn't that comfortable, but overall everything was good. The staff was friendly though they didn't have a lot of tour information. The hotel is ~5miles from town or the nearest beach. It is at least a 2hr walk in the dry heat of the... More

We spend 4 days with an older couple friend of us in this hotel at the end of January; it was a pleasant surprise, compare to the rest of the hotel on the area. You will need car to move around as the transportation and location are 15 minutes from the noise of Tamarindo, however the hotel is all tranquility.... More

Great Hotel. Friendly receptions staff. Food was good although service could have been a little better. Extremely clean rooms. Pool was great. Highly recommend it if you want something outside Tamarindo (selling point for us), the drive to Tamarindo is not far. Great value

We stayed here one night, couldn't fault it. Its a good 10 minute drive from tamerindo so id suggest only staying there if you have your own transport. Its way too far to walk. The room was spotless and modern, staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was just the standard buffet, nothing special. For the price you can't... More

We stayed here for four nights. At check in we were questioning our decision, however the place grew on us quickly. Small simple rooms, but the set up is great and the entire place is very clean. We had two pool side rooms and enjoyed some day tours and always enjoyed returning to the hotel in the afternoon. The breakfast... More

We spent one night in a hell hole and, desperate to get out, we booked this place. They were running a super cheap special online and we, frankly, didn't care. Anything would be better than where we came from. TOTAL SHOCKER: this place is GORGEOUS. It is near the beach? No, it is a drive, but it is so quiet,... More

Very we'll kept and clean hotel, wonderful pool, however rooms are small and dated. I think this is normal hear. The staff are nice and the service is good.
