Cala Luna is one of the most luxurious resorts/hotels in Tamarindo. The property is removed from the main part of town but they make sure you don't miss out on the experience. The staff are great. The food and drinks at both the restaurant and poolside bar are fantastic. The amenities and accommodations are first-rate. If you're more of a... More

Cala Luna is a little off the beaten path, it's about 1/4 mile from the actually down town area but it's worth it. We were greeted with welcome drinks and a fresh towel, they actually brought mine to me in the car because the night before I had fallen and hurt my ankle, so my boyfriend checked in and inquired...

After staying in several cities in CR, this was far and above the best hotel, with unbelievable customer service. The owner has a farm, about 30 minutes away called "La Senda." If you can go, I would recommend it. We witnessed more monkeys and wildlife there, on her 74 acres, than anywhere in Costa Rica. Just a beautiful person to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Cala Luna.... We had a two bedroom villa and it had its own pool. The villa was well appointed, spacious and stylish - we have stayed in some luxury brands internationally that were not as good. The nerve centre of the hotel with reception, main pool and restaurant was also pleasant. The food was very good quality.... More

Stayed for 3 nights in a very nice room. Some maintenance problems but fixed quickly and were apologetic. Two nice restaurants and pool area. Not on the beach - about 5 minutes away. Taxi's easy to get into town for $5. Quiet comfort. Breakfasts were very nice and different every day. This was the off season so not very busy.

Calla Luna was lovely; our villa was beautiful and perfect for our family of four. We loved the pool, the evening cocktails on the beach and the breakfast was delicious. The staff was all very nice but it seemed like there was something missing from the service - as if they were a little afraid of management and not empowered... More

We highly recommend Cala Luna. We typically stay at 5 star hotels (Four Seasons type) so we are totally spoiled but Cala Luna was a great match! There are not many luxury spots in or near Tamarindo and Cala Luna fit the bill. The service was excellent, it was extremely clean, quiet and private. Although the rooms are not ocean... More

From the beginning until check-out, everything was a perfect experience. Our villa was very spacious, extremely well equipped and very pleasant thanks to our own pool. A perfect combination especially for a family stay. The restaurant also provided us a great culinary experience with a cozy outside sitting. Congratulations to the efficient staff and management. We all love Cala Luna.

Who ever gave a good review about this place clearly has not traveled much. Yeah it's pretty and calm and romantic....It's all just a front to hide all the problems this place has!! Besides the fact that my friends booked and when we got here they didn't find our reservations. Even with the confirmation number they couldn't find it. They... More

After all threats of writing us a bad review on Trip Advisor we are not really surprised to see your remarks. We are sorry that you experienced your stay as unpleasant, especially after we could not accomodate (for free) the three Costa Rican ladies that were travelling with you. Since you think our food sucks I invite you, because you... More

Summary - I would recommend this place for the right people with the right expectations. This experience is not for everyone. First the positive. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and it is very private and secluded. We are a family of 5 (three teenagers) and stayed there from the 15th through the 19th of July. Our villa was... More
