Great value for money. Rooms are simple but big, clean and with aircon. The owners are really nice and very helpful. You can reach Tamarindo centre within a 5 minutes walk, the beach is just across the street. I have nothing to complain about.

We stayed with Alisson @ FT's during our time in Tamarindo, everything was absolutely wonderful. There was NO BUGS, the room and sheets were clean. Anything we would need she would help out with. Great host. Also fantastic location in Tamarindo just opposite side of the ocean.

By far a great bang for your buck. Perfect location across the street from the beach, restaurant onsite, comfortable bed and an awesome air conditioner. Had to actually shut it off one night and use the fan. Wonderful owners. Our flight was delayed by almost 12 hrs & Jay stayed up to give us our keys and made sure we... More

FT's is an amazing place to stay. As a single female traveling alone, I felt completely safe there. The rooms were really clean and a cleaning service comes a few times a week to take care of your trash, etc. Also, softest sheets ever!!!! Comfortable beds and good pillows too. I was in a room that could have slept 3... More

We stayed in Tamarindo for a month else where but ate at their restaurant more than a handful of times. We met the owners from Calgary who are great! They saw us out back checking out the Cabinas for a future trip and gave us a tour of the rooms. For the price, location, and friendliness of the staff, you... More

We got into town late and were having trouble finding a reasonably priced hostel when we found FT's. The owners are really nice and they went out of there way to make us feel comfortable.

FT's is a great restaurant / Hostel style accodations in the core of Tamarindo. After some other travelling mishaps, we arrived at FT's and the owners were extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The location is very clean, the bed and sheets are much closer to what you would expect at a resort, and the food is fantastic.... More

We spent 4 nights at FT's, and had a blast the whole time! Jay and Allison are amazing owners and really made us feel at home. The sheets on the bed were super soft, and we even got clean bath towels. Don't forget to enjoy a burrito, or many at their restaurant!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
FT's Tamarindo offers 6 great rooms, right across the street from the best surf break in Tamarindo. Rooms include A/C, TVs and private bathrooms. It's by far the best deal in town and best location for your money. Once again, you're across the street from the beach and just steps from all of the shopping, clubbing and dining that Tamarindo has to offer. The rooms are extremely clean and completely secure. ... more   less
