I REALLY enjoyed FTs!!! It's a cute spot across the street from witches rock. The staff and owner are amazing! Made me feel very welcomed. Prices were good and I ate the fish tacos which were delicious, much better than the ones at the restaurants directly on the beach. They even have a pool table. Super fun place!

Food was fantastic and to me was a good value for the price. I had the Casado with pork and steak. On two separate nights and a shrimp burrito on the third night. Very laid back atmosphere lots of locals were eating there and having a beer after work. The food was great and the service was wonderful

A build your own burrito, how can you go wrong? You cant! Its delicious, a very tasty and very fulfilling meal. Try it with the shrimp or steak, was delicious. And you cannot go wrong with the prices which are quite reasonable compared to other menus on the Tamarindo strip who take a little advantage of the area being very... More

FTs is a bar come restaurant which serves amazing Mexican food with six private rooms round the back. The owners Allyson and Jay had only had it for about six months when we stayed over Christmas, but we could see the hard work and love they've put into bringing the place back to life; all rooms are freshly painted with...

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
