we reserved a week here and was somewhat suspicious based on the low price. Federico - the operator- did a great job communicating and was as friendly/helpful as could be expected. however, there were too many physical defects in our apartment for us to stay more than one night. this may be partially attributed to it being our first time/night...

I stayed at the Sunset Inn last week with my boyfriend. We stayed in one of the smaller rooms on the property, even without a kitchen we managed to cook up some meals on the hot plate supplied in the room. There is a supermarket next door so it is easy to get groceries. The room was clean and exactly... More

Very disappointed in the accomodations. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite - NO HOT WATER for the 8 days we were there. The bathrooms smelled like sewage. The dishes in our kitchen needed to be washed before we could use the.The beds are old and hard - linens were stale smelling and our comforter looked as if it had... More

Sunset Inn is literally our home away from home when visiting Tamarindo. It is an excellent option when traveling with family and in our case, even DOGS. The staff is extremely friendly and the location is super safe. The inn is a block away from the beach with a convenient supermarket down the street. The suites are spacious and the... More

I stayed here for a month and loved it! The hotel has a cozy feel and the people were very friendly. It is a smaller hotel and you really get to know all your neighbors. I made so many great friends during my stay. The manager is very hands on and will correct any issues you may have and is... More

Great little place with fully equipped suites. You'll make new friends and you're a short stroll to a world-class beach! The owner is hands-on and will make sure that you are comfortable and happy to be a guest at his cozy Inn.

When we arrived we were greeted by a shirtless guy with bloodshot eyes and a flee covered dog. The pool was filthy and the whole place reeked of sewer. The stove and fridge were covered in grime and the bed sheets had cigarette burns. There was a hole in the bathroom floor. The window by the shower was missing and... More

I should start by saying that this guest made several false statements (the pool is always in great conditions, there's never been any smell whatsoever in our aparthotel, the only whole in the bathroom is the shower drain) My friend Morice was helping me out the day this client arrived, he is a surfer and probably was coming from surfing...

Federico made the stay incredible. There were several occasions where he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to ensure an awesome trip. The hotel surrounds a nice courtyard with a pool and great landscaping. The beach is super close and we had a small grocery within sight which added to the convenience. I... More

Stayed in Tdo for a night and had to get away from the party vibe of the city and get some better and less crowded surf. My boyfriend and I found Sunset Inn online and booked a couple of nights. (FYI it's ~20$ cheaper to pay the owner directly and not book online. Call ahead.) The first room we stayed... More

We ignored the bad revues and took a chance on the Sunset Inn...bad idea. Luckily we did not prepay the entire month of our dream vacation to Costa Rica. When we first arrived we noticed that the window in our bathroom was missing. Not broken or under repair....just gone. Federico assured us that it would be fixed by tomorrow the... More
