We spent a month in Costa Rica over this last December/January. We started in Tamarindo and then ended back in Tamarindo at the Hotel Domus Kahuna. We were travelling with a vehicle and three kids 15, 13 and 6. Our suite had a/c with two rooms with queen beds and a very comfortable pull-out couch. We had a full size... More

We enjoyed our stay at Domus Kahuna. Had a corner two bedroom with kitchenette . The clean pool was just steps from our cute outdoor dining area. Great coffee and complimentary breakfast was served each day. Very nice and accommodating staff ...always willing to help or answer any questions. New sheets and towels would be a nice update ....the price... More

Great place! Safe. Cozy. Great little pool. Comes with breakfast. Eggs, beans and rice. Coffee. Security onsite. Safes in room. Very simple and really clean. The staff is really helpful too. Across the way is a little market to grab bottled water and fruit. Walk to the beach and bars.

I was a little doubtful of staying here because the street seemed a little sketchy and the hotel was very small. But the staff and the overall location of this place made our stay amazing! We stayed for 3 nights in one of the ground floor smaller rooms. Paolo, the owner gave us a great deal as we had just... More

Paolo the owner is really nice, the public area with the pool is awesome and fun! the rooms are modest but ok in general and equipped with everything you need - deposit box, ceiling fan, air conditioner, fridge, TV. I didnt book online, just came and asked if there is a free room, and the price was cheaper then on... More

We checked in on a Sunday and stayed seven days. Check in was quick and easy, as was checking out. The accommodations are everything you need, but may be lacking some of the amenities you want. The air conditioner is subpar to american standards, but provides the relief you need from the Costa Rican heat. I had read other reviews... More

We stayed here over Christmas and New Year's in 2012/2013 and had an amazing time. Paolo was such a great host and very accommodating. Loved the layout of the rooms surrounding the pool and yet each patio felt private with it's own hammock and table. We stayed in the two bedroom and traveled with our two little kids, ages 4...

The cabinas are great, with nice small garden and pool. The location is good, walking distance to the beach. Bed is comfortable, shower is good. Just breakfast was poor. The girl who made breakfast was a very grumpy

I'm from Westchester, New York and traveled solo to Costa Rica and Domus Kahuna during the high/dry season in the 3rd week of January, 2014. This was my first time traveling to Costa Rica and decided to spend my time here at Domus Kahuna in Tamarindo, which was probably one of the best choices I made in arranging my vacation.... More
