We have the utmost pleasure in giving Villa Andalucia five stars. Not only is the accommodation spectacular but hosts Gary and Jolene will do everything they can to make your stay superb. They are the most wonderful couple! We stayed March 2015 in Casita Seville, a very well appointed suite with a lovely garden. You will find it hard to... More

We recently spent 4 nights at Gary and Jolene's beautiful casita. We lucked into this place due to a last minute cancellation and I am so glad we did. This is, hands down, the best VRBO/B & B/hotel we have ever been to. The property itself is amazing. They have done such a lovely job on the grounds. It is... More

Villa Andalucia is the only place I would ever want to stay in Tamarindo! The property is beautiful, functional, and serene. Gary and Jolene offer the best service around. I don't know how they do it but they immediately draw you into their family and make you feel as though you've arrived home. The atmosphere is kept to a peaceful... More

We cannot ever remember being away from home yet feeling so at home! Gary and Jolene could not have been more gracious and their son, Brooks, could not have been more helpful - from the moment he picked us up at the airport to the adventurous Turtle Tour he took us on later in the week! Their home is exquisitely... More

Stayed in the Casita Seville. The suite had a large and fully functional kitchen. Groceries were a short 5 minute walk away or Gary the owner would take you down the road for a more complete shopping experience. The bed was comfortable. Mostly Spanish on the T.V. but who cares. There was a large backyard with a gazebo and two... More

We stayed at Villa Andalucia in the Casita Seville for 2 amazing weeks. We can't say enough about this piece of paradise. Our casita was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. Our hosts, Jolene and Gary were gracious, friendly and very helpful. They welcome their guests like old friends. The property is absolutely beautiful and very peaceful. Maria's breakfasts are...

My husband and I found Villa Andalucia on trip advisor while looking for a place to stay for our honeymoon, and I am so glad we did! This place was cozy, Jolene has quite the knack for design and it made us feel like we were right at home! Our room had an adorable kitchen that we stalked with food... More

Where to begin?? We have just returned from 7 days at Villa Andalucia. From the moment Brooks, Gary and Jolene's son, picked us up at the airport we knew we had chosen the right spot for our winter getaway. Villa Andalucia was the perfect place for us to get to know Tamarindo and meet some of the people that call... More

If you plan to stay in Tamarindo, you stay at Villa Andalucia. Period. Gary and Jolene are absolutely the kindest people you will ever meet. They do absolutely everything in their power to ensure that you are having an absolute blast during your stay. Initially, my wife and I (this was the first stop of our honeymoon) were uncertain about... More

Just returned from Costa Rica, including 6 nights at Jolene and Gary's beautiful Villa Andalucía. A very special sanctuary 5 minutes walk from downtown Tamarindo. Jolene has spent an incredible amount of time to include every detail in her design of Villa Andalucía. The rooms are beautiful and very well appointed with everything you could possible need. The architecture, gardens,... More
