We stayed at this property for 8 nights and were very pleased with the access if gave us to many different beaches and areas for our exploration. The pools were great (two kids pools and one adult lap pool) and having access for BBQs in the common areas was great…but note that there is a charge for non-owners. Our unit... More

I've been traveling extensively for the last 10 years or so and fell in love with Costa Rica's people, climate and beauty. After checking out multiple areas to perhaps settle in, I found the Gold coast (the series of towns and beaches along the north Pacific coast) to be the place most suitable for my family with its beautiful beaches,...

We had use of a condo at The Oaks through a friend. We are a family of five and the unit perfectly suits our basic needs. The three pools are great and all the units have modern appliances and conveniences. Also appears quite safe as there is someone monitoring all guests entering and leaving the development. The promotional materials mention... More

We loved Costa Rica, after travelling for 18 months it is the best country we have visited. We work as we travel and the Oaks provided a great base as it had a good internet connection and very comfortable condos to spend a lot of time in. The pool & BBQ area was great for a break and then you... More

We spent six weeks at The Oaks. The condos are well furnished, clean and beautiful. The grounds are perfectly kept and beautiful. The office staff was the best. Always ready to help with car rental, tour and restaurant recommendations, and with a smile. We recommend it to anyone that is looking for a quiet place. It is a little far... More

The Oaks Tamarindo is set back a few miles from the beach and the actual town itself and the grounds and the condos are designed beautifully. As nice as the condos are, the staff is even better. They really are a GREAT example of what customer service means when you REALLY need it. I couldn't thank the staff enough for... More

I personally would say that I'm not the biggest fan of Tamarindo Beach. It has become widely turist-y, and honestly the beach is not great at all. However, I think what makes Tamarindo Beach a recurrent attraction is its environment. Lots of international people everywhere, good restaurants and pretty cool nightlife. So on the minus side, The Oaks makes it... More

The Oaks Tamarindo condos form a beautiful set up in the middle of Costa Rican nature; this gated community has an excellent 24h security system and is surely one of the safest condo areas in the region. Moreover, the area is well maintained, both apartments and the yard with three swimming pools are in top notch condition. The Oaks is... More

My wife and I started our honeymoon at The Oaks Tamarindo and we couldn't have asked for more. The location is perfectly positioned within 10-15 minutes of about 6 or 7 different beaches, all with different character. We loved exploring the different beaches and trying out the local sodas on the side of the road and restaurants that we found... More
