We stayed at The Oaks for the month of February and enjoyed our stay immensely! The buildings, pools and grounds are kept pristine. We found the location to be ideal. Close enough to everything but away from the hustle and bustle at the same time. There were many great beaches that you can go to within a 30 minute drive.... More

First let me share the setup of my trip. Had to find a last minute condo (2 days prior to trip) at a reasonable price that could accommodate a kid, dog and a disable senior citizen so needed a first floor apt. I think it was impossible but Robert at The Oaks came through!!! His customer service and friendliness is... More

The Oaks was my home for a year while I was teaching English in Costa Rica. I was quite happy with all the amenities that were available to me at the property. I think they may have the nicest pools that I saw anywhere in Costa Rica. The Oaks was the nicest place I saw at a reasonable price (I... More

I lived at the Oaks for a year and it was a wonderful place to call home. The condos are first class design and construction with amazing features. My visitors from the U.S. were always happily impressed. The pools are great and was just a few steps away from my condo. Always felt safe for myself and possessions with 24... More

We spend three weeks at the Oaks and really enjoyed our time. The unit was very comfortable, modern and clean. Great pools, one really big one, one for laps and one for little kids. Really great location but you will need a car for getting to Tamarindo. Not a safe or short walk for kids. We were really happy we... More

Our 2 bedroom 2 bath condo was clean and beautifully furnished , plasma TV's , Jacuzzi  tub, washer & dryer, high speed internet.... More

I do not recommend the Oaks. They make you believe the place is safe and we got burglarized in the middle of the night and got out electronics stolen and money while we were sleeping! When we realized we contacted the administration and they were not helpful at all!!! Greatly dissappointed!!!!!

CostaRicaRobert, General Manager at The Oaks Tamarindo, responded to this review

We regret this guest's experience. The Oaks has a long standing reputation for safety, and we took and continue to take safety and prevention of theft quite seriously. The Oaks security is based on 24/7 security, with a front gate guard and roving guards through the property, controlled access by vehicles and a location a few kilometers away from local... More

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
