We came to Tamarindo late in the evening without any room reservation and walked to Hotel Villa Amarilla where we felt very welcome and they found us a room to stay. Althought the room was a little oversized for our needs, we found it cosy and loved it. The hotel has beautiful garden by the sea where you can hang... More

The property is located directly on the beach in the middle of town beside the Diria. The location of this hotel is easily the best out of any hotel or accommodations in Tamarindo. You can walk from your room directly in to the ocean to swim and then back up on to the property without breaking a sweat. The atmosphere... More

My husband and I stayed here with our two year old daughter and immediately felt at home. There are a dozen of great things to say about this place but to keep it short, we love the location, the owners and the rooms. The owners are SO incredibly friendly & accommodating. The rooms are spacious, very clean and have a/c.... More

My friend Jen met TJ on a flight from LAX and we had to come check out Villa Amarilla. Cindy and TJ take care of anything you might need and are so very amazing!

Me and my friends stayed at Villa Amarilla in August for 2 nights. We just loved the atmosphere around the house. Rooms are perfectly clean and nice, but we did not spend any time except sleeping there. The owner Cindy and TJ made all the guest come together in the beautiful garden with direct sea access. We enjoyed playing games,... More

I went to Tamarindo with Mildred my girlfriend and stayed in Villa Amarilla, thanks God! Cinde was the most "Pura Vida" of them all. The place is the best in the area, right on the beach. Pretty cozy, clean and with everything you need and I mean everything!!! There's safety guards (even when you don't need them) 24/7, Free wholesome... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled this hotel while walking down the main strip of Tamarindo and we are so happy that we stopped in! It's cute and quaint and a great location! Did I mention that have to take a shot of tequila when you check in and there's all you can eat fruit...Beautiful views and wonderful customer service! ‪... More
