If you are looking for a fun time while in Tamarindo, this is the place to stay. The rooms a... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and with me was my wife and two teenaged sons. We had heard about Hotel Villa Amarilla primarily from this website. What a great choice we made. First, Cinde and TJ really make you feel at home. I mean really at home. The hotel is safe, intimate, and really comfortable. Plus, anything... More

Cinde makes you feel right at home! Fantastic location, comfortable rooms, and the service couldn't be better. Whether you're in Tam for a night or an extended stay, Cinde will make your experience unforgettable. Couldn't recommend staying here more!

Stayed here with my family recently. Incredibly welcoming hosts (and guests for that matter). A perfect location on the beach. Rooms nicely kept and comfortable. Tasty breakfast. Very nice grounds with hammocks, chairs, a massage area and views which leads right onto the beach. Not fancy, but if that's what your looking for its a great alternative to bigger and/or... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night here and had a lovely time. It's not like any regular hotel you've been to, you are greeted with a shot of tequila, which is definitely a nice touch! Our room was bright, clean, and had a view of the ocean, what more can you ask for! (Also equipped with a mini fridge)... More

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

I super recommend this hotel, the room is very comfortable super clean. Great location close to all the bars, restaurants and night clubs. I was very well attended, the owners are super attentive. Great cost benefit.
