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! I would highly suggest you try to stay here if you want an amazing Costa Rica experience. From the bean dip to the massages, everything very... More

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

My husband and I visited Costa Rica for 10 days traveling all over staying in everything from 2 to 5 stars. We just stumbled upon this fun looking hotel and had to check it out. Immediately we fell in love with not only the enchanting hotel but the warmth of the owners Tj and Cyndy! Tj even came fishing with... More

Villa Amarilla is by far the best hotel, bed n breakfast, or vacation spot so far. Cindy and TJ are very welcoming and will make you feel at home. Its right on the beautiful warm Costa Rica beach. It was nice to feel safe leaving all our stuff in the room while we spent the day on the beach. They... More

I went to Costa Rica with a friend for a wedding. We travelled around with a big group and stayed at a lot of resort-type places. The two of us had an extra day in Costa Rica than the rest of our group and we stumbled upon Hotel Villa Amarilla. To our delight, it ended our trip right. It was... More

This was my second time in Costa Rica but my first time staying at the Hotel Villa Amarilla in Tamarindo. I loved the city but the hotel even more. After spending 10 days in paradise I can honestly say I wouldn't go anywhere else! The place has very laid back feel and the owners Tj and Cinde immediately make you... More

This was my first time in Costa Rica, and everything about my vacation was done on a whim. When we got to town we didn't have any hotel accommodations. So it goes without saying that I was extremely grateful to have found this gem. From the moment we rang the bell and were greeted by Cinde I had a sense... More

This is the place for a warm , friendly experience in Tamarindo. The owners go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome and included . Its right on the beach and has a little yard for when the winds are too strong and the sand is blowing on the beach. There is always fresh fruit available to eat.... More
