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

We spent two days/nights here and could easily have stayed longer. Cinde and TJ work extremely hard to make it incredibly easy to relax and have a good time, If you are looking for an upscale, fancier type of hotel with all of the amenities, Hotel Villa Amarilla is not for you. If you're looking for a clean hotel with... More

Fabulous place, right on the beach. Gorgeous rooms, breakfast until midday! Cindy, the owner, will take care of everything you'll need, always with a big smile. All you have to do is enjoy the beautiful place!

After trying several massage places in Tamarindo, I'm speechless on how great a massage Mari and Segrario provide. After an exhausting morning of surfing, they provide the perfect balance between, relaxation, deep tissue, and sport massage. They know how to get the kinks out of my shoulders from all that paddling (in the water). They also have a covered cabana... More

The staff here were super welcoming and even gave us a shot of tequila on arrival. The rooms and common area were clean and recently updated. The rooms were comfy with modern updates, especially the bathrooms. Nice oceanfront hotel, you're literally steps away from the sandy beach. Great price for what you get! Chill vibes all around. Nice hammocks to... More

I travel to Tamarindo once a year. This was my first time staying at Villa Amarilla and it will be where I stay from now on. I can't say enough about how kind and accommodating TJ, Cinde and the entire staff at Villa Amarilla were. TJ and Cinde make you feel more like family, than hotel guests. The hotel is... More

I really can't say enough about this place. My husband and I came for two nights, and ended up staying two weeks. And would still be there now, if we didn't have to work! This hotel is a paradise. It's not a large chain hotel, so you really get to meet the travelers that are staying there, and the owners,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Villa Amarilla (yellow village)is a funky, fun, feel at home hotel. You check-in as a guest but check-out as a friend. For the past year we have been renovating everything. Everything is brand new. Lush tropical gardens facing the beach, to new beds and the softess sheets and comfy pillows. In the morning get to know our other friends (guests) by sharing coffee, muffins and fruit for breakfast in the Rancho. A/C, cable t.v. hot water and Wifi are also included in the rooms. We our right on the beach with the most beautiful sunsets. Here in Tamarindo, people stop what they are doing just to watch the sunsets. We are in the center of town (right next to the Diria), big yellow hotel with a surfer on the front of the building along with a parrot, a monkey, iguana, a couple of fish and a frog. You can't miss us, don't miss the experience of the Hotel Villa Amarilla. ... more   less
