This is probably the best place to stay "in town." I almost wish our travel agent would have put us in a different part of the country, but regardless... it was fun. Tamarindo is basically a commercial surf town. Tons of surfers come here. The best shopping is in the hotel area. Wifi was good outside and close to the... More

Traveling through Costa Rica, we originally had planned to stay two nights in Tamarindo at the Hotel Diria. Immediately upon arrival, our group of three knew we would do better to spend only one night and find somewhere else to go. Everyone we encountered seemed too busy to help. The beach was crawling with vendors selling adventures or cheap souvenirs.... More

Good central location, direct beach access. Beach side restaurant is great for breakfast and even better for sunsets. Breakfast buffet contains hearty fair as well as a fruit table, a bread table, omelet grill and a waffle grill - plenty to eat. During our stay, the water was a crystal clear green/blue, small wave break. Lots of surf lessons and... More

My 11 year old daughter and I just returned. As you can see from so many positive reviews, the Diria is hard to fault. From the moment we arrived the staff took such good care of us. The front desk was friendly and check in was a breeze. Randall showed us to our room and continued to be our best... More

I visited Hotel Tamarindo as a group on a business trip. I was pleasantly surprised of the view and open layout of the hotel upon check in. Our room was on the ground floor at the front overlooking the beach (couldn't have asked for a better view!). When unpacking my bags I noticed mosquitos and small bugs flying around -... More

The Diria is overpriced for the area and the tour desk scams you out of money. My boyfriend became very ill and could not attend a tour and they would not refund us. For the price that we paid to stay in this hotel I would expect some accommodation for emergency situations. He got food poisoning from the hotel's food.... More

I am a picky traveler and was very pleased with our stay here. Our room attendant Auriela did a fantastic job at keeping our room clean. Whole hotel is very clean. Morning breakfast buffet is good with large selection. Pools are great. Amazing beachfront location. Close to absolutely everything. No need for rental car, walk anywhere in town in just... More

I just returned from a 5 day stay at the Diria and I'd say overall the experience was eh. PROs: 1) It is central to town. If that's where you want to be. See my notes on the town below. Walkable to all of the restaurants/bars/grocery stores/etc. A lot of the hotels we looked at were a 20-30 min cab... More

HOtel was perfect for family. My kids are 18 and 14, very safe. Guards are always aware and a wristband identifies you from other non guests. Family pool and swim up bar is awesome. Beach area is very nice and locals can not come onto property to sell only on beach. I had the best massage in front of the... More
