With its location at the beach, this is a place to consider in Tamarindo. Many of the rooms (including ours) are across the street by the huge pool,which was nice except for a lack of seating and kind of obnoxious loud ongoing techno music. Near the beach, if you stake out your chairs early, it was quite pleasant. The rooms... More

We have always done four and five star all-inclusive resorts but with four girls ages 18-23 we thought we would try the Diria, right in the center of Tamarindo. Great vacation overall, but the hotel was just 'ok'. Once we stopped comparing it to a five star, it became more palatable and we did enjoy ourselves. Positive - We did... More

We had booked to stay at this hotel from Dec. 30th to Jan. 2nd on the hotel website. They have a 4 day minimum over the holidays. It was much more expensive (325/night) than some of the other nearby hotels but most were booked by early Nov. when I was booking. Two weeks after booking I got an e-mail saying... More

Beautiful location right on the beach. Recommend the ocean fronted rooms. Beware the ones on the other side of the street which are a good walk away and backed onto a dusty carpark. But my 5 night stay was tainted by rude and unresponsive staff. From the moment I checked in the staff were surly and unhelpful. The guys behind... More

The place looks gorgeous. The staff is mentally asleep. The service is non existence. The quality of food is mediocre. The place is overrated and too expensive for what they offer. I would never recommend this place to a friend or foe. Taramindo beaches are beautiful. But Thias about it.

The hotel is located right over the amazing beach. We got there after 3 PM, and were made to wait for over an hour for the room to get ready. The front staff seemed condescending. I agree with the reviewer who spoke about 2 towels for 4 people- we had the same experience! But they did send two more later!... More

This is by far the best full service resort in the Tamarindo area. Amazing pools, great restaurants, wonderful staff and right on the beach. Everything was perfect. Tamarindo is the best place to learn to surf in all of Costa Rica and there are a ton of surf shops in the area where you can sign up for lessons.

My wife and I stayed here last year, Feb 2014. We booked through a Costa Rican travel agent and thought we were getting a beachfront room, but ended up with a room across the street. At first we were disappointed, but it turned out to be quite nice. We were away from the traffic, the restaurants, and the majority of... More

We stayed here one night in december. It's a huge hotel, right at the beach but we didn't like it, feels very "american". The room was clean, but the interior is very old and wasn't "fresh". The food was average (breakfast and lunch), at the evening there was a party and we could not sleep cause of the music. The... More
