It's a large hotel but very safe - our friends and family could not enter without us vouching for them. I read about noise but this was not a problem on either the side facing the beach or the rooms across the street. Breakfast was ample and good. Staff was attentive and no problems with check in or out. It... More

We stayed at the Diria the week after Christmas over New Years. I will say that the facility was nice and clean, very attractive grounds and loved being so close to the beach. But... the staff was horrible. Never friendly or courteous when you spoke to them. They would sigh and roll their eyes at you if you asked them... More

Dear Noreen M, Thank you for your review on your New Years Eve stay at Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort. While we are delighted to hear that you found our facility nice, clean and with very attractive grounds, it is disconcerting to hear that you found the staff not helpful and unfriendly; this is definitely not the standard we strive for....

We read a number of discouraging reviews of the Diria just before visiting the resort and yet we were ultimately very satisfied with our experience. This is a large and very busy resort - not a boutique type hotel with ebullient customer service practices or pristine accommodations - but I get the sense that's what some reviewers were looking for....

My husband and I, with another couple are currently staying at this resort. I, like many who depend on Trip Advisor for up to date reviews weighed the negative against the positive reviews and did have a little trepidation when I booked this place. We are now here on day 7 and I do not understand any of the negative... More

My wife and I just returned from a honeymoon where we spent five nights here in Tamarindo. The town is nice but is very geared toward foreigners and not especially authentic, if that's what you were looking for. Getting past that, we were very impressed with this hotel. The service was very friendly, access to the beach is excellent, and... More

I would like to follow up with a few concerns that happened while in Tamarindo at the Diria 204 condo that included the Tamarindo Hotel facility, too. First concern was that we were asked to leave the Tamarindo pool because we didn't have the correct color band. No need to explain why given a client staying there was kind enough... More

We chose this hotel because of its location right on the beach and also in the center of town. Location did not disappoint. We stayed in the older building right on the beach. We had a 3rd floor room which had a great view. This building has no elevator, so just keep that in mind if stairs are a problem... More

My husband and I decided to stay here for a week in December (19th- 24th). It's the only big hotel in Tamarindo on the beach. You are close to everything but it's loud. The rooms are small.. nothing special. There are 3 separate hotel areas. We stayed near the adult pool only. It was okay. We went across the street... More

I don't like writing bad reviews as I have never been tested to such a low standard of service as the one at Tamarindo Diria resort. Now the review: this place is far below standards when it comes to service. My wife and I got here around 1:30pm and were made to wait for 2.5hrs before we were given the... More
