Stayed only one night but wish it could have been more and in a different room. We did have an Ocean view room for a good off-season rate. We loved the room that we saw, but the room we got had an odor to it when you first entered every time. We did not ask to change rooms as we... More

After spending a few days at Arenal for the first leg of our Honeymoon, my wife and I were looking for some relaxation and pampering in Tamarindo -- and the Diria provided it in spades. I'd e-mailed ahead to notify them we would be spending our Honeymoon there, and the staff made sure we had an extra-special stay. While we... More

This hotel is right on the beach. We got an ocean view room, which was absolutely worth it (the "honeymoon" suite, on the other hand - which they offered to upgrade us for an additional fee - probably is not worth that additional fee). The breakfast is hearty, although we were surprised when we checked out that we were paying... More

We booked this hotel online. It's the largest resort in town and occupies a great spot, centre of the beach. The company owns the airport, shops on both sides of the street, and lots of vacant land. The place is well run. Like a lot of big (but not international) hotels in Costa Rica, you have to wear a plastic... More

Tamarindo was our last stop of a 10 day trip in CR. We had a rental 4WD vehicle with GPS (A MUST if you choose to drive in CR). We started our trip in San Jose-Arenal-Monteverde-Tamarindo and flew out of Liberia. We traveled with 2 kids, girl 11, boy 8 and fell in love with Costa Rica! Our stay at... More

The hotel and the staff were very friendly. The grounds crew were constantly cleaning the grounds. The Costa Rican people were exceptional. They appeared to enjoy their work and were uniformly proud of their Country. We noticed that tourists which were appreciative of the service were treated royally. Tourists that acted like service was owed to them were served but... More

The hotel was nice-the pool, bar, restaurant, and beach. The rooms were just okay-nothing too special. I would stay there again.

We stayed at the Diria for a week at the end of June. We had read many reviews, both good and bad. Many wrote of bad smells, horrible service, rude staff, etc. We were a little concerned, but this has happened to us many times - where we read bad reviews but end up loving the place, so we went...

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days for our honeymoon in room 216, which is ocean view. The room was large and very comfortable, and the complementary breakfast in the morning was excellent. The caveats are the following: 1. The phone didn't work in the room. We asked numerous times for it to be fixed, which never happened.... More

I've stayed here before and will continue to come back. Expensive, but worth the price. Great location, right on the beach.
