We visited during the spring break and its the perfect location. I would recommend people to stay at the Ocean front rooms. We were on the third floor and the view was spectacular. All our friends who has seen our Costa rica pics agree that Costa rica is beautiful and the hotel Tamarindo Diria is great. The beach is one... More

We stayed at Hotel Tamarindo Diria in April with our two middle school boys for Spring Break. This hotel is quintessentially situated just within the legal limits of beach access at one of the most beautiful beaches in Tamarindo. The hotel has units that look out at the beach and sunset next to a tree filled lawn, and units across... More

The only thing this hotel has going for them is the view and that it is a beach front hotel. Other than that everything is average. They do offer free breakfast but it is not good. I love food and I can eat anything but everything was dreadfully awful. The only thing I could scarf down was the cereal and... More

My husband and I (both 20-somethings) stayed at the Diria on our recent trip to Tamarindo. It was our first time in Costa Rica and we found the hotel staff exceptionally helpful. The tour desk operators are GREAT and go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your trip. They even made restaurant reservations for us, since we don't... More

My husband and I stayed there for 6 nights in February. The good points were: it was clean, the rooms were large and bed was comfortable and the food was decent. The low points were: the check in staff were unorganized and the restaurant service truly horrible. It didn't help that during our stay a film crew were there disrupting... More

We are terribly sorry that you felt that your experience at the Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort was not the best it could be. That is not the norm with our guests, who for the most part are able to enjoy themselves, and often return. As a matter of fact, we have a return rate of 40% per year.... More

I stayed here for a month and Tamarindo Diria hs its high points and low points. Highs are, Great location, great service IF you treat the staff properly. If you scream at them because they dont speak English, just remember you're in THEIR country, so dont be another Arrogant American Jerk! They do work at their own pace (Tiki Time),... More

During our stay in Costa Rica, this hotel is the one thing we bring back as a negative experience. Staff were not helpful at all, we tried to get our money back and they took so long to resolve the issue that by then it was almost time to leave. When we first approached them about it, a second management... More

We are sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay at the Tamarindo Beach & Golf Resort. It sounds like from the start you did not personally like the hotel, which is your prerogative, and because of that, you were disgruntled with the service and things like the minibar, which as you know is typically more expensive in hotels. If you were... More

We stayed at the Tamarindo Diria for one week recently. The resort is nice. Good location & nice beach area. The customer service there is lacking. Most acted like you were putting them out to do their job. We did run across a couple of bartenders & one waitress that were actually friendly & seemed to enjoy their jobs. Most... More

This is definitely not the 4 star resort it presents itself as. Totally a motel. My room had no clock and the shower could barely fit shampoo after a person was in there. The hotel was pretty disappointing, but so was Tamarindo. The tour person at the hotel was dishonest and I would be extremely careful before booking tours through... More
