My family (wife, myself and 2 teenage boys and one teenage friend of theirs) stayed from 12/21-30/2007 in 2 rooms. The rooms awre amply sized and clean although a bit musty. There were occasional insects/crabs in the rooms. My wife and I stayed on the ground floor with an ocean view which was very nice. Our kids loved the surfing,... More

We expected to be picked up at the airport, which is one hour away. I confirmed the arrangements twice, but nobody showed up. Having had that experience before, we were not surprised; not even angry. Fortunately there were plenty of taxis and they are regulated, so it was safe and fast and cheaper anyway. We had a great room, on... More

This place was a gem in the middle of a beach town. Our room wasn't bad, again not a five star resort, but it was a nice place. Definitly not a caribean beach, brown water, brown sand. But I took surfing lessons for $25 with a free tee shirt and had a great time. The hotels food was OK, expensive... More

I stayed at the Diria on a recommendation and was sourly disappointed. If the stay had gone as planned then it would have been only a mediocre stay. The room was modest with firm bedding and uncontrollable temperature. The freezing shower matched the freezing pool. The pool was overlooked by a construction site and the “cat calls” that come with... More

This was an awesome stay. This hotel was exactly the place I was looking for in early December - a hotel on the beach with nice rooms, good location, and great food. The hotel is located in the middle of Tamarindo, but the back overlooks the ocean. The grounds are very well maintained, including the swimming pools. There were many... More

Despite mixed reviews on this website my friend and I booked this hotel on the recommendation of a colleague. The hotel itself is located right in the middle of Tamarindo beach, in probably the best location possible. The whole area is easily within walking distance, and the room we stayed in was gorgeous and had an ocean view over the... More

After doing a week of adventure travel around Costa Rica we ended our vacation with 6 nights at the Tamarindo Diria for some relaxation and playing in the sand and surf. We found the staff to be friendly and efficient and the location of the resort was in the heart of Tamarindo and close walking distance to all the local... More

Several friends and I stayed at the Diria in late August and had a great time. We stayed in a room across the small street and had no problem. The walk is only about 2 minutes from our room to the sand. We enjoyed the pool across the street as well. It was mostly empty throughout our whole stay. The... More

The Diria is a nice place to stay. The groups and pool areas are nicer than most in Tamarindo. The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of town. We walked the whole thing with no problem. The staff isn't as helpful as some smaller family owned places but we didn't have much problem. The breakfast is fantastic and our... More
