I would like to thank Jose Soto for taking great care of us while we stayed at your hotel. Any and all accomodations we were looking for, he was able to deliver with a wonderful attitude. He is a great asset to the hotels team. Mr Clifford T. Gannaway

We just got back from a week at the Diria. The resort was very beautiful. It was very clean and grounds very well maintained. The location was ideal, as it was close to everything. The service was good. Front desk workers were not as friendly as the other workers at the resort. Our room was cleaned and towels changed when... More

I have never had worse service at a resort in my life. I have stayed at places in Costa Rica, Jamaica and Mexico before and never had people that cared so little about providing good service. In addition, I had reserved a double room and when I showed up they tried to charge me to upgrade to get a double,... More

This hotel was pretty cute and perfectly well located in Tamarindo beach, walking distance to bars, restaurants, stores and the beach. Service is bad, bartenders and waitress are lazy and not looking to keep the customer happy, I was here with a group of girlfriends and we had a blast but the staff could have make my stay much more...

Beautifull Location right on the beach. You can sit in the Hotel Restaurant and watch the sun god down, or if you prefer, chill out with a drink in the bar and watch the same scenary. The Staff are very friendly and smily. The Rooms have a good size and appears new. Housekeeping is very good and friendly. I would... More

Lovely hotel in a great location. We stayed in one of the poolside rooms across the road and it was very clean and comfortable, with a nice view of the pool and gardens. The breakfast was really nice, lots of fresh fruit, and eggs cooked right in front of you. The staff were polite and helpful, especially the cleaners who... More

I thought I wanted to stay here as the web site looks nice and it is in the center of town right on the beach. However after one night we moved. The staff is rude and arrogant. Our room was stripped down (missing mini fridge), unattractive, and expensive. Could not sleep all night due to noise on the street outside.... More

TavelingMama303, Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. March is a very popular spring break time and considering our location we are a very popular option for every type of 'spring breaker' from preschoolers to college kids... with fun comes noise and thats how it goes. The beach is public and the chairs are not ours nor... More

The room was $200 something a night, they justify by saying free breakfast buffet. It looks fancy but the food was terrible. This hotel is very well landscaped, has a great pool with a bar you can swim up to but other than that there's nothing to say about this hotel. It looks nice but the service is not very... More

missjenn32, We have 3 room options here at the resort. The Ocean Sunset View room being our most expensive option is really a lovely accommodation, I am incredibly surprised that you were displeased. We do not justify our rates becuase of our included breakfast buffet. Our rates are based on the market, our ocean front property, our lush tropical setting,... More

Diria has its good points and its bad, but the good definetly outway the bad! I am going to start... More
