We were just in Tamarindo. Based on some of the negative feedback we switched from this hotel to another one up the beach and we very much regretted it. We drove up to see for ourselves, and it was wonderful, on a beautiful beach, and it most certainly did not smell like sewage. We also ran into some people staying... More

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Costa Rica... The Diria was our first stop on our trip. We stayed with them for 4 nights. The staff here is awesome. They did absolutely everything to make our stay unforgettable. We stayed in a sunset king. The view was great. The room was clean. The bed was kind... More

This place is literally RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!! I checked out all the hotels in Tamarindo before I decided to stay at the Hotel Tamarindo Diria, and there is no doubt that this is the best one. Tamarindo is known as the best town in Costa Rica if you like the beach because it has a 7 mile long white... More

I almost stayed at one of the American chain hotels, but decided to go with a local boutique hotel like this one. I am so glad I did. Not only was the hotel exactly what I think a boutique beach hotel should be (location, service, room quality), but it really gave me the sense that I got to see Costa... More

Our family is just ending a month long trip to Costa Rica and this is by far the best hotel we have stayed at. It is located in town so we were not stuck in the hotel or tied to the very expensive taxis to get around. We could walk to over 20 restaurants and bars, use any one of... More

Read a bunch of TA reviews that raved about the place. The staff were not helpful and several were rude. It was 2 hours to get room after registration in spite of arriving at 4 in the afternoon. Room was dingy and was like a dorm. Disappointing although it is a cool town and fun spot.

Dear Burlington Vermont Traveler, Thank you for your input. It always makes us sad to hear that a customer had a bad experience with our staff. We are proud to have some of the best employees in Costa Rica and many of them have worked at the hotel for over 10 years. Manuel in the restaurant has even been here... More

They claim this is the nicest hotel in Tamarido...I disagree! First I'll start wiht the rooms...we paid for the most expensive room and got something I would think is the cheapest. The room consited of a bed, and old TV, and a dresser. No where to sit or walk. The bed was so hard it felt like a thin yoga... More

We stayed here on our vacation to relax and kick back. Unfortunately, the hotel was not what we expected. It was noisy, the food was terrible and service the worse we've ever encountered. We found the beach dirty and had to go elsewhere to find a clean, sandy beach. Our room was sparse and maidservice left a lot to be... More

We are sorry you had a bad experience at the Tamarindo Diria. Fortunately, that is not the norm for our guests. With a 40% return rate, our guests seem to enjoy our facilities, service and our pristine beach. Indeed, the hotel is on the busy street, which is why entering is a safe haven away from the hustle and bustle... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Diria for two nights while we traveled around the area looking for a potential spot to host our wedding next year.

Buyer beware. This is not a golf resort like the name says, there is no golf course, just a putting green. Also, the hotel smelled like raw sewage.
