The position was excellent, just across the road from the beach and within easy walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. It's also placed away from the busy street so its very quiet. The hotel has beautiful gardens and an amazing and clean pool. Linen, sheets and towels in bad need of replacing. The guy behind the reception desk... More

We stayed for 5 nights at this hotel in February 2012 and had a lovely time. We had a room across the road overlooking the beautiful pool and it was very good. Only slight problem was getting a hairdryer - it took three attempts before housekeeping finally brought one to the room. Can't understand why a hotel of this calibre... More

My wife and I stayed the Diria from Feb 13 - Feb 17 in an ocean front room (307). We were originally only supposed to stay through the 16th but extended our stay for an additional day. The hotel and grounds are well kept. Our room had a mostly unobstructed view of the ocean from our balcony, although we noticed... More

We booked the hotel through a Living Social deal and I was not expecting much so I was very pleasantly surprised when we drove up and found a beautiful open air lobby with view of the (smaller) pool, a picturesque walkway to the beach, and the bonus of arriving right before sunset so we got to watch the sun set...

Perfect location, no need to ever leave hotel except to go ziplining LOL. Recommend paying extra for ocean view, as your patio porch is the hotel's lushious gardens and just steps to the beach. I was in poolside room for 1 night, but was moved because of noise repairmen were making. The hotel immediately acommodated me by moving me to... More

Good location just across the road from the beach. Our 1st mistake was paying for our room before we looked at it. The 1st room the bed was full of hair. The 2nd room we tried the sheets were wore right thru....mostly held together by threads and garbage on the floor.tried to get our money back and had a tough... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from a 5 night stay at Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort. Although we had an unforgettable time in Costa Rica, there were a few glitches that made our stay unpleasant. Upon on our arrival, we were not greeted by a friendly staff. We had an ocean view room which was standard size. The bathroom was... More

We booked a stay with this hotel for 4 nights (through a Groupon) recently, and were highly disappointed with the hotel, staff and services and WILL NOT be back. To start, the Groupon was not made clear to us at check-in. It was assumed all food and drink was inclusive during our stay. After being charged on several instances, we... More

We spent 4 days in Tamarindo Diria. What a dissapointment. We selected their best room that faced the ocean. The bathroom and shower were very tiny that only one person could stand in the room. Towels were threadbare. There was no drain stopper in the sink, God forbid you drop something, its gone. When requesting additional hand towels and washclothes,... More

We had reservations to stay here on our honeymoon for 6 nights back in November. We left after the first night. Reasons: 1.) The room smelled like mold. They originally told us to stay on the first floor...we walked in the room for two minutes and requested to be moved to the third floor. That room was better but very... More
