Hotel has a very good location, especially with being on the beach. It's also centrally located in town. However, aside from the large breakfast buffet it doesn't offer anything else for free. Most beach resorts you do not expect to pay for boogie boards or if you lose your towel but they will charge you for that. The service here... More

We had a beach wedding at the Dira. It was the perfect location! We stayed almost two weeks and had 20 or so friends and family stay at the Dira also. Everyone loved it. We can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The rooms are nice and cleaned very well. The food... More

On arrival I was very intimidated by the "service" who obviously wanted a tip. How do you tip in Colones? I certainly wasn't going to give them one of my fresh new twenties!! So I needed change. A big issue. It took the staff almost 45 minutes to get us change for a twenty so that I could tip and... More

My husband and I were a bit leary after reading some of the reviews but ended up being pleasantly surprised. I think it really does depend on what room you get. We had an oceanside room on the 2nd floor. I never smelled any sewer smells, our AC worked fine, and our room/bathroom were plenty big enough for the 2... More

I went to Costa Rica with friend and we loved our stay in Tamarindo, a large reason for this was our wonderful hotel. Our room was nice and faced the beach. The beach was gorgeous and we loved the surf. The hotel was right in the middle of town and we could walk anywhere. Overall the staff was great and... More

We arrived there because the taxi from Tamarindo Airport drove us there. From the outside the place looks nice and more expensive than what really is. When we enter the reception is very basic and ugly. The price for a room for 2 was USD 40 with breakfast included. For 2 rooms (1 person per room) we got a price... More

We stayed four nights at the Tamarindo Diria the first week of May. Thanks to all the previous reviews, we knew to check several things as soon as we got to our room. They initially gave us Room #121 - nice view of the beach but small and cramped. They don't leave the air on (not a big surprise) so... More
