If they offer you room 103, don't even leave the reception desk. It's described as "Sunset King". Both statements are technically true; it faces west and has a king-sized bed. The appeal ends there. The room is about 3 ft larger than the bed in three dimensions, it is the closest room to the bar and two restaurants, might as... More

My wife and I completed our four day stay on Feb. 12, 2012. The grounds and views are beautiful. The service is ugly! First of all we did not receive the room catagory which was confirmed to us. It took 5 phone calls over two days, to get them to remove the contents of the mini fridge in our room.... More

We stayed three nights at the Diria in an Oceanfront room. View was great. Across the main street in town is the other part of the hotel which has a large resort type pool with swim up palapa bar. Breakfast was included as well. The bathrooms were quite small (shower 3' x 2.5') and they could have used some feather... More

The hotel was very accommodating and was in a perfect spot. The hotel had a very nce beach front location with high class beach setting on the property grounds. We stayed at the hotel section on the beach side at a third floor room for 5..2 adults and kids 14,12,and 9. The hotel bar had a nice dinner for us... More

Overall this is a very good resort. The beach is very wide and easy to walk on. And, this is the only major hotel right on the beach. We had an upper floor, ocean view room, which we would highly recommend. A part of the hotel is across the street and it seemed like it would be a little remote.... More

The Tamarindo Diria Hotel met our basic expectations. The rooms were airy, clean and well maintained. The grounds lovely although the place often felt crowded. The beach itself is gorgeous.Breakfast was very good, but the lunch and dinner menus were disappointing. A lovely place for families with children.

We spent 2 nights last week and were very surprised at how nice this place is. The grounds were pretty and the rooms large and clean and fresh. We stayed at the cheapest room they had and it was very nice. It was large, clean, and very comfortable. I'd definitely go back and stay there again.

Lovely experience. Excellent hotel, comfortable room, good service, great beach. The only disappointing experience was at the hotel restaurant. We asked for a glass of water and the manager of the restaurant did not allow the waiter to bring it to the table unless we paid for it. When we complained he was very disrespectful telling the waiter that he... More

I love this hotel. If you love surfing, sun, and beach- stay here. I had such a great time staying here especially after back packing thru the jungle parts of Costa Rica. This is a great way to end my trip- COMPLETE RELAXATION!
