After exploring other areas of Costa Rica for the first part of our trip, my fiancé and I spent the weekend at Vista Villas. What a mistake...that we didn't spend more time here! The rooms are very comfortable and roomy, and we loved our patio area. Location could not be better, as we were a very short walk from the... More

Checked this place out twice as we come to Costa Rica at least twice a year. Considering this is still the rainy season their prices were rediculous. We were quoted $180 a night for a single and $436. For two bedroom. It is an older hotel with lots of construction going on. Really sadened us to see three caged Scarlett... More

Hello Jacquelinne, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. However, we are slightly concerned as to your claims about the property. As you can plainly see on any of our web-portals, our prices do not come close to the range at which you were quoted. We have standardized pricing and generally offer great prices for the lower...

Let me start by saying this property is going through a refurb, and well the contractors they use will not be confused with those who built the Sistene Chapel. Fittings aren't great, sinks are way to high, quirky little electrical things (like if you turn off the lights the overhead fans went off as well -great for sleeping). All these... More

Hey Margesmister, Thanks for the good review! And we are sorry we were still working out a few small construction issues while you were here. You'd be surprised at how different construction technology is here at the end of the road as compared to somewhere like Toronto, where you'll find a Home Depot like store on every corner. If you...

Awesome location, right across the street from the beach and you can even see the ocean from the hotel rooms. Service is really great, celebrated friend's birthday and dinner was on the house. Clean facilities, large suites with a kitchen and patio area. Definitely recommend staying here while you're in Tamarindo.

Across the street from the beach, close to town but far enough to avoid most of the mayhem, the pool is big and has a great view and it's an all around good experience - especially considering it costs less than much of the competition, from what I could see. Other pluses: a fine breakfast, friendly, helpful staff, comfortable, adequate... More

Hey PatfromNJ, Thank you for the review. I think you have made a good point in letting people know about our live music on Friday Nights. However, please be advised that the band plays on Friday nights, not Monday nights. We do agree that we are probably one of the most competitively priced options here and you will be hard-pressed...

I stayed here for a night while on my way to San Jose to visit my daughter. It is located right across from the beach, right on the Tamarindo strip of so many nice bars, clubs, restaurants. The staff is great and the price is right!

Hello 276grettelp, Thank you for taking the time to write the review.

My friend and I had a groupon deal with this hotel, they even helped us getting a bigger discount by letting us know to like them on Facebook and they gave us another percentage off.
