I stayed at the Best Western when my mom and brother came to visit me in Costa Rica. The room we were given was very clean and comfortable. I booked through Expedia and got a large room with a kitchen. The cleaning service every day left the room very clean and organized. The hotel receptionists were great at helping us... More

BW has a great view of the beach in Tamarindo. Cost per room was very low (i think like $75/night). The couple we were traveling with got upgraded to a much nicer ocean view room. It was a lot larger and had a nice patio. Us on the other hand had a very small double + twin room. It was... More

We stayed 8 nights here and loved every second of it. Every single member of the staff was friendly and helpful... They truly would go out of their way to accommodate your needs. The rooms were not that of a 5 star hotel (nor do they claim that they are) but they were clean and perfect for what we needed... More

This is the best for your dollar. This location has prime location, great rooms, great service, wonderful people, great ocean views ( must request ocean view room/villa ), and great food. The staff was just like an extended family while there. Expat Manager Trevor is the coolest, and we loved our housekeeper Jesenia who has been there for 15 years... More

Hey Sheryl, You and your mom are awesome people. 'nuff said! Thank you for staying with us, and, believe me, Jessenia, the housekeeper still talks about how wonderful you were. She has already asked me when the two of you will be returning... Now when might that be? Cheers and try to stay warm up there in the BIG CITY! More

Hey Binkie, Thanks for the great opinion. What you say is very true! We have great happy hour specials and offer a great place to watch the sunset. For those who are exchange-rate-ingly challenged, 1,000 colones for a beer or smoothie equates to just under $2 US Dollars, and 900 colones is about $1.75 US Dollars. And, yes, we have... More

Hey Vinotico, Thank you for the positive and very accurate review! We always love to hear from experienced reviewers, because they are generally much more objective than the subjective first time reviewer who is just trying to complain publicly about "the ants in my room!". Our hotel has a great location, an amazing ocean view, good prices, with simple, clean,... More

Howdy Slala, Thank you for taking the time to write your direct, and truthful review. It sounds like you were looking to stay in one of the upper end hotels in town but settled for our little property. Generally we have the pleasure of getting to know all of our customers and we do our best to make their stay... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic time! Just as everyone shared in reviews here, the hotel is very conveniently located to the beach, restaurants and all of Tamarindo (no need for a car - all walking distance) and the hotel staff were incredibly nice and helpful. The room was large, clean and had... More

The staff were very nice, friendly, and very accommodating especially our room maids, Jessenia and Susie. They were very friendly and helpful. They made us feel so welcome and kept our suite very clean during our 2-week stay. Fabrizio, Giesel, Rafael, Adolfo, Evanne, Hazel, Diyanna, and Trevor were so very nice and welcoming.

Hey Daisy, Thank you for the nice review and for mentioning all of the hard work we put into maintaining the property, because it is something that most people don't take into consideration. There is always something that needs to be repaired when a property is so close to the ocean. The stairs, by the way, turned out beautifully and... More

We first visited this hotel for a birthday and only used the pool and bar. It was a great time and we decided to return when some friends wanted to visit Tamarindo. We got a basic room with a queen. It was clean and good for a short stay as the room was small. Our friends upgraded to a larger... More

Hey Buckziz, Thank you for the good review! I think you pretty accurately described our property. It is true that the standard rooms are smaller and don't really have much of a view, but at the same time, they aren't charged as such either. And, yes, we continually upgrade groups of rooms every year in order to keep the property... More
