This hotel is very central to the downtown area. Staff were friendly and very efficient. Took time to chat and give info when asked. Hotel is a little dated but clean and comfortable. Pool area has great view. Sunsets were good from there.

On a Friday night, book room 301! It's an upstairs corner room with one queen bed, and a kitchenette. 4 can sleep comfortably in this room. 2 balconies! One oversees the ocean bay and the other one oversees the pool & bar. perfect! Bring your A-game :)

I got the living social deal and stayed for 5 nights. We even upgraded to Corona Suite. Let me just warned you...Do NOT STAY AT ROOM 202. Don't get me wrong, the people that work there were great. We didn't have any complains about them at all but we hardly sleep there. BED BUGS!!! We even slept using bug repellent.... More

The hotel rooms could definitely use some improvement. Very dated and a little dingy. The food and drinks are amazingly good. We had breakfast there every morning, drinks mid-day and ate dinner there the last two nights of our stay. Afterward we wished we had eaten there every night! The staff were friendly and gracious. The pool was clean and... More

Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay at Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas. We used the Groupon for a week both last year and this year. We hope that the Groupon is offered again so that we can return for another visit. We have visited a total of three times and found the Best Western was the most welcoming... More

My boyfriend and I spent one week at the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas. I can honestly say this is my absolute favorite vacation we've been on so far. The town is a small little surf town and full of little restaurants and shops and the people are amazing! There is also a ton of wildlife, lizards, monkeys and birds... More

My husband & I purchased this hotel on Groupon to travel for a long weekend getaway the second weekend in June (my hubby tries to go to Tamarindo Beach every year to surf, I haven't been back since 2006). Driving up to the hotel from Liberia airport, I didn't think much of it from the outside, but from the moment... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica... We purchased a Groupon, and to be perfectly honest I was very skeptical. The price was very affordable (almost unbelievably), so I decided there was not a lot to loose.... Upon arrival there was a shuttle awaiting us at the airport in Liberia just as promised. We actually upgraded to the larger... More

My wife and I checked into the BW Vista Villa in Tamarindo when our condo arrangements fell through. We ended up staying four nights. It was a miserable experience. Pros: Overall great staff, pet friendly, and nice pool area. Cons: Teeny tiny uncomfortable rooms, and noisy. Size -- I've never seen a standard hotel room this small. You literally had... More

Hey James, We are really sorry to hear about your “miserable experience” during your stay with us, but we feel like your review might not be completely objective and that a few of your descriptions might be slightly exaggerated. For instance, insinuating that our bar and restaurant staff are dishonest because you entered in an above average tip is a... More
