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. Unfortunately it appears that you are one of those few people who do not take the time to properly research a hotel before reserving it. In fact, I bet that if you would have taken the same amount of time researching the hotel as you did writing this... More

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.

Hey Bella P, Thanks for the great review. You are right, our hotel and Tamarindo in general is a great young, fun, and adventurous place to visit. We have great activities right out front of the hotel, like surfing and kayaking, and we also have fantastic restaurants and nightlife nearby. It appears that you are already following us on facebook,... More

The BW Tamarindo Vista Villas is an older hotel, but well kept. We were there in low season (almost off season) - so remodeling and construction is ongoing - probably in preparation for the high season towards the end of the year. For the size of the room, the price was very reasonable. We stayed in one of the rooms... More

Hey MaGuNi, Thank you for your honest review of the hotel. I would most certainly agree with your assessment of property and I do want to apologize for the inconvenience of remodeling. Unfortunately, you did travel during our lower season and hence, as you mentioned, we do have to remodel rooms during this time of year. With that being said,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our visit to Tamarindo. The location in not bad. You can walk to anywhere on the main road. The beach is just across the street. Less than a 5 minute walk. It is an older place, it does show its age. We had room 109 I believe. They said it had an ocean... More

Vista Villas has pretty much all you could ask for in Tamarindo - amazing ocean views from the pool and patio, tasty food, clean and comfortable rooms, and a friendly, helpful staff.
