I did set my expectations pretty low knowing I wouldn't be spending much time at the hotel That said, I feel it was a great value at only $55 a night. The room was great, kinda tiny, but clean, a/c worked great, never really needed, but never ran out of hot water. Howler monkeys outside gave me my wake up... More

This place is friendly clean and from our room we had a beautiful view of the pacific. Bar restaurant was very nice and the pool relaxing. We surfed all day and came back the the Vista Villa to relax. Great location in Tamarindo in the middle of everything.

We booked here last minute for our last two nights in Costa Rica. We got a great rate on Expedia and the room was a nice big suite with kitchenette, living room, bedroom separated and had AC in the bedroom. The bathroom was decent and we managed to get warm water later in the day. The views were incredible, the... More

The BW Tamarindo is a great location with a lot of potential. We woke up this morning to the Howler monkeys and parrots. Haven't tried the breakfast yet but heading up that way in a minute. The thing I don't understand is why the place is so unkept. Every one is very nice but the place is very run down.... More

The view is great but the hotel needs a little love. Not bad for the price and the location is great. The rooms were okay...no real issues other than a couple of bugs here and there. We went to the pool the first night to find it stagnate with floating garbage in it. We sat on the balcony but never... More

I booked this hotel for our "honeymoon" vacation to Costa Rica to learn to surf. We chose to do a package combination with the hotel and surf lessons. The hotel was a great choice. We had delicious breakfast every morning, great staff members taking care of us, and our room was gorgeous with beautiful views. The pool is very nice... More

Had some of the best waves this March than we have had in our 15 years staying at the Vista Villas! You won't find a better spot to view the surf line up. Jessena kept our casa sparkling clean and the rest of the staff also welcomes us as old friends.

Room was in average shape and condition. Location and overall value was the reason we picked this property. The swimming pool and the view from the swim deck/bar/restaurant was very nice. It was just above the nice surf part of this beach (almost across the street from Witch's Rock). Currently that end of the strip is not as pedestrian friendly... More

My boyfriend and I had never been to Costa Rica before and we chose Tamarindo CR because of the surfing. We chose Best Western because the price was hard to beat and the reviews were pretty great. My review will be the same. We had the BEST time there. During the week it was pretty quiet, the pool was a... More

Our crew stayed there during a surf trip. Excellent location, helpful staff, relaxing atmosphere, great pool bar. Jessina on the staff there took care of us, especially when a couple of our guys were sick. She was excellent. Good value, clean rooms and worked well for a group. It's on the outskirts of town away from all of the riff... More
