I stayed 3 nights at a standard room, checking-in friday night, checking-out monday noon. The view from the pool is beautiful. The room is a tiny room, there is no space for wet clothing...I mean you are at the beach, right. On Friday night a pretty famous party takes place at the Crazy Monkey Bar, which is the hotel pool...

The hotel is located about two hundred yards from the town. The short walk can be a little precarious due to intermittent walkways. There is a security booth that doubles as a lobby as you enter the driveway on the left. We had a top floor suite which was well appointed, clean and had a large balcony with a great... More

We were pleased with our room and view. The air conditioning worked well! Nice little patio area. Great value. Employees were very friendly and helpful. It was very clean. The pool/lounge/bar area was gorgeous as well as was the view from there. Lots to do for families. Highly recommend. Plus we could hear the Howler Monkeys one evening after a... More

This was our 5th stay in the last 6 years. You can always count on great service. The hotel is on the edge of town but right across the street from surf board rentals, pharmacy, restaurants and steps to THE BEACH. We stay here because the vista rooms are nice. They have great views of Tamarindo and Playa Grande. The... More

For being a Best Western, this place is nice. It has an awesome roof top pool, and bar/ restaurant area. The view of the beach is amazing! We got a suite, and it was nice. Everything was clean. And the staff was friendly.

Hey laurenbeachbum, Thank you for the nice words... While we agree that not all BEST WESTERN hotels are created equally, we would like to remind you that each hotel is individually owned and operated, so each hotel has a different charm and different characteristics. That is why every hotel looks distinct, feels distinct, and charges distinct from every other hotel.... More

We booked a room for 4 nights for 3 people and our first room was nice but didn't have a bigger view of the ocean. They were running a special and we asked for an upgrade to an upper floor with a better view. They were happy to give us a wonderful place with a full kitchen and separate bedroom... More

I would like to congratulate Maricruz for such warming welcoming and attentive service, it made of our weekend a great experience. I loved the hotel and the nice view of the beach. Sunsets are just amazing. This place offers a great service for a very reasonable yet affordable rate. Well recommended
