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

I highly recommend this hotel! It's location is prime, walking distance to the beach! Great service and hospitality! Geisel at the reception was great and very friendly! Our room was nice, very clean and good space! The surroundings were amazing, spectacular views! The pool and bar area are great and it has one of the best views of Tamarindo!

The bw is well situated in tamarindo, staff is welcoming, rooms are clean, and it's a good value. Just get the wifi right man! C'mon. It's really a drag and such an easy fix. Bad wifi is a deal breaker and until this is fixed I would not return.

Hey Bartley, We're sorry that you had some trouble with the WIFI, and we are well aware of some of the connectivity problems that you might have incurred. However, we must remind you that something that appears to be an "easy fix", well, sometimes isn't so easy. You must understand that Costa Rica is not really well known for being... More

Tamirando Vista Villas is a great place to stay while spending time in Costa Rica. The location is central to the town of Tamirando and most importantly, walking distance to an amazing beach. For the price of the room, it is hard to complain. If you plan on staying here, please do not expect the Ritz. I will say the... More

First let me say my awesome experience started even before i arrived. My friend and I were mixing business with pleasure. Of course I was looking for a good deal. What a surprise it was to be offered the all inclusive package. A one bedroom suite that was clean and extremely comfortable with beautiful views of the Pacific and sunsets.... More

I have mixed emotions about this hotel.

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
