We had a great stay at the Best Western, the room we chose was very nice and clean, not to mention the great view we had from our porch, with a rocking chair... The service was great and all of the folks that we met that worked at the hotel were very friendly and helpful as well. The ac was... 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. My friend and I really could not beat the price with the size of the room and the views plus we found the staff very friendly and we got free towels to take to the beach every day. However there 2 annoying items that you should be aware of, and if you decide... More

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
