This was a great hotel that had the simple things you would need. The bed could be a bit more comfortable and breakfast be a little better but I'm sure best western has standard things also. The staff was so friendly and were willing to talk to you and help you with anything you needed. Be prepared if you stay... More

Hey JRoseteUSA, What a nice review! We most certainly remember you guys... You crazy coco-guaro drinkers... The pizza you recommend is called "El Jefe" and is comprised of scrumptious white sauce, roasted chicken, olives, and tomatos (its also my favorite pizza). We really appreciate the time you spent here and we hope to see you again sometime in the future... More

First off I'm 23 & my boyfriend is 28. We came to Tamarindo looking for relaxation and a place to kick back and also zip line. We stayed in an ocean view room which actually overlooks the ocean that's across the street. It seemed to be a median price for a hotel. There are many hostels here. We have a... More

This is the first hotel as you enter town on the left, so it is away from the hustle and bustle. This is right across the street from the Robert August Witches Rock surf camp and right across the street from the surf break near the river. Kelly's surfboard rental is also close by. Our room was nice and clean... More

After exploring other areas of Costa Rica for the first part of our trip, my fiancé and I spent the weekend at Vista Villas. What a mistake...that we didn't spend more time here!

Checked this place out twice as we come to Costa Rica at least twice a year. Considering this is still the rainy season their prices were rediculous. We were quoted $180 a night for a single and $436. For two bedroom. It is an older hotel with lots of construction going on. Really sadened us to see three caged Scarlett... More

Hello Jacquelinne, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. However, we are slightly concerned as to your claims about the property.

Let me start by saying this property is going through a refurb, and well the contractors they use will not be confused with those who built the Sistene Chapel. Fittings aren't great, sinks are way to high, quirky little electrical things (like if you turn off the lights the overhead fans went off as well -great for sleeping). All these... More

Hey Margesmister, Thanks for the good review! And we are sorry we were still working out a few small construction issues while you were here. You'd be surprised at how different construction technology is here at the end of the road as compared to somewhere like Toronto, where you'll find a Home Depot like store on every corner. If you...

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.

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.
