This hotel is super! Nice and quiet, the night watchman is very friendly and kind, as is the cleaning staff and front desk staff. There were ants in our room, but only if you left cookies around or other snacks. I suggest you put your snacks in the fridge provided for use at the back of the hotel by the... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of a tour. Nice pool in the middle of the building. Hotel across from Tamarindo beach, a lovely beach with lots of restaurants and a great atmosphere at sunset with the surfers and the family enjoying the beach. The hotel does not have a restaurant or bar but they have a microwave... More

We arrived in Tamarindo around 10p looking for a place to stay for the night, found Pueblo Dorado, this is a very simple, clean hotel with a nice pool. Breakfast was supposed to be included but were told the next morning that it was not. Nice location.

A friend and I booked a 2 night stay at this hotel last week and since we were already in Tamarindo we actually went to the hotel and made a reservation with their receptionist right there and then. When we showed up the next day to check in, they told us that we don't have a room. We were in... More

We booked a 5 night stay in Pueblo Dorado. The first night we were attacked by fire ants coming from the closet. We moved the bed away from the wall, and made it through the night with only one bite. In the morning, we told the concierge (no one was around during the night) that we wanted a new room,... More

My husband and I spent a week in this hotel and found it to be comfortable, clean and welcoming. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us. The pool is good for cooling off but not for swimming as it is not very deep. Breakfast is a bonus as were the howling monkeys that seranaded us each afternoon... More

The rooms are adequately furnished with maid service daily.The airconditioning is individual to the room, the in room shower is large and tiled. There is a basic fare daily breakfast consisting of fresh fruit, juice, cereal, toast, jam, scrambled eggs and fantastic coffee. The pool is maintained daily and... More

Pros: - Great staff! Welcoming and showed genuine concern - Hot water (weird that it feels like a luxury after coming from Monteverde and Poas) - Very good value for money Cons: - Rickety beds - Ants in the room (the staff changed the room immediately) - Small breakfast. We ended up going to the excellent Parisian bakery opposite the... More

We stayed for four nights of what was to be an eight night stay. First the good - the staff were very nice, it was clean and located out of the busy part of town with a short walk to the beach, and the pool area was nice. Now the bad - the room was very small, the bed was... More

this hotel is totally average -- if you are looking for luxury this is not your place. It is clean enough -- small room with just the basic neccessties. Probably great for backpackers, etc. Short walk to beach, shops. Would stay somewhere nicer next time.
