Maybe I got a bad room but it was pretty bad. The handle on the shower was falling off, the bed was really hard and lumpy. If the bed was good, add a star. There is a small fridge and the small, old tv worked okay. The ac looked fairly new and worked well. The check in staff were outstanding.... More

We stayed for a week in one of the apartment style rooms with kitchenette. It was very nice and clean, with a/c, ceiling fan and cable tv. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing and the pool is great! We saw a family of monkeys in the tree outside our room and there are some really cool iguanas hanging around. While... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in a double room/private bathroom. The room was brand new, and beautiful (very clean). The pool and lounge area were a great place to relax. The staff was friendly and helpful. Best value for your money inTamarindo. We would very much recommend this hotel for your stay in Tamarindo, the quality can't be beat.

Some of these reviews are mental. Best pillows?? Nonsense. Awful awful pillows. Also, we amassed roughly 30 bed bug bites in 5 nights. Honestly devoured. Add to that there is NO wifi in the bed rooms and even better, no door in the toilet! It's simply around a wall. Lovely romantic honeymoon. I am baffled at anyone who honesty believes... More

In this place you can have a good time, the place is just clean always, and also it is very private, good price for what they offer, from luxury rooms, to simple dormitory with the minimum required features.

Stayed here in November 2013 and we had a great experience. The AC was cold, the rooms were large and the location is great! Off of the main street but only by a block or so which means we were able to walk to everything. There's a great burrito restaurant right near by and the outdoor common area is beautiful.... More

It all seemed good at the beginning, but then the owner freaked out and we had a horrible experience. The worse client service, directly by the crazy owner. Not recomended at all. Would never come back and will make sure to recommend everyone not to come here.

Accepts credit cards--I paid $55 a night for a single. Comfortable rooms with A/C, fridge, hot-water showers. Friendly office staff. Pool. Close to restaurants. No included breakfast. Five minute walk to the beach, which is crowded and full of hawkers--if you want peace and quiet go to Playa Grande. I'm not a big fan of Tamarindo...but if you're here, Hotel... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for the second time. The last time was in 2008 and it was very quiet both at the hotel and in Tamarindo in general. This time around it was much busier in both places. This hotel is indeed one of the hidden gems in Tamirindo and the hostess, Gabriella and her... More

I stayed here for 7 days and I loved it. Good location, great staff, and the place is just gorgeous. i know for a lot of people this might seem trivial, but the shower quality was really good. When you take 2-3 showers a day, you will appreciate a good pressure shower.
