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.

We were looking for a quality place to stay at an affordable price in Tamarindo, Costa Rica that was also close to the beach. This is what we have been searching for. Whether you go to Tamarindo to enjoy the beautiful beach, the great surf, ecotours, nightlife and other activities or just to relax after a long day of traveling,... More

I stayed here for a few days in August 2013 and it was a perfect escape from reality. My room was quiet and clean, the hotel has a beautiful private pool, and the location was great - steps away from restaurants and only a short walk to the beach. There is also an ATM and supermarket nearby. My room had... More

I stayed and Nahua for 10 days and it was a delight ! The owner was great, friendly, and eager to help. The property is quaint and close to the beach and has a lovely pool, landscape with lots of sunlight.

I stayed here for a few days by myself, it was very clean, super friendly staff, very reasonably priced, and the pool was so perfect. The only thing one might not like, is that it's a 5 minute walk from the beach, but c'mon, it's only 5 minutes. Definitely worth checking this place out.

This is a small hotel run by its owner and a very small staff, has more a feeling of staying at a guest house than of a regular hotel... swimming pool is great, we saw iguanas and monkeys in the property. We booked a 2 level room with a kitchen; we were 5 people and there were 4 beds so... More

The pros are that Gabriela and the staff are very nice and helpful. They respond very quickly via email and were able to book tours for us when we got there. The pool was lovely. I enjoyed having such a large apartment to stay in. It was a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The cons are that on Wednesday nights, the... More

On our family trip through NW Costa Rica this past week, this place was the most economical. We booked our stay directly with Gabriela Schaerer (the friendly & beautiful site manager) who explained the room options. We chose a place where our whole family could share a large, 2-level room. In our room we had 4 beds (two of them... More
