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.

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
