Monkeys were super fun. Yes, they do go potty, but the management cleans it up promptly! Owner and side kick Ali are fabulous! Great to gather with other guests in outside sitting area! We made life time friends and would love to return! A gem in the rough, as facility is not like the Hilton, but neither is the hospitality... More

We had no reservation when we showed up to Tamarindo. The bus attendant from Santa Cruz brought us to Hotel Nahua. It was the best place we could of asked for. Great room at a great price with amazingly accommodating owner and manager. The place is set up to have a nice community feel. Also the trace and pool are... More

This hotel made me doubt Tripadvisor. After many great experiences in Costa Rica, I wound up staying here with my girlfriend and barely made it 1 night. The reviews were great so we thought everything would be at least ok...we were wrong. How are there so many great reviews?! I HAVE NO IDEA...unless the owners have figured out how to... More

By far, the best deal for the money. I stayed here for 2 weeks in July and I have never felt more at home. It's convenient to everything and near to the grocery story and Wayra where me and my daughter were taking classes. Gabriella, the owner, was so cool about everything. I loved the variety of guests that stayed... More

I did a lot of research prior to our 9 day trip to Tamarindo and decided to stay at Hotel Nahua. Cheaper options are out there but not as nearly as nice as this place. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay without 'breaking the bank.' The owner Gabby and her staff are... More

I read about Hotel Nahua on tripadvisor.com right before I went to Tamarindo to stay a few days. I had been traveling around Costa Rica for over a month. I showed up there one evening and rented a room. It was the best thing I had done since getting into Costa Rica. Gabbi and Alejandro made me feel right at... More

We arrived late in Tamarindo one night and did not have a reservation to stay anywhere. We asked around and were directed to the Nahua. When we first walked up the steps we knew we were in for a treat! Alejandro helps run the Nahua. He was one of the friendliest people we came across during our trip to Costa... More

Where to start when describing the Hotel Nahua.... It is in a perfect location; walkable to everything in Tamarindo, yet far enough off the main road so it is very peaceful. The hotel setup is great, with the hammock/shade/and pool area in the middle, all blanketed by a large tree filled with Howler monkeys. The rooms are very nice and... More
