My husband and I stayed in December for 13 days and had a wonderful time. The owners Barry and Susye were like a lost aunt and uncle that just happened to be running the best B&B in Costa Rica. They were kind, gracious and full of great advice about Tamarindo and the area. The B&B was clean and comfortable with... More

This B & B is unique with it's combination of location, comfort and the amazing hosts, Barry and Suzye. I have been visiting this place for the past 15 years and it has always suited my needs from a single woman with friends, as a couple looking for romance, and now a mother of two boys looking for family friendly....

SHORT; you won't find it any better, a very wonderful stay time!!! We will return to see our new friends. Wonderful stay to relax after almost three months on the road in central America. A morning dip in the pool and sunset cocktails.

After a hurricane changed our original vacation plans, we landed at villa Alegre and couldn't have been more happy with the change in plans. Villa Alegre offered an escape from the real world and placed us right in paradise. From early morning coffee on the ocean front bench to napping in poolside hammocks, Villa Alegre offered a true escape and... More

My fiancé and I just spent three awesome days at Villa Alegre. Accommodations are comfortable, the breakfasts fresh and fantastic and Barry and Suzie are extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We didn't spend a whole lot of time hanging out on the premises, as it's located on a quieter part of Langosta...which was a welcoming change from the hustle of... More

We stayed with Barry and Suzye for 4 wonderful days in paradise. Breakfast was different every day! The room was super clean (thank you Francis) and the homemade jams a treat every morning. The beach couldn't be closer and a short walk along its stunning shore took us right to Tamarindo where restaurants, water sports and tours abound. Monkeys. Birds... More

This gem if a bed and breakfast is located ON the beach! The owners, Barry and Suzye, welcomed us with a lovely, home cooked meal. If you're real nice, Barry may share his butter recipe. The gardens are magical. Birds and Howler monkeys can be heard, as well as the sound of waves crashing on the beach. This place is... More

We stayed 4 nights in August 2014 and were totally delighted! Barry & Suzye were very acomodating and the breakfast was outstanding! Not your usual buffet you get in most hotels; it is served plated at your seat on the fabulous terrace overlooking the pool and the ocean. Barry is an excellent chef! Suzye recommended some great restaurants for lunch,... More

Barry and Suzy really make this place shine. From restaurant recommendations to hand-drawn maps to "locals-only" beaches to the amazing breakfasts, you feel you're staying at the home of a good friend. The beach in front of the villa is beautiful and quiet. The walk to the center of town takes about 15 minutes. We're already thinking of returning with... More
