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

We've visited Villa Alegre a number of times throughout the years, and the owners, Barry & Suzye have always provided a lovely setting and a relaxed atsmophere that allows you to do pretty much whatever you'd like. The beach is right outside and you can gather shells, find the tide pools, or simply wander along the sand. The pool is... More

Looking around in Tamarindo for accommodation I found by chance Villa Alegre, my dream villa. Situated practically on the beach, overlooking the ocean with the big waves, a nice pool, green garden, nice decorated rooms, a cosy living room, relaxing music, breakfast on the terrace and most important the friendly, warm hosts Suzye and Barry. They certainly make a unforgetable... More

Although we only stayed in Villa Alegre one night, we had a great experience. Barry met us at the door, gave us a quick tour, and gave us a ride to town to help us pick a restaurant for dinner. We had a relaxed stay for the night and a delicious breakfast with Barry and Suzye the next morning overlooking... More

Two weeks ago three of us stayed in the spacious Russian room and had two nights of comfort,peace and relaxation. We had not been to Tamarindo for several years and was astonished to see the growth and development. The Villla Alegre was just as we remembered it, however. Lovely grounds and common area including the infinity pool looking over the... More

We came to Villa Alegre with a large group of 25 people and Barry and Suzye did a great job making sure all of us were taken care of. They provided us with plenty of information on the local hot spots and made delicious breakfast for us every morning. In addition they had wonderful friendly housekeepers! The house itself is...

Spent four days at Villa Allegre in Feb, 2014. Barry and Susie are great hosts. We stay in B&B's often and this Inn rates high on our list. The Japan suite was spacious and unique. The pool was a perfect way to start and end the day. Breakfast were different and terrific each day. Sunsets at the entrance to the... More

A group of my friends (24 people) rented the entire Villa Alegre and it was an AMAZING experience. The house staff were some of the nicest people we met in Costa Rica. Suzye and Barry are very knowledgeable about the area and Costa Rica in general. They provided maps, directions, and catered to our needs as best they could. If... More
