A few steps and you are in the beach. Now, keep in mind, rooms are small, this is no hotel, but who wants to stay on a room when Tamarindo, Langosta and Avellanas beaches are around the corner? Its simple, but nice. Safe and quiet at night. Wake up early, go to surf and enjoy Guanacaste with a good price/value... More

The room is adequate but the cabins were built 25 years ago and looked it. But the Costa Rican owner Marielos is charming and made me coffee one morning and invited me to share breakfast with her the following morning. It's right across the street from the ocean and is set in beautiful gardens. It is quite reasonable compared to... More

The room was small with poor lighting the a/c was off so there were ants and other insects in the room. We turned it on but the cleaning staff would turn it off. There was only one tap in the shower and the water was cool . The sheets were threadbare and there were no blankets only sheets. The cool... More

The beach is only a few steps away. The room we had was simple, but comfortable. AC, wi fi and hot water in the shower all worked perfectly. It's a really good place to stay in Tamarindo, as it can be expensive in that town. They have a beautiful garden. I would recommended it.

We got lucky to discover this place. We were shocked when we noticed it's location. Right in front of the beach. Our car stayed parked for 3 days... Didn't need it. First, we were greeted by Marielos and very sweet and kind woman. She is also one of a few Tican hotel owners in the area so it was really... More

Cabinas Marielos ist zweifelsfrei ein Paradies in dem tubulenten Tamarindo. Ein Ort der Stille und exakt das was wir gesucht haben. Sehr sauber. Super ruhig. Wie in einem anderen Post gelesen regt sich hier jemand über Ameisen auf. Der hat leider in Costa Rica nichts zu suchen. Das Hotel ist sauber, die Matratzen super bequem und der Eigentümer ist mehr... More

Pros: Great value for money- $35 a night for private cabina in Tamarindo is brilliant! Big clean and well equipped kitchen, 1 min from the beach, fantastic wi-fi, friendly staff, beautiful garden setting with lots of tropical fruit growing, lovely private cabinas with bathroom, good outside seating areas. Cons: Would have liked to have had a balcony room instead of... More

Three of us stayed here for two nights and we were very well accommodated. The room was very clean and the towels and bedding of decent quality. There was adequate storage space and the patio was a nice spot to take a cold beer. Wifi worked fine. The location is perfect- only a minute to the beach and a few... More

Rooms are ok. Small bathroom, natural temperature shower. Old beds and sheets. I have tried both a/c and fan and with both i have rested fine. Suggestion: Try the balcony rooms! Many shops, restaurants and pubs at walking distance. Owner and staff are nice and gentle and willing to help. Doña Marielos always recomends what she likes, be it restaurants... More

Confortable rooms right accross the street from the beach, in the center of town so you can walk everywhere. The lodge has very clean confortable rooms with beautiful gardens and is away from the main street which makes tranquility. The place really gives you a feeling that you are in Costa Rica in town that has been commecialized and americanized.... More
