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

Marielos was an excellent place to stay. Great price, good vibes, clean, safe, free secure parking and beautiful gardens. Everyone was very friendly staff/owner/guests. The owner is a Costa Rican and made the stay even better by teaching my friend and I about the animals we were seeing, as well as sharing cashew fruits and home grown organic bananas with... More

We weren't planning on visiting Tamarindo, we just sort of ended up there. When we got to town there were a variety of places to stay at all different prices. There's big resorts or other "chain" motels, and a few small independent places. There was one lady who offered to take a shot of tequila with us upon check-in. The... More

Despite the development in Tamarindo Cabinas Marielos remains a paradise. Marielos maintains the most beautiful gardens and the place remains clean and quiet. I have actually been returning to this place since 1999.
