We could literally walk out of our cabin in the morning and be in the beach. There are hammocks right there, which is the perfect spot to get out of the wind and read / have a beer. The kitchens could be stocked a little better, but otherwise the place was great.

Thank you Ruthann, Marie, and all the staff at Casa Cook for another amazing stay. This is by far the best lodging in and around Tamarindo. We never forget our little slice of heaven. Dates book up fast so I highly suggest booking ahead if you want to stay here. It is truly an amazing place. Most guests are return... More

Casa Cook is a cute beachfront property with 4 units; 2 of which are cabinas on the beach. We stayed there from January 3 - 12, 2015 and loved every minute. Having never been to Costa Rica, we did do some research but looking online and reading about it, doesn't do justice to this lovely and friendly country that hasn't... More

Casa Cook is a hotel in Tamarindo run by Ruthann Cook. We took the "house" which is about a one-and-a-half minute drive from the hotel proper. The hotel proper is right on the beach, while the house is about a one minute walk from the beach. They are extremely friendly and want you to enjoy the place. The house was... More

I just returned from a trip to Costa Rica and was lucky to have landed at Casa Cook,through trip advisor. This little hotel is truly unique : isolated from noise and lights , you hear the waves and the rustle of monkeys in the trees.Our cabin was a few feet away from a magnificent beach and breathtaking sunsets. It feels... More

Maybe one of the nicest places i have ever stayed. Tamarindo is a great beach, but the stay at Casa Cook made it even better. Very quite, great staff and a cabana room that was right on the beach!!! We had a 14 days plan in other parts of Costa Rica, we almost decided not to leave Tamarindo.

The one thing it is not is large, loud or commercial so I guess it is not a bit of everything. It is however right on the beach, within walking distance to town and pretty much what you make of it. Lounge at the pool, surf right outside your door, BBQ some meat, drink some fresh coconut water, buy some... More
