I stayed at the zullimar hotel from Jan 1st to Jan 5th, I had a great experience, I stayed there with 4 friends and the room was big and the location was perfect, the people who works there were very friendly and knowledge of the area. I had a great experience overall and we come to Tamarindo every year and... More

Perfect location if you do not have a car, practically everything is within walking distance. Noisy in the evenings and at night particularly in the weekends due to the bars in the neighborhood. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room furnishings are in need of an upgrade and my bathroom did have some issues. No WiFi in the rooms.... More

First of all, I booked this hotel on Booking.com under the name "Hotel Mar Rey". Why the place has two names, I do not know, but no one knows it as Mar Rey, so it was nearly impossible to find. The hotel is LOUD. In the morning I was woken up to screeching tires and screaming outside, which lasted all... More

This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a moderately priced, clean, and central location in Tamarindo. The room had a crankin AC and fan, which were necessities in the humid heat when we were staying there. The service was good and the people working there were very accommodating. I liked the fact that it was gated and they... More

I've been in this hotel from may 18th to may 25th and it was absolutely amazing. Great service, installations and the pool is amazing. Literally 30 secondes of walk from downtown Tamarindo with all its restaurants and bars. Especially useful when all the staff speak good english, it makes requests a lot more easier.

straight to the point, this place was perfect for OUR vacation of 4 days. Very central, not much for amenities, but if you're gonna get something central, its because you wanna go out right. Very clean room / excellent pool, with both sun and shade / good security / very centrally located for the price. Close to yoga / there... More

Myself and my sister stayed here for 4 nights. We arrived in Tamarindo late in the evening. We had provisionally booked a hostel which double booked us! We found Zullymar the next morning and booked in straight away. This was a clean room with a view of the pool. It has mainly american holidaymakers which seemed to return every year.... More

Zullymar ended up being great for us. I was with a group of 8 people and they had 3 rooms for us right by the pool. The front desk guy was super helpful and even took us to some of the surf breaks about the area we may not have found otherwise. Wish i could remember his name. Pool area... More

This hotel is average by Costa Rica standards but very good for its location. Situated at the end of the main road into Tamarindo just about 100 meters from the beach, Hotel Zullymar has patios or balconies overlooking the outdoor pool. Iguanas and exotic birds are everywhere which lends credence to the "Pura Vida" lifestyle. My only issue with the... More

This was my second stay at this hotel. It is in the perfect location on the main strip.The rooms are basic but they are clean. I love that it has a nice pool because the two days we were in Tamirindo it was extremely windy which made the beach (across the street) not so appealing. It also has parking at... More
