We found this place driving the town trying to find a last-minute place to stay. It's a very nice compound owned by a German couple. There are 4 two-level apartments and about a dozen rooms that all face a central pool. Each room has an outdoor terrace with a table and chairs, a hammock, and a line for drying clothing.... More

This is the 6th or 7th time I have stayed at VM - that should tell you someting. I like the location (200 meters from the Beach), and the staff are very professional and courteous. The pool area is very relaxing and their open kitchen is very convenient. FYI: We purchase our food in the super market next to VM.... More

We stayed for a week. We are an Australian couple, here for warm weather. (It's winter at home). We loved our little room. The A/C was a blessing. It's hot outside. We used it as a base to go surfing. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The communal kitchen was useful. We hired a car and there was a... More

It is a very nice place to stay in Tamarindo. It is surrounded by trees and there is a nice pool for people who ldo not like to swim in the ocean. he staff is friendly and willing to help you. The place is about a 10 minute walk from the beach. There is a common kitchen available for those... More

If Tom, the owner, intended to create a mini Macondo with hints to the fictional town described in Gabriel García Márquez's novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude, then he has done a fine job because his Macondo has that delightful, magical touch too. From the moment you shut the gate behind you, a secluded laid-back colourful foliar oasis unfolds before... More

We stayed here for two nights - and it was perfect! We seriously considered staying much longer. The environment within the grounds is beautiful, and we spent a lot of time relaxing there. Quick walk to shops/restaurants/beach - made it a perfect location. The rooms/bathroom weren't the most pristine - but there was A/C, hot water, comfortable bed, a television... More

The villa has everything you need. The price is very convenient, the villa and pool is just perfect for families. The cleaning ladies work very well and they are so nice. We love it! We are planning to come back.

I travelled here solo from London to meet up with a friend from CA. I stayed about a week and wish I had a few more days as I felt like I was just really relaxing into the vacation. VM arranged for pick up from Liberia airport and everything went smoothly with someone from the office staying late to meet... More

We loved Villas Macondo! First, their staff were super helpful. Our luggage had been lost in our transit in Atlanta and the person working at the reception took care of calling the airline and got us our bags at the hotel the next day! Second, it's super close to the beach, good restaurants and grocery stores but far enough from... More

Couldn't have picked a better place to stay! At first I was slightly worried about leaving my car overnight but I had my own private parking. The pool was well maintained and perfect for everyday use. I would recommend this to everyone!! The owner was very helpful and the staff was extremely kind to me during my stay. All of... More
