Great people that run it and help. In the heart of everything so expect loud music sometimes cause you are close to all of downtown. Great for walking distance. Wonderful staff. Will definitely be back. Loved every moment.

My husband and I stayed there for eight nights at the end of January 2016. We would recommend this hotel without hesitation! The owner and staff were courteous and service oriented at all times. They accommodated all our wishes which added to the enjoyment of our holiday in Tamarindo where we finished a month-long stay in this wonderful country.

Arriving in Tamarindo with no hotel reservation 3 days before x'mas and found this hotel after asking a local. Nicely tucked just far enough from town center, a few minutes walk and we enter this secured compound. Eve was most helpful and creative to find the right accommodation for us for 2 nights. Lucky for us, there was one apartment... More

I loved staying here while I was in Tamarindo. It's away from the hustle and bustle a bit, but there's a grocery store just a few steps away, which was very convenient. The beach is also still super close! The rooms are good, basic, but comfortable and a great price. Mini fridge is a plus because they have a kitchen,... More

Villas Macondo is a very nice, clean motel just minutes from the beach and right in town. We called two days ahead of time to book and the lady gave us a deal on a two bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. This was nice as we made our own breakfasts there before starting our day. All the rooms are... More

Villas Macondo offers amazing rooms: spacious, super comfortable beds, modern (flat-screen TV, nice showers, modern decor), clean and convenient. There is a kitchen in the complex, where you can cook your own meals, should you wish to. The rooms are equipped with a fridge and there is a table on the small terrace, which also has a hammock for relaxing... More

I stayed in a room close to reception, which had a king-size bed and a huge bathroom. It was wonderful, and I made use of the fridge and the tv. I love that all rooms had chairs and tables outside the room, along with a hammock. The pool was a real delight and just what you wanted on those hot... More

I stayed here due to the proximity to the beach and my Spanish/surf school; about a 3 minute walk. This quaint collection of casitas is located in the middle of town, but off the beaten path. This is also a very safe place to stay; it is gated and they offer a safe in your room. Tom and Samantha were... More

Villas Macondo is definitely a secret tipp for everyone staying in Tamarindo. The owner and staff are really nice and helpful, rooms are clean and the area in the center of the houses is really nice to relax and take a swim in the pool. Everything in Tamarindo is in walking distance from Villas Macondo and the beach is about... More
