I checked out others. This is my 4th stay here. That factoid should tell you something. Safe. Secure. Clean. Pleasant. Nice gardens and swimming pool. The town is fun. Lots of restaurants by the beach. VM is located next to a decently supplied supermarket. It is far enough from the main road but just a 2 minute walk to restaurants... More

If you like affordable rates, phenomenal customer service from all the staff and a nice place to stay then this is your best bet in town. 1 block from the beach and all the shops you can't beat it. I don't stay anywhere else in Tamarindo and you shouldn't either. Enough said.

On a leap of faith, I traveled here solo with my then 1 1/2 and 3 year old. I rented one of the two bedroom apartments and I can't say enough of how wonderful it was! The apartments were clean, the pool was wonderful--with a special 2 foot or so area, perfect for the little ones! It was located near... More

Did someone seriously complain in a review about coconuts falling on the roof and making too much noise?!?......lol. I am in my 40's and have paid my hostel dues. At this point in my life I still want to travel frugally, but I want my own room and a hot shower. Villas Macondo is that and more. The rooms, grounds,... More

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks while we took Spanish classes. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was refreshing. We liked that there was an outside covered kitchen and wood burning fire pit so we could make some of our own meals (since the restaurants were a little expensive.) Centrally located and a short walk... More

This is one of the best places we stayed in on our trip through Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Comfortable rooms with private bathroom, a swimming pool and incredible helpful and friendly staff. If possible they'd do anything for you. Breakfast is not included (the hotel has no restaurant) but there is a supermarket just 50m away. The beach is... More

I will start off by saying that the location of this hotel is very close to the beach (less than 5 minutes away) and one block away from the busiest parts of town. The price of the hotel was reasonably priced for all of the amenities (pool, private villa, A/C, TV, safe, etc.). The grounds of the hotel are very... More

The stone road throws you off, I just "happened across" the hotel. Beautiful grounds, great pool, office staff is awesome. For Tamarindo the price was very reasonable as well, highly recommend the place! Because I found this place I extended my stay in Tamarindo an extra night.
