We had a "Superior" room that was air conditioned. It was incredibly spacious and clean. The grounds were beautiful and peaceful. I hope to come back very soon. The beach was great. The sunsets were the best I have ever experienced. The free breakfast was great. The other meals were also as good as any we found in town (all... More

Our family just returned from 6 nights at Capitan Suizo. We loved it! The location of the pool/bar/dining area near the beach made it ideal for us to watch our children while we enjoyed a little quiet time. Also, we didn't have to "pack up" for the beach as our room was a 2 minute walk away. The surf on... More

We loved our stay at Hotel Capitan Suizo. The staff was very friendly and professional. The beach was very nice and quite. If you want a relaxing beach holiday in Costa Rica with excellent service, it is worth the 4,5 hours driving from San Jose.

My wife and I stayed at Capitan Suizo in mid-March, and we loved it. The property is beautiful, green and verdant, filled with wildlife, contained. We were very comfortable in our bungalow. The food - complimentary breakfast and dinner - is outstanding. We wound up just staying on property, except for one night, for dinner because we enjoyed both the... More

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and glad we stayed at a small boutique hotel. We made our reservation with Jorge who very kind and accomodating. The grounds are so calming and peaceful, every meal was great. Loved the family of monkeys & iguana living on the property. Location is definitely key - not too far from town... More

This was our fist time visiting Costa Rica and a colleague of mine recommended Capitan Suizo. After reading the reviews and the recommendation, we booked and absolutely fell in love with the hotel and the area. From the moment you enter the hotel, everyone knows your name and will assist you with anything. Everyone who works at the hotel is... More

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and we did a lot of research to figure out where in the country to spend our vacation. We spent 4 nights at Capitan Suizo during the week before Easter. Despite being one of the busiest tourist times of the year, the hotel never seemed to be over crowded. We asked for... More

We had an amazing stay (March 2015). The property is clean and gorgeously maintained. Although a busy time of year for Costa Rica tourism, the restaurant, pool and beach never felt crowded and there were always comfortable lounge chairs to enjoy. Walk just a few minutes east on the beach and you can enjoy the busier atmosphere of town, walk... More

We just spent a wonderful spring break week. This was our third visit to Capitan Suizo, a few reasons: - terrific staff and management - easy travel time from the U.S. East Coast to Liberia airport then car to Tamarindo; - hotel is right on a fabulous beginner/intermediate sandy surfing beach - combination of serene hotel in quiet tropical garden...
