This was our last stop on our Honeymoon and it was perfect. It is small and intimate location about a 10 minute walk from the craziness of Tamarindo; and had great beach access. The breakfast was great, service was very friendly and professional, and the grounds were well kept and clean. We also loved our daily run ins with the... More

One of my favorite hotels anywhere. The Capitan Suizo is first class in quality, comfort, atmosphere, access to a gorgeous beach, and delicious food. Their attention to detail and helpfulness in enjoying activities is excellent.

loved the large rooms and were happy to get 2 with a connecting door. Went with my husband, 2 kids (11 and 13) and my mom - so we needed 2 rooms. Unfortunately that made it quite expensive too! We had a lower room with a/c - which we used constantly. There was a meandering pathway around the property to... More

i just got back from my 5th visit to "Capitan Suizo". People ask me why I keep going back to the same place, my answer is easy, I love it there! The staff is always friendly, always accommodating, always there to answer any questions, call a cab, bring extra coffee to your room and like the Cheers bar, always there... More

This was our third visit to Capitan Suizo and every time we return, we are instantly transported to paradise. Natural, simple luxury in the most relaxing, idyllic setting - with a warm and welcoming staff who are genuinely happy to help with your every need. Rosa at the concierge desk, Max at the restaurant - everyone is just wonderful. Capitan... More

Best Hotel Boutique in Tamarindo. First class service. The restaurant and bar service is great, we felt very comfortable with Leandro, Luis Diego and Naty. Fully recommended. Great view from the ocean, everything organized and clean.

the staff here was great. the value for the money was good. however the location is not the type I go to costa rica for. a lot of touristy shops, you can go to Jaco or any of the resort towns in Mexico and get this type of vacation. surprisingly a lot of wildlife on the property but when you...

Since we have been to Capitan Suizo for the past five years the only thing I can say is that it is like returning home. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and they always remember you. The pool and beach are great and you feel as though you are in the jungle with all of the beautiful greenery. The staff... More

I discovered this hotel when I walked to lunch there from my nearby hotel, Cala Luna, which was booked by Costa Rica Vacations. I wish I had known about this place. It's located right on the quiet end of Tamarindo beach and has a great bar/restaurant and pool, steps from the sand. The rooms are scattered around a beautiful property... More

Whilst the room was perhaps a little dated and in need of a little love..we stayed on the first floor of the ocean front suite that is the only slight criticism we have. Capitan Suizo's is a wonderful friendly small hotel located on the beach of playa Tamarindo. What makes this hotel so special is the staff, they really can't... More
