I spent 3 nights at this hotel in May 2015. The hotel sits right on a gigantic, beautiful white sand beach. The rooms sit a bit off the beach in a lush jungle environment filled with birds, iguanas, monkeys, and happy happy guests. The modern, air conditioned rooms, food (especially the free breakfast) and variety of tropical drinks are all... More

This hidden boutique hotel is simply gorgeous located directly ON the beach. Our room was divine - the landscape makes you feel like you are in a fairy tale get away. The sand and surf are literally a few yards from you at all times. You dine while watching the surf and even relax at the pool with a view... More

Diego and his staff are so amazing. So kind, so accommodating, so helpful, especially with the grandparents (who had the best time). It was the perfect week in Tamarindo. The hotel is awesome and so well manicured and has the best animal entertainment, monkeys, iguanas, gorgeous birds (my favorite part of Costa Rica). Did i mention how yummy the food... More

This was our last stop in Costa Rica, after many days on the go this was a wonderful, place to relax whilst only a ten minute walk from all the activities and night life you could want. The hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant as were the people of Costa Rica generally. The food at the hotel was very... More

My husband and I stayed here for the last part of our honeymoon. We were so pleased when we pulled up and realized that it was at the quite end of playa Tamarindo. The grounds were beautiful. They really kept the natural feel to the property. Our room was off the pool. Nice size, clean and comfortable bed. The staff... More

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at Hotel Capitan Suzio and loved every minute of our stay. It is hard to say enough positive things about this well run, ecological conscious hotel. The staff are fantastic, so is the food, location on the beach, proximity to town, pool, food, wildlife, and beautiful gardens. I would love to stay here... More

I stayed with my wife here for three nights. I will make this post extremely easy to read and determine if its the right place for you. Before going to Tamarindo, I had many options to choose from, overall, this hotel seem to have had the best review and rated high by other reviewers, so I gave it a shot...... More

Beautiful boutique hotel right on the beach. Close to town, but not that close. Easy walking. Great sand and waves. Amazing sunsets. Food and drinks are exceptional. Guaro Sour is a must by bartender Luis Diego. Loved the staff. Vicincio the restaurant manager makes you feel so at home. All the managers make a point to meet and greet you.... More

I would have to write a novel to give Capitan Suizo the justice it deserves. We stayed in a Beach Bungalow, and the Location, Staff , Food , Wildlife Encounters , Ambiance , Saftey and Staff would get a second mention , Fantastic Experience that we will never forget... Just Go there !!! 11 / 10

We were greeted warmly by staff members. The wait staff were always cordial and quick to respond to any request. Dining at the restaurant was always a pleasure. Any time we needed taxi service, one was found within a few minutes. We could kayak, surf, and swim right from the hotel. Rooms were cleaned quickly and efficiently. This is a... More
