We stayed here for four days. We stayed in one of the rooms and they were simple, clean and comfortable. Not luxury but elegant. The grounds are beautiful and beach is postcard perfect. Short walk to town or 5 dollars one way for taxi. The pool area is small but appropriate for this hotel. A nice refreshing change from the... More

My husband and I wanted to stay in a place where the hotel wasn't a "traditional" hotel where you have room after room, with many floors; we wanted what we normally see in the South Pacific without the outrageous price. Hotel Capitan Suizo delivered--while the Hotel isn't cheap, I found that it was well priced for what one gets at... More

We stayed in rooms overlooking the garden (which they all do). The gardens are a real highlight since the property was built around the trees and in the midst of it is the pool where the water was at a perfect temperature and you have nature all around you. If that includes some ants in your room, magpie jays looking... More

My Wife and I honeymooned at Capitan Suizo for a week in July and it was a wonderful place. The property is well maintained, the bungalow was great and the staff is so friendly and attentive. Will definitely return to Tamarindo and Capitan Suizo. Shout out to Leo and Luis for taking us out and showing us a great time!

We chose Capitan Suizo because of the overwhelmingly positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and we agree--it's a lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The management and staff went out of their way to be helpful, and they were always friendly and cheerful. Rosa, the concierge, helped us arrange airport transportation prior to our arrival and excursions during our stay. We had... More

We were a group of 10 family members traveling from AZ USA. Arrived late at night to a warm welcome and smiling face. The first thing you will notice is everyone is very friendly, regardless of their job responsibility at the Resort. We stayed in the 4 BDR Suite above the Lobby. It was huge, clean, and perfect for 8... More

Tamarindo is a very busy little town. We were happy that we stayed just outside of the hustle and bustle. Everything you need is at the resort but town is an easy walk away. We stayed in bungalow 2. I was traveling with my nephew and concerned that they there was a king bed and a futon. The futon was... More

My wife and I staid a few nights in the beachfront room and it was perfect. The gardens at the hotel were beautiful and always everything was maintained to the highest standards. From our first exposure at check in with Catherine ( who by the way is wonderful!) till the day we sadly left the lobby with our bags packed... More

Capital Suizo was a perfect hotel for our family. We vacationed with our 3 adult children and had a fabulous time. Our room had 4 bedrooms, living room area and large lanai. It was so spacious and comfortable for everyone. All the rooms are very close to the pool, beach and restaurant/ bar. The staff was very accommodating and SO... More

Our family (kids are 10, 8 and 6) stayed here mid June for a week and we absolutely loved it! The hotel is the perfect set up with the great pool and being right on the beach. My kids would go back and forth from beach to pool all day. The staff were amazing. We loved every meal we had... More
