My friend and I came came to CR on a fishing vacation. We stayed at Capitan Suizo for a week and loved it. The setting is beautiful set back from the beach amidst lovely landscaping. From the beach you hardly know it's there. The room and bathroom were comfortable and very spacious and the service was as good as it... More

We loved our stay at this romantic, unique hotel. This hotel is down at the quiet end of beautiful, uncrowded Tamarindo Beach with its white sand, warm water, great sunsets, and good surfing. The property features beautiful gardens and quite a bit of wildlife, including a resident group of howler monkeys. There is no room service dinner, but the restaurant... More

We stayed here on May 27-31 for a wedding that was in Tamarindo. The hotel staff was magnificent in taking care of us. We had an issue the first night with our room and they all went over and above to solve our issue and took extremely good care. Leo in the restaurant was excellent and the Casado they serve... More

We traveled here over Memorial Day weekend with our family. We had a fantastic stay! The rooms were clean and comfortable (we were in bungalow 71) and the AC worked well. The service was fantastic at the front desk and at the restaurant and Rosa and Rahul were very helpful with restaurant reservations and excursions. The breakfast buffet was fantastic... More

Nine of our family members met at Hotel Capitan Suzio to celebrate my husband's birthday last week. We had a fantastic time and the hotel staff, rooms, food, beach could not have been better!!! We felt like the staff was like family once we left the hotel. They went out of their way to make sure that all of our... More

We had a wonderful time at Hotel Capitan Suizo. The hotel itself is lovely with minimal rooms and minimal guests. The room was wonderful with a large patio, ceiling fans and AC. One drawback is that the AC didn't really reach the bathroom, so that certainly got a little hot and steamy. Also, the free wifi was a bit inconsistent,... More

After much research, my fiancé chose the 1st 5 days at Capitan Suizo and we can't stop talking about how amazing it was. Beachfront air-conditioned suite with a sliding glass door, large room and bathroom with a front patio where we swayed on our own hammocks. About a ten minute walk into town on the beach or street which we... More

Rooms were super clean, comfortable, breakfast was excellent and all the staff were super.....especially Rosa at the concierge desk who helped me in my transportation issues. Access to beach was superb and the Friday night bar- b - que is... More

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
