My daughter and I stayed a this great hotel for six nights starting May 9th. Everything was wonderful. We had planned to eat at several places in Tamerando, but we ate all our meals at the hotel. The food was very good and we loved the outside eating. At night our waiter Max was very good and went out of... More

We spent 5 nights here last week. We absolutely loved this resort. We had an AC room as the bungalows were all booked. It was plenty spacious and very comfortable, minus the squeaky bed that made noise every time we rolled over! The bathrooms were large as well. Overall we found the accommodations to be simple, but more than adequate.... More

The location of this hotel makes it ideal. Beachside dining, fabulous garden, large pool, spacious room though a little plain. It was a great place to start our vacation. We spent two nights there before heading to the mountains.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this amazing, boutique resort! It is paradise found! Only a 10-15 min walk down the beach to town (which is nice to be away from it!), gorgeous grounds, abundant wildlife, outgoing staff, immaculate bungalows (#8), and a never ending beach at low tide... If you are reading this review, just go ahead and... More

This was my first time visiting Cosa Rica and travelled with my boyfriend. The photos and reviews were what sold us on trying this place out. I'm so happy we chose Suizo as it's not a tourist experience. It's a 10 minute walk to the touristy section of Tamarindo. The photos online are nice but even more amazing in person.... More

My wife and I stayed at Capitan Suizo in Playa Tamarindo for 4 nights in mid April. The room (#32) was very spacious and clean with large balcony overlooking lush gardens and pool. The beach was just beyond the pool. The staff was large in number, friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend the hotel. The hotel is home to orphaned... More

Thanks Capitan Suizo for making our family vacation a great experience. From the moment we checked into our bungalow with me my husband and 2 kids 16 and 12 we were captivated and felt like we were in a dream land. A+ for the welcoming staff, great clean room, outside shower to look up and see and hear the animals... More

We stayed here in March for 5 nights. Overall it was good but we did have some complaints. First off in my reservation I have specified adjoining rooms and was told that was not an issue . When we arrived we were told that adjoining did not mean connecting so our rooms were next to each other but not adjoining.... More

Hotel is about 1 km from center of Tamarindo. About 20 min walk which is not easy during hot days. Swimming pool is nice, but the kids own the pool most of the day. Would be nice if the pool were cleaned of leaves more frequently. Food (lunch & dinner) were ok. b'fast was fine. Staff was very helpful and... More

We stayed here 3 nights in late March. We had a ground floor room with a terrace opening into the gardens. Room was large (4 of us slept in the room), and a spacious bathroom. Loved the room and first floor location. We could be on the beach in minutes. Also, it was only a 10 minute walk to the... More
