Myself, wife and 12 y/o son have stayed here twice in the past and intend going back for a 3rd visit. All the staff are more than helpful, rooms large, airy and clean with a/c. Good breakfast of toast, coffee and fresh fruit, awesome sushi bar at night. Howler monkeys in the trees,night time security guard. Really, I can't think... More

After the bad experience we had with Mango Center Condominiums (see my reviwe about that place), we were lucky enough to find Luna Llena hotel. Her owner is a very nice Italian who kindly acceped 30 people last minute request. She was very helpful with our situation, and the place was just what we needed. The hotel is close to... More

I live in CR and was in Tamarindo on business. I brought my kids with me and we stayed in a bungalow. The kitchenette was great with the kids and included a 4 burner hot plate, microwave, pots and flatware/plates/glassware for 4. The shower had hot water and bathrooms were clean. Loved the little loft with 2 single beds and... More

We had a wonderful visit to Tamarindo and enjoyed staying at Hotel Luna Llena. My family and I felt safe, the rooms were clean and breakfast was wonderful. The wifi was spotty, yet we are on vacation in the a foreign country so some expectation management is required. I appreciated the security guard conducting rounds during the night and ensuring...

If you get the chance come here, rooms, swimming pool, grounds, restaurant great. Staff very friendly. Sunset cocktails on the beach complimentary. Very smart compared to Tamarindo itself. Well designed just lovely and relaxing.

Hotel Luna Llena is a charming hotel, if/when I go back to Tamarindo I will definitely stay there. The hotel is run by a lovely Italian lady (who cooks absolutely delicious food too!!) and all of the staff were extremely accommodating and really made my stay! The bungalow rooms are great, we had a big and very comfortable bed on... More

We were back home in Canada as of April 13th. I see a transaction posted on my credit card account on April 20th (a week AFTER we had left!)... More

We stayed at Luna Llena for Easter weekend plus 3 more days and we had the most amazing time. The breakfast was just right, not to small but not to big. Eggs, rice n beans, fruit an pancake's. The coffee and mango juice was so good. Our bungalow was so much fun. Huge bed, huge living room and a great... More

We just came back from a week at Hotel Luna Llena and had a wonderful experience. We normally stay at large all inclusive resorts when we travel so this was a completely different experience for us and it was a very good one. The owners, Pino and Simona, couldn't have been any more accommodating and really go out of their... More
