My boyfriend and I were visiting Tamarindo and totally torn between Luna Llena and Pasatiempo hotel, so we did half our time at one and half the time at the other. I loved Luna Llena because it was a very cute and unique place. I liked that it had some costa rican charm, that's why I was drawn to it.... More

I'm conflicted as I write this review... While I did enjoy my time at Luna Llena (and Tamarindo in general) the hotel is WAY over priced for what it offers. Let me start with the Negatives: For me, THE BED. Seriously. Why so hard? I get that it is touted as an orthopaedic mattress but since when does that mean... More

Super cute place. Really friendly, warm staff. Good price. Love the end of town it is on. Kahiki is on the corner and is a friendly bar with a nice breeze. El Pescador is at the end of the street on the beach and is super chill and delicious. And the end of the beach this is on is not... More

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...
