Really nice appartments with great view, especcially with sunset. The interior and kitchen are not modern and the rooms are big with good work airconditioning. Nice terace table and four chairs. Really nice pool, with lawnchairs and umbrella's. Few minute walk from downtown and supermarket in quit area. Exept for the howlermonkeys you hear sometimes its really nice and quit.

My cousin and I stayed at La Colina during our time surfing with Witch Rock Surf Camp down the road from this hotel during our stay. It was about a 5-7 (depending on how tough the waves were that day) minute walk from the camp and from the beach. It is very beautiful at the hotel; the views, the pool,... More

I was staying at la Colina, for 8 weeks starting in January, I was booked there through my language school, as they had no more space in their own compound. Turned out I was quite fortunate. Check in went without a hassle, and the rooms are quite nice as well! the top floors have a perfect sunset views, and the... More

I stayed at La Colina for almost a month back in the summer of 2006. We rented one of the top-floor suites and it was amazing. There were two bedrooms (a master with a queen, and a smaller room with two twin beds) as well as a large living room and a full kitchen. While the room and the hotel... More

La Colina Hotel is a very nice place! The view of the ocean is breathtaking, the on-site pool is one of the biggest I have seen at a small hotel and rooms themselves are very comfortable. This place is a short walk to the beach (300 meters) and I suggest renting a bicycle. Overall, this is a great value and... More

I've been there many times with my family and also with friends because for me it has the best view in Tamarindo and also a short walking distance to the beach. It's a great place to relax. The rooms are very comfortable and always clean. I truely recommend it :)

My husband and I stayed here for a week in April, and it was positively the best choice we could have made. The accommodations are really beautiful, clean and spacious with amazing views, and wonderful large balconies. We appreciated the ability to prepare our own meals and started each day with breakfast on the balcony. Close to the town, but... More

We found this to be an oasis. Just far enough off of the main drag to be exceptionally quiet and restful with incredible views. Lovely pool. Just lovely!! The rooms are colorfully painted and comfortable with very friendly maids. Felt completely safe and secure. There are kitchens in the rooms with full stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave. No restaurant or food on... More

I've been coming here for years, and I love it. I love that it's set apart from the energy of Tamarindo. I love that it's quiet, no frills and pea feel. I love that Hans doesn't tolerate boisterous guests. La Colina is a second home to me, and feels more like a residence than a hotel. You can prepare your... More
