I'm almost hesitant to write a review about this hidden gem in Tamarindo for fear of it becoming too crowded and popular. Very selfish of me, I know! But this little hotel gets it right. The location on the beach, the French bakery, the hospitality...perfect. Imagine strolling outside of your room and sitting down to a delicious breakfast in a... More

My son and I checked in as part of the Witch's Rock surf school and were happy enough with the clean and basic accommodation. The owners and very kind and helpful and will respond very quickly to any concerns. We would have appreciated heavier curtains on the sliding glass doors to keep out sun and to block out the light...

My wife and I stayed here for one night and would not recommend it for several reasons but before I get into that, I'd like to say that the price was low and the staff were very friendly. They also let us off the hook on the second night of our reservation and let us check out after the first... More

Stayed here in Tamarindo for 4 nights. The food is unbelievable, between the french bakery in the morning (can you beat fresh croissants and latte?) and fantastic, fresh fare for lunch and dinner from "El Chef-O" (a Salvadoran born chef trained in Denver now testing his skills on the Tamarindo crowd). Best fish tacos I've ever eat. Rooms are simple,... More

Got booked here since Witches Rock was full, the location to the beach was perfect. The place meets my list of laidback requirements. Be advised, this is not meant to be a luxury stay. Its rustic, on the beach and perfect for surfers or someone wanting that close access to the beach. There were a couple of mosquito's in the... More

Stayed here after booking surf vacation with Witch's Rock Surf Camp and their hotel was full. The hotel was clean and friendly. Great French bakery at hotel. The Chef was awesome, Lobster, Steak, Tacos, whole Snappers and more. The food here was delicious. Location was great for surfing and close to town.

Stayed here after booking surf vacation with Witch's Rock Surf Camp and their hotel was full. I enjoyed my week here and stayed in one of the suites that had a kitchen which help. My only downside to my room was that there was no curtain in the shower so everyone walking on the street could see me show but... More

The second worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Lumpy mattress, air conditioning that was very loud but produced no cold air, and a leaky shower that generates two inches of standing water and lot dog Mosquitos. After spending two hot and mosquito-bitten nights here, I had nearly a lot my sanity.

My boyfriend and I booked this place after being referred by the 'witch's rock surf camp' as they were fully booked. We spoke to sandy on the phone because we couldn't make a booking on the Internet and were about to get on a bus for 5 hours. She was very helpful and told me to send an email through... More
