Very clean room, simple but effective. Everybody is so helpfull and friendly. They are really doing everything to make your stay worth. The restauarant has very good food in the evening and the bakery such nice french bread, croissants in the morning. Ten min walk from all the shops

For me this place was perfect.nice clean affordable room right on the beach.its on the north end of town.far enough away to feel secluded but an easy walk into town.the attached bakery was really nice...fresh delicious coffee and chocolate croissants for breakfast every day 😀 Very peaceful vibe and and amazing spot on the beach for the amazing tamarindo sunsets.

Nice hotel right on the edge of the Tamarindo beach. Breakfast is not included but there is a french bakery on site that does some nice bits and bobs. We found the bakery and the hotel to be overpriced in comparison with other places we have visited in CR, but it is in a very touristy location.

I loved my stay here. The location was great, a 1 minute walk from the beach, and the owners were amazing! They helped with dinner options and activities to do! We loved the ATV tour which was recommended from the hotel! I would definitely stay again if I go to Tamarindo and the price was a great deal!

This was a very nice hotel, close to the beach. The place is run by a French family, they were very helpful when we needed to organize trips (turtle-watching and a boat tour of the estuary). The hotel has a French bakery and a bar. From the garden one gets directly onto the beach. This portion of the beach is... More

This is a nice hotel a little away from the center of town (10 minutes walk). Unfortunately, due to the heavy rains before we got there, the beach was not accessible from the hotel. It was probably fixed in the days after we left but during our stay, we had to walk to the first access from the main street.... More

We needed a place to stay for one night as the house we were renting was not ready yet. We found this one night in Tamarindo. The rooms are very average and nothing fancy. I was told we would have the Jr. suite. Don't let that fool you. It did not look anything like a Jr. Suite. The only thing... More

I was given this room as my Witch's Rock Package was during peak season and they contracted out rooms to La Laguna del cocodrilo. It was a great location and away from all the hustle and bustle so you were about to sleep. Beautiful gardens and delicious bakery onsite.

Stayed the the Cocodrilo as an "overflow" from Witches Rock Surf Camp. As stated in the title this hotel could easily get 5 stars by just changing a few things. I stayed in Suite 11 which is pretty much as described on the website. The room itself was OK but there were some things that bothered me. First the bed.... More

While the bakery, on site, is absolutely DELICIOUS, accommodations did not add up to quite the same standards. The rooms looked nothing like the website, although we could see the ocean from our window, which we were originally told it was just the garden view. The bed was simply two (very low) twin beds, pushed together. Extremely uncomfortable. Crazy amounts... More
