I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Sunni Daze while traveling through Costa Rica in January, 2014. Let me just say folks this place is a gem! Truly a diamond in the rough! I found my room to be very clean/immaculate and quite spacious. The air conditioner was nice and cold which was great, as it was very hot... More

We stayed here while passing through Tarcoles. The town itself is somewhat 'rustic' but beautiful. Lots of bird watching to be done! Scarlet macaws nest in a tree you can see from the hotel. The website is somewhat misleading, but I understand the owner is trying to get business. However, the hotel is quite literally in the shadow of two... More

My family stayed at Sunni Daze hotel our first and last nights in Costa Rica. I choose Sunni Daze because it was located in (Tarcoles) is a small fishing village with almost no obvious tourist activity and because I understood that the Scarlet macaws come to feed in the trees in the morning and evening. We were not disappointed. Tarcoles... More

We've spent the last days of our holidays in Costa Rica here and were very glad we did this! This hotel is very well located (right across a supermarket) and you have very good walking trails around Tarcoles. Randy is a very kind person who will kindly explain a map of those trails to follow. He can also book tours... More

We stayed at Villa Sunni Daze for one night on the last leg of our Costa Rican adventure. It was great! The room was large, clean and air conditioned. The kids loved the pool and the TV (they'd been without for 8 days). It's only .5 KM from a really nice, empty beach. Randall was nice and very helpful before... More

We stayed at Sunni Daze 3 nights in November 2012. We were a bit disappointed because the pics on the Sunni Daze Website show in part surroundings in the village of Tarcoles and not the Villa Sunni Daze. The rooms are okay, but smell a bit musty, especially when you know the building is not very old. During the 3... More

I've been to Tarcoles several times and staying at Sunni Daze has been a great experience for me each time. Nice rooms, very clean and comfortable at a great price.

I single mindedly visited the Costa Rica Pacific Coast for fishing. I booked Sunni Daze as my base from which to fish in the sea, fish in the river, trek in the Carara National Park, Zip Line in Los Suenos and eat myself silly on mangoes, watermelon, pineapples et al. The room had a double bed plus two bunk beds,... More
