I stayed at the Best Western Camino Tamarindo for 2 nights. It's a very nice and clean hotel. Nothing fancy but nice small resort type of hotel. The room rate is very reasonable/good value. The room are large and very clean with a combo safe and free wi-fi. The staff there are extremmmmmmely nice and helpful. They will do whatever they can to help with your local tours and your trip planning. The hotel is about 5-10 minutes to the beach. But you get a very peaceful and quiet location without all the beach traffic and noise. The hotel has a great large pool and its not crowded. I travel around the world about 6 months out of the year and stayed in many hotels and this is one of the rare time that this hotel and their staff make me feel special. The best part of the hotel is the staff. Especially Maria and Karen, both of them really help me with my tour planning. Very pleasant experience. Thank you Maria and Karen. I hope to see you all soon. Best Wishes, Ray, Washington DC.
