“Felt like home, only in paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We stayed at the mirador in November 2012. Chris and Peter made us feel at home immediately. Amazing views, followed by incredible sunsets in Tamarindo. The BnB is immaculately kept, but comfortable and welcoming. The breakfasts that the girls cooked were as good as any 5 star hotel or fancy brunch restaurant. Chris and Peter had lots of suggestions and advice that made navigating Tamirindo easier, not that it was hard, but it's great to get a 'local's' perspective. there were little touches throughout our stay that were so special! It was just above and beyond anything we were expecting. We felt free to come and go as we pleased. We loved the pool, views, cocktail hour every night, free WiFi, breakfasts and rooms. Can't say enough great things about Chris and Peter and their amazing BnB.

i went to tamarindo for a quick solo getaway to decompress. peter and chris, owners of the mirador B&B, did practically everything to ensure that my vacation was truly relaxing and great. ahead of time, they emailed about the activities that i might want to book, and once i got there, it really did feel like i was a valued guest in their home. they weren't intrusive, but were around to help with last minute ideas including restaurants and beach recommendations. i stayed in one of the rooms by the pool which was wonderful -- could get a bit noisy with guests at night, but not too bad.

this B&B is not smack dab in the middle of the town, so be aware of that. everyday i would want into town and then make it a point to walk up the hill back to the B&B. i definitely got a workout, but for others, there are taxis available for just a few dollars.

other things - breakfasts were lovely, always with fruit and another main dish. the coffee is fantastic. wifi was spotty from the rooms by the pool but very good/fast on the main level.

would have no qualms in recommending the mirador to other travelers, and hope to be back....

I really can't put into words how wonderful our 4 night stay at the Mirador was. Staying here is like staying in the house of close friends. The bed and breakfast itself is absolutely gorgeous. Our room was beautiful and super clean, and the view was amazing. The absolutely delicious fresh made breakfast what a wonderful way to start each day.

The owners, Peter and Chris, are 2 of the nicest guys you could ever meet. They went out of their way every day to make sure that our stay was perfect. All of the activities and restaurants they recommended to us were fabulous. My birthday happened to fall on a day when we were there, and they were nice enough to get a little dessert and put candles on it to sing happy birthday. It's this personal touch that makes this a very special place in Tamarindo.

My husband and I really can't say enough wonderful things about our stay here. It was so much better then staying at an impersonal hotel. I would never think of staying anywhere else if we take another trip to Tamarindo. It was actually sad to leave because we had so much fun hanging out with Peter and Chris. Thank you both for such a wonderful stay. We had an amazing time!

My review is almost a year overdue, as we stayed in February of 2012. Our stay with Peter and Chris was wonderful. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were visiting friends instead of staying in a hotel. They were both social and friendly, offering great recommendations, but also allowing you to have your own space and privacy as needed. We took advantage of all of their restaurant recommendations and it really enhanced our trip. The room was spotless and had high quality linens. Also the breakfast was plentiful and wonderful. They provide a cocktail hour, where you can watch the sunset together, it was great to talk to other guests before heading out to dinner.

Stayed at Mirador for a week over New Years and it was amazing. Peter & Chris are great hosts; so welcoming & down to earth. They really do go above & beyond. From the moment we walked through the front doors until the day we departed we had absolutley no worries. Our intention was to relax, get sun and have fun. We ended up with so much more. Peter & Chris took care of airport transfers, excursions, dinner reservations and were always willing to take the time to answer any questions we had. The breakfasts were GREAT! The property is so beautiful & maintained. Viewing the sunset and howler monkeys from the back deck was truly a highlight. We usually like to try new places & destinations; however there is no doubt we will return to the Mirador!

This was my first trip to Costa Rica. I really enjoyed staying at the Mirador in Tamarindo. Peter and Chris are very welcoming and will help to plan any adventures you're interested in. We had airport transfers and everything was very organized and on time. The bed and breakfast was clean and the morning breakfasts were nice. Very good stay, and I recommend the Mirador to future travelers!

Peter and Chris have a terrific B&B, with the best views! The fishing trip they put us on with Captain Michael was fantastic. These guys really leave no detail unturned and very responsive. The B&B is top notch...very clean and welcoming.
