“Loved it here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This was our second stop in Costa Rica, and I was nervous about the hotel since the first one was so awesome, I thought nothing could compare. Boy I was wrong. The hotel was beautiful, quiet, peaceful, and near everything. I loved it. The restaurant was delicious and the pool was gorgeous. I also loved how we didnt have to drive anywhere, everything was in walking distance, a short walking distance... it was actually nice staying away from all of it but being so close to the beach, shops, and restaurants/bars. I would 100% reccomend staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in 17, gorg view of the sunset

This hotel is beautiful. There are iguanas everywhere and we happened to catch some monkeys in the tree too. The property is absolutely gorgeous.
The poolside is comfortable and the pool is a great temperature to cool off in after a long day in the Tamarindo heat. Plus they have a basketball hoop in the pool that was a lot of fun.
The beds where very comfortable and the rooms where clean. There where a lot of ants in the bathroom and I think they might have a flea problem but that is something we came across at the multiple places we stayed at over the course of our trip.
The few snacks and one dinner we had there was tasty. However the breakfast buffet left something to be desired. The eggs where often watery looking and a bit blue in color. The eggs along with the rice and beans often had a fishy taste to them. Plus you have to get there right when the buffet opens or they run out of everything fairly quick.
All in all though I loved this hotel. It was comfortable and accommodating. It had its own private trail that made for easy access into the heart of Tamrindo and a hop, skip and jump away from the beach. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Me and my friend stayed at jardin del eden for 8 nights in the end of march. Location is great, only 100 m to the beach but far away from the busy street so it's very nice and relaxing. Breakfast is ok but not a lot to choose from. The service in the restaurant was awesome, Roger, Ruiz & Espinoza where very service minded and took great care of us, we had dinner one night and it was delicious ( Tamarindo fish). There was always a lot of free chairs by the pool and some hammocks under the palm trees which was the perfect place for an afternoon nap. Would defiantly recommend the place if you're looking for a nice little hotel instead of a large resort.

We recently found this charming , quiet and very pleasant dining room in the centre of a busy town ! It was only a few steps from the main street . The dining room was lovely , the food delicious and our waiter very helpful and friendly . I think his name was Brian. It was so impressive we returned a second time and we were only in the town for a week . However , I did not check out the rooms but the atmosphere was perfect .

Friendly staff, quiet setting away from busy main street of Tamarindo but still right by the beach. Clean rooms, bar/restaurant, and gorgeous pool area-great for couples (we went for our honeymoon). Only complaint is the restaurant doesn't serve Costa Rican food like most places in Tamarindo. I would reccommend it to anyone!

We arrived in Tamarindo without a hotel reservation and this was the second place we looked at. They offered us a choice of rooms and we chose the "superior", mainly because it had a big balcony with a sea view. We originally booked for 2 nights, extended it to 5 nights and ultimately until the end of our holiday giving 8 nights in total. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Everything works (not always the case in other hotels). The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the chef produces really excellent food. The hotel is back from the main road and therefore very quiet but has a private path giving a short walk to the beach. We had a really lovely time.

Look out for the skunk and the many iguanas.

This place is very clean and peaceful. It's a very small well maintained hotel about 100yds from the main strip and ocean. I would not stay on the main road because of dust and noise. I would rather walk a bit up the slight hill to the units. Great vacation with good food n drinks! Did the Hacienda El Roble zipline tour and it was the highlight of the trip a must do. They have the best ziplines bar none.
