“Off the Beaten Path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Hard to find hotel as it is tucked away up the hill and accessed by gravel road. The claim of 100 meters to beach is slightly exaggerated. Breakfast just ok, but did see monkeys in trees while eating in restaurant. Also in mango trees above private walkway to Main Street. Watch out for flying mangos, as the monkeys throw them at you. Good value, central location in town.

This place is a good value for the price. It had a very unique and nice interior. Very friendly staff. Servers at restaurant were a little slow. It is right in the middle of Tamerindo, across the street from the beach. The whole place is elevated on the hill overlooking the ocean. It is quite beautiful because the trees block out most of the other buildings.

tucked up in the hillside of Tamarindo this can't be missed. The price is right for incredible food, a wonderful tropical pool area and super friendly and helpful stafff. comfortable beds and great bathroom, too! would for sure go back.

Room Tip: Plan to stay at least 2 days one night to get in all the shopping, dining and playing that Tamarindo...

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 .
