It was the end of a 5 week wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. Playa Del Coco, Samara, Carrillo were all very inviting and a wonderful stay. My wife and I spent our last night at the Hotel Pueblo Dorado in Tamarindo. This hotel is clean, have a nice pool, small breakfast is also very good. It is a little out of the action, the room was very noisy and there were a lot of ants in the room. What I am complaining about is the young girl at the front desk; I believe her name is Georgina or something like that. She did not smile; she was not very helpful with anything. The only time she smiled was the next morning when her boss was there. We decided to stay in for dinner since my wife what not feeling well and they do not have a dining room. The walk to town was a good 10 or 15 minutes. Normally it is not a problem for us but not this time. We asked the front desk if there was a pizza delivery and she said no without even looking. We were disturbing her from her search for a new cell phone on the internet. We started looking at advertising brochure on her desk to find out that the ones she had were many years old and they were all closed according to her. Another incident that we notice the morning of our departure, we were waiting for our bus transfer to the airport and a lady came in wearing her swimsuit with a bag in her hand. She asked this Georgina girl to keep the bag behind the desk and the girl said a flat NO. The lady said I’m John’s wife (obviously the couple were staying there) and she again said no. The lady said let me speak with your boss, the boss lady came out of the office and said yes, yes leave me your bag no problem I will put it in my office. All this to say, if you decide to stay at this hotel, I hope you have a different front desk person than this not so friendly girl. For over $120.00 for a one night stay, I expect a much better service. I will never go back there but I will return to Costa Rica.
