I've stayed in one of the rooms that is made for 5 or + people and let me say that it was a pleasant stay.
Let's be honest here, the hotel is way cheap and Tamarindo is a town made out of tourism. I was really scared first because I read all the reviews saying that there were bugs on the bed, no hot water (Not necessary by the way because Guanacaste is way too hot). But the room was clean, no bugs of course, hot water in bathroom and the gardens and pool are really great.
I will say this hotel is for travelers that want to stay in budget.
The hotel has good service overall but you'll still need a few things upon arrival that aren't considered and they're basics in other hotels.
Things you'll need: Soap, toilet paper, shampoo, a towel to go to the beach. They do offer a towel but just to use it by the pool or in the room (you can't take it to the beach).
Things to consider: At least in where I've stayed, the bathroom is a sub-construction inside the room, therefore they share the same roof. What I mean is that the bathroom is not compleately sealed; it has a door of course but you can hear everything inside and outside of the bathroom because the walls don't go all the way up.
Another thing is that the hotel doesn't have house keeping or room service; If you're planning to stay more than let's say 3 to 4 days, ask if they can send someone to help you cleaning the room. (I've just stayed for the weekend)
So, here it is... what I can say is that the price is right for this hotel, you'll get a good night sleep, close to the beach and close to downtown Tamarindo and nightlife. The pool and common areas are great.
