My favorite place in Costa Rica and probably in my Top 5 places ever (in this price range). Such a beautiful, yet rustic place. Loved the layout and décor with the beach as the front yard, which included chairs, hammocks and a daybed. Candles lit the hallways at night. The beds were very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was great. The location is not in the thick of things, but that's what interested us - it's close enough! Eduardo and the crew were great. Eduardo was especially helpful in not only planning meals in Tamarindo, but also helpful in planning our one night stay in the San Jose area. We were 3 people total (me, my husband, and our best friend) and we all differed on the outside shower. Some of us liked it better than others, but all agreed a hand held shower nozzle with better water pressure and ability to clean out the fallen debris/leaves would have been better. The Howler monkeys howling late night on the first night was cool. The second night not so much, but it wouldn't keep me from staying there again. That's part of the charm of Costa Rica. It's their jungle and they are allowing us to share it with them. I was just so comfortable there that I was sad to leave. Stay as long as you can!
