“Total relaxation, wish we could have stayed longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

This place was amazing. We stayed in the Luna Suite for about four nights. It was amazing and definitely worth the cost. The hammock and outdoor shower were were a fun touch. You can take a shower and listen to the beach at the same time. The staff was so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The hotel in general is very clean and very picturesque. The breakfast was amazing!!! Even if you don't stay at this hotel make sure that you go for breakfast. The location is good if you are not into being around a lot of people. Its very peaceful and romantic ( we got engaged while staying here) It was easy to take a walk/bike or cab to town. The only down side is there is no great beach to swim in right in front of the hotel. You have to walk about five minutes down the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking to get away and relax for a while. We would go back in a heart beat.

My boyfriend and I recently returned from a three night stay at the beautiful and cozy Sueno del Mar. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. From the moment we arrived we felt completely welcomed and at home in this beachfront oasis. We stayed in the Luna suite which was both spacious and lavishly decorated. Each night we were able to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. One our favorite parts were the breakfasts. A delicious three course meal was prepared for us each morning and always left us completely satisfied. The staff was also incredibly friendly and very accommodating if we needed assistance in booking activities or recommendations for dining. We are already thinking about a return trip and bringing some friends. Thank you Sueno del Mar for such a wonderful and memorable experience. Hope to see you again soon!

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!

Room Tip: Didn't see the other rooms, but thought the Queen rooms were great.

This place is absolutely amazing!! From the 3 course breakfast every morning, to the awesome views and secluded beachfront location, to the hammocks throughout the property, to the covered bed right off the beach, to the location of all the Tamarindo eateries and shops to the wonderful staff!! An absolute 5 star!! Best vacation ever...don't miss out if you want a nice relaxing stay right on the beach!!

Room Tip: The Luna suite is amazing! Large with an in room hammock and an OUTDOOR shower that is wonderful!

Our family of 15 rented Sueno del Mar for week and had the best experience imaginable! There were 9 adults and 6 children and we rented the entire B and B for the week. Children are not allowed at Sueno del Mar unless you rent the whole place. It was amazing to have the whole place to ourselves for an entire week. The breakfasts were out of this world, I was surprised to have only gained a few pounds that week! We ordered 3 meals from SUNSET CATERING which was located right next door to Sueno. The delivered the meals, served and cleaned up! I would highly recommend them, we couldn't have found a better meal in town. There was such a variety of scrumptious dishes and we had more than enough left over for lunch the next day. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Anything you need they will happily arrange for you from transportation to adventure trips to massages. 6 of us enjoyed massages right at the B and B. It was one of the best deep tissue massages I have ever had. The massage therapists were Kim and STacey-so worth it. Cost was 60 for an hour and worth every penny. The adventure day of ziplining, horse back riding, hot spas, etc... was so much fun. That too was arranged by the staff at Sueno. They made everything so easy. Like a previous reviewer stated, you do need to be aware of the howler monkey alarm clock, crabs in the shower, mosquitoes, and damp air. But if you want a truly unique place full of charm and relaxing places to sit, read and sunbathe in addition to looking for shells, surfing, walking, watching sunsets and enjoying nature then this is the place for you. Also, the kids loved the pool and we loved the fact that it was partly shaded and easily seen from many sitting areas. The spend hours in it each day. I would go back to Sueno del Mar in a heartbeat, we have memories we will treasure forever. Thank you to Eduardo, Susanne, Sol, Lily and the rest of the crew.

Beautiful B&B. WONDERFUL staff who gave us tips on the best restaurants, best coffee (truly outstanding and we'd have never stopped at that coffee shop), best Costa Rican souvenirs to take home. Delicious breakfast looking over the beach (people come just for the breakfast). Made special meal accommodations. Honor bar for cold drinks 24-7.

But you might want to know...There is a howler monkey family living in threes. Really cool? Yes. Very loud at 10pm and 5am? Yes. There also is a slightly funny smell right outside the B&B from their droppings. The rooms have their own AC but the windows are screens with shutters so there is always a moist feel in the room. The outdoor shower is a magnet for mosquitoes (and your body is not protected anywhere in the shower!) and a few will end up in your room. There is a HORRIBLE bumpy road-the worst road in the three areas we stayed in CR-to get from the B&B to town. Free wifi outside by the office is nice, but load up on mosquito repellent to be able to sit there for more than a minute or two, which is to be expected in CR.

I would stay there again but it was more "rustic" than I expected.

It been about a month ago now but we still have the best memories of this beautiful place. The B&B was perfect - you can just walk out to the beach and go for strolls - or chose to lie down on one of the sun beds which feel like beds indeed - so comfy! Wildlife all around you - monkeys, iguanas, cute looking squirrels, birds..Rooms are very generous sized and i have to admit i was actually glad there was no TV in there - vacation like that is not about watching TV and it gives you more quality time with each other:). Breakfast is awesome - 3 courses that don't disappoint and just amazing for a vegetarian like myself. staff are very nice and helpful - always full of tips and assistance. We hope to come back one day!
