The Posada is, as described, a group of small Haciendas designed and built around a pool and restaurant area. The landscaping is immaculate. The rooms are generous, with kitchenettes and sitting areas. It is located in a gated community about 15 minutes from Tamarindo. There is a gorgeous beach facility with a larger infinity pool nearby, a great golf course, and other locations have excellent tennis court and gym facilities. If you plan on going into Tamarindo much, a car is necessary. Amenities within the compound are accessible by a shuttle, but we went by car, so I cannot comment on convenience of shuttle. There is easy access to Avellanas Beach - beautiful and convenient for surfers, and Langosta - more isolated, but pristine. The WiFi service is only good in the restaurant/pool area, but that was where I sat to browse internet anyway, so not really inconvenient. Buffet was the same every day, as mentioned elsewhere, but its a buffet. You can vary your choices. The food was very good. Lovely place. Perfect for families and couples.
