We stayed here for our last leg of Costa Rica, to wash away the grime of hostels and public transport, and it was perfect.
Great pool, never busy, air conditioning in the rooms, and simple breakfast in the morning. WE also ate at the restaurant one evening, and it was delicious :) I got a seafood risotto that was to die for.
I liked the service! Richard was great and just kinda funny. Ask him about his book exchange, if you get bored.
Tamarindo in general, was my least favorite city we visited. Just too tailored to tourists. The beach was nice though. Our favorite food place was the bbq joint. But be careful, tons of places close on wednesdays!
