We really enjoyed our stay at the Arco Iris. We were looking for a change of pace from the big all inclusive that we usually do, as we wanted a bit more adventure on this trip. We were glad we didn't do an all inclusive, as there are tons of restaurants to choose from in Tamarindo. We stayed with our 2 children, 10&14, and found the accommodations to be perfect. The rooms were simple, but very clean, and the bathroom was nice. Water pressure was not really strong, but was fine, and I believe this is a common problem for this area of Costa Rica. Richard, the owner, was generally available for conversation or questions, and he and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was nice to not have to worry about breakfast, although the breakfast was basic, it was good. I would recommend a different type of loaf or muffins daily, just for some variety. We frequently had monkeys in the trees outside our room, which was very cool to see. Our best meal of the week was at the hotel. The main eating area turns into Seasons restaurant in the evening, and it was fantastic! We saved it for the last night, but wished we had eaten there again. The walk to the beach and main strip was about 10 min, and we didnt mind it at all. I think it would be noisy to stay any closer, as the nightlife picks up. Overall, a great stay! Would definitely stay here again!
