“Great stay at Casa Cook!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Stayed June 9-14, 2014, in beachfront cabana. Great location!

Beachfront access to good surfing. Short beach walk to town; lots of great options for eating and shopping in Tamarindo. Casa Cook staff were very hospitable and responsive to our needs and questions about the area. Very quiet and private location and felt very safe staying here and traveling throughout the area.

My wife and I just returned home from our 4th visit at the Casa Cook. Throughout our marriage, we have stayed at many beach vacation spots in the Pacific & the Caribbean but none can match the serenity and beauty of Casa Cook. Coming back is like seeing members of our family again. Ruth Ann, Marie, members of the staff and of course "Buddy" are so accommodating and such a pleasure to be around. Pardon the expression but we simply "chill out" while there. For us, it's a getaway from the real world. Whether we swim in the ocean, read our books, taking walks on the beach up to Tamarindo for eating lunches and visiting old acquaintances again, resting in the beach lounges and looking for Howler monkeys in the trees above, and taking in the most beautiful sunsets, life simply doesn't get any better. To paraphrase what Arnold Schwarzenegger famously said, "We'll Be Back" Pura Vida

Room Tip: To avoid the crowds of Tamarindo, trying booking a week later than Easter and ask for one of the 2 C...

I chose Casa Cook for my pregnant wife and 21 month old son. It was wonderful. The grounds were immaculate kept and the staff was fantastic. If you are looking for a quiet retreat on a beautiful and sandy beach this is it. This is the place if you are trying to get away from emails, cell phones, and the hubbub of modern life.

If you are looking for a quiet place to get away, right on a gorgeous beach, this is the place to go. We stayed in one of the ocean-front cabinas, and it was perfect. Clean, well-equipped and maintained. The owner and staff were very helpful, and looked after our every need.

The location is a short walk down the beach to the center of Tamarindo where you can find dozens of bars, restaurants, surf shops, and retail stores. We had a driver pick us up in San Jose, and another take us to the Liberia airport when we left. The rest of the time we walked everywhere.

What a wonderful location! Right on the beach. The manager and staff were so very helpful and friendly. The beachfront cabana is so perfect. Right on the beach and not in town but close enough to walk. Very secluded feel and not to big to have lots of people in your space. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would love to go back!

This place is a true gem. This was our third stay at Casa Cook and we already booked a 4th. Many are return vacationers like us that know, this is the best you can get! Located on an amazing quiet beach only a few minutes walk to Tamarindo, this spot is unbelievable. The owner, manager, and staff are dedicated to the guests 24 hours a day. The ground are kept immaculate and the pool is refreshing and quiet. Boogie boards and beach towels are provided as needed. I recommend the Cabinas on the beach.

Room Tip: They do not have a restaurant because it is a small resort (4rooms) but there are many great options...

What a find. Almost dont want to tell anyone else! The absolute perfect location. Fabulous staff. Marie was great. Good tips where to shop.
My husband and I and our 14 year old daughter stayed 5 nights and it was so hard to leave. The beach at our doorstep was so quiet and uncrowded. And just a short barefoot walk in the sand we are in the busy little surf village with food and shopping.
Get the bulk of your groceries at the big SuperMercado at the beginning of town. The only one that has a full choice of meat. The nearby groceries are good for when you run out of drink mix!
We will be going back and staying longer.
