Wow! What a fantastic home base for our honeymoon! It was gorgeous, the room were clean, cool, and spacious, and the staff was amazing! Only a 10-15 minute walk to the town, peaceful and serene! Love!

We were there during july 4th week and everything was amazing. We stayed for 7 days at this location. The property is beautifull and the people are very nice. The food is probably some of the best seafood we have ever eaten. The free breakfast buffet was very good. Plenty of food to choose from, just watch out for the birds when you getting up to get a drink, they will take your food.

The property is located near the end of the beach so there aren't a lot of people on it, which was a good plus for us. There is a supermarket about a 15 minute walk towards town, and the rest of the shopping is about another 5 minutes away from there.

jojo the monkey is probably one of the more memorable things from the trip. We would go every morning to the common area near the help desk to play with him. He is not shy, so watch out for your stuff, or it may be gone. In my case he took the #1 key from my laptop. But for only $10(replacement key) I will have the memory from that hilarious moment for the rest of my life.

The property was very nice. The rooms didn't have AC, but the ocean breezes and ceiling fans were perfect. The restaraunt was probably the best food we had all week in Tamarindo. The staff were so friendly and nice. Rosa was helpful at getting us everything we needed and George (and Ingrid) were kind enough to take us to the "Farm" where we were able to play with the monkeys and racoons. It was amazing!

Room Tip: get a second floor room, they have nice balcony's that include gas lamps for ambience. Also up t...

Wonderful staff, beautiful place to stay. Beach was amazing and the grounds, landscaping were amazing. Love the animals! The food was very good (very fresh) and offered lots of options. The drinks tasted great. Very romantic place. Well managed.

We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica and we're already planning our return. We will definitely be staying at Hotel Capitan Suizo again. The hotel is located directly on a beautiful each, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the room is exceptionally clean. The complimentary breakfast had everything we expected. We didn't get time to experience the spa or much of the restaurant (besides for breakfast and poolside drinks) but we heard great reviews. It's also in walking distance to the town of Tamarindo. There is absolutely nothing to complain about when it comes to this hotel!!

We loved staying at Capitan Suizo. We had a ground floor room with A/C and a patio. The grounds are beautifully landscaped complete with monkeys, birds and lizards. I loved the visiting mapache (raccoons) in the evening who come to eat and the baby porcupine who also comes to eat in the evening. I got to feed papaya to the baby porcupine! There are also several resident cats and some visiting dogs.
The pool was awesome and literally steps from the beach. It was so amazing having breakfast so close to the beach. You can also eat at the tables on the beach. Food at the hotel was good as well. Loved the bar and the drinks and the hotel staff.
Tamarindo itself is a fun town with many choices for restaurants and shopping.
I would not hesitate to recommend Capitan Suizo or return for another stay. Truly relaxing and beautiful.
