“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

My friends and I stayed her for 3 nights on our recent trip to Costa Rica and we would definitely stay here again. The staff was extremely helpful, kind, and polite. They answered any questions we had and if they didn't know the answer right away they would find out and get back to us. The rooms were nice for the price of the hotel. There were ants in the bathroom but it is Costa Rica after all. The rooms were big and everything you would need for your stay was already provided (plates, pots, pans, etc). They had just started serving a free breakfast when we were there. You had a choice between the typical Costa Rican breakfast (rice, beans, tortillas, eggs, fresh fruit) or american (toast,eggs,fruit). Both were good. It was a short walk to the beach and nightlife which was perfect for us.

We have been in Costa Rica for 7 months and have stayed at this hotel 3 times. We found it by accident and continue to come back whenever we visit Tamarindo. For the money it is worth it, especially if you spend most of your day at the beach or on tours. The room is always clean and the pool is well kept. Location is quiet and within walking distance to shops and restraunts.

This place was super clean. Close to the main street, and the pool was great.
Great place for sunsets.

Hotel Flores is a family-managed hotel with "heart and sole". In our stay we got more than we expected : a warm and clean room with a coffeemaker and fridge, nicely furnished, free internet, a wonderful garden with a monkey family on the trees, a swimmingpool as a sportive start in the day, and very nice and client friendly people. This is now our favourite hotel in Tamarindo.Thank you !

We moved to this hotel from the very disappointing Cabinas Marielos. For 35$ (low season), we got a double room with AC, a fridge and hot water. The place is well maintained, has a small pool with a tiny waterfall and is 5 minutes ealking distance to the beach. Great value compared to multiple hotels we've frequented here in CR.

Loved the garden and the pool. We were really suprised when we got there how luxurious it was. There was a coffee maker in the room, and king size bed, cable television, and wifi. The garden was really interesting, we felt surrounded by nature outside of our room with lots of costa rican greenery, and lots of butterflies.

It was a priority for us to be at the beach, the closer to the beach, the better (since we didn't have a car)! Hotel Flores was really close to all the "action," so the sleep was good because it was quiet and peaceful at our end of the block, but we had tons of fun in the day at the beach, and happy hours at the bars. The interior of the spacious room was detailed and thoughtful - with flowers carved into the wood. Really very charming B&B.
