“Wonderful stay but beware!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2006

5 of us girls stayed here for a week and loved it. The place was beautiful, the rooms were huge and very clean. We stayed in the unit with the hotub which was excellent. The monkeys outside were very loud as was the construction, but we still enjoyed it. We also enjoyed Jorge's services - he was an invaluable concierge. The beach was beautiful and just across the street.

It was kind of scary at night because they turn just about all the lights off after 8pm, so bring a flashlight if you choose to walk (and it just didn't make sense to pile 5 girls in a cab to go a few feet up a hill).

HOWEVER, please beware. While one of my friends was showering a piece broke off in her hand. They made us pay for it, even though it was normal wear and tear. That is when we learned that if ANYTHING in the condo breaks, you are responsible. Even if the TV or the AC decide to go out for whatever reason, you will have to pay for it. Personally we thought that was a huge risk to take; therefore, despite the wonderful time we had, we probably won't go back. Fortunately we found out about all this as we were leaving so it did not affect our stay, but it did leave a very bad taste in our mouths. Bottom line - stay at your own risk!

We stayed at the Horizon Villas Tamarindo, also called El Diria Condominiums. We had a great experience. Jorge was our contact, and he booked us great excursions and answered all of our questions. The condos were wonderful, the patios and the afternoon visitors (monkeys and iguanas) were so cool. Our kids loved it. I would recommend these condos to a family or large group. The pool with swim up bar was also a highlight of the trip.
