I really enjoyed my time at La Colina. I initially wanted to stay on the beach, so I split my time between La Colina and Witch's Rock Surf Camp. The beautiful views from my balcony at La Colina were breathtaking. It made the few rainy afternoons I spent indoors quite pleasant. The hotel sits above the town of Tamarindo and is less than a 10 minute walk to the beach. La Colina is not a big chain hotel, but it is unique, quiet and the exterior is quite grand. The rooms are basic with kitchen and AC and everything you need. The pool is surrounded by lush greenery and overlooks the ocean. It is owned and managed by a lovely man named Hans who was always happy to see me and fun to chat with coming and going. Hans was extremely responsive and helpful and even upgraded me to the gorgeous penthouse for my last night. If you are looking for a lovely quiet place to spend your evenings this is it.
