4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Great small hotel only a short walk from center of town. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, this is your place. Nice big rooms, nice pool, friendly and helpful staff. I will be staying here again.

Tamarindo Yam was a great spacious hotel. We had 3 beds, 2 full bathrooms and a full kitchen. The back patio was great to hang wet towels from the beach and wet swimsuits to dry. The full kitchen was great to cook our food from the grocery store or the farmers market. It was very quite for sleeping too. The ocean is only 2 blocks away, the grocery store is only 2 blocks away the main strip is only 3 blocks away. I traveled with my husband, 14 year son and 12 year daughter. The hotel was clean, the staff was very nice and we felt safe walking to and from there at all times. We would recommend Tamarindo Yam anytime. We stayed March 6 - 10th

We felt ourselves lucky to enjoy some peace and quiet at Tamarindo Yam. The staff were very welcoming and the rooms were surprisingly spacious. Importantly we were grateful to be away from the often raucous centre of town. However town, shop to buy food and drink and beach were a few minutes steps away.
It felt safe and we enjoyed the retreat.
Some of the fittings are not of the best quality.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 & 2 were great for one or two people.

This is the first bad review I have ever written. My husband and I landed in tamarindo to celebrate our honey moon. We booked the yam as it was decent location and mid priced. Upon arrival the first room we got had a broken safe and air conditioner leaking liquid down the wall so we were moved.
Our second room was completely infested with bugs. In e kitchen sink coming up the drain and the back of the bathroom toilet. Our blankets had holes in them and the dust on the tv and TV stand was so gross we could write our names in it. We told pictures and a video I will share, once we contacts the manager who spoke wonderful English when we checked he instantly forgot how to speak it, so rude! He made him walk through the room as we pointed out all the things we were I satisfied about,He refused to give us money back for our 4 nights we were there less than an hour. We asked for money for 3 nights and thought hate as more than reasonable. He refused. We spoke to the owner he told us for what we paid what did we expect?! We explained it was unsanitary and he said no one else had. Problem must be our attitude. Want to share my video and pictures I posted them on there facebook page the bugs were crawling everywhere!!! We have stayed in hostels, 40$ rooms and all the way up to 500$ a night rooms such as hotel royal Corin we are very easily to please we just don't want to sleep with bugs! The hotel promised us a microwave and a full size fridge so none of the amenities listed were there BEWARE STAY CLEAR!!!!

Our family very much enjoyed our few nights at the Yam. The staff were friendly, helpful, and the hotel was clean. We appreciated having the kitchen and eating area and the patio off the kitchen. This is a very nice hotel, and a good value for the money.
