“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Casa Sueca is what its all about! If you are looking for the modern hotel, this is not it. This is the true Costa Rican feeling!!! the amenities are beautiful and well kept! The pool is great and truly relaxing. While we were there we had rented a car which I truly recommend for all costa rican visitors, however Casa sueca is conveniently located to all! The beach is right across the street and restaurants and shops are down the road.
The room offers, all that one needs... It was clean, nice comfortable bed, TV with cable, Air conditioning and a mini size kitchen with all! I definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the Tamarindo area!

Villa of 3 large bedrooms in the first floor + upstairs bedroom with a huge kitchen and large balcony.
We lived for 5 days in this villa - the room has two double beds (separated with small wall) very comfortable, a nice and very clean linens. There is also a sofa that opens into two. Large and very clean towels, Air-conditioned, fan and small kitchen equipped with microwave, kettle, gas and tools .
there is a patio and a beautiful green garden. It also has a barbecue and a small and very clean pool.

The villa is near Captain Suizo hotel in a small quiet street, within walking distance from the sea..
Ms. Goldy hosted us for dinner Friday and invited us for dinner Saturday. Staff very nice and helpful whenever required.
Highly recommend the place - quiet and yet close to the center and all local restaurants.
you will enjoy the place as we did.
we visited march 11

Room Tip: all rooms are the same - nice and clean.

We had an amazing vacation at Casa Sueca. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and we had a great view of the pool. The owners obviously take care of the place. There is a beautiful calm beach right across the street. We rented a car, so the parking was a big plus. The town is within walking distance or you can get there in less than a minute by car. We took many walks on the beach from Casa Sueca to town, and a few walks to see the sunset at Langosta Beach. I would definitely recommend Casa Sueca to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in Costa Rica with or without kids.

Casa Sueca was a great choice for accomodation in Tamarindo. It's just a 2 minute drive from the center of town and all the restaurants, bars and shops...and the beach. There's also a beach access point directly across the street from Casa Sueca which goes right to the beach of the Hotel Capitan Suizo. So you're right there. The best part about Casa Sueca though was the privacy away from any crowds. You've got your own pool, it's all very pleasantly decorated, there's a grill, sun beds, outdoor shower and a great big green gate that both makes you feel safe (not that there's anything to worry about) and privileged! The owner, Mariano, is super nice and a great emailer for when you're setting up your stay and the on location staff of Noami and I think it was Ramon, were super, super, super nice. We stayed in two of the studios which Mariano made available to us because of our late booking and everything being filled so he graciously accomodated us. The larger studio is on the left next to the driveway, it has 3 separate queen/double beds and a lot of room. The smaller and more quaint studio is on the right on the far side of the house and was really nice for us because we were 2 persons and didn't need all of that extra space. The outdoor/patio furniture was really nice wood, with some cool tables and solid nice chairs to hang out. There are ceiling fans on the outside patio areas as well. I think it was a great value for what you got. I am jealous that I didn't get to stay upstairs in the main house though, looks awesome!!!

Great location. 20 yard walk to the beach from the gates. Hospitality is top notch. Best meal I had in tamarindo was prepared there by the woman running the day to day operations... Not exactly sure what title to give her. The parking also was a super plus. Overall experience was great.

We had high expectations upon checking into Casa Sueca, largely formed by opinions shared here on TA.
When we got there we were greeted by a young hostess who did not have our reservation, asking us if we wanted a room. We had made a reservation including a healthy deposit. The hostess made me log into her computer to prove this, including the deposit amount as she appeared not to believe me.(Gosh thanks for making us feel special and for the great customer service).Once we arrived in our room we were unpleasantly surprised to find no plumbing (no running water, and no toliet functioning). We went down and spoke with the same hostess who informed us that she knew this (may be nice information to share with guests when they check in!) and it would hopefully be up and running the next day. Later the next day water was restored, however there was never a return of hot water-just nice cold water to shower in, shave in, etc. The host staff were pretty much non existent throughout the rest of the week, guests were left to fend for themselves,despite many reminders about the water situation. The upside is that the ocean and pool were much warmer than the shower-so one could improvise!

Overall Tamarindo is beautiful, we will return for sure. There were many highlights including great company (there for wedding) fantastic sunsets, however Casa Sueca was an overall letdown. When we return WE WILL not stay at Sueca-and I strongly urge anyone traveling there to look at several other options in the area, as Sueca doesn't seem interested in customer service, hospitality or guest interaction.

We loved the Casa Sueca! We stayed there in December 2010 for 8 nights.
The gardens and pool area are lovely. We stayed in a Studio Apartment with 1 bed and a futon fold out bed, both were very comfortable and the linens were nice. We had a nice little patio outside our apartment that looked out onto the pool. The whole apartment was spotless and very comfortable. A large TV with cable and lots of English channels in the room. The shower had lots of hot water, although sometimes we got flashes of cold water. We had a couple of problems when we arrived, like the refrigerator wouldn't close, but the manger took care of all of them right away. We used air conditioning at night only, which worked very well. The kitchen was small, but perfect for our needs and was outfitted with everything we needed. Taxis charge $4 to go to town. It is about a 10-15 minute walk along the beach to town. The beach was a 2 minute walk away down a sandy path. Loved having a kitchen in Tamarindo since the prices for restaurants are very expensive compared to other parts of Costa Rica.

We mostly always had access to internet, mostly using neighbors' networks.
