I just left Tamarindo yesterday and am already missing The Crazy Monkey. The staff here was very welcoming. Good conversation and drinks. Thank you Jamie and Sharom for making my stay so wonderful. Whether it was breakfast or a night cap you were always there with a smile on your face.

Beautiful view of the sunset, pool is awesome and had a hidden bonus of the swim up bar too. Here with family, including my toddler and everyone enjoyed the food and drinks. Almost the same price you would pay in the states but service was pretty good. Savanah I believe is the one we saw most in the morning and... More

Went on a Friday, went to pay for drinks, bartender says...you don't pay til bottles on these shelves(3) are empty! Huh? Okay so the rest of the night was unforgettable. Music was good also! One side is Spanish wth a band and other side English wth DJ. What a great spot. Cover charge is Like $5.00

My husband and I don't go to clubs often, since we're on out early 40's. We were looking for a place to party on our last night in Costa Rica. We heard the music from a couple blocks away, and decided to check it out. I'm do glad we did, we had a great time. There were two areas, one... More

Everyone kept talking about this party, so we decided we needed to check it out. We were told we would get drink tickets if we answered a few questions, so we agreed. We arrived around 9pm and didn't have to wait in line. There are two bars and it was already pretty crowded. Our friends grabbed some beers and the... More

We travel to Tamarindo often... A very nice place to stay on quick visits and the Thursday Night party here (Salsa Night) is the biggest party of the week in Tamarindo. People come from all around come to party, salsa band and a DJ. Great pool bear and wonderful foo too!

This bar was great to visit for it had a clean pool to cool off in the afternoon. The food was good. A friendly place to meet others. Price for food was good. Bottled Beers are expensive in CR. Pic from the pool.
