We came to Tamarindo for a three day free diving course and had an amazing stay: our room was sparkling clean, the location is close to everything and Mateo took good care of every request we had. The pool in the common area has just the right size and was well maintained.

Hotel's Favorite
Have stayed in hundreds (too many!) of hotels from at times extensive work travel and I say with great confidence and pleasure, this place is about the most friendly and helpful that I have ever stayed in!! Also great location (very close to the lovely beach & sea), very comfortable rooms, delightful set up around the pool area to enjoy your breakfast or simply relax during the daytime - I really, really enjoyed my stay and 100% recommend this place (solo, couples, family). Well done to the management and all the helpful staff, you do an excellent job.

Don’t let first impressions put you off because this hotel is truly wonderful! On arrival we were offered drinks and an early check in (with an upgrade!) which was a perfect touch after our long shuttle journey. Immediately the wonderful and warm owner from New York gave us a hand drawn map of the town with all the tips we needed from where to eat, where to sit on the beach, events happening whilst we were in town etc. Such a brilliant and personal touch that is needed in ever hotel! The rooms are clean, well decorated and the AC works a charm on the very warm days. The pool is small and shaded but it’s open late and on your door step so perfect after being on the hot beach. Have to call out the absolutely amazing breakfast that had a new special every day - the waiter is so kind and even the kitchen staff are so friendly. Clearly the hotel treat their staff well and they’re all happy to be there! It’s situated very close to everything you want (beach, restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets) however we did sometimes hear the loud music coming from the bars at night - depends where your room is I guess. Would 100% recommend this place and would stay here again!

Arrived at Ten North after a long bus ride from Monteverde so was tired and a little irritable. this place was not my first choice of hotels in Tamarindo, initial hotel was overbooked so accepted Ten North as second choice. Initial impression was not good as the hotel is not in one of the more fashionable areas of Tamarindo; don't let this put you off as the place is a little gem.much to our relief the aircon was efficient-most days it was in the mid30s by 11am. The staff couldn't be more helpful, even the rather fierce Argentine lady turned out to be a secret sweetie! the breakfasts were excellent and the overall ambience of the place was so laid back that within a day both my wife and I were won over by it's charm.the small pool meant that you got to meet and chat with most of the other guests and that turned out to be a bonus. Plenty of good restaurants nearby- the green papaya was very good and not too expensive, the Dragonfly very good also but a little more expensive.In short my wife and I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
