Small boutique hotel set in the hills 10 minutes from the centre of Tamarindo. Beautifully designed hotel and rooms. Gorgeous view of the sunset overlooking the sea from the pool area . The service is outstanding - they were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome .

Hotel's Favorite
This place looks like it came from a magazine cover. My wife and I spent 3 nights at this place and the experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff is super friendly, courteous and very helpful. The views are second to none and the property design is impeccable. It is obvious that a lot of planning went into this hotel. The property is located away from civilization down some unpaved roads and that was part of the appeal. It has been a long time that we've woken up to sounds of wild birds instead of traffic. Floor to ceiling windows provided unimpeded views of nearby mountains and ocean, and a morning coffee on the balcony was even better. This is one place I would love to come back to, but next time I would stay longer.

We loved this place. We came at the start of rainy season, which had its own challenges but it didn’t rain much at all. When pulling up to the gate, you need to get out and ring the bell. You can get right back into your car, but it doesn’t say that so we stood out there until the gate opened. And then doing it again at night meant being around all of the beetles that were flying around. The rooms are very clean and there are two pre-filled refillable water bottles in the fridge. Like most places, there’s a Britt coffee machine in the room. As well as tea and many amenities. The breakfast was a nice variety of options and delicious. This is a family (and close friends!) owned business. The swimming pool is tops - watch that 3rd step, it’s a doozie! 😃 We booked three nights and left after one and I am still giving it 5 stars mostly just because it wasn’t for me, doesn’t make it bad. The ocean view rooms (the ocean is pretty far away btw) is up several steep steps. Like A LOT of steps that are jagged and uneven. If you don’t want steps, stay in Jungle View room 5. We found this out when we got there. The other thing is that during rainy season, there are swarms of beetles. Legit swarms. Don’t even think of turning a light on until you’re in your room. And getting there…yeah A LOT of beetles. We left after one night and did not want a refund. It’s a great family and wonderful business and we want them to thrive. Also, the roads there are no better or worse than anywhere in Costa Rica. Rent a 4 wheel drive and you’ll be fine.

Dear Mike, thank you very much for taking your time to write a review. I would like to give my sincerest thank you to you for appreciating the service and facilities we provide. Regarding the beetles, they appear with the first rains and then no more, I am sorry if you feel uncomfortable with them, the nature you know 😅 We hope to have an opportunity to give an even warmer welcome on your next return! Hope to see you soon! Pura Vida!

Absolutely perfect in every way!! This was by far one of our favourite places to stay! Pacific Kalokairi is family run and their pride shines through. We received immediate responses to our questions from the booking process right until after we left. This is a rare trait in the tourist industry. They treat you as family and are extremely helpful in organizing tours, transportation, suggestions, you name it, they can help! The accommodations are immaculate and beautiful while maintaining the Costa Rica ambiance. There is nothing more incredible than waking up to the sound of glorious birds and of course the howler monkeys! Charlie (the family dog) is there to greet you, make you feel at home too! If you are looking for a quiet stay but still convenient to restaurants, beach and the town, this is the one!! Every hotel should take a lesson from these owners. See you next time!

This trip was our first trip to Costa Rica - and we will DEFINITELY be back, and will absolutely stay at Pacific Kalokairi again!!! Not only was the booking, arrival and check-in seamless for this 8 day stay, the owner and employees became our friends. The location was perfect as it was only 5 minutes from downtown Tamarindo. We rented a car, which we would highly recommend as it allows you to adventure and seek out beautiful locations :) Although, if you are not keen on driving, Virginia and the team are happy to coordinate shuttles to and from town for you each day. In regards to the rooms - WOW! It was like staying in a luxurious treehouse that had been brilliantly designed by a talented architect. From the type of coffee provided inside the rooms, to the vaulted roofs, comfortable beds, stunning views and impeccably clean rooms, we were constantly impressed! Each morning we were greeted by Virginia and the staff and we loved spending time with their black labrador as well - 'Charley' :) It truly felt as though we were waking up each morning, talking to friends and staying at a home away from home! Every morning there is an al a carte breakfast for which you choose what to eat/drink from a lengthy menu - and of course this was all included in our stay! When I inquired about having a professional RMT come to the hotel and provide a massage after a long trip to Costa Rica, Virginia was quick to organize this for me. The massage was the following day and may have been one of the best I have ever had - not to mention it was outdoors with the incredible views! We cannot say enough amazing things about this hotel - it was truly a dream trip! We will definitely return and feel blessed to have made some lifelong friends! HUGE thank you to Virginia, Sylvia, the entire team, and of course....Charley ;)

The photos don't do this place justice. The photos made us book but in person its even better! my boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Pacific Kalokairi for a birthday trip. We loved the really kind staff, Virginia, Maria, Silvia and of course Charlie! but the views is what makes this place special. it's tucked away in the mountains a short drive away from the downtown Tamarindo. We did experience some difficulties with getting up the hill but all in all it can happen (good driver and preferably 4X4). I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a calm relaxing place away from the crowds. It really is so peaceful and aesthetically beautiful. (also very romantic) ahaha. I'd stay here again if I am ever back in Costa Rica.

Such a beautiful place! This was the 2nd stop of our trip and it was great! The resort was sitting atop the hill overlooking the ocean and trees. The villas are beautiful!! The service was great, we ordered lunch both days and complimentary breakfast by the pool was an awesome start to the day! We really appreciated the twice a day shuttle to town. Also, Charly made the stay that much better!
