Started with Davit bringing my things to my beautiful room. Great view, clean and comfortable. Because of going during Covid it could have been a terrible trip but the hospitality from everyone was perfect. Met Charlie the bartender the first day and had more than a few drinks with him. Mornings started with Alicia and her partner serving a nice breakfast. Then a few more cups of coffee on the ocean deck. Pool and beach were picture perfect. Can't wait to return when they can be fully open.

Tamarindo Diria is beautifully decorated with a very bright entrance. Lobby is spacious and walks right out to the 2 oceanview pools. The grounds are nicely manicured and offer direct beach access. There is a beachfront restaurant on the grounds along with a few more along Central Ave. out front. We had the double queen oceanview room on the second floor. The room was spacious and didn't feel cramped. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom/ shower area were quite large. The breakfast was very good and so was the service. They do offer excursions, which seemed fairly priced but we did not get the chance due to heavy rain during our stay. Tamarindo Diria is a beautiful 4 star beach resort, which almost resembles a mega resort with a smaller feel.

We stayed in the section of the property that was across the street from the beach. This was not a problem for us. The hotel had a person to stop traffic every time we went to the beach. The property is beautiful and it is a great location. The room was great.

We were very disappointed in our stay. The grounds and setting are beautiful and the location is perfect. We just found the service lacking and the food below average. It wasn’t horrible but i was expecting a more upscale experience and this definitely was not. If your from the US the best I can compare it to is to say this is more of a middle of the road Holiday in and no where near a Four Seasons. The rooms are TINY and has much more of a motel than a hotel feel.

As the corona virus is about to decimate the Costa Rican tourist industry, this property chooses to treat its guests like garbage. The property is at best at 50% capacity as is most of Tamarindo at this point. So let me share my sad little tale. As a paying guest, I invited some friends who are also staying in Tamarindo over for drinks and lunch at the property. In summary, my guests were rudely treated by the management and the security guards because they were not staying at the property and were aggressively asked to leave. My group would have spent hundreds of dollars on drinks and food over the course of the day, but we were forced to leave the property to spend our money at another resort. When management was confronted, they simply replied, “These are the rules.” I have stayed at luxury properties around the world, and NEVER have I seen or had guests treated in such a horrific manner. I then proceeded to inform the manager that in about two weeks when there is not a single guest or tourist at their property due to the fact that the country is on lockdown from all foreign visitors, they will most sorely regret turning away my group. In addition, my group will spend our money elsewhere throughout the remainder of our holiday, as we refuse to spend any more money than necessary at this sad little property. Finally, I will make it a point to share my experience with all who will listen as to the shabby way in which the Diria treats its guests. I have many friends back in NYC that travel frequently to Costa Rica. I will be sure to let all of them know to avoid this hotel at all costs. YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WARNED!!!!!

First of all, under none circumstance we treat our guests like garbage. Your review does not reflect the true level of service we so much pride to offer to each and every of our guests. Our staff never asked your guests to leave in a aggresively way and instead, our Guest Service reprensentive was very kind to offer you the option to purchase a day pass for your friends for only $40 per person (your guests were allowed to use the $40 as a credit for food and drinks). For someone stating that you were going to spend hundreds of dollars on drinks and food, we were surprised that you were complaining about paying $40 per person. In this time of the COVID-19 we have supported our guests in every possible way, therefore it is regretful that you write such negative and false statements.
