It is a nice place to stay. But too noisy on Friday night, they have this Lady's night party. Too loud music. Live music and records were played at the same time. They should tell you in advance about this party, not some hours before. Terrible wi-if. You can walk to the pueblito. Ocean view from rooms in second level,... More

This was our 3rd time staying at Vista Villas and as usual it was fantastic!! Friday night is the best party in town and the rest of the time this is a quiet and clean place to stay with a super nice staff and amazing crew at the Crazy Monkey Bar/Restaraunt!!

Rooms are huge, with a separate bathroom. Staff fantastic, friendly and efficient. The owners are brilliant and knowledgeable. The majority of apartment surround the glorious swimming pool. The food is brilliant. There is a local bus service out the front and only 10 minutes to the closest beach, 5 minutes to the nearest town and supermarket. I do strongly suggest... More

Its ok. Allowed me to shower and sleep. Uncomfortable beds. LOUD party in the pool on Friday nights with free really bad drinks. Horrible wi-fi. It is a close walk to the beach and to shopping/restaurant area. Oceanview room not worth it. I can see the ocean during the day, but I'm not at the hotel during the day. Rooms... More

real quick: - rooms and bar do NOT look like the brochure, not as nice and kinda run down. Internet intermitten. You are on the poor end of town but doesn't take long to get to nicer area. Keep expectations at average. Breakfast fair, fruit was great. Beer prices all over town are kinda high, not "local" prices.

We booked this place because it received overall good reviews. We were given an absolutely terrible room (See below). The sheets were dirty, the shower was dirty and we spent the first hour killing flies and mosquitos in our room. We attempted to get an upgraded room which was clean but they said that would cost an extra $80 per... More

We just spent 8 nights at the Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas. It was our first time in Costa Rica. All in all, it was a great experience. I had booked a room with a partial oceanfront view but there must have been some mix-up with the reservation and we ended up in small room with no view for the... More
