I am here in Tamarindo with a filming crew from Hong Kong we got to the hotel and there was a party going on until 3am. The receptionist said someone should have told us which did not happen. The stairs and getting to the rooms is terrible, if you have a lot of luggage this is not your place. After...

We got a block of rooms in the newer part and couldn't be more thrilled. They were spacious and offered a front row seat to waves all day and sunsets each night. The staff was helpful and took great care of us. I will be returning soon!

The hotel is located right across Tamarindo beach. So many restaurants are within walking distance. A super market and a pharmacy is close by. The staff is awesome. Maricruz at the front desk was really helpful in finding good places to eat and a tour to Nicaragua. She loves to help. Monkey Bar is an awesome place to hang out.

I booked this hotel based on availability with the dates we had. It was hard to find a room in the area. The pictures posted looked good. However the room we received was not like any of the ones online. I have to say a new manager is just taking over so I have hopes that it will defiantly improve....

We were only there for one night, but it was a lively, fun place to stay. We stayed in the newer 400 number rooms, and they had great ocean views, and a great balcony. The pool area was a lot of fun, however when the folks from the local Hostels show up in the afternoon, the pool becomes really crowded.

The pool chairs were mostly broken. My room didn't get cleaned everyday. The wifi is terrible. I expected a lot more from a best western. The breakfast was awful, very little selection. Got woken up by blasting music from the bar at 7am

I stayed here because it was my boyfriends birthday and we wanted a getaway for the both of us. This hotel is 5 mins away from the heart of Tamarindo. The staff was so helpful, and kind. If I had to do it all over again I would choose this hotel. Maricruz was super helpful by helping set up my...

We arrived at this hotel on a Thursday. The buildings are outdated and a strange setup (multiple levels in our room). We had booked two rooms, one room had a full sized bed and the other had two twins. There was only one A/C and it was in the room with the full sized bed. The two rooms were connected...

The front desk is a small shack right at the entrance to the property. It looks more like a small guard house, which I imagine it doubles for at night. Check-in was seamless. We drove up to the parking area. There is not enough parking to accommodate all the rooms, so once we found a place it was a few...
