Very helpful and friendly staff. Lovely pool and lots of wildlife. Monkeys around the pool in the trees everyday. Very happy with our stay here. Just far enough away from the main strip but close enough to walk there easily. We stayed here twice during our trip as we knew what to expect, quiet and quaint, very good value for... More

Just perfect for what I wanted..I saw a couple of bad reviews but I can't understand why. Clean, quiet,and the staff was just to helpful. Bottom you get a lot bang for you buck. If you are traveling as we were with 5 kids this is the place in Tamarindo.

My partner and myself took a 3 week trip to travel around Costa Rica independently with a 4x4. We spent our first 2 weeks travelling down the Pacific coast of Guanacaste and Nicoya and booked a number of apartments to stay in while travelling. On first arrival at Hotel Nahua it was an easy quick check in with no problems... More

Stayed 3 nights in low season, great value in tamarindo. Very clean, decent hot showers, cute little pool, and front desk staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. The cafe next door offers amazing coffee and fresh food. Short walk to such a wonderful beach. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a safe comfortable clean mid range hotel.

Hotel Nahua is located in the center of Tamarindo beach surrounded by awesome restaurants and bars. It is a very short walk to the beautiful Tamarindo beach. The rooms are newly renovated, modern looking, very clean and have very good air conditioning and a refrigerator. The showers always have hot water and water flow is strong. Gabriela, the owner is...

Very nice hotel near the beach. Quiet and a nice green environment. Great swimmingpool with a daily visit of a leguan! Friendly staf and very good breakfast. We don 't understand the negative comments... Everything was great here. Ask for the newer rooms near the pool, not much pricier and really nice and spacious with good working A/C.

I was bumped from my other hotel,my fault for not reserving ahead. A busy weekend in a tourist town...I was lucky to find this tranquil beautiful property. YES! It is... More

I would highly recommend this property for someone on a budget. It was was clean and convenient. The beach was an easy 5 minute walk and the main street with most of the restaurants was close, as well. The pool and grounds were attractive, complete with quite a few howler monkeys. Best of all is your hostess, Gabriela. She is... More

I love this little resort! Clean, welcoming, safe and a great place to hang out. Gabriella, the owner, and her staff treated me like family. Loved the wildlife all around and they welcomed my dog here! The room I had was modern and sparse. Great a/c and a comfortable bed, plus a small refrigerator. You can't get internet in the... More
