Hotel Arco Iris is about a 10 minute walk from the beach, but it's a walk through town, past the shops, bars etc., and as such is always enjoyable. The hotel itself is absolutely wonderful and the onsite restaurant turns out to be a Tamarindo wide destination for great food. We enjoyed it all so much we stayed 4 days longer than initially planned.

Arco Iris is overall a great property. Top marks for the property, room comfort, ambiance, service, and great staff who are personable and knowledgeable. A five minute walk to the beach and numerous surprisingly good restaurants. Kudos to Richard and his staff!

Hotel Arco Iris was just as wonderful as the reviews said it was. The staff was friendly and helpful. The private bungalows were quiet and comfortable. The food at the restaurant was absolutely delicious. It was perfect for a group of 8 (4 couples) to each have their own space. It was also within comfortable walking distance to Tamarindo's downtown area. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The walls are a little thin. Try to get one of the bungalows that don't share walls.

We stayed here for 3-nights. Last year we stayed at hotel Pasatiempo and felt there is no comparison. We really enjoyed the quiet vibe at hotel Arco Iris and it’s beautiful surroundings. We walked to the Thursday night farmers market in less then 5 minutes and walked to the town and beach in less then 10. We had fun talking with Richard the owner daily. He took care of all our needs and helped us check in early. The dinner we had was one of the best meals of our 10-day trip to vista Rica. The bathroom was modern and beds comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel for its location, rooms, and restaurant!
