Stayed for 2 nights during the low season, the bungalow was great, clean and super quiet! I loved the pool! Breakfast was very enjoyable and delicious, next to the pool
we loved the quiet .5 minute from main road by walking via a trail, and still amazingly quiet.

My friend and I stayed at Arco Iris for one week to wind down prior to heading back to Australia after 6 weeks in Colombia and Ecuador. Owner Richard is a superb host. He and his staff could not do enough to make our stay both comfortable and homely. Seasons Restaurant has an incredible chef. We ate there twice and couldn’t fault the food. Well done Richard and staff.

This cozy get away is amazing. The owner who stays on property is a humble man willing to show you around and give you the best tips. Only sad part is the restaurant and breakfast. Breakfast is ok and humble but nothing to write about. The restaurant is a sublease so not consistent. But over all the stay is amazing.

Arco Iris is the perfect boutique hotel option in Tamarindo. The grounds are lush, you feel like living in a garden. The place is clean and well kept, the pool is nice, the restaurant serves a decent breakfast and is open for dinner time too. We stayed in the deluxe room which had to queen beds and an upgraded bathroom. Richard, the owner, is a constant presence at the hotel and manages his property very well. Higjly recommended.

When I stayed breakfast was included. They had eggs, toast, cold cereal, fruit, and yogurt. Might have had more I just can't remember what else was offered.
