My son and I stayed for 6 days at Capitan Suizo while visiting Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The concierge, Jorge, was very helpful in lining up the logistics of our arrival and departure. The bedroom we had was spacious, air conditioned, and the bed was very comfortable. The room was over-looking the beach. You cannot beat the location. It was quiet...
