We stayed for a week. Absolutely loved it. The gardens are impeccable and the monkeys alone are worth the stay. Not to mention the view is fantastic with a large beach. We loved the pool and and the staff. Food was great and so was the bar. Nice to come back to every night after trekking the forest and volcanos.... More

The Capitan Suizo is a magical place. This is my twelfth year traveling to the Capitan Suizo in Tamarindo. That alone tells you what a special hotel this is. It is not the only place I travel, but I am sure to visit once or twice a year, and honestly, this hotel matches up with any Four Seasons, St. Regis,... More

Spent a week here after travelling around Costa Rica and this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Set at the quiet end of Tamarindo and right on a wonderfully clean beach. You can chill out by the beach or around the cooler swimming pool. Sunbeds are easily available as are drinks/meals at the adjacent bar. Lovely breakfast each... More

We chose this hotel because we wanted to take a kid free trip that had a peaceful environment but also offered activities. We were so excited when we arrived. This place is amazing! It's spread out and surrounded by beautiful gardens and vegetation. We saw a small monkey up in one of the trees as we were checking in. The... More

What a pleasant surprise . The staff on arrival where very welcoming and friendly. We arrived early and they said our room wasn't ready but offered us complimentary drinks. Lovely touch. My fajita lunch was unusual not sure about mustard and ketchup on my Fajitas. The service was friendly and quick. After lunch we where shown to our room. What... More

Words cannot describe how happy we were with our recent stay. The rooms are great, the grounds are beautiful, the pool was fantastic, the staff was wonderful and the wildlife was amazing. This hotel is in the perfect location at the end of the beach so it's not crowded at all! Each day we took a 10 minute walk on... More

Our most expensive stay in Costa Rica and the standard was not very high. The first evening in the restaurant I got chicken in the vegan dish I ordered and the waiter ate the piece I had in my mouth to see if it really wasn't vegetables (at our table). They said they would compensate us but didn't. The room... More

We chose Capitan Suizo because we were told it’s off the beaten path. I had heard that Tamarindo is a mini Tijuana, and the thought of staying in the middle of that did not appeal to me. Having said that, we wanted to be somewhat close to amenities. Capitan Suizo is at the southern most tip of Playa Tamarindo and... More
