The staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was on the second floor near the beach and there is nothing I can complain about it. With a big balcony, quiet, spacious, clean, comfortable to the point that you don't even want to go to the pool. Everything was working, air conditioner, hot water, coffee maker. This is one of...

We just returned from a one-week stay in Tamarindo. Before booking our hotel, I spent a lot of time considering various alternatives in Tamarindo and also in the Papagayo area. Capitan Suizo exceeded our expectations and turned out to be the perfect place for us. The staff there is exceptional, greeting us (and our children) by name whenever they saw... More

This boutique hotel was gorgeous; the only "jungle" experience that we had. The grounds are meticulous, stunning! The language barrier can be difficult. A good amount of staff speak fluently, but if you need to speak with maintenance or maids, Spanish only. That being said, all of the staff are so friendly! From the front desk and concierge all the... More

Loved the people- all who are at desk. The rooms (some) are closer to the water than one would think is possible, on a well guarded and quiet cut de sac away from all the crowds in town, but not so far one could not easily stroll down the beach or road during the night time. Concierge was amazing. So... More

The Howler monkeys on site were a huge plus. We also loved the easy access to the beach. It was great for our three kids. We felt so comfortable giving the kids some freedom to play while also The staff was laid back and friendly. They are very accommodating. We enjoyed our two-night stay at the start of our trip...

We really enjoyed our 5 nights at Capitan Suizo. It is right on the Tamarindo beach. It has a nice pool and pretty grounds. The restaurant serves a great breakfast, lunch (terrific bacon cheeseburger) and dinner. We had a cabana for the adults and two rooms for the teenagers and young adults (22, 18, 15), and everyone was happy. It's... More

Rooms were wonderful and the grounds were so beautiful and relaxing. Having monkeys on the property was such a great plus in staying here. I loved that they had night time security and gates that closed off the beach area so only people staying at the resort could enter the property. Food, drinks and staff were over the top. Only...

I chose this hotel for our family of 5 with 3 teens ages 15, 16, 19. I'm pretty good by now selecting based on TripAdvisor reviews. I was right again. Tamarindo is a busy surfer town, not our cup of tea. But, my daughter wanted to surf. So, we ended up there for 5 nights. The only hotel set apart... More

The Staff at Hotel Capitan Suizo was friendly, helpful, and tried their best to ensure we enjoyed our stay. They welcomed each us with a free beverage at the bar. Winfred (SP? ) at the front desk allowed us to tour the premises and review the rooms before committing to staying there. Each morning or when they saw us, they... More
