Rooms were excellent. It was very quiet and just far enough away from Tamarindo that we could not hear the town noise. Just a few steps from the beach. Staff was very accommodating. I would recommend staying here again if I was headed to Tamarindo.

We stayed here last week as the last part of our trip in Costa Rica. We came from La Fortuna which was incredible and were spoiled at the Nayara for 4 blissful days. As soon as we arrived at Capitan, we didn't find the staff very welcoming or even that interested that we were there. We had paid to upgrade... More

Lush, tropical setting with stylish, handcrafted woodwork in perfect location on the beach. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean. The pool is lovely and this section of the beach feels private and exclusive. Pool table, ping pong ball table, and surfboards are available.

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 10 years. We love this property, it is very lush, environmental friendly, quite, rooms are what I call "simple elegance," great pool, bar, restaurant, and beach. If you are having multiple days, please have at least have one dinner at the restaurant. Very relaxing setting, good place to soak... More

The hotel is alright but they charge as a 5 star hotel but it isn't. The rooms look old and need maintenance. The beach is fine but need a little workout, the pool is not that good. Overall the hotel needs a remake the only good is the gardens and that you are surrounded by nature. On the other hand... More

we have been there several times over many years and Capitan Suizo still sets the standard for other hotels in Tamarindo to measure up against. It is nestled within the local vegation while sitting on the beach without disturbing the beachfront nature. It has a decent restaurant though that could need more sophistication. But you willl not be disappointed eating... More

Everything about this place was amazing! We stayed in the most basic room - and it was incredible. Set on a beautiful stretch of beach, this was our favorite stop in CR for our honeymoon. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly.

We stayed in one of the bungalows and it was amazing. The hotel is surrounded with beautiful local plants and trees. The beds and linens were 5 star and each morning we awoke to the sounds of the jungle. Early one morning about 5a.m. we heard the howler monkeys calling to each other. The hotel is on the beach and... More
