This is the second year in a row we have brought our international Yoga Retreat to Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. We found the property and it's staff to be a perfect fit for us. The rooms are modern and clean, and the hotel has a very relaxing atmosphere, perfect for a yoga getaway. Planning and communication was prompt and seamless and we were truly impressed with the care and attention received by ourselves and our group made up of 22 yogis and some companions. We rented the entire property which meant we were able to customize our stay to fit around our scheduled morning and afternoon yoga practices and adapt breakfast times around our group’s needs. The upper level breezy terraza is a perfect spot with ample space for yoga and views of the lush tropical surroundings and the pool. The space is equipped with an audio system so we merely had to connect our phones. They also provided the yoga mats. The palm fronds and bamboo details make a great backdrop for photographs too! After our daily morning practice, we enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast up on the terraza (which included fresh fruit, cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, banana bread, cinnamon bread, freshly cooked eggs, rice and beans and plantains). The group could then enjoy the facilities for the rest of the day, lounge by the pool or head to the nearby beach, just a 7 minute walk away. They also provided a massage table (as we had our own masseuse in the group), but can just as easily arrange a therapist to come to the property on request. They took charge of travel arrangements for our group, who were all flying in from various airports at different times, making sure that airport transfers were well coordinated, comfortable and reasonably priced. On offer at the hotel, were group activities such as a Sunset Catamaran trip or an All Day Volcano Adventure trip to a nearby location, arranged by the hotel with reliable and licensed vendors chosen with care for their impeccable record for great customer service and safety. Theses options were presented to our group during the planning stages of our trip, before our arrival so that we were able to arrange them in advance and save valuable vacation time while we were on the property! The owners and staff, being long term residents of the town, are a great source of local knowledge to make each stay special. They are truly vested in making sure you have a great time! Tamarindo is a quaint little town with much to offer and the hotel is located within walking distance of both the beach as well as popular restaurants and cafes. This gives you the opportunity to include partners or travel companions who may not be involved in your particular activity, such a s yoga, in our case, as they are free to safely explore the town and beach on their own or arrange any of the fun activities on offer in the town, like surfing, scuba diving, paddle boards, hiking etc, which are within the expert abilities of the hotel concierge service included in your stay. The property includes three, senior, well behaved rescue dogs who have the run of the place but are not, in any way, bothersome. It was nice for those of us missing pets at home, to be able to interact with them. The owners contribute regularly to local animal rescue efforts and even have a dedicated drinks fridge with profits donated to the cause. As an organizer of yoga retreats, they made everything so simple and smooth for us from beginning to end, all information was clear and concise, they were able to adapt to our needs and make it the perfect to stay! We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are considering bringing your group to Costa Rica as Tamarindo is an amazing destination and you will be well taken care of at Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed here for about a week at the beginning of January. It was our first time in Costa Rica and we wanted to make sure to be walking distance to all the night life & restos in Tamarindo. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! It was perfect in every way - the room was spacious & clean, the breakfast was delicious, and the hotel grounds were immaculately well kept and lush. We really felt like we were in a sanctuary. The location was perfect, we were within quick walking distance of all the good restos and shops, but once we got back to the hotel, we felt like we were secluded. The hotel owners & hosts were amazingly helpful and so sweet. Don’t even think twice about booking this place, if you’re going to Tamarindo you must stay here!! Oh and the best part is listening to the birds as you eat your delicious breakfast in the morning!

We stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The area with the pool was so relaxing. Great breakfast and quiet atmosphere! The hotel is also very environmentally friendly. They provide reusable water bottles for you to use on your trip, and other amenities. One area where this hotel was really exemplary was the staff. They helped up make bookings for activities with reputable tour guides and we enjoyed every activity so much. The ease of it all couldn't be beat. One standout activity was a mass beach landing of sea turtles, which was the highlight of our trip. I was worried about using with a company who would disturb the turtles during their egg laying, but this company took every precaution and followed all conservation rules. We were so glad we asked for help booking, they knew exactly who to use. I really can't say enough good things about this hotel and the staff!

WE LOVED OUR STAY!! We recently came back from our trip to Costa Rica February 25- March 4th 2020. Big thank you to MARIE for her outstanding customer service, friendly smile and making sure we were always well taken care of! She definitely goes above and beyond for every single guest. In fact every single employee who works here is extremely friendly and professional. Our room was spacious and modern and had this calm, Zen aura about it all. The whole property has this Zen feel to it. No feeling of stress while you are on this property. The pool is great and a lot of comfy lounges and poufs to laze around! Breakfast in the morning was excellent! A variety of fresh fruit, pastries, buffet style, etc. Also you can get your eggs made to order. Another bonus is that the property is very eco-friendly :) We rented a car but you can easily walk to the beach or explore the town to find places to eat, drink, dance and of course watch the gorgeous sunset!! There are no bad choices in Tamarindo! Once the world is normal again I would highly recommend staying here!!! PURA VIDA! Ron and Jacquie xoxo

Our adult kids and their spouses asked me to write a review because they are not on Trip Advisor. They arrived late on the evening of March 3rd and had booked 3 rooms. Everything was over the top superb! The check in, the location, their accommodations, breakfast, ambiance, and very helpful staff exceeded their expectations. Thank you for providing them with a safe place to get a good nights rest. We will all recommend your Boutique Hotel to others.
