Staying at Villa Imani was more than a pleasure, it was an experience. Having been able to sit down with the owners and their friends was more than a welcoming experience. If you get the opportunity to explore the minds and personalities of these people your time at this hotel will be worth the stay. You could not be more...

It was total coincidence to spend 8 nights there, but it was worth it. Owners, very nice couple with little daughter... IMANI. Coincidence, because my hostel EL MONO LOCO was crap! So very good nice, and peaceful nights. Simple rooms, but with kitchens and all needed stuff. 5 minutes from beach, 8 from tamarindo "city centre" ;-)

This trip was planned very well in advance with the help of the owners considering I wanted to find an oasis of peace just to relax. Who wants to waste away 3 weeks of vacation? Having been in Costa Rica before I thought I knew everything that could be expected. I was however very much surprised about the professional attitude...

First of all, this is not a hotel: this is a brand new huge private house with several rooms for guests. I liked the rooms and especially the pool and the common patio at the villa. The rooms are basic but clean (on one of the days, my room was not cleaned). The private pool is amazing - you can...

This place was my headquarter to run the Tamarindo Beach Marathon and it collaborated with me to have it finished succesfully. Well equipped and comfortable. It's location is very convenient, close to businesses and beach, but still secluded on an dead end street. Nice pool and attention from JF (starting from reservation stage) and staff.

I recently stayed at Villa Imani and it was a wonderful experience to say the least. It is elegant and brand new with luxurious finishes in the room. It was very clean and comfortable. The pool and deck were great. It had everything I needed with Fridge and stove for cooking. It was quiet and felt secluded but everything you...

Couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay. 300 metres from the beach and tucked away from the noise of the main strip. The owners JF and Isabella were the best hosts and helped us with any questions we had on trips and activities. Our room was lovely and spacious with cooking facilities and a large fridge. The pool...

Loved the amazing pool and the loft was very comfortable, all brand new furniture. We would like to suggest to change the bunk bead because the top bed is too close to the bottom bed and you can bump your head if you forget about it. We enjoyed our short first visit and hope for the next one! Veronica, Josh...
