I had to cancel my reservation for December due to Covid travel restrictions. I'm trying to contact the property and no one answers the local phone or will return the multiple messages and emails that I sent.

This place is the ultimate getaway for a couple or a family. You have your own bungalow and also are within a few steps to their pool and access to the beach! Ilse and Pía were amazing hostesses, they communicate with you before you even get there to make sure you have a pleasant visit. They make you feel as part of the family and take good care of you. I would definitely recommend this place! Their beach bar is the best amongst all the ones along the beach and it’s just a few steps fro your bungalow. Can’t say enough about the staff there. They were all awesome!!!!

The lack of ethics, humanity and of willing to help from this hotel really disappointed us. After a long journey we arrived at this hotel with the only wish to relax and get some rest. The gave us a room(they said the only room left) that was right on the street and the noise was too much to sleep. We specifically asked for a quiet room in pur reservation made weeks in advance. They refused to change the room or find another solution and told us if we don’t like it to leave. They said they will put the room back on the market and if it sells then we can get our money back. But they never did that and still charged us the full amount even if we stayed there less than an hour and then went and slept in another hotel. We had the good intention to just get some sleep at Ocho but it was just impossible with the heavy noise from the street(big construction cars passing every few minutes and horns). Writing this as we want others to know about the service quality of this place.

Ocho Artisan Bungalows is such a special place to stay. I am so happy we chose it. The grounds are magnificent, so lush and vibrant - both the foliage and the decor touches such as Buddhas, Hamsa hands etc. Our bungalow was enormous and the king bed so comfortable, the best sleep we had in Costa Rica. Nice size kitchen and bathroom as well. Breakfast was in the beach restaurant and made to order from the menu, everything was absolutely delicious. Very relaxing way to start the day. Location is on the south end of Tamarindo Beach and perfectly situated next to several fantastic restaurants. The fire dancers also practice right outside the resort which was really cool to watch at sunset. The only interesting discovery was that there two crocodiles who live in the mangroves between the resort and the beach but they don’t seem to bother anyone and were fun to watch (though my friend slightly disagreed lol). All in all I consider this the absolute best place to stay in Tamarindo beach!

We travelled to costa Rica as two families with 4 kids under the age of 9 and stayed at ocho and it is truly a hidden gem. My husband and I have travelled quite a bit and always try and find authentic places to stay that allow you to feel the country you are in and Ocho definitely succeeded in that( if you like that all inclusive concrete feel of a hotel then this place is not for you) . Between the howler monkeys, iguanas, croc and of course the beautiful beach right there on your doorstep it was a magical experience for not only the kids but for the parents as well. The design and setting make you feel instantly relaxed surrounded by the beautiful nature of costa rica. We stayed in the three bed right on the beach and it was truly our home away from home...absolutely spectacular!!! Now on to a huge part of our experience...the wonderful staff. Everyone from Ilse and Pia to restaurant staff and maintenance, they all greated you with a smile everyday. This place is small so you get to know everyone and they are ALL willing to help with whatever you need, they really want to make your trip special.Ilse booked us a private sailing trip and surf lessions and I would 100% recommend that to everyone staying here...they were both highlights of our trip. I write this review as I'm sitting infront of my bungalow looking down at the beach on our last day. It's sad to leave this beautiful place and we hope to return one day. Stay true to who you are Ocho...you are a special place!!!
