Is El Tamarindo closed. If so What happened?
They are renovating.
Any idea for how long? I can't reach anyone through their telephones and email and I wonder if they're actually...closed due to the economy?
I doubt that they are closed for good but this is the off season. I can't say for sure because I have moved away from the area but I know that they were closed for renovation.
The owner is going bankrupt. He used to own the Yellowstone Club in Montana. He only owns the hotel of about 40 acres , the rest of the 2000 acres are owned by Roberto Hernandez ,the billionaire former owner of Banco de Mexico that he sold to Citi Bank pre 2008. He sold the Hotel for $40 million and will now buy it back for probably $10 million. All should be good by Nov, I hope so because I want to lounge by my normal Villa by Christmas!
Does anyone have any updates at this point in time? We have some vouchers to use and are starting to get worried. thanks from CO.
I asked a friend from down there to check with Alex the manager of Tamarindo back in July when this question first came up.
She hasn't heard back from him... Alex worked at the hotel when Senior Hernández owned it too but I've no idea if he is still there or what changes have been made in that respect. Or for that matter if they suffered any damage when Jova roared through last month. I'll ask Linda to check again. If they are opening for the season it will probably be pretty soon.
Wonder what will happen with the cluster of cement cliff hanging houses that were built during the Yellowstone Club days. They would have incredible views if one could get used to overhanging the ocean that way.
Thanks Nan for trying - if you hear from your friend Linda that would be great. Thanks again!
I just now heard back from my friend Linda who investigated what is happening at Tamarindo. She says, "The Tamarindo hotel is closed and there is no date for its opening. Hope that helps!"
So, I guess it is still wait and see.
The property is beautiful. I hope it is developed. Thanks for checking Nan.
Any news on whether the hotel/golf course will be re-opening? Let me know....its a wonderful place!
