We just spent a week at this hotel staying in a villa. It was not what we were expecting. Out plumbing was atrocious. Our shower had no water pressure, both toilets leaked and the sink was slow to drain leaving an awful smell in the villa. When we asked the front desk to fix it, they opened the bathroom window.
The daily cleaning was bizarre. They rarely took out the trash. When they made the beds, they sort of threw the thin comforter on the bed and placed a few pillows on it. There was nothing in the room to let you clean your own dishes and they would only rinse them. Everything tasted like whatever we had the day before. They wouldn't even change the toilet paper rolls. Very strange for such a 'nice' hotel.
The breakfast was okay. They had a buffet, but most of the wait staff stayed in the kitchen while the wild birds ate whatever they wanted from the buffet. The birds would stand on the fruit and pick through pieces. Made me so sick to watch.
This hotel is not on the beach. You can walk down a trail to get to the beach, but it is not a useable beach. We were traveling with kids and they couldn't get into the water since it was so rocky and the waves were rough over the rocks. When we went into town there were lots of nice looking hotels right on useable beaches. I would stay at one of those if you are looking for a nice place to stay in Tamarindo.
