Stayed in Sunset one month ago with my wife, and we loved it, if you looking for a quiet , and cozy place this is the place to be,
You can save money buying some grocery in the next door store to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Beach is 2 min walk , at night theres no noise so you can sleep peacefully
Recommend for couples

Great place to stay. Federico treats you like family and the location is great. Excellent place to stay for a surf trip as you're close to Playa Negra, Playa Grande, Avellanas (sp?) etc.

Internet was very reliable which was nice since I had to do some work while down there. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: I like the one in front of the pool on the ground floor

Fell down them one night. the deck is falling apart along with everything else. smells bad and mold in room. when it rains all the water comes in. tons of other options around than this place. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Sunset Inn is a peaceful and small resort. It has spacious, clean rooms equipped with wifi, and there is a pool for everyone to enjoy. It is also just a short walk to a nearby grocery store and the beach. The staff is warm and cares deeply about the satisfaction and pleasantness of the experience for everyone who visits the Sunset Inn. I would come back and stay here in a heartbeat!

Just enjoyed Christmas week 2010 at Playa Langosta, Tamarindo, and staying at Sunset Inn. Federico runs a uniquely special almost self-run 'Hotel' at Sunset Inn - I say 'Hotel' because, really it is a small building of individual apartments, all looking out over the pool, and just steps from the beach, it runs itself so smoothly and feels like a Hotel while you are there. Rooms are cleaned and beds made daily - the sweet woman who takes care of the Inn (sorry, i forgot her name) has to contend with families, and individuals who are on vacation and at the beach and in the pool - so it must be a mammoth task, but each day she cheerfully took care of our two-bedroom apartment and left it neatly, with clean towels and sheets.
This is a simple, yet tasteful spot, and the 'vibe' between guests was friendly and warm on all levels. There is a covered patio with a charcoal grill - various guests used it without issues, and we cooked the fresh red snapper we had purchased at Pedro's fish shack in Tamarindo - it was delicious! Kitchen utensils and plates etc could use an update - don't plan on setting the table for a party of six ... But for beach life, country-style - it was fine.
I am a bit of a surf dog, and this was a family surf and relaxation trip with two 17-yr-old boys. Sunset Inn is not an 'upscale' place if you are looking for 'spa' treatment, etc. It is a perfect mid-scale place to stay if you are looking for a secure quiet spot, (single point of access thru the locked front gate) with good wi-fi, working a/c, pool, and where you don't have to hear or put up with tourist traffic and dust as in Tamarindo town, yet you can walk to the beach any time of day or night .... then THIS is the place for you.
The name Sunset Inn is appropriate, as you will be only 200 yards down the road, sitting on the sand, watching the sun set into the western Pacific.
Federico is an exceptionally responsive and straight-up kind of guy, who was a joy to deal with and who was very resourceful on our behalf. He is frequently on-site, but does not live at the Inn, making it a truly self-run operation. Thanks Federico.

The room descriptions are a lie! Only 2 out of the 6 units are as described! Our room smelled of humidity and mold, had a non-working shower head, and did NOT have a kitchen. I was completely disappointed! The whole place needs some serious TLC!

My name is Daryn, my friends and I have stayed at Sunset Inn a few times. Federico and his staff are very hospitable and welcoming. They took care of your every need. We stayed there because of the close proximity to the Langosta river mouth. Its a beautiful beach with the most amazing sunsets and good waves for surfing. If you are planning a trip to Costa Rica I highly recommend Sunset Inn for your accomodations! Great Rates! Great Location! Great Rooms! PURA VIDA!
