“PERFECT vacation!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2011

My husband and I spent four night at the Breeze and loved it. We have done a good bit of traveling and all were very impressed with the accommadations and area. It is an easy walk to the beach and tons of great local restaurants. It really could not be in a better spot. Quiet but near everything you need. Also Rhonda and Jean Marc are so incredibly helpful and will get you anything you need. We all agreed that this is one place we want to visit again!!

The Breeze was wonderful, the people running it are amazing and every need was taken care of. The pool is great. The barbeque area is a bonus for sure. Very centrally located and the owners couldn't have been more informative. I would and will go back in the future. Thanks so much

Tamarindo's hot and sunny climate - with an expansive (and uncrowded) beach for walking, surfing, watching the sunset, perhaps even fishing with the locals - allows active tourists to slow down. The Breeze accommodates this leisurely lifestyle perfectly with comfortable villas; a cool cascading pool (which is shown on the website); very close proximity to the beach and restaurants; and towering trees and lush vegetation that provides temporary homes for birds and monkeys passing overhead. The Breeze's 5 villas, enclosed within a secure gate, are relatively new and immaculate. They each include air conditioning as well fans/screened doors, well equipped kitchens (with toaster ovens rather than full ovens), dining areas, one or two bedrooms, cable TVs and wireless internet. The attentive staff will even take care of laundry for a minimal fee. If you'd like more activity, the Breeze owners will help to make reservations for canopy trips into the jungle, rafting, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, spas or other activities. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever taken. The Breeze - with its comfortable villas, and friendly and caring owners and staff - contributed to our great time. We can't wait to return.

Some tips: We would point out that those looking for a wild bar scene, gambling casinos, exclusive shopping or fancier restaurants will be frustrated in this little town of Tamarindo. However, there are bars and a disco, and we found the preparation of fish and seafood (not so much with the meat) to be excellent in the small local restaurants (Seasons by Shlomy; The Lazy Wave; the Langosta Beach Club; The Sushi Club). Also close to the Breeze, there is a small supermarket, the Tamarindo fitness club that you can attend for a minimal fee, a used book store (Jaime Peligro) at which you can buy and sell books in English, and a medical center that is clean and accessible (English-speaking doc). While the town's population speaks Spanish, French and/or English, even a small knowledge of Spanish is helpful. The most negative side of the trip - many of the roads are unpaved and the flying dust bath is common as vehicles go by. This should improve as development progresses. Also, suggest flying into Liberia airport, about an hour from Tamarindo on the west coast, rather than into farther-away San Jose on the east coast.

We spent 22 days with our family, which included our 3 year old and 5 month old. We absolutely loved The Breeze, and felt so welcomed and comfortable. We used the surfboards almost daily. Enjoyed the monkeys, iguanas and birds always. Dined out or at in, occasionally on the BBQ, with freshly caught fish. Local restaurants are unbelievable, in particular La Baula, Sushi Club and Lazy Wave.

The owners Jean Mark and Rhonda are incredible hosts and stop by daily to check in on everyone. They absolutely wonderful and were always gracious in assisting with any needs or wants.

We will be back and have recommended to many friends already. We can only be so lucky to find a place like The Breeze :)

We couldn't have asked for more! Fantastic 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (huge showers), well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, great outdoor eating space, bbq area and the georgeous outdoor scenery of The Breeze was exactly what our family of four needed. The staff were very helpful with everything from meeting us upon arrival to washing our laundry at a VERY reasonable rate. Beautiful beach and fantastic restarants are within a short walk from The Breeze. If you choose to eat in and cook there is a supermarket within a very short walk as well. I highly recommend a morning smoothy which you can easily whip up with the blenders provided. We travelled with our two young children; ages 5 and 3. All we had to do was put on their swimsuits, life jackets and some SPF and they were ready for the day! The pool was more than fun for our whole family. Thank you Jean Marc and Rhonda for an incredible experience in Tamarindo! Would I recommend this villa? Absolutely!

I got married in the Tamarindo area in August of 2010, and my husband and I chose to stay at The Breeze with 14 of our friends for a week prior to the big day. All I can say is that it was one of the best weeks of our lives and The Breeze definitely had a hand in that.

The best thing about it was that even though it's only steps from the beach, stores, and all the bars, it felt like our own personal oasis. Anabelle and Jose were always available to us no matter what time of day, and tried very hard to make our stay comfortable. They also kept the rooms, pool and communal areas impeccably clean. Rhonda and Jean Marc (the owners) were super nice and also made themselves available to us and were always ready with suggestions about good places to eat and play. They even booked a few excursions for us!

We had the time of our lives there and I would recommend to anyone visiting Costa Rica that they spend some time at The Breeze.

We enjoyed three weeks at The Breeze Tamarindo over the Xmas holidays. The weather was fantastic and the accomodation was clean secure and centrally located to beach and community. Comfortable for 4 we originally thought main living area was small but quickly realized it was perfectly set up for indoor/outdoor living. Jean Marc and Rhonda were knowledgeable and gracious hosts. Great vacation with attentive on site staff ( although some language challenges). Many pleasant hours enjoyed by the semi private pool and a nice opportunity to meet other guests. We also did many day trips from our base from riding in the jungle to kayaking in the estuary. If were to go back the Breeze would be my first choice.
