“Amazing home away from home!”
Reviewed March 18, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We rented Diria 203 from Bluewater Properties in the tall condo building at the back of the property. The Bluewater staff were amazing - very quick to respond to questions, book airport transfers, arrange tours for sailing / snorkelling and Palo Verde.
The condo was clean and very comfortable with a nice view of the pool and a generous balcony for relaxing evenings. The property is well maintained and clean but we did notice a transient sewage odour near the back of the property and steps to the pool deck on two or three occasions. We passed through it quickly and it wasn't overwhelming - but a bit off-putting for such a luxurious place. I wonder if it's the untreated sprinkler water....
As a building science specialist I noticed a few things that needed fixing up like the stucco on the balcony columns, but it didn't negatively affect our stay one bit.
I was a little surprised at food prices in restaurants in the area. Mind you, we didn't really take advantage of the kitchen to cook our own food; we ate out most meals. A meal for 4 with no alcohol ranged from 12- 20,000 CRC for breakfast and lunch and 40,000+ CRC for dinner with two alcoholic beverages. This We had an amazing time and would definitely stay again next time we come to Tamarindo.

“Neutral”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Costa Rican peope are very polite and helpful. Transportation was good. Plenty of buses and taxis to drive around. I loved the artistic way of using wood to create all kinds of decorating items. Condo apartment was beautiful inside. On the outside not too impresive. The magnetic entrance card kept getting damaged when it got closed to keys, or cell phone. Back entrance and parking entrance street were unpaved and there was a lot of dust every place you go. Which is a shame for a tourist place. Umbelievable prices on Food in supermarket. Very expensive. More expensive than in the USA. I notice that there were not public bathroom in the public beaches and local people had signs charging money to tourist for using the bathroom. Again a shame for Tamarindo goverment.

Hola! We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Diria 203 condos and had a good experience with our team. I understand that the prices are actually not that bad in comparison with other touristed areas. Unfortunately USA/Canadian brands are double the price here in the supermarkets which is why we suggest buying local brands and visiting local farmers markets! All the best, The Blue Water properties team!

“Excellent Condo”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This condo was great - clean, comfortable and well appointed. Lots of space and the furnishings were very comfortable and recently updated. We had everything we could want in the kitchen for cooking - some vacation rentals really skimp on cooking utensils, #203 had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable, good linens, plenty of towels. There was a wedding at the hotel one night, and the soundproofing was so good we didn't hear a peep even though the apartment overlooks the pool. We had full use of the Diria grounds and pool areas. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

The one issue was the Diria hotel staff - when checking in, they asked us to sign a contract which allowed them to set up an account for use so that we could charge sundries to the hotel AND the contract allowed the hotel to charge us for the condo (even though we had already paid for the condo in full with the condo rental company blue water). When we refused, the hotel check in clerk was obnoxious - eye rolling, argumentative, and not friendly. We had to ask for a manager, who immediately agreed that we didn't have to sign the contract. So, read anything the hotel gives you carefully.

We are so glad you loved your stay at Diria 203. We agree it's one of the best condos in the Diria!! We are sorry to hear about your experience with the front desk. We do not take this lightly and will be sure to meet with the front desk manager ASAP as this is not acceptable. We have never had an issue with check in and plan to make sure that it doesn't happen again for any of our guests. We hope to have you back in the future!!!

“A perfect experience in Tamarindo”
Reviewed June 22, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We spent 5 nights here over March Break. The condo itself is stunning, even better than the pictures. The people at Bluewater Properties were a pleasure to deal with. Their office was a short walk away and we used their help to book a couple of great tours.
It was perfect having our own condo while still being part of the Diria resort. We booked surfing lessons through the hotel which worked out very well.
We had a rental car. You don't really need one as there is plenty to do within walking distance, but it was nice to explore a bit and go to the bigger supermarket for supplies. We enjoyed all the meals we had out, but my family starts to miss home cooking while travelling. The condo had everything needed for when we prepared meals in.
It was also great to be able to do laundry since we travel light and had spent a couple of days before arriving at the condo doing adventure activities and hiking.
We loved our stay here!
