“GREAT place in Tamarindo”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Trish was a wonderful hostess and could not be any more pleasant, friendly and helpful. The Beach Bungalows the 'Treehouse' was clean, well maintained, daily maid service and anything else you might want. If you just returned from the day at the beach she offered a beer, water and anything else that she had. Her friend Claudio who owns the local dive shop was just as nice & helpful. The entire experience there made it a great trip, and we rate it 10 out of 10. Let's not forget the breakfast every day which was always eggs as you want them, toast, French toast, orange juice and always hot fresh coffee. It was an endless pot and if she had anything else you were welcomed to it. Her directions were always good, and if only I paid a little more attention to her we would probably not have got lost in the mountains. The people in Costa Rica are friendly and there is virtually no horn honking which is strange for someone living near NYC. Try it you will like it .

Trish, Claudio and their competent staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make us feel welcomed and comfortable at their cozy B&B.

In all ways they were helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating in meeting our needs.

The setting is clean, attractive and well-located and the breakfasts are delicious.

Such a wonderful stay at the Beach Bungalows. Not only is this spot a little paradise, but Trish, Claudio, and Matteo went out if their way to make our everything easy and perfect. I came down with three girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. Trish was incredible--from greeting us with a beer, to planning our surfing and sailing adventures, to serving me my breakfast with a candle in it for my birthday, to arranging a surprise birthday cake on the catamaran. I kinda just want to live in the bungalow forever. Thanks for everything!!!

Hi, Mary! We are so delighted to have been a part of your 30th birthday celebration (and super happy we were able to pull off the surprise birthday cake on the Blue Dolphin)!! I have always thought that the Bungalows is the perfect place to bring a group of friends because of its small size and intimate nature, and I'm glad that you were able to do it!! We hope you come back with more of your friends next time!! Have a great year and more great travels, Trish

The Beach Bungalows far exceeded our expectations. The cosy rooms were perfect for us. The rooms have a bed, closet, bathroom, and a safe. Under the unit there is a hammock and chair for relaxing by the pool. Trish, Claudio, and Mateo were very gracious hosts. We felt welcome from the moment we walked on the property. Trish even made dinner reservations for us one night and booked us on the Blue Dolphin tour. It is only a short walk to the main drag and to the beach.

First off, you will not find a better bed and breakfast anywhere (especially for the great price)! Trish and Claudio were amazing hosts that truly made you feel like family throughout your stay with them. Each bungalow is facing the center pool and they are extremely unique and romantic. Under each of the bungalows is an outdoor private sitting area that has a combination of either a hammock or pool-side bed / comfy seating. On the top level of the bungalows is the main room where the bed and bathroom/shower are. The rooms are impeccably clean and beautifully decorated, and they give off a very chill "vibe" that is exactly what you're looking for on your beach vacation. Before coming to Costa Rica I had a "few" questions (lol), and Trish would always immediately write back to me answering anything that I needed info on. The home-made breakfast in the morning is fantastic (and I don't even eat breakfast) but my girlfriend and I looked forward to the meal every single morning. There is a common area with a grill and small kitchen to use if you want to make dinner from local produce at the store. The bungalows allow for nice privacy, but if you find yourself to be social the property is also great to meet other people as well. If you are fortunate enough you may even find some new friends to join in on a night out on the town (Shout-out to activities director: Karlyn - for all the fun that we don't remember haha). As for the town, Tamarindo is completely safe and the locals are friendly. There is plenty to do during the day (beach/adventure excursions/diving/boat sailings) and many restaurants/bars to choose from at night. The water and beaches are beautiful. The bungalows are less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. Trish has all the great tips on places to visit, and Claudio can arrange an awesome dive trip for you if you're into that (He owns the dive shop with a great staff). We stayed 9 nights total and had an absolutely fantastic time. Thank you Trish, Claudio, and Matteo for everything! I've never met nicer people in all of my travels.....You guys rock. Pura Vida!

Your Friends,
Charlie & Nicole

Room Tip: All of the rooms are equally as great! You honestly can't go wrong.

The Beach Bungalows has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and a super yummy breakfast! It is easy to make friends with the other guests, and Trish is a fabulous host, so accommodating and fun! The bungalows are clean and are more than I expected - the pictures don't do it justice. The location is perfect - close to the beach, but away from the noise - and Trish has lots of suggestions for nightlife, trips, and restaurants. You will never be bored, and it's hard to leave a place as beautiful as this. It's a super bargain for the price!!

Room Tip: All the bungalows are great, but I thought the Treehouse was really cute.

This place is absolutely amazing. The minute you got in the Beach Bungalows you feel home immediately (and obviously better than home since your on vacay). Everything is perfect including Trish & Claudio, the incredible hosts. They are so warm and nice people. They want us to be happy, therefore, they are always available to chat and answer our questions. I've stayed for 3 weeks and I would have stayed longer since I felt so good about the place. Was also very cool to mingle with people from all around the world. My bungalow was clean, the bed was comfy as well as the pillows. The breakfast included was a great way to start my day. And if ever you feel like watching tv or series, they have a TV room to help you out. The common area is perfect to cook dinner or have a bbq with friends. My highlights were the cool area they have underneath each bungalow...perfect setting for an afternoon nap or to chill with a beer and your ipad, the breakfast and also the swimming pool to dive after a morning run. Not directly on the beach but I've walked to the beach to get surf lessons or to run and I never felt it was to far away from the beach. Actually it's a good thing since you are not in the middle of the noisy area. This place is a must-go. When you will be there, please say hello to Trish & Claudio (and Matteo) for me :)
