I had a lovely time at this hotel. Cecile the owner is such a gracious, kind, and caring host. She goes out of her way to ensure you have a comfortable and fun stay. She knows everything that is going on in the city and really takes care off her guests. Her dog Maya is so friendly as well. My experience in Tamarindo will forever be remembered for the beautiful beaches, glowing sunsets, and the warm heart of our host Cecile.
CONDITION: The hotel is in great condition. Newly painted walls, clean sheets, comfortable beds, clean working bathrooms with hot water. Rooms include AC, ceiling fan, a fridge, a safe, and closet. Right outside your door is a patio with a table, chairs and a hammock to enjoy a morning coffee or book and the sounds of nature. There is a nice cool spa with jets that you can see pictures of with a clean wooden deck. They also have an outdoor kitchen/bar/hangout area if you don't want to get involved with the commotion of down town.
LOCATION: 5 minutes walking distance to a local market, late night food places that are open until 4 am, the beach, and the downtown strip but far away enough that you are not disturbed by the noise.
VALUE: Really affordable and well worth every penny. I would stay here every time.
