Several friends and I stayed at the Diria in late August and had a great time. We stayed in a room across the small street and had no problem. The walk is only about 2 minutes from our room to the sand. We enjoyed the pool across the street as well. It was mostly empty throughout our whole stay.
The location of the hotel is excellent. You are in the middle of several shops and restaurants. I recommend Witch's Rock (limbo!) and Hotel Pasatiempo (open mike night) for nights out! We had a great time at both places and both places are about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.
The breakfast (included in the price of your stay) is really great. It is a buffet style and had something for everyone.
Bring an umbrella! In August, it rained just about every day and mostly around 4 pm. Sometimes it lasted an hour and sometimes it lasted 4 hours.
I recommend renting scooters from Tamarindo Adventures. We rented 6 scooters for about 6 hours and paid around $30 each. We spent all day driving and visiting different beaches and shops. It was amazing!
