2 friends and I stayed at the Diria on the recommendation of another friend. We were not disappointed. It is, by far, the nicest beachfront hotel in Tamarindo. The two pools were perfect, and we spent a lot of time in the rear pool with the swim-up bar. There are iguanas all over, and the monkeys come out into the trees over the back pool in the late afternoon, which was cool to watch. We had wonderful service all around the hotel. The breakfast was incredible (and included!). We ended up booking our excursions separately from the concierge, as I felt he was trying to push us to choose a more expensive option, but we simply walked into a surf shop and booked our snorkeling there for less, and with less pressure. Also, the bus transfer to our next location would have been more than twice as much if booked through the concierge. (we booked Gray Lines online, instead).
The location is convenient to the town's bars, shops, and restaurants. We always felt safe walking the town, and the hotel has staff at the gate at all times. Taxis were easy to come by, if needed, although Tamarindo is so small that you can easily walk all over.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area, it was perfect.
