We stayed here for 1 night on our honeymoon, after coming from Flamingo Beach and the Arenal area before that. Our ocean view room with a balcony was lovely with a gorgeous view. The hotel staff surprised us with chocolate covered strawberries and flower petals in the shape of a heart for our honeymoon! We appreciated that Tamarindo was a more lively town than where we had just come from at Flamingo beach, and the beach had more waves than Flamingo. We thought staying at both beaches was a great mix. We just wished we had stayed 2 nights here instead of 1 on our trip, as 1 night wasn't really enough. We took a surfing lesson and loved it. The only negative things I would say about the hotel are really more about the town of Tamarindo in comparison to Flamingo Beach: 1) We'd read that the beach at Tamarindo is not quite as clean as Flamingo, though it looks very clean and gorgeous, and we did get sick the day after our surfing lesson. We don't know if that was due to inhaling water when falling off our surf boards or due to something else. 2) There are more people selling things on the beach in Tamarindo and we didn't see any in Flamingo. However, Tamarindo is bigger than Flamingo and the differences are to be expected in a bigger town versus smaller. We really enjoyed the nighlife in Tamarindo and the plentiful shops. We highly, highly recommend this hotel and visiting Tamarindo--especially if you decide to stay at both Flamingo and Tamarindo to get two great, but different, experiences.
