“Exceptional Value and Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Our group consisted of five people and all of us truly enjoyed the hotel, the staff and the Monkey Bar. The views from the Corona Suite were absolutely awesome. The hotel staff were super friendly, trustworthy and very helpful with everything. The hotel is ideally located to shopping, restaurants, and all of the best surf breaks. Room related issues, which were minimal, were handled immediately and with a smile. The Monkey Bar and Fernando are classic! Our group will be returning to the Best Western next June... Thanks Trevor for another outstanding visit!!!

Room Tip: The Corona and Corona Deluxe Suites are super affordable and provide exceptional full ocean views an...

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The included breakfast was more than adequate. The location was ideal and you can not beat the price. The food and drinks were good and my son and I especially enjoyed the Hawaiian pizza. The staff and service was far above what you would expect from a hotel in this price range. The staff - Trevor was in the breakfast area most mornings and went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying our stay and that we were happy with our room. He made many great suggestions for things we might enjoy and even drew us a custom map to get to Playa Conchal for snorkeling. His advice was spot on and we experienced many beautiful uncrowded beaches. I also must mention Fernando. He would have delicious fruit smoothies made for my son before he could even have time to ask for one and he loaned us his personal boogie board for my son to use on our last day so we didn't have to rent one. Our housekeeper Maria was also great. She recognized a flip flop after noticing my son only had one in the room and she returned it to us. She also did a great job cleaning our room and made it so comfortable to lay in a clean bed after being in the ocean and covered with sand all day. The Friday night party was awesome with great music and great drinks. My son and his friend really enjoyed jumping off the waterfall at the pool also. We enjoyed the sunsets from the All in all I would definitely stay here again if I travel back to Tamarindo. I don't think you will find better service and staff in this price range.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor for a little better view.

This place was great! Awesome view from the top floor rooms, Good Food Good service, and Great People, one of the best vacations ever! Javier, Trevor, Fernando, Andre, Sandara, and many others were all fantastic! Great company, not to mention I would have had no clue where to find even half of the local activities without them. There is also a party thrown at the Monkey Bar in the hotel on Fridays that gathers people from all over the place. It is a lot of fun if you can make it. Hope to come back as soon as possible =)

Thanks so much for the great shout out about our place. We really do have great ocean views, not just from the top floors, but all over, including from our pool. Our staff is so well versed in Tamarindo activities that you can find out what to do from virtually anyone, anywhere in the hotel. Seems like you found that out. We, too, hope to see you around here very soon.

Had a blast since day one....it was just my husband and I and we did the Friday night party at the bar area and had so much fun! We are in out 30"s so for us we fit right in. You can have your cake and eat it too! We had the free breakfast while enjoying the ocean view which was magnificent! The staff there is very helpful in directing you to local shops, food, and fun. We especially fell in love with Evelen she was amazing, charasmatic, and full of information. Trevor which was another great help to us filled us in on some hot spots that we visited while staying in Tamarindo. I will deffinetlyl give this stay a 100% rating!

Room Tip: corner room upstairs was amazing...no view but you wake up to the chirping of birds....very tranquil...

Wow , 100% thanks for that. We’re blushing with pride at the comments you made about us. You were a great, fun couple who really appreciated our unique staff, great views, smart prices, and extracurricular event on Friday night. What more could we ask for?

I had a great time at the Vista Villas. The service was very friendly, the restaurant very accessible, and the pool always enjoyable. The restaurant and the pool are contiguous, so you can sit in the pool while enjoying a drink at the bar. The employees, especially Fernando, Evelyn, Erika, Javier, Gilberto and Adofo were very friendly and helpful.

I would love to return to the Vista Villas as soon as possible!

Brooklyn in the house! Gotta love those New Yorkers! Thanks for recapping your great stay with us. I think you named about every employee in the bar/restaurant and reception. That’s a good indication of how widespread our positive energy and desire to please is within the hotel. We’d love to have you back for one of those drinks at the swimup bar, so come visit us again real soon.
