We arrived on time to the check in around 10min before 15:00, the recepcionist doesn't apply the payment because the room wasn't ready yet, we walked to the bar and asked for a beer.. 15min later we had to wait for 1hour in the line at the reception.
All the pricess are in dollars but they dont charge you the payment in dollars because "they cant".
THE ROOM, the bed has a huge edges eliminating all the space into de little room, it doesnt have fridge so you cant no take any food with you, it has a good view, it has AC, but you can hear all the sounds of the neighbors and ofc they can hear you too, the bathroom it's too little too.
Breakfast, terrible! I asked for fried overeasy eggs and the gave to me 2 eggs overcooked and they were greasy.
About the good things its very near to the beach and they loan some equipment to the beach.

We had a great time in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The town and people were accommodating and the surf was great. Our group stayed in the best mansions to the average hotels everyone had a great time. My first time to central america so not that knowledgeable but we had a fun family and friends weddling.

I am about to go to Tamarindo in the beginning of January 2020 and booked the hotel way back in June. l sent messages to request single beds and they only just answered yesterday!! They then informed me the the night we arrive and for four days there will be an underground house music festival at the hotel that goes on for 24hrs each day. This is also located right in front of our room.
I do not understand why they did not inform us sooner, as leaving it so late has made it difficult to find an alternative hotel at a good price.
I love a party and house music, however if that’s what l wanted l would be going to Ibiza and not all that way to Costa Rica. Their conduct is very disappointing and unacceptable.
I feel sorry for other guests that are going to have sleepless nights and the peace and tranquility of the holiday ruined....
Fortunately l found a lovely place to stay and they also answer any questions by return the same day!!!!

We stayed here for two nights. Pictures gives a very deceptive picture. When we checked in, the rooms were very basic, sheets had stains on them and no soap in the bathroom. The towels were old and yellowish.
The pool area was not appealing at all. The pool water was dirty. Kids didn’t want to go inside.
Overall a mediocre and average place
