Myself and 6 other family members stayed in this 13 room wonderful Hotel for 9 nights. We picked it because there were rooms with 2 queen sized beds. One of our rooms even had 2 queen beds plus a single bed (there are also rooms with just one bed). We also choose this hotel because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. Once again, Trip Advisor advised us properly.
STAFF..... The Owner Richard and all of the staff at this hotel are outstanding. Upon arriving he showed us around the grounds and the room answering any questions. We arrived at 1 AM and he was there with a smile and ready to make us feel welcome. Richard was always around to make sure everything was to our liking.
GABBY.... the front desk gal was super. She arranged tours for us and was always there to help us with any requests or questions.
COCO (the breakfast gal)..... she is by far the most happy and helpful hotel staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. And imagine this.... we don't speak the same language. She just aims to please and has a smile and personality that'll just warm your heart. She is amazing and makes great omelettes too. Coco is really one of the reasons the Arco Iris is a great place to stay.
THE ROOMS.... The rooms are newly remodeled, VERY clean, spacious, BEDS comfortable. Coffee maker and coffee in the rooms. Great bathroom with lots of room on a shelf below the sink to store your makeup case etc. Blow Dryer in bathroom. Safe in the Room. Nice place to sit outside of your room and relax or visit. We saw one bug, but this is a tropical country, it will happen. I also saw a bug in my own home last week, it happens. NOICE... some reviewers have complained about the noice at night from the restaurant. It's only a few rooms that hear it and even in those rooms, it ends at 10PM or earlier, so really it's not a problem.
POOL and SEASONS RESTAURANT.... the pool is nice with comfy chairs. SEASONS restaurant right at the Hotel (only open for dinner) and is the best Restaurant in Tamarindo. We went twice it was so good. We also enjoyed Longboards (have the nachos) and Pantagonia (at Pantagonia make sure you make reservations).
THE Hotel Arco Iris is the main reason we enjoyed our stay in Tamarindo. Tamarindo is nice but Hotel Arco Iris is Fabulous. It is amazing and I highly recommend it.
Thank-you Richard, Gabby and Coco.... we think you are VERY good at what you do. Keep up the good work so you can make many more travellers smile.
