My husband and I stayed here for two weeks while we took Spanish classes. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was refreshing. We liked that there was an outside covered kitchen and wood burning fire pit so we could make some of our own meals (since the restaurants were a little expensive.) Centrally located and a short walk to the beach. The office staff, handiman, and maids were very helpful and friendly. They were committed to taking care of us. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Get the air conditioning!

This is one of the best places we stayed in on our trip through Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Comfortable rooms with private bathroom, a swimming pool and incredible helpful and friendly staff. If possible they'd do anything for you. Breakfast is not included (the hotel has no restaurant) but there is a supermarket just 50m away. The beach is close too, just 100m, and there are lots of good restaurants and even a food court nearby. We truly fell in love with this place,

I will start off by saying that the location of this hotel is very close to the beach (less than 5 minutes away) and one block away from the busiest parts of town. The price of the hotel was reasonably priced for all of the amenities (pool, private villa, A/C, TV, safe, etc.). The grounds of the hotel are very pretty--all of the villas face the pool and each one has a hammock on the deck. However, when we arrived at Villas Macondo we noticed a lot of bugs in the room--around 20 ants, 5 spiders complete with cobwebs, mosquitoes, and 3 unidentified bugs. We notified the receptionist in the office and we were given bug spray to take care of the bugs and a reasoning of "It is rainy season so they come into the rooms". (This workaround through us off a little bit.) After we thoroughly sprayed the room, there were still more bugs present. We talked to the office staff the next day and they were very apologetic and helpful so we could stay. They offered for us an apartment villa for the same price, but when we toured it we notice more ants and the rooms smelt of weed. The staff was kind enough to give us back our money for the other 3 nights we were supposed to stay there. I would recommend this hotel during the dry season.

The stone road throws you off, I just "happened across" the hotel. Beautiful grounds, great pool, office staff is awesome. For Tamarindo the price was very reasonable as well, highly recommend the place! Because I found this place I extended my stay in Tamarindo an extra night.

This is a beautiful getaway in busy Tamarindo, yet still close enough to a grocery store, restaurants, shopping and 5 min. walk from the beach. The rooms were great. Our room had a flat screen TV, a/c, mini fridge, hot showers & lock box. Very reasonably priced! Loved the pool! We also really enjoyed the front deck with table & chairs and a hammock. Kitchen appeared to be lacking a bit... All the staff very friendly and welcoming. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Macondo. We would definitely visit again :)

This place is fantastic. Rooms are large, and is kind of like a little apartment. Each room has its own little deck with a hammock. Not luxury, but very comfortable.

Very secure place, with a locked/coded gate required for entry. We presume that there's also a safe in every room (as there was one in ours). Villas Macondo is a short walk to the beach, but there's also a pool with a shaded area if you need a break from the sun.

The hotel doesn't provide food, but there is a communal kitchen/refrigerator for everyone's use. Would definitely stay here again/recommend it to friends.
