Hotel Flores is a great little B&B hotel that is up and away from the main streets in Tamarindo. Requires a little bit of a walk to get to the main part of town, but its not bad at all.
Me and the wife stayed in Room # 6, and we loved it for the 4 days we were there. I think the main thing that you have to keep in mind is you are not paying for a 5 star hotel experience here - you are wanting a place to crash at night after a days activities, kinda a "home base" if you will.
Has fridge with freezer so that you can get your water cold and icy, keep some basic snacks and drinks if you don't want to pay a lot of money for the same from restaurants, and TV and access to Wifi so you can keep a small connection with the outside world if you need to. There are clotheslines right outside the doors for your swimsuit and towels, was actually a very nice touch. The staff will provide you with extra towels for the beach. Hotel itself has a great little pool to chill at, which we took advantage of when the winds on the beach got too crazy one of the days. Was nice to have for that reason...
As far as some issues - or things that may be improved - I did see a couple of ants crawling around on the floor. This was only after I made a few sandwiches for our tours one day and didn't bother to sweep the crumbs out the door. Maybe they can just get some better sealant under the doors. The wifi in the rooms was kinda iffy, but that may have been just that room, the wifi outside and in the dining area was fine. Other than that, we had no problems, and felt like we would definitely go back next time if we had the chance!
