Perfect for a week long getaway.

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: The proximity to the beach. Great service.
Cons: The continental breakfast.
Location: A safe and comfortable 5 minute walk to the center of town. You can book all your tours at the hotel. Great if you don't want to rent a car.
We booked our villa at the last minute and couldn't be happier with the service and the facilities. We took public transportation from San Jose to Tamarindo and the bus dropped us off right in front of the hotel. We also got picked up by the bus in front of the hotel on the way back to San Jose. The hotel is a comfy five minute walk from the center of town and just across the street from the beach. Great view of the ocean from the pool! Perfect for families or long stays because the kitchen is fully equipped. The continental breakfast was a little plain (the same options every day). However you do have the option to purchase breakfast from a menu if you're not in the mood for the light continental options.

Pros: Location, staff, and the size of the room
Cons: There was a problem with the sink continuous flow of water after being turned off but nothing serious
Location: Beach, restaurants, clubs, bars, and etc...
This hotel is in a great location. Very close to the beach and not far away from the strip of bars, clubs, and restaurant's. The hotel staff was great and if you go to this location ask for Stephanie who is a travel agent with the hotel. She provided me with a lot of information and I really appreciated it. I will be coming back to Costa Rica!! Pura Vida!!!

Friendly hotel close to beach

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: The friendly staff was so helpful. I also like being on the main road but not down town. There was some quite being down the road.
Cons: A sign to locate the lobby upon arrival! We were confused and walked all the way up the drive when it was actually in a small building at entrance
Location: Very short walk (5 min) to the end of the road with shops, food, other hotels. Super close to the beach - surfing, paddle board. Close to everything
We stayed here hoping to have proximity to the beach and that is what we got. Just cross the street and you're on the beach. The staff was super friendly and helpful and most things you needed were provided. The view from the pool and bar was awesome and Friday night at Crazy Monkey was a great time!

Sweet stay

Staff are very accommodating and cleanliness is maintained impeccably. They even did my dishes!? Location fantastic, slightly away from central Tamarindo though walking distance. Located at an excellent end of the beach. Room was very spacious and comfortable.

Great hotel/location!

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: The size of the room and location.
Cons: Housecoats would be amazing if provided. Hotel mentioned partial ocean view but we could not see the ocean from our room.
Location: Directly across from the beach and close to all the restaurants and shops. Great views from the pool/restaurant level.
Great location close to the beach and shops. Very large room (rented a villa) with one bedroom and sunken living room. The room was very clean and the staff were pleasant. The free breakfast was decent. The food and drinks were amazing and very reasonably priced. Would come back again and recommend to anyone.

Need easy improvements.

Posted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Employees are very helpful and corteous, from the front desk through the maids to pool bar and restaurant servers. The pool is public so from weekends until Monday it get a little duty and crowded, from Tuesday and on the chemicals and equipment could handle that but only the outside borders where the water spills still duty due not been cleaned as appropriated due a crowded pool. First day we did not had a hot water in the shower as well the water pressure was incredible low but was fixed until the EOD of the 2nd stay. For unknown reasons people burn leaves and tree branches to clean-up the yard that produces strong smoke and odor. The beach exit so far still available but seems that not for long time, once been in another side of the street and not been part of the hotel property. Other than that the pool view is awesome, the breakfast is great and the bedrooms are well cleaned
