Great hotel right on the beach with beautiful pool

Posted Apr 7, 2014
We booked a pool facing room which was a great location and a 100 foot walk to the beach. The beach is beautiful and the pools are gorgeous. The room is nothing special but comfortable beds and AC. Breakfast is included and its plenty and it covered our breakfast and lunch. Highly recommend this hotel!

Best Location

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Traveled with my teenage daughter. We had an ocean view room (highly recommended) and enjoyed the beautiful views. Hotel is very nice, beds are comfortable and rooms are quiet (NOT always the case at nice resorts in Central America, etc). Location was perfect--next to nice part of the beach and all the restaurants. Would not stay anywhere else. Downsides--shower was either freezing cold or scorching hot; too many locals selling their stuff on the beach--gets very annoying (but that is true all over the beach, not a problem with this resort in particular…). Pool area is marginal (very nice pool across the street away from the beach--no on there--for good reason, we come to see the beach/ocean!). Very good breakfast included--large selection.

Nice, secure resort close to the beach

Posted Mar 18, 2014
Pros: Secure resort, great pools to choose from w/ 1 for adults only, beautiful grounds & extremely friendly, polite staff. Would occasionally see monkeys!
Cons: Very low water pressure/flow from shower was frustrating. It would have been nice to have a mini refrigerator in the room.
Location: Be sure to notice that many of the restaurants (even those not owned by the resort) include a 10% gratuity regardless of party size.
Spent a week of vacation here, mostly relaxed at the beach or pool. If you decide to go see the turtles take a towel so you have something to sit on while you're waiting...& take along something to drink.

Good room, access to beach and town, poor service

Posted Mar 16, 2014
Cons: service
Location: Shopping in town, beach access
We thought the hotel, rooms, food, and access to beach and town were very good. There are lots of other hotels around, but they seemed one or two levels below. Unfortunately, the hotel had consistently below average staff; needed to be reminded to move bags from one room to another, front desk slow, food-service staff was very poor; had to go find them to get a drink or bring the check (but brought out food hot!), just over-all staff seemed demotivated and poorly trained. Probably because we just came off a 5 night stay at the Azul Ocean Club, that was outstanding (and 1/2 the price), it was a tough act to follow. (5 star hotel and service at Azul Ocean Club; (but terrible roads!!))

The Hotel is very good. Service is exceptional.

Posted Mar 14, 2014
Pros: Above.
Cons: More kids club options/baby siting.
Location: Maybe a movie theater in the area would be nice.
We like everything about the hotel. The view, services, restaurants, employees, etc.

OK hotel center of town

Posted Mar 8, 2014
Pros: Location, Breakfast included, waffles or pancakes, hash browns, beans and rice, sausage, eggs, yogurt, cereal..... Safe in room, refrig & coffee maker
Cons: Service is Terrible at restaurants and bars. Wait staff inattentive and slow. Food and drink prices are very high. 10% service is included.
Location: Restaurants recommended: Bamboo Sushi Club (across street) Portofino for lunch (one block away on beach). Patagonia (next to Bamboo sushi) do ATV!
Stayed one week in premium room on beach. Room was dated. Needs upgrading for prices charged. Front desk staff and tour desk staff is good. Location is excellent. Don't need a car. Need air conditioning, Unbearable without. They tout that sunset is beautiful from this location, but sunset is more southerly, and difficult to see directly. We had second floor room 216. Good room next to stairs (no elevators). Hotel employees have very limited English.

Fantastic Hotel on the beach

Posted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: The facilities were excellent and scenic, the proximity to the beach was excellent.
Cons: There was a construction site directly beside the hotel that was not aesthetically pleasing, and sometimes dust drifted over to the resort.
Location: There were numerous restaurants located within the resort town. The restaurants run by the Diria were top class
I had a fantastic stay at the Tamarindo Diria. The hotel was excellent, the staff were super, and the continental breakfast was a great mix of Western and Costa Rican food.
