Small hotel off the main strip of Tamarindo
Posted Mar 24, 2015
Spent 3 nights at Hotel Mahayana. It's a very small hotel, only a few rooms surrounding a small pool and has an outdoor communal kitchen. The hotel is on a dirt road-off the main strip of hotels, bars and restaurants; which makes it very quiet. I Didn't see much of the owner, Cecile, only the day I arrived and one early morning when she makes coffee for everyone. I believe she's usually up by reception during the day if you have any questions or want to book an excursion. The room is very basic, just a bed, mini fridge, small tv and small bathroom attached. The outdoor kitchen was very cute, although I didn't really use it- but was useful for making myself some cereal in the morning. I would really recommend this place for couples who are looking for some peace and quiet. I wouldn't really recommend it for people travelling alone, because it can feel isolating- although I prefer it to staying in a loud hostel.
