Affordable and convenient to town

Posted Feb 25, 2016
The condos are spacious and offer all the amenities, albeit sometimes slightly damaged. The pools are small and very cold, but are usually not too crowded. The staff are very nice and friendly, but don't get involved in booking tours or anything. They will give you recommendations, but then you are on your own. There was also no phone in our condo, so make sure you have an international phone plan. The beaches are about a 10-15 minute drive away as is Tamarindo center. It is in a quiet, safe location.

Condominium not a hotel

Posted Feb 21, 2016
Pros: Robert was delightful and very helpful with directions, etc.
Cons: Wording needs to be improved so that you know that you are booking a condo not a hotel.
I feel that Expedia is misrepresenting this condo as a hotel. The wording needs to be more specific as I feel it is misleading. When you stay at a hotel you expect to have housekeeping and as this is a CONDO, you do not have housekeeping. It can be arranged but at a an additional cost. Had I known that this was a condo I would have probably stayed elsewhere as I was going away for the weekend, to relax not to work.

Close to beaches

Posted Feb 15, 2016
Pros: We felt very safe and secure at The Oaks with a gate and 24 hr security and we enjoyed being able to hear the howler monkeys off in the woods.
Location: Downtown Tamarindo is worth the trip, including Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings and it's right on the beach. Many beaches within driving distance
This was our first time in Costa Rica. We are so glad we chose The Oaks to stay in for 10 days. The grounds are beautifully kept and our condo was perfect. We also had a full kitchen, grill, dishwasher, and a full laundry room with washer and dryer. We saved a lot by eating at the condo and we frequented the full grocery store in Tamarindo, about 5 minutes away. The store also had an ATM machine that we used with a choice of American dollars or Costa Rican collones. The location was perfect with many beaches within easy driving distance. Our favorite was Playa Conchal which was a little calmer than others. Playa Tamarindo is better for surfers and brave boogie boarders. Would I stay here again? YES!

Great family lodgings

Posted Jan 6, 2012
Pros: Great staff. Extremely nice units. Safe, clean & good location.
Cons: None. It was wonderful!
Location: This development is between Huacas & Villarreal. Bordered by jungle. Peaceful (Tamarindo is busy and touristy). Few minute drive to restaurants etc.
The Oaks Tamarindo is a wonderful place to anchor your stay in Costa Rica. The units are beautifully done, with all the amenities you might expect from a upscale property in the US. Three pools, a very helpful staff, and plenty of monkeys right outside your door for daily wake-up calls. Clean, safe, gorgeous, and centrally located for daily excursions. Excellent!
