Beautiful hotel

Posted Mar 2, 2017
We were pleasantly surprised when we checked into this hotel. The pool was amazing and had a very quiet and calming atmosphere. It was out of the busy Tamarindo area but was a quick 10 minute drive into town. Would definitely recommend this hotel to theirs and stay there again!

Nice hotel in the middle of NOWHERE

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Location: So far away from Tamarindo! It's not convenient
This hotel should not have Tamarindo I'm the name ( false advertising) it may technically be in Tamarindo but it is nowhere near the town or surfing. You must have a car, they do not offer a shuttle. Now if you are looking for a pool holiday in the middle of nowhere the pool is fantastic The rooms are clean and nice. Free breakfast was good! The other disturbing item was they had a kitten in distress and hungry on the property I have brought this to the managers attention. They need to feed this cat! Please if you stay there save your food scraps it will eat anything is super loving and affectionate and all open air resorts need a cat to keep down the rodent population. I have run a hotel in rural Panama a cat is a must. It was quite upsetting to see a animal that hungry.

8 kilometers from the beach.

Posted Feb 5, 2017
Pros: Nice and quiet at night. Great swimming pool and the food at the hotel was wonderful.
Cons: The single beds could be improved in quality. There was the smell of moth balls in the bathroom which was unpleasant.
Location: Nothing was nearby. 8 km from downtown.
The staff was great. Cab rides to downtown were $10 each way.

Good hotel near Tamarindo

Posted Feb 1, 2017
Pros: Location
This was my 4th stay at this hotel and it keeps being my favorite option when I visit the area. Although it is not right at Tamarindo, it is an easy 10 min drive to get there. You avoid the noise and the crowds at night, so expect a very good sleep in a quiet place. Dining options are limited, but we went to Tamarindo at night to take a walk and get some food. What I like the most is that you are basically at mid way from going to several beaches there: Tamarindo, Playa Grande and Conchal. If you are getting there by car, you will be fine. If you travel by bus, you will have limited mobility.

Nice stay in Costa Rica

Posted Jan 30, 2017
My husband and I stayed for 5 nights, it was a short trip, little getaway from the everyday grind. The hotel staff was really nice and very welcoming. The hotel is only 10 min drive away from Tamarindo($10 cab ride each way). The hotel is small and cozy, and very quiet. The room was okay, small but it was just my husband and I; we spent most our day in Tamarindo or visiting the beaches near by (playa conchal, y playa flamingo) so we hardly were there. Only negative no mini fridge so if you purchased any beverages there was no way of keeping it cool(we asked for ice at the hotel restaurant every time we made a drink). Also, if you slept in, housekeeping wouldn't clean your room until the next morning.

Private hotel away from resorts

Posted Aug 27, 2016
Nice private hotel away from the chaos of resorts. Nice pool, nice outdoor restaurant serving complimentary breakfast and dinner, with lunch available at a charge. Great fresh food. Super friendly and accommodating staff. Close to beaches and towns. Only downfall.. Bed was too hard.
