Just OK

The people where nice and only stayed for one night. The hotel is a little dated and can use an upgrade.

Better than expected

The location is great, across the road from the quiet section of the beach. The walk to town is only a couple of minutes. Although the rooms are simple they are sparkling clean. If you like a luxurious room, you should look elsewhere. But for us they were functional. The walls are a bit thin, and we notified the night staff when our neighbor blasted the tv. The night staff notified the guest and we were able to sleep in peace and quiet. Communication with the reception was at times tricky. English was not spoken by the night staff, but we took it in stride and had fun teaching English. All the staff was friendly and helpful, they tried hard to make sure everything was ok. If you stay at Hotel Pueblo Dorado you will truly feel you are in a foreign country, and to us this was a great plus combined with a bit of adventure.

Don't stay here!

Pros: it is off the path of tourists.
Location: Tamarindo is a surf village - nothing more - perfect for the regular american tourist - as there very few local food establishments.
Hotel is noisy, small and not worth the money. Unless you surf - do not waste your time in Tamarindo (Try Playa Conchal instead - which is much more a holiday location).

Good hotel in a very good spot

Pros: Yummy breakfast with selection of fresh fruit, cereals, eggs or sausage, quite, and clean.
Location: Close to the stripe beach, and good restaurants...
I stayed here with my family over New Year's. It is a nice hotel, nice staff, and not in the strip but close enough to walk. (And far enough to have some quiet time) They have a walk through the beach right in front and good restaurants around.... Would definitely go again!

Think twice....

Book there if you don't have any other options, it's a budget hotel. The room was small and had just the basic necessities. The only part that was positive was its location. It is located in the touristy area of Tamarindo close to shops and restaurants on the main strip.

alright little place.

Cons: needs private bathroom doors
Nice little hotel, the rooms are small, and the bathroom doors are angled vents, so they are super not provide. They could do better to change the doors on the bathrooms to the rooms. Otherwise its alright, not a far walk into town, maybe 10 minutes. Its pretty cheap though, so you get what you pay for.

Nice, but a bit expensive

Posted Jan 4, 2012
Nice location, with easy access to the beach. However, it seemed a bit overpriced, especially because there is no restaurant or cafe/breakfast at the hotel.
