I stayed here after a spiritual & wellness retreat in a nearby town, so I wanted to stay for a few days in Tamarindo in a quiet and private place where I can decompress and relax before returning home, and I have found it here!
La Ramona Charming Hotel has just 5 rooms all facing a courtyard with a pool in a quiet residential area just a short walk to the beach and main retail/restaurant strip of Tamarindo (away from the noise and traffic). My room was very comfortable with tall vaulted ceilings, your own porch with seating, a nice modern layout, and a large bathroom with a unique shower that opens out to your own outdoor space (good for drying your towels and swimsuits).
Mariana, the hotel owner is such a sweetheart! So friendly and charming (the hotel should be called Mariana Charming Hotel!). She made me a satisfying breakfast every morning which was a great start to the day. Lisa, Mariana's dog is very sweet and friendly. She would often greet me with excitement when I return through the main entrance/gate and would say hi to me if I'm in the pool or the dining patio.
Mariana took good care of me while I was there which made my stay so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for peace and quiet at a good value.
Thank you, Mariana! Pura Vida!
