We stayed here for one night and were impressed with the reception upon arrival. They helped us park, walked us in and showed us to our room. It had great music playing in the restaurant and was very quiet when it was time for bed. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Cocodrillo hotel for our first visit to Tamarindo . The hotel is a fairly typical older hotel with a few quirks - but the location and the views from the upstairs rooms 11 & 12 are just amazing ! The location is great as well as you are close to all of the beach action but just far enough to be quiet when you want . A 2 minute walk to the beach and the owners were super accommodating as well

The door to our room was unable to lock. The shower did not have hot water. Extremely loud music was played until midnight. There isn't a nice walk to the beach from the hotel.. There is a huge drop off that looks like a dried up river. That area needs crossed to get to the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The TV in the room was the size of a computer monitor and their reception was poor.

Great place to stay! I stayed on the ocean side bottom floor and it was so amazing to be able to walk right to the beach. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. The staff was very nice as well. TV didn't really work, but that's fine because I wasn't in CR to watch TV. Walkable to the entire town. The only thing you need to note is that this is absolutely NOT soundproof like the listing says. I heard everything outside as well as in the next rooms and upstairs.

I would recommend this Hotel to anyone that wants a quiet no-frills stay in Tamarindo. Great owners and decent rooms. Close to the beach, but far enough from the noise.
