Looking for a comfort to sleep at?

This is a little gem across the street from the beach on the main strip in Tamarindo. The receptionist said that they'd been under new management for 2 months when I stayed there March 2019. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and great location - this is your spot. The rooms are small but I don't go to the beach to spend time in my room, It was clean, hot water and very comfortable beds. Air conditioner worked great and a nice duvet on the bed. There was a small bar fridge and TV. Desk between the 2 beds with a night light. There is a sitting area. For breakfast we chose off of the menu ... it was delicious. So much in fact that we returned to get lunch from the same place after we'd already checked out. If you're coming to spend time on the beach and want a comfortable, clean place to lay your head at night, I highly recommend this place. I will definitely be booking in here again next time I'm in Tamarindo.

Aucune comoditées dans la chambre, personnel générlement abscent. Par contre, VRAIMENT bien situé.

Malo, a partir de las 17hs ya no había recepcionista. No hicieron la limpieza de la habitación. Tenia mal olor. Lo único bueno es que esta frente a la playa
