    5/5 Excellent

    Great location, just minutes from the beach but far enough away to have a quiet sleep. Rooms and property were as advertised and very clean. Hosts were very friendly and lots of great advice and recommendations upon arrival. Breakfast is definitely worth it. Would love to go back!

    Stayed 2 nights in Mar 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    We paid for the daily breakfast and it was beyond worth it. Every morning was a different meal and always fresh and tasty. The couple that runs the villa are great people and know the good spots to hit in tamarindo.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE for the first time of my life i’m doing a negative review Concerning the small troubles No refill shampoo and soap every day, we needed to ask it, no new bath towel everyday it stayed wet, A/C sounds like a truck in a room..... impossible to sleep with it, no one made the upstairs’s bed during my 3 days Concerning the BIG TROUBLE I let them know I stayed more time at tamarindo but not at this place !!! The morning’s check out I had to drop my friend at the airport. The day before I let her know. I wasn’t on time at 11:00, I had less a hour of late When I came back, I saw all my personal stuffs outside close to the hotel’s gate. Everyone could stole my passport, watch, sunglasses and suitcases ... I had no texts and no calls. My holiday could turn into nightmare “She told me you are late .... now check out done ...” No professional and so rude !!!! I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE There are a lot of heaven’s place in tamarindo but definitly not this one

    Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2018
