Good 6.0
Good place, great location
Location and place was nice. The beach is right across the street. The pool area and bar is great and the staff is really nice and accommodating. The food is terrible at the restaurant. We had dinner there once and breakfast once. The party that gies every friday is obnoxious and you'll never get one of the free drinks you're supposed to get because it is packed. I think every local in town was there. It turns into a night club just so you know. We thought we would be hanging out drinking with other guests and having a few free drinks on the house. Not the case. We had to leave so we coukd go get a drink elsewhere. Bummer. We would probably stay there again but would avoid friday night if at all possible.

Good location in Tamarindo
Best Western is an older establishment, but very clean and the staff is excellent; always helpful and smiling. Breakfast was included and it was made-to-order and good. Bar/restaurant had good food and drink. Pool was lovely. Would recommend trying to book rooms 200s or 300s to get an ocean view. Beach is just across the road and numerous restaurants line the road to town. Town is about a 15 walk.

Don’t Do It!
First - this is the first review I have ever left in my life. I am a 40 years old. The hotel’s representative photos and property descriptions are totally off base and misleading. The hotel is old, run down, not well kept, and ocean front is a joke unless you consider hearing the ocean and seeing peaks of it through trees across the street from a busy street ocean front. There were bugs in our bed, the patio door did not lock (which they unsuccessfully tried to fix), the rooms are not all as pictured, and the front office staff person was rude. I actually live in Tamarindo, but wanted a quick night getaway with my fiancé while family watched my children. This was the last place with availability on a holiday week, and now I know why. NEVER AGAIN!

Loved the pool, & location
Andrea, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Beautiful more modern hotel for Tamarindo. Location is close to beach, 5-10 min walk to the main bars/restaurants. Lots of stairs to get up to room. Reasonable price no fridge or microwave in room made the stay here a bit more expensive and less convenient. No heating up leftovers or keeping a 6-pack of beer cold. I have stayed at many Tamarindo hotels and give this one a 8/10. For travelers that like the more modern places, this may be best value around.

Poor 2.0
The whole property was dirty. The pool was freezing. The food was terrible. Somehow I got a skunk in my room at 430am and had to evacuate the room with my two kids and wife. I then had to try and get the skunk out myself as there was no one at the front desk with any brains. I decided to check out a day early because the beds are so hard it was killing my back. Do not use this hotel. I’ve traveled a lot and stayed in many hotels. But this one was the worst.
