2/10 Poor

Staff was awful. Never willing to help or assist. Had to wait for check in, very unprofessional staff, no amenities in the room, not even a place to hang the towels in the bathroom. Would never be back to that location or give them a good rating. I tipped everyone upon arrival and the housekeeping as well and was wanted money. A total disappointment

2/10 Poor

Had the worst experience at this Best Western. We checked into our room and found out that our patio door wouldn't lock. Front-office told us that they had no other rooms available and they sent someone to fix the lock. After 30 minutes of trying, they couldn't fix it so they offered us another room just for one night and we were asked to get out of that room by 8:00 am. The next morning we tried getting back into our original room but the lock wouldn't open and we were told that they had to reprogram the lock. After going back and forth with the front office, they finally allowed us to stay in another room for another night. This was a complete disaster. The breakfast was terrible as well. The oceanview room we received after this mess was good and the location of this hotel is good as well - a few minutes walk from the Tamarindo beach. I reached out to Expedia while we were dealing with all of this and Expedia wasn't any help at all which was bad on Expedia's part. Overall, we had a pretty bad experience and will most likely not use Expedia and Best Western.

Amazing View. Terrible breakfast
Beautiful location. Next to the beach’s bed all activity. Great property. The breakfast was terrible, both the omelette and the coffee was cold. They sued instant coffee, unforgivable. Left a bad taste. Staff was friendly
