    Great location, terrible service, road noise

    (I want to start by saying we thoroughly enjoy travel, especially these days, make the best of every situation and hardly ever leave reviews or complain but would've loved to know these things prior to our trip.) You couldn't find a better location in Tamarindo, right in the heart of town and the best part of the beach! Incredible sunsets!!! That said, the service in the bar/restaurant area was terrible. Bartender (only 1) wouldn't serve guests at the bar and with only 2 servers it took over 30 minutes to order food or anything to drink at any given time. They know how many people to anticipate based on bookings, as well, people are dying to work these days, there's no excuse for the poor service and short staff. The room, we stayed in an oceanview balcony room (3rd floor). Gorgeous view but road noise is terrible and constant from the main street it's located on. In addition, on our last morning, landscapers decided 7am was the ideal time to weed eat below our room for over an hour. The A/C even left on high all day, at the lowest setting couldn't cool the room. Overall, I'd probably stay there again mainly for the location. I'd recommend a ground floor oceanview room, road noise would be less. I just wouldn't eat/drink there or bring my own from a neighboring restaurant.

    Breakfast was good, but it was the same everyday. It would be nice to have more variety. Eat the same breakfast for 4 days straight. Did not have hot water. Hotel is beautiful. It was nice to have the beach right in front. Also, I sent an email days before to tell the hotel I was celebrating our anniversary, but I never got a reply nor my room had anything even though on the email I received to check in, it says to let the hotel know if we are celebrating something. I was disappointed.

    PURA VIDA!

    It was AMAZING! We had an ocean front first level room we could walk right out of and the beach, restaurant, pool everything was right there. The property was gorgeous! Staff was helpful and friendly but stayed out of your way. Room was basic, nothing special, but had the essentials. Bed was very hard. Unfortunately the beach wasn't private, it was public, and you had to rent beach loungers if you wanted to. Property is divided between the beach side and across street on mountain side. No adult only pool on main property at beach side and kids got kind of loud. Food was good. Property is smack in the middle of the town so walking distance to literally everything. We would DEFINITELY come stay here again!

    Stunning beach front property with panoramic views of the pacific ocean, mountains and Tamarindo jungle. Located in epicenter of beach bar scene with beautiful sunset performances. Families, boaters, surfers, farmers and beachgoers collide at the Diría. They upgraded us to the honeymoon villa and served a delicious breakfast of local fruits and platos típicos. Highly recommend.

    BEST location in Tamarindo

    Location, location, location! Diria is right in the middle of everything, and yet, set far enough off the beach to give privacy if you want it. We have stayed here before and will again. It's truly the best! Get a Sunset room and watch the magic every evening for the comfort of your terrace.

    Would return in a heartbeat

    We had a comfortable “pool view” room that actually faced the beach. The breakfast was great, the concierge very helpful and friendly, and the front desk staff was very welcoming. We thought the selections in the hotel’s main restaurant were a bit limited for dinner, but there are many restaurants in Tamarindo so this was not a big problem. The hotel is right on the best part of Tamarindo beach, and the swimming is excellent. The surfing area is very close also.

    The lobby was amazing, rooms were a little small and plain. For that kind of money I’d like the room to match the lobby. Location in Tamarindo was great and just a quick walk across the street to the adult pool

    The location is the only thing they have going for them. The customer service at the bars and restaurants were less then acceptable. The rooms have no noise insulation, you can hear everyone and their conversations when they walk past your door no matter the hour of the day or night is. The maids did a good job cleaning everyday, that was nice.

    Our stay was amazing! By far the best beachfront hotel in Tamarindo! Beautiful property, amazing and friendly staff, especially Charlie! Everything felt clean and safe. We were bummed the large pool was under construction but gave us a reason to return in the future!
