  • 6.0.Good

    This hotel is not beach front, you need to cross a street and exit the hotel to get to the beach. There are no lounge chairs or anything at the beach for you to sit and relax. There is 1 pool no jacuzzi and I don’t believe it should be called a boutique hotel but more of a Airbnb.

    A beautiful resort nestled in beautiful vegetation giving the feeling of a slight jungle experience. This becomes even more true when a monkey or two show up as you are swimming or sun bathing. Food was tasty, service courtious and rooms clean. Highly recommended!!!

    Enjoyable stay in Playa Langosta

    My husband and I stayed at Cala Luna for four nights in February and had a great experience there. We enjoyed the boutique nature of the hotel and while all the rooms were full, it never felt overwhelming or like there were too many people around. While it is situated on the beach, it’s very rocky and not really swimmable, however, there is a complementary happy hour every night during sunset. We went to Playa Tamarindo to surf (Cala Luna offers lessons for $50 pp) and Playa Avellanos for relaxation (highly recommend). We also spent time at Cala Luna’s pool, which was refreshing and we never had trouble getting chairs. The food was great – wonderful breakfast buffet (included in our stay) and lots of fresh, healthy options for lunch and dinner. The fish cooked in papaya curry was particularly good. The service went above and beyond – the entire staff was friendly and hospitable and the front desk was helpful with suggestions and arranging taxis into town when we didn’t feel like walking. We also took advantage of the complementary yoga and workout classes, which were a nice offer and helped break up all the sitting around and drinking! The only downside to Cala Luna was the beds, particularly the pillows which we found to be really lumpy and the bedding which was a little too light when you have the A/C on. Kind of disappointing to pay $300+/night and not get great sleep, but all in all we still had a good time here and would recommend to anyone looking for a boutique hotel e

    Amazing Tamarindo hotel

    Beautiful Hotel, well-maintained property and friendly staff. We had a deluxe room which felt more like a mini villa and very private. The hotel was just on the other side of the Tamarindo beach point, which for us was a bonus as we wanted to feel close to the Tamarindo strip/beach hustle but still far enough from it to feel secluded. You can walk to the beach from here but it's a bit of a hike, we had a car or I would consider the local golf cart rentals etc.. hotel offered a discount taxi service too in addition to free bicycles.. lots of options would 100% stay here again.

    An impressive option for your Tamarindo stay

    Our stay was extremely pleasurable and the staff is very friendly. The food and beverages were excellent and the included buffet was very satisfying. I would recommend a bike or cart rental to get back and forth from the main Tamarindo area as the walk is quite difficult especially during the mid day heat. As a quiet, relaxing base to come back to after enjoying the many activities this area of Costa Rica has to offer, I can recommend no better.

    Excellent Stay

    Everyone was amazing. Nice secluded area of beach perfect for sunset. Great photo shoot area. Breakfast was great. We are on our honeymoon and we were given a bottle of champagne on the house with some cut fruit. A short walk from downtown Tamarindo.

    Cala Luna boutique hotel is very beautiful and right at the beach. Staff were very nice and friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay here however the restaurants inside the hotel should expand their food choices because there aren’t a lot of variety. Other than that this is a beautiful hotel to stay in.
