Exceptional 10.0
We stayed in the private room. It was very clean and the A/C worked awesome. The walls are pretty thin so beware of excess noise from local restaurants and sports courts nearby, especially late at night. Staff was very helpful and nice, emails were always answered very quickly. If you're looking for a good place in Tamarindo, I'd recommend it!

This place was awesome. The private outside kitchen and yard was perfect for our needs and the hammock was an added touch. It was within walking distance of the beach, bars, groceries and bank. The owner was fabulous!

Location was good, close enough to the beach etc. but far enough to enjoy the quietness. In room fridge and communal kitchen was a plus.

On Point!!
My stay was a good one, it was close to everything by foot. I chose this spot to be out of the hustle and bustle of things and it was on point. The gates were always locked so I felt safe at all times. The help was wonderful, and if I needed anything they were on it. I would recommend and stay here again...

Cool place
Cindy was great, very helpfull and full of local information. The place was very clean and the staff very friendly. Definitely worth the price. Very close to town and shops/ restaurants yet away from the noise. I would recommend this place to anyone whos looking for simple, comfort and affordability. The air conditioning unit is really powerful. I'll be back.

A/C worked great, nice and quiet at night away from the main downtown, daily cleaning was appreciated. Appreciate the level of security (key to get into the hotel & in your room & for the safe in the room). No frills, but close and comfortable.

A friend and I stayed at the hotel for about one week. Our first night a scorpion had gotten in our room and that was quite a surprise! However, we did enjoy our stay. Hotel Mahayana was a small and simple space. Our room was cleaned daily, fresh linen & towels were given, and kitchen utilities were available to us during our stay. I like that the location was walking distance to the beach & market, as well as our other points of interest.
