My first comment upon arrival was that it’s even more beautiful than the photos. The attention to detail, the small touches, the romantic icons, all create a unique and amazing experience. A lot of love and effort went into building Ocho Artisan Bungalows and it shows everywhere. The whimsical dream catchers hanging from the trees, the love signs that reflect the sun, the twinkling lights in the trees. It all creates a vibe and a mood that you are away from the rest of the world and in your own little paradise. Service was excellent. The staff are kind, friendly and treat you like family. They will book you a car, dinner reservations, tours, excursions, whatever you want. And you can trust you are getting the best deal and the best service. It was like no other experience I have ever had. I will return again and again. It was like coming home. Ilse and her staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Pia, Juan Carlos, Noel, Jade, all the bar and restaurant staff are truly amazing. As are the housekeeping staff. If you are looking for an amazing and unique vacation then look no further. Ocho Artisan Bungalows is a one of a kind place.

This is the Best place I’ve ever stayed at, it’s absolutely beautiful. It’s right on the beach and the experience of celebrating New Years Eve with the Costa Rica people was fantastic. The fireworks on the beach was the highlight of ringing in the New Year!

Fair 4.0
Good location...but underwhelming.
It was a good location on the beach but there were a significant amount of ants in our bungalow. Also, it was very loud late at night (music playing until 4 AM) with people camping on the beach next to the property. Really weird decor around the entire property.

Everything about our stay at Ocho Artisan Bungalows was great. The bungalow itself was beautiful. Ilse greeted us when we got there and the service was top-notch. You're only steps away from the beach but you feel so secluded when you're on the property. You'll be welcomed and pampered here, so if you're staying by the ocean, go to Ocho Artisan Bungalows and treat yourself!

We loved our stay at Ocho Artisan. The staff there was super attentive and did whatever they could to make our time in Tamarindo the best. The location was perfect for us ... walking distance to almost anything and ocean front! The free breakfast was amazing as were the sunsets! If we go back to Costa Rica, we will be staying at Ocho Artisan!
