    Fabulous 8.8 From 104 reviews

    Very good 8.0
    Good accommodation and close to Tamarindo down a dirt road. Hard to find the first time. Main issue was construction work being undertaken on the site that will last for at least another 6-8 months. Very noisy in the morning they start officially at 8.00 but are there from 6.00 am. Good for one night.

    Good hotel - major building works going on which we were not aware off. Room was comfortable and location is close to town, but down a dirt road and was a little difficult to find initially. The host was helpful and we were made to feel welcome.

    Room was comfortable and quiet, even though outside there was music, you couldn't hear a thing inside the room. Small and cozy, perfect for a quick get away for young couples, but not to stay in all day. The hotel is basic, although very comfortable and a nice pool, but the restaurant and staff is not present. There's no front desk, just the manager that gives you her phone number in case you need anything. She was nice and helpful, but the whole dynamic seemed like a self-service type of hotel. Not sure if it was because of the whole COVID-19 siatuation or not. I have no complaints, the hotel is very centric and you can walk to Tamarindo downtown to all the restaurants, bars and the beach. There's a pharmacy, supermarket, bank and ATM very close by too, so location is very convenient. Recommended for a budget quick get away to Tamarindo!

    Victor and his wife own the property and they were super friendly and terrific hosts. The room was clean and well appointed with huge TV and large shower. It was an excellent experience. Only thing is they do have 2 young children so don't expect a total child free environment.

    New and.clean. The staff was very attentive to keeping the place clean. They had construction in the parking lot and it rattled the hotel wuite a bit, so it was hars to sleep.or concentrate.

    Poor 2.0
    DISGUSTING treatment overall
    Overal stay very disappointing, the first part of my stay my shower wasn’t working at all and only a drip of water. The staff are only there until 4-5pm and I booked my taxi in the morning just before 11.40am only waiting over an an hour and a half to leave made me loose my flight costing me 2.5k to get home back to London !!!!!!!!! Absolutely fuming ! NEVER AGAIN would I stay here

    Very good 8.0
    We were greeted by friendly staff by the pool upon arrival and the check in process was easy. Reminder: the reservation on Expedia is only a hold, you must pay cash or you’ll get charged an 11% credit card fee. We’d forgotten this but she said we could go get cash and pay the next day so that was nice, there’s a bank nearby where you can withdrawal cash. There were a few ants in the room, but somewhat to be expected in Costa Rica. The walls are thin, you can hear conversations from the pool and there was a restaurant behind our room that we could also hear the kids running around/yelling. They have filtered water available to refill bottles, which is a bonus! We didn’t eat at the cafe but the coffee was good. Easy 2ish blocks walk to the beach and they did provide pool/beach towels. The pool was really nice, too!
