    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

    Highly recommend staying here
    Great hotel in the heart of Tamarindo. Superb staff and very nice owner who are all very helpful and go the extra mile. Highly recommend staying here! We loved itBook the turtle nesting tour with their guide, he was super knowledgeable and taking care that the turtles have their time to make the nest vs. other guides that night were impatient and didn’t care much and almost scared off the turtle.
    Kathrin, us2 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    Nice place close to beach & town / credit card fee
    Pros- Very friendly reception welcome and advice Central location (close to beach and downtown Nice balcony / patio and reception area Rooms are clean and modern Cons- Charges an addition 11% on top of the confirmed rate for using a credit card. This should absolutely be disclosed upfront when booking. Rooms are on the small side

    In The Shade hotel Tamarindo - Excellent!
    Nice hotel close to all. Would be nice if they had a pool but overall great stay!
    Richard, us5 night romance trip
    Very good 8.0
    We enjoyed our stay at Hotel in the Shade. The room was sufficient, we appreciated the air conditioner and the fridge was nice to store waters and snacks for our beach day. The staff is super nice and the breakfast was particularly great - not only delicious, but healthy. The location is also good (5-10 min walk to beach). Note that they charge a fee for paying with credit card so be sure to bring enough cash with you for your stay. We did have a few ants in our room which was probably because the windows were left open before our check-in, but we understand that happens in Costa Rica as we had this problem at multiple hotels in the country.

    Very good
    Great little spot close to everything. The ladies were friendly and helpful with good recommendations. Breakfast at the Garden cafe was very good. WiFi wasn’t so good which was an inconvenience because we had some work to do. But otherwise, a great hotel.
