Set on a hillside overlooking Tamarindo Bay and the Pacific Ocean, the Espendor Hotel offers guests a stylish and modern boutique hotel. The views from the hotel are spectacular, especially as the sun sets over the Pacific. The Esplendor is also the newest hotel in town so that guests can expect more modern amenities and a fresh approach. Hotel amenities include sweeping ocean views, access to Langosta Beach Club, free scheduled shuttles to town and the beach club, buffet breakfast, restaurant and bar, swimming pool and pool bar, fitness room, solarium, spa and wellness center, and free WiFi.
Tamarindo is a fun little seaside village with a gorgeous beach area and plenty of amenities. Small shops and restaurants line the streets, and there is plenty of nightlife. The beach has several distinct areas, some are perfect for boogie boarding and swimming, while other locations are better for surfing. The atmosphere is free-spirited and fun!
Getting to town or the beach is made easier by the hotel's shuttle service. It departs and returns on a set schedule. Guests of the Esplendor Tamarindo Hotel also enjoy complimentary access to the Langosta Beach Club and its amenities, including round-trip shuttle transfers. You can also walk to town or the beach, but it would likely take 20 or more minutes, depending on where you are going, and a considerable hike back up the hill to the hotel. Alternatively, taxis are affordable, available, and easy to coordinate with the staff's help.
Many tours and activities are available from Tamarindo. Surf lessons are available daily on the main beach, and of course, bigger waves can be found in Langosta and nearby Playa Grande. The Tamarindo Estuary is a beautiful place to go kayaking to see crocodiles, monkeys, and plenty of wildlife. Scuba diving can be fantastic off of the Catalinas Islands, or you can learn to scuba in one of the dive shop classes. A catamaran cruise will set the tone for a romantic vacation or just allow you to relax and enjoy the scenic Guanacaste coastline. If you are seeking more adventurous activities, check out a canopy zipline adventure or go on a full day of adventure near Rincon de la Vieja Volcano at one of the adventure ranches.
You don't have to leave the hotel to have a good time, in fact, spending time at the Esplendor Tamarindo can be quite enjoyable. The large infinity swimming pool has a swim up bar and offers incredible views of the Pacific Ocean. An outdoor relaxation area backs the pool with lounge chair stations with sun umbrellas. A spacious indoor lounge area with couches and fantastic views is behind the outdoor relaxation area. The fitness room is open daily, allowing you to keep up with your routine.
The hotel's spa offers a variety of relaxing services. Professional technicians offer a variety of treatments and massages to allow your mind and body to relax and enjoy a pura vida state of being.
Esplendor's Pura Vista Restaurant offers International and Costa Rican cuisine. Specialties include steak and fresh seafood. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating with ocean views and room service is available. We would also encourage you to check out some of the many dining options in town.
The only difference between the rooms at the Esplendor Hotel are the number of beds and floor they are located on. All rooms have a small private balcony and ocean views. The rooms also offer air-conditioning, cable TV, telephone, electronic safe, mini-refrigerator, bathroom with bathtub and hair dryer, and WiFi.
