Would have liked to had hotel on beach but this hotel was very nice. Not a lot of options for breakfast


Good location and very nice stuff. The pool wasn't good


what a perfect place!!!!


Our room was spacious, with high ceilings and tiles floors. The refrigerator contained minibar items, but there was still room for our food and beverages. The complimentary breakfasts were good, but not as good as Hotel Conchal. It appears that the hotel pays/subcontracts a couple of women to prepare it, and there was no variety from day-to-day. We did not eats dinner in the restaurant, but my wife had a dessert that was good. Francisco was very helpful, but the staff wasn't as warm and welcoming as the Hotel Conchal. The Iris is very convenient to a bank, grocery store and laundry service. We found several good restaurants in Tamarindo.


Although the restaurant had great reviews we didn't find it that great....had to pay cash....only open in the bar during the day. We enjoyed other restaurants down the road much more. Our room was quite small and occasionally we would have issues with water pressure and the A/C. On a positive note, the owner made his presence known and was quite a friendly guy.


We loved Hotel Arco Iris and would definitely return to stay here again. We loved that it was a little farther away from the coastline so it was quieter and hidden from the chaos of Tamarindo. The staff were very kind and the owner was wonderful. Breakfast was great and all of the staff were very friendly.
