Great location for walking around town, yet the setting definitely feels remote and as if in a more rural area. Breakfast was good as well.
We were told our room was “upgraded” due to rain. While I do not doubt whether our room was nicer than the one previously booked, we were literally sleeping on a 1inch pad on top of a box spring. While I did not expect a crazy fancy mattress, I find it unacceptable that a hotel charging that much per night would have such a terrible mattress situation. It’s time to upgrade the beds if the hotel wants anyone to return.
We loved this hotel! Small and friendly; it felt personal. Breakfast could have been better, but ok for the price. In our stay there were to small conserts at the bar area, which added to our experience.
This hotel was very comfortable and beautiful. I loved our room and highly recommend staying here in the future! The breakfast was limited because it wasn't a buffet style, but they have a rotating menu and the fruits are very fresh. There were monkeys above our oasis every morning and the hotel was located conveniently to the beach and town of Tamarindo. I miss it so much!
Room small but pool area well shaded which was great in the heat at Tamarindo
Nice rooms, great location, friendly and helpful staff.
Hotel manager was very friendly. Upgraded us to a superior room upon our arrival.
It seemed more like a budget hotel, but was comfortable for the most part.
Great spot, Not to big. A very short walk to the restaurants and the beach. Great swimming pool and music one night. Very friendly staff.
