    The staff are very friendly and helpful. The internet is on and off. When you phone they must reboot because it will come back on. The hotel needs an tender love and care. I would stay again if the price was right.

    Very disappointed

    Stayed for 2 nights at B.W. Room was dingy had no view, except pathway at back of Hotel. Housekeeping did not clean after the first night. Bed was not very comfortable. Had a coffee machine in the room , but no coffee. Requested receptionist to have staff bring some fresh towels including a face towel...didn't happen. Was told that housekeeping staff worked until 4 pm. I left my room at 3 pm and housekeeping staff were cleaning the next room, so they seen me leave. Don't think I would stay again.

    We really appreciated the location of the property. It was very close to the beach and downtown Tamarindo. The pool was also very nice! However, we were disappointed with the general condition of the property. Renovations are needed. Note that on Fridays, they host partys opened to everyone. Our room was right next to the party... We did not sleep until it was done at 2:30am...

    I booked this trip back in December of 2018. When I got to the hotel they said the room is not available. I had to wait for them to figure something out. In the end I had to change rooms the second day. The rooms are full of ants. No elevator, lots and lots of walking around.

    We had a poor experience with our luggage. When our bag was transferred from reception to our room, it was severely damaged. It was a brand new bag which had been dragged over stones and gravel. The bag was torn in numerous places and some of the contents were destroyed. It took several frustrating attempts to contact any sort of supervisory personel!! Finally after three days of trying to speak to someone in charge I was offered some virtually worthless BEST WESTERN points as compensation. I have been a loyal BW customer for close to 40 years!! This left me disappointed big time!! DO NOT STAY AT BEST WESTERN VISTA VILLE TAMARINDO!!

    Ok place to stay

    It was difficult to communicate with the restaurant servers Service was not good in restaurant Food less than satisfactory for all meals Reception service was great Disappointed in location from beach Great view from the balcony Walking from the reception which is located at the gate/street and you had to lug your luggage up over a couple of gravel areas and steep hill You were exhausted by the time you got to your room Certainly make sure you don’t need to return to your room when you leave for the day until it’s time to go to bed

    The rooms were hard to walk around a bed that is in the middle of the room, there was no fridge in room that for example: some people with meds that need to be refrigerated had to use the restaurant fridge. Dishes were hand washed and you had to wait for utensils at breakfast. No actual reception area that was on the main floor of the hotel! We had to bring our luggage up a gravel road to room

    Unfortunately our stay was not as good as expected. When we arrived fairly late in the day, the guy working the front desk was unable to show us to our room as he didn't know where it was. Our room was located in the newest (and still under construction) portion of the hotel. This meant that there was loud work going on all throughout the day and doors being sanded right outside our room. Our room door did not close and lock at all, and able to be pushed open despite the fact we thought it was closed. We didn't figure this out until day 3 that we had been leaving our door essentially unlocked every time we left. No in-room safes meant that all our valuables were left unprotected. Once notified, the maintenance guy was able to fix in minutes. A few issues with room cleaning. At 5 pm one day, I had to go search for someone who told us our room would be "next". Towels seem to disappear each morning and then don't reappear until late in the day, so if you need to take a shower during the day, there are no towels. A few times, there was no water available with no warning from the hotel that they were shutting it off. Our group waited twice in the bar to be waited on. Once we just left to go to another place, and the 2nd time was at the swim-up bar, so we waited a good 10 minutes to be served as the bar staff chatted to each other. Ladies night on Friday is very loud & despite making earplugs available, the party lasts until 2:30 a.m. which makes for a long night :

    Tamarindo Best western

    Andy the front desk guy definitely deserves a raise as well as the head housekeeping lady. I had an issue with my original room and as far as I’m concerned they both went above and beyond to remedy my concern. The only thing that should be addressed is the beds in the rooms, as they make a lot of noise when you move.
