4/10 Fair

Basic in every way
. It’s still one of the least inspiring properties in one of the most beautiful places. Hotel has no concept of general confort . Upon entering, you’ll be greeted with a cacophony of sounds. Bands blasting in one ear and “lounge-ish” beats competing in lobby while you wait in a line to check in at a 4 kiosk desk with one attendant ( every time). Get your wristband and head on over to the feed hall. This is one of the most generic places I’ve ever been to in my life.

Tamarindo, A Great Place filled with Bad Ideas.
Average at best with pedestrian cruise ship vibes. Unless you know for sure that the river mouth is pumping, steer clear of this very basic, uninspiring dead end.

Great price to service value . All was perfect and the employees are really great. All 3 restaurants on site could see some improvements. The Japanese grill is lacking real Tapanyaki Chefs. The Italian restaurant has great food but a good pizza chef wouldnt hurt. The general restaurant and breakfast... yet great breakfast the leftovers are served throughout the day pool side, which by 2 hours into your pool day it becomes a soggy whatever.

We did not get our room cleaned. We had to ask for towels. Not too many English speaking help. The Tepanyaki was not what we expected. No one explained that we could substitute sushi’s for the tepanyaki. The buffets were good, but a variety would have been good.

6/10 Good

The property grounds were nice, gardens were kept neat. The rooms were very outdated and the shower didn’t drain properly. The pool was always dirty and never skimmed of its bugs or leaves. The buffet has very limited food options. We stayed for almost a week and had the same food every day. The food was flavorless and boring. The Japanese restaurant was decent and the cook did a nice job cooking for us. The Italian restaurant was awful. The food was flavorless and I had a dead fly in my meal. The staff caters to its Mexican and South American visitors. Staff was not friendly or approachable. There was only one waitress in the main buffet who was friendly and one lady in the main reception area. Her name was Jusy and she was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. This Occidental location doesn’t live up to the name, unfortunately.

It was a great experience at this resort. Morning and afternoon activities by the pool, nice live music in the lobby by and theater shows and games every night. The two restaurant this resort has are great. Italian and Japanese. The beach are great for surfing but difficult for swimming. The cleanliness which is the most important is amazing and definitely we re coming back to this beautiful resort.
