    The staff were friendly and everything was perfect. Small hotel/resort made the experience intimate, beautiful gardens and pool with lots of wildlife like iguanas and monkeys to see. Beach access with free body boards to use and inexpensive surf board rental. Food and service was great. Would happily return and warmly recommend.

    This is a hotel in a class on its own! (I stay in at least 15 hotels per year for both leisure and business travel.) Nestled in a beautiful tropical garden on the far end of a beautiful beach, it's a setting that invites to relaxation. It feels like you sleep in the nature, hearing the birds and the howler monkey (who may wake up you at 6 am but it's fine since you wake up rested!). The staff is impressive: The Assistant Manager Isabel greets you every morning and checks on your needs, gives you information and good tips for the surroundings. The food is excellent. From the fresh ceviche to the tasty Quinoa salad or the Pulpo y camarones.., Yummy. Everything we tried was excellent!, Michelle, Ivania, Marisela, and all their colleagues are making your meals experience enjoyable and relaxing. They are professional and friendly, They all seem so happy to work for the hotel. The couple owning this hotel does an amazing job! You can feel the love and the passion for what they do! We will go back! Pura Vida!

    We want to come back annually!

    Convenient location for the beach, close walk to town, and a lovely pool. The glass wall/ door to our room opened up to a view making you feel like you have your own jungle. We loved the monkeys, iguanas, squirrels, and other critters on the perfectly manicured grounds. Everything was clean. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The breakfast was bountiful and delicious.

    Favorite Hotel in Costa Rica

    Beautiful setting right on the Tamarindo beach with lush tropical gardens, sparkling clean pool, and very comfortable spacious rooms and bungalows. Located at the south end of the bay, the sea is calm and perfect for swimming and offers a dramatic panoramic view of the whole Tamarindo coastline. The property is meticulously maintained and the service outstanding. It was very hard to leave such a wonderful place.

    We stayed a week at the hotel, it was a spring break vacation. The weather, ocean, hotel location, beach area, garden, everything was amazing. Food was delicious with plenty of options. Staff members were friendly and ready to help. The only down point I can think of- my teenager daughter felt unwelcome at the yoga class and she left. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back!

    This hotel was at a great location near the southern part of the beach. Their cocktails were unique and delicious. The staff was attentive and helpful. I would stay there again. The only thing I didn't like was the lower level rooms, no privacy unless curtains are closed completely and then you are in a dark room. We asked to be moved to an upper room and was accommodated with the bell staff making the change for us with us only having to redo minimal packing. Very nice!
