Felt like a private oasis in the middle of Tamarindo. Beautiful quiet grounds and pool, with easy walking to amazing nightlife. Only complaint was no hairdryer as promised and staff didnt seem overly concerned or helpful to rectify. Also, they might need to improve integrity of sliding door lock and frame.

Pretty nice location just few walking minutes from the beach, nice staff, very old infrastructure but fine, pool and restaurant looks like the pictures.

10/10 Exceptional

Pretty, clean, unpretentious, and comfortable. Quiet and off the street, yet clubs and restaurants are next door. Five minutes to the beach. All rooms at ground level and have patios— feels like bungalows yet very private. Not all rooms have frig but the bar almost always open. Only quibble is no hangers.

The pool and surrounding gardens were beautiful and a nice break from the business of Tamarindo beach. Location was walkable to everything in Tamarindo and staff were always available for questions. Would stay here again when visiting Tamarindo!

The property is beautiful. It's like a little oasis in Tamarindo. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and there were some beautiful paintings for sale in the reception area which were painted by a local artist named Catalina.

10/10 Exceptional

The property is exactly as pictured - the pool and restaurant are tropical and fun. There's live music, but it's chill. If I need something more lively, the main stroll just a few minutes walking distance offers lots of restaurant, bar, cafe, and club options. We went to Breaking Bread - despite the cheesy name is very good and Dragonfly, which was also tasty. Really enjoyed the french fries at the bar, the front desk and security were really warm and welcoming - they also were able to accommodate my last minute early check-out with no problems. It was done while they were closed through their Whats App # in the room. The room decor is straightforward, the mattress is comfortable, but the pillow is a little lumpy. You may see a lizard or a spider, but I think that's to be expected - I think they wanted to enjoy the air conditioning, too.
