    Great Staff.

    Staff were amazing. Truly amazing, but I wish they would have mentioned about the crocodile.

    Miguel, Erica, Cata, Carla, Jerel, Noel!!!! We already miss you so much. We arrived and immediately were taken back by the beauty and how cool this place is. It completely exceeded our expectations. Our bungalow was amazing. The drinks and food couldn't have been any better. The beach! I can't say enough. My wife and I went just the two of us but we are already planning our next visit with the kids and we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Thank you Ocho for making this the trip of a lifetime!

    Great spot!

    Great 5 night stay with family! Amazing views from the pool & beach! Easy access to beach, restaurants, shopping. Staff is super helpful! Ericka organized a private sailing trip for us as well getting a doctor to come directly to our bungalow for our COVID tests before returning home.

    Ocho was amazing beyond expectations. The photos of the bungalows do not do them justice. This is a lovely, low key place to stay. Close to all the action, but not in the middle of it. My 3 teenagers loved the proximity to the skate park.

    Great room, super friendly staff, fantastic location. We parked on-site in a gated lot. The room was clean and air conditioned. Beautiful pool with a magic view of the ocean. Just steps from the beach and all the places you could want in “downtown” Tamarindo. Bohemian vibes but first class service.

    Beautifully situated on the beach. The bungalows were a truest unique concept and something you should definitely consider for a true Costa Rican beach experience. The only complaint would be the bugs - there were a lot of mosquitoes, ants and flies that stuck around - even when fully doused in bug repellent.

    Loved the uniqueness of the Bungalows and the many small touches throughout. They're a good size and just a great escape from typical lodging. There is no TV in the Bungalows, so prepare for some time away from the world and enjoy the quaint zen feeling of them! They could use some TLC as they're showing some wear and tear (particularly the privacy curtains which showed mold in many of the creases). Would help the zen ambiance of the property if they cleaned up the marshes between the pool area and the beach. Parking was a PITA and quite limited. We had to park off to the side by the entry fence as there are only 4 spots in the secure area which isn't enough for the number of Bungalows and villas. Also felt they could clean up the back entrance from the lot. It's a mish mash of discarded equipment and construction debris. Once you get to the grounds they're quite nice and have a great feeling of zen, but getting to them from the beach or back entrance killed the vibe as you entered. Close to town and the beach (roughly a couple blocks walk either down the street or along the beach). Many dining options within a 15 minute walk, though in the evenings things are a bit seedy, so watch your backs carefully! Small but friendly staff. Overall a good value and quite unique property for the Tamarindo region.

    We had a great time at Ocho artisan bungalows. The owner is very kind and friendly! We highly recommend to book the yacht tour with captain Jan Louk!! You will have the chance to explore privets beach and to see the amazing sunset from the ocean. The best place to stay in Tamarindo!!
