We spent 2 weeks at the hotel. The hotel is about a 2 minute walk from the beautiful Playa Grande beach. The beach is a favourite spot or local surfers. At least 6 reasonably priced restaurants are within a 1 km distance for breakfast, lunch or dinner There are local tour operator kiosks that will pick up tourists in Playa Grande (just north of Tamarindo). Playa Grande is Hotel is located in a designated leatherback sea turtle sanctuary, and thus the area is very undisturbed. Weather was in the 90s and dry each day. We had rain on one night, which we were told was very unusual, as the west coast of Costa Rica is very dry in the winter season, We had a rental car, and therefore ventured out usually every other day to see various beaches along the coast. We were looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation. Playa Grande Hotel provided it. We spent some time wandering the beach daily, and watching the sunsets. Each evening, all the residents and tourists tend to walk down the road to watch the setting sun. We spent many afternoons lounging and reading by the pool. The pool was only 5 metres from our patio door. The pool area is spotless and quiet, surrounded by palm trees, flowers, vines. Birds frequently sit in the surrounding trees. The staff is small and very friendly. The room was cleaned spotlessly every day. Each day, we were given new beach towels. The hotel offers a good breakfast. We bought some food supplies and snacks for the refrigertor at a local store. The area is very secluded, and each night the stars were highly visible, This is not a night spot location. We met many tourists from the USA, Ireland, and Canada during our stay. Olga at the front desk was most helpful with any of of inquiries. Having a car was most helpful, because it is about a 30 minute drive to Tamarindo and and 90 minute drive to the Liberia airport. It is about a 5 hour drive to San Jose,

We stayed 6 nights in total in the villas at the Park Hotel and loved it. Our first 3 nights and our last 3 nights of our holiday. I could've stay forever! The villas are perfectly equipped for families, with cooking facilities and most everything one needs to be self sufficient. The pool is great and my kids loved the iguana who lived onsite. The staff are wonderful and very helpful. I'm only giving 4 stars because our last 3 nights we got the more run down villa in the far corner, where some of the furniture was old and needing replacing (sofa and outdoor table) They replaced the outdoor table upon request which at least wasn't going to fall apart while dining on it, but the sofa was pretty bad and had staples and sharp wood sticking out and it was old and covered with a sheet. Not really up to par for $200 CND a night. But, besides these rather small things, everything else was perfect! The best part about these villas was that you are steps from the beach and surf (main peak) The sunsets are absolutely amazing! Over all I highly recommend these villas for anyone who has a family and loves to be close to the waves and beach.

This hotel is run down! Not like the pictures! The coffee maker didn’t work, the WiFi was at one or two bars at best when working. For the price they are charging they can at least put new curtain rods instead of a makeshift PVC connector to connect a broken rod and it still droops and falls. We stayed in one of the Villas, there was no privacy as the curtains were also see through if you have lights on. The pool was nice and clean but not for children who cannot swim. The shallow end was almost 2meters/6 feet deep. For what’s around in the Playa Grande Tamarindo area this villa should not be even $100 a night. Other places for the same price are all updated with modern appliances and furniture, with washer and dryers included. The plus side is the staff is kind professional and they try to please you.

Booked 2 bedroom villa. We were assuming our villa would be in a different location. We were in a villa located down the road from check in. It was ok though bc we were closer to the beach. Girl at reception desk spoke little to no English but she was very sweet. Our villa was nice and clean. The bathroom door fell off but was fixed without asking when cleaned the following day. Close to beach and nice(chilly) pool.
