Amazing hotel with even better staff and guest to share it with. Could not have asked for a better place to stay for my first time in Costa Rica. For 2 girls traveling alone in a new place we felt extremely safe and taken care of. There was always someone around to answer questions and help us. Would highly recommend to everyone to stay at this hotel.

Couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Amazing location right on the water! TJ the owner and Seven were so sweet and accomodating. TJ even brought me dark chocolate after hearing about my hunt for it lol! The room was so clean and comfortable and I was able to cook all of my meals in the outdoor kitchen. Theres tons of restaurants close by but i enjoy making my own food. There are Massages, nail spa, and surf lessons right there on site! Plus a travel coordinator if you need to book an excursion or taxi anywhere. This was such a fun and perfect place to stay! I will definitely be back and highly recommend to anyone!!

We enjoyed our time here very much! The staff and other guests were warm and friendly. The rooms were clean and air conditioned. Best bet on the beach for surfing (especially if you are looking for lessons). Continental breakfast was perfect with plenty of fresh fruit, banana bread, cinnamon rolls and lots of fresh coffee. This place reminded me of hanging out in the backyard with friends. Don't pass up an opportunity to stay here.

Hotel Villa Amarilla was the absolute best hotel experience I've ever had. TJ and Cinde could not have been any nicer or more accommodating and I truly did feel like family by the time I left. The location is right on the beach and walking distance to everything in Tamarindo, the rooms are super clean and comfortable and the hotel grounds are beautiful and a great place to kick back and relax. I will definitely return next year!

You're on the beach. You're at the beginning of town. Breakfast with FRESH fruit, muffins, banana bread and coffee. Tour company on premise. Massage therapists on premise. I will stay here again. Enough said.
