Our room had a great view. Staff not the most friendly. Did not give any details about the hotel, what they provide or maps other than their towel policy. Gave 4 beach towels with a towel card. Didn't inform you that towel place close at 6 pm so when we came from the beach with soaked towels at 6:02 pm...

My husband and I have just returned from another great trip to the Tamarindo Diria. We have been coming here for many years now and have always had a wonderful experience whether it be "in season" or "off season". We enjoy the convenient location, seeing the beautiful grounds, and the friendly staff. We now prefer to stay across the road...

Not very impressed. I am a well seasoned traveler all over the country and have never experienced such unfriendly people as there is on this property. They have no customer service skills. Our first night we needed an extra pillow and we found only 2 towel sets to the room. We asked for a few more towels. It took 4...

3rd floor room, no elevator. Rooms are tiny. Bathroom, water flow in the shower is non-existent, the shower also is very slow to drain. The beach right in front is a little rocky, however head towards the right...and it's better. It is a public beach so be prepared for (many many) people selling their wares on the beach. Breakfast is...

Great hotel, clean room and beautiful view. I love that you can see monkeys on the trees and iguanas roaming around on the hotel grounds. To be honest I was a little scared at first to see the huge iguana just posing on the grass, but after that first encounter I felt better. Love the breakfast area right by the...

The location is great and good for families. Overall the staff was not very friendly. A few were friendly and said hello but most didn't seem interested. You do have to cross the busy and noisy street to get to the rooms by the main pool. The rooms in the 600's or 700's have a view of the dumpster and...

I don't think we would have stayed anywhere else, I just wish the oceanfront rooms had more comfortable beds and pillows (we didn't sleep well) or that the price was more in keeping with these rooms. The location is the best in Tamarindo. The resort is very peaceful and friendly. The service was excellent. We liked that we could charge...

It was our 6th trip to Costa Rica during last 11 years, and third trip of them to Guanacaste. We always stay in Tamarindo Diria hotel, because the location is unbeatable. Unfortunately for last 11 years rooms in beachfront buildings never been updated, even though hotel itself expanded a lot. Furniture in the rooms ( we have 2 beachfront rooms)...

This resort is quite large and spans both sides of the main street in Tamarindo. A crossing guard is always there to help guests (wristbands ID them) get across the busy main road. There are beach side units and other units across the street that surround the main pool (lagoon rooms) and the adult pool. They also have towers with...

My family and I just returned from our brief visit to the Hotel Tamarindo Diria. While overall the hotel is lovely it is clearly in need of some improvements. We booked two ocean view rooms. Unless you want a room that is literally next to the bar and restaurant with a limited view of the ocean stay away from Room...
