It felt like a little, warm, fun community....management...

The restaurant is very nice and all the people who work there are...

Me and my friend checked out a few different cabinas in downtown Tamarindo and none were at the standard of quality and cleanliness that Vista Villas gaves us. The staff were all friendly. Yesenia kept our rooms very clean and the hotel responded to our guest needs very fast. Would definelty go back there.
