The room was beautifully clean and boho-chique minimalist. We loved the outdoor seating area too. We were so impressed how quiet it was too, despite being a pleasantly short walk from town. The place is about a 30 second stroll to the beach, right next to one of the surf spots. The couple in charge were so kind and lovely. We were extremely well looked after.

We had a great stay here, cannot compliment enough. We stayed here just as the covid-19 pandemic went into full mode, despite or concerns and worries Lisa and Nick whom we’re looking after mono loco, couldn’t have done more to help ease our nerves or concerns. These guys were simply put just awesome. It’s a short walk to the beach and a few minutes walk into centre. Breakfast cooked by Mitch also really good. Simply put if you want a place that feels like home with ppl that care but stills offers good location, this is it. Can’t shout out loud enough. Thank you guys. #staysafe we will return.

From the moment I arrived, the managers, Nick and Lisa were very attentative to my needs. Very knowledgeable of the area and all the local favorites. The grounds were beautifully maintained and very clean. My room was cleaned daily and very crisp and cozy and I had a great view of the beach right across the street. I especially looked forward to my daily sangria and dip in the pool. Oh, I can’t forget to mention breakfast... outstanding and a great value! Thanks Lisa, Nick, Hira and Maritiza for a lovely and relaxing 10 days!

Loved our mattress and two pillows each. The pool is big enough to cool off and refresh. A very friendly hotel with managers Nick and Lisa. We had #13 apartment and we were very comfortable. The other rooms are big too and are cleaned really well, every day. A true Tamarindo experience. Not a big resort and all the comforts of home. Hope to see you again in 2021!
