We stayed here for 8 nights. April 2017 The first night we had ants in our room. They came and sprayed. Which made things worse, when I went to take a shower and picked up a towel a cockroach fell out. We understand this hotel does not spray the grounds as to preserve the balance of nature. but I don't...

I have visited Costa Rica 7 times now. We go to different areas but always end up at Capitan Suizo! We love the beachfront bungalows. Everyone there is genuinely happy and helpful. The pool is perfect, food wonderful and beach beautiful! A truly amazing place!

Stayed here in August for my birthday. The hotel and grounds are lovely. We stayed in a bungalow and that was nice. The bathroom was a bit dated, but the room had everything one needed. Staff were friendly. The hotel is located about a mile and a half form the city center. A walk along the beach during the day...

Ultimately we decided on Tamarindo, Costa Rica due to recommendations from friends and after researching the area. The people are wonderful! Pura Vida!! Food and water is delicious,...

The perfect end to a coast-to-coast trip to Costa Rica. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was pricey but good so I would not eat here all the time. That said, the kids's portions are a good size so worth a try.

The service and the staff make this the experience of a lifetime. I went here on my honeymoon and they upgraded us to a bungalow. The beach was beautiful and the waves were great. We went fishing and the staff cooked our catch. It was the best fish I have ever had.

We absolutely loved Capitan Suizo. It's in a superb location at the southern end of Playa Tamarindo but nestled away in the trees. The staff here were superb, the food first class ( we both really loved the tuna special). The pool never overcrowded with close proximity to beach. Perhaps the highlight was the wildlife, the howler monkeys & the...

We loved our stay at Hotel Capitan Suizo last week! We had transportation from the airport made in advance by Jorge, who was very friendly & helpful. Check in was quick and easy. The grounds are beautiful, very well cared for, and the beachfront is spectacular (not busy at all)! Seeing monkeys, iguanas and friendly felines all over doesn't hurt...

The staff is delightful, from check-in, to the concierge and restaurant, to the daily maid service. The grounds are scrumptious... lush and full of life. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow and loved it.... beautiful view, monkeys in the trees, private, plenty of space, couldn't ask for more. My husband surfed every day, and we walked the beach a couple...
