The 1Br with living room was perfect - a good amount of space (we stayed 8 days). Good location, very central. We were there during a very busy time (New Year's) and there is no escaping the noise that time of year, but the room was quieter as the town got quieter. The AC was great and all the room amenities worked well.

We LOVED the daily breakfast, the variety of the menu, the friendliness of the staff. I was great to have something fresh and cooked just for us at the start of every day.

The bed was comfortable too! Lastly - their advice about where to go to eat, drink, relax, hit the beach - all of it was top notch. Definitely go with their suggestions if you visit Tamarindo.

Beach is a very short (2-3 min) walk - and it is a lovely beach.

We stayed 5 nights in this Hotel. We were very satisfied with our time here. It was around 100$ a night, don’t expect a luxury Hotel, this place is rather relax and cozy.

Pros: Excellent cleaning standards, our room was cleaned every day, AC and comfortable bed. Fridges to store water or food and big clean bathroom. The pool is great to refresh and has a little beach sand area. Wifi was working great. Reception staff were very friendly and it’s only 5 minutes walk to the beach and in a center location for restaurants, bars and supermarket. It’s also very quiet at night something we really appreciate!

Cons: Breakfast food is great and the kitchen staff are very welcoming. However, they tend to run out of food or forget to serve certain ingredients. This is the result of poor management as the staff should be familiar with the amount of guests in the Hotel and buy enough ingredients in function of their diets (a big supermarket is right in front of the hotel) or they could compensate with bigger portions.

But overall, we absolutely recommend this place for family and couples!

We found this place by sheer luck after we had already experienced a 2-night (or should I say a 2-nightMARE) stay in a nearby hotel, and we were SO glad we were able to move!
From the moment we walked into Ten North, we were treated like family.....or even better, like good friends! The front desk personnel bent over backwards to assist us in any way they could, and we felt so welcome every one of the 6 days we spent with them. Our Tamarindo trip was at the tail end of "shoulder season", so the rate for our 2-bedroom apartment with living room and full kitchen was only $102 per night. We stayed in unit #1, and I highly recommend you request that unit if you go. It is on the ground floor with a nice big table, sofa, and drying rack (for our constantly wet swimsuits) on the large patio. We were also just in front of the "sand pit" lounging area and adjacent to the pool.
I was continually amazed at the care taken by each member of the staff in everything they did. The pool guy was up at the crack of dawn cleaning the pool, raking the sand pit, and cleaning out the footbath......which was an ingenious way of keeping sand out of the pool and out of our rooms. Our rooms were also immaculate and cleaned by the housekeeping staff every day.
Breakfast was included with the stay, and we awoke every morning to our patio table fully set with placemats, tableware and appropriate condiments set out. Coffee was always ready by 6:00 AM, and breakfast was served whenever we were ready for it. The food was delicious and we loved the Costa Rican condiments on our omelettes.....which were made to order. The bread for toast and French toast came from a local bakery 2 doors down, and the butter tasted like it was churned moments before. There was also a fresh fruit smoothie included for each of us every day. My only complaint is that it was way too much food, so I could never finish breakfast.
There is a great local market directly across the street, so we stocked up on liquor, local mandarin limes, and lunch snacks for the week. It was nice to be able to come back to the room for lunch and a dip in the pool if we in town during the hot period of the day.
The location of Ten North is also absolutely perfect. It is in the middle of Tamarindo and only a 1-minute walk to the beach. However, it is far enough off the main drag and away from the surfer hostels, that it is very quiet at night. We could easily go to the action, but we could also easily sleep on the nights we went to bed early after a long day of hiking.
I could go on and on about this place, but suffice it to say that you will be well taken care of by the remarkable people at this lovely hotel. It is THE place to stay in Tamarindo!

Room tip: The #1 unit is perfect, but the entire hotel is quiet, and every room faces the pool.

This boutique hotel is located off the main street so you can be in the middle of the action during the day, and enjoy a quiet night as well.
Warm welcome by the lady in charge, lots of information and tips.
Our apartment with balcony is on the upper floor, over the swimming pool (better in my mind than the lower level directly around the pool where you have much less privacy).
Breakfast is essentially a plate cooked to order, and virtually changes every day. Excellent, but could be more generous (with your omelette just one toast, with your huevos rancheros just half a quarter of a pineapple slice).
Very poor wifi during our 3 day stay.... "the operator will fix it soon".
Comfortable, and reasonable price for Tamarindo.

Thanks so much for coming to stay with us! We're so glad that you enjoyed our recommendations and convenient location and your upper level apartment with balcony. We're glad you enjoyed breakfast, and our staff is always happy to bring additional toast or fruit for our guests. The wifi in Tamarindo isn't always the best, and we apologize for that, but we do have the very best service that is available to us. Wishing you happy holidays and a fabulous new year!
