“A great condo - just outside of town”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The staff of RPM was fantastic! They answered all of our questions asap when I was researching the condo. It's a beautiful stand alone home. The condo is large with very high quality appliances, kitchen gadgets, quality features, great cozy furniture and cool outdoor showers. The pool is beautiful and you can open up the wooden doors to have an open feeling to the pool. Carmen the housekeeper was very nice.

A walk into the town of Langosta is a must. Cala Luna is a great hotel to see with a good restaurant.

The condo lost water for part of 2 of the days we stayed there. The first time it happened during the day and the staff at RPM was on top top of the issue and it was fixed quickly. The second time it happened in the middle of the night and it was still not working in the morning on the day we left. I recommend you fill the pitchers with water and keep them in the fridge in case the water goes out so you'll always have drinking water.

RPM was also on top of a situation when power to the TV and wireless went out and we had no access to the power box that just needed to be switched. They sent someone over within 2 hours to take care of it.

RPM was also on top of the situation when the neighbors alarm went off in the middle of the night. We called and they said they contacted the guard and to leave our lights on downstairs at night. Even though the condo is on a gated community, anyone can still access the community via the beach. I never felt totally safe there and I slept with my door locked at night.. I could hear people talking on the street under the master bedroom (either a guard or taxi's picking people up for early flights) often around 4 and 5 am. I was woken up often with weird noises, slamming doors and talking, so I did not sleep well.

When I booked this, I thought it was in town based on the map on the TripAdvisor listing . They need to do a better job of managing expectations and providing a map with the exact locations where you need to pick up keys (that was a pain without a car) and how to find the condo (they only provided a map after I asked for one). As you walk into town, its on a very dusty, rocky and sometimes muddy road with no sidewalks. You'll need to wear good shoes and have a strong flashlight at night to find your way back. (The town is working on paving the roads) RPM also needs to be more clear on how to find the beach access from the condo - it is not easy to find. The beach is the best way to walk to town... but only during daylight and not during high tide. (You'll need footwear as part of the walk is over rock) You can walk back to the condo as far as Capitian Suizo during high tide, and take the road from there.

Make sure the condo has a can of Raid. We spend a lot of time spraying ant trials in the kitchen and living room. Bring small garbage bags so you can quickly throw out anything containing food each day. When they where there fixing the TV power they sprayed for us and that helped.

Walter's, a fish and cheese market across the street is the best place to buy wine and seafood to cook at the condo. They will give you everything you need to prepare your meal. The owners are fantastic and very friendly.

The Langosta beach club membership included with the rental was fabulous. We hung out there everyday. Used the gym, rented SUPs and had a surf lesson from Nicholas and Michele. The staff there is awesome.

Based on the issues with water, ants, location and noise, I still recommend this condo very strongly. It's a beautiful home. In conclusion, just come prepared per my recommendations.

Casa Colibri 2 and the staff of RPM far exceeded our expectations! The condo is roomier even than the photos indicate and of a very high quality. The kitchen was modern and equipped with high end appliances and even had a water filter system so we didn't have to buy bottled water. All the living areas were roomy and comfortable, clean and we all liked the designer showers. Langosta beach club, membership included with the rental, welcomed us readily and was a great setting since Colibri is not beach front property. It was only 12 minute walk to town or easily by taxi $5. We found we much preferred the independence of this rental rather than being confined to one large resort. Lola, of RPM, answered all our questions prior to arrival with speed and clarity and once there, booked 6 excursions for us that were exceptional! We had visited with agencies on the main streets of Tamarindo, but Lola knows the local trips and guides and all her recommendations for us were fantastic, authentic, expert and very reasonably priced. We will return to this area and use RPM properties again. If we could give more than 5 stars, we would! Book with them with confidence! Cindy of Anchorage, Alaska
