Hotel Bula Bula

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, knowing that it was kind of secluded compared to other hotels near Tamarindo. This one is located in Playa Grande, which is part of a national park so dont experience all that buzz and crowds as in Tamarindo. The only downside of this is that the options for lunch and diner are more limited. If you want a quiet stay and a beach with few people around, pick this hotel.

Great hotel, great customer service and delicious food.

This hotel was great, I was there with my boyfriend enjoying a long weekend vacation and we enjoyed it a lot. Although the hotel is not close to Tamarindo (drive-wise), it is just a 25 min drive away. The best part of the hotel is its location in Playa Grande, which is very quiet and clean. If you want to avoid crowds, this is your option.

We loved our stay at Hotel Bula Bula! The owners were wonderful and all the staff was eager to help and were fun to talk to. The room is on the small side but very comfortable. I would recommend to anyone!

We had a great time and the staff was super-nice. It is a great place to get away from it all!!!

this place was fantastically peaceful. only a few rooms, so it feels like home. the staff were great, food is amazing.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Bula Bula for a week. It is 3 minutes walk from a wonderful and quite beach and it borders a nature preserve. The resturant is out of this world and the staff is genuine and nice. If you go, do not miss out on Asi's Tres Leches Cake -- we have never had better. This is a small boutique Hotel perfect for relaxing, which is what we did.
