Hotel Playa Negra

Great family surf spot!

Awesome private bungalowsbthat are legit little houses. So no bugs or rain gets in. There are so great and well designed! Hot water too! No AC but a nice ceiling fan to keep you cool. The property is great with lots of monkeys, iguanas and dogs to keep kids happy. The restaurant is nice and the food is good but a bit pricy. It's better than a 30 minute drive in a dirt road three times a day! So it's worth the added convenience pricing. The surf break is a bit shallow in the rocks, so not for beginners. But a short walk south has a softer sandy break for kids or beginners. We loved our stay here!

Best Western Tamarindo Vista Villas

Good location with great employees

When booking the room we were looking for the location (close to beach) and basic room amenities. Pool for us was a bonus. We were looking to save money on lodging so we could do more adventures. It was a good balance. Pros: Location, Pool, on-sight restaurant/bar, great staff, large room, safe, fridge, coffee pot in room, free breakfast & Wi-Fi. Prompt response for maintenance/issues. Workout room/weight room. Rooms were clean compared to other places I saw in Costa Rica. As expected based on booking sight information. Cons: Layout of the property could improve. Reception is far away from most rooms, the parking lots are rock so carrying suitcases is essential (not that big of a issue for me). Sink was missing the drain stop & the inside was full of something gross. I am not a fan of the floor polish used (makes the floors slippery). Other: Major construction was taking place outside our room (building a new set of rooms) so this was loud but we were not in the rooms most days (2 times we wanted to nap and couldn’t, oh well). It’s understood construction and is needed to make the place better. That being said it would have been nice for the balcony to get wiped down daily (lots of dust). I thought it was odd there is no towel hanger by the sink, or a soap dish (I used a cup). The breakfast was good (same thing every day), I liked the coffee. The Friday night party was a lot of fun the band was very good! I would stay here again!!

Hotel El Manglar

minimalist on a secluded beach

The hotel is definitely enough to cover the basics and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo. The neighborhood is quaint and breakfast nextdoor at Cafe Mar Azul is wonderful. The instructions about toilet use and beach access left a bit to be desired, but overall the stay was fine. The girl at the front desk also did inform us that Orbitz had charged us more than they would which was great because that prompted me to request a refund from Orbitz. That said, we were charged again directly by the hotel upon checkin and they then had to refund us in cash a day later because they weren’t sure how to process a return. The beach is beautiful and has a wonderful variety of shells to see. Also, about 5k up the north shore (can walk) are black sand beaches. The hotels proximity to the National Park for the possibility of seeing a leatherback turtle lay eggs at night is also ideal. Last but not least, be sure to stop at Taco Star just north of the hotel beach for amazing tacos!
