small parking, small pool, no gym. Clean, nice bed, good price, good location

Amazing staff and owners, super close to the beach, great breakfast!!

The price is expensive for this type of property. Not really impressive. The pool is not clean every day so there was leaves and bugs. The man on the front desk was very welcoming. But the women who served eggs for the breakfast need to learn how to be with clients. I think she doesn't like her job, like a lot of staff... Hopefully, there is a restaurant inside the hotel. This restaurant only serve dinner who was totally awesome!!!

Nice property in a great location. Hotel owner, Richard, was great! The room was clean and comfortable. Hotel restaurant is extremely good.

We met the owner of the hotel who was very attentive to our needs!

Good breakfast, great little omelette bar. Staff were all great and accommodating. Was in good location to everything as we walked to beach, food and shops with a 7 month old baby.

My name is Richard and I am the owner of the Hotel. I I am not sure who the guest is but believe he had a reservation fro 4 people and paid $180.00 per night. Tamarindo is the most popular beach resort in Costa Rica. One can look at the pictures on our website and compare this price to other hotels for a reservation with 4 people. I think the price is a good value for a large room with 350 square feet with two very high quality queen beds and a very nice bathroom. During the time the guest was here, (March) it is very dry and windy. We have a pool maintanence person who cleans the pool every day. We also have a hotel maintanence person who clean the grounds and the leaves from the pool every day. When we have a wind storm we clean several times a day.. During these times there are leaves in the pool at times and most guests can see that with the wind this is unavoidable. We are in a tropical forest so there are insects but maybe one or two not a lot in the pool sometimes. I think this guest wanted the pool clean like an indoor pool which is impossible. I should say the water is always clean as we test the water quality daily. We have a buffet breakfast with a lady cooking omelets. She speaks enough english to understand the egg orders but not to have a conversation.Most guests experience her as friendly. It could be an idea to have a sign saying this and have some words translated from English or other languages to Spanish, so the guests could try to communicate with her. The inabilty to communicate could make the person seem unfriendly.The guest says alot of staff which I guess means in a general way about many workers not liking their job. The guest seems overly critical but we will use what they said to try to improve the communication at breakfast.
