Our room was small. No place for luggage. Cramped clean bathroom. Good AC and fan. Hotel had no connection to Restaurant where food and staff were excellent.

We loved it, my husband and I went for a weekend to celebrate our birthday. Super cute lil hotel right at the center of tamarindo. We had a great view of the beautiful sunset, did not have to drive or walk a lot to get to places. Super simple but very clean and comfortable. They came to clean everyday, the staff very kind and welcoming. They offer transportation from airport to hotel at a great price and also offer the covid test which they came to us at the hotel and took less then 5 min. We got the room with breakfast included which is a lil italian restaurant few steps away from hotel which we loved, super delicious breakfast and the owners were very nice always so welcoming. Overall we loved Costa Rica and are very happy we chose this Hotel for our trip. Definately coming back !!

Beautiful little quaint boutique hotel right on the beach. Who is the perfect location to all Tamarindo has to offer. My husband and I stayed here for a week it was perfect, clean, and beautiful also the restaurant and right next-door was amazing! I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for something authentic and beautiful. The complementary breakfast was so good! The staff was very accommodating and friendly! Whenever we needed a taxi anywhere Ronaldo was very accommodating to help us get one. We will definitely be back!!!

Extremely tranquil well located place right on the beach. Service was outstanding, loved our room!

Where to start? This hotel is simply AMAZING! Rolando greeted us upon arrival (which was very late due to some insane traffic) and walked us to the room. The room was unique and right on the beach! He then helped us park and explained how breakfast worked- which was also fantastic! The location of the hotel was unbeatable as well, right near all the action but quieter down for a great night of sleep. I can’t wait to come back and stay here again!

Location right on the beach was great!! Restaurant was great too. So were all the people who worked at the hotel and the restaurant. Howler Monkeys in the trees right outside our room. Birds and other wildlife all around. Awesome 👍

This is a quaint property close to everything. We enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and I never slept so long on a hammock before, so relaxing. Car was parked in safe location. Renaldo the guy who checked us in was super helpful and Had ready my special request for flowers, chocolateS and wine for our arrival. If your planning just a relaxing laid back get away this hotel is perfect, but if your expecting marble floors, elaborate decorations then this place is not for you.

close proximity to a beautiful beach, lounge chairs, hammock, outside shower, nearby restaurant, surfing equipment, comfortable large bed, room had loft for larger family

Very nice hotel right on the beach. Room has bed up in a loft with a nice view, AC, mini fridge, coffee maker and free wifi and parking. Bathroom is on the small side, this is only downside I can think of for this place. The best thing about this place besides the location (literally steps from the beach) is the staff. Rolando and Audrey were so helpful and nice. The restaurant (also right on the beach) also had an amazing staff. We ate there or had drinks there every day of our stay. Food and service were great. Luis and Michael and all the other waiters were fantastic! Highly recommend this place. Also the coffee the hotel provides for your room everyday was amazing!

For us,who seek a down-to-earth experience, this hotel is the best! Nestled toward the end of the commercial strip, this hotel has unique privacy between the trees and just steps from the water. Highly recommended.
