The location is great and the staff is super friendly. The rooms are very small with little to no storage and the rooms are not very clean. The safe didn't work, the door seemed flimsy and not very safe, there is very little water pressure as well. Bugs, and even though that is understood to some degree in Costa Rica, these were unnecessary. Spiders and cobwebs that should have been taken care of daily, were not. If you aren't looking for much, as far as the room goes, then you will be okay. The staff is very nice and helpful, the food is good and the location is very convenient. For the money, it's worth it, just don't set your expectations too high. I highly recommend their breakfast options and their margaritas! Happy hour is 4-7 every day!

This was not as pictured. Our room had a view of barbed wire and the sliding doors were not secure. We did not feel safe.

Clean, and everything worked as expected. Staff was helpful setting up a catamaran tour. I would stay here again for sure.

This hotel is ok. Clean, good breakfast, friendly staff. It was fine, but the rooms just do not look and feel nearly as nice as the photos online. This is a little bungalow hotel. The internet did Not work in the room. It always worked in the reception area, and sometimes in the restaurant by the pool. I would think of staying here again, but would definitely check out other options first. (I would like to select 'maybe I'd recommend it to a friend' or 'I don't know.')

I was dissatisfied with the reception area I found cats and dogs all over the place giving with this bad odor, was dirty. No parking, no cable TV & the WiFi poor. Generally is too expensive for what they offer.

Tropical setting, monkeys in the trees every day.Clean rooms friendly staff.

This is a beautiful little hotel (only 23 units +/-) that surround a nice pool. The entire property is set in a very tropical motif. The rooms are very cozy. The have a nice bar/restaurant next to the pool that resembles a giant tiki hut. Very cool. The hotel is a short walk away from "downtown" Tamarindo and the beach. It's much closer to the action that many of the large hotels however it is far enough away you don't have to deal with the noise of tamarindo, which was much busier than I expected. The only negative I had were the Wi-Fi is very too good and there are some howler monkeys that hang around that can be loud in the morning and early evening. No big deal though.

The staff at this hotel was fantastic. so accommodating from the moment I stepped onto the property. Made my vacation feel like a vacation. Great location in Tamarindo away from the noise but very accessible.

Thanks for your visit, we have change the lock of the sliding door, it is true it was a little hard to open or close it and it is much better. We just changed our WiFi system too and hopefully we will have a better signal. We love our howler monkeys but we hear you, yes they can be loud I am confident that you enjoyed to watch them with the babies monkeys. Pura Vida!!
