The Occidental Tamarindo is a beautiful property. It is very clean and well cared for. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The pool is to die for. It is clean and not crowded even with a good deal of people in it. The beach is nice. The entire place is very peaceful and a great getaway. The food while not great, is not horrible. Some of the dishes could use more seasoning.. I highly recommend this resort.

Great Place to stay for the price range. Different beach options from waves to shallow pools.

2nd time staying at this property. First time was 12 years ago when it was Barcello. The Tamarindo area has changed into a tourist area. Food was not as good and varied as first visit but Covid May have affected that.

Great place, convenient, food was ok

I wish I took the negative reviews seriously. I did not get the room a paid for. It was dated and dirty. When I first got to my room I told them it wasn’t correct. They moved me to the same style room. I was so disappointed I let it go. The food is HORRIBLE! The drinks are HORRIBLE. I’ve stayed at all inclusive a before and this was such a disappointment. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.

For the amount charged property should be better maintained. rooms were cleaned every day, but mold in certain areas in the bathroom never disappered. Intertainment-below avarage. Only food was good and friendly personnel.

It was clean. Close to the beach. Food was good. Only issue is the road leading to the hotel is not paved. Difficult to drive.

completely over priced without a luxury feel, food was not good at all, but it was right on the beach so the location was good in that sense. Not so convenient to get into and out of town $5 cabs each way and long wait for them to come (but I was there around holiday/busy season).

Nice staff. Food was good. But need more entrrtainment

The rooms were very nice but would not easily cool off. It was very warm in Tamarindo and the air conditioning was not adequate. However it was a very good experience.

Room dirty mold and rust all in room i would really lunge a refund i requested a king bed they only had 2 doubles i was just not satified at all
