My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica in July with our two children, ages 3 and 1. Tamarindo Dreams made for a great stay with our little ones. Our villa had two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One bedroom had two queen sized beds which was perfect for our little ones. The villa was spacious and had enough supplies for us to make small meals when needed. We went to a local grocery store and purchased oatmeal, cereal, milk, fruit and other snacks for the kids and the kitchen was well stocked to make small meals easy to prepare. The A/C worked well in all of the rooms, which is a plus for such a hot destination. The villas each have a pool in the backyard and nice walking trails behind each. There were tons of butterflies in our backyard and PLENTY of monkeys in the mango trees out front. We had a great time watching them climb and walk around in the trees! It was such a great highlight of our stay. We also had a huge iguana to visit our pool area and saw a couple of big raccoons as well. I love observing animals in their natural environments, so staying at this villa allowed for great experiences with the wild life. We ended up renting a golf car during our stay, as we didn't venture outside of Tamarindo. I was nervous initially about the golf cart with two small children but it worked out perfectly. Even with the bumpy roads,we were fine and the kids enjoyed the rides on it. It was about a 5 minute ride in the golf cart into town where all of the restaurants and shops are located. We saw plenty of people walking into town, but for us with small kids, walking would have been too much of a hassle. Eric, the manager, was very nice and helped us arrange our golf cart rental, as well as transportation to and from the airport. The cleaning staff came by each morning to clean the villa and restock our towels. The security guard got a bad rap in some of the reviews I've read on here, but she was always very pleasant to us and NEVER gave us any trouble entering the villa every day. I have do idea what people are talking about....maybe this is a new guard or she's changed her ways. At any rate, she was always very kind and helpful to us. Overall, our stay was very nice. Bring bug repellent! We did end up with mosquito bites, but nothing too bad. It's to be expected given the environment. We just dealt with it by applying lavender oil on the bites to stop the itching, as I forgot to pack bug repellent. If you want a spacious, clean villa away from all of the hussle and bussle, this is for you. The hotels right in town simply aren't as nice as the Tamarindo Dreams and Villas. I personally can't deal with shabby lodging so I was very happy with this villa. You won't be disappointed!

Stayed in a gorgeous private villa with our own pool! Kids loved it, was great spot to spend quality time with the family! Very spacious and our conceirge Eric was always available for any issues or concerns, he was on it right away and everything was dealt with as quickly as possible. The Villa was a 5 minute drive to the action in Tamarindo or a 5 minute walk to a nice less busy beach of Langosta, which was great for swimming and exploring. Langosta also had a few good little restaurants of their own and a well stocked corner store. Would definitely stay there again!

We rented 3 villas and the service and quality was awesome. Walking distance to everything. Private pools for each villa. Clean and spacious!! Security onsite 24/7 and they are happy to accommodate and help with recommendations.

We recently spent 10 days vacationing in Tamarindo, the villa was wonderful to stay in! The spacious environment and private pool were more than we could have hoped for! Staff promptly cleaned the villa and pool each day and the manager (Eric) stopped by periodically to ensure our stay was going well. These villas are perfect for a family vacation or getaway with friends, lots of space to socialize with privacy as well. The fully equipped kitchen (and nearby grocery stores) made it easy to cook meals in the villa. There are also tons of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops within walking distance ( or short golf cart drive). The private pool located in the beautiful back yard of the villa was an extra bonus and was a gorgeous place to relax and visit in the afternoons with a few cocktails. Tamarindo dreams villas were absolutely amazing we would love to return!!

We stayed here two nights, pleasantly surprised at the facilities and staff. The Villa was well appointed, with two bedrooms and bathrooms. The private pool was a definite plus. Problem was that we had no hot water the first night and despite the hotel staff's efforts could not be repaired. Eric and Warren were right on it the next morning, moving us to a larger Villa next door, moving our luggage, and otherwise very apologetic and helpful. This was a wonderful stay. Highly recommend for large groups as the Villas are large and spacious. Thank you again to the staff. As an aside, beware of the bitter lady guarding the street on which the Villas are located. Despite numerous introductions, she still didn't recognize us and would not allow our taxis through to the Villas, requiring us to walk. Strange and a bit over-zealous.

You share your villa with bugs and a creepy security guard. Raccoons by the pool and the worst roads I’ve ever seen. You are a 10 minute walk from the water. Appliances didn’t work and the place is always dirty. We spent the first day pleading with Eric the manager to fix everything that was broken or falling apart.

I stayed her last week and the villas are excellent. I initially stayed alone and then was joined by my family. I felt safe at all times and security were very friendly and helpful. The villas are large and well equiped with everything you could need in the kitchen. The air con works well.The outdoor space and pool was amazing. The villas are about a twenty minute walk to the town, shops and supermarket.Marco in reception was excellent helping me book taxis And sort out any other problems. I loved my stay there and wouldn’t hesitate to go back there. I was sadto leave.

This villa was exactly what our group was looking for! We were 6 adults and the villa was more than enough space for everyone to be comfortable. The pool in the yard was great and was cleaned everyday in the morning. The staff that came to clean the villa each day were great too, with 6 people in and out of the pool the floor gets pretty dirty. The villa had a washer and dryer that came in handy as we were traveling for a total of 17 days. Marco was my contact for the villa and he went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. He helped book us a shuttle from the airport that took us directly to the house, tours and shuttles for when we left. Thank you again Marco! The villa is only about a 5 min walk to the beach where you can catch a beautiful sunset or walk about 10 min south to a better swimming beach. Langosta was about a 15 min walk into Tamarindo but if you wanted to stay close to the villa, Langosta had an excellent little grocery store and a couple decent restaurants. Tamarindo had some great restaurants but the villa was stocked with cooking wares so we did cook a lot at the villa too. If you're thinking about staying here, do it!

Personnel were very friendly, helpful and responsive. Property close to all amenities. Great setting for a family vacation. Tamarindo Beach is an excellent location with lots of activities and places to eat.

We stay in a Villa this past December. The villa was very clean, very spacious, walking distance to the beach, near to supermarkets, dining. The staff was very friendly. This villa has its own pool, so this made us a very pleasant vacations as we had 2 small kids. We enjoyed our stay and definitely will recommend to others.
