I loved that all the rooms had an ocean view! I loved that the restaurant was situated outdoors, with a great view facing the ocean and that the hotel offered free breakfast every morning; actual breakfast with eggs, fruit, pancakes etc! I loved the hotel pool area, serene and beautiful with an in pool bar! I loved that the hotel had a free shuttle that took you to the city of Tamarindo and to a free beach club right on the beach!

NO HOT WATER IN SHOWER ! SINK GOT HOT BUT SHOWER NEVER DID ! EVERY ELSE WAS GOOD

Absolutely stunning views. My group had 12 rooms, and each one had a spectacular view. The location is perfect, close to the beach and town, and the shuttle service is easy. Sunsets from the pool-bar were amazing.

It’s literally the best location in Tamarindo...up on the hill with a beautiful ocean view for each room, away from the hustle of the town, but with regular shuttles downtown. The pool is amazing as well. Two negatives: 1) the bathrooms are not great...the water is neither warm nor cold, and the shower pressure is aggressive; 2) there are 20 chairs by the pool for a hotel that houses probably 150-200 guests at any given time. Old people with no manners go down at 6am, “claim” all the chairs, and the rest of the hotel is out of luck. There needs to be ALOT more chairs, or the hotel staff needs to monitor people who put their towels on the chairs, but spend all day in their rooms or downtown.

Had a flat on my rental car. Asked the desk clerk if he had a maintenance man who could change the tire for me but he did not, so he did it himself. Then he wouldn't even take anything for doing it.

Loved this place! Great staff. Nice location overlooking the city. Will be back for sure!

very modern, didn't exactly fit the area. shuttle to Langosta beach club and downtown was great. Breakfast was OK the staff seemed to be a little behind in making sure there was enough coffee, water, cups for coffee, etc. pool area was beautiful - but... there were only 20 chairs for a hotel built for 5 times that amount.

My wife and I decided to go to Tamarindo after hearing such wonderful reviews of the area. We had no idea of where we were going to stay other than looking at photos on the internet. We decided on the Esplendor Hotel. It turned out to be a great decision. The hotel was spotless and all the staff were extremely nice, helpful and friendly. They made our stay very enjoyable. The breakfast buffet was superb with a wide choice of food both hot or cold and the meals in the evening were superb. Both me and my wife could not find fault. The pool bar was excellent and the bar tender very friendly. The pool was delightful in the evenings and being in the pool and watching the sunset amazing. The only fault I could find at the pool was that there were not enough chairs and umbrellas for the amount of guests at the hotel. The hotel is right at the top of the town overlooking the bay with spectacular views from every room. The only downfall with this was having to take a shuttle into town as the trek was a little on the hard side. One problem was the shuttle ended much too early if you needed to get back to the hotel in the evening. We missed it twice but fortunately were able to get a taxi for about $6. The hotel room was spacious and extremely clean, it did lack drawer space and there were no chairs in the room although there were two chairs on the balcony. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and my wife and I will definitely be staying there again.

Male staff was very nice. They gave us good tips on where to go, restaurants, etc Shuttle to the town/ beach was always full Room bathroom towels where horrible Wished I had picked a hotel with a better beach access: is close to the beach, but hilly walking

Very nice hotel with the best view in tamarindo. It's on a hill so you over see the ocean. The rooms are great and there is a shuttle that takes you to tamarindo every 30 minutes. The complimentary breakfast is very yummy and there is a variety of food. Overall a great experience at Esplendor.

This place is amazing! The rooms are clean, the hotel is modern and the views are some of the best. The AC works great. The balcony (although we were the only ones using it) was great for hanging out and enjoying the view. Every room is an ocean view. The staff is friendly and on Thursdays they have live music (chill music). We had dinner there once which was nice. We rented a car so it being up the hill made no difference. We also brought several huge beach towels so that wasn't an issue. The room has a fridge which is also a plus. I'd definitly recomment this place and I'd go back again. Great value and great stay.

Location is nice, very close to town center in Tamarindo. Rooms are nice and clean. Would've been nice to have a table on the balcony (there are chairs). Despite the hotel amenities saying it has an airport shuttle, it doesn't have one. There is a shuttle into town but the service stops at 8pm. Breakfast is included but the options are limited: rice and beans, fruit, eggs, sausage, coffee. They had pancakes 2 days out of the 7 mornings I had breakfast. The swim up bar in the pool hardly ever has someone in it to serve you. I got bit by a centipede in my bed on my first night which was definitely not fun and when I told the front desk in the morning they didn't seem to care. Shower is great.

Staff is incrediblely nice and helpfu. Rooms are comfortable, and moderately clean.

Stay in this hotel was great! Beautiful hotel, nice pool, room spacious with a nice view

Wonderful. Had a blast. Hotel very accommodating to guests with children. Will be going back.

staff at the restaurant we're excellent especially Melanie she's very personable!She has that personality that is lacking at the front desk!!! Lacking Staff at Front Desk area. We observed one person doing all tasks: answer phone, handle check in/check out....etc Multiple task being handled by one person.

Hotel was very nice and clean. Staff was even better. So nice and helpful. Both Jose in the bar were very nice and pleasant to talk too. Well mannered guys. Everyone from the front desk, security guard to housekeeper were good. The view was awesome! Pool was nice and clean. The most beautiful sunsets can be seen from here. The only bad thing is trying to find the hotel. It's hard to find at the beginning. The breakfast was very good. Typical Gallo pinto was served and it was delicious. Very nice and quiet. The views from the rooms are very pretty
