"Horizontes Del Mar was the perfect property and location for us. We were a party of 7 adults 32-39 years old and it was spacious enough for all of us. The condo itself is decorated beautifully and what makes this unit so special is the private sun roof deck with BBQ grill. We had the perfect sunset view and saved money by cooking and barbequing as much as possible. We would all definitely come back and stay in the same unit. The pool and beach is right there and very accessible and so is the town either by walking or taking a very short taxi ride. The staffs at Pura Vida Luxury Condo are very nice, attentive and helped us with the best experience possible. We would also recommend staying 2 weeks if possible as the week flies by. Thank you Bob and staff for a wonderful vacation!"

"We stayed at Ibis #8 for 2 weeks, from Jan 4-18th. As other reviewers have pointed out, the unit itself is very well appointed with high-end appliances, sturdy furniture and all of the modern conveniences one would expect from an upscale condo. The condo itself does not have any amenities onsite (pool, gym, etc.) - these are located directly across the street at the Langosta Beach Club. Ibis guests have full access; the club is also features one of the nicer restaurants in the area. This is the quieter, more scenic section of Tamarindo beach, which may appeal to those seeking a slower pace.
Sebastian (the concierge) was very friendly and approachable. He always greeted us with a warm smile and was great with our kids. Bob handled a few issues that came up and he took care of them promptly. The security/groundskeepers/housekeepers were all very friendly and helpful. One of them kindly fixed a broken strap on our luggage, which we really appreciated. The crew at the Langosta Beach Club were also very fun and energetic.
Some might find the location a bit remote (you will need to drive or walk 5-7 mins to get to Tamarindo, down a busy dirt road with no sidewalks) but we liked the fact that it was quiet and relatively secluded. We were a bit disappointed with the dust and road noise that came from the adjacent Langosta Road. Apparently a paving project is imminent, so the dust issue may be addressed soon. Nevertheless, if you are a light sleeper, I would suggest looking for a unit facing the rear of the building, which faces the Tamarindo Preserve.
The unit boasts comfy beds, a pull-out sofa sleeper, nice plumbing fixtures, tasteful decorating, modern appliances and three separate decks. The WiFi is not particularly strong - barely enough for Netflix, fine for e-mail and social networking. There is no VoIP line in the unit, so you will need to rely on mobile or Skype for making calls.
Overall, this unit served us well and we were not disappointed. We would recommend it to others, seeking a quieter location in an small & modern building."

"I had the pleasure of spending a month at Casa Bali recently and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The house is very well equipped from an amenities stand point (pool, A/C, wifi,laundry, etc) and is truly in a fantastic location. It's at most a 2min drive to Avellanas, less than 10mins to Playa Negra, and 20mins or so to Tamarindo.
During the stay we had 2 small dogs who also enjoyed the house, friends, and even family who were a bit older. Everyone had nothing but good things to say.
Definitely recommended and would absolutely stay here again."

"Excellent property with well equipped kitchen(could use some more large bowls), beautiful pool (even tho the pool lights never worked) and well furnished bedrooms. The internet was down for 3 days but Bluewater properties sent someone to repair it. Sandra (the maid) was wonderful and kept the place clean and tidy in spite of 6 adults and 3 children. The A/C in the master bedroom blows down onto the bed and caused us both to go down with colds. The security guys were friendly. Bluewater property management were wonderful. Everything we asked for was supplied. Would definitely recommend this property. The sunshine was lovely but we found Costa Rica to be too hot as it was 30-33deg celsius everyday which precluded doing too much during the day."
