Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Paradise

    "Congratulations! If you are reading this review, you have just made the best discovery you will ever make. My husband and I found Casa Doshack four years ago, and we have returned for longer and longer stays each winter since that time. It is truly a perfect little cottage in the midst of a tropical paradise. Located directly on the quiet end of a long, beautiful beach, Casa Doshack has been (and will continue to be) a wonderful place for us to relax, recharge, and enjoy a peaceful break from our busy lives at home. Here is a sample of our typical day at Casa Doshack: We rise early and take a run or walk on the approximately 1½ mile beach, which is nearly deserted at sunrise. Then we drink coffee and visit as we sit in rocking chairs on the veranda, which looks out over the ocean. We spend the mornings reading or writing or taking pictures of the exotic wildlife, which surrounds us in the beautiful garden. We usually go for a swim in the ocean or take another walk along the beach. Then we prepare lunch in our fully-equipped kitchen and eat at the big table on the veranda, or we wander down the beach to one of the many restaurants in Tamarindo. After lunch, we have time for more reading or we take a snooze in one of the hammocks in the lanai on the edge of the property overlooking the beach. Sometimes we go on an excursion in the afternoon, or we stroll into town to pick up groceries, visit the Farmer’s Market, or shop at the many boutiques and gift stores lining the streets of Tamarindo. We always make time for another swim and another walk. At dusk we make our way to the beach for a view of the gorgeous sunset. In the evening, we prepare dinner on the grill and dine on the veranda or stroll along the beach one more time for dinner at a restaurant. We look forward to settling into our comfy bed where the sound of the ocean and the feel of the breeze lulls us to sleep. Kathy Doshack, the owner of Casa Doshack, goes out of her way to take care of her guests, arranging activities and transportation and offering great advice and information. Her cheerful housekeeper Illeana keeps the house in order and will cook wonderful Costa Rican meals upon request. The friendly gardener Manuel entertains us as he maintains the pristine garden. To give an adequate description of the virtues of this wonderful place would take many more paragraphs, but you really need to experience Casa Doshack for yourself to understand its magic."

  • The best I've ever been to!

    "We recently spent 4 nights at Gary and Jolene's beautiful casita. We lucked into this place due to a last minute cancellation and I am so glad we did. This is, hands down, the best VRBO/B & B/hotel we have ever been to. The property itself is amazing. They have done such a lovely job on the grounds. It is so relaxing and peaceful, you don't really want to leave the pool area. We stayed in the smaller of the two casitas and it was beautiful. Jolene has done such an amazing job of decorating the interior. The casita was very well stocked. They had all the equipment you would need to cook on site including spices, coffee etc. The bathroom was stocked with shampoo, conditioner and even face cleansing cloths. They serve breakfast weekdays and it was fantastic. Maria is an incredible cook. Fresh fruit, french toast, omelets etc. (each day has a different speciality). The other guests at the hotel were great. Everyone got along so well that we tended to linger after breakfast for some interesting chats! The location is perfect. Just outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown but less than a 5 minute walk. Gary and Jolene are fabulous hosts. They really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They are what makes Casa Andulucia so special. The only bad thing about it is that eventually, you have to leave! PS - I would recommend the turtle tour with their son Brooks (if in season). He was a fantastic guide!"

  • Great Condo in Tamarindo

    "Our family stayed 5 nights in Tamarindo in July. We loved the layout of the condo and the resort amenities were perfect. The condo was close to some great restaurants all within walking distance. We didn't use the hotel restaurants as there were too many great choices nearby."
