Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Great unit, grounds and location

    "This was a great rental. The unit is very nice with three bedrooms, a good sized kitchen, comfortable living room and a small table by the window that made for a comfortable computer work station to keep in touch. There is a good washer and dryer and the kitchen was well stocked. The TV was a good size. There were plenty of shower and pool towels. There are two safes that make locking things up easy, which is important for peace of mind. This is one of five units in a gated compound surrounding a pool. It is the only second floor unit, so it is quiet and quite private. If I could change one thing, it would be to replace the french doors between two of the bedrooms with a wall, but if you have little kids the doors are probably better to give them more of a connection to their parents. Outside was even better. There is a large table (seats 6) on a patio overlooking the complex. There are trees all around, so it has a nice view but it also private. We had breakfast there every morning and a few dinners as well. There is also a side patio down a level, with two chaise lounges. Down by the pool there are another few chairs and tables, so there was usually no issue getting a spot to relax. The pool was great for the family. Warm, clean and a good size. A bit too short for lengths, but ever so fun for lounging, made up water polo, diving for object or just floating and watching the iguanas or monkeys. Really idyllic. Finally, the location was just as good as the unit and grounds. It is on a quieter street on the far side of Tamarindo. It is a couple of hundred yards past the bars and restaurants, so it was quiet at night, but close enough that walking into the heart of Tamarindo for dinner was a pleasant stroll. It is across the street from the beach, but there is a pass through right across the street from the compound so you're on the beach in a minute or two. The beach is really nice. Flat, fine sand, with spectacular sunsets. We've rented a ton from VRBO and this was one of the better units as it was great for the unit, the grounds and the location. We loved it."

  • Beautiful place in Tamarindo, Langosta Beach, Costa Rica

    "Just spent 10 days at this great home with my Sister. It was my 2nd time in Costa Rica and my sisters first. Beautiful furnishings, clean and comfortable. Used the dipping pool everyday because it was so hot. Short walk to the beach. There is a beach club you can use and is included in your rental. The beach club has a pool, gym, food, bar and cabanas. We went there everyday. The property manager Bob was very helpful when we arrived and showed us around and helped us shop for food. Restaurants nearby are excellent. Our favorite was the Green Papaya."

  • Paradise Re-visited

    "This is our second visit to Crystal Sands and it was just as wonderful. We had dreamed all year of returning to the spectacular views and spacious accommodations and it did not disappoint. The location is far enough from the bustle of Tamarindo but close enough to many restaurants and conveniences. Our favorites we tried this time were Patagonia Argentine Grill, (a definate favorite - reservations recommended) , Dragonfly, Matty's Cafe, and Lola's on Playa Avenallas. We took an ATV tour to 2 beautiful beaches and a Safari in Palo Verde National park where we saw many animals including monkeys, scarlet macaws, and crocodiles. But our favorite place was on the balcony for morning coffee and at sunset. The RPM team was dependable and friendly as well. Thank you Annette and Tom for sharing your beautiful Costa Rica home."

  • Amazing!

    "This by far has been our best family (husband and 8 yr old daughter) vacation! From the moment we arrived it felt like we were home. Bob, Sebastian, and Juan Ro made our stay very comfortable. The driver was supposed to stop at the big grocery store but ended up taking us to the equivalent of a 7-11. When we arrived Bob showed us around the condo (which looks exactly like the pictures) and then took my husband grocery shopping. The location of the condo is directly across from the beach club and about a 5 minute walk to downtown which offers tons of amazing restaurants. The condo itself is clean and well maintained, and very comfortable especially the beds. Juan Ro took us on an incredible tour to Rincon de la Vieja and Sebastian arranged the Estuary tour for us (it wasn't super exciting for an 8 year old unfortunately) and I took surf lessons with Marco who was a great instructor. I also did the surf set fitness class at the gym at Langosta Beach Club which I would highly recommend. We all felt very safe walking the beach and streets of Tamarindo in the evening. I'd say the only downfall was that we couldn't stay here for our entire 2 week vacation as they did not have the condo available for the whole time."
