Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Great location- across the street from the beach and walking distance to everything in town

    "My husband and I stayed for a week with both my parents and our two children (6yrs old & almost 2yrs old). Mike and Kathy along with their friendly staff were awesome and accommodated our VERY late check in. We loved having a pool in the back yard for the kids to swim in and the the beach and various restaurants right across the street. While there are many adventurous activities to do within driving distance, we chose to spend the majority of our time relaxing in the backyard (watching monkeys, birds, etc), on the beach, and exploring the town by foot. We did so one adventurous thing though - take our 6yr old zip lining at Pura Aventura. We had a blast and felt very safe! Cafe Tico (2 min walk out the gate and to the right) is a must if you like coffee. As is Langosta Beach Club if you're looking for a great place to sit and watch the sunset and have a nicer dinner."

  • Great family Vacation

    "I would give this 4.5 stars but we'll round up to 5. Overall, the condo is a great value for a 3 bedroom 4 bathroom unit and we had a really nice vacation. I will start out with a few minor negatives to set expectations. The bathrooms are not air conditioned. The top floor bedroom air conditioning unit cant keep up with the hot weather outside (97degF) in the daytime. It is fine in the night. We had some small ants during the first few days. RPM maintenance came in when we were gone and took care of the issue. We had issues with the safe, some missing bulbs and a small stone blocking the kitchen cold water line. RPM maintenance took care of these issues. Some of the pots/pans need to be replaced. The phone works but has a broken display on it and needs to be replaced. There are 20 steps to climb between floors when you leave the unit. So, 40 steps or 2 flights of stairs gets you to the pool/beach level. If you're in OK shape, this is not an issue. As mentioned a few times, the beach in front of the unit is NOT swimmable. You need to walk 1/4 mile to the left AND make sure you go at a lower tide. That Langosta Playa beach is dangerous when the tide is high or coming in because of strong estuary currents. You cant walk along the beach when the tide is high and need to check the tide tables. Positives: The view and sunsets are amazing. The furniture in the units are very nice and the beds are comfortable. The pool is wonderful. The beach tidepooling out front is fun (wear sandals.) The employees at the gatekeepers/cleaners were nice. RPM management was great with maintenance, questions and for all our tours. The kitchen worked well for our family to prepare meals. WiFi worked well. I would say that you need a car to stay here comfortably. The walk to Tamarindo isn't pleasant because the road is un-paved, dusty and hot. The owner recommended Dollar rent-a-car. We got a 4-wheel drive 7 seater with a portable GPS (highly recommend) for $450/week. Remember that Costa Rica is a 3rd world/developing nation. There will be chickens and dogs in the road occasionally. The drivers will pass you on narrow roads. If you are used to driving in cities, you will be fine. The supermarkets had everything we needed. The fruit, pineapples, mangoes, avocados were amazing. Try some experiments with the local food. We enjoyed Costa Rican plantain chips, a nut mix and their packaged OJ. Overall, we had a great time and would return."

  • Family getaway to Tamarindo

    "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."
