Recent Tamarindo reviews
Tamarindo in March fantastic
"I echo the other reviews in stating this house and location are great. The house is up the street a block from the main strip through a small town. The house was perfect for our two families of 10 total, beds were great. A/C was great and pool area wonderful for hanging out. Modern grocery was five minutes away, and town was small but very laid back with lots of options to eat. We liked we could put both rental cars in the garage and come and go with two sets of keys and garage door opener. Almost every morning the howler monkeys would come through the trees which was a huge bonus. We cooked in the big kitchen several times and maid service was nice to have. W/D made clean up from the beach easy. The beach was walking distance and you can rent chairs and awnings right there as well as beers and sunset empenadas. Truly a relaxing time watching the kids boogy board and surf. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Next time I will really debate whether we needed rental cars, hardly used them."

"This was our first time to Costa Rica and we could not have been happier with our stay. Our family of four stayed for a week and we loved the condo. It was spacious, nicely decorated and had fantastic views. We loved the location in Play Langosta because my fifteen year old son was able to walk to the beach to surf.
If you have never been to Tamarindo, Playa Langosta is a great area to stay. It is about a mile away from the touristy area of Tamarindo and very safe and quiet (Costa Rica seemed very safe in general). We were able to get our fill of the busy city center of Tamarindo and then retreat back to solitude at the condo to enjoy the beach and pool. The Horizontes complex is very well maintained with 24 hour guards and the property management office was across the street and very responsive to any questions. this is a great condo for a family to stay in and the owners were very responsive and accommodating as we planned our trip.
We drove in from San Jose, which was a very scenic drive (about 4 hours) and we ranged quite a bit on excursions from Tamardindo. if you go, make a road trip to the Hacienda Gualachepelin - great zip lining, horseback riding, river tubing and hot springs about two hours away near Liberia. We also made it down to Playa Negra to see some of the best surf in the world. Our friends rented a house in Playa Negra and we made it there several times. For us, Playa Negra homes and Playa Grande homes were too isolated so we loved being within walking distance of Tamarindo. You won't go wrong with this condo....

"We spent a wonderful three weeks at Casa de Valencia sharing our time with family and friends who came and went during the time we were there. For the first time in our many travels, though never to Costa Rica, we did not rent a car. Given the location of the villa and all of the activities and transportation options available, we did not miss having one. Getting to and from the airport in Liberia was very easy and can be arranged through the rental office or a van or taxi can be easily arranged from the airport.
The villa itself was very comfortable and the outdoor patio, dining and pool area wonderful. We spent most of our time outdoors and loved the visits from birds, iguanas and monkeys. The staff at Casablanca was friendly and helpful and provided any assistance we needed. We did most of our own cooking and enjoyed the outdoor grill, fully equipped kitchen and proximity to the local grocery store and fresh fish market. Kenny provided a handy wheeled shopping cart which made life very easy!
We enjoyed the beach, ocean, pool and various tours of the area. Most of all, we loved being able to hang out on our wonderful and secluded patio reading, and reveling in the Pura Vida life. We enjoyed it so much that we're hoping to spend a month next year at wonderful Casa de Valencia."

"Costa Rica was just what the doctor ordered. Our family trip included some awesome adventures ( white water rafting & zip lining across the jungle), balanced out by some time at the pool, beach, spa & golf course.
We arranged our trips through Tamarindo transfers & tours, and they were wonderful with everything. Prompt, courteous, friendly. We had the same driver( Rodolfo) for all of our trips and he became part of the "family".
The location of the property was ideal, close to many amazing restaurants, beach & nearby supermarket( to stock up on some breakfast items, coffee & beverages). Most within a short walk or cab ride. While dining at one of local beachfront restaurants( Nogus), a cow walked on the path through the restaurant. The four of us were amazed, like he knew where he was going.
We enjoyed coffee on the patio most most mornings & after dinner drinks in the evening.
The owner of the property provided a thorough description of activities, restaurants & places of interest to visit, so it was a wonderful resource for a first timer at the property.
Plenty of space for the family, and had almost everything you needed( I forgot a hairdryer). Plenty of lounge chairs at the pool, and we were able to rent chairs/umbrellas at the beach for a nominal fee.
Wish we had more time to try some of the other restaurants & cute little coffee shops around town. Hope we can get back soon!!"
