Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • 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."

  • This Must Be The Garden Of Eden!

    "We just finished up a one week stay at Casa Del Rey. This place is absolutely beautiful! The home is newer Spanish style construction and is very well built, well stocked and beautifully decorated. The floor plan works wonderful for a large family or multiple couples. Having your own private swimming pool is awesome. So was waking up to nature's alarm clock with the sounds of exotic birds and monkeys every morning! This plus having maids to clean up after you every day; it just couldn't have been better! This house was so nice to hang out at that we were torn as to if we wanted to leave and see Costa Rica or stay and just relax. Its location couldn't be more perfect. You are just a short block away for downtown Tamarindo. Far enough that you don't hear any traffic or nightlife, but so close you are there in a minutes’ walk. We fell in love with this beach town. The weather was a perfect 81 degrees with a pleasant cool breeze. There are lots of wonderful places to eat and shop plus plenty of nightlife to enjoy. Many of the restaurants are directly in the sand. The beach was really clean and it wasn't crowed. It was so close to the house that there is no need to get in your car. For just a few bucks you can rent lounge chairs & umbrellas that are already set up on the beach. Reasonable priced vendors will sell you fun stuff such as coconuts and will open them right there with their machetes. We saw several people riding horses on the beach, surfing or just hanging out to watch the gorgeous sunsets. We took a small boat that leaves from the beach area and went up the river to see exotic birds, monkeys and several crocodiles. We were concerned that we wouldn't be able to communicate because we do not speak Spanish, but it wasn't a problem because most of the Costa Ricans spoke English and they were all so friendly. The owners of the home were very responsive and great to work with. They gave us many suggestions for places to visit and things to do while we were there. Arrangements can be made to pick you up from the airport so you don’t even have to rent a car! We had been privileged to travel to many places in our lifetime, including Cancun, Tahiti, Punta Cana and Hawaii on multiple occasions. I have to say by far; Tamarindo is now our new favorite town and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere but at Casa Del Rey! Book it before someone else does; you won't be sorry."

  • Great location!!

    "This Condo is huge and was plenty of space for us 3 couples. The location is very close to the beach only about a 10 minute walk. There is a small grocery store at the bottom of the hill which has most of the essentials. The list of food recommendations was great we tried out so many. Las Baulas pizza was great. La Bodega across the street for breakfast and coffee is excellent!!. We did the wok n roll and everyone loved their Sushi. The surf shack has some of the best burgers and fries I have had. All the restaurants have Costa Rican service which is relaxed. Plan on being in any of the restaurants for 2 hours unless you go before 6 so don't arrive hungry! For our local cuisine we talked with someone in one of the downtown shops and she recommended we eat out of the back of this women's car. Apparently all the locals eat what she brings. It is a traditional rice/ beans, Plaintains, a slaw of some type and vege, pork, chicken or beef. She parks under a tree downtown near the Diria Hotel. The cost is only about 4 Us dollars per meal. She is there only at lunch. We got lunch from her twice it was so good. If interested in it ask some of the locals they will direct you. Not well stocked to cook as we only found two spices in the house. We opted to eat out instead. I did find that food is kind of expensive here. A small jar of peanut butter will run you over $6.00 so if you don't want to eat every meal out maybe bring some small items from home. Also we were there at a busy time of year and they seem to have some type of rolling blackouts. We would lose power in the evenings for a few hours so you may want to plan ahead. Also we were in Tamarindo for New Years and we had so much fun walking on the beach at midnight with probably 10,000 others watching the fireworks and all the paper hot air balloons being let off it was so beautiful!!"
