A Wonderful First Time in Tamarindo
"Our first time in Costa Rica and we were so impressed. The property is wonderful and the amenities and location are first class! We loved our two weeks at Boca Raca and we liked being so close to everything. Amanseo (sp?) doorman was so wonderful and helpful. He hugged us goodbye!! Joel provided us with some awesome tips on places to eat, do etc. My husband and son loved surfing. The views were awesome and you can view the ocean from every bed:) The balcany was private and we enjoyed many dinners out there! We also had the option of eating out at some wonderful places. We are coming back!!! Thanks Joel! Rosie did an awesome job of cleaning and we appreciated the crisp fresh clean linens!!!"

"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."

"Stayed at this property in May, 2015. Everything you need is included with the property. A quiet area, away from the hustle & bustle of Tamarindo. Just a few steps from the ocean, every sunset was beautiful! There were many things in the area to do, including ATV trail riding, Zip lining and whitewater rafting, great hikes along the many beaches in the area. Any problem was handled by the management company. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again."

"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!!"
