Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Great House

    "We really enjoyed the stay at Casa de las Olas. It was in the perfect location...being so close to the beach, and just out of the noise and traffic of Tamarindo, but yet close enough to walk down for dinner or other activities. My three year old loved the hammocks, outdoor showers and futon for watching TV. The wife thinks that with the included bikes, that we don't need to rent a car next time. That remains to be determined. Best vacation in a long time. Definitely will be returning."

  • Wonderful place for a family holiday!!

    "If you are looking for the perfect place for a family holiday get together - this is it!! Our family, five adults and one grandson, spent two weeks in Annette and Tom's Crystal Sands condo and couldn't have been happier. Not only is the location great but the condo couldn't have been better. Lots of room, equipped with everything that you could possibly need and a little bonus, spectacular sunsets viewed from the deck. The condo was well maintained and the maid service was nice to have. The three large bedrooms are like mini suites within the condo giving you your own space to relax. Lola, Natale and the other friendly staff at RPM Property Management were quick to respond to any concerns we had and were great at arranging tours for us. They also made numerous recommendations for things to do and places to go. Going out the gate onto the beach was great for taking walks, searching for sea shells and for walking to town or to nearby swimming and surfing. Our grandson loved the condo pool that we usually had to ourselves. If you have a vehicle, I would recommend making a day trip to the beaches at Playa Conchal and Playa Avellana, both are spectacular. Tamarindo has a great selection of restaurants if you want a break from cooking your own meals. A few recommendations: La Pachanga (Italian), Bamboo Sushi Club, Matty's Deli Cafe (next door to RPM Office), Surf Shack Burger and Wings, Sprout (on the way to Villa Real), La Panderia de Paris (French bakery) and Lola's (on the beach in Playa Avellana). Thanks again to Annette and Tom for providing such a perfect location for our early Christmas family vacation. We can't recommend it highly enough!!!"

  • A quiet place in Tamarindo

    "We visited Tamarindo with our three teenagers. I would like to make a distinction between the house and the service from the property management company. Bob and his staff were very helpful and really made our stay in Tamarindo easy and enjoyable. They are a 5/5. Our flight arrived late, but Bob was there to meet us with tips and reccomendations. Our tour questions were answered quickly and booked efficiently. Wonderful service! The house has a comfortable layout and the pool is a real treat on those hot afternoons. Air con, washer and dryer and wifi are great to have and all worked. The location is very quiet, which is nice. The house, however, could use some updating. There are stains on the living room couch, and the beds are not comfortable. The loungers by the pool were rotten, but the staff replaced them when I pointed that out. One of the air con units had leaked all over the floor, but maintenace was there quickly to fix it. One thing the picture doesn't convey well is the front yard is really just the pool and it is in the front of the house that overlooks the cul de sac. Its high enough and there is a small hedge so there is privacy. The area is pretty quiet as well. It's not a quick walk to the beach and if you have little kids you'd want to consider that. It's a balance between a quiet neighborhood and proximity to the beach. The walk down the road is very scenic and enjoyable. Overall, we certainly enjoyed our stay and I very much appreciated the manager's service and on our next trip to Costa Rica I will be contacting Pura Vida Property Management. The location is quiet and amenities are convenient and the house is clean. Owners of the house need to do some sprucing up considering the asking price of the rental."

  • Perfect And Private With All The Amenities

    "I stayed here with 3 others for 4 nights. I wouldn't pick anywhere else to stay, even after seeing all the other houses nearby. The views were priceless. A short walk uphill takes you to the tallest point of Tamarindo which was awesome for sunsets. The interior of the house was very authentic, clean, comfortable, and homey. As part of renting a house (as opposed to a villa or hotel room), we were worried that we wouldn't have all the services and amenities; however we were provided everything we could ask for and more: Upon arrival the property manager, Hans, met us at the house and drove me into town to show me where the ATMs and best places to go were (this was before we had access to a rental car). He couldn't have been more helpful. We were also put in touch with Margarita, who organized a full day of activities for us and even cooked dinner at the house one night (upon request). She was great-- we told her what kind of activities we wanted and she put together everything and had further ideas for us, such as setting up masseuses to come to the house for massages. The awesome local couple and their young son who live near the house provided maid, cleaning, laundry, and security services. They would see us coming up the hill and open the gate to the house for us every time with a big smile. Also, the morning of the day we left, they cooked a Costa Rican breakfast for us which was simple but by far the best breakfast we had the whole trip. Then there was Layce, the "guard dog." What a sweetheart she was. We couldn't get enough of her company. There were added bonuses that weren't mentioned in the listing description, such as an electric, full-body massage chair in one of the rooms. Another bonus (I think is mentioned briefly in the description) was a large, outdoor, covered bed that was perched behind the house; it casted an excellent view of Tamarindo, the ocean, and Langosta. Book your stay at Casa Catalina and you won't be disappointed. There's nothing we would change about it!"

Tamarindo Travel Tips

An Unforgettable Trip to Tamarindo Beach Rentals

Who does not dream of unforgettable vacations, especially in a tropical paradise? If you are looking for such a trip then vacations in Costa Rica may be your answer. In Costa Rica, you have different provinces to choose from, including the Guanacaste Province in northwestern Costa Rica. In this area, you will find Tamarindo Beach rentals. The sandy beach may be just a few feet from your back door and you'll find surfing opportunities you will never forget. As you sit on the deck of Tamarindo resorts, you can look out at the Pacific Ocean for whales as well.

Tamarindo Resorts Are Easily Accessible

Tamarindo is a larger city in the province due in part to its accessibility. Flights and private charters can reach Tamarindo resorts by way of the International Airport in Liberia. It is 45 minutes from Tamarindo Beach rentals. In the town, you will pass by small stores, restaurants, and souvenir locations which you will want to visit at least once. Vacations in Costa Rica like those in Tamarindo ensure you have all the amenities at your accommodations, as well as in town.

Vacations in Costa Rica at Cape Sailfish

Tamarindo Beach runs along a section of bay formed by Cabo Velas or Cape Sailfish. To the north of Tamarindo resorts is Playa Grande which is inside the bay. Two beaches in this area are separated by a saltwater estuary called Estero Tamarindo; to the south of the bay, you'll find Playa Langosta. Vacations in Costa Rica are not complete without a stop at both beaches, especially because they are preserves for the giant leatherback sea turtle. If you visit between October and March, you will see the turtles come on shore at night to lay eggs.

Tamarindo Beach Rentals near Jungle Boat Tours

During the day, you can take a different sort of trip around the beaches. Jungle boat rides are offered to guests of Tamarindo Beach rentals who want to spend the day on skiffs in the mangrove forests. It is possible to see birds, mammals, and reptiles while on the tour. Canopy tours are also available for visitors who want fantastic views of the forest below.
