Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Vic and Linda, Ottawa

    "We were very sure we had rented a very comfortable condo before we even left for Costa Rica and we were not disappointed. This condo has everything one could ask for, especially when staying for a month as we did. The beds are comfortable, the showers were great with lots of hot water. Condo furnishing were top notch. We spent a lot of time in the pool which was exceptionally clean. The patio which was well furnished was quite a good size. The kitchen is well stocked with essential small appliances, a great microwave and stove. We found the washer and dryer very convenient. The security and grounds keeper, Alvaro, was great in helping us out in any way he could. The condo is a 15 minute walk into Tamarindo which we did frequently. We also caught the bus one day which goes by the condo many times a day. There is a small store around the corner which sold most things we were in need of. Another larger supermarket on the way to Tamarindo. The beach is a two minute walk and great for early morning walks. Tamarindo itself has loads of good restaurants, and some nice shops. Overall, a great visit to Costa Rica made even better by our comfort at the condo."

  • Fabulous Condo!!

    "Out family of 5 (three young kids all under age 7) recently spent 4 days at this great condo. It was perfect. The pictures really don't do the place justice. The condo was a lot bigger than we imaged and the balconies were a huge plus. We ate all our meals outside on the main deck and we used the deck off the master for afternoon reading and cocktail hour. The condo was fully stocked with all the little things needed but not thought of – towels, kitchen spices, plastic wrap, etc. This is an end unit which is great for privacy and not sharing walls. The condo is very nicely decorated and has very comfortable sofas, beds and outdoor furniture. It was also nice that one of the guest rooms had two queen beds. The condo could sleep 8 people. Our kids really loved the pool (massive) and we usually have the entire pool to ourselves (we stayed in August during the low season). But it was nice that the pool bar was open to get drinks. It was an easy 3 minute walk to the other hotel pools and beach. The location of the condo is great in that you don't need a rental car and can walk to all the restaurants, shops, bars. The Lyrics office were easy to work with and we would highly recommend this condo."

  • 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."

  • Hidden Gem!

    "We arrived at our Playa Langosta rental and upon entering the condo, we were immediately blown away. The amount of space we had was incredible. I felt the pictures on the website were true to what the condo was. We were able to have a home away from home experience while on an amazing vacation to a beautiful country! We rented a car and so were able to shop at the grocery store and prepare delicious meals in the beautiful kitchen provided for us. The beaches and town of Tamarindo are a fifteen minute walk and worth it!! We loved La Esquina number five!"
