Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Great condo, location, staff

    "We stayed at the condo for two weeks. It was our first visit to Costa Rica. The unit was as advertised. It was clean, safe, and in a great location. The condo is easy walking distance via the beach or the street to numerous restaurants and stores. The beach club across the street was a great place to spend the day. The beach is beautiful, the food is good and the staff is very helpful. (It is a beach club, so no outside drink or food). Bob and the staff at the condo were all very helpful with arranging tours, restaurant recommendations, calling taxis. They also provided a ride to the grocery store for us so we could stock up for our stay. The unit was cleaned regularly during our stay. They washed and changed the bedding and all towels on top of the regular cleaning. Great place to stay! We will stay here again our next trip to the area."

  • Great VRBO rental

    "Our family of 5 stayed in this condo at Hacienda Pinilla the week of 4/4/2015-4/11/2015. This was our second trip to Pinilla but our first stay in this condo. The condo was well equipped for our needs and a fabulous location. My seven year old loved the fact that there is a pool right outside the front door of the condo! I would highly recommend Hacienda Pinilla as one of the best places to stay if planning a trip to Costa Rica. Other reviews mention on property activities in Hacienda like horseback riding, golf, and the beach club with great service and food. The JW Marriott is next to the condo but very high priced and the food is average at best. My sons surf and we surfed everyday at playa Avellanas near Lola's. There are great dining options off the property as well such as Lola's, The Beach Box, Mauna Loa and Hotel Mediteranneo. Tamarindo is only a short drive. We had a personal chef come the first night we arrived at the recommendation of the property manager. It was excellent, one of the best meals we had while there, so be sure to ask about that option if you book here! Overall, a great condo and location and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone coming to Costa Rica."

  • Great unit, grounds and location

    "This was a great rental. The unit is very nice with three bedrooms, a good sized kitchen, comfortable living room and a small table by the window that made for a comfortable computer work station to keep in touch. There is a good washer and dryer and the kitchen was well stocked. The TV was a good size. There were plenty of shower and pool towels. There are two safes that make locking things up easy, which is important for peace of mind. This is one of five units in a gated compound surrounding a pool. It is the only second floor unit, so it is quiet and quite private. If I could change one thing, it would be to replace the french doors between two of the bedrooms with a wall, but if you have little kids the doors are probably better to give them more of a connection to their parents. Outside was even better. There is a large table (seats 6) on a patio overlooking the complex. There are trees all around, so it has a nice view but it also private. We had breakfast there every morning and a few dinners as well. There is also a side patio down a level, with two chaise lounges. Down by the pool there are another few chairs and tables, so there was usually no issue getting a spot to relax. The pool was great for the family. Warm, clean and a good size. A bit too short for lengths, but ever so fun for lounging, made up water polo, diving for object or just floating and watching the iguanas or monkeys. Really idyllic. Finally, the location was just as good as the unit and grounds. It is on a quieter street on the far side of Tamarindo. It is a couple of hundred yards past the bars and restaurants, so it was quiet at night, but close enough that walking into the heart of Tamarindo for dinner was a pleasant stroll. It is across the street from the beach, but there is a pass through right across the street from the compound so you're on the beach in a minute or two. The beach is really nice. Flat, fine sand, with spectacular sunsets. We've rented a ton from VRBO and this was one of the better units as it was great for the unit, the grounds and the location. We loved it."

  • Amazing time!

    "The condo is everything described and more. Carol was great to work with arranging this vacation. She sent her recommendations, plus maps and how to get around. Made this easy as pie. Alban, the groundskeeper, is friendly and will show you the local animals & vegetation. As well, Alban keeps the pool very clean and the yard immaculate. The private pool is a bonus after wandering the town, the beach, and the walk up the hill. There is night time security which are friendly and will give you a hand anytime. The kitchen has everything you need but be aware of the water shortage at times during the day. Housekeeping was excellent, friendly and thorough. This vacation was the most relaxing and enjoyable vacation so far. We will definitely be back! Thanks Carol!"
