Great time in Tamarindo
"This was our first trip to CostaRica and I am so glad we chose Tamarindo and to stay in Bocaraca! Joel is absolutely awesome and really went out of his way for us.. Bocaraca is a perfect location in the town of Tamarindo. It's a 2 minute walk to all the restaurants and beach and it really is a very nice place to stay! The howler monkeys around the property are an added bonus as well. Thanks again Joel for everything!!! Pura Vida!"

"We loved the Hacienda with its open concept around the courtyard and swimming pool. The kitchen as part of this space was great both for meals and easy access to snacks and drinks. The bedrooms were comfortable, and it was nice to have the option of having and AC'ed space if needed, although like the recommendation we tried not to rely on that too much to acclimatize ourselves. Our group did kind of wish that the sitting/TV room had air conditioning. Also I'm not sure if it was typical of March in CR but there were a ton of mosquitos. So as long as you're prepared for that you will have a lovely stay at the Hacienda del Pacifico. The things we loved was the proximity to the beach. The staff. And we would strongly recommend the Friday Beach BBQ at the Hotel Capitan Suiza."

"Stayed six nights in this great home for our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. It easily accommodated ten of us and the four grand kids could not have had a better time. Definitely worth getting the four seater golf cart. Would absolutely stay here again."

"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."
