Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Five Stars Not Enough!

    "This was a great experience, from the first email from Bob Wilson, property manager, who explained the location of the Ibis complex and a description of the 3-bedroom penthouse condo. It was exactly as he described and more. The condo’s wrap around deck is furnished with couches, lounge chairs and table for 8…like an extra condo added on to the spacious great room. Each bedroom has an in suite bathroom and the kitchen is a gourmet delight. The building is totally secure and sits across the street from the Langosta Beach Club. The Beach Club was great! Beautiful, quiet beach and pool area, nice staff, great food! Being given access to the Club with the rental of this condo is another reason to stay here. You don’t need to rent a car. It’s about a 10-minute walk to the town of Tamarindo, where you’ll find a number of great restaurants and shops. Bob Wilson, property manager, Sebastian, concierge and the wonderful staff helped us with too many requests to count. We give the condo five stars and the exceptional staff and service a 10 + Adding up the reasons to stay at the Ibis…#1 beautiful home #2 great location, #3 private beach club access and #4 outstanding service! We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends, family and anyone reading this review! Thank you for a delightful stay and we look forward to returning next year!

  • Paradise at Casa Paquita

    "Our group of 4 adults spent the week of February 7th 2015 at Casa Paquita. The property was fantastic with a great ocean front location. The beautiful pool was a center point of activities where we enjoyed swimming, dining, and fantastic sunsets all with beautiful ocean views and well manicured gardens. The back yard is lushly landscaped with paths leading down to a gate to the ocean. The ocean itself is offers fantastic views and is great for exploring, but the waves come ashore across volcanic rock making swimming directly behind the property impossible. There are some small safe entrances to the ocean nearby and large swimming beaches within walking distances. The living area and kitchen were inviting and well maintained. The upstairs patio offers another great area to relax and enjoy fantastic views. The property, inside and out, is multi-tiered with numerous areas for groups to congregate. There were only 4 of us, but we commented how members of a much larger group could find many places to enjoy a little privacy. The bedrooms are very large and comfortable with vaulted ceilings. The construction quality of the house is top notch, but I found the flamboyant use of tiles in the bathrooms is a little over the top. This is definitely not a new house, but it is well maintained. The housekeeper, Nohemy, was unbelievable. She took care of the property, our laundry, dishes, and breakfast all while helping keep a watchful eye on the property. On the last point the property felt very secure with an electric gate securing the front and a tall, but very nice, fence securing the rear. Finally there is a very sweet and aging dog named smokey there who will bark at strangers, but learns guests immediately. Smokey will keep her distance if desired, but we tried to adopt her during the stay and greatly enjoyed the company of this pet. I have to give final credit to the gardener and pool service who were there daily to keep the place looking its best. I would absolutely go back to Casa Paquita and recommend it to anyone considering a trip to this area of Costa Rica."

  • Great place to stay!

    "What a great vacation! Mary Beth and Scott were great prior to and during our actual trip. They sent us a ton of information about the area and things to do based on their personal experiences. The condo was well kept and updated. There was plenty of room for the 7 of us to relax after a day at the beach or after coming back from an adventure. The property was well maintained and everyone was very friendly. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and we can't wait to go back!"

  • Family getaway to Tamarindo

    "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."
