Recent Tamarindo reviews
Incredible Views and wonderful staff!
"I was concerned that the picture in the review would be more spectacular than the real thing, I was pleasantly surprised that in fact the view was even better than the photo. We booked this trip for Spring Break to meet our college age kids as it was geographically ideal to meet in Costa Rica from both the West Coast and the East Coast and the house was perfect for the 4 of us. Hans was a pleasure to deal with and the house staff were very nice and helpful. In particular we felt right at home with the house dog, Lacy. We wanted to relax in the pool and look at the view, which is almost all one needs to do as it really is that interesting. My son and I hung out in the pool and bird watched for hours and was amazed at all the species and activity. The house had everything one needs to feel at home. I highly recommend the property as an ideal location in 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."

"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."

"We needed a place to please multiple ages (14-75) and interests, and this was it! This GORGEOUS condo is in a quiet spot right across from the beach and just a quick walk to tons of great restaurants, a market, and shopping. You can walk the road or the beautiful beach.To access the beach, you walk through the Langosta Beach Cub, a luxurious spot with cabanas surrounding an infinity pool, a bar, a lovely restaurant, a gym, and a spa, all of which you have access to while staying in the condo. As the saying goes, "Pretty is as pretty does", and the staff went WAY beyond expectations to make our stay awesome. Bob drove me to the big grocery store (have two teenage boys to feed), and Sebastian arranged a 4 a.m. pick up for us to the airport and recommended a restaurant (Patagonia) that had the best steak I've eaten in my 48 years. Juanro arranged a private surfing excursion to Playa Grande for my boys they will remember forever. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us, and it truly felt like a home away from home...only better!"
