Great Place. Great Vacation
"We stayed here for the week over Christmas. It is a great villa. Lacking for nothing. Close to town, beautiful beaches in a wonderful spot. Highly recommend."

"The pros: the condo is in a nice complex with an attractive pool and hot tub that we enjoyed almost every day, most of the time having it all to ourselves. The condo has almost everything you need (except food...which is shockingly expensive). The master room is spacious with a nice size bathroom. I would have opted for different sinks as the bowls take up much of the counter space but there is a shelf below the sink too. The owners provide hand, dish and body (liquid) soaps and laundry detergent and fabric softener, plus the linens and beach towels, all included in the rental fee. The kitchen is well stocked with the essentials you need to make your own meals "at home." The views from the balcony are just beautiful! There wasn't always a breeze so it was sometimes too muggy with bugs around to enjoy but other times it was absolutely perfect. All the people we met at the complex, around town, and on tours were very nice and helpful. The owners were also a pleasure to work with.
The cons: the beds in the second room do not have the foam topper that the master bed has so they aren't as comfortable for adults (headboards aren't attached to the beds). The sheets and towels have some stains (the spare king-size sheets have a tear in them), several of them just need to be replaced. The condo has a few maintenance items that need to be addressed, mostly normal wear and tear, hard water, and a humid environment. There is an issue with a window/door leaking in the master bedroom when really strong winds accompany storms. We were without water 3 times so I would definitely recommend putting water in bottles and pots to keep on hand. We only lost power once, just for 10 minutes. The roads to the condo are rough so be prepared to experience the "Costa Rican car massage." The pool wasn't always cleaned so we spent a few hours skimming the pool (had we mentioned this to the maintenance staff, I'm sure it would have been addressed). Even after resetting and rebooting the modem and wireless router, the wireless internet in the condo rarely every worked so we were often using the wireless internet from the complex instead.
Other important info: taxis into town are anywhere from $5 to $10 one way (higher fare is to go to the Auto Mercado which has the largest selection around and gluten free items). Do NOT change money at the airport! Everywhere we went accepted US dollars.
Overall, we really enjoyed our 2 week stay at this well-priced condo!"

"This by far has been our best family (husband and 8 yr old daughter) vacation! From the moment we arrived it felt like we were home. Bob, Sebastian, and Juan Ro made our stay very comfortable. The driver was supposed to stop at the big grocery store but ended up taking us to the equivalent of a 7-11. When we arrived Bob showed us around the condo (which looks exactly like the pictures) and then took my husband grocery shopping. The location of the condo is directly across from the beach club and about a 5 minute walk to downtown which offers tons of amazing restaurants. The condo itself is clean and well maintained, and very comfortable especially the beds. Juan Ro took us on an incredible tour to Rincon de la Vieja and Sebastian arranged the Estuary tour for us (it wasn't super exciting for an 8 year old unfortunately) and I took surf lessons with Marco who was a great instructor. I also did the surf set fitness class at the gym at Langosta Beach Club which I would highly recommend. We all felt very safe walking the beach and streets of Tamarindo in the evening. I'd say the only downfall was that we couldn't stay here for our entire 2 week vacation as they did not have the condo available for the whole time."

"I traveled here April 2015 for my boyfriends surprise birthday. There were 5 of us altogether and it was absolutely perfect! Carol is awesome to communicate with and the villa itself is gorgeous. The walk to the store for food is like 5 minutes and it's a really close walk to the beach as well. Security made us feel very safe. There's nothing negative that I would say about our trip (other than it was too short haha).
Cheers from Toronto!"
