Recent Tamarindo reviews
Good way to see how the locals live on permanent vacation
"My wife and I visited Casa Boaz on our honeymoon and had a good time in Tamarindo. We stayed in the Casita Romantica, which was plenty of room with a full kitchen and bathroom. The property itself is great for nature lovers, as there is wildlife all over the property, which you will want to become comfortable and acquainted with if you're going to enjoy Costa Rica, because it's everywhere. The pool was nice and cool and the outdoor shower was key. Dee was kind enough to allow us to use the surfboards for a few days, and we had a great time at the beach. She pointed us in the direction of some very good restaurants that you likely wouldn't find otherwise. She was very helpful.
Casa Boaz would likely be perfect for a large group of people who wanted to stay together, but also wanted their own privacy. The property isn't too far from the town, and as long as it's not raining (muddy roads), it's not that bad of a walk. Otherwise, I'd rent a car, bike or ATV to zip around to some cool spots. Thanks again, Dee."

"Costa Rica was just what the doctor ordered. Our family trip included some awesome adventures ( white water rafting & zip lining across the jungle), balanced out by some time at the pool, beach, spa & golf course.
We arranged our trips through Tamarindo transfers & tours, and they were wonderful with everything. Prompt, courteous, friendly. We had the same driver( Rodolfo) for all of our trips and he became part of the "family".
The location of the property was ideal, close to many amazing restaurants, beach & nearby supermarket( to stock up on some breakfast items, coffee & beverages). Most within a short walk or cab ride. While dining at one of local beachfront restaurants( Nogus), a cow walked on the path through the restaurant. The four of us were amazed, like he knew where he was going.
We enjoyed coffee on the patio most most mornings & after dinner drinks in the evening.
The owner of the property provided a thorough description of activities, restaurants & places of interest to visit, so it was a wonderful resource for a first timer at the property.
Plenty of space for the family, and had almost everything you needed( I forgot a hairdryer). Plenty of lounge chairs at the pool, and we were able to rent chairs/umbrellas at the beach for a nominal fee.
Wish we had more time to try some of the other restaurants & cute little coffee shops around town. Hope we can get back soon!!"

"We spent a wonderful three weeks at Casa de Valencia sharing our time with family and friends who came and went during the time we were there. For the first time in our many travels, though never to Costa Rica, we did not rent a car. Given the location of the villa and all of the activities and transportation options available, we did not miss having one. Getting to and from the airport in Liberia was very easy and can be arranged through the rental office or a van or taxi can be easily arranged from the airport.
The villa itself was very comfortable and the outdoor patio, dining and pool area wonderful. We spent most of our time outdoors and loved the visits from birds, iguanas and monkeys. The staff at Casablanca was friendly and helpful and provided any assistance we needed. We did most of our own cooking and enjoyed the outdoor grill, fully equipped kitchen and proximity to the local grocery store and fresh fish market. Kenny provided a handy wheeled shopping cart which made life very easy!
We enjoyed the beach, ocean, pool and various tours of the area. Most of all, we loved being able to hang out on our wonderful and secluded patio reading, and reveling in the Pura Vida life. We enjoyed it so much that we're hoping to spend a month next year at wonderful Casa de Valencia."

Great location- across the street from the beach and walking distance to everything in town
"My husband and I stayed for a week with both my parents and our two children (6yrs old & almost 2yrs old). Mike and Kathy along with their friendly staff were awesome and accommodated our VERY late check in. We loved having a pool in the back yard for the kids to swim in and the the beach and various restaurants right across the street. While there are many adventurous activities to do within driving distance, we chose to spend the majority of our time relaxing in the backyard (watching monkeys, birds, etc), on the beach, and exploring the town by foot. We did so one adventurous thing though - take our 6yr old zip lining at Pura Aventura. We had a blast and felt very safe!
Cafe Tico (2 min walk out the gate and to the right) is a must if you like coffee. As is Langosta Beach Club if you're looking for a great place to sit and watch the sunset and have a nicer dinner."
