Will be back!
"Our stay was truly one-of-a-kind! The views from the Diria were incredible. The units provided everything we could have needed. The staff took great care of us. We are forever grateful for the great cleaning service they provided - clean fresh towels, neatly-made beds, and clean dishes. The really took care of us, to ensure we had a great stay. One of our friends organized a trip for using Blue Water and our trip was seamless. Tony took great care of us and made this one of the most memorable trips ever! We will definitely be coming back and asking for Tony again. He was so attentive and provided a great experience for us in Tamarindo. He went above and beyond his work and we are truly grateful for his hospitality. With such a big group i was worried about how our activities would play out, but he was able to accomodated all of our needs. I highly recommend staying at the Diria, the views alone are remarkable, and using Blue Water (ask for Tony)!"

"We just returned from our first visit to Costa Rica. From the pictures we could tell that Crystal Sands was really nice but we were still blown away by how luxe the accommodations are. It lacked for nothing by way of amenities - moreover all the furnishings and decor are of superior quality. Loved being able to start my day with my morning coffee on the terrace overlooking the ocean, and then end my day watching the sunset on the same terrace. The location is convenient to town without being in the actual hustle and bustle. I highly recommend contacting Lola at RPM for some guidance on local tours. We did the trip to Palo Verde with Jose "Negro" as our guide who was wonderful! Also the horseback ride to Playa Conchal is not to be missed. As I gazed upon the beautiful shoreline I told my family, that after I'm back to the the daily grind at home, I will close my eyes and go to my happy place by bringing up the memories of our time in Costa Rica and "Pura Vida." Thank you Annette and Tom for going above and beyond with your home. We'll definitely be back!"

"The condo was an awesome place to stay. close to the beach, close to restaurants, no need to drive anywhere. We meet loads of great people; visitors like myself and so many great local folks. The condo looks like the photos on VRBO. The security is great and they open the door for you every time you exit and return. They are there 24 hours a day. Nothing stolen, and so much gain! Meaning - meeting folks from different countries is a blessing. The world is a great place! Thank you Frederick to allow me to rent your beautiful condo in Tamarindo!"

"The house was beautiful, comfortable, spacious, well-appointed, in a beautiful development. The pool was perfect for our family of 10. It was everything that was shown and mentioned in the description.
But, there was so much more to the vacation!
My family adored the Beach Club (and I may have enjoyed more than a few of their "Banana Bungees"). Having been to a few similar places, the food and drink were really good AND appropriately priced (not regularly observed at the same time). The beach itself was gorgeous, with great swimming, and my sons took surfing lessons. But, most of us just lounged by the pool.
The activities in the area are terrific. From zip lining (Pura Aventura is the best and close), horseback riding, jet ski snorkeling tours, Rincon volcano, waterfalls, and hiking, we had a memorable activity every single day.
This is close to a beautiful town, with all the shops and restaurants you need. And, a terrific grocery store nearby, with local brands as well as American.
It was as memorable as it was enjoyable. There are a lot of location choices in Costa Rica, and an abundance of places to stay once a location is chosen. Choosing Casa Marbella is the best answer to all the questions!"
