Recent Tamarindo reviews
Great Place, Great Manager
"This was a beautiful house. The four bedrooms are all like suites, only 2 units have to share a bathroom. One unite stands alone like a carriage suite. The house is on a road outside Tamarindo. It was a very peaceful stay. The manager, Julius couldn't have been nicer. Great communications via email and in person. He was always just a phone call away."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
This property was a great location to stay in Tamarindo. The pictures of the condo matched what we saw exactly and it was beautiful. The ocean view was exactly what we hoped was very well furnished and very comfortable. Cleaning was great and we even got a cleaning during our stay even though we were there only 3 nights. Everything worked, except the satellite went down the last day which was no big deal. RPM was very easy to deal with. We enjoyed using the Diria's facilities while we were there. There were only 2 issue that were small. We could have used a map to where the condo's entrance was and where we should park our car when we checked in, we did figure it out but a map would have helped. Also we thought we could use all of Diria's facilities and we were told that we could not use the beach side pool and chairs, just the condo side pool. We have access to the beach though. I was going to call RPM to ask, but for the rest of our stay is was a non-issue so I didn't. I would stay there again and would recommend the condo's over a hotel room at the Diria for a family."

"The location of the condo to town and the beach was great. It's far enough from the noise of the town, yet close enough the 5 minute walk doesn't make you feel you are missing a thing. I suggest you walk the beach to get to town, it's just as quick but more enjoyable.
Beach access is right across the street. Making breakfast and walking over to enjoy the morning surfers and the waves was nice. Although we didn't take full advantage of the clubhouse, it appeared other families did, and they were happy with the activities offered.
Security at the condo were very nice and helpful.
The concierge, Sebastian, was great. He always had an idea/place to go/adventure to take/solution to a problem. Don't hesitate reaching out to him.
The condo was nice. We were greeted by the local land crabs upon arrival, made us all laugh. They are harmless and more than happy to be put back outside. The space in the condo was plenty for three. There was ample closet room for bags and clothes. And having the washer and dryer in the unit was great.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay in Tamarindo. The only hiccup we had at the condo was the internet. If you need/want it, be sure to verify it is working.
I'd recommend the condo for groups and families. The access to town and the beach are both great, and the security and concierge make for pleasant interaction as you come and go."

"We just got back from a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica and a beautiful stay at Crystal Sands Condo. Annette and Tom have thought about everything a family would need in their home away from home. This condo was absolutely beautiful and fully equipped. We had five adults and we had plenty of room. The large deck that overlooked the ocean was a perfect place for starting your day with a leisurely breakfast, watching the humming birds, and then watching the spectacular sunsets every evening. The pool and hot tub were very clean and well maintained. We walked into Tamarindo each day and the route was lit at night. There are two markets within walking distance where we could pick up groceries. Lola at RPM was very helpful and responsive and we appreciated her coordinating our shuttle from the airport and then back again."
