This is the place to stay in Tarmarindo - Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

I own a vacation rental property and tend to expect a lot of the places I stay. This property is absolutely exceptional; the pictures do not do it justice. It would be considered a high end condo in the USA and was in the premier building in the Tamarindo. The condo has travertine floors, granite counters, valuated ceilings, nice furnishings, ceiling fans; large balcony with seating etc. All the little things were done right, a complete book about the condo and the town, very nice towels and linens, a well-appointed kitchen and the location is ideal. You get to use the hotel facility which is the only nice hotel on the beach in the entire town. There is also an incredible pool for the condos only which features a swim up bar etc. You can walk to everything you need; there is no need for a car. Do not even think of staying in another building.

Fantastic - will come back

  • 5 of 5

Just got back - LOVED it - was concerned that it was not going to be anything like what is posted and was happy to find out it was exactly how it looks in the picture. Security was fantastic - the condo is unbelievable. Walked to the beach everyday (about 2 min walk). Grounds were very well maintained. Could not believe how clean the beach in Tamarindo is. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Can't wait to return with family and friends! We went with our 2 kids (in their 20's) and they really enloyed it also. The nearby beach is great for surfers and those who want to learn to surf. If you are going on excursions the drives are a little longer than if you stay in Liberia however it is well worth the drive. My kids thought the beds were a little hard but my husband loved them.

Beautiful Condo and a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with our selection of this absolutely beautifiul condo for our Costa Rica vacation. It was very spacious and was fully furnished and decorated as described and pictured. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was new and clean. It all worked too. With children, a laundry room is almost essential and this one was was extra large for a condo. The bathrooms were good size and the extra powder room at the entrance was a nice plus.Rebecca was great to work with and Yira (Office Manager) was extremely helpful during our stay. We decided to rent a car after we were there a couple of days and Yira helped us find one when availability was very limited. There were a couple of convenience stores and a few good places to eat within walking distance, but having the car really opened up our opportunities. There's a place called Gil's that's fairly close. They have great burritos and such. We walked there the first time, but is was pouring down rain when we were leaving, so we asked if they could call us a cab. Gil would have none of that. He gave us a ride back in his own car. There's also a place down at Witch's Rock called Joe's I believe. It's the place that advertises nachos as big as your *$%&. Their prices are reasonable and they have great burgers, sandwiches, nachos of course, etc. There are 2 restaurants owned by sisters up on the hill. One is seafood and the other is pizza. I don't recall the names, but they were awesome. We also had several good meals at the restaurant that's on premises at the Diria. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Stunningly beautiful condo, could not have asked for better!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to the Diria, the first time we stayed in the hotel and toured the condos in the construction stage. They were awesome even half done. This time we were surprised to be in one of the newly constructed units. We manage to squeeze 7ppl (2 adults) and 14, 12, 10, 7 and 5 year old children. King bed, two twins a decent pull out (well I guess there all uncomfortable for adults...but not for three little kids)! Priced fairly at the edge of the main season, we managed to take advantage of great weather, few ppl and convenient location. This is a very nice property that is located on the Diria hotel property. It overlooks the large free form pool and is a just across the street from the beach. The Diria property encompasses both sides of the road by the way. You are allowed access to the entire property which is a nice perk. This location is the MOST convenient place in Tamarindo, although Tamarindo is not that big anyway. Still it is an easy walk to anything, grocery store 200 yrds, restaurants (the high end ones are onlt a few hundred yards away) and shops, banks etc. Despite all these conveniences don't forget Tamarindo is still a very rural feeling town with dirt roads, so with these amenities you get the best of both worlds. Back to the unit itself. I would argue that this is as nice as anyone's home! Beautiful tile, fixtures, wood work and furniture combined with great architecture, balconies, beautiful decor etc. Washer dryer, all appliances in the kitchen, wireless access and etc and all the amenities one needs.

Rebecca and Keith the property managers were very prompt and helpful with all questions, including recommending good cheap local eats and places to visit etc. La Bualas pizza is awesome and very reasonably priced. The lady in front of the Diria at noon in a red truck has awesome casadas for about 4 dollars each and they will fill you up. You can easily spend a lot of money on food in Costa Rica especially if you eat at tourist places. Try and eat at the small local places, sometimes scary but tasty. By the way we all drank the water throughout Costa Rica and were fine

In summary... you can't beat this experience!

Diria Condos a Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Diria Condos over the course of Christmas and the New Year. This facility really is in the centre of activity but quiet, comfortable and all that you could wish for with regard to a vacation in Tamarindo, CR. The condos are across the street from the hotel complex but really only about 150 yards from the beach. The condo area itself is gated with full time security. The grounds are very well maintained and the pool area is glorious within the condo area. There is also a pool in the hotel area with a grassed area for sitting in the sun. Or if you wish, wander out and sit beach front. A small distance down to the left of the beach you might be able to catch a fisherman who will sell you some of his catch and to the right from the Diria is a great spot to surf and play in the water for beginners. Surf lessons can be obtained right on the beach or grab a massage and a drink.

Our condo was adequate offering everything that you see described above. It was so nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit as the beach towels need to be washed everyday and dried. We are a family of four adults, enjoyed the patio furniture and regularly ate on the balcony outdoors...I don't think we even used the dining table! There is plenty of space. Full size appliances...we even had a turkey on Christmas Day! The scenery from your condo is lush and beautiful, bring binocculars. There is a family of howler monkeys in the property, butterflies and hummers outside your window.

Becky and her team are excellent in providing you with all sorts of information. There is an orientation binder in the condo that will give you a good idea of where to eat, what to do, where to go. They will arrange tours for you and provide you with accountable, accurate information. I do a lot of research when I travel and Blue Water Properties is one of the finest rental companies I've had the pleasure to deal with. Becky is fluent in both English and Spanish. Would I stay here again? Without a doubt.
