Recent Tamarindo reviews

  • Great!

    "My three sons and I just returned from Costa Rica where we spent a week at this great house. I highly recommend it. The house was well stocked with everything we could have needed in the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. The beds were super comfortable, the upstairs deck was my favorite place to have coffee every morning, the house was cleaned every day and the location great. The Lago de Palma Real complex where it's located is adjacent to the JW Marriott so, if you don't feel like cooking or venturing out for meals, you could walk (about 10-15 min) to the hotel. However, the food options in Tamarindo are MUCH better - lots of great restaurants - so we opted to make the drive most nights. Tamarindo is about 15-20 minutes away by car and we ate at The Ocean, Le Coconut (best food), Dragonfly (delicious!) and Pangas Beach Club (best atmosphere). The Hacienda Pinilla complex is huge. You can walk to the Marriott and the Lago de Palma Real pool (which is nice and uncrowded), but not to golf, tennis or the HP Beach Club. We had a car so it wasn't an issue for us at all, but I'm not sure how you get to everything without a vehicle. It was great to have different pool options. We spent some time at all of them - Marriott, Lago de Palma and the Beach Club. Beach Club was lovely, definitely our favorite and the beach there is large, beautiful and not crowded. The Hacienda Pinilla staff were very helpful and booked several excursions for us and I also met the villa owner, Bill, who happened to be at the Beach Club one day and introduced himself. He is super nice and was very accommodating throughout the rental process, too. I would definitely book this house again and thought the location ideal - we visited several other Pacific coast beaches while we were there and thought Playa Avellanas, where the Beach Club is, was the nicest and the proximity to Tamarindo's great restaurants was a big bonus."

  • Fabulous condo and property!!!

    "We came to Tamarindo for our annual girls getaway. This condo was perfect and the property was heavenly! We had breakfast on the terrace daily and the views from the terrace made you feel like you were in a secluded tropical oasis. There's even a view of the ocean as you shower in the master bath. Amazing! The condo had everything we needed: beach towels, washer dryer, laundry detergent, diswasher, huge refrigerator & freezer. The pool areas (2 of them) were at least double to size of the Diria Hotel and 5x better! Restaurants, the beach, and activities were within 5 mins walk of the condo. You don't need a car, unless you plan to get out of the Tamarindo area frequently. There are two mini marts within walking distance and a larger and really nice supermarket 5 mins drive. Taxi there costs $2-$3. I travel alot during the year for work and fun. This is one of the best properties in which I've stayed. I highly recommend this property."

  • Great vacation in Langosta Beach.

    "We stayed in two different units in this building in late January. For three nights we stayed in a ground floor level apartment, for the second half we moved up to a second floor unit. Both apartments have similar two bedroom layouts. Ground floor had a large patio and the second floor had a large balcony. There were plenty of linens, towels, beach towels, fully equiped kitchens, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, comfortable furnishing and air conditioning. They did provide a roll away cot. The building rep Bob Wilson met us when we checked in and gave us useful tips about the condo, the beach cub and the general area. There was a concierge in the lobby during business hours. There was someone stationed at the gate 24 hours a day. We felt completely safe and secure. The street in front is not paved, it is a tar covered rocky road. It is quite busy for such a remote and quiet area. Not heavy traffic, just a light constant stream of cars, buses and motorcycles. The buidling backs onto a nature preserve. We did see monkeys right outside our balcony. There were plenty of birds as well. Howler monkeys early in the morning. One negative of this locations was there were a couple of nights when our bedroom was overcome by a terrible skunk odor. It passed, but it did wake me in the middle of the night. The sliding doors to the balconies and patios don't quite seal so you have to be prepared for visiting bugs (waterbugs and mosquitos) and even small iguanas (or lizards?) scurrying though the apartment. Te groud floor unit was a little worse for the wear. The freezer leaked water from the water dispenser so every time you opened the freezer door water spilled on the kitchen floor. This was annoying. All of the burners on the stovetop did not fire up. The second floor unit had great A/C except for the second bedroom, it was very warm and coldn't be cooled down. The housekeeping staff was excellent. The building is very well maintained. Every morning they sweep the outdoor pathways as well as the inside lobby and staircase. They were painting the lobby when we were there. The elevator was not in service but that was no big deal as we were on the ground level and the second floor."

  • Amazing family vacation in a beautiful location

    "We can not say enough about the wonderful stay we had at IBIS. Stephano and Juan worked non stop to make sure we had everything we needed. We changed our trips at the last minute, and it was never a problem. The beach club was great. We even utilized the spa and workout classes which were really challenging. We will certainly be back with our family of 5."
