  • This IS the place to stay!

    "We stayed a week March '16. It is hotter than the hubs of he-double-hockey-sticks, so be prepared! The property has security, very well manicured grounds, is small and quaint, off the beaten path, literally a few steps from the pool, and 1 minute walk through the locked gate to the ocean! The accommodations are great - private laundry rm - soap included, 2 single beds in one bedroom, a queen bed in the master with a master bath. Living room, dining and kitchen are spacious and have all that you need. 2nd bath off the living space that the teenagers used. Lots of towels! Kitchen is well stocked - dish soap included. There is a charcoal grill on the patio, but charcoal is more expensive than at home (Minnesota) and the fluid is a gel that is barely sufficient. The only thing I would improve on the property is the outside chairs as they have probably seen their better days, but were still functional for coffee in the a.m. and wine in the p.m. while listening to the ocean. You will see iguanas and geckos on property, as well as some birds. This property is off the beaten path, but still very close to town - 3 min drive. Be sure to hit the farmers market right down the road from the property on Saturday a.m. - pineapple is to die for! Beach walks are a must - go during low tide to check out the tide pools. If you have a car, go to the town of Guatil to check out the hand made pottery (the office can direct you) - 1st house on the left in town is Edwin - he is fantastic! He will give you a full tour and explanation of their pottery making process that has been handed down over generations. He took us to the backyard and there were iguanas in his mango tree as well as a Howler monkey! Awesome! Ask questions! Be sure to check out Tamarindo Beach, the boat tour in the Nat'l Park is worth it - monkeys eating from our hands and on our heads! This is a very popular area for surfing. The roads suck, period. Rent an SUV for sure. Don't eat at the Bocas restaurant - overpriced for what you get. Cooking in the villa saved us a ton of money, but groceries are not as cheap there as they are here. We went to 3 different grocery stores - all were comparable, but be prepared, they aren't like at home! We did have a couple maintenance issues in our villa - staff was prompt in repairing those items. CR is experiencing a major drought, we ran out of water, they bought 10,000 gallons, pump went out, hand repaired, up and running again. Would stay again!"

  • Third year in a row!

    "... and still the greatest hosts, great setting and accommodations, not sure what else to say that has not been said. If you are looking to visit this part of CR, this is the property to stay at. Doing nothing, doing everything, cooking in or dining out- you can do any or all comfortably and with the assistance of 15+ year residents of Tama as your hosts."

  • Wonderful Stay in Tamarindo

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Matapalo 502 was clean and had a great view. Only issue was that power was out the day we left, but that had noting to do with the property or the management."

  • Very clean and comfortable condo in Tamarindo!

    "We really enjoyed staying at Tamarindo Azul in January 2016. The condo has two large bedrooms with king beds, one bedroom has an attached full bathroom and the other can easily use the full bathroom that is the next door to it in the hall. It was nice being on the top floor of the building, as the view is great and the ceilings are vaulted. We didn't mind the walk to town/beach, which is approximately 1-1.5km, depending on where you're going in town. There are a couple hills on the way back up to the condo, but you can also easily grab a cab for a few bucks on the way back up from town. Every cab knew right where "Tamarindo Azul" was when we decided to take a cab back. We only ever saw one other couple using the pool a couple times, even though it was high season, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves for the week. We also had other family members staying in a nearby property, and we were much happier with Tamarindo Azul than they were with their condo. They had much smaller beds, some plumbing issues in the shower, and a lot of dust because they were at street level."
