  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Best view in Tamarindo, Booking again next year

    "Rating Details: 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. Reviewer Comments: The best feature after the view is the infinity pool, which was the perfect temperature. We were a group of 12, mostly active senior couples, from NY, CA , SC and London, getting together to enjoy a vacation in a beautiful spot. We all enjoyed the 2-hr trip up the estuary viewing crocs, howler monkeys, many species of bird and sea creatures.<br> The layout of the house affords exceptional privacy, high-end details and furnishings, and very helpful caretakers who took care of our every need and question. Tennis was walking distance with excellent facilities. Favorite restaurant was Nogie's on the beachfront; incredibly fresh seafood, good service, moderate prices, great view - ate there three times!"

  • A True Paradise, You Never Want To Leave

    "The moment I walked through the door of this beautiful condo, I knew I was in the most perfect place I have ever vacationed. It was so spacious, beautifully furnished, including a kitchen with everything needed. looking out the glass doors was a patio, with a large table and comfortable chairs, where we enjoyed having our breakfast every morning the gardens around us were like being in Eden. Across the well maintained grounds was a beautiful lagoon pool with swim up bar. The security was excellent too, which means everything today! The beach is across the street, the best restaurants, and shopping are in walking distance. I have traveled throughout the world, and stayed in many beautiful condos, but I must say this is a favorite! I will plan to travel to Costa Rica again, and will only stay in this rental, and have already recommended it to all my family and friends! Patti Russell, San Antonio, Texas"
