We were hit by rain, wind, thunder and lightening. We were without power and water for 3 days. The hotel ran out of umbrella's for their guests but gave all the employees umbrella's. My husband has a medical device that he needs in order to breath while asleep, he was unable to use that. We asked to be comped and were told the hotel manager would have to speak to Travelocity. I emailed Travelocity 4 days ago concerning this matter and have still not received an answer.

On the beach, beautiful sunsets

Pros: On the beach, good breakfast.
Cons: Offered a buffet lunch for extra cost.
Location: Tamarindo steps from the hotel and many places to eat.
We had the beachfront premium, wouldn't have done it any other way, steps to the beach and our lounge chairs (put a towel on it In the front). Good selection of breakfast, open till 1030A if you want to sleep in. Too bad you couldn't of been offered a buffet lunch as their restaurant was just O.K. We ate in town mostly just steps away. Mattress firm and sheets a little bleachy smelling, nothing terrible. Room was perfectly clean daily , shower large, water a little hard to get it adjusted but once you found out the trick it was fine. The little things didn't matter to my husband and I.. we will definitely go back. Everyone was kind and very helpful.

Diria Tamarindo

Pros: There was so much to do on the property and you could book excursions right at the hotel. You could walk to all the bars and restaurants easily.
Location: The food in Tamarindo was excellent. So many great restaurants. We highly recommend Pura Adventura for zip lining.
The property was beautiful. Excellent views of the ocean and lovely sunsets every night. The staff was so friendly and the daily free breakfast was delicious!

Decent, safe, with a great view.

The property was well maintained and pleasant to be at. However, none of the staff seemed eager to help. The room sometimes smelled of sewage and the balcony doors wouldn't latch properly. The property felt secure. The first half of the trip was a joke rental and was stellar in comparison. Same nightly rate with breakfast etc. the town is easy enough to walk and I enjoyed the beach at other beach clubs as well.

Memorable Vacation

We stayed in the adult section only and we loved it. The manicured garden/landscaping was of the best we have seen. We will definitely be going back. The people are so kind, they can't do enough for you.

Perfect location

Pros: Location, beach
Cons: No patio or view. Breakfast could be much better.
Location: Many restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Beach front location is a plus.
I am super happy I picked this hotel. The location was perfect, within walking distance to everything. I did not see any other hotel with a better location. The staff was super friendly and helpful especially with tours. Mr. Ruiz behind tour desk was excellent with all of our needs. The beach view was gorgeous. The rooms were not super luxurious, but clean and pretty. Room was very close to beach. I think I got a super deal. If I return to Tamarindo, Costa Rica I will definitely stay here. I would just upgrade to room with Ocean view as my room had no patio or view at all.

Nice resort, terrible service and staff

Pros: Aesthetics, right on the beach
Cons: Train staff better
Location: Get a massage right on the beach, go to Panga's for lunch or dinner on the beach
I would recommend this hotel solely because it's aesthetically a beautiful resort, and it's right on the beach. However, the staff are generally very unhelpful and unfriendly. The service wasn't even close to what we received at our hotels in Costa Rica. One instance was when we discovered there were large red ants and insects in OUR room, we asked to change our room, and though the hotel was not nearly at capacity, they refused to do so and instead offered us an upgrade AT OUR CHARGE. This truly blew our mind. Other instances were when we called to report that the shower water was not getting hot, they told us they'd return in 5 minutes to fix it and instead knocked on our door at midnight when we were already asleep. Overall, I did not enjoy my stay here and believe we paid for a lot more than we actually received.
