Service staff was excellent. Kevin was our waiter a few time and went above and beyond our expectations. Security and bell-boys were always smiling (Pura Vida) and willing to help us out.

Wash cloths and hand towel shortage

Evidently they have a shortage of wash cloths and hand towels. It got to the point where we had to hide them from the cleaning staff, as they would take them and not replace them. We were also awakened by monkeys several nights. I understand there is no way to control this, just be prepared.

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.
