Me and my buddies just got back from a surfing trip to Costa Rica and it was awesome. The Vista Villas gave us everything we needed for our surf vacation. The hotel is literally across the street from the prime surf breaks in Tamarindo. Every morning we grabbed our boards and cruised out to the beach. A lot of cool...

The Good: The staff was awesome, very friendly. Our room was large and had a nice view of the beach and good kitchen. It is a very short walk across the street and trail to the beach itself. Surfboard rentals and lessons can be purchased from the surf school right in front of the hotel which was amazing (we were...

Living in Costa Rica and it being rainy season, we thought we'd take a mini vaca. Wonderful place with good rates. Pizza was great. Staff friendly, esp Sara & Floribeth. Only regret was, I wished we had asked when we made reservations if there was any noisy work being done, as all we wanted to do was sit and read...

I stayed here with my family in August 2012 for few nights and the rooms are pretty big and nice and clean. We had a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave and all the utensils which helped us to store food and eat whenever the boys got hungry. The restaurant is very nice and all the people who work there are...

We are grateful for your praise and are very happy that your suite was comfortable during your stay. The kitchens really are convenient when a night out at a restaurant isn’t in the plans. Of course, our restaurant offers a full menu of international flavors for those times you prefer to be cooked and catered to. Our staff will welcome...

We spent 6 days at the V Villas in Tamarindo for the 5th in 14 years time this past September. The best surf trip ever! The folks at the Vista Villas couldn't be any better.

Me and my friend checked out a few different cabinas in downtown Tamarindo and none were at the standard of quality and cleanliness that Vista Villas gaves us. The staff were all friendly. Yesenia kept our rooms very clean and the hotel responded to our guest needs very fast. Would definelty go back there.
