This is a small hotel, with small and cozy rooms. The rooms are new, with good quality furniture and a mini-fridge with a mini-bar. We rented one of the small cottage style rooms and it was comfortable, quiet. Enjoyed the hammock by the room, watching the iguana warming up in the sun and posing for our cameras. The breakfast is...

we liked this hotel because it was far enough out of town to keep the volume low but close enough to walk. The only downsides were the large opening at the top of the sliding door to the room which let in bugs, misquotes and a cockroach. fixed that the last night with a towel shoved up there but it...

We stayed here for four nights and could not have been happier with our decision. We found the hotel from other reviewers online and Hotel Arco Iris did not disappoint. The receptionist (ours was Gerline) was super helpful and answered all of our questions. She and the other receptionist (I forgot his name, I apologize) made great recommendations for activities,...

Very personal check-in and escort to our room. Free parking is helpful in this part of Tamarindo. Tiny rooms but very clean and modern. Seasons restaurant is very good. Free breakfast with good coffee, fruit and omelets. Internet in rooms connect but is not always functional. Friendly iguanas are everywhere, and they like bananas and watermelon.

I've been to Tamarindo 4 times but this recent visit was my first stay at Hotel Arco Iris. I loved it. The location is great. Its peaceful and secluded but its only a 5 minute walk to the beach and the main commercial strip. The room was updated, clean, and the air conditioning worked great. The Seasons restaurant (on site)...

We stayed here for 3 nights and the place was just what we needed. It was clean, the AC worked well, decent breakfast, walk to the beach. The Seasons restaurant was a definite bonus! It was not cheap, but average for the area

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel for two weeks. We had an absolutely wonderful time there. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The pool was quiet and well maintained with comfortable seating options. We ate at the on-site restaurant several times and were very pleased with our meals. We enjoyed walking into town and to the...

Amazing! Rooms are so nice. About a 5 minute walk to center of town and the beach. Not far at all. Pool is great. Breakfast is included. Only spent one night but wish we could have stayed longer. If I go back to Tamarindo I'm definitely staying here again!
