I found the owners to be as nice as you can find. What ever we needed was done right away. Rooms very reasonable. This is not a Hilton but a really nice local hotel. Rooms were more than adequate with flat screen TV. Cleaning daily.Call and longer stays you can negotiate a little. Grounds were well kept and kind of...

We stayed here this past July with our 6 year old and our 6 month old sons. We had a great time and it was a very comfortable. Simona, her family and her staff were all very hospitable and wonderful to stay with. We would definitely come back.

Someone we met in Tamarindo recommended it and I am happy she did! The bungalow was clean and well decorated. The A/C worked well. The typical breakfast (Gallo pinto) was excellent. It was very close to the beach and the pool area was beautiful. It was a safe and quiet place to stay. My family, especially my children ( 8...

We were booked here through our Spanish school and didn't even know where we were staying until a week before. We read the reviews and hoped for the best. I have to say, that while it is not a flashy, waterfront condo, the Hotel Luna Llena was a quaint and authentic Costa Rican experience for us. Are there places in...

For a personalized unique experience at Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica, stay at this family owned eco-friendly resort located only two blocks away from the beach and main street in Tamarindo. The bungalows are awesome, two-floor, with dual A/C, the king bed has memory-foam mattress and pillows, the best bed ever! Big bathroom, nice furnished kitchen, big fridge, microwave, gas stove,...

My husband and I chose to stay here based on the pictures. It was kind if kitschy and cute... Totally our style. We loved that it had a restaurant and a wet bar. Sold. I was also excited about the "orthopedic" bed. So the property is pretty adorable. However when we where there the evening restaurant wasn't open and neither...

It has been a while ago since we went here, November 2007 but I wanted to include this wonderful place in my reviews as it is a place to remember. Cabannas are very practically set up, breakfast is very good - lots of nice fresh fruits in the morning. Tamarindo is amazing, with it's jungle. howling monkeys and beautiful beaches!

No love here. We stayed here for two nights as part of a week long trip through Costa Rica. Perhaps, for the price it is adequate. The room was clean but insects were a problem. The lack of privacy was annoying and the bed was uncomfortable, lacking a mattress pad. The lock on the door was not reassuring. The pool...

When we got to the front desk there was nobody to great us. We had to wait like 15min until somebody came. The rooms are ok (cozy somehow) but the matress are really hard and the pillows really low, therefore is difficult to fall sleep. There are red ants walking in the walls, but they are not sooo many as...

We stayed here in bungalow #2 for a week in early March 2013 and really enjoyed it. Such a friendly French? family runs the place. The owner is an activist for the monkey population and their sad interface with all the dangerous electrical line so tempting to run across. The breakfasts were tasty, in a lovely setting. Pool was very...
