Let me just say, my Costa Rica experience would have been completely different had my mom and I not stayed at Laguna del Cocodrilo. The very beginning of our stay was a little rocky since my bag (American Airlines) didn't make it to Tamarindo and was stuck in Miami (our connecting flight) in addition to our hotel reservation seeming like...

I have never written a negative review on Trip Advisor before and am not excited to do so now. But I had such a terrible experience with this hotel that I simply felt compelled to share my experience and also wanted to make sure other people were warned about this hotel's cancellation policy and complete disregard for helping customers in...

Be forewarned, most rooms don't have a bathroom door!!! We could hear a couple a few rooms over getting their freak on, that's how paper thin the walls are. They are super cheap people. The hotel itself has so much potential to be amazing, it's just in the wring hands.The receptionist attitude is horrible and the owner's is even worst!...

The Hotel was perfect for my stay in Tamarindo. It is located right on the beach and is walking distance from the mainstream where all the shops, bars, and souvenir shops are located. I was greeted by Patricia who was quite a delight. She knew I was traveling alone and immediately offered me insight on activities I could join that...

Don't let the missing fancy luxuries fool you; THIS is the place to be. Great staff. Amazing French bakery. Views to die for. Minutes from the centre far enough away from the maddening crowds but a 6-7 minute walk to the centre of the action). The real deal. The real experience. If buffets and non-stop party crowds are your thing,...

We used Tamarindo as our stop on the day of our flight in and the night before our flight out of Costa Rica due to the proximity to Liberia. Our stay here was perfect - no need to get into a car, with a relaxing garden, the beach right there and a variety of stores and restaurants nearby. Rooms were...

First off, Tamarindo is kind of a touristy place, so don't expect your hotel dollars to go as far as elsewhere in Costa Rica. Although not perfect, I thought it was pretty good value. Some random points: The room: I actually thought it was very clean despite what some other reviews have stated. No roaches although lots of mosquitoes. I...

This hotel is nothing fancy, but the location is fantastic! Just a short walk from town and right on the beach - doesn't get much better than that! We rolled in early and the gal at the front was as friendly and accommodating as one could want. We dropped off our bags and walked out the back to the beach....

The exterior of this hotel really doesn't do it justice. However, once you walk down the little stairwell to the front desk, we were pleasantly pleased. Trisha was very friendly and thorough even letting us see the available room before booking. We had a basic, but comfortable room with sliding glass door that walked right out to the courtyard complete...
