Trish is great! Very pragmatic and very sweet. I am a single woman am traveling with my 13 and 4 year old boys. I do not spend a lot on hotels as my kids are adventure seekers (I need to budget for that) and we don't spend a lot of time in the room. I booked this hotel because it...

Room was pleasant with view of ocean (actually about a one block walk down a path). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bed was so so. Howler monkeys in the trees at breakfast. Croissants were wonderful! For a longer stay, I would go for a place with a fridge.

It's not luxurious, but it has everything else you need. Bring your own toiletries. Do not flush toilet paper down the toilet, it will clog. The French bakery is nice for breakfast. It's a tropical forest so bring LOTS of sunblock and mosquito spray! The rooms will have little creepy crawlers lurking around, but what do you expect, it is...

We live in Cota Rica and as for most Ticos, prices for tourists are generally not adapted to tico budget...But we had to stay around Tamarindo for this night and picked Laguna del Cocodrilo for it's helpul reservation procedure with the owner. We did not regret at all. The location close to the beach was perfect for us (certainly the...

Great beach location, and such friendly staff. The lady at front desk, Trish, was divine. Gave us maps and went through them showing best shops and restaurants. Found us adapter plug, helped with whatever request / information we asked for. The in house bakery does great breakfast and coffees. Beautiful views, right on the lagoon and beach. There really are...

As others have noted, cocodrillo is in a prime location in tamarindo, on the beach and close to everything. The staff and owners could not be nicer, friendlier or more helpful. The bakery is awesome. However... Our room, ocean view on the first floor, needed an upgrade. It had that not so fresh feeling, from the thin mattress on the...

Our stay at this hotel was great, not only is the location right by the beach (private path from the hotel) but it's a clean hotel surrounded by wildlife. Upon arrival, Patricia greeted us with a smile and gave us information about Tamarindo and local tours (highly recommend the Laguna boat tour @ $35/person). The hotel is located on the...

It was nice being a 5 minute walk from the main downtown hustle and bustle if you're looking for a bit of peace and quiet in a busy tourist area. Private path to the beach was really nice. Clean, good A/C for the peak hot hours, lovely garden area to sit and relax in hammocks, safe, secure, and the French...

My wife and I travelled to CR for the first time in February, and chose Hotel la Laguna del Cocodrilo as our last stop because of the short distance from the Liberia airport. Shortly after our arrival, we realized we had found a very special place. This small hotel is located a perfect distance from the Tamarindo strip. Quiet, but...

I headed to Tamarindo to surf and friends of mine warned me that Tamarindo is a loud, busy, party town. Which wasn't what I was looking for, I just wanted to surf and relax. Tamarindo is busy, however, Hotel Cocodrilo is a tranquil oasis on the end of the commercial district of the town. Once you step inside you feel...
