I would like to start by saying on how it was nice Costa Rica is a "surf" orientated country. After saying that. I am very, very, very,, very disappointed on how my wife and we're treated at the Occidental resort in Tamarindo...... The service: Nobody, and I mean nobody in this resort would ever smile at you and ask you...

I would never go back... When you go to an all inclusive you expect to be able to eat drink and entertain yourself on the resort. It is what you're paying the premium price for! This resort has a lot of fails in that regard. Bar services - There is no bar on the resort open until 10am. There is...

I will start by saying that my girlfriend and I are not complainers and don't have extremely high expectations. We have stayed at Barcelo properties in Riviera Maya and were extremely impressed so we thought it was a no brainer to stay at Barcelo for our first visit to Costa Rica. We travel a lot so we do have many...

We stayed here for 7 nights. Upon arrival it would have been nice to have been greeted with a damp cloth and a nice cool drink after a long day of travel. The beach and pool area is great. The food is ok and lots of it. To get a drink at the bar takes forever as there is only...

Every night we were provided different dinner for us, the food was unique. Rooms were very clean and big. The animation is at the highest level – they were organizing a variety of activities...

This is our second time at the Occidental Tamarindo, but our first visit with a toddler. The staff there is always very friendly and helpful. Alberto in the restaurant was always very kind to my son and always took time to talk to him at every meal. The food is average for Costa Rica. The food isn't bad but I...

We stayed here for 7 nights at the end of January and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the building next to the spa and frequently saw the howler monkeys outside our balcony in earlier morning or evening. Our room was well decorated and clean with more than adequate hot water. The only down fall was the wifi not reaching...

My husband, myself and another couple stayed here from Dec. 1st. -11th. We were really excited about visiting Costa Rica which had been too expensive from where we live until I came upon a deal that seemed to good to be true last May. The resort is lovely, well maintained, and being renovated slowly to bring it up to date....

Stayed one week from Jan 13 to 20. Rooms are nice. Beach is beautiful. A few reviews said that it was a surfer beach but my husband and I enjoyed it very much. The food was awesome!! My favorite was breakfast. Since we stayed 6 nights we were allowed two sit down diners. The steak was delicious. The service is...

As the only all - inclusive resort in Tamarindo the Occidental is pretty good. It's clean with exceptionally friendly service (everyone in Costa Rica was very friendly) and it's very safe (you can leave your non - valuables by the pool and they will be ok all day). Lots of pool chairs although the ones in the shade get grabbed...

“4510/11 have great views but beside the entertainment so until 10pm noise is inevitable.”
