Reviewed 11 August 2017 via mobile

Wonderful boutique hotel with great service and lovely little rooms. Rooms are clean and comfortable and boats a little outside area for you to enjoy a drink whilst in a hammock. The pool is lovely to relax during the day. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the township and includes parking for those who have driven to Tamarindo. I would also recommend the restaurant which is leased separately and has wonderful fresh food and good service. We spoke to the owner of the hotel, Richard, who was lovely and hospitable. All in all a great experience.

This little boutique hotel is very quiet but close enough to town and shopping. The room and property was very clean. Breakfast was good with cooked to order eggs. I would definitely return to this hotel.

This hotel was perfect for our family. It was walking distant to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. Richard, the owner, introduced himself and seemed to truly care that we had all we needed. He generously allowed us an extended check out time at no cost. I would recommend this hotel to those travelling to Tamarindo. I would bring my family there again on a return trip to the area.

Great location in Tamarindo close to the beach. Rooms are a little on the small side but was very clean and had all we needed so that was ok. Pool was nice and relaxing nothing over the top. Price little high for what we got and we were in the rainy season so should have been discounted. I spoke to several other people staying there and they got a better deal! All in all this is a great place to stay if you want to get off the main road and have some peace and quiet. We may be back if we can get a better rate next time.

Our family spent a week in Tamarindo and stayed here. We had a wonderful experience. Our room was spacious, comfortable, A/C worked well, housekeeping was very good, and daily breakfast was delicious each morning. We are very glad we stayed here instead of a larger hotel because I think we received more personalized service. The staff scheduled three awesome excursions for us: horseback riding, speedboat & snorkeling, rainforest & waterfall. If we return to Tamarindo then we'll stay at Hotel Arco Iris. I only regret we couldn't stay longer.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family
