Spent 3 nights here in late July 2017 with my wife. We're 30 and spent our time wanting to surf, spend a little time on the beach, dive and finally get a chance to read our books.

- we were upgraded to the twin pool view room from a king. Lovely large, open space. Well thought out rooms (e.g fridge in your room, with bottle to fill up water from communal water fountain, wine glasses, ice box)
- beds comfortable with AC and fan.
- perfectly clean, beach towels available
- breakfast was good: yogurt, muffins, home made banana or cinnamon bread, eggs for order, toast, coffee, orange juice, some cooked stuff (can't recall).
- you can borrow stuff from the hotel for free - including bikes, boogie boards, and a few other things (cant recall)
- communal area around the pool is comfortable with nice seating, beanie bags, honor bar
- locked gated entry and free parking
- Marie (who manages the place), is really nice and helpful. Gave us a little tour at the beginning, had (great) recommendations for local restaurants (all within 5 to 7 mins walk). She remained attentive throughout our stay.

Things to improve:
- nothing really. As a preferential thing, for those of you who like perhaps the anonymity of a hotel where you can "get lost" in the grounds is not going to happen here. It's an intimate place, but not intrusive in my opinion.

Thanks for the excellent stay!

I was concerned about booking a hotel in Tamarindo that wasn't directly on the beach...I was more than rewarded for taking the risk and staying at the Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel, just a five-minute walk from the oceanfront. The rooms were immaculate and modern. The list of amenities, such as made-to-order breakfasts, bicycles available for use, and an open-air terrace goes on and on. But the best part, by far, was the attentive concierge service by Marie and Bathsheba. They answered every question, arranged massage appointments and surf classes, showed us shortcuts through town, etc. I have had the opportunity to travel extensively and I've never received such dedicated service from the hosts.

Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel is a beautiful oasis in Tamarindo. The entire place is very tranquil and unique. Our visit was made exceptional by Marie and Bathsheba, who went above and beyond our expectations with great advice and recommendations. From our check in at the gorgeous poolside lounge to the delicious, fresh made breakfast every morning, it made us have trouble leaving! The rooms are clean and very comfortable and have a cool, calming energy to them. We also love that they donate money to animal rescue help control the pet population. We cannot wait to return.

My husband and I stayed at the Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel for the second part of our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it! Our room was gorgeous and cool, the hotel itself was beautiful and the breakfast was divine. I am vegan and had plenty to eat. All the staff were wonderful as well - recommending restaurants, making reservations, booking transfers and more. Bathsheba, one of the owners, was also vegan and even gave me a bag to help make my own almond milk at home - so sweet! We had plenty of time to read, write and relax and go to the beach and always felt welcome. We hope to go back one day!
