My husband and I unexpectedly had a few delays on our trip to Costa Rica. We decided to visit Tamarindo and had to book a hotel last minute. Tamarindo Bay Boutique were extremely accommodating! It is a beautiful hotel, modern rooms, peaceful common areas, and incredible staff. They are eco-friendly and just a short walk to the beach. If you have mobility issues, however, it may be a bit of a rocky walk, but otherwise it was a quick and easy trip to get to the main shops and Beach.

This was our second stay at Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel, just got back from our 6 night trip. Not much else can be said about this hotel, one of the best run places in Tamarindo. If you want a relaxing stay at a great value then this is the place. No need for a car, everything is within a short walk. Our dogs are happy we are home but I wish we were still there. Need to start thinking about our next stay at this wonderful place.

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel in July/August 2017.

It is not luxurious, but they do every thing really really well.

The hotel and rooms are spotless and they work very hard to keep it that way. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with large bathrooms and plenty of storage/closet space.

There is a very nice pool and a terrific outdoor lounging area under a roof with overhead fans - perfect place to laze away part of an afternoon or evening.

The location is ideal - about 5 or 10 minutes from beaches and lots of good restaurants, but far enough away that you are not aware of the noise and craziness of downtown.

The owners were around most days and were fun to talk to and learn about the area and Costa Rica.

Best of all was Marie, who looked after the guests. She was around almost every day and was always available to chat, give advice, book tours or deal with crises. I broke a tooth on Monday and was in the dentist chair at 9:30 Tuesday morning.

The moment we walked onto this property , it was clear that this hotel is a cut above all the rest! This is a sanctuary of peace and beauty, but what makes it truly special is Maria! She made us feel cared for throughout our 5 night stay. Beginning with the very thorough orientation,she was there for us, providing us with whatever we needed. Breakfast was lovely each day. The pool was just what we needed after a hot day of adventure . Our room! Do yourself a favor and get the Ananda Suite! Fantastic comfy bed, huge separate bathroom with an amazing rain shower! Our own secluded sanctuary! Because of my job I stay in a lot of hotels, and I can honestly say this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Throughout the property you can see all the little details , designed for your comfort . Thank you Maria, BathSheba and the rest of the staff for making our 20 year wedding anniversary unforgettable! We will be back!

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!
