Occidental Tamarindo

toddowensto (San Antonio, Texas) on Jul 25, 2021

Overall the stay was very average. The food and drinks were the most disappointing about our stay. The snack bar was the most disgusting thing I've ever had with cold and bland fries and chicken nuggets. The breakfast was solid but then again it's hard to mess up an omelets that you customize. Lunch was my least favorite meal there and dinner just depends on the night. I will say that the restaurant reservation food was very good.

Do not stay here

The food at this place is horrible.you don’t get your money’s worthy at all. The poolside bar serves cheap alcohol. The service is mediocre and no one seems to know what is going on. The employees seem to run the hotel with no schedule they just do what they want when they feel like it. No one is attentive to guests needs.

Fabulus Stay!

We took our family to this resort and had an amazing time. The open air lobby leads to the pool and ocean beyond, setting the stage for fun in the sun. The staff in every area of the resort were friendly, professional, and very responsive. The food was delicious, although the lunch and dinner buffets didn't offer enough kid-friendly foods. It would be nice to have seen hamburgers or something there every day (the snack bar had burgers which we finally realized and let our grandkids enjoy them there before eating dinner at the buffet). The rooms are a little outdated but they were very clean and all in working order, no complaints there. The resort is just one mile away from Taramindo. We walked there but a shuttle is available roundtrip for $6. I don't have anything negative to say about this place. The pool was beautiful, the ocean just steps away. They had salsa, cha cha, etc dancing classes every afternoon, plus volleyball, water aerobics and other outdoor activities throughout the day. There was live music every evening in the lobby and shows every night in the amphitheater. They have a gym that looked nice and had all the basics but we never used it, choosing to walk into town instead. Both check in and check out were fast and easy. This place is great! We will definitely return in the future.

Less then average

We travel with friends a lot, when ever one couple arrives first, we ask for our room to be close to each other’s. It has always been accommodated, here they said they would try and never did anything. Our room had no hair dryer and cleaning was inconsistent. We didn’t get towels for 2 days after asking 4 times. Any other all inclusive resort mean all food and drinks are included. Here the restaurants on site will only let you pick one of the two, once per every 3 day stay. We picked an Italian restaurant and it was empty and we’re not serving things noted on the menu.
