    We should have known when we got off the bus and had to step through a construction site with metal cutters sparking overhead that the construction would be a challenge. Like others, no one informed us (or our travel agent) that construction was going on and had been extended. We were informed that it would start at 10 AM in the morning (it started earlier) and end by 5 (it went later) and not happen on Sundays (it did). That made it challenging to really appreciate the great location of this hotel and the beach with jackhammers in the background.

    Aw place & awesome customer service. I fall in love of this place for my vacation . I loved that the workout facility was open 24 hours. The beach was good for surfing and you can watch a beautiful sunset. Excursion: We love to recommend Pininos adventures for any excursion , we had the best time ever doing the Atv tour mountain and beach tour and the sport fishing at flamingo beach .Carlos made our trip unforgettable , also he arrange our round trip Airport transfer ( reliable company) . Do Not book excursion with the hotel concierge ( expensive) they sub contract an Atv company , where they use paved road, we met a couple when we were doing the atv and they were a disappointed ??because they expected off road trail, so Pininos adventures is the way to go folks. See you soon Tamarindo !!

    Beautiful hotel right on Tamarindo beach. Upgrades are being made in preparation for the high season. Despite this, staff accommodated every request with courtesy and a smile. I love Costa Rica and Costa Ricans ??

    My husband and I booked this hotel in August for 2 weeks in December, we were not told about the construction work that would still be going on mid December. We booked a sea view room which was right where all the construction work was going on. We arrived on the evening of the 3rd to be shown to our ground floor, average sized room, which I can’t say overwhelmed us considering we paid a reasonable amount. After a day of listening to the constant sound of hammering and drilling and workmen walking back and forth infront of our window, we asked to move to the other side of the hotel which they were happy to accommodate. Half of the pool was sectioned off for works and the reception area was a complete health and safety hazard. None the less we tried to not let it affect our honeymoon. The breakfast in the mornings was nice with a good selection of hot and cold food. The hotel is set in a good location with lots of bars and restaurants. The beach is beautiful but you get hassled every 3 mins (no exaggeration) to buy wooden bird whistles, necklaces etc it’s really annoying we ended up just ignoring them. The pool and bar staff were friendly and helpful but the security were intimidating and seemed intent on keeping an eye on everyone 24/7. Coming from the uk we were not aware that you couldn’t smoke on the balcony, and there were no “no smoking” signs out there, so security came over and shone his torch up at us shouting something in Spanish. Reception phoned us 10 minutes later to “tell us off” At best I would give this hotel 3 stars taking into account value for money and lack of communication. Won’t return.

    Nice hotel

    The location is great, in front of the ocean and the hotel surrounded with a lot of bars and restaurants. But our room was far away from the reception, we had to cross the street and walk few minutes in a big complex of building and pools. So if you don't book ocean view room take in account it's not view only, your room is not in front of the ocean. Breakfast was good. The constructions didn't affect us, it's only in the ocean view area. The room was very old and need update. The garden looks nice. And the view from the restaurant is beautiful.
