    Clearly the best hotel with the most central location in tamarindo .... we were there during the busy week in February so breakfast could be a bit hectic somedays. The grounds and pools on the area on the east side of the main road that splits the property are nicer than the ocean side. so if you want to save some money opt for pool view room unless you have to have a direct ocean view ... if you want to be in an easy walk to everything in tamarindo while staying in the best resort this fun ocean town has to offer ... this is by far the best option

    Amazing Visit

    We had an incredible time while we stayed here in early March of 2019! The team booked us some amazing excursions and the breakfast every morning was too good not to go for seconds! The views from our room were worth the extra charge (its the ocean, I died every time I saw it). I could not recommended this place enough, its a prime spot to all the fun bars & restaurants near by!

    This is the first time in all our travels I’ve ever rated a beach resort a 5 star. Beautiful beach; goes on forever. Beautiful view of a foot hills range. There are 3 villages attached to the resort: Sunset Village right on the ocean and Lagoon and Tropicana Villages across the Grand Boulevard. Sunset Village has 2 types of rooms: Oceanview and Standard. Standard rooms back onto Grand Bvld. Our Ocean View room was perfect. Spacious and well maintained. Rooms include a safe, fridge, coffee maker and WiFi. There’s free WiFi throughout the resort which seems to be a bonus these days. There are 2 pools at Sunset Village; children’s and regular which are never crowded. Breakfast is included which offers a great selection. You can order a la carte for lunch at the Brisa Mar on the resort. Unfortunately the beautiful buffet area only operates at breakfast. The resort owns 4 restaurants found along Grand Boulevard. We ordered pizza from NARI Pizza and Pasta. Excellent. There’s a bar on site. There are many shops along Grand Boulevard. The beach is public so beware if you choose to sit on a lounge chair with an umbrella it will cost you $20.00/day. There are lots of lounge chairs on the resort shaded by the lush vegetation. A true paradise.

    Lovely spot in the middle of it all

    We spent the second half of our week in Costa Rica here, arranged by Pacific Trade Winds. We arrived early evening in the dark but the newly renovated open and bright lobby welcomed us in. Check in was quick and easy. We stayed in the area across the street...and be aware that it is a busy street in the evening! There are staff stopping traffic though so no worries on that account. We stayed in a Family pool view room. The room was clean and comfortable. It’s not high end but we didn’t mind...it was totally adequate for our needs. The resort is beautiful and well tended. The included breakfast was great...lots of selection and lots of fresh fruit...plenty to start the day right! And the view...stunning! The resort is right in the middle of Tamarindo so easy access to all the shops and restaurants in the area. We found the resort restaurants to be mid-range in pricing and the food tasty. This resort is larger than we generally like but we enjoyed our stay here nonetheless. Thanks to all the friendly staff for a lovely few days on the Pacific coast!

    Avoid this hotel!! Staff were rude from check in to the end of stay. Spent more time lecturing me on returning the towel card then welcoming me. Then a local threatened to beat up my son on the beach if he didn’t pay him $20 for a chair. And the security guard saw it and just shrugged his shoulders.
