    2019 Summer Vacation

    The positives: the location and the sunsets are great. The front desk and cleaning staff are also great. We had a late lunch at Gallo Fino and the food was very good. They also provide complimentary breakfast in this restaurant. The cons: Hotel is in major reconstruction and upgrade. Let your visitors know! The construction crew was traipsing wheel barrows of cement through the lobby from resort across the street through the lobby into the open air restaurant. The beach area is shared with surfers; surfing classes can be purchased at hotel desk. Beachfront is also shared with vendors for Horseback riding on the beach. The horses do their business right on the shore.

    First - some staff are great. the cleaning staff in particular are very helpful, even if they dont speak English. The sunsets are great. the beach area is for surfers - the water is way too choppy most of the time for swimming and there are a lot of surfers who dont care about swimmers.. we saw some collisions. They have 2 sections, one on the beach and another across the road. There is construction going on in the restaurant area on the beach - its noisy with people welding, cutting reinforcement rods, banging etc. - and this is not mentioned on their website. The kids pool is dirty with all sorts of debris, while the beachside adult pool has noise happening right in front of it. The hotel has resort prices but doesnt offer comp amenities such as kayaks/non-motorised stuff. The pool across the road is larger and has a pool side bar with expensive drinks (virgin pina colada is US $6-7) Restaurant prices are very high for the quality and service. the pizza place outside (nari) has good food. beach front service is horrible - we had waiters who didnt speak English and waitresses that just didnt care to get our order right, or pay attention when we wanted the bill. Breakfast is adequate for a resort, but nothing special. Your best bet for food is outside the resort. there are plenty of options. Wifi is OK - sometimes very slow.

    Don’t do it!

    This hotel is mediocre at best and they charge resort style prices for everything. The location is the only good thing about this place. The rooms are very basic and small and are not worth the high price. They need serious updating. The entire place is under construction with tons of noise and construction workers walking everywhere. They don’t have a single drinking fountain or water station anywhere on premise (not even in the gym). I asked the front desk where I could find water and the lady looked at me like I had 3 eyes. As I’m writing this(trying to sleep) I’m listening to super loud music right outside my door. It literally sounds like the band from the restaurant across the street is playing in my bathroom. I also question the security of this place, there are a lot of shady characters walking around Tamarindo and it doesn’t feel like they do a good job of protecting the property. There is only 1 guard in the front helping people cross the street. My recommendation is don’t waste your money staying here. If you want a secure, super nice hotel stay at the Marriott 10 minutes away. It is a million times better and basically the same price. You can always drive to Tamarindo and enjoy the location, site seeing, and dining but have a nice room to go back to that you feel safe. Lastly, the staff here is so unfriendly. Nobody makes eye contact with you or says hi. I would never stay here again!

    Not worth the price

    Nice hotel and beautiful beach, but...intermittent WiFi. intermittent hot water, overpriced food. Worst was the construction: drills and circular saws 15’ away as we ate lunch, no beach access for two of our four days except over the stone wall and a stack of sand bags (not good for my 77 year old MIL), scaffolding all around the pool. Basically it’s an ok hotel with luxury prices. I’m sure that by December it’ll look really nice, but if you’re coming in August or September of 2019 you might want to reschedule.

    Building site

    OK some acpects of this hotel are Good, staff, location of hotel and the pools. We booked this hotel so we could enjoy the beach front bar and restaurant but it was all closed and a building siteinstead All the guest have to cross the road and eat breakfast at the road side restaurant with a limited space of seating. It is 10 meters away from the road so your sharing breakfasts with buses and lorries spewing out fumes. You can still use the sun beds at the beach side as long as the numatic drills and the grinders and hammering don't bother you. I was thirsty after sitting at the beach side and when asked for water I had to go out of the hotel and cross the road to another restaurant for a glass of water. The dissapointing part was booking. Com or the hotel never told us regarding the building works prior to our trip. Not what I expected for £250 a night. So as you can see my my reviews are based on my stay at the time of my holiday, so in a couple of months time it will be up and running and you may never know any diffrance and will have a fantastic time enjoying the beach front restaurants and bar.
