Perfect location in Tamarindo

We stayed near the adult pool, which was quite and away from the bustle of the main street, but just a short walk to the main pool/beach area. I would recommend the adult pool if you are looking for quiet. Best location in town with a number of restaurants within blocks and two mini markets within a block. The private beach access is great with lounge chairs (included) in a grassy area next to the beach. If you want chairs on the beach, they are available from an outside vendor for 2 for $12/day. Great breakfast as well. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Amazing Honeymoon!

This place was absolutely amazing! The staff was very helpful and were able to accommodate our every need...even moving from a 2 queen "hotel type" room (still nice) to a gorgeous king garden view suite without any surcharge! They even moved our luggage. The food was great (5 different restaurants to choose from among numerous other local places), the pools were clean and up kept, and of course the ocean was even more amazing! We stayed March 7th - 14th. Excellent weather that time if year (80s - 90s and sunny everyday)! We both want to go back without a doubt. We really can't say enough about how amazing it was...you gotta try it yourselves!

Family vacation

This is a very nice hotel that is divided in two locations, the main area with the ocean view rooms and 2 pools, and the other one across the street with 2 big pool and garden view rooms. The location is great with restaurants and shopping area around the hotel. The hotel has 4 nice pools, so neither of them are too crowded. The beach is beautiful, although you have to rent the chairs at the beach, whereas other 4-star hotels include them, but that's not a problem. What I didn't like was that I tried to give a small snack to my girls (4 and 1 year old) at the pool area, sitting in the pool chairs, and by snack I mean a fruit and a bag of chips, and the security officer told us that we couldn't eat anything outside of the restaurant, not even at the garden!!! So my 3-star rating is because of that - I have stayed at other beach hotels that doesn't prohibit you from having a snack at the pool area. Other than that everything was great!

Great romantic getaway!

The staff at the restaurant and the tourist trip desk were the most friendly staff we have ever met. The staff at the front desk could have been a bit more friendly, sometimes they came off as too busy to help or answer questions. The hotel was in the utmost best location, around other great restaurants and bars. It was right on the most beautiful beach with so much to do, horseback riding, jet skiing, even boat rides to see wild life! We must say that our favorite place to be while in Costa Rica was the resort itself. The beach, pool and the El Diria restaurant had wonderful food and such an exquisite view. The resort has the most wonderful wait staff who were nothing but helpful and courteous to us. Overall we highly recommend El Diria resort and will definitely be back sooner than later!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Utilize the hotel to book day trips. They offered so much to do for a reasonable price. There was anything from 2 hour boat trips to view wildlife to full day trips to Nicaragua.

Great location, fun stuff to do and a fantastic view

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week with my husband and 8 year old son. We had a great time at the hotel AND in the town of Tamarindo, which is walking distance. This hotel is right on the main drag, so if you do not like lots of people, it may not be for you. There are many dining options outside of the hotel. We did zip lining, horseback riding and surfing. All of these activities were close to the hotel. I wouldnt recommend this location if you plan to go to the volcano, since it is a 4 hour drive on bumpy roads. We were happy as clams staying 8 days in Tamarindo! Best views I have EVER SEEN! Get an ocean view room, its WORTH EVERY PENNY!

This is one of the few places that actually has a night life- lots of bars in town, probably to cater to the young surfers!

Decent.

Am 20 years old. Went with a few friends from college. Was a lot of fun but the hotel was nothing incredible. Had everything needed, sick location, and room was OK. Service was weird; guy at front desk was pretty odd and even condescending at times. Despite that negative, we met a bellman who was helpful with everything. Told us places to go out to eat, to party, and was otherwise very friendly. Food at the hotel was nothing special either. Its a good time but you will not be blown away by the hotel.

Best Resort in Tamarindo

Very nice people. Beautiful swimming pools and pool bar. Fantastic location, right in the middle of everything. The clubs are close by. The hotel is right on the beach and offered a wide variety of tours. I did the Scuba Diving, ATV, Horse Riding and Zip Lining tours. The price is very good. The rooms are clean and big. The only thing I didnt like is that it is not "All Inclusive" but it does provide free breakfast which is very delicious.

There is a day for each club. Ask around the local people what club is good each different day, so you dont miss the party.
