    Crystal Sands Is Amazing

    Our checkin was confusing as i tried to call # listed on reservation and was out of order. Only by our ability to communicate with guard, after he called mgmt, did we know that we had to go to an office to pick up our keys. After that we entered our condo on the third floor and I have to say it is the best place I have ever stayed. This unit was perfect in every way had more space than we could ever need was perfectly clean perfectly stocked. The views are great although I wish they would cut down a tree that blocks some of the Oceanview.... that is my only complaint and I highly highly recommend this condo. very rarely do you find a unit that is comfortable clean well stocked furnished with modern furniture and kitchen with Tupperware in a place that makes you feel like your hard work payed off and you can really relax and feel safe. The unit is so large I kept losing my husband! The only thing missing from the unit in my opinion was toiletries as they only provided little bars of soap. The pool which is on the east side of the unit is small, nothing special, but I'm not a pool person. The three different Oceanview decks kept my attention. If I can afford it i will definitely stay here again as it was worth every penny.

    Great condo, but not a hotel

    This place was enormous. I mean huge. One king bedroom, one with two doubles, one daybed and a couch that someone could easily sleep on. The dining room table seats six, but could easily seat eight. There are closets everywhere. It was very clean and the sheets were super soft. We had a great time. That said, this is more like an AirBnB rental than a hotel, and you should think of it that way. There's an up-to-date kitchen for cooking if you intend to stick around, but no room service. They do provide beach towels, but it's BYO for things like shampoo, etc. There's a lovely, clean pool, but there's no bar. There's a gorgeous beach to look at, but you can't swim there--for swimming, you'll need to go about half a mile down the road to find a beach where there is sand rather than rocks. If that's the kind of vacation you like (it's the kind we like), you'll be very happy at Crystal Sands. If you're looking for "full service," try something else.

    Unbelievably spacious and modern 3-bedroom condo

    We stayed in a 3-bedroom condo unit at Crystal Sands. The defining feature is that it was unbelievably spacious. 2 of bedrooms had a king-size bed and 1 of the bedrooms had 2 queen size beds. Each bedroom had a walk-in closet. It was a 2-level condo with balconies on both levels, one of which had a hot tub. There was a large kitchen and, separately, a large bar area. The dining had seats for 8, but could have sat at least 12. There were 6 of us in this condo -- so we had a LOT of breathing room. :) Other than that, we got 1 garage parking space. The condo is directly on the beach, but the beach right behind is rocky and not very swimmable. You can walk on the beach to the swimmable Tamarindo beach, it is a 10 minute walk. There was a small grocery store within walking distance, but besides that, everything else was in the town of Tamarindo.

    Fint leilighetshotell nær privat strand

    Vi havnet her ved en tilfeldighet, grunnet en dobbel booking. Expedia var utrolig hjelpsomme og fant dette lelighetshotellet. Vår leilighet var enorm, ryddig og utrolig fin, med havutsikt på den flotte verandaen. Det er ikke et hotell, men kjøper du inn din egen frokost har du en flott kjøkken å lage den på og en super veranda til å nyte morgenkaffen. Vil anebafle dette stedet spesielt til familier og grupper.

    Pros: Stor og god plass i leligheten, koselig, uberørt, privat strand. Litt unna Tamarindos natteliv.

    Location: Crystal Sands ligger litt utafor sentrum av Tamarindo, men det er enten en kort 5-6 dollars taxitur unna, eller en 15-20 minutters spasertur.
