5/5 Excellent

A friend and I stayed at the hotel for about one week. Our first night a scorpion had gotten in our room and that was quite a surprise! However, we did enjoy our stay. Hotel Mahayana was a small and simple space. Our room was cleaned daily, fresh linen & towels were given, and kitchen utilities were available to us during our stay. I like that the location was walking distance to the beach & market, as well as our other points of interest.

More like an apartment

Great room (should be called an apartment). Great location. Loved the outside front of the room.

Stay in Mahayana

The location is great in the main area of Tamarindo, walking distance to the beach as well. The room was clean and nice, AC was perfect. The only thing for improvement was that the common kitchen was lacking some equipment. Take into your consideration that the pool is much smaller than the pictures, it’s a nice dip when really hot outside.
