The Perfect Tamarindo Resort
We considered a few resorts for our 5 day “parents escape” and we are SO glad we chose Capitan Suiza over the others (jardin, the coast, etc). Pictures don’t do this place justice. It is perfectly situated between the busy Tamarindo town and the quiet Langosta beach so that it’s close walking distance to restaurants/shops/bars but on a MUCH less crowded part of the beach. It was *right* on the shoreline and we loved eating the amazing complimentary breakfast in the open air restaurant w ocean views, evening walks through the tidepools and sitting on the padded loungers reading in the shade. We had an end unit ground floor room (27) which was spacious, private and comfortable. The tile and wood furniture added to the authentic feel. The entire property is immaculate and the lush gardens are so well kept they really added to the Costa Rican jungle vibes and made the place feel so private and luxurious. There are so many things about this resort that made for a perfect stay and it was so clear to us how much care and attention to detail the staff give. The *only* criticism we could give is that our bed was a bit hard and we missed having a bath robe. Otherwise- 10/10! We will absolutely be back!

Best place to stay in Tamarindo
Best hotel in Tamarindo! A little outside of town which allows for a more private beach to help avoid tourist crowds and solicitors. Easily walkable to town for food and shopping. Great food at the restaurant and a great concierge for amenities at the hotel or any tours outside of the hotel. The rooms are amazing and provide a private feel with natural foliage surrounding the rooms and walkways.

Amazing stay at Capitan Suizo Our stay at Capitan Suizo was the highlight of our 17 days in Costa Rica. The energy of the resort is so captivating. It makes you feel at home and makes you want to come back. It is no surprise that so many people we met keep coming back to Capitan Suizo year after year. The staff are incredible, so helpful and genuine. The grounds are so beautiful and relaxing. We loved our Superior Balcony room. Watched the birds and monkeys in the morning from our balcony while sipping on some yummy Costa Rican Coffee. We were so sad to leave and we are already planning our next stay at Capitan Suizo. We found Costa Ricans to be extremely friendly and kind people. It seems that Capitan Suizo has the top notch Ticos and Ticas as part of the team. A special thank you to Rubia, Max, Ruben, Nixon, Chantal and so many more staff that made us feel so welcome. We loved being in the company of the animals especially the dogs and cats that live on the resort. We highly doubt that there is another resort/hotel that can match what Capitan Suizo has to offer. If you are in Tamarindo, that is where you want to stay !!!

Relaxing getaway from the chaos
Great relaxing retreat, away from the chaotic and crowded center of Tamarindo, though you do have to drive through the chaos to get there. Beautiful setting with their own resident howler monkeys, iguanas, various birds, and the cats that lounge in the main area. Direct access to the beach on a non-crowded section.

If you're staying in the Tamarindo area you should RUN, not walk, to Capitan Suizo!! It was our first trip to Costa Rica, but all of our pre-trip correspondence with the hotel made it seem like we were visiting family by the time we got there. The lush gardens around our room were incredible and perfect for viewing birds and monkeys. Our room was spotless. The food was delicious. The staff was genuinely warm, friendly and helpful, including their help with a last-minute need for a change in our Covid tests. We've been home less than 24 hours and have already made reservations to go back in November!!
