A tropical decor outstanding boutique hotel
Beautiful, relaxing decor. Hotel location a little more private- away from the main strip but easy access to the beach. Fridge provided. Thumbs up!

Very Good8.0
Great little hotel in Tamarindo
A very fine choice for a stay in Tamarindo. Room was decently sized, the daily breakfast was very good, and the hotel location was great. Close to several fine restaurants, The beach not far away. The overall deal for the room was excellent. Would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to friends,

Pura Vida
This is a cute hotel with a friendly and personable owner on premises. The restaurant at the hotel is known in the area to be in the top two. The resident iguanas were good company when I ate breakfast. Location is very good with food choices, a mini market and bank all within five minutes' walk. Surfing beaches are the same amount of walking time. Very convenient.

Quiet, yet near the action.
Hotel Arco Iris is in a quiet part of Tamarindo, but just a few blocks from the beach, bars, restaurants and shops. The interior is gorgeous and the outside is in Costa Rican style. The staff were very helpful. Loved it and would stay there again.
