Wonderful hotel!
This is a great little boutique hotel with excellent service. Our room was small but very nice. The owner, Richard, and his staff were extremely helpful with all our activities and questions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Iguana Hotel
Very personal check-in and escort to our room. Free parking is helpful in this part of Tamarindo. Tiny rooms but very clean and modern. Seasons restaurant is very good. Free breakfast with good coffee, fruit and omelets. Internet in rooms connect but is not always functional. Friendly iguanas are everywhere, and they like bananas and watermelon.

Fantastic Place To Stay!
This was our favorite hotel in Costa Rica! The room was meticulously maintained, the service was incredible, and the amenities were perfect. While this property isn't directly on the water, it's not a far walk to the beach, and the pool is a welcome break from the ocean. A short walk from many hotels, bars, and activities.

Great location
I have stayed many high end hotels like Marriott, Hilton, Novotel, Accor and so on before choosing to stay here. This place is close enough to the beach but just far away enough from the hustle and bustle. It's more like bungalows than a hotel but offers so much peace and serenity. It also houses one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo called Seasons by Shlomy. Awesome food that was only a few steps from room. Richard, the owner, is always onsite and always willing to assist you, if necessary. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone planning on visiting Tamarindo.
