Nice Enough Hotel
This hotel was a good price which drew me in but the rooms are very small. My friend and I felt cramped which is why we switched hotels. The host was nice and checked us in after 7pm. Everything was pretty dark. We left at 11am for check out so didn't spend much time in the hotel. Beds were just ok but so are most in Costa Rica. Shower was cold.

Quiet out of way lodging
Very charming quaint hotel! The owner Cecile is very nice and has made improvements to offer simple comfortable rooms. The location is away from the main busy & noisy main street of Playa Tamarindo but close enough to walk to the restaurants and the stores. There is a small refrig and new AC to help cool the intense heat & humidity!

Amazing place.
Service at it's finest. The rooms are comfortable, clean and cozy while basic. The host is amazing and will do everything in her power to make your stay perfect. Most welcome I've ever felt at a hotel.

Cecile is Great !
The location is Great if you desire more Seclusion from all the Noise and Craziness at Night - the Beach is a 10 minute Walk away - but the Host is the Best of All, Cecile goes our of her way to make you feel at Home, and you can't beat the Price for the Accomodations. I will definitely Return!
