The location was outstanding, within walking distance to everything and just feet away from the beach. There was a water bug in the shower on the first night but after that, we did not see anything else. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff maintain the grounds very well and are very helpful. Overall, highly recommend.

Perfectly located small adorable gated hotel connected behind resturant and access to the main street. Rolando is amazing he is responsive, attentive, and sweet. He ensures your stay and accomodations are met. The la palapa resturant has the best seafood in tamarindo. Even if you do not stay here PLEASE try the resturant. The fire show is usually around 630 to 7 pm depending on weather. Their prices are beyond amazing and worth ever bit. $35/hr message on the beach. Many surrounding shopping and bars to enjoy all in walking distance.
