Fodor's Review

For folks who value nature, tranquility, and an unbeatably beautiful beach setting, along with luxurious rooms and an idyllic swimming pool, this is the classiest choice in town. Nestled in a tiny forest on the relatively quiet southern end of Tamarindo's beach, the hotel offers a variety of room types. Elegant balconied rooms and airy bungalows surround a large, curvaceous pool shaded by native trees and greenery. Second-floor rooms in the main building have high, angled ceilings and lots of screens, offering an ocean breeze as an alternative to air-conditioning (which the rooms do have). Lower rooms are smaller and a little darker, with terraces edging the lush garden, which is visited by iguanas, raccoons, howler monkeys, and birds. A beautifully decorated and romantically illuminated terrace restaurant, overlooking the pool and beach, serves upscale, contemporary cuisine and hosts beach barbecues (December 21–May) with live marimba music every Wednesday and Friday night.
