I was lucky enough to go to Costa Rica for 10 glorious days and Indra Inn was a great part of our stay. The inn itself was super cozy and located in a great spot, beautiful views and not too busy. The owners are what put the inn over the top. Super friendly and helpful, found a lot of great...

My sister and I stayed here for 10 days and loved it. This is no ritzy hotel, but it was absolutely perfect for the pace and style of our trip. Clean rooms, nice bathroom, beautiful grounds, parking, close to the beach, and great hospitality. We were served breakfast daily (egs/rice and beans/toast, or granola with yogurt, fresh fruit, oj and...

It was our pleasure to have you stay with us and we are stoked that you took time to write such a beautiful review of us.

This was a great place to stay on pacific coast near Tamarindo but not so busy which I loved. Great beaches very close by, nearly deserted while I was there. The family that run this are delightful and very helpful.

Fantastic experience, great value and a wonderful family. The green room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great AC and the softest towels in Guanacaste. Thank you so much for the helpful advice around Playa Grande

We stayed at the Indra Inn for 9 nights and everything surpassed our every expectation! The owners were welcoming and warm, even making us breakfast every morning! For the location, price and service we can honestly say Indra Inn can't be beat! We will have to find ourselves back to Costa Rica to visit them again (sooner the better). Sincerely,...

I came down with my girlfriend to Indra and had a great time. We stayed in the Fire room, which was clean and stayed just cool enough. Going to Indra is like going home, because Matt, Natalia and their adorable child Dante live on-site. They are easy-going, interesting people who have a lot to share from their own experiences and...

We visited on Jan 2015. Great and easy communication with Matthew before arrival. The room was simple, comfortable and clean. It was a little noisy, but we were there on New Years Eve.

Basic rooms but clean and tidy. Think there's only four rooms to the premises, but was nice, not invasive and quiet. The owners were really nice friendly, relaxed people.

We miss you guys. Thanks for staying and thanks for writing. We're stoked that you like the security and climate control of the rooms. It's hot here, so it's necessary to have a good working A/C.
