Breda, The Netherlands
Reviewed 1 week ago

Spacious, modern rooms. Nice little pool in a beautiful garden with loads of fauna. It's a bit of a drive inside the national park and can only be reached by car, so if you want to go out to dinner at night, the choices are limited. The beach is close by.

This place has a great energy and just feels like you never want to leave. Staff is excellent, always making sure we had all we needed to enjoy our time. The restaurant was a plus! I hope we can come back very soon!

We enjoyed the calm, peaceful atmosphere. Open air restaurant was delightful. Although there was no water views, it was only a short walk to the beach. If we visit this part of Costa Rica again, we would definitely stay here.

We were very impressed with Hotel Contarana. The accommodations are luxurious, clean and private. It is situated in a jungle setting just a short walk away from a magnificent surfing beach and a short distance from busy Tamarindo. There's a very good restaurant located in the hotel which caters to individual needs. When going to Tamarindo, take the $1.00 one...

We have only good things to say about Hotel Cantarana! It was recommended to us by a friend who is from Costa Rica and knows the area well. The location is great - right next to an amazing beach that is not crowded. If you want the crowds then you can walk down the beach to Tamarindo Bay. The staff...
