It was definitely the most upscale accommodation we had while in CR. We were on lagoon side with lagoon view. Nicely appointed room and bath. It was gated and felt safe not that Tamarindo felt unsafe but the added security was nice. Breakfast was excellent-multiple hot and cold choices daily-coffe carafes on the table which was nice. The main restaurant...

We recently had a family wedding at the Tamarindo Diria hotel and it was first class from beginning to the end. The beachfront portion of the hotel is right on the beach & you can watch the surfers daily. The rooms were comfortable and the a/c worked great. My only complaint was that the bathroom lighting was not so great...

This hotel is right in the heart of the city, near shops and restaurants.Great location. Recommend ocean view room but pool across the street the most private. The breakfast buffet included is a great value. Rooms are small but ocean view is best. The grounds are well kept.

Very well placed with tons of restaurants and bars and shops located within walking distance. Located right on the beach - great for surfing, although there were lots of big rocks on the beach so one needed to be careful during periods of high tide when you couldnt see these rocks. Beach was very clean , lots of vendors selling...

We really liked staying here. A few glitches here and there (wifi was always a problem, breakfast was typical cruise-type fare), but I think it's the best place to stay in tamarindo. We didn't eat at the hotel but for breakfast and some drinks several days. I recommend looking for Ronald from bluecrabtours.com on the beach in front of the...

Second time here in as many years. Just love it. They do so much very well. From the clean rooms to the spectacular grounds and of course the ocean front beach property. They may be better places in Tamarindo but none can claim to have the perfect charm of Diria.

We have just completed two weeks at this hotel . We might be the first backpackers to walk into this hotel cold off the street. and spend two weeks, it is definitely not a backpacker hotel. It is a first class operation, everything is first class. The facility, the staff, the breakfast and the location --right on the beach. It...

your staff was amazing, especially the bartender at the main pool, name Jaun? not sure about the spelling. very nice and felt safe. Would to come over again. takes over a day to get there but worth it, we stayed for about 8 days or so, it was a much needed vacation.

The location is the best in Tamarindo, the grounds are very well maintained, the bed was comfy and the ocean view rooms do have great views, but that's the end of the good news. I had an ocean front room for a week in what I was told is the oldest part of the hotel (all ocean front rooms are...

Terrible service. Staff is clueless and does not understand basic English or basic arithmetic. They will overcharge you or try to scam you with hotel charges. Be careful and watch your bills closely. If you are staying in Matapalto condos they will force you to purchase a wrist band for $40 per person per day, of which $20 will be...

Dear Jeffrey M, We are naturally surprised to read your review as this does not reflect the true level of service offered at Tamarindo Diria. For the benefit of our readers, we would like to clarify that our staff never forced you to purchase the $40 day pass ticket. You actually purchased it for three days and never complainted about...
