As mentioned in a previous review, we've also stayed away from US chain hotels. But this is a Costa Rican hotel. Hotel grounds landscaped with native flowering plants. Room is small with some unusual features including alcove landscaped with a planter box of decorative gravel and diffenbachia plants, Full length mirror and platform bed. Room clean although musty smelling. Powerful... More

Me and my family joined a group at the monkey Bar at the Best Western after Church. They have a nice little outdoor bar next to the pool with a nice view out to Playa Grande. The secret of the Best Western is the deep pool with a waterfall that you can jump off. My kids had a blast diving,... More

First of all you are visiting CR; its beautiful but anything can happen..Yes there was some construction however, September and October are the only times they can do any renovations at the hotel; deal with it. If you are staying busy and being adventurous you will never notice. Its an amazing property with a fantastic vista from the pool deck... More

I visited with a group of 30 and we had a great experience at the hotel. The rooms that slept 4 were huge, and some even had kitchenettes. The rooms that slept 2 were small, but clean and bright. We stayed 2 nights and had 2 breakfasts, a lunch and a dinner at the hotel.The food and service at mealtimes... More

I normally don't stay at best westerns, preferring something with a little more character, but this place was perfect. It was cheap compared to all the other places around, was only a block off the beach and has a nice pool with a bar in it. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Best available for the price.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in August and we very much enjoyed it. Our room/ apartment was huge with a balcony overlooking the sea and a very comfortable bed. The pool and bar area are nice. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the chambermaids really looked after our room. There is a restaurant... More

my wife and I stayed here for two nights. There are two levels for the rooms here and we stayed on the lower level. There's no view of the ocean from here and it is right above the road. Which at night is quiet enough. We stayed in one of the rooms which has a kitchen and the living room... More

We stayed in an ocean view room. It was very clean and roomy. There were plenty of dishes and kitchen items to allow us to save a few bucks on eating out for 3 meals a day. The restaurant was great and the staff was very helpful and personable. There is a "house" cat that roams around and he sat... More

We were really hopeful after seeing some great reviews for this place. However, we were very disappointed with Tamarindo Vista Villas. My husband and I visited for our honeymoon and were sorely unimpressed. There was construction going on our entire stay, we had no hot water for 2/3 days, the room was only cleaned once out of 3 days, and... More
