Tamarindo, Costa Rica
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

This hotel is the best place to stay if you want to visit one of the best waterfalls in Costa Rica (Nauyaca). The people are amazing, the place is very quiet and relaxing. Do not regret visiting this place. 100% recommended.

We drove a long ways from the Atlantic coast and arrived here at about 6pm to check in. We wanted to go to Nauyaca Waterfalls in the morning so this was a great location. They showed us our cute and private bungalow. We wanted dinner, they recommended Fajitas which were AMAZING! Dessert and drinks were great too (except margarita...haven't had...

Pleasantly surprised by our stay at Natuga! We were looking for a place to stay near the Nauyaca Waterfalls and arrived to Natuga without a reservation after sunset. Owner Jacob (sp?) greeted us with a warm welcome, immediately serving us each a thirst quenching passion fruit juice drink! Great place to stay if you are interested in seeing the Waterfalls...

Wonderful resort! I highly recommend Natuga. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is beautiful. And the open air bar/lounge/restaurant is beautiful. The staff was awesome and very accommodating. Had a pina colada with the owner and she is a wonderful person! The breakfast each morning was great: omelettes, bacon, traditional beans and rice, toast and jam, all made to order....

We had a great stay while at this Hotel. The facilities were clean and neat. If I could go there again, I would do it. There is a 10% charge for the food service that I did not quite understand, which is additional to the 13% of sales tax. It really makes the stay more expensive for the visitors. However,...

“Make sure you have a frig in your room. They are all away from the main road. You may need a 4 wheel drive to get to some of the rooms, steeeep driveways. The rooms are older but very clean. The dining facilities are very nice, the language problem was a little difficult. The food was very nice and they all say you can drink their water, bring bottled or drink bottled beverages or at least enough alcohol to kill bugs. The location could have better signs to locate it. I had to ask a local cop where it was finally.”
