“Pretty place with a few drawbacks”
Reviewed 6 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The condo is lovely and looks just like it does in the pictures, including the view. It is well equipped with kitchen supplies and linens. The condo complex is part of the Diria resort, across the street from the ocean side, and thus has a very convenient location in Tamarindo. There are however a few drawbacks you should be prepared for. The management company did not explain that condo guests only have use of the large family pool on the condo side. You cannot use any of the other facilities of the Diria Resort, including their lounge chairs by the ocean side pool or the gym. All you can do is use the entrance to the beach. This isn't misrepresented in the property description, but I wasn't aware of the limitations so when I sat down on a lounge chair on the lawn near the beach, a security guard who could not speak English had to go get a hotel staffer to ask me to leave - a little embarrassing. The outside balcony is lovely and I looked forward to having my morning coffee there while listening to the birds. But the air handling units are placed in alcoves on the ground level between the balconies and it sounds like you are on a runway when you sit outside (you do not however hear it inside). It wasn't a pleasant space and no one seemed to use their balconies. Finally, the king size bed in the master bedroom is very, very firm and thin. On the first night, I tried to string together pillows to sleep on. The second night, I gave up and slept on the couch. The third night, I pulled the double mattress off the sleeper sofa and put it on the bed. Because the mattress is so firm, it doesn't absorb any motion and the bed frame creaks when you move. If you would like to have "relations" with your significant other, everyone in the condo will know how you're doing. If you have a bad back, think twice. The twin beds seemed normal. I would definitely stay in the complex again, but I don't think I could take that bed for more than a few nights.

Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We rented this unit for 3 weeks in January 2015 and it was so much nicer than we expected. This unit is well kept and very convenient to everything Tamarindo has to offer. Sleeping conditions were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped.

I hope to be able to come back next year and stay a little longer.
