We stayed at this hotel when we were in Tamarindo recently and I would have to start off by stating that the hosts are the best! Daily breakfast breads and juices are a great start! Cindy does a great job working to make the place have the feel of home!

Room Tip: On the beach!

We had a wonderful time. Cindi and TJ are wonderful hosts and we look forward to stay there again. The comfy sitting area invites you to meet your hosts and other guests and you feel right at home.
Breakfast was great with wonderful banana bread and fruit and most important great coffee!! My husband took surfing lessons right on the beach and had a great time. It was the perfect stay.

Hi Lydia
We are very happy that you and John had a good time. Yes TJ makes a mean
chocolate banana bread. You never know who you might meet in the Rancho.
Hopefully we'll see you both soon. The Octopus room is waiting for you.

We had booked a different room in Tamarindo, but when we arrived the room was so unacceptable that we checked out right away. We then checked out the Amarilla and luckily for us they had a room available for us. It is right on the ocean, with warm and welcoming hosts, other guests, surf instructors, massage therapists and tour guide. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The location and the view could not be beat. Breakfast of coffee, fruit and fresh baked goods was perfect. Thank you Cindi and TJ for making our stay relaxing, memorable and fun.

We chose the Villa because it had great ratings, looked cool, and offered the opportunity to meet other travellers. We were NOT disappointed! Our hosts Cinde and TJ have built a beautiful, welcoming bohemian paradise for people who value a laid back, relaxing environment. Cinde greeted us with smiles and shots of tequila. We stayed in the Octopus room, which was comfortable, airy with good air conditioning. Breakfast was available every morning by 6:30 am. You could help yourself to excellent coffee, fruit, muffins, and AMAZING banana bread. There was ample to go around. Friendly dogs Bacardi, Morgan, Frankie, and Thor roam about the property. Services include tour arranger Diego and massages available on site. Best of all, when you walk to the end of the garden, you open the gate right onto the fantastic beach. Our 17 year old son especially had the time of his life! A great experience!

Dvoira, Terry and Zack,
After a couple of flight delays, we were so glad to see the 3 of walk through the front gate.
Thank you so much for writing this amazing review. You really touched on all parts of
Villa Amarilla. You have a wonderful family. Hope to see you all again and will
make Villa Amarilla your home away from home. Say Hi to Terry and Zack
