Cinde is spectacular. Welcomes you to her perfect location in the middle of playa tamarindo with a beautiful smile and a shot of tequila. Great meeting spot for lovely ex pat locals and repeat tourists. What a wonderful place to have in Tamarindo. Rooms are very comfortable and welcoming.

It's not my first time in VILLA AMARILLA , and I can tell you that is the best place to enjoy Tamarindo beach.
TJ and Cinde are so welcoming, kind and helpful, that makes our stay incredibly enjoyable and relaxing .
Just like they said, arrive as strangers, leave as family.....I'll certainly be back soon .

Just like they said, arrive as strangers, leave as family. TJ and Cinde are so welcoming, kind and helpful. They made our stay so relaxing and enjoyable. The accommodations were outstanding! Very clean and comfortable rooms and the small extras they provided (yummy muffins and fruit for breakfast, beach towels, sunscreen) were a great added touch. All the additional services were nice to have right on-site if you were interested in purchasing like the massages, surfing lessons, excursions, ATV rentals and more. My husband and I came alone this trip to check out the town and surrounding areas. We had such a great time that we will be back again this year with our kids and as many friends that we can gather to join us. Thanks so much Hotel Villa Amarilla for an incredible vacation....Pura Vida!

Room Tip: Upstairs had a quiet, comfy sitting area. It was covered so we sat out there at night watching the rain, thunder and lightning storms!

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!
