Villa Amarilla is our go to favourite spot to stay in Tamarindo. Cindy & TJ are very welcoming & know exactly how to make you feel at home.

We always joke with TJ & Cinde about living at the hotel permanently, thats how much we love it.

The rooms are clean, offer AC, Mini Fridges, Flat Screens, and the comfiest beds in Tamarindo.

You can walk from your room directly to the surf and then shower off after. Don't forget to spend some time in the hammocks and also the onsite massages ($20.00 for half hour).

You can book any excursions through Diego at the front of the hotel. If you need to arrange rides he can take care of that too.

A grocery store directly beside the hotel for convenience

Shared common area & kitchen to cook up whatever you would like.

Cant wait to stay again

Room Tip: All rooms offer something great

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!
