The two girls that were working there, the one that checked us in in the evening and the other who was making the breakfast in the morning were so nice, pleasant and helpful. The owners were there in the morning at breakfast making fresh croissants. And there is even a long term non paying guest that shows up in the morning (bob the iguana). I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Tamarindo. And they are currently doing some construction of new units to help accommodate more people.

Tamarindo is a great little beach town, there are restaurants, shops, bars and lots of tours leave from the area. It's not the best beach in Guanacaste (you can take ATV tours to some other area beaches or rent a car and explore on your own) but there is definitely more to do over all. We went in July and it wasn't crowded at all, but I imagine there is quite the influx of people during the busy season. Would definitely come back!
Playa Hermosa in the Guanacaste Province, is one of my favorite places in all of Costa Rica. Beautiful beaches, sunsets, restaurants, and amazing local and tourist people. Very safe area that should be discovered!!
Playa flamingo is in Guanacaste Provence, the least populated provence in Costa Rica. It is also the most upscale of destinations.Not much in the way of nightlife, but I and others appreciate that. Lots of great restaurants, a wonderful long sandy beach, and plenty of tour activities available.There are a large number of American ex-pats that make this area home. Coco loco restaurant on the beach is a must. The seared tuna is to die for. Having a car is a good idea. Some of the roads,like to the beach aren't paved, but overall, driving is not much of a problem. There are also taxis, and the tour companies offer transportation.
I had been to Tamarindo several times in the 80's and 90's and I was very sad to find my sleepy little beach town all grown up. It seems to happen to all the good places. I was there with my family over the holidays, when the place fills up with Costa Rican city dwellers as well as American and European tourists, which definitely accounts for some of the crowding and price-gouging we encountered, but not all of it. Tamarindo has made the jump from a surfing and fishing town to a playground for people with money to throw around. We had a rental car we used to get out of town and visit quiet beaches to the south and the volcanoes and forest to east. The traffic was so bad some days it took 30 minutes to go a few blocks. The classic white sand beaches were full of people and the locals advised us to stay out of the water due to pollution from sewage. Charter prices for fishing trips were astronomical. With all this said, it all depends on what you are looking for: If you want a low-key spot where you can experience authentic local culture and chill-out on beautiful, uncrowded beaches, there are plenty of spots still like that in Guanacaste. If you want everything in English and want to hang out and party down with other tourists drinking $8 margaritas, Tamarindo is your kind of place.
Playa Hermosa is considered one of the nicest beaches in Guanacaste province and we felt that to be true after visiting three other beaches in the area. It is a wide sandy beach with dark gray/black sand; there are lots of trees and places to sit so easy to get into shade after sun-tanning or swimming. It's a nice long beach for a walk to either end. Playa Hermosa is quieter than other beach communities but we liked that it wasn't commercial but had the right balance of tranquility along with good restaurant selections and felt like we are experiencing life like the locals on the beach. I would definitely go back to this same area. It's about a 25 minute drive from Liberia airport and well worth having a car to be able to explore.
A perfect surfing town in Guanacaste! Great people, access to awesome beaches and surfing, wonderful food and nightlife - a perfect place to anchor a vacation in CR.
We stayed 2 weeks total in Costa Rica. Loved flying into Liberia Airport!!! Compared to San Jose airport.....It's smaller, clean and not busy at all! Liberia is definitely a quieter city than the big city of San Jose. Thank goodness we flew into Liberia airport because the week we flew in, San Jose airport was temporarily closed due to the various active volcanoes in the area. We heard traffic was diverted. There was car traffic everywhere in San Jose. Just so glad we chose Liberia. It was our first time flying into Liberia airport and will ONLY fly into Liberia on our next trip to Costa Rica!!! The first week, we visited Drake Bay (which was very South of Liberia near Osa Peninsula!). Then the 2nd week, we flew back to Liberia Airport and stayed in Guanacaste - Ocotal Beach area.
El Coco tiene muchas opciones interesantes de comida y varios Bares para salidas en la noche, se ven buenos atardeceres pero la playa no es la mejor de Guanacaste
Central beach for Guanacaste. Lots of restaurants, bars, grocery stores and other services on main street. Many low rise condos and small hotels for tourists but this is still a living town for locals. They had the annual “rodeo” while we were there with horse parades, marching bands and fireworks. Very a much a Tico celebration. Recommend a car to visit other beaches and other attractions in area. Canopy tour, zip-lining, rafting, riding etc.
Liberia is a transit point between many of the great sites in Guanacaste, but as there as so many great places within a couple of hours, I would recommend picking a place that meets the travelers interest, beaches, mountains, etc and staying there for cheaper.

Great location in the center of Playa Hermosa. Fantastic restaurant! When we first arrived we were not pleased with the small, dimly lit standard room at the back of the property, but after making a great deal with the manager moved to a deluxe room with high ceilings, a fridge and a balcony overlooking the gardens. We stayed for 10 days and were very happy at Villa Acacia and with the friendly people of Guanacaste. It's a laid-back place.
The food was wonderful. The grounds were romantic. The staff was fantastic, super fantastic, all of them. We went on fishing trip and the Captain picked us up right in front of the property. We caught 8 Mahi Mahi and 2 very large Yellowtail Tuna. We gave fish to the staff and they took a Mahi Mahi and we had it for dinner that evening. WOW! This is the nicest Hotel we ever stayed at in Guanacaste. Even better than the Melia Playa Conchal.

We have loved our stay with Rob, Patricia, and Princess! The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. They are great hosts that make you feel at home and were very helpful to organize our trip, so much that we extended our stay with them! The location is fantastic, the residence where they live as well (the pool is a gem!). Overall, perfect experience to enjoy the beautiful nature of Guanacaste!
The condo is fully equipped with everything you need and is clean and spacious. It’s a great place to relax and forget about everyday life. The pool is great and the environment is very welcoming. All the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The location is great due to the fact that it is very close to many of guanacaste’s great beaches. Will definitely be coming back.

Cabinas el Coliri is a small, but very well laid out, facility about 5 minutes walk to one of Costa Rica's most beautiful, and still largely undiscovered beaches. It is very well maintained and serviced by very friendly staff. The gardened and clean property is almost equally divided by pool area, rooms, and a very, very good restaurant. In fact, this place is essentially a first class (Argentinian grill) restaurant with a few rooms. For the area, it represents good value for money. Tip: If you enjoy excellent beef grilled in the Argentinian manner (they are the best), with a surprisingly good wine list, in a very nice setting, be sure to make reservations as this is a very popular place. It may well be the best in Costa Rica! If you are concerned about sharing space with a popular restaurant, don't be. Rooms are well insulated and noise was not an issue. Finally, I noticed, in another review, a reviewer complaining about smoking and needing air conditioning. You are in a hot place and air conditioning works and is essential. Smoking is not allowedon the property.

The thermal pools are worth a trip on their own. They are a little too buy with hyperactive kids during the day, but I went back after dark and took a dip on my own and it was a totally different experience. Would be nice if the pools that are exclusive for hotel guests was open when I was there, or if there was an adults only section. I don't mind children but they made it difficult to relax. Room was basic but nice. I was checked in by a very helpful member of staff who spoke good English. I ate in the restaurant, it wasn't awful but not great either.
