Hotel Elixir

Hotel in Tamarindo

Located in Tamarindo, a 14-minute walk from Grande Beach, Hotel Elixir provides accommodations with an outdoor swimming pool, free private parking and a garden. Elisa is a fantastic host, providing us with all the requested info (from surf lessons shops to nice beaches for the sunset). The hotel is very well located, close to the center but keeping the peace of a less crowded street.

Hotel Casa Carlota Tamarindo

Hotel in Tamarindo

Located in Tamarindo, Hotel Casa Carlota Tamarindo features a garden and a terrace. There's a year-round outdoor pool and guests can use free WiFi and free private parking. I travel a lot and I don't think I've met friendlier or more helpful hosts at this hotel. Due to a shortage of rental cars throughout Costa Rica, I was without transportation when I arrived at the hotel. Jeffrey and Shirley gave me a ride to downtown Tamarindo and even took time from their busy schedule to provide a personal tour of the town. Shirley even arranged an Uber taxi for me to travel to my next stop at Coco Beach. They are renovating the hotel and it is now modern, clean and reasonably priced.

Hotel Laguna Arenal

Hotel in Unión

Boasting a garden and free WiFi, Hotel Laguna Arenal is located in Unión. All rooms have a private bathroom. Each room comes with a terrace with views of the mountain. This is the best place we ever stayed in Costa Rica.Not many 5* hotels can compete with it. There are only 5 individual modern huts with unparalleled views to Lake Arenal. You wake up to the sounds of nature. Anna and Bastian are amazing. They made our stay unforgettable . Best meals we had! Breakfasts are delicious. The rooms are impeccably clean, attention to every detail. Highly recommend!!!!
