Very disappointed in the accomodations. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite - NO HOT WATER for the 8 days we were there. The bathrooms smelled like sewage. The dishes in our kitchen needed to be washed before we could use the.The beds are old and hard - linens were stale smelling and our comforter looked as if it had...

Sunset Inn is literally our home away from home when visiting Tamarindo. It is an excellent option when traveling with family and in our case, even DOGS. The staff is extremely friendly and the location is super safe. The inn is a block away from the beach with a convenient supermarket down the street. The suites are spacious and the...

I stayed here for a month and loved it! The hotel has a cozy feel and the people were very friendly. It is a smaller hotel and you really get to know all your neighbors. I made so many great friends during my stay. The manager is very hands on and will correct any issues you may have and is...

Great little place with fully equipped suites. You'll make new friends and you're a short stroll to a world-class beach! The owner is hands-on and will make sure that you are comfortable and happy to be a guest at his cozy Inn.

When we arrived we were greeted by a shirtless guy with bloodshot eyes and a flee covered dog. The pool was filthy and the whole place reeked of sewer. The stove and fridge were covered in grime and the bed sheets had cigarette burns. There was a hole in the bathroom floor. The window by the shower was missing and...

I should start by saying that this guest made several false statements (the pool is always in great conditions, there's never been any smell whatsoever in our aparthotel, the only whole in the bathroom is the shower drain) My friend Morice was helping me out the day this client arrived, he is a surfer and probably was coming from surfing...

Federico made the stay incredible. There were several occasions where he went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to ensure an awesome trip. The hotel surrounds a nice courtyard with a pool and great landscaping. The beach is super close and we had a small grocery within sight which added to the convenience. I...

Stayed in Tdo for a night and had to get away from the party vibe of the city and get some better and less crowded surf. My boyfriend and I found Sunset Inn online and booked a couple of nights. (FYI it's ~20$ cheaper to pay the owner directly and not book online. Call ahead.) The first room we stayed...

We ignored the bad revues and took a chance on the Sunset Inn...bad idea. Luckily we did not prepay the entire month of our dream vacation to Costa Rica. When we first arrived we noticed that the window in our bathroom was missing. Not broken or under repair....just gone. Federico assured us that it would be fixed by tomorrow the...

Stayed in Sunset one month ago with my wife, and we loved it, if you looking for a quiet , and cozy place this is the place to be, You can save money buying some grocery in the next door store to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Beach is 2 min walk , at night theres no noise so...

Great place to stay. Federico treats you like family and the location is great. Excellent place to stay for a surf trip as you're close to Playa Negra, Playa Grande, Avellanas (sp?) etc. Internet was very reliable which was nice since I had to do some work while down there. Would definitely recommend.
