I would consider this more of a boutique luxury AirBnB type rather than a hotel. It's a very homey, comfortable environment, run by a small, engaging and very friendly staff! We came from a very long drive from Monteverde and took the 'wrong' road up which was super unpaved and bumpy and this spot is located on a steep hill, so when we arrived we were a little hesitant because there's no 'lobby' instead it is the kitchenette area/pool'bar' area and (like most of Costa Rica) stairs to get to the bungalow at the top of the hill - GRATEFULLY one of the staff, very expertly, grabbed both of our suitcases and hauled it up for us at the same time. You'll be greeted by happy Charlie (the dog) and Sylvia who was the head host and she's very knowledgable about all things Tamarindo with great recommendations! We used the infinity pool every day, sometimes multiple times - so convenient and refreshing...it's also the only singular thing to do on the property besides being in the room. I have a lot of love for this spot, just painting the picture for managed expectations! As mentioned, the road up is very steep, we didn't find ourselves coming and going as often as we would have liked because it was not comfortable - highly recommend renting a car (necessary if you're going to be travelling between cities anyways) however Kalokairi does offer a shuttle service throughout the day - not sure of the terms as we didnt utilize it.

Hotel's Favourite
This place looks like it came from a magazine cover. My wife and I spent 3 nights at this place and the experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff is super friendly, courteous and very helpful. The views are second to none and the property design is impeccable. It is obvious that a lot of planning went into this hotel. The property is located away from civilization down some unpaved roads and that was part of the appeal. It has been a long time that we've woken up to sounds of wild birds instead of traffic. Floor to ceiling windows provided unimpeded views of nearby mountains and ocean, and a morning coffee on the balcony was even better. This is one place I would love to come back to, but next time I would stay longer.

This place is absolutely wondrous. When I arrived, I noticed the “Best of the best” award from this page, and wondered if it was really that good. Such mention is well deserved. From the views (The ocean view suite allows you to see the sunset from the little terrace) to the incredible design and architecture from this hotel, it has it all. Rooms are cozy but modern, and the shower and the all-natural amenities that you can even purchase, because they use refillable bottles in all their products (+1 for you guys!) are absolutely enchanting. Their customer service is top-notch, these people really know how to run a place like Pacific Kalokairi. You will not regret staying here.

Not joking, this is seriously the best accommodation I’ve ever stayed at. The room, the views, the peaceful vibe… all of that is up to the highest standards you can expect, but what makes this place stand up from any other is their absolutely incredible crew. Virginia and her family will leave no stone unturned to make you at home. They are so nice and warm that you don’t feel at a hotel, but rather at a close friend/relative’s house. They genuinely care about you and will ask you about your sleep and your day, and will provide honest recommendations. Charly the lab puts the cherry on top of this magnificent property.

Our stay at Pacific Kalokairi was just magical. The hotel staff were extremely responsive answering questions through whatsapp even before we arrived. The rooms were immaculately clean, and the location is perfect. It is close enough to the action of Tamarindo, but far enough to provide a tranquil retreat. We have stayed in our fair share of hotels throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, and what made our stay perfect were the staff. They were so helpful and so friendly. We really felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Also, how can you not fall in love with Charly (their black lab). I would 100% recommend Pacific Kalokairi to anyone!

Thank you so much for your beautiful review! It was a pleasure having you here, chatting with you during breakfast and the shuttle rides and watching you play with Charly (and we're sure he loved it too!). We're glad you left with the feeling that you spent time with friends because that's exactly what we aim for. Hope to see you again soon (here or in New York! 😉)

Small boutique hotel set in the hills 10 minutes from the centre of Tamarindo. Beautifully designed hotel and rooms. Gorgeous view of the sunset overlooking the sea from the pool area . The service is outstanding - they were friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcome .

We loved this place. We came at the start of rainy season, which had its own challenges but it didn’t rain much at all. When pulling up to the gate, you need to get out and ring the bell. You can get right back into your car, but it doesn’t say that so we stood out there until the gate opened. And then doing it again at night meant being around all of the beetles that were flying around. The rooms are very clean and there are two pre-filled refillable water bottles in the fridge. Like most places, there’s a Britt coffee machine in the room. As well as tea and many amenities. The breakfast was a nice variety of options and delicious. This is a family (and close friends!) owned business. The swimming pool is tops - watch that 3rd step, it’s a doozie! 😃 We booked three nights and left after one and I am still giving it 5 stars mostly just because it wasn’t for me, doesn’t make it bad. The ocean view rooms (the ocean is pretty far away btw) is up several steep steps. Like A LOT of steps that are jagged and uneven. If you don’t want steps, stay in Jungle View room 5. We found this out when we got there. The other thing is that during rainy season, there are swarms of beetles. Legit swarms. Don’t even think of turning a light on until you’re in your room. And getting there…yeah A LOT of beetles. We left after one night and did not want a refund. It’s a great family and wonderful business and we want them to thrive. Also, the roads there are no better or worse than anywhere in Costa Rica. Rent a 4 wheel drive and you’ll be fine.

Absolutely perfect in every way!! This was by far one of our favourite places to stay! Pacific Kalokairi is family run and their pride shines through. We received immediate responses to our questions from the booking process right until after we left. This is a rare trait in the tourist industry. They treat you as family and are extremely helpful in organizing tours, transportation, suggestions, you name it, they can help! The accommodations are immaculate and beautiful while maintaining the Costa Rica ambiance. There is nothing more incredible than waking up to the sound of glorious birds and of course the howler monkeys! Charlie (the family dog) is there to greet you, make you feel at home too! If you are looking for a quiet stay but still convenient to restaurants, beach and the town, this is the one!! Every hotel should take a lesson from these owners. See you next time!

This trip was our first trip to Costa Rica - and we will DEFINITELY be back, and will absolutely stay at Pacific Kalokairi again!!! Not only was the booking, arrival and check-in seamless for this 8 day stay, the owner and employees became our friends. The location was perfect as it was only 5 minutes from downtown Tamarindo. We rented a car, which we would highly recommend as it allows you to adventure and seek out beautiful locations :) Although, if you are not keen on driving, Virginia and the team are happy to coordinate shuttles to and from town for you each day. In regards to the rooms - WOW! It was like staying in a luxurious treehouse that had been brilliantly designed by a talented architect. From the type of coffee provided inside the rooms, to the vaulted roofs, comfortable beds, stunning views and impeccably clean rooms, we were constantly impressed! Each morning we were greeted by Virginia and the staff and we loved spending time with their black labrador as well - 'Charley' :) It truly felt as though we were waking up each morning, talking to friends and staying at a home away from home! Every morning there is an al a carte breakfast for which you choose what to eat/drink from a lengthy menu - and of course this was all included in our stay! When I inquired about having a professional RMT come to the hotel and provide a massage after a long trip to Costa Rica, Virginia was quick to organize this for me. The massage was the following day and may have been one of the best I have ever had - not to mention it was outdoors with the incredible views! We cannot say enough amazing things about this hotel - it was truly a dream trip! We will definitely return and feel blessed to have made some lifelong friends! HUGE thank you to Virginia, Sylvia, the entire team, and of course....Charley ;)

The photos don't do this place justice. The photos made us book but in person its even better! my boyfriend and I stayed two nights at Pacific Kalokairi for a birthday trip. We loved the really kind staff, Virginia, Maria, Silvia and of course Charlie! but the views is what makes this place special. it's tucked away in the mountains a short drive away from the downtown Tamarindo. We did experience some difficulties with getting up the hill but all in all it can happen (good driver and preferably 4X4). I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a calm relaxing place away from the crowds. It really is so peaceful and aesthetically beautiful. (also very romantic) ahaha. I'd stay here again if I am ever back in Costa Rica.
