You can't get any closer to the beach than this hotel/resort. Beachfront with large pool right in the lobby and an even larger pool complex across the street. Rooms were large and clean with big tiled shower. Enjoyed the patio outside as you could walk from it right out to the lawns and beach. Restaurant has great morning buffet with local and western foods. Very attentive staff.

We stayed in Tamarindo Diria during our recent visit to Costa Rica. Our travel company booked this hotel for us. After our arrival the front desk has trouble finding our booking. Thankfully we had our itinerary printed out with our travel agency’s information so they could confirm after about 15-20 min. They gave us a room across the road not in the main building. It was a queen bed and a double bed on the second floor with one of the pool view. We requested a king bed room. After some wait time they did fulfilled our request. The front desk lady was nice and helpful. The bar and pool area is beautiful with stunning view. There are three restaurants participates with the Tamarindo Diria. Our booking included a welcome drink which felt more like a virgin drink without any alcohol in it. The bar, pool and the grass area with palm trees are very well maintained. The breakfast is impeccable with so much food choices and hot omelet or eggs prepared to your satisfaction. Espresso and cappuccino for the morning coffee fix and variety of juices. I specially loved the green juice of a local slightly tart fruit. I read a review where someone said that there is only one towel station at the front desk which is not true. There is a towel station in the building across the road as well and the lady Caroline was super nice and friendly. She even remembered our names. In another review I read complaints about the vendors etc. Every country is unique with their own tradition and culture. We need to learn to respect that. Growing up in a third world country I know how difficult it is to make a living for the majority of the population. I would buy the authentic pina-colada or green/hard coconut or even souvenirs from street vendors any time of the day. You can simply smile and say no if you are not interested. We had some issues with our second room since it was on the 1st floor and near to garbage disposal and strong odor was coming inside via the bathroom window. We requested some air freshener for the room and the hotel management tried their best. We were not in the room for the most part of the day anyway. The management even surprised us with a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries on our second night of the stay. Highly appreciated gesture :) The hotel is in the middle of the town next to the beach which is perfect for surfing with moderate wave and beautiful view. The security guards helped us crossing the road every single time stopping the traffic of a busy road and the stuffs were nice to us. I'd recommend to stay here.

My friend and I stayed for 8 nights in mid September. Great location right in the middle of Tamarindo Beach. Attentive staff, free breakfast, great bar and restaurant. Security is on duty 24/7. Traveling as two single women we felt very safe, not that there is much crime in Costa Rica. We booked an adventure through the tours desk at the hotel, and it was easy, inexpensive and the staff/guides made it a wonderful experience.

Loved our stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly Yostin, Brenda and Luis were just a few of the great staff members we met during our stay. Pools were fabulous. Location is perfect. Loved that they had a variety of restaurants. Favorite part was laying out in the garden area overlooking the beach. Can't wait to be back.

We had friends tell us about the Diria and Costa Rica and decided to stay there. Their website has webcams showing the views from the hotels as well. We decided to get a 1st floor room which was very large and checked all the boxes but did not have a beach\sunset view so we decided to upgrade. We were so happy we did. We had a 1st floor patio room which was about 15 steps from the beach. Beautiful sunsets every night. The food was very good and compared to back home very inexpensive. Will be going back and will definitely be staying at the Diria again.

We were upgraded to seafront rooms and could enjoy the amazing sunset with a mojito on our balcony. Reasonable sized room, very comfortable beds. The location of this hotel is excellent, right on the beachfront and in the middle of town. Plenty of great restaurants on your doorstep and along the beach. We liked the outdoor food court, right out of the hotel, up the first road on the left on the rhs. The gym needs some new cardio equipment, but was ok. The pool area across the road was great and the swim up bar prices very reasonable,. We had a great stay, 5 night’s wasn’t long enough. Reception staff very kind when l lost my room card surfing.

You can’t beat the location if you’d like a 30 second walk to go surfing. But the rooms are overpriced so find a different hotel and spend your money on surfing not sleeping. If you do chose this hotel - good luck trying to check in before 3 pm Furthermore you could boil your breakfast eggs in the toxic liquid that passes for water in the ocean side pool. - your lips will burn. Walk across the street and use the less convenient but bigger pool in the apartment complex. At least if feels like a pool and not the Love Canal Super Fund Site.

Mr. Alpert: We appreciate the preference towards our Resort as the ultimate surfing base; Nevertheless, your commentary doesn’t echo the reality of our hotel - nor the quality standards we manage. We offer 5 different room categories - spread out in 3 separated spaced for our guest’s enjoyment, and according to our guests’ preferences and budget. By resort standards check in time at our property is in fact at 3pm (as described on our website: www.tamarindodiria.com); however, our Housekeeping & Front Office teams will always make their best to grant you access to your room as early as they can - if its within their possibilities. We lament the detrimental character of this review and invite users to visit us and delight with our premises and amenities. Best regards.

We just returned from our first trip to Costa Rica and we had a fabulous time. There is plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from while you are there. Diria is in the best location for your stay in Tamarindo. Our room was cleaned every day and the room was cozy and COOL from the A/C. Our room faced the ocean it was nice to sit out on the balcony and listen to the waves. They have plenty of seating in front of the beach whether you want to sit in the shade or the sun. Yes, if you want to sit ON the beach you do have to rent the chairs, but that is with any resort you stay in when the beach is a public beach, the hotel does not own the beach. The plus to not sitting directly on the beach is the wall keeps the vendors from coming up to your chairs and harassing you to buy something. You simply say no thank you and they keep walking. We ate breakfast every day and the options are endless you will never go hungry at breakfast. We did eat at the pizza restaurant and El Caramba both were good. Other restaurants I suggest are Pantagonia, Red Door, and definitely Pangas. All are great in the evening, but make sure you call for reservations. The front desk will help you and will also get a cab if you don't want to walk. We did learn if you get a cab it should only be $5 NOT $15 that we got taken for. :) You must take the Sunset Catamaran with Marlin Del Ray. It was amazing and so much fun! Well worth the money. Shout out to Irene at the front she is amazing!!! She took care of all our requests!!! Keep up the amazing customer service Irene! Your friend Sandra!! The only suggestion I have is to be able to keep the WiFi connection for your entire stay without having to reconnect every morning, but that is no complaint. Because Tamarindo is a popular place you will hear a lot of traffic, but that is just for informational purposes and nothing bad about the hotel. Usually around 11 or so it quieted down. We will definitely stay here again
