We stayed in an ocean view room. It was very clean and roomy. There were plenty of dishes and kitchen items to allow us to save a few bucks on eating out for 3 meals a day. The restaurant was great and the staff was very helpful and personable. There is a "house" cat that roams around and he sat...

We were really hopeful after seeing some great reviews for this place. However, we were very disappointed with Tamarindo Vista Villas. My husband and I visited for our honeymoon and were sorely unimpressed. There was construction going on our entire stay, we had no hot water for 2/3 days, the room was only cleaned once out of 3 days, and...

What a wonderful place this property turned out to be. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Lots to do in Tamerindo, the surf, the scuba and the shopping definitely great. I hope to go back again soon.

We stayed one night at this hotel and got a good price 74$us with breakfast included. The room was fine, quite large, with a nice view overlooking the ocean (room 204). The bathroom felt a bit dingy with low lighting and ceiling but it was ok for a short stay. This hotel is well located, a short walk from all...

We love the Best Western and have stayed here many times. I bring a huge group (54) to Costa Rica for service work, and I want a nice Costa Rican experience for them. We don't need luxury, and this place is almost perfect. My only complaint is that the Friday night party is loud, and the lyrics of the music...

It is a nice place to stay. But too noisy on Friday night, they have this Lady's night party. Too loud music. Live music and records were played at the same time. They should tell you in advance about this party, not some hours before. Terrible wi-if. You can walk to the pueblito. Ocean view from rooms in second level,...

This was our 3rd time staying at Vista Villas and as usual it was fantastic!! Friday night is the best party in town and the rest of the time this is a quiet and clean place to stay with a super nice staff and amazing crew at the Crazy Monkey Bar/Restaraunt!!

Rooms are huge, with a separate bathroom. Staff fantastic, friendly and efficient. The owners are brilliant and knowledgeable. The majority of apartment surround the glorious swimming pool. The food is brilliant. There is a local bus service out the front and only 10 minutes to the closest beach, 5 minutes to the nearest town and supermarket. I do strongly suggest...

Its ok. Allowed me to shower and sleep. Uncomfortable beds. LOUD party in the pool on Friday nights with free really bad drinks. Horrible wi-fi. It is a close walk to the beach and to shopping/restaurant area. Oceanview room not worth it. I can see the ocean during the day, but I'm not at the hotel during the day. Rooms...
