My 9-year-old daughter and I just returned from our second trip to Capitan Suizo. We have a highly structured life at home, and this is one place that we've found in our travels where we both really relax. The hotel staff and we share a deep love of animals. Wild monkeys (including babies) iguanas, birds, raccoons - all roaming free...

We’re a middle-aged couple who spent 12 nights in early March at Hotel Capitan Suizo, AKA Heaven on Earth. This was our second visit, and the hotel did not disappoint. Located on the quiet, southern end of beautiful Playa Tamarindo, the hotel offers comfortable accommodations, a lovely pool, delicious food and the friendliest staff you could possibly imagine. All while...

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 9 days, and overall everything was excellent. We had room 37, a lovely room with a view of the pool and distant ocean. The room is comfortable and spacious and has a balcony. Out of the 9 nights we were there, a nearby disco played loud music with a strong bass line that...

We stayed at this hotel and loved it. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the grounds were beautiful and location right on the beach. This restaurant was very good and the pool very refreshing. You could swim in pool and watch all the wildlife around you. There were monkeys, iguanas and colorful birds. I would definitely recommend and stay at...

I recently stayed at the Hotel Capitan Suizo with my 2 children ages 11 & 13. Upon arrival the front desk greeted me by name and whisked us to our stunning garden level room. The room was the perfect amount of space for the 3 of us, incredibly charming and clean. Sitting on the small front deck in the 'jungle...

We stayed in one of the bungalows which are lovely but the decor is starting to look a little tired. The shower had an ok flow of water and the Internet was poor. On a positive note, the setting is wonderful, the beach is great and only a short walk into town. The staff are very friendly, Naty in the...

We have returned to Capitan Suizo many times because of the wonderful staff, relaxing atmosphere, great food and love the bungalows. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful and, if you return more than once, they remember you. The restaurant service is great as well as the food. Max, Angel and Marisalla in the restaurant are favorites of ours and are...

This is a lovely property setting. The beach is very nice and HUGE. The food is spectacular - hats off to a creative chef. The staff is terrific. Honestly, if you have kids I think you would be pleased with everything they have to offer as their concierge was spot on with recommendations on activities. We stayed in one of...

This hotel is right on the beach, has amazing grounds (I stopped counting at a dozen different kinds of flowering bushes, not to mention all the towering trees), and a fabulous chef who worked with my crazy dietary restrictions. I was worried that I wouldn't find the food that I need to eat. But they worked hard to please me,...

Fantastic location at one end of a beautiful white sandy bay. A charming boutique hotel with superior rooms in 2 storey blocks or bungalows. Lovely pool and restaurant and straight onto the quiet beach. Howler monkeys, iguanas, beautiful birds our constant companions in the grounds. A short walk into town which is a bit of a hippy, backpacker type of...

“Central American rustic luxury. Comfortable but expect small bugs and lizards in your room. You are at the jungle's edge along the beach.”
