Very pleasant staff, owned by a French couple. They are very helpful in setting up excursions and ideas for different activities. Right on the beach, but a bit of a walk (10 minutes) to Tamarindo beach and downtown shop. Very good value for the money. Clean rooms.

Good location but no service and not that clean. Very basic would not stay here again. Did not feel safe as the lock on the door are flimsy. Restaurant closed when we went Owner wanted $100 deposit when other hotels did not require additional deposit even though room already paid.

We visited Tamarindo, CR 6/10 to 6/13. The hotel is very small but has most everything that anyone could ask for in a Hotel (no swimming pool). The lady that checked us in was so friendly helping us with check in and offered local recommendations that were spot on. Access to the beach was direct from the Hotel which is...

I am somewhat conflicted in this review. I stayed in the ocean view junior suite #11. Views were as promised and the balcony was a great feature. I would recommend this room. Additionally, all the hotel staff were friendly/helpful and the French bakery was tasty. However, the hotel has some flaws. The most ominous of which is pests. In our...

Family of three during the off-season. Used a on-line booking engine that provided some mis-information that had us in a room that would not accommodate three. This potentially disastrous mixup was quickly addressed and handled by the hotel staff and for one night we were actually given a much nicer room than what we paid for. The location cannot be...

You can't get any closer to the beach! They have a private section with hammocks and tables for you to enjoy at your leisure. There is a restuarant/ bar inside the hotel, they were very nice and helpful. The front desk ( in the evenings) was so nice and welcoming. we were blown away with the beach. I did wish...

Really enjoyed our stay here. In a great spot right on the beach and popular surf spot in Tamarindo. Room was clean. Amenities satisfactory...definitely fitting of the lower price. Shower wasn't like being at home or anything, but did the job. Bed pretty firm. AC worked great. French Bakery on site was pretty stinking awesome.

Good rooms, we stayed 3 nights and the rooms were comfortable, clean and nice. Good views to the ocean and good customer service. In the hotel, they have a restaurant that cook french food and bar with plenty cocktails options. Price no bad, depending of the season.

Great location, nice staff, clean rooms, a little bit noise because is in front of the main street, but in overall a 5 star hotel. Near from the beach, supermarkets, restaurants, souvenirs stores. If you have to come to Tamarindo to spend a couple of days working or resting I truly recommend you this nice hotel

Spent 4 nights in Hotel la Laguna del cocodrilo with my husband and we were very pleased with our welcoming as everyone was hospitable. From the front door receptionist to the bartender/waitress Ann, who pointed us in the right direction as far as places to go and things to do. She was great! Simple but clean rooms and extremely comfortable...
