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...

the upper room with the beach front views and the king size beds and excellent french bakery made this trip to Tamarindo a great visit. the hotel's front parking wasn't the greatest. but its location was good because of the views, I don't think you can get any better service from this hotel's staff. making adjustments for I and my...

We stayed two nights at this hotel and loved the beach, hammocks, and the on-site French bakery. You'll love the location, in relation to the night-life and to the beach. Its rooms are clean, small, and very basic - best intended for those who will be spending the majority of their time outside of their rooms. The front-desk service people...

Arrived late at night and yes, they were waiting there for us. Everyone there was so pleasant and accommodating our whole visit. Place was clean and comfortable. If we needed ice late at night all we had to do was ask the young man at the restaurant bar and he would give us some, if we wanted a yummy French...

we have been there a number of times, always go back to the same place--- Laguna del cocodrilo. Super French bakery on site that provides most of the town every day. You can pick up breakfast or lunch (take out, sit under the palms or on your patio or balcony) at a great price. It is quiet there as it...

Virtually on the beach in a quiet location, our comfortable air conditioned room had its own furnished terrace overlooking the garden and the beach. About 10 minutes walk to the town centre with many cafes, restaurants etc along the way. There is a French bakery on site that sells lots of tasty cakes, brioche and savoury snacks as well as...
