I would like to thank Harry and Don't (best dog ever....so chill) for one of the most relaxing and pleasurable vacations I have had in years. Harry's hospitality, the cleanliness of the cabinas, the welcome coffee and water and the amazing pool made this a perfect escape pad. Having surfboard and bikes available also made this one of the reasons... More

We had a great time staying at Harry's. The place was super clean and had everything we needed. Harry is very nice and helpful on where to go and what to do. We really enjoyed the free bikes and surfboards that were both in very good shape. The pool and upstairs deck are in great shape and perfect for relaxing... More

From the time I booked until the time I left Harry was there for everything I needed. Even though I was the only guest at the time in Green, Harry checked up each day, provided local knowledge, and was always colorful. His place is a very short bike ride or 10 minute walk to the beach and the entire place... More

Just got back from our stay at Harry's. Upon arrival we received a thorough tour of the Cabina and property, both equipped with everything needed for our week long stay. The property is well kept, quiet and secluded - perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach or walking around town. Harry was available to answer any questions we... More

We stayed at Harry’s for 9 nights at the end of April, in Blue and then Orange cabina. We highly recommend it! Harry’s been very friendly and helpful. He gave us a tour of the place when we arrived, showed us surf spots and was always up for a chat about nothing and everything. The place is clean. Pool feels... More

We stayed with Harry for a little over a week in July of 2015. This place was amazing. The bikes and surfboards he had on site were an extra bonus for us as well. We rented a car and drove in from the Liberia airport. It was a little difficult to find, even with GPS and printed directions, but that's... More

We visited Tamarindo over spring break and we are so glad that we chose to stay at Harry's. It is the perfect location, far enough away from downtown, but just a short walk away from the beach and restaurants. Our cabina had just about everything that we needed (AC, wifi, TV, a video library, an e-book library) and if anything... More

If you’re reading this review, you are probably already looking for a place to chill, to cool off, to feel safe and secure as you put your head down at night in a comfy bed, to have coffee in the morning while you let your friends know where you are, to pick a lime off a tree beside your pool...

This was our first vacation in Costa Rica and Harry's El Escondite was a wonderful place to stay. We spent there 6 nights in late March. Harry was welcoming and very knowledge. He gave us tips on where to eat, where to shop, which bank to go to. He was a great sounding board. Harry's cabinas are off the main... More

Harry’s El Escondite may not be a 5-Star Luxury Resort but it’s big on 5-Star service including “Don’t”, Harry’s awesome "man's best friend" (the best trained dog I’ve ever met!), who is always there to greet you and ensure you arrived home to the property when you go out, especially during the evening.
