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...

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...

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...

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...

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. Harry is accessible to help with whatever...

My brother and I were looking for a place to stay during our week in Tamarindo, and we were lucky to find a cabina with a kitchen, private bathroom, and two beds at Harry's. The location is perfect- it's a short walk to the beach and downtown, and far enough from the bars that it's very quiet. We went during...

We traveled to the Tamarindo area in mid February and spent an incredible 7 nights at Harry's El Escondite.

My boyfriend and I had an exceptional time at Harry's. Harry was an excellent host, he makes sure you know what to do and where to go. Perfect location, minutes from the beach and restaurants but just far enough that you get peace and quiet during the evening. Our time here was great and we would definitely stay again.
