What a cute little place. The staff were very sweet and helpful. There is a mini kitchen so you could cook. A few blocks from town. Felt safe. Wifi only worked if you were sitting near the office, not in your room. Tuly the kitty was very sweet. They did a load of laundry for us for $10.

About a 8-9 minute or so walk to the main intersection, or 10 to the beach, this quaint accom keeps the noise at arm's length, and has clean quarters, with a clean, if smallish, pool. Steybin was an incredible host, as we had rented out all of the rooms (7?) for some of our wedding party/guests. She was always asking... More

This little gem tucked away just a few yards from the main drag is the perfect place for couples or families to spend their time in Tamarindo. Away from the noise but close enough to walk to all the main attractions. The apartments are spacious, comfortable and clean and the full size kitchen is a pleasure to cook in (we... More
