This review is based on a budget place to stay in Tamarindo. I liked it and thought it had all of the essentials for a person traveling on a budget without wanting to stay at a hostel. The room was great and had great AC. The shower was a bit wonky but the owner Paolo seemed to want to take care of it after I left. The breakfast was enough and pleasant on the pool patio with a chance to meet guests here and there. Great central location right across the street from a supermarket so a quick pop-in to get some beer for the beach and I was on my way. Security guard at night that stays on premises. That made me feel better only because I travel with laptop and camera equipment that wouldn't fit in a safe and the door to the rooms were pretty flimsy. Everyone was really nice and helpful. Enjoyed my stay.
