    Tamarindo Beach, Tamarindo - Map
    "Lovely hotel on the beach."
    We stayed at the Diria Hotel for 1 week at the end of January, 2016. Lovely decor and ambiance. Our stay was wonderful. The hotel is centrally located in Tamarindo, close to other restaurants and good shopping. The main part of the hotel is located right on the beach with the restaurant facing the ocean. The 2nd part of the hotel is across the main road with their rooms facing into a courtyard with pools, lush gardens, and swim up you have the option of spending time at the area on the beach side or enjoying a little more privacy and quiet in the garden & pool area. All hotel staff were pleasant to deal with. Our room was clean and spacious. The breakfast (which was included in our package) was wonderful - lots of choices, well prepared and laid out in a spacious dining area. Local wildlife are a treat to enjoy as they wander the property (birds, iguanas, cheeky squirrels).

    The Harmony Hotel

    Guiones Beach, Nosara - Map
    Each day at Harmony Hotel began with coffee made in my room and then enjoyed on the private outdoor deck where I could sit comfortably and check my work online. Around 6:30 AM, I would then proceed to the surf board checkout stand, sign out a board and then walk the private path to Playa Guiones and paddle out with all the other locals. Great, long rides in warm, clear water beneath the warm morning sunshine. Back to Harmony to shower off on the private deck of my room, and then breakfast at the Hotel....delicious. The Staff is very friendly. A little nap poolside before Yoga class and then meet friends in the spacious, relaxed Juice Bar. Thanks to David and Eduardo who were very kind and helpful.

    "Great if you need to be downtown"
    Would stay at this hotel unless you need to be downtown or want to visit the downtown sites. It is a busy, noisy, dirty area, but the museums and national theater and central market are all easy walking distance. The hotel was noisy with swarms of cars honking and driving by.

    "Nice hotel close to Arenal Volcano"
    We liked this hotel because it was very well situated, close to La Fortuna, the hot springs, Arenal Volcano and many of the amenities that region has to offer. The rooms had a private porch with rocking chairs, a private garden an a great view of the volcano. The staff was very cordial and helpful. Their hot springs pool was very small, but after spending a few hours in Baldi we still went at night with my daughter and son in law and it was very relaxing. The breakfast was very good, it had fresh tropical fruits, eggs or omelettes made to order, many dishes to choose from, great coffee and juices. I loved their bread pudding. The room was spacious and clean. We walked around the property and enjoyed all the tropical plants, flowers and trees. Everything was so well maintained. We checked out early and left our luggage at the reception desk for a few hours while we went hiking, that way we didn't have to worry to be back before noon to check out. That was very nice of them. We got two rooms, it seems like the rooms are spread up and linked in pairs. We were next to my daughter's room and we could hear from our bathroom when they were showering. If I was showering at the same time, there wasn't enough water. It wasn't a big deal. I still would come back to this hotel.
