We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Esplendor Tamarindo. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the views are just stunning and very well taken advantage of. We had a spectacular view from just about everywhere. The breakfast in the morning is delicious and filling which is perfect before a day of activity on the water. The staff are very courteous and prompt. The refrigerator in our room didn't work upon checkin so we called reception and it was fixed within five minutes, literally. The hotel staff made us feel extremely welcome and treated us like old friends. The shuttle service to the city and the beach club made our stay worthwhile because without it, we would not have stayed at Esplendor. The beach club is awesome with delicious food and incredible staff. Everything you could want for an amazing beach vacation is there. We just cannot stress enough what an incredible stay we had there. We would absolutely recommend this hotel! We left yesterday and we already want to come back! We only had one slight problem with the shuttle one of the evenings we were there as we could not get in touch with them to pick us up, but the owner of the beach club graciously took us back to the hotel because he didn't want us to have to wait until we could get through. And as for the review someone left about being able to see a "trash dump" from the hotel, it was barely noticeable and really was not an issue to us at all. I probably would not have even noticed if not for that review.
Just far enough away from the chaos of downtown Tamarindo. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Rooms were comfortable. Waves large enough for surfing if you are not a hardcore surfer. Monkeys and iguanas on the property. Can't wait to go back!

I travel a lot and each time I go to a "all inclusive property". After landing to Liberia and driving to Tamarindo I was thinking this is going to be my first and last trip to Costa Rica.
Check in was very easy and fast. This is a family run business and all members are very friendly.
Breakfast is included in the price and it is yummy. A lot of choices. The products are really fresh and tasty.(check the picture). This hotel is running from a wonderful Italian family with a lot of expirience. Paola was the manager of the hotel and our guide to all activities. Very professional. Don't forget a lot of activities in Costa Rica. Check with her for good prices. I wish to have more time to talk and talk but long story to make it short I definitely will return to Costa Rica because of this wonderful experience I had at hotel Flores. Thanks Paola, thanks to every member of the hotel.
Beautiful villas situated on a hill overlooking the ocean is what we asked for and what we got. But the conditions started to be a problem when the air condition starts to cool down the place after 6-8 hours. While waiting, bugs just infested the place and started eating us alive. There just needs to be more investment in the air condition and prevention from the bugs to come into the villa... I mean, we are on vacation and just want to relax. The couple taking care of the place were darling and breakfast by the poolside was quite comfortable. I think there just needs to be a bit more renovation to be paradise.
With its white sandy beaches, Tamarindo is a resort town on the Pacific coast that is backed by mountains and national parks. The sun shines nearly every day in Tamarindo, and visitors travel to the area to relax outdoors while fishing, golfing, swimming, and visiting spas. Tourists also take time to experience the local culture and fresh Costa Rican seafood dishes.
