    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    The resort is not in Tamarindo, and will not help with transit or calling cards except through their own company. Also, there was no Costa Rican food!! Very wlexpensive choices with almost nothing for vegetarians. No chairs on the beach, no lifeguards. Staff is very nice. We transferred to a smaller hotel in town which was much more enjoyable, with access to all the restaurants of the town.
