    Best CR trip to date!

    This was our 1st stay in Tamarindo and at Capitan Suizo and both did not disappoint. The high rating is well deserved! It could not have been a better stay. The hotel is absolutely perfect in every way. The staff from Raul at the front desk to Nubia in the restaurant cannot be kinder and more caring about all your needs. The distance from town is perfect, far enough from the noise but only a 8-10 walk from the beach or street level. We will definitely be back.

    Fantastic

    This place is perfect in every way. Beautiful grounds, large pool, plenty of chairs at pool and beach. The room was extremely spacious. The bed was comfy, lots of soft pillows. This hotel is near the end of Tamarindo beach, so its more secluded, but within a 5 minute walk on the beach to 10 other little restaurants. Great place will come back for sure.

    Truly a Tropical Paradise

    Absolutely beautiful grounds surrounded by lush greenery and steps away from the beach. Our wonderful host, Wilfredo was informative, kind, accommodating and upgraded us to a charming and cozy bungalow with an outdoor patio, shower, lounge chairs and hammock! We wish our stay here was longer. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the ambiance right on the beach is magical. Highly recommend for peace, quiet and relaxation in pristine nature.

    Amazing

    Capitan Suizo was the perfect beach getaway. We stayed for three nights and had a great time. The beach is beautiful with lots activities close by. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious; we really enjoyed the breakfast. Location is also great - about a 10-15 minute walk to town. Would definitely stay here again!
