10/10 Exceptional

Amazing stay love tamarindo
Was so good we wanted to stay another night. Right in the middle of the action, if you're not out then bring earplugs. Wouldn't stop me from going back. Friendly helpful staff, nice breakfast fresh cakes and pastries, beautiful clean room and met some great people there.

2/10 Poor

This property is terrible. When booking rooms on Expedia they only give you the rooms in the lobby, which are extremely loud and not private. The rooms often have power problems, ac that dont work, or water that doesnt work.

use as last means of choice
Well this place is WAY over priced to what it offers. the condition of the room of the room (which I will provide pictures), to how noisy it is to the club and restruent right behind the hotel. the staff were nice and helpful for sure. the hotel says breakfast is included, they don't mention is only pastry and coffee at the cafe called Sol. As I said £400 for four nights you except good breakfast and good condition of the room. my bed had hair on the pillow and bedsheets first thing I noticed

The room I stayed and looked nothing like the pictures. The bed had busted Springs on one side and was very uncomfortable. Also my speaker went missing out of my room, not sure how that happened.

2/10 Poor

This room was right besdoe the reception desk. I could hear everything they did all day. Thw door actually hits the chairs when you open it. There also was no room service, no curtians, no mini fridge, no microwave. It was the worst rental ive had here.
