Nice little boutique hotel off the main strip but close to everything you need. Supermarket directly across the street. Check in was easy. Front desk was VERY accommodating. We booked the one bedroom with balcony. It had a (small) full kitchen! Including coffeemaker, pots/pans, toaster, etc. Ice cold a/c. Ceiling fans in each room including the bathroom. Balcony was spacious with a drying rack available for wet clothes. Ice machine and filtered water dispenser on premises. Available breakfast if you want. Pool available. Beach access is a five minute walk. Daily housekeeping is available. The hotel also arranged our transfers to and from the airport after we booked the room. Covid testing was also arranged in-room upon request. Checkout was effortless. Very satisfied with this location.
Of note, there is a bar behind the hotel that does play music during the evenings but the hotel does provide a sound machine bedside to use if the music gets too bothersome.
Hot water was available most times but Tamarindo is hot/humid enough that the cool shower felt nice.
Also, Costa Rica has bugs/ants. Don’t be surprised if some of those bugs/ants make it into the room. Don’t leave food or alcohol out. Because they will find their way.
Despite these little things I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for the great stay, Ten North! Pura vida!
