This is a beautiful resort in a great location on the pacific. On accommodations and food all good. But if you go here know this.

We brought our kids, ages 7-8. The pool was beautiful, we always found a spot to hang out. The beach was pretty with wildlife. It is a partially rocky beach and had riptides when we were there so we didn’t really feel safe more than...More

Lucky to have stayed for a 2nd time at the JW Marriott Guanacaste. This visit was for a work event, which allowed me to see even more of the excellent group event customer service.
The grounds of the entire hotel are clean and immaculate. During...More
JWs are top of the range and this one is no exception. We had a room with ocean view, a lovely balcony to sit on and all the mod-cons I expect from a first class hotel. Towel service for the swimming pool was excellent in...More

Thank you Zgoody for you great comments!
Is gratifying for me to know that you spend a wonderful time even better than the first time. Hopefully will be better next year.

Breakfast was included with our booking and was a very good, huge buffet (I mean expansive). There are at least five restaurants, and I may have missed one. The prices vary from typical pub prices at the sports bar to high end steakhouse. Most of it though (I thought) falls in line price wise with what you’d expect from most hotel fare of this rating. We had dinner one night at the Thai-inspired place, which was stellar in food and service, and entrees were about $20-25 for the most part. Our burgers at the pub were between $12-15, but the service was terrible. You are about 20 minutes from Tamarindo where there are grocery stores and a ton of eateries. Many of the ones on the main road through town are pretty expensive as they’re all owned by the Diria hotel. My favorite spot in Tama is La Oveja Negra (The Black Sheep). Super tasty and affordable outdoor dining.
