We stayed in Joey's place during our trip through Costa Rica. First thing we were greeted with was a very chilled out Joey who has a 2 lovely dogs. He has a lovely set up with a pool, communal area for cooking and chilling out and even a fridge with chilled glassess. We stayed in the second floor honey moon suite which is a sweet set up. In every room there's amenities for cooking and a fridge and TV.
The place is up the top of the hill at the back of the town which means a bit of a walk home at night but you have great views of the area. Joey had plenty of recommendations for where to eat and what to do.
During our stay we did have a bit of bad luck and had our phones and money taken and Joey came down to the police station with us and spoke to the police for us as our spanish is poor and they don't speak english.....he waited around the police station with us till it got sorted and then dropped us back to get out bus out of Tamarindo. Despite the sour taste of being robbed we still have great memories of our stay in Tamarindo and I would definitely recommend staying with Joey in Casa Bambora
