“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

The place was very nice and the hotel was very good. With direct access of the beach and very nice garden. We enjoyed the stay there. The pool side on the other side of the road was just 20m from our terrace and the night swimming was amazing. Hotel restaurant could improve a bit but the hotel has a pizzeria next to and another restaurant across the road. And that was very good.

We have to thank to the lady at the reception that checked us in. She was extremely helpful and she made our holidays unbeatable :-)

I visited here with a study abroad group and we all really enjoyed the hotel. It has a beautiful beach and is a very nice property overall. There is an onsite restaurant that offers a great variety. It is right in the middle of town and an easy walk to shopping, restaurants, etc.

Only downside was the Wi-Fi didn't work very well.

Tamarindo Daria has become oner the decades a 4Star resort. Has excellent pools and a great place to learn to surf. Best reached from new Liberia airport. Has many fair priced restaurants. Market a block away. They should have store in the hotel and a gift store. Bill Altaffer

Wonderful staff that Tim care of all our needs. Very clean and fun but still relaxing environment. Right of the beach with plenty of pools as well. Great morning breakfast with a plentiful variety of food and fresh fruit. Great bars to have a few drinks as well

Beautiful grounds the statuary and designs are first rate. Great service (some "no smiles" but are doing their job). Immaculate grounds, vistas, and pools. We were on the third floor beachside: knockout view of ocean, quiet. Ate there once the food was ok, but the breakfasts are spectacular and included in the price. We ate at Lola's, Palapas and the Langosta Beach Club (shout out to jimmy a waitor extraordinaire from the old school) the service was stellar and the food was out of this world. We rented a car and drove out of the town beautiful place but car not necessary. Enjoyed the beach but the vendors can get tiresome, nonetheless I bought decorative ware and wish I had gotten more! If you leave town for local beaches no vendors. No rain, but hot.

Room Tip: We were in room 308 and loved it (but no elevators).

Just finished having spent a wonderful week there. We stayed at the condominiums across the street. Beautiful and didn't mind crossing the street for the beach. We utilized both pools as well. From having traveled a decent amount, I felt that the main part of the Diria Hotel could benefit from better service, both being more friendly and more attentive in the restaurant by the pool. With that being said, we did spend time next door at the Flying Bull Restaurant that the Diria owns. Luis is absolutely wonderful, friendly, and most attentive. I feel the rest of the resort could benefit from him. Also a big shout out to a fabulous bartender who we called Caesar after Caesar the Dog Whisperer. We loved the location. We also had 3 eighteen year olds as well. Good luck Costa Rica in the World Cup. Enjoyed spending the wins with you. You guys have passion for the sport.

Room Tip: we stayed at Matapalo 701. Beautiful condo

This hotel is so wonderful. The rooms, the views, the food, the bar, the people, the pools, and most importantly the COFFEE.
The hotel is in a perfect location, no car needed, you can walk to everything you want or need. Best pizza in town is around the corner, shopping is all around, fishing, sunset tours, walks along the beach, watching the sun set every evening.
