“Great Stay at Tamarindo Vista Villas”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Our crew stayed there during a surf trip. Excellent location, helpful staff, relaxing atmosphere, great pool bar. Jessina on the staff there took care of us, especially when a couple of our guys were sick. She was excellent.

Good value, clean rooms and worked well for a group. It's on the outskirts of town away from all of the riff raff. You can walk 2 minutes to the beach to go surfing, hang out or walk along the river mouth.

Room Tip: Room 106 is good, has a patio and is a little quieter.

I would have to say our whole visit in Costa Rica was beyond magical but the Tamarindo Vista Villas sealed the deal! From the moment we arrived Adolfo ,who is a gem, at the front desk was beyond pleasant and accommodating to us and got us in the most perfect room. We had just arrived from a long drive and he made us at ease and could not have made the check in process more enjoyable. The other front desk team Gisel and Wendy were also beyond phenomenal, helping us with our tours, transportation and anything else we needed. They were by far one of the best hotel teams I have ever dealt with, not only are they all helpful but they the level of service is delivered with a genuine smile and makes you feel like you are home. Our room was perfect made in part by our amazing housekeeper Jesenia. Even on days we didn't need cleaning we came back to a gleaming hotel that will rival any other four star hotel I have ever stayed at and she was just the sweetest ever! Michael was also great for a chat and getting local information on things to do and see. The pool bar and restaurant are also great for a day relaxing by the pool and meeting people or dinner with amazing ceviche and the best chicken fingers and mojitosI have ever had. Plus the service and again cleanliness was an A+!! We found the location perfect, a hop, skip and a jump to the beautiful beaches and a less then a mile walk to center of town. We are both very active so the walk was pleasant to us but you can also take a very a cheap cab ride. What we enjoyed most about the location was that we could walk into all the excitement if we wanted but we were not in the middle of it every night. Ladies night on Friday is not to be missed and wow was it a great party. Live music, great drinks and tons of people...we retired early that night and had to problem with the noise level at all, the security really keeps everything tight. The Vista Villas is all around 10 and I have stayed in many hotels/resorts and never have I encountered the level of service, knowledge, cleanliness and friendliness as the Vista Villas. We left feeling as though we had a new family and I think we do as I received an email the day after we checked out from the sweetest Wendy at the front desk, "We woke up very sad our friends have left the hotel. We can't wait for your return!" I have never had a hotel send an email so personal and it really touched me. We plan on returning in August because we miss our extended Costa Rican family and we just can't wait to get back. The price, the staff, the service, the friends you make there exceeded any of my expectations and I am truly grateful for the experience we had at The Vista Villas and Costa Rica in general. A magical gem of a place...go make memories there!! PURA VIDA!!!

Room was very reasonably priced and in the perfect location at the edge of town. Easy walking distance to everything and our housekeeper, Jesenia, was amazing considering the amount of fun we were having! Every day it was a new room! We will be back.

Had a great time at the Vista Villas. Staff was great all around. Jesenia was very accommodating to our wacky schedule and was very helpful in keeping our place tidy. Loved the location and will definitely by back.

Thanks to all for the amazing service! Wendy was great in helping us with tours (canopy, horseback riding, Arenal Volcano, spa, catamaran, etc and arranging pickup for the airport (which was at 2am - ugh!) You have got to have Sharom make you a Monkey Poop - we became the "Monkey Poop Ladies" - may not be the nicest thing to be called, but it was spot on when it came to Bailey's!!! Have a hamburger called the Big Kahuna and you won't need to eat for 2 days!! Hotel is right across from beach access, within walking distance to town, beautiful pool with amazing views of ocean and coastline! We had a standard "mountain view" which really was not a "view" of mountains, but room was clean and large, shower was huge! If you plan on staying in your room on vacation, why go? Only con was the walk up to our rooms - either the 59 steps or the steep drive - better be in shape! Thanks to all for a wonderful time!

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms if you want a great view and place to sit outside

Paid around $100/night with tax and got an amazing bang for the buck. Located 2 blocks north of the strip close to the beach.

PROS - great food (really surprised us), $2 beers, nice pool with swim up bar, clean rooms with great ocean views (standard room - #306), well maintained, good WIFI speeds, fun bilingual staff

CONS - Tons of steps, children playing around pool, fairly quiet bar on weeknights, really nothing worth noting.

Room Tip: Must have ocean view
