Reviewed 27 January 2014

Eu e meu namorado passamos dois dias maravilhosos no hotel. Não há nada de negativo para falar. O lugar é maravilhoso, aconchegante, está muito bem localizado no centro de Tamarindo (a poucos passos da rua principal, mas sem o barulho da rua principal), e é puro charme. Os quartos, a piscina, a área de café-da-manhã... E os proprietários, Luis e Miriam, são pessoas incríveis e nos fizeram sentir em casa.

My boyfriend and I spent two wonderful days at the hotel. There is nothing negative to say about it. The place is wonderful, cozy, is very well located in the center of Tamarindo (just a few steps from the main street, but without the noise of the main street), and is pure charm. The rooms, the pool, the breakfast area in the morning ... And the owners, Luis and Miriam, are amazing people who made ​​us feel like home.

I heard about this place from a friend and took their advice to stay at the Luamey Hotel while visiting Costa Rica. Best Decision I made. It is close to the beach, so many restaurants around, great bed and breakfast, the pool was so luxurious and a perfect place to spend my anniversary with my husband and kids.

Will definitely recommend it to my friends and come back for my next vacation.

Wish I was there now.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask them for surfing lessons as soon as you get there. Wish I had done it sooner!

Driving through Costa Rica we stumbled across this gem,I am a 30 year veteran in the Hotel and Hospitality industry so there is true stock to be found in the following review .I was fortunate to find two ex - pat owner operators living their dream off the beach in the heart of Tamarindo .The hotel is boutique warm and tropical, rooms modern quiet and tasteful .Two minute walk to everything but far enough not to hear a sound,other than the monkeys and the birds above .The owners are passionate about ensuring that their guest experience is perfect .Attentive but not intrusive .If you are planning a trip to the Costa Rican pacific coast ,Tamarindo and Luamey hotel are a must do.

My husband and I found Hotel Luamey exploring the area. We stopped in to look around since it wasn't open on our previous trip to Tamarindo. Both Luis and his wife Myriam are excellent hosts. We stopped by for breakfast and lunch both were very incredible. We highly recommend the Caesar salad dressing which will exceeded expectations. If you are looking for a great breakfast or lunch as well as a very nice place to stay we highly recommend Luamey.

Home away from home is the best description for this place. The owners Luis and Miriam are the most genuine people ever.The rooms are newly renovated and clean. I highly recommend this place if you want to stay in heart of Tamarindo but hidden in your own little oasis.

We could not have made a better choice when deciding to stay at Hotel Luamey on our trip to Tamarindo over New Years Eve. Luis and his wife make the place feel like home. The grounds are gorgeous, peaceful, and private while also close to town, providing access to the beach and nightlife without a car. The room felt newly furnished and very comfortable with great A/C. The room also had a porch overlooking the pool where we enjoyed our complimentary breakfast of Tico Rico (eggs and rice and beans) with a cup of coffee and juice; a perfect way to start each day. The staff were very helpful in booking all activities as well as giving recommendations for local restaurants and shops, and I would highly recommend taking surf lessons as well as going out on a catamaran for a sunset cruise. If you're coming to Tamarindo skip over the flashier resort-like hotels and come to this gem.

Enjoy Hotel Luamey!

I stumbled upon this quaint little place while combing the town for a place to stay after a long drive and really feel lucky that I found it. The owners run the hotel and are on site at all times, they're really working hard to make this a great place - it's only been open a few months.

Clean, cozy, very friendly, and the price was right (during high season and holiday). Nice pool, free surfboards, and only a block walk to the ocean - but feels like you're a mile away in the jungle. Did I mention the family of howler monkeys that visits every morning?

Free breakfast from the menu (not a continental). You can't go wrong here. I don't think there's another place like it in Tamarindo.
