We stayed here 7 years ago and have been eager to go back ever since. This time we stayed four nights - and swore to each other that we'll spend more time when we return to lovely Costa Rica.
This hotel has an incredibly nice atmosphere with friendly, attentive and very competent staff. The garden, one of its main attractions, is big and full of old trees that were there before the hotel. It is maintained without chemicals and the animals are well cared for - which is why you'll most likely see more animals from your poolside recliner than anywhere else in Costa Rica.
The rooms are really nice with all amenities. Most rooms don't have AC (for environmental reasons) but are built with natural airing and efficient fans. We were quite happy without it.
The breakfast buffet has everything a person can wish for - even banana milkshake in a jar. Our son couldn't get over that!
Tamarindo is a dirty and overrun place (however, it does have a certain charm), but Capitan Suizo is just far enough away so that you're not bothered by it, yet close enough so that you can reach it by foot along the beach. The hotel concierge is competent and friendly and will book any activity you wish for. Surfboards and boogieboards can be rented at a very fair price.
The only downside I can think of is that the lunch- and dinner menus are rather dull, but that will never keep me away from this wonderful place.
