This is an awesome place. Before I say anything else I would give one big warning, if your not an animal person or hate bugs like huge ants, you might want to reconsider C.R. even. It might have been our room, but it was crawling with ants. That put aside, it is a great place to relax, No TV's, but surprisingly to me since I have a big flatscreen with Direct TV and TiVo, I did not even need it.
The hotel is right on the beach and at the end of Tamarindo so you are about a 15 min walk from the town. We only went to the town a few times becuase we found the food at the hotel to be great. Even their breakfast which was included in our package was great. The Honeymoon Bungalow is definitly the way to go, the only draw back was we found the upstairs bed to be a slight wobbly, but we were jsut fine with it. You have an in ground bath tub and an outdoor shower. I saw a review about that, it wasn't so bad, If someone really tried I guess they can see you showering, but it's not like your just out there and everyone can see you.
For you romantics out there, I reccommend reserving a table for dinner on the beach. It was pretty private for us becuase no one else had made that request so we were the only ones on the sand having diner. It made for a really romantic evening. I reserved it without my wife knowing and it made for a great surprise.
We also had our lunches there and the food was just fine, really, theres no need to go the town if you don't want to.
One more thing, we also did one of the adventres, we did a catamaran trip with Snorkeling through the hotel. It was pricey, but it was pretty cool. In case you want to shop around, try to get Marlin Del Rey. The people are super awesome and attentive, it included Snorkel, Food, Booze and music. The snorkle was okay, waves were a little harsh and couldn't see very well through the water.
If you compare this to Diria, Diria looks great becuase it is right in the middle of town and has a swim up bar and everything, however, I think sometimes your not allowed to swim on their beach and it looks like most of the hotel is actually across the road even from their pools. So if your looking to party it up sick Diria might be more of the place for you unless you don't mind a cab ride away or a 15 minute walk.
