Honnestly, if you are looking for high end at affordable rates, book this place.
This is a select 6 room, boutique hotel, feels like a private villa, great rooms( but ask for the rooms overlooking the pool), pay the extra charge, definitly worth it. The owners are experts, cubans based there since 12 years, they will make your visit on the peninsula great.
Breakfast are to die for, attention to details, 5 stars in my book!

The warmth and beauty of this small, boutique hotel is generated by the professionalism and hospitality of its owners... the service, the food, the overall vibe is a 10 out of 10!!! The rooms are oversized, quiet, modern, the breakfasts are not to be missed, the common living/dining area is comfy and hip, ... words really don't do it justice... will definitely return!! Thanks to Bathsheba and Joe for making it all possible..pura vida!!!

We stayed at Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel and were treated like true guests. The breakfasts were an exemplary display of the culinary arts in a perfect tropical setting. The owners are personable, helpful, and will go far beyond all expectations for helping set up tours, transportation, and more. If we were to return to Tamarindo we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This place is a true gem. A friend and I ended up staying here by chance on our last night in Costa Rica and we loved everything about it.
This hotel is located just a short walk from the beach and the main street of Tamarindo. We had no expectations coming here and were absolutely blown away with wonderful grounds, luxury rooms and beyond phenomenal service.
I have just looked at their website for the first time (as I said, it was by chance that we ended up there) and can confirm that pictures of the property depict 100% of what you get. We stayed at deluxe room and LOVED our outdoor rain shower. Room décor as well as the property grounds are designed with the modern, contemporary but sophisticated outlook.
But what really sets this place apart is their extraordinary service. We met both owners, Bathsheba and Joe, and they were both very personable, made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay and some more…they really make you feel like a family here. Again, I had no idea Bathsheba is a chef until just reviewing their website, but it now totally explains why the breakfast was so delicious. My friend loves pancakes and eats them very often for breakfast and she claims that these fruit filled ( fruit comes from their private garden) were, by far, the best pancakes she ever had.
Just for the comparison, before this hotel we also stayed at 2 other hotels in Tamarindo , one being Tamarindo Diria hotel, and if given the choice again, would prefer staying at TBBH, hands down.

My husband, Alfonso & I had a the pleasure of being the first guests for the soft opening of Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel in Playa Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was our honeymoon and we could not have asked for a better location to spend it in!! The rooms are larger than average and the very “ zen “ style décor lends an air of absolute peace and tranquility. It’s hard to believe you are only minutes away from the bustling Tamarindo nightlife!

The breakfast of fresh fruit and delicious local style food makes every morning exciting and fun to look forward to. The owners/ hosts are incredibly helpful and have a very good knowledge of the town and everything it has to offer. The hotel recommend some really get tours and impressive guides, all customized to our tastes and interests.
Tamarindo Beach was everything we had hoped for. Fun bars and great restaurants as well as amazing nature trails where we saw monkeys, an array of tropical birds and my husband’s favorite, iguanas!!
We definitely plan to go back and we have already decided we are going back to Tamarindo Bay Hotel, to make sure we have yet another memorable vacation there!
