We visited Hacienda Panilla with a group of 5 guys for a surf week at Avellanas and Langosta. The condo was perfect for our group, with flexible sleeping arrangements so everyone had their own bed. Having three suites with their own bathrooms also was a bonus. The decor, art, bedding, towels, and overall comfort level of the unit was exceptional. Definitely a great deal, and the waves were great all week. We ended up cooking almost everynight, and the kitchen was well appointed. We used the pool that is right next to the unit for lounging in between surf sessions and it was very private and relaxing. A few of us used the gym and that was a nice to have. We also really enjoyed the beach club (for drinks, appetizers, and a few meals). It is right next to Little Hawaii so it is very easy to have some relaxation time and keep an eye on the waves. The drinks and food were reasonable and tasty. It is about a 20 minute drive into tamarindo, and we thought that was about perfect. Hacienda Panilla has a resort quality and the security on property was also an added bonus. We went into town several times for meals, drinks, and hanging out. We also headed south to Lola's several times (great smoothies and fish taco's). Condo had plenty of space for lounging, and the high speed internet was reliable, and we used that a ton. We were able to stream in Netflix at night and just overall had a fantastic experience. We will be back!
