Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Review Summary

Photos and Review by


  • Right on Tamarindo Beach, near shops and restaurants
  • Clean, comfortable rooms
  • Two restaurants (one overlooking the beach), two bars, and a cafe
  • Two pools: One near the beach, and a larger pool across the street
  • Free breakfast buffet
  • Tour desk on-site


  • No in-room Internet (but free Wi-Fi in lobby)
  • Hotel has two sides, across the street from each other
  • Not all rooms have balconies
  • Some complaints of slow bar service
  • Bumpy, 1-hour drive from Liberia Airport

Bottom Line

For an affordable mid-range hotel right on Tamarindo Beach, this 183-room property is a solid bet (particularly for the young and party-minded). The central location is within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants, and rooms are comfortable, if not luxurious. But the hotel is split in half -- one side is near the beach, and one is across the street, where the larger pool is located -- which some may find inconvenient.

In the small town of Tamarindo, right on the beach

Map of Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort

The Tamarindo Diria is located right on Tamarindo Beach, within easy walking distance of the small town's restaurants and shops.

Guanacaste is a dry, sparsely populated area of the country that's known for its beautiful beaches (including ones where sea turtles nest), surfing, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, and its string of large resorts. The region is home to seven national parks, including Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park, where visitors can hike past boiling mud pots and smoking fissures. Guanacaste has a lower elevation than other areas of the country and an arid climate, so there are no rain forests here, but the dry tropical forests are still wildlife rich: Visitors can spot howler monkeys, sloths, white-faced capuchin monkeys, and iguanas.

  • 4.5-hour, $240 taxi ride from San Jose International Airport, or a 6-hour, $40 per person ride on a hotel shuttle
