Is this a good place to stay for my wife and I to go surfing? And do the rooms face the beach?
Absolutely, a great place to go surfing! We are across the street from the beach. Most of our rooms face the pool/gardens. Our Mono Casita apartment has ocean views from the living room, kitchen and dining area. Check out our web page for photos of the property.
Sorry the delay in answering. I think this is a very nice place for a couple to stay. The actual beach is 100 meters from the front of the hotel, through a dirt road with lots of trees. So you can't see the beach from the hotel. Surfing happens all up and down the beach, with classes and people offering to teach. I didn't surf, so I can't say if the Tamarindo beach is the best for surfing.
