Just what you would expect in an average vacation rental, nothing spectacular, but clean except for the and comfortable. Sort of in the middle of nowhere so you definately need to rent a car therefore you need to factor that into the cost of staying here. Office help only spoke Spanish. Not at all helpful for us.

Patrick's comment is helpful. I remember Patrick emailing us, but not making a reservation. I see from our security report that there were 3 guys and 1 girl in his apartment when he stayed at The Oaks, perhaps an independent rental from an owner? The Oaks is designed for couples and for families. It is NOT designed for two guys...

We now live at the Oaks Tamarindo and love it. The landscaping is beautiful with lots of native plants and palms. The service is great with very prompt attention to needs. The pools (There are three to choose from) are amazing! Our condo is a little small for the four of us, but we manage. If you are looking for...

Mike came to The Oaks for a one month rental, stayed, and now he and his family are residents. They are a perfect example of the tenants we want, a family of friendly, nice people.

We spent 5 days at the oaks. The apartment is very clean, fully equipped and right next to the tamarindo town. We travel with 4 years kid who didn't want to leave the pool. The supermarket is 5 minutes away, all the kitchen equipment is in perfect condition. There is a grill area at the pool. Also a grill in...

I went with my sister and my cousin about a month ago. Very beautiful place, lovely view and excellent service. Easy access even if you don't have a car. Bus stops in front of the place or you can get a cab. If you are not into crowds this is a great place, it's not far from town so you...

The oaks exceeded expectations with how beautiful the facility is kept and the interior of the condos. The pools are large and very well maintained. The location is good, you are within five minutes driving to the nearest beach and shopping center. Would highly recommend!

We rented a condo from an owner that doesn't spend all winter at the apartment. We had a ground floor unit next to a pool. This unit was modern and only a few years old. I understand that some other units are not furnished as well, so I guess we were lucky. Situated about 10 minutes drive from Tamarindo (yes...

This was a great place, with a really good location just outside Tamarindo, but not in the boondocks. It is actually a condominium development which still has unsold units. The developer rents those units to tourists. Our units (we reserved two) were almost new, and were clean and fully equipped. The grounds were clean and well maintained and we loved...

A lovely gated community/hotel just ten or so minutes from Tamarindo and surrounding beaches. It was very peaceful and quiet, pools were great, owner gave us lots of recommendations of things to do and see. Units are super clean and very spacious. Overall highly recommend!! But probably not good if you don't have you're own means of transport.

Our first stop in Costa Rica was perfect after a long, dark drive from Liberia near midnight. Security was waiting and aware of our arrival. One personal lead us to our unit. We open the door to a modern, clean 2 bedroom unit on the 2nd floor. The air conditioning was welcomed after a long day of traveling. The Oaks...

Thanks for the great review. We have been collecting reviews from our guests of their favorite beaches, tours, river rafting, volcano, zipline, turtle watching and so on, and are providing that information free on check in. It should be in the information book in your apartment the next time you come, or you can ask in advance and we can...

We booked our stay on short notice with very little research on Costa Rica nor our accommodations.
