We got an upstairs room with an ocean view and were very pleased. We had a balcony with a table and chairs which was nice at night. It is very close to restuarants on the beach and a convenient place to travel from if you are going on any adventures. I would recommend to anyone travenling to Tamarindo.

We stayed at the Hotel Tamarindo Diria in early January at the end of our trip to Costa Rica. Although it was a nice hotel, there really wasn't anything outstanding about it - in my mind, it was a solid 3.5 star hotel with the potential to be a 4 star if they just improved on a few things.

Tamarindo is a surfing/beach town located on the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica in Guanacaste province. We chose Tamarindo as we were looking for a spot where we could find some surfing, scuba, snorkeling and a beachfront hotel all in th same place….and a spot that had some degree of “action” for the teens. Tamarindo certainly delivered on all...

I came here with 3 other friends and had an amazing time. The town itself is incredibly relaxing with wonderful beaches, surfing, quaint shops, and decent food. The room was clean and comfortable (with hot water, which is unusual in Costa Rica!). It's located right on the beach, although it now has 2 complexes, one across the road which isn't...

We had a great ocean view room. Also hotel is right in the middle of tamarindo "action". No elevators for those on upper floors. Stay here, eat elsewhere, their included breakfast is good. Forget ocean side restaurant. Expensive and sub par food. I had to send my Cesar salad back! Staff is very pleasant and helpful.

The El Diria hotel is really great. It is fairly large and covers both sides of the street with security ensuring that only guests are on property. On the "inside" there is a beautiful pool with a waterfall under a walking bridge and a swim-up bar. It's nicely kept and peaceful. On the ocean side, you'll find the main lobby...

Tamarindo Diria is in the best possible location on the huge Tamarindo beach It is in the middle of what must be a 2 mile long beach. The beach looks dramatically different depending on the status of the tide. At high tide the water is up close and perfect. At low tide, the water is out a very long way...

First, this resort is central to everything in Tamarindo. The facilities are immaculate, modern, and the breakfast buffet plentiful. The resort is just a few hundred steps from the beach. The beach was beautiful, but very rocky. However, the rooms are way too small. We stayed in the tropical poolside room during Christmas, and felt like we were on top...

The Tamarindo Diria looks like a 4star hotel, but it doesn't behave like one. We didn't get a smile from anyone working there, and the guest didn't seem all that happy, either. There was a lack of information that made everything difficult. Because there was no hotel directory (we asked three times and finally a maid told us there wasn't...
