Had our family visit us from the UK and wanted them to see the beautiful Pacific Coast in Tamarindo, Costa Rica.. We stayed at the Hotel Nahua that is a little off the main track but only 1/4 mile from all the shops and restaurants..The Hotel is so clean and well kept with great surroundings and all the relaxing areas...

Stayed at Nahua for 8 days. Great location, close to everything including the beach. Gabriella and her staff are very friendly and helpful. Weren't really happy with our first room and she upgraded us foc. Our new room was sunny and bright, kitchen included which was great and the 'master bedroom' separated by a wall and stairs from the main...

Rented the apartment there , amazing place worked with nature in its structure. Has an Outdoor garden pool, howling monkeys in the morning, cows walking down the street at night, a cat and a very quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Also has wonderful staff! Very close walk to tamarindo's main road/all amenities, Would love to stay again!!

We were new to C R and had a lot of questions before and during our trip; staff at Nahua were attentive and prompt in looking after all our enquiries - they also arranged our airport pickup and transfer to Monteverde. I appreciated all staff including Lucy, Gabriela and the cleaning crew. One reviewer mentioned free breakfast - it isn't...

We booked fairly last-minute and stayed for one night in January. Looking back we were lucky because it was during high season and the Nahua was booked solid in the days after - to the extent that the 11:00am checkout had to be strict. Wife was happy with the room - this is the most important test! Room was not...

Thank you so much for your comment! We are glad that you enjoyed the night with us even it was only one. And yes, check-out is strict, in high season it is difficult for us to clean all room, because check-in is at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. We try to do our best to not disturb you, but we...

Negatives:My room was very basic. There was no chair and no desk, only the bed, a small low table, refrigerator and two very small nightstands. The entrance door was a sliding glass door with only a simple latch for locking and security, much less secure than the normal doorknob and dead bolt. The faucet in the bathroom was very loose,...

I stayed here in November for nearly two weeks. My one regret, is not enjoying the pool more. I would definitely stay here again. The beds were comfortable, the atmosphere relaxed, and the people that run/own the place are fantastic. Its very convenient to down town Tamarindo, but just far enough away to have some privacy. Looking forward to my...

This hotel is clean and it is surrounded by a beautiful tropical lush... The rooms are really too modern to be in such a place! And they are made of cheap quality stuff... The owner and her staff are nice and helpful though but it is not a place to go if you like the typical touch of Costa Rica!

What a room! Newly renovated, spacious with a gorgeous blue wall I could almost swim in. A contemporary open vibe with a luxurious shower, AC, and lovely pool.

Hotel Nahua is a really lovely place right in the heart of Tamarindo. The staff here are incredibly warm and accommodating and the value is very good considering the location. I only give it four stars because there are clubs nearby that play really loud music well into the night, making it difficult to sleep unless you bring earplugs. But...
