This is a lovely property setting. The beach is very nice and HUGE. The food is spectacular - hats off to a creative chef. The staff is terrific. Honestly, if you have kids I think you would be pleased with everything they have to offer as their concierge was spot on with recommendations on activities. We stayed in one of...

This hotel is right on the beach, has amazing grounds (I stopped counting at a dozen different kinds of flowering bushes, not to mention all the towering trees), and a fabulous chef who worked with my crazy dietary restrictions. I was worried that I wouldn't find the food that I need to eat. But they worked hard to please me,...

Fantastic location at one end of a beautiful white sandy bay. A charming boutique hotel with superior rooms in 2 storey blocks or bungalows. Lovely pool and restaurant and straight onto the quiet beach. Howler monkeys, iguanas, beautiful birds our constant companions in the grounds. A short walk into town which is a bit of a hippy, backpacker type of...

Our family was delighted with every aspect of Capitan Suizo. The bungalow was very charming and accommodated us with our teenagers well. The food was delicious and we ate dinner there every night! We'd highly recommend the caramelized bananas with ice cream! The ceviche is out of this world. We believe we found the perfect location to satisfy all of...

We visited this hotel during spring break with our kids (15 and 17). The hotel is easy to find and is just past the main Tamarindo town area, so you are close enough to walk to town (either on the beach or the road), but far enough away to avoid any noise. The rooms were spacious, the AC worked great,...

This hotel is truly beautiful. There are gardens which are very lush and you can see the monkeys and other animals. Pool is lovely and so is the beach..Overall a relaxing, quiet hotel. Food- only ate breakfast here which was very tasty. Fruit, eggs, sausage, oatmeal, etc. Dinner and lunch prices are high, so we went into town to eat....

This was the best restaurant meal we had while staying in Costa Rica. The 4 course meal was well presented, each course came with an explanation by our waiter, and the overall service was excellent. This Friday night dinner while a bit on the pricey side comes with entertainment and of course hearing the ocean while dining is just wonderful....

We booked our stay at Capitan Suizo based off other reviews on Tripadvisor and I can honestly say, we were not disappointed in the slightest. From the minute we got to the hotel, we felt taken care of. We stayed 4 nights at Capitan - 3 of those nights we ate at the restaurant on the property and it was...

This was our second trip to Costa Rica and our stay at Capitan Suizo was relaxing and luxurious. It was wonderful to walk from our room right into the ocean or to take long walks on the beach. The food was fresh and wonderfully prepared. We felt pampered and very welcome. A good choice.

We had a great time. It's a beautiful resort and the staff is awesome. It's fun to be ON the beach, right at the pool and restaurant...and see monkeys on the roof! Pura Vida! It's great for families and the food is great.
