This is a very friendly and clean place. It is a typical economy style...ok beds and warm water for showers. There is a little pool and sun deck. If you need a place to stay that is quite and clean, this is it

A perfect place for a peaceful visit to Tamarindo.The bungalows are quaint and clean. I would prefer this to a hotel room any day. You will feel welcome and at home right away. The location is approximately two blocks from the beach. This was a nice reprieve from the crowds of the downtown area. The hotel was close enough to...

A little oasis two steps away from the ocean. Perfect to chill out, pool with swim up bar and delicious italian food. Evryone at Luna Llena is welcoming, friendly and always ready to give the right hint to explore Costa Rica.

Food was good, we just tried fish Casada and tuna steak. It's in the...

Pino and Simone were the most gracious of hosts. Even though we only stayed one night we felt like we made new friends. This lovely spot is a very short walk to the beach and all the activity of Tamarindo, but this spot is quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was excellent and Simone was very helpful with directions to our next...

This is a smaller family run place that makes you feel right at home. The staff is friendly, the place clean,and the breakfast is excellent. Located just a short distance from the city central, an easy walk, you won't miss any of the sites or services of the town central. But the hotel is quiet, peaceful and relaxing, a very...

Hotel Luna Llena was a perfect fit for our relaxing holiday. I traveled with a friend and we felt very much at home. We stayed for 5 nights in a room with a king sized bed, bathroom and kitchen. Our unit had all of the basics required for cooking and it was very clean. There were wonderful housekeeping services each...
