I am a long-time ZIH traveler and rate El Tamarindo's rooms and overall property very highly. Reasonable prices for a lean, quiet, comfortable, room, with no fuss and easy to coordinate communication on dates and rates. This room had a small fridge, coffee maker and few dishes and utensils for convenience, as well as 2 fans, and good AC (when needed). Tiled bath with shower. Common areas like breezy roof deck with several hammocks and well-tended gardens are nice, too. Safe and secure place to be, and just a 10 minute walk to ZIH's best beach, Playa La Ropa, a dozen or more area restaurants, or hop the bus (85 p) right out front or a taxi (50 p) to centro - which is just about a mile away.
