Great location but horrible and rude front desk staff

The good: Amazing location right on a stunningly beautiful beach! Great surfing and paddle boarding, and located right in the center of the village - close to shops and restaurants. Hotel is safe and very clean - they give you a wrist band and then check it to make sure you are a guest. Multiple great restaurants to choose from and the breakfast as very good. Daniel, the waiter in the main restaurant, is amazing - one of the best waiters I've ever had!!! Brought flowers to my wife and my mother on Costa Rica's Mothers day. Now the bad: I can honestly say this hotel has 2 of the rudest front desk staff I've ever experienced - Stephanie and Tatiana. I booked 3 rooms through booking.com each with a king size bed that was confirmed by a follow up email from the hotel. Upon arrival I was told that the building with king size beds was under renovation and I would need to take rooms with 2 double beds. Fine - I can adjust. When I asked what the hotel could do as a small token for moving me to something less than I expected, the answer was a blunt and rude "we won't do anything - we charge the same rate for all beach front rooms". To make matters worse, Tatiana, the rudest front desk person I've ever had the displeasure of meeting, stated that all reservations at the Tamarindo for a specific room type are on a "best efforts" basis. She stated, "Even if you request a king size room you may not get one when you check in". I was stunned. What if I traveled with a friend and made a reservation for 2 beds and instead they gave me a king size bed? I don't believe that a room request on a reservation is "best efforts" for the Tamarindo - they sent me a confirmation email matching my reservation. The "best efforts" statement was a feeble attempt to cover their mistake. Booking.com confirmed that when you reserve a king size room and get a confirmation, then that is what you get when you check in. The issue is that not only did the staff at the front desk refuse to apologize or admit they made a mistake, they were incredibly rude when I asked for some token of acknowledgement that I did not get the accommodations that I had reserved. When I asked to speak to the manager I was told repeatedly "she is not available". Wonderful location if you choose to stay here but call the hotel to confirm your room well in advance and be prepared for a front desk staff that is not helpful.

Overpriced and old

We stayed here for 2 days earlier this month. Make sure that when you make the reservation that you specify that you want to be in the main hotel by the ocean. If you don't they will send you to their overflow portion accords the street. The room we had was so old and dirty. It had a moldy smell and we found mildew in the shower. The AC was by the bathroom and when we would close the bathroom door it made a horrible sound like the roof was going to fall down. The beds were ok, nothing spectacular. The pillows were horrible, super soft and your neck sinks into the pillow. Honestly, the only good thing was the pool and of course the beach. For the price you pay for a room I hoped to get a better room. My hubby said he felt like he was staying at an overpriced Motel 6. We will not be staying here again.

A really good place

Our arrival was a rough start!The girl at the reception didn't find us in her reservation list . We were waiting and waiting! No smile no welcoming word! Really tough! Nobody taking care of us .We fixed the problem by ourselves by calling our travel agent and then got our room. Large room! Huge view on the ocean! And then the magic atmosphere of Tamarindo was up to us! Beach in front of the resort! Surfers close to you ! The resort have many restaurants! Really good food in all of them ,not overpriced and staff very very sweet .They help you to choose they joke with you. Very sympathetic and tico! You're at home in this resort. The sunset village in front of the ocean has to be restored and the rooms need to be cleaners but in matter of fact the benefits largely outweigh the harms !! Definitely a place we'll miss !

Lovely Beach, Great Location and Great Friendly Staff.

We stayed there for 5 nights in low season, stayed in the pool rooms and had great time. Rooms were large and clean - bathroom was big but no plug in sink. Air conditioning in room broke down last night but was still comfortable with the ceiling fan on - they did offer an alternate room but we didn't move as it was our last night! They still gave us a discount off our bar bill Staff were brilliant and friendly - even the air con guy who came in on last night who didn't speak much English was a good laugh, Thanks Guys!

Loved everything about Diria!!!

From the moment we arrived everything was amazing. 2 couples total and our young bell hop Jonathan(?) was attentive and smiling and helping before any questions were needed! his positive aura instantly made us forget about the anxiety filled, 4 hour drive in the storm at night. Our beds and room were very clean. The A.C. didn't work and Jonathan made his phone calls and even offered different rooms showing true concern. we realized it just took 5 minutes for it to fully kick on. The morning Breakfast blew all expectations out of the water. full omelet bar, bread station, fresh fruit; you name it and they had it. Picturesque views everywhere! The entire staff made us feel at home. We saved the extra $ and were in 616 without an ocean view. However the pool scene was beautiful and included an all adult option. Both had swim up bars and we only saw a few kids in the family pool through out our stay! Our 30th birthday girl in the group chose the Hotel and couldn't have done a better job. situated in the heart of Tamarindo, I highly recommend Hotel Tamarindo Diria to couples and families! Aslo, we did Horseback riding, water rapids, ziplining, atv and other adventures through GoadventureCosta(?). A short walk from the hotel. Ask for Rolando and Rudolfo!!! they absolutely made our trip!!!
