Still a special place

Second time here in as many years. Just love it. They do so much very well. From the clean rooms to the spectacular grounds and of course the ocean front beach property. They may be better places in Tamarindo but none can claim to have the perfect charm of Diria.

Top Hotel in Tamarindo

We have just completed two weeks at this hotel . We might be the first backpackers to walk into this hotel cold off the street. and spend two weeks, it is definitely not a backpacker hotel. It is a first class operation, everything is first class. The facility, the staff, the breakfast and the location --right on the beach. It is however not inexpensive.

Amazing visit

your staff was amazing, especially the bartender at the main pool, name Jaun? not sure about the spelling. very nice and felt safe. Would to come over again. takes over a day to get there but worth it, we stayed for about 8 days or so, it was a much needed vacation.

Surprised by all the high reviews

The location is the best in Tamarindo, the grounds are very well maintained, the bed was comfy and the ocean view rooms do have great views, but that's the end of the good news.I had an ocean front room for a week in what I was told is the oldest part of the hotel (all ocean front rooms are in the old part of the hotel). The room is very small and the bathroom really tiny. The hot water didn't get hot during the entire week I was there. I've travelled a lot and I can't recall a time when I didn't have hot water for an entire day, so not having it for the entire stay was way below any reasonable expectation. It's hard to like a place when you can't take a hot shower. I asked about it the first couple of days and the staff said the hot water was working fine, which I assume means it's just always bad. I talked with a couple staying in the same area of the hotel and they had the same issues. This might not be an issue in the newer parts of the hotel.The service was kind of hit and miss. Most of the staff was friendly but not particularly good or helpful. I had to chase housekeeping for towels probably 5 of the 7 days I was there. The front desk staff messed up my check-in and put me into another person's room and refused to acknowledge the mistake until I dug up my reservation and showed it to them. The tour desk staff was good but you'll pay higher prices on some things if you book here.Others have mentioned the breakfast being overcrowded and that was definitely the case during my stay. I tried several different times for breakfast and on day-4 just decided to eat somewhere else.I tried all 3 pools and I enjoyed the bar service at the two pool bars. Of the 3 pools I could only see the bottom at the adult pool, the other two were very cloudy for the entire week I was there and just didn't look or feel well maintained.I was really looking forward to this trip and really wanted to like this hotel but just couldn't get there. I'll probably come back to Tamarindo but I'll stay in a condo next time.

Diria hotel

Terrible service. Staff is clueless and does not understand basic English or basic arithmetic. They will overcharge you or try to scam you with hotel charges. Be careful and watch your bills closely. If you are staying in Matapalto condos they will force you to purchase a wrist band for $40 per person per day, of which $20 will be for the use of the grass area where there are lounge chairs and the other $20 per person must be used to purchase food or beverage at the hotel. If you don't purchase the wrist bands you will have a hotel security guard harass you or even you children. He accused my 11 year old daughter of trying to scam by using a fake white wrist band. These people are very low level, uneducated scammers. Do yourself a favor and skip this hotel and spend the extra money to go to The JW Marriot or the Four Seasons. You will end up spending as much after all the scams they pull.
