More about Tamarindo


No longer a sleepy surfer village, the Tamarindo area offers good restaurants, booming nightlife, adventure tours, and many lodging options. These are what we believe are the best Tamarindo hotels and resorts.

Renowned for its stunning beaches, party atmosphere, and excellent surfing, Playa Tamarindo is the ideal destination for visitors who want to explore a classically Costa Rican beach town. That said, the beauty of the area also means that visitors can find hotels that are a bit off the beaten path, giving access to bars and restaurants when desired while also allowing for a peaceful, nature-centered experience. Make sure to let your Travel Consultant know if you want to be near the life of the party or if you prefer a more isolated hotel or resort.

Beach Luxury

As Tamarindo is renowned for its beaches, it should come as little surprise that many of the finest hotels in the area are located within easy reach of Tamarindo’s white sands. When it comes to unparalleled luxury, Cala Luna is hard to beat.

Ideal for honeymooners and visitors hoping to escape to their very own tropical paradise, Cala Luna is one of Tamarindo’s most impressive hotels. Cala Luna is located mere minutes from the beach breaks that attract thousands of surfers to Tamarindo every year and is surrounded by swaying palm trees, verdant tropical forests, and stunning marine areas.

Although the scenery surrounding Cala Luna is truly breathtaking, the hotel itself is equally stunning. Boasting luxury suites with air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, and a range of other amenities, Cala Luna also offers guests the chance to relax and unwind in yoga classes or take a dip in the hotel’s private pool. Cala Luna is also home to the Cala Moresca restaurant, where the quality of the cuisine is matched only by the attentiveness and professionalism of the staff.

Rapidly becoming known as one of the most magnificent resorts in the continent, the JW Marriott Guanacaste is a unique 5-star hotel experience among Tamarindo Costa Rica hotels. This resort offers world-class quality while paying tribute to the richness of the Costa Rican tropical forest, beaches, and culture. Guests can expect an unforgettable experience at this elegant ocean-front resort featuring four restaurants, two bars, a full service spa, and an impressive 25,000-square-foot free-flowing pool featuring a sunken swim-up bar where you can enjoy a tropical lunch or refreshing drink.

With accommodations to suit every taste and budget, Tamarindo Costa Rica hotels are the ideal place to kick back, relax, and savor every moment of your Costa Rica vacation.
