    Amazing

    Capitan Suizo was the perfect beach getaway. We stayed for three nights and had a great time. The beach is beautiful with lots activities close by. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious; we really enjoyed the breakfast. Location is also great - about a 10-15 minute walk to town. Would definitely stay here again!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The property was beautiful. Enjoyed the pool area and beach. The breakfast dining area was very nice. Many food options and choices. Staff was very friendly. Loved the rooms. Rooms were very clean and spacious. it’s a 15 minute walk into town. No sidewalks most of the way so feels a little dangerous with the buses, cars and motorcycle traffic on dark roads

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We loved absolutely everything. The property is amazing. The beach is nicer than if you were to stay right in Tamarindo. The only improvement I can see would be if they changed the variety at the daily (included) breakfast. It was a great buffet but exactly the same every day. (Although ordering from the kitchen is an option it takes a considerable amount of time). Otherwise perfect.We will be back!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We booked this hotel super last minute. We got a great deal on it. Its probably one of the nicest resorts in Tamarindo. Little further from the craziness, directly on the beach. Sunset is beautiful. Rooms and food were great and everyone was very friendly! I would definitely stay there again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This hotel is in a perfect location. Just far enough away from the center of town to be quiet when you want quiet and close enough to walk the beach into the center of town (10 min walk). The hotel blends into the environment while retaining the facilities and amenities that we expected. The food was incredible, fresh, tasty, and plentiful. Beyond our expectations. The staff was available 24x7 to help us with anything we needed. We saw most of the other hotels in Tamarindo, and plan to return to Capitan Suizo next year. Thank you! Pura Vida!
