    Straight forward and great location!

    We loved our stay at Hotel In The Shade! While the amenities are somewhat minimalist, the location can’t be beat and the staff was incredible. The only thing I’d suggest changing was the unusual payment process used here. Even after booking with a credit card on a booking platform like Hotels.com, they require you to either pay in cash upon arrival or pay an additional 11% fee if you want to pay via credit card. Great property but this payment situation would give me pause about staying in the future with so many other options in the area that accept card without a fee

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Room was comfortable and quiet, even though outside there was music, you couldn't hear a thing inside the room. Small and cozy, perfect for a quick get away for young couples, but not to stay in all day. The hotel is basic, although very comfortable and a nice pool, but the restaurant and staff is not present. There's no front desk, just the manager that gives you her phone number in case you need anything. She was nice and helpful, but the whole dynamic seemed like a self-service type of hotel. Not sure if it was because of the whole COVID-19 siatuation or not. I have no complaints, the hotel is very centric and you can walk to Tamarindo downtown to all the restaurants, bars and the beach. There's a pharmacy, supermarket, bank and ATM very close by too, so location is very convenient. Recommended for a budget quick get away to Tamarindo!

    Victor and his wife own the property and they were super friendly and terrific hosts. The room was clean and well appointed with huge TV and large shower. It was an excellent experience. Only thing is they do have 2 young children so don't expect a total child free environment.

  • 2.0.Poor

    DISGUSTING treatment overall

    Overal stay very disappointing, the first part of my stay my shower wasn’t working at all and only a drip of water. The staff are only there until 4-5pm and I booked my taxi in the morning just before 11.40am only waiting over an an hour and a half to leave made me loose my flight costing me 2.5k to get home back to London !!!!!!!!! Absolutely fuming ! NEVER AGAIN would I stay here

    We were greeted by friendly staff by the pool upon arrival and the check in process was easy. Reminder: the reservation on Expedia is only a hold, you must pay cash or you’ll get charged an 11% credit card fee. We’d forgotten this but she said we could go get cash and pay the next day so that was nice, there’s a bank nearby where you can withdrawal cash. There were a few ants in the room, but somewhat to be expected in Costa Rica. The walls are thin, you can hear conversations from the pool and there was a restaurant behind our room that we could also hear the kids running around/yelling. They have filtered water available to refill bottles, which is a bonus! We didn’t eat at the cafe but the coffee was good. Easy 2ish blocks walk to the beach and they did provide pool/beach towels. The pool was really nice, too!

    Highly recommend staying here

    Great hotel in the heart of Tamarindo. Superb staff and very nice owner who are all very helpful and go the extra mile. Highly recommend staying here! We loved itBook the turtle nesting tour with their guide, he was super knowledgeable and taking care that the turtles have their time to make the nest vs. other guides that night were impatient and didn’t care much and almost scared off the turtle.
