Pros: Great location, clean, good shower, comfortable beds. Restaurant opens at 4pm and was fine for dinner, snacks and drinks. Beach two minutes walk and almost private considering how few people were there. A number of restaurants, bars, markets within a few minutes walk.
Cons: As the restaurant is closed on Mondays it seems the staff forgot they also had guests in the cabinas that day. Another guest called management to come turn on the pool lighting which they did promptly. Management could also have informed us that bus service was not available due to bridge construction nearby.

Pros: Big thanks to Daniel who drive us to airport. Very difficult to find transport to airport. We are so grateful.
6.0 Good
Pros: Fat Daddy himself was extremely friendly and welcoming-who we met near the end of our stay. Food at restaurant located on the property was delicious. Having the option to eat at the little private table outside our room was a nice touch. AC worked well.
Cons: Odd check-in. Access gate was not obvious and staff didn't respond to our requests to be let in. Daniel (manager) was not friendly, seemed annoyed that we were checking in and didn't provide any info other than where our room was located. Internet did not work for the entire duration of our stay, which was two nights. Rooms looked a lot nicer in pictures: Cleanliness could be improved (lots of cobwebs and dust), sheets were torn and discoloured, room was in minor disrepair (holes in wall at TP dispenser). For $100USD per night our expectations were not met. Rooms weren't cleaned or tidied at all during our stay. Only the maintenance person is on site during the day and at times no one can be found for assistance.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very courteous and helpful, and the food at Fat Daddy's is very good. The location is very handy as there is a Market across the street. The French bakery above the market has good coffee and croissants that should be illegal!! (They are so good!)
Cons: We were across the street from the venue but could not find it as the name changed several months ago to Fat Daddy's...a little help from asking the locals sorted us out quickly though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful place, all equipments, close to the beach ! A little oasis!
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything. A lot of the things on the add for this room does not exist or comply. There was no safe, no fridge, no breakfast, the pool was dirty, no office to check in-the guy who was st the restaurant greet us but was not pleasant and didn’t know that we were arriving. The WiFi was only at the restaurant, they only had 3 rooms and the WiFi can’t even reach yo our room. The rooms looks like it was a guest house or workers room before that they decided to make money of off. There was no effort to this place, our sheets had whole in them and stain, same with the towels-it look like yellow stains from being so old and over used. It is over price for what is and location

2.0 Mediocre
Pros: Carlos in Kyoto made our stay more acceptable. The only emplyee who cares
Cons: Advertisement, website and what hotel advertoses is all aie. Room is dirty, outdated. Beach is dirty and not for a swim. Food lucks variety. Only person was nice Carlos in Kyoto. Reservation in all inclusive for a la carte once per three days No drinks. Bar is open limited hours. Flies manifistation over open air food is recepie for disaster... We had no towels and no amedities when we checked in 2 star at best
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We knew from reading all the previous reviews what we were getting in to. We were surprised by the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the grounds and pool. We never had to wait in line for food but at the pool bar there was an occasional five minute wait. The beaches are worth everything else and are some of the best in the world. This was why we came here and we weren't disappointed. Having a hot Salsa band at the pool every afternoon was a bonus!
Cons: The front desk staff was quite nasty and proved that they were unhappy employees every time we interacted with them. The food workers were just super as was everyone else.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I thought it brilliant and the all inclusive approach worked well
Cons: Paying separately for internet didn't really make sense
4.8 Okay

7.0 Good
Pros: The resort was very good and the staff was very friendly. Wide variety of food, cocktails and entertainment from the property. The beach next to the hotel was also nice to swim and see the sunset. Last the hotel is full of animals like sloths or monkeys which makes it feel you are in the wild.
Cons: The internet connection is something you need to pay and is working only on some limited areas and not in the room. Completely unacceptable for a resort. The rooms have no sound proof you can hear people chatting from other floors.
6.0 Good
Pros: The pool and beach were nice. The buffet restaurant was good with a lot of selection. The Japanese ala carte was good. The grounds were pretty.
Cons: Definitely not a 5 star. The entrance is very underwhelming...first sign it was not a 5 star. Our room in building 4 was falling apart. The door handle fell off every time. The patio doors were sun beat and were all milky. The bathroom needs a major reno. That being said it appeared the hotel has renovated some rooms unfortunatly we didn't get one of those. Luckily we got a good deal or we would've been choked. Wifi isn't great.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Nice location, altough you can’t swim at the beach due to rocks. Bed was good. The food and buffet actually was quite good.
Cons: A lot of mold in the bathroom, dirty toilet, balcony door seems also quite damaged. Definitely NOT 5*quality. In general, the room seems poorly cleaned.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The staff were excellent. The number of beach chairs and available shade was great. The location. Ease of booking tours and taxis. The pool was perfect temp.
Cons: No free wifi and the paid wifi was poor. One bar. No wait staff around the pool. No pool bar. Housekeeping was surprisingly poor. They didn’t give us coffee we had to ask often. Towels weren’t replaced sometimes and our dispensers were empty until the last day. There was no food past 10pm. Dinner didn’t start until 7pm. Breakfast didn’t start until 7am but most tours were before 7am. The buffet was very small. Like 8 dishes almost the same every single day. It’s like they were under-staffed and just not set up properly.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views on the coast, the facility was wonderful and had great service. Rooms were large enough for four of us to share for a week.
Cons: The resort is far from just about everything else. It's a 15 minute ride to the nearest town and $7 per person each way for a shuttle. All the adventures are at least a 2 hour bus ride, or more.
7.0 Good
Cons: There were no lounges /umbrellas on the beach
9.1 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean, bed comfortable and the view towards the pool and ocean was amazing. All hotel staff were very attentive and courteous. Starting upon arrival with the bellhop (Rodney), reservation desk, concierge desk (Karol who helped us with the restaurant reservations and printing boarding passes), restaurants staff members (Kimberly, Karen, Kerling, Meriz, Edward, Gerald, Roy Campos and Esteban Campos) of the various resturants (Sabanero Steakhouse, Tamarine, Azul Pool Grill and Mansita) and housekeeping (Leidy who kept our room immaculate and surprised us every day with a different animal made of towels).
Cons: Unfortunately, it is very isolated but it is great if you are looking for peace and quiet. The hour and ten minutes from the airport is a bit tiresome ride and most of the tour destinations are also a few hours away. Other than the location, it's a beautiful and first class hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about the resort. Beautifully laid out. Everything under one roof. Costa Rican people are so friendly and kind. They are so hospitable. They make it so you want to come back again. The weather is so perfect. We loved it and plan on returning next year.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Atmosphere extremely peaceful; service uniformly extremely professional as well as warm and friendly; quality of the food and cooking both exceptional; excellent yoga teacher (Adrianna); uniform high quality of service across the resort; unique and precious peaceful and natural environment.
Cons: Also exceptional fruit juices were available at each of the restaurants, I would have appreciated a fruit juices and bowls bar by the pool or in the lobby. While the resort has an outstanding yoga teacher(Adrianna), there is not a yoga studio in the resort (yoga classes on the grass facing the ocean), which is very nice, but surprising compared to the amenities of other resorts in the area featuring beautiful outdoor yoga studios, and regarding the exceptional setting and luxury of the resort as well as the space availability .
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food, the staff, the bar, the decorations was fantastic. The view from the room spectacular.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: There are so many hidden spots- just amazing. All these different restaurants keep your stay interesting as well. We also booked surfing lessons through “Swiss travel”, whom are located in the hotel, and it was such a great experience too.
Cons: It is quite huge...so it’s easer to just call for pick up and transportation insteas of walking around. Be aware that the beach is not provat and there are no chairs available.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: We stayed at the adult only Royal Beach Club Tower. Loved having the option for the adult only pool and restaurant that only guests in the RBC could have access to. We had our own concierge, business center, special snacks at a private lounge each night. The staff knew our names and treated us like royalty. They were fantastic. Very well run resort. This was a great time of year to go. There were only a few guests on the property. It did rain a little each day at about 2, but it always cleared back up for the sunset. Got some GREAT deals on excursions through Eric just inside the beach entrance. He is a local who has been doing this for 20 years. He is not associated with the hotel. Prices were negotiable. Favorite restaurant was the French (Tuna Tartar!). Exellent presentation and service. Delicious! We will definitely go back.
5.4 Okay
Pros: food
Cons: they dont give me the room ( Jr.premium Suite . one bed room ) what i booked for and one hour at check in process. i will review on TripAdvisor , when i get back to States. royal beach club swimming pool is under renovation and they try to said they are up grading me. i dont buy it. bz i travel all over the world. if hotels keep doing that , Airbnb will take over the world.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It is a beautiful place, very big and with many things to do around. Italian and sea food restaurants are INCREDIBLE. They gave us an upgrade to royal because we were on our honeymoon. Great value for the price. Worth every penny.
Cons: Sometimes people from the service were cleaning the rooms, and it was too noisy. There was a group of 150 tourists, and as nationals we felt a little “excluded” due to all the attention driven to them in terms or service.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was wonderful . The staff very friendly. Beautiful location
Cons: Not much to complain about... the property is beautiful and the staff is very accommodating...
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Location is good as it is directly on the beach.
Cons: From the moment we checked in the staff was rude and unhelpful. After talking to the employees, I learned the hotel has a high staff turnover and most of the staff seemed to be untrained. Checkin attendant was rude and did not offer to set me up with a house account which I later discovered I needed to conveniently make purchases. The concierge service were a joke. Extremely unhelpful and acted like I was inconveniencing them when I ask them to arrange for ground transportation from Tamarindo to another beach. The rooms were old and run down and smelled of mildew. There was construction to the staircase outside of my room which began every morning at 7am. The rooms were not clean and the sink did not have an operating drain. Also, house keeping did not replenish small toiletries or coffee/tea on a daily basis. The beach are is OK, but they have one waitress for the entire garden area so it took over an hour to get and pay for one drink. She was sweet, but also had only been on the job for 2 days and was extremely slow as she was new! The beach are has old plastic lawn chairs. Not updated. No chairs for use on the beach without paying a beach hustler $25+. All-day-along you have drug dealers walking up and down the beach asking you to buy hard drugs. The crowd seemed a bit rough! When you were not being bothered by a drug dealer or Simone hustling Chinese gift wares, you were being asked if you want to buy sex. The nightclub down the street from my ocean front room went until 3am and the music was so loud you could not sleep. Perhaps my expectations are high as I travel a lot, but this hotel was a 2 star charging 4 star Cost Rica pricing and I left feeling ripped off. I will not visit this hotel again and strongly advise downgrading their rating.
7.0 Good
Pros: This is a 300 dollar a night hotel. No water stations to fill water bottles in a very eco conscious country. AC did not work well. Sliding glass door came off rails. This aren’t big things but when you can get these basics at a cheaper hotel why upgrade?
Cons: Wrote these in opposite categories
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Tamarindo Doria Hotel IS Tamarindo- it’s located RIGHT IN THE CENTER of Tamarindo Beach, on the esplanade - why would you stay anywhere else? The resort is beautiful, very clean, very safe with armed security guards, all the staff is genuinely friendly and did I mention the location?
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food and staff were GREAT! Our room was clean and spacious, the safe gave us no problems and the location was amazing. There was construction during our stay but you could barely tell unless you were in the middle of It. I would hands down stay again.
Cons: Nothing to complain about.
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The buffet breakfast was good and the location in the beach is beautiful.
Cons: There was construction going on everyday from 10 am on. We were trying to relax in our room and all we could hear was hammering of concrete right out side our room. When I talked to guest services about it they said sir most of our guests are already awake. Also thee was little to no hot water and house keeping came into our room 3 times without knocking while we were trying to sleep. For a room that costs over 300 usd a night there was so many issues we will never come back here. Customer service did nothing to make it better.
9.0 Excellent
Cons: The scrambled eggs could have been cooked more. Every day they were the same and runny.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The pool furthest from the beach was amazing. Having a swim up bar was awesome. Great restaurants nearby. Location was perfect and by all the dance clubs.
Cons: My room door was not flush to the floor so cockroaches came in quit a bit. Having to cross a busy street all the time was dangerous and annoying, especially when an officer was not there to help us cross. The pool, furthest from the beach did not have food, only the pool by the beach did. They did not have an american tv channel list in our room and asked room service twice to deliver it which never came.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The warm welcome late at night, followed by a change of room to have a better view was a nice way to check in. The location is just amazing, with a private cove. The staff was extremely friendly staff and the rooms very comfortable rooms (albeit a bit older). Importantly for me, the A/C worked perfectly.
Cons: We only ate breakfast at the hotel (included in the room rate). While it was certainly good, the quantities in my (European) view were a bit on the low side. There is no buffet, and anything extra that is not included in the "basic" plate comes as a supplement, which we found a little bit of a let down.
