8/10 Very Good

The staff was great! Extremely nice and pleasant and it was right next to the beach. The only thing I did not like was how uncomfortable the beds were and there is a restaurant that plays music until 10pm every night right next to the hotel.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed here for one night and were impressed with the reception upon arrival. They helped us park, walked us in and showed us to our room. It had great music playing in the restaurant and was very quiet when it was time for bed. We would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Cocodrillo hotel for our first visit to Tamarindo . The hotel is a fairly typical older hotel with a few quirks - but the location and the views from the upstairs rooms 11 & 12 are just amazing ! The location is great as well as you are close to all of the beach action but just far enough to be quiet when you want . A 2 minute walk to the beach and the owners were super accommodating as well

4/10 Fair

The door to our room was unable to lock. The shower did not have hot water. Extremely loud music was played until midnight. There isn't a nice walk to the beach from the hotel.. There is a huge drop off that looks like a dried up river. That area needs crossed to get to the beach. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The TV in the room was the size of a computer monitor and their reception was poor.
