Very Disappointed!!
This was a terrible hotel and certainly not worthy of a 5 star rating. It's beautiful on the outside and so are the grounds. However, the interior is extremely dated and a lot of things were broken or not working up to par. For example, the room fridge wasn't cold, the light switches did not work well, (you had to press very hard to get them to depress) the curtains in the room wouldn't close because the curtain rod was broken, the shower door wouldn't close all the way, the electrical outlets in the bathroom would not take my plugs until my son used his strength to push it in. The Lobby bar closed every night at 11:50 and all of the lights in the Lobby were turned off forcing everyone to go to their rooms. There was no hotel bar we could go to in the evening unless you went to the Disco off property which cost money. Room service would not deliver beer to the room after the Lobby bar closed saying only the 3 that were put in the fridge in the morning were allowed. The hotel shuttle service they offered fir the beach (at an extra cost) was not advertised correctly. We went to use it on a Saturday to go to an excursion and we were told it's only during the weekday and must have a minimum of 6 people. The food was terrible with the exception of the Buffet restaurant. I will never stay at a Riu hotel ever again! So over priced and over rated and not worth the money. It's also not a fun hotel. You go away on vacation with the expectation of staying up past midnight, not being forced to return to your rooms at 11:50 when all the lights go out and there is no bar service.

Amazing place to stay !!
We had an amazing stay at occidental tamarindo. The first day we got into our room which was georgeous and clean and very comfortable bed,we walked out onto our balcony to see about 7 monkeys in the trees directly in front of us. They were a family even a mama with little baby on her back! We continued to see these monkeys everynight around 430 5 pm. The beach on our resort was incredible we were a group of 4, 2 couples and we could go down at anytime and find 4 loungers no problem. Langosta is very good surf ao lots of local surfers can be seen surfing on the beach its fun to watch. There is a nice area for swimming on our beach as well and the waves are very fun! The sunset is beautiful like nothing ive ever seen and its such a cool vibe how everyone gathers at sunset to watch how beautiful it is all together. We walked the beach to tamarindo one day about 30 mins then took the road back about 20 mins. The next time we took a 5 dollar cab into town for surf lessons. The food at the hotel was great they had a good variety and a nic grill station everynight. The ommelette station was great in the morning !snack bar was nice too you could just grab a burger,hotdog,chicken wings,fries,nachos n cheese and more to have on the beach or by the pool. Drinks were good and slushy not watery. The staff were extremely nice overall i dont have anything negative to say about here. The only thing that would make it perfect is if the had a coffee bar in the morning maybe they could open the lobby bar and serve their famous costa rican coffee which we could get off the resort but not here. Overall we would all go back here and loved this place !!!
