Nice Resort
We totally enjoyed our 1 week stay at this resort. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent at every restaurant. They are generous with their serving sizes, so you will not go hungry. They are also open to changes to the dishes on their menus. The beef tenderloin, steak and Salmon at the Seaside Restaurant were delicious. Be prepared to climb some hills if you want to walk around the resort, but there are always shuttle vans available to take you where you want to go. We both have injured knees so we had to use the vans a little more than we would have liked, but that is certainly not a fault with the resort. We spent extra money for the preferred package, but we are not so sure it was worth the money. You can book the cabanas a day ahead, make reservations at the Japanese restaurant, have breakfast and lunch at the Seaside Restaurant, and get premium liquor in the lounge but in hindsight we paid to much for what we received. If we had one complaint it would be about the pools. The main pool which is beautiful does not have enough chairs. Even if you arrive there at 7 am, all chairs are taken. We spent much of our time at the smaller quiet pool so we could sit near a pool. With the exception of 1 day, they do not offer drink service to your chair in the quiet pool. Even this pool is lacking in chairs if you get there after 9 am. Also the bar at this quiet pool has much shorter serving hours. They close at 3pm. The chairs and some of the umbrellas at this resort could use some TLC. The wifi is great all over the resort. Not once did we have dropped service. The entertainment staff do a great job, are extremely friendly and helpful.

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 !!!
