This home is spectacular! All of the finishes are high end, the furniture is made local, very unique and extremely comfortable. The villa is located in a safe gated community. It is an end unit, giving it lots of natural light, the views are breathtaking. You can hear the waves breaking from the balcony. There is a pool in a gorgeous tropical setting. The villa is very close to everything, but feels miles away. There is a very nice grocery store within a mile that has everything you will need for your stay. The town is FULL of amazing restaurants. The concierge Cris will give you fantastic recommendations for excursions and dining or anything you can think of, and then take care off all the reservations. Definitely make reservations and definitely listen to Cris's recommendations, she is amazing!! You could get around town in a golf car, but we rented a car and it definitely gives you more options, and makes things like grocery shopping and going to excursions that don't have transportation a little easier. My family said this was our best vacation ever. You will not regret staying at this gorgeous villa.

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the villa was very convenient. We could walk to the beach and town quite easily. The villa was well furnished and Adriana and her team were very quick to respond to a few maintenance issues we had.
Cristina booked several activities for us, as well as dinner reservations.
One evening we had a tree full of monkeys right outside of our lanai! That was awesome.

Las Mareas Villa 1 was our home for a week in early February. 11 members of my extended family made the trip from a wedding at a resort in Costa Rica to Tamarindo. Cris, our concierge, made the transfer seamless from the resort and to the airport, despite us leaving in 3 separate waves. The unit is within walking distance of everything in town and has the absolute best view of any property in Tamarindo. 10/10!

The accommodations were perfect for our family of 8 adults. The view of the estuary and the ocean was gorgeous. Lots of animal activity in the tree outside our balcony kept us entertained. The pool was very nice. Found a family of monkeys a short walk away (best to find them early morning). A 10 minute walk to the beach and lots of surfing activity all day long! The walk back to the Villa can be challenging when carrying bags of groceries, but taxis are available from the grocery store.

The property is exactly as it appears online. Very nice, very clean and private. The staff is amazing and is always available. Would recommend you don't turn off a/c as suggested. From that point on we left air at 22 C and it was perfect. Adriana and staff were so helpful and friendly. Recommend huge grocery store half a mile before the property. Would stay here again! Views from property are the best!! Pura Vida!!!

The villa was very clean and had a spectacular view of the beach. It was very quiet. It is located on a steep hill so I’d recommend renting a golf cart. The 4 seater model will make it up the hill, but the 6 seater option will not if you have 6 people on it. The staff was responsive and accommodating. The beds were comfortable and overall the villa is nicely furnished. The villa is close to restaurants, groceries, and other amenities. You can walk, but the hill where the villa is located is steep (which makes for beautiful views) and not walkable if you’re not in good shape. We rented a golf cart, which made it very convenient to get everywhere. The concierge assisted us with the golf cart rental and everything else we needed. The pool is clean and very nice. We watched 13-15 howler monkeys for about an hour one afternoon from the pool. We could also hear them throughout the day. I would recommend this villa. It accommodated 6 comfortably. And Luiz and the other staff at the security gate were friendly and fun to interact with.
