    “Decent All Inclusive Resort”

    We arrived on a Thursday which was very quite and relaxing. Then came Friday and a lot of people!! Nevertheless the restaurant was well managed - no lack of food or drinks and wait for seats was not bad. It is a bit far from the town (and shopping) but a taxi is only US$5 one way. It is right on a west facing beach and we had beautiful sunsets. Wifi is not stable - no signal at all in our rooms! The show on our first night became bingo instead. The second show was a variety game show in Spanish so we had no idea what's going on!

    “Ok”

    Room was beautiful and spotless. We had oceanview with the sound of the waves putting us to sleep at night. Bartenders were super friendly and kept us well hydrated ;). There were always plenty of chairs at the pool and beach. Lots of shade from trees but no palapas. House band was fantastic. $5 cab ride into Tamarindo which was great because the food was horrible so we had to go in to town to eat when we got tired of fruit and veggies. Fish at the beach bar was good and soup was usually delicious. We only got one seating at the a la carte because it was closed 2 nights but the night we ate there the food was great. Buffet food made Cuba look like 5* dining. Service in the buffet was terrible until they learned we are tippers (3-4 days). Lots of other places to choose from in the area. Not worth what you pay for all inclusive here. Would likely not return.

    “Week in Costa Rica”

    Good value for the money, especially with all inclusive. Food was average. Facilities were clean. Great beach. Internet needs improvement in rooms and away from common areas. Spa was wonderful. Staff is friendly enough.

    “Great location, service, and food for a fair price”

    Pleasantly surprised with our stay at Occidental Tamarindo. We paid for the all-inclusive which included 3 meals and snacks from the pool bar. The food was good, lots of variety and the fruit was amazing! Our room was spacious and very clean with an amazing balcony & good quality wifi. Pool, beach and entertainment at night (there was amphitheater with live dance) was a nice touch. We also rented a car, which was parked in a safe, guarded lot 24/7. The hotel is exactly 1.5km (1 mile) from the town of Tamarindo. Would 100% recommend this hotel for a couple, or family.

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
