I would definitely recommend staying at the Diria. Great selection of food, bars and the beach right on your doorstep.

Great experience! Lots of shaded areas to relax, great selection of restaurants and bars very close. Every staff member we came across was extremely friendly and helpful. It also seemed to be very family friendly, even though we don't have children. We would definitely recommend it.

If you are with your family and want to stay in the city center and on the beach then you can't beat Diria.

I booked Diria because it seemed to be the only hotel on the beach in town that allowed children. And it absolutely exceeded my expectations. Although it is a large complex, it never seemed crowded. It was always easy to find a salon and feel out of the crowd. However, the pool, lounging spots, and restaurants were up there with the best resorts.

What an excellent resort, right on the Pacific Ocean!

We stayed three nights at the end of our trip to Costa Rica and were not disappointed at all. The room we had opened right on the Pacific and we could hear the waves waking up in the morning. The complex has three pools, two for families and one for adults, so no matter how hot it was, they were never crowded. The service in the dining room was exceptional. My family highly recommends this complex.

We loved staying at Tamarindo Diria.

We stayed across the street from the Tropicana area. I loved that it was quieter. The grounds were more typical of Costa Rica with the beautiful foliage and a family of howler monkeys visiting us every day. We spent most of the day walking the beach during low weather.

Tamarindo Diria Resort provided a safe and welcoming environment that made us feel like part of the family.

The service was exceptional, the food was delicious and the beach was stunning. Located in the heart of the tourist area, I highly recommend staying here. I can not wait to return!
