Charming hotel in a central location with a beautiful beach

The Tamarindo Diria saved our anniversary vacation and we are very grateful. We originally booked another place, but upon arrival, it was not what we expected. We found the Diria, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We immediately switched and booked the rest of our stay at the Diria. The trip improved immensely.

Diria is clean and simple, with an excellent location and a great beach. We spent most days relaxing in the beautiful gardens, walking on the beach, and swimming in the ocean and pool. The included breakfast was more than enough, with an omelet bar and various buffet options. For lunch, we preferred some nearby local spots. We used the Diria as a base to explore, with its excellent location in the heart of the town. We are thankful to the staff for making our trip absolutely wonderful. Very grateful!

The Best Yoga in Tamarindo with Vanessa

I have been living in Tamarindo for a while, but I always enjoy visiting the Diria Resort and joining the yoga classes with Vanessa at sunset in the front garden. She is the best in town, based on my experience over the past 2 years. I also just participated in the Global Wellness Weekend, where they had tons of wellness, sports, and health-related activities for visitors and the local community. The hotel has recently started to put a lot more emphasis on wellness and recreation, so if you are looking for a place to stay while in Tamarindo and want to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle, I recommend booking at the Diria Hotel.

5 Stars Hotel

Stayed here a few days. Nice little area. Service at the hotel was more than accommodating. Would stay here again. I did have a beachfront room. I give them 5 stars. They do everything to make your stay here worth it!

Uns gefiel das Diria sehr!

Eine unfassbar schöne Anlage mit großzügiger Frühstücksterasse direkt am Strand mit voller Beschattung durch riesige schöne Bäume.
Der Ort selbst ist dringend ein Besuch wert, wenn Ihr in Costa Rica seid. Allein der buchtenförmige schöne Strand ist über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Abends gibt es immer Livemusik am Strand.
Haben uns im Hotel und Tamarindo pudelwohl gefühlt.

Had an excellent experience in this hotel

The rooms, the service, and the variety of breakfast options were great (included). The lunch and dinner menus were also very good. The pools were well maintained and clean. The ocean view is unbelievable, especially at sunset. This hotel is close to local restaurants, bars, shops, etc. It's good for the entire family or for anyone who wants to be alone and relax.
