Perfect location with excellent service

This hotel is perfectly located in the middle of everything. We literally walked everywhere the entire time and got a chance to try many different restaurants, coffee shops and more. The hotel has plenty of beds to lay down close to the beach and the bar is close by. Service staff was excellent, from the servers to the housekeeping staff. Would 100% recommend it.

I would say the hotel provides very good customer service!

I slept very comfortably in the room and found everything very clean. I liked it a lot. Highly recommended; I loved the yoga class, I learned a lot indeed. Vanessa is a very good teacher. I will be back soon for my vacation. It was a very good experience in Costa Rica. It's in my plans to return with my family and enjoy the well-being that the hotel offers. Thank you very much for your attention and professionalism.

Best place to stay at Tama beach. Right on the water so you feel the breeze.
Everyone makes you feel at home. Easy access to all kinds of restaurants. Lots of beach activities. Plus assistance with all of the local attractions: Ziplines, river safari's, wild animals.

We loved Hotel Diriá. 

This was our first trip back to the area in over 20 years, and Hotel Diriá was a beautiful place back then too. The outdoor spaces are so well-maintained, and the staff were friendly and helpful. In Costa Rica, Hotel Diriá is very lovely. It is a dry tropical area with many wonderful creatures... we saw raccoons, monkeys, giant lizards, geckos, beetles, and more! Also, if you stay at Hotel Diriá, be prepared—it is in the center of town, it is also a great experience with so much to see and do! We would definitely return!

Tamarindo Diria is deliriously fun!

Tamarindo Diria offers everything for everyone. It's the best place to stay in Tamarindo. It has a quiet pool and a beachfront pool, beachfront access, buffet breakfast, and a tour desk. This was the 2nd time staying at the Diria and we will be going back. Enjoy the monkeys and quiet pool on the backside. Newly renovated rooms, as well as oceanfront rooms, offer variety.
