Best spot in Tamarindo!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was an absolute pleasure to stay at! Close to everything, shopping, restaurants, and the beach! We stayed in the studios infront of the pool, which was more than refreshing to jump in daily. Air conditioning works amazingly which is a must have for Costa Rica:) Jean-François Lavoie & Isabelle Mérette are the hosts of this place and they are such lovely people. You can have the choice of breakfast made daily for you, or in the suites there is kitchenettes. I really had one of the best vacation experiences of my life. Whether you are a couple, or friends on a trip, I would highly recommend to stay here. Very clean, very peaceful, pure serenity!! Ill forever be going back to Villa Imani:)

Brand new, clean, perfect location

  • 4 of 5
My girlfriend and I were a bit apprehensive at first given the lack of reviews (0), the inability of the owners to provide an exact address and the inability to pay through VRBO but we took a leap of faith and we are glad that we did. The lack of reviews was because we were the first guests to stay there as the property was recently converted and gutted from a single family home and in CR, a lot of places don't have addresses or street names- Isabelle's directions were more then adequate for our shuttle driver. The property itself was exactly as pictured, clean, new and beautiful. The pool was perfect after a long day on the beach surfing and the 3 minute walk to the ocean and to town made it easy to head out for dinner, coffee or drinks at sunset. The breakfast every morning consisted of a fresh fruit smoothie, eggs and toast and was delicious. The property features a security guard from 6 pm to 6 am which was nice but we felt safe our entire time in Tamarindo. The only thing that took us by surprise and was not clearly communicated was that the owners and their infant daughter live on the property. While they are lovely people, it took us by surprise. Based on what we saw of other properties, I believe this to be one of the best options available in a perfect location for Tamarindo at a fair price.
