I remember it like it was yesterday, I was lazing in a hammock overlooking the ocean and enjoying the sunset at The Hotel Villa Amarilla in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. That’s when it dawned on me, I have never had an experience anywhere else in the world that can compare to my time spent here. At that same moment there were a group of travelers relaxing in the common area around the hammocks listening to another guest, a flight attendant and his friend jam out on their guitars and harmonicas.
Over our week long stay we became friends with all the travellers as they came and went from Villa Amarilla. We were lucky to make many amazing connections with people from all over the world and enjoyed listening to enticing stories about travel, culture, and life in general.
We enjoyed dinners out with other guests, many Imperials, and endless laughs and conversations that we won’t soon forget. The Villa Amarilla is much more than just a hotel or a bed and breakfast. The owners TJ and Cinde really understand how to give you your space but also let you know that whenever you need anything they will help you out no questions asked.
It’s not only the owners that make the Villa Amarilla special it’s the guests that come from all around the world to stay at this amazing place. As soon as you check in and get your feet in the sand you will feel at home and like you belong there.
No matter what you came to Tamarindo for, we’re certain you’ll find it here. The Villa Amarilla offers total relaxation – delicious breakfast with fresh coffee, great surf right out back, private or couple massages in a romantic setting, hammocks and great spots for Yoga and sunbathing, a grocery store next door that sells beer and liquor, and the list goes on.
They offer a variety of rooms to suit any group or family needs and many of the rooms offer stunning ocean views from the balcony outside of your door. All of the rooms also offer complimentary WIFI, AC, private washrooms, mini fridges, and comfortable beds.
You will arrive as a traveller, and leave as a friend, dreaming of the day you get to return to this great place. As you gaze up at the stars at night you will know just how lucky you are to stay in this truly special Bed and Breakfast.
