Stay at Ibis Tamarindo
I will preface this review by saying that we were not sold on going to Costa Rica at first. We were traveling with 3 kids 8,9, and 11 and weren't certain if it was the best place to go with 3 young kids. We went through over 1 thousand reviews and finally decided on this condo in Tamarindo over a resort in the Panilla region. We made the right decision and had a fantastic time. I wanted to write this review trying to provide information the information that we looked for going through reviews for a family vacation. We just returned from one week at Costa Rica. We stayed in Ibis 9. We had a wonderful experience from the start. Melissa arranged airport transfer from Liberia airport. Catalina was waiting for us and was a gracious host. We stopped by a very nice supremacado on the way to the condo for groceries. A small version of a nice US grocery store with everything you need. We met our concierge Rafa once we arrived at Ibis. He took care of anything we needed instantaneously. As good a concierge as anyone you would meet at a nice hotel in the states. We got help with our luggage. The condo was on the top floor. Very spacious, clean, and nice furniture. Fixtures, and appliances all extremely nice. We quickly went out to the beach through the Langosta Beach Club. There is a great pool there and lounge chairs. Free cabanas that you can reserve through the concierge who was Giro while we were there. The beach club has food and great drinks. It is a bit pricey. Similar to US resort prices. But a great set up and worth the cost. Also plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. Beautiful sand and great waves. You can rent boogy boards or get surf lessons right in front of the beach club. I would highly encourage you to rent a golf cart. We rented one for the week through pure vida luxury rentals. It was ready for us when we got there. It makes it very easy to travel all through town and visit the different beaches. We used it every day to go out and get breakfast or go to dinner. If there is one restaurant you should try it is Pangas right on the beach with best food in town. We set up 3 tours through the concierge and were very happy. We got private guides for each trip and were guided through each activity without any wait or downtime. Very similar to guided tours through us parks. Victor and Sebastian (and Irbin tour driver) were our guides. They are truly expert guides and made our experience exeptional. I highly recommend this property and company.
We loved our stay in Costa Rica at Ibis 9. Wonderful accommodations and staff. The location was perfect, close to the town and the Longosta Beach Club was amazing. We will definitely be back.
We enjoyed our time in Ibis 9. The layout and pictures of the place were exactly as described. Rafe and Stefano were helpful and knowledgable of the area and made the excursions workout seamless. The walk into town is not far but the golf cart was a must for us to get around in for dinners and groceries. We had 4 kids and 2 adults. Costa Rica is beautiful and the beach was amazing.
Fantastic penthouse. Great amenities. Family friendly. Close to beach and beach club, walking distance to main drag through town. Had a great time. Would stay here again.
Nice Villa. Great location to town and beach.
The property is comfortable and convenient. We walked all over Tamarindo. Our guides, Guildo and Sebastian were amazing. Please ask for them. You will not be disappointed.
We spent our spring break week at Ibis #9. There were 4 adults and 4 children in our group. We absolutely loved it! It was spacious, comfortable and convenient. Everyone was so helpful! We arranged for airport transportation through Stefano (about an hour drive from Liberia) and the driver let us stop for groceries on our way to the condo. Once we arrived, Camacho carried all our luggage up to the condo. Everything we needed was available in the condo. I did bring a small bottle of laundry detergent, which allowed us to bring fewer clothes, wash as we needed, and return home with clean clothes! Bring shampoo, conditioner and sunscreen (very expensive locally). The unit is exactly as pictured in the photos. The main room and kitchen are plenty big and it never felt crowded, even with 8 of us. The 'cold-pool' out on the deck was very refreshing and fun for the kids. We spent a lot of evening time relaxing on the front deck, which had plenty of deck furniture. The wifi worked great, which made my 16-year old happy. Any time we wanted to plan an excursion, or needed directions, the front desk staff was incredibly helpful. They planned everything for us and would tell us exactly where to go. We did the sunset cruise (amazing), learned to surf, toured the estuary and did some fishing. The front desk lined up all of our transportation. The Beach Club across the street was perfect. It's an easy walk to the pool or the beach. The restaurant on site served great lunch and the staff there was also very friendly and helpful. My kids were stung by jellyfish, which is apparently pretty rare (and wasn't very painful), but the Beach Club staff immediately tended to them, bringing vinegar to sooth the sting. The beach out front of the Beach Club is beautiful, quiet and great for swimming in the ocean. The condo is the perfect distance from town. It's an easy walk, and there are great restaurants and shops in Tamarindo. We spent many evenings walking to town to find a good dinner restaurant, and then walking back to the quiet of our condo. We slept great in the condo, with the exception of one morning when the holler monkeys out back were quite active. It was fun to hear them though. There were plenty of extra blankets and towels available in the unit. I would highly recommend this rental and look forward to our next visit to Costa Rica!
