There is no better place as a vacation destination in Costa Rica than the Diria Condominiums on this lush property right on the most beautiful , wide, white sandy beach In Guanacaste.
From every place in this property you have an incredible view of the blue/green sea and the lush gardens of this 5 star Getaway. You have the use of all the Hotel faculties and can walk to everything in Tamarindo. It’s time to relax at this incredible retreat where you will capture the famous
Pura Vida lifestyle. From your huge balcony you can gaze out at a 10,000 square foot Pool Lagoon with a swim-up bar that weaves its way through magnificent gardens. Relax on this Mediterranean balcony with your drink of choice with your family and friends. Your Master Bedroom has a King size bed and when you want to rest it’s quiet and serene. You will fall asleep listening to the waves as they come into the beach. We meet every guest as they arrive and check you in to your paradise accommodations. We tell you everything about our bailiwick but were afraid to ask with recommendations on the best restaurants so you thoroughly enjoy your Costarican experience in Tamarindo the Riviera of the country.
This was our third time to Tamarindo and our second time renting a condo managed by Joel. As always, Joel does a great job of mapping out the area for you and where you can find great meals. The location is incredible and the views outstanding. The family splits time between the beach and the pool. My youngest daughter's highlight is to get a mango smoothie at the swim up bar every day. As far as the condo it was nice and a great value for the money. The last time down we stayed in the newer condos and they were definitely nicer but also cost more. To sum it up I would not hesitate to book this condo again and our family will most certainly be back to Tamarindo.
The views are just as described and you can definitely hear the wildlife. Location in center of town and across from the beach is ideal. The manager came to greet us as soon as we called in town. This is an older condo with adequate kitchen amenities. Note there is no dishwasher. There is grocery within an easy 5" walk. The balcony off master bedroom and living room is very relaxing. Just wish they included some pads for the wooden chaises and chairs. The 2 bedrooms share a wall and connecting door. There is a glass brick wall between them so you can see into one room from another. They have placed some privacy curtains in the second bedroom. Bathroom is located off the second bedroom with 2 twins. mattresses are comfortable. The bathroom is adequate but rather dated. Washer/ dryer is a very nice plus. There is a strong musty smell that greeted us when we arrived. The air conditioning is very old so takes about an hour to cool the place. There are also ceiling fans in all rooms and on the large deck. After airing and cooling however, the musty smell did not go away. It was noticeable the entire week and even the bed pillows had a strong musty odor. If you are sensitive to mold, I would look elsewhere.
Our family of four just returned from a week at the El Diria condo & we're ready for another...the condo is perfectly located with fantastic views from the balcony. The howler monkeys made 2 daily visits off the back of the building in the early morning & late afternoons & you can not beat the location nor the amenities of the Hotel Diria. This was our 2nd stay at the Diria & the upper pool & beach set-up is the best in Costa Rica. I'd recommend the full day Volcano Ricon adventure tour & Joel can provide a full listing of restaurants...nearly all were outstanding along with Joel's advice. The condo itself has everything you need & the only thing it could use is updated TV's, although we didn't go to Costa Rica to watch it!!
Our stay at the Diria condo was a wonderful retreat. We appreciated the "gated community" and security guards presence. They were all very friendly and concerned that we were being treated well. The photos accurately reflect the condo interior and views from the balcony. The property was clean and well maintained. Joel was very friendly and offered helpful suggestions and a map to help us get about town. Joel was a phone call away and immediately answered our calls/ messages when we had any questions or concerns. All electronics/appliances were in good working order. There were plenty of dishes, glasses and cutlery for our use. We were delighted with the food storage containers we used to store a variety of fresh fruit in. The beds were comfortable. We were close enough to enjoy the beach (across the road). The pool was beautiful and there were enough lounge chairs for us to use whenever we went to the pool. The wildlife (a variety of birds, the iguanas and the howler monkeys) about the condo were entertaining but didn't come close enough to interact with people. The grounds are manicured to perfection. We spent time relaxing and absorbing the warmth, sunshine and enjoying the beautiful view from the balcony during the day and star gazing after sunset.
