We loved the grounds and room! Everything was clean and neat. The grounds were beautifully landscaped. The staff were friendly and the free cocktail on the beach at sunset (see attached photo) was wonderful. The restaurant needs attention, though. Even though the breakfast buffet was excellent, service was slow and when we asked for a breakfast box to take on tours, we were given a ham and cheese sandwich and a banana. In the evening, we were the first to arrive for dinner and were asked to sit by the pool in the sun. We had to insist on sitting in the restaurant patio area in the shade. One other recommendation would be to provide free shuttle service to town. Just a few improvements would make this an ideal boutique hotel!

Nice facilities, quiet, not the best beach access

Private and quiet, not a huge resort full of people partying. The service was a bit mixed but overall nice people. Maid service was very good. Restaurant was over-priced and slow, but the food was good. Rooms are in pairs nestled in the trees. It was fun to see monkeys at the resort, although they can be a bit loud at night. It's a short walk through the trees to the beach. The shoreline closest to the hotel is rocky and not good for swimming. You have to walk a least a kilometer in either direction to get to an area suitable for swimming. Nice breakfast with fresh fruit, tropical juices, and made-to-order omelets. Drinks were pretty weak. Excursions were good but pretty expensive. You can go for cheaper by stopping at the taxi stand in town. The town is not far. You can walk or take a taxi for $5.

What's to Love

Surfers will rejoice to find a basecamp that doesn't skimp on luxury features like tropical wood ceilings and impeccable service. Best of all, some of Costa Rica's best waves are just a two minute walk away.

What We'd Change

There's not much nightlife on the property, and the only available bar closes at midnight. But with Tamarindo nearby, night owls can find all the action they want at nearby watering holes.

Why You Should Go

Cala Luna's luxurious hospitality has earned itself a 2013 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice pick for 'Top 25 Hotels - Central America' and 'Top 25 Hotels - Costa Rica.' If that's not a testament to its amazing service, what is?

Hotel Description

Cala Luna Boutique Hotel & Villas: Anything, Anytime, Anywhere
If you've plastered pictures of the ocean on every surface of your home, it's time to grab a big floppy hat, pack your surf board and get on a plane. Cala Luna Boutique Hotel & Villas is the place to find a luxury, private bungalow that will buffer you from the real world and set your clock back to "Right on." And this year, it gets to flaunt its 2013 TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice award for 'Top 25 Hotels - Central America' and 'Top 25 Hotels - Costa Rica.'

Begin your morning with a free full breakfast, followed by a short, 2-minute stroll down a tropical path, surrounded by lush foliage, to a semi-private beach perfect for splashing in the surf, riding a barrel on your surfboard or basking in the glow of a spectacular Costa Rican sunset. Don't forget to take advantage of free beach towels and loungers. For freshwater lovers there are private pools attached to each bungalow in addition to a sizable main pool. Relaxation options include a shaded cabana or a comfy sunbed accompanied by an assortment of light snacks and island-style cocktails.

When snacks just won't cut it, make way for delicious gourmet fusion at on-site Cala Moresca. A classic American-style breakfast helps you rise and shine each morning and a colorful, organic lunch will leave you feeling refreshed. The Italian fused seafood mixed with the organic and biodynamic wine list makes an evening meal more than just dinner. After those hunger pains have been tamed, poolside Lounge La Caleta offers a romantic, low-lit ambience for cocktails and light menu items every evening 'til the stroke of midnight.

Rise early the next day for surf academy or a thrilling ATV tour. After your action-packed morning, indulge in a couples massage with your honey. The resort offers an array of full body treatments under a canopy of shady trees right on the beach, or in the privacy of your own room. Round out the day with a romantic sunset cruise in a catamaran before heading back to your luxurious guest room to wind down. If you're not ready to forget about work, the resort offers complimentary Wi-Fi in each room to help you keep in touch.
