About this property

This luxurious Four-star hotel is located on the Northwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort sets its self apart from all others as the only hotel located on the white sand of the world famous Tamarindo Beach. As Tamarindo's first hotel, we have been the area's premier lodging facility and offer our guests 30 years of hospitality experience. Spread out over 5 acres, Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort's mixture of tradition and contemporary style and architecture is surrounded by exotic and beautifully maintained lush tropical gardens that offer our guests the natural beauty of Costa Rica right outside their doors. The majority of our rooms offer incredible ocean views, providing picturesque sunsets, and access to Tamarindo Beach just a few steps from your hotel room.

Costa Rica is internationally famous for its surf and much of those breaks are right outside our door at the Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort. We cater to the surfer. Whether you are a beginner or have been ripping for years, our goal is to put you into Costa Rica’s famous, beautiful, fun rideable waves. From our door, we can simply guide you to 7 outstanding surf breaks, or if you need help getting started, we can provide you with lessons, a surfboard and a rash guard for that very first ride! To start your Costa Rica surfing vacation adventure, all you’ll need is basic swimming knowledge and a good sense of humor. Our instructors, who stay with you for 1 ½ -2 hours, are all professional, and know water safety. We guarantee you will be standing up and riding your first wave in just one lesson! In addition, since Costa Rica is a world-class surfing area, we know that surf tourists from the world over come to check us out. Therefore, we offer the more advanced surfer guided trips to some of the other surf spots around, or, if desired, lessons for intricate tricks. Of course, if you brought your own surfboard and just want some local knowledge or if you want to rent a board and go off on your own, that’s okay too.

This property is located near Pico Pequeno. A reef break that can get extremely good. Unfortunately there's just one peak so it can't handle a crowd. Shallow and rocky on low tide, works best on mid time and needs a good swell. Great place to sit and watch if it's too crowded.

This property is also located near Tamarindo Beach. Nice beach breaks up and down the sand. Lots of lodging options and plenty of peaks to choose from along here. The wave has potential to get really good, and usually has a decent sized crowd too thanks to it's easy access and convenient location in town. Works best on mid tide.

This property is also located near El Estero. This is the Tamarindo river mouth break. A very accessible wave with a pretty good setup. It works best on a rising medium tide and a NW or combo swell. The wave breaks both waves and the quality really depends upon the sandbars, which are usually good.
