Our group booked the entire Las Mareas Villas through Stay in Tamarindo () for the week of April 22-29, 2017, and everything about our stay – from beginning to end – was exceptional. We all wish we were still there.

Jen of Stay in Tamarindo helped with the booking arrangements and answered all of our many questions with friendly and helpful information. Stay in Tamarindo even arranged for shuttles from and back to the airport in Liberia (Edwin supervised the shuttles and made everyone feel welcome and comfortable). Upon arrival, the Villas were clean and ready for us, and Adriana of Stay in Tamarindo helped us get settled in and took care of everything we needed.

Las Mareas Villas are located on the hillside overlooking the Pacific Coast in Tamarindo. The views are spectacular! The individual Villas have identical floorplans and are new (constructed in 2013), with all modern appliances (including washer/dryer) and furniture. The beds are very comfortable. Everything is well-maintained. The Villas were cleaned regularly during our stay. The pool at Las Mareas got a lot of use by our group and is in a beautiful setting.

Cristina of Stay in Tamarindo provided Concierge Services for our entire group. She arranged tours, transportation, answered questions, offered advice, and generally made our week better. We visited beaches, bars, Rincón de la Vieja National Park (zip-lining, horseback riding, tubing, hot springs), went scuba diving, and took a Safari Boat Tour with up-close encounters with crocodiles and monkeys. Whatever you want to do or see in Guanacaste can be arranged through Cris.

But our favorite was probably the Sunset Sailing Cruise onboard an 82-foot schooner that Cris booked for us. Wow! Live music (thanks Max!) and truly gourmet food, not to mention snorkeling, dancing on the deck, and an open bar. And, Pangas Beach Club is right at the bottom of the hill for dining and fun all week.

Honestly this is going to be hard, because words can't really express how amazing this place and it's staff were. Everything from day 1 was perfect, the places were clean the staff were super friendly and accommodating especially our two coordinators Adriana Alvarez and Cristina Gonzalez these to girls went over and above for us in every aspect, we never felt like we were bugging them, they were always super friendly and willing to help. The Grounds staff or let's saying cleaning staff for the entire area were amazing and very trust worthy they wouldn't even take out tips when we tried to give it to them we literally had to force them, they kept everything so clean inside and outside. I Highly highly recommend Stay in Tamarindo as a company and Las Mareas as vacation rental I will be going back.

If you are considering staying in Tamarindo, book this rental! The house was amazing, we went with a group of 7 and it was so nice to have the 4 bedrooms and bathrooms so that every couple had their own space! The main level with the kitchen, living and deck was great and we spent a lot of time in this space enjoying the amazing view of the lagoon! The hill into town is steep, but we all walked it numerous times and it is doable. We also rented a few cheap scooters in town which helped us get around as well! Not to forget the countless hours we spent in the beautiful pool area. The staff is beyond amazing! Cris helped us plan all of our outings and adventures most of which were booked last minute and all were top notch. Also every driver that Cris sent for us were friendly, helpful and accomadating! We will remember this trip forever!

We stayed for one week and had an amazing time! The Villas were beautiful, I would have to say the nicest place I have stayed on vacation. Up to date, nicely furnished, fantastic views, great location. Pool was amazing- quiet, beautiful, many hummingbirds. The management company that worked with us during our stay was wonderful. We used their shuttle service to and from the airport- very easy. We also booked an adventure tour with them and enjoyed that very much. All in all an amazing trip and would love to go back!

We loved Villa 1, the views were amazing and the location was quiet and away from the main drag. It is important to note that the 4th bedroom is a separate entrance on the first floor, away from the main living areas. The hill is no joke - but you get used to it and it was a great way to burn off your meal after dinner :) The management team was awesome - friendly, helpful and available.

We had a great stay. There were eight of us going for a Birthday get away. The location was quiet. The pool right out the front was beautiful. The short walk to the beach was very convenient as well. There was a black/ lava rock outdoor shower for the pool, added to the tropical experience! The condo had everything we could need if we wanted to cook/lounge by the pool/ or go to the beach. If you are driving yourself, it can be a little hard to find the first time (as they don't have physical addresses in Costa Rica). You can certainly walk to town, it's about a 15 min walk, but a golf cart would be beneficial as it's a dirt road between the condo and town. We survived without one, cabs are only $5-6 US. I would definitely come back. The whole staff was very accommodating.

The villas are very clean and comfortable. Villa #1 is great because of the extra room. We all enjoyed the veranda views and the pool area. Close to town and very convenient to Pangas Beach Club.

The place is hands down top of the line. At a great price too. We were a group of 7 guys. Great beds, great A/C, Great view... it was all good. The best thing was coming home after a long day and getting in the infinity pool to end the night. The only bad thing is the walk down/up the hill. We walked it every time we went out. We all are in good/great shape and that walk is no joke. Cabs are available though, we just did not use them. We called it the trail of sobriety. Thanks to the whole staff for a great time. Cristina and Danielle really took care of us.
A Beautiful Place for Our Wedding Guests!

The Las Mareas villas were a perfect place to stay for all 39 of our wedding guests! Our ceremony was held down the road from the villas at the Pangas Beach Club and so the accommodations were convenient for our guests. The villa layouts allow for people to spend time together in the kitchen and living room, but also get some private time in separate bedrooms with their own bathroom. The villas are beautifully furnished, very clean, and fully stocked with amenities. The beach and estuary is within walking distance, but you do have to walk about 450m down a semi-steep hill (so walking back up a semi-steep hill back to the villa). Our guests could also hang out by the pool and spend time getting to know each other! The property managers were friendly, fun, easy to communicate with and provided services (transportation, catering, etc) in English. They helped us organize guest check-in/-out since everyone was arriving and leaving at different times. We definitely recommend Las Mareas for a vacation (and wedding weekend) stay!
A beautiful place to call home in Paradise.

The view was absolutely incredible, the villa itself had all of the comforts of home and was beautifully designed, and the pool was a perfect escape for extra hot days. The upstairs terrace off of the master bedroom was a beautiful added bonus for quiet time and yoga with an incredible, sweeping view.

We just had our wedding at Pangas beach club 4/9/2015 which is located across the street from Las Mareas. We rented Las Mareas villas for our family and friends for the week. The villas are well maintained, beautifully decorated and had amazing views. It was perfect for our guests - each bedroom had its own bathroom, providing privacy. The kitchen is fully equipped, refrigerator has filtered water and ice so no need to buy bottled water, just bring a water bottle. Most of our guests enjoyed having early morning coffee on the balcony. The pool area was very tranquil, we enjoyed having a BBQ there. The hill from the front gate to the villas was quite steep, which was easily remedied by hiring a driver/car to transport people up and down the hill, around the town and supermarket which was nearby. Our athletic guests walked up and down the hill without any problems. The housekeeping staff were very nice and non intrusive, always willing to help. Beach chairs, surf boards are in the garage, which was a nice surprise! Washer and dryer located in garage were so helpful. The management staff was very helpful setting up activities, massages and transportation. Many thanks to Jen, Danielle and Lucas. Each and everyone of us had a great time and loved our stay at Las Mareas.
Perfect vacation!
