This resort may be a victim of its own success, having grown just a bit too big, and service and upkeep can suffer at times. Many of the beds are too hard, the Wi-Fi is spotty, and some of the rooms need updating. Still, the Diria has arguably the most convenient location of any hotel in Tamarindo, a short walk to all of the town’s restaurants and shops in one direction, a hop to the beach in the other. The landscaping is still lovely, with tall sea grape trees and coconut palms providing shade, and the thatched roofs over the restaurant and bar areas giving the resort a tropical feel. The original hotel rooms are beachfront, just steps away from the waves, and the third-floor sunset rooms offer up sensational ocean and sunset views from their private balconies.
