Best hotel in a week long hotel hopping trip
This was the second night of a seven nights hotel hopping trip in Costa Rica, February 2023. Perfect settings, clean rooms, nice friendly service, beautiful beach in front of the restaurant, above average food when compared to expensive resorts. I regret for spending one night here.

This is a beautiful property in the heart of the Tamarindo area. Right on the beach with various pool options, the beautifully landscaped resort offered the perfect hub for an activity filled Costa Rican vacation. We would love to come back. We left the Diria to spend some time in the Nicoya peninsula and we wished we had stayed at the Diria. As beautiful as the nicoya península is, Tanarindo and the Diria had more to offer. Our room was on the across the street area and really I think it’s not worth it to spend the premium to be right on the beach. We had beautiful views from our balcony. The one thing i wish our room had was a towel warmer or some way to get wet suits, towels, or other articles dry. It rained every afternoon and being wet and wearing wet stuff is part of being in the tropics. But it would just be nice to be able to get things dry. Loved the Diria.

The staff at this hotel are excellent. Any problem we had with our room was resolved within an hour and the staff were extremely responsive over Whatsapp. We stayed in the "glamping suite." Two issues we had was the hot tub continuously had problems and the hot water in the bathroom was unreliable, so I would go in to this unit with the expectation that it will not be perfect. However, the staff were always quick in fixing these issues. I would recommend this hotel.

This was a very unique, relaxing, experience with a very friendly staff! I would definitely recommend this spot for a destination getaway with lots of amenities and services to offer. Each guest has their own unique bungalow. It can get noisier towards the street/if you have guests but the staff was very helpful. Lastly, just be prepared for bugs and a jungle-vibe since you're in the middle of the woods but directly on the beach!! Such a cool experience overall
