Laguna del Cocodrilo - Tamarindo
Dark and dingy. Run down property. Plenty of insects in spite of realizing that they are all over. Only plus was the from the French man at the desk. Needs a make over.

Great Little Spot for Value-Driven Travellers
Excellent little corner of the world if you’re looking for a value-driven experience right along the beach. The location is great, at the tail end of the strip if you’re not interested in the loud after-hours antics. It is only about a 4-5 minute walk at most to the main drag of the strip. Do beware of the street noise if you choose a city-view room at this hotel as the cars and traffic can be noisy. The room gets very bright in the morning as well. Otherwise, the room is cozy and cleaning staff are very friendly. The private walkway/sitting area/garden is quaint and tidy with friendly staff and hammocks. Our hot plate didn’t work and it took the staff about a day and we had a brand new one. They are strict with towels so be sure to bring your own beach towel. There is a French bakery/cafe on-site which offers nice pastries and light meals. Do not try to cross the estuary next to the hotel to get to Playa Grande, even at low tide - we saw a medium sized American crocodile upwards in the lagoon/estuary and the staff do warn you to keep away. The main part of the beach is fine as we surfed and swam every day.

Clean, nice decor, easy check-in, crocodiles.
Trish at the front desk was super helpful. Bakery inside the lobby was tasty. Bar was rarely open. Nice hammocks an outdoor shower. Crocks on the estuary beach about 100 yards away. $35/person to take a boat tour up to get close to Crocks and monkeys. Super rare for crocks to go into the ocean. I swam and felt safe with lots of surfers around. Restaurants, shopping and Brewery close by. Bed was big but a little hard and the pillows were stiff. Room was nice and the balcony was great.

Ok for the price.
Beach front, quiet location. As long as you don't expect too much it's a decent accommodation for the budget.

Great value!
Nice hotel with very friendly staff. Plus, its right on the beach and right at the end of the main strip. The wifi, shower, tv, and ac all worked great. The room and bathroom are very spacious.
