We decided to stop in for lunch after passing Hotel Diria as we walked the beach. The patio was inviting and we assumed the food and beverages would match. Nope. The food was some of the worst we’ve had…ever. Really terrible. The cocktails were no better. The staff hit us up (hard) for a tip at the end. Really, the whole experience was pretty bad. Stay clear. This is one of those establishments that relies on a pretty beach and non recurring customers to survive. In our two weeks in Tamarindo we found PLENTY of better places to eat and drink.

We stayed for four days. Great location, central in Tamarindo and on the beach. Like our other Costa Rica hotels, very low occupancy - only about 25 percent. Relatively inexpensive due to low occupancy. We really liked the breakfast buffet. Rooms are small and need to be updated. We had a broken shower in one of our rooms, and no hot water in the other. We asked at the front desk 3 times over 3 days for fixes to both, including manager escalations. Nothing was fixed and no followup from the staff. I rementioned at checkout after a 530 am cold shower - no empathy or apology and no offer of any compensation. The Diria needs to work harder...

I’ve stayed in Tamarindo many times and finally tried the Diria Beach Resort. I could not have been more disappointed. Booked two rooms in the Tropical Adults only section. Asked for 1 room with 2 queens and 1 room with a king bed. We arrive after a long flight to find out they couldn’t honor our room category because they were understaffed. Whatever that means. Moved us to the beach front rooms, which was supposed to be an upgrade. It’s not! These rooms are really dated, dirty and reminiscent of a motel room. That is exactly why we wanted the new section of the resort. We get to our room and it had two queen beds. Figured they just got our room and the kids room wrong. Nope. No king beds available even though we booked the rooms weeks in advance. Before you book think about how you will react if you get there and your room isn’t available and you can’t even share a king bed with your partner. Additionally, we get to our room after the 3:00 check in and there is an electrician on the balcony rewiring a light fixture. What a joke. Our kids room had the A/C stop working the last day. They send a maintenance guy to repair it... who couldn’t. Made for a pretty hot night. And as other reviewers have said don’t expect the front desk to be sympathetic to your problems. They are not. The only nice thing I can say about this place is it is on the beach but that alone doesn’t make up for their glaring shortfalls. The lobby is really nice but as soon as you get outside the lobby you quickly see how dirty the place is a and how poorly it is maintained. They couldn’t even get the fruit plate in the morning right. Whether it was the pineapple, mango, papaya, etc. they left the rind on. Really you can’t cut that off so your guests don’t have to prepare the prepared food. Seriously. Honestly, look elsewhere. This is the first 1 star review I have ever written.

We had a large group (30+) staying at the Diria for our wedding in May 2021. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They made it so easy to move a large group to and from the airport. The food at all their restaurants was delicious, and the resort is as beautiful as the pictures. They have the best sunset views! The rooms were nice and comfortable, and the resort pools were big and not overcrowded. It is in the middle of town, so everything you need is right at your doorstep. You won't regret visiting the Diria!

The bed was mid-range resort bed and could be improved, but the location and the people made up for it. I don't know where the bad reviews stayed, but it was not a beachfront room. It was impossible to hear road noise. The beachfront rooms were the lowest priced I have ever enjoyed in such a great location. I don't know if some of the reviewers/whiners understand what a pandemic is, but some of the criticism is pure Karen. They had plenty of open bars and service. What type of moron runs into an ocean he has never seen and then blames the hotel for his stitches. We didn't need our beach shoes unless we decided to play on the rocks at low tide. Morons...NEVER RUN INTO AN UNKOWN BODY OF WATER AND EXPECT A SIGN TO SAVE YOU!!! Breakfast was not a continental breakfast. It was a full breakfast. Pancakes, waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, potato cake, local rice dish, breads...orange juice and a daily mystery juice (strawberry, and others). Have you noticed the low reviews offer little constructive criticism? I loved the place and the people. I expect they would have corrected what they could if I had asked. I never asked to improve some of these issues, but I do have some constructive criticism. Here is my constructive criticism: - Update the beds (room 105) - Update the oceanfront bar television viewing for sports...more channels - Beach seating in the shade - the fairly priced ($20) two chairs and one umbrella was just shade for one. Thank you Moses for your hard work to make our vacation great.
