Reviewed 8 December 2017 via mobile

We are on the last day of our 9 night stay at Jardin Del Eden. The hotel is a peaceful oasis, close to the town and the restaurants and bars but secluded enough to feel away from the busy town.

The staff at this hotel are fantastic. They are, without exception, friendly and welcoming. The reception staff are great but a special mention has to go to Endy & Moises, the pool bar staff. They are fabulous.

The pool is large enough for the size of the hotel and there is a beach area with a bar if you prefer to be by the ocean.

Breakfast is good, a selection of fruits, meats, cheeses, pastries, some cereal, fresh juices, coffee, and eggs and waffles cooked to order.

We were a little disappointed with the romantic garden room because it did not look like the photos on the hotel website-the jacuzzi is just in a very small walled area, not the garden that we were expecting. The room was large though and the bathroom was really good. I spoke to reception and they switched our room for the second half of our stay to a jacuzzi room with ocean view-it was really lovely and the view was fantastic. I do think that the hotel website photos should show you what you will actually get, to avoid disappointment. I cannot fault how the reception staff responded when I discussed this with them.

The rooms have a safe and a selection of toiletries and amenities such as a fridge and coffee machine.

If you need an early breakfast the staff will box up a breakfast for you.

We booked the mangrove estuary trip through the hotel and it was very good.

The jacuzzi in both of the rooms that we stayed in were very good.

We ate dinner in the restaurant on one evening-the service was great and food was good but it was expensive compared to restaurants in the town.

We saw a troupe of howler monkeys in the trees just outside the hotel reception, which was really lovely. Green iguanas can often be seen around the pool area-a great sight.

There is no gym in the hotel but we were able to use the gym in the sister hotel that is just a short walk away.

The town itself has plenty to offer for bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets.

We have loved our stay in Costa Rica and we loved Jardin Del Eden. If you want a peaceful, adult environment with great service, this hotel is for you.

We stayed here for our 40th wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been more perfect. The hotel was amazing. Quite, clean, and extremely relaxing.From the moment we checked in to the moment we sadly checked out we were treated wonderfully. I had read where someone had said the front receptionist was rude. She could not have been more accommodating. I have to give special mention to our new friends in the restaurant their service was outstanding and their friendly attitudes were very appreciated. We have traveled all over the world and stayed at amazing 5 star hotels. This is our new #1 because of the fantastic service.We will be back next year and can't wait.Thank you Jardin del Eden for letting us relax and recharge in a true paradise!!!!!!!!!!

This was our third (yes 3!) time at the Jardin del Eden - second time this year in fact! Jardin del Eden is more than a hotel, it’s a truly magical place.

We’ve been there three times already and overtime the experience get better and better. Rooms, gardens, food, and service are all spectacular. The Jardin del Eden is more than a hotel, it’s a truly magical place.

We came Tamarindo earlier this year and absolutely loved the room we stayed in last time and really hoping to have the same room this time around. When we arrived, and we didn’t have that room, the staff went out of their way to make arrangements for us to have the room when available (thank you so much, Enrique and Yesenia!).

When we switched rooms (to #37) after the first night, I accidentally left a pair of earrings (the ones I wore on my wedding day) in the previous room (#44)! Within 30 minutes of switching rooms, the housekeeper knocked on our door to return the earrings - thank you so, so much! This is just one of many examples of how honest, genuine, and kind all of the staff is at the Jardin!

The service at the restaurant and bar is first class! It’s better than first class! They are so accommodating, attentive, friendly, and genuine! Never in our lives have we had that kind of service! The staff is amazing - Moises, Endy, Natalia, Mario, Deiner! It’s the #1 reason we keep coming back to the Jardin! We cannot wait to see them again soon!

My husband and I DREAM about the breakfast at the Jardin — it really is that amazing: an assortment of fresh fruits, tropical jams (must try the papaya jam!), gallo pinto, and the best fresh squeezed juice (especially the Tamarindo and Cas juice) we’ve ever had in my life.

When we stay at the Jardin, we feel like we are on our honeymoon - it’s a true paradise! We’ll be back very soon!

Love, Chris and Alex Genovese

Room Tip: Upgrade to the premium room - very private with an amazing view of the ocean
