My husband and I got married in Tamarindo a few weeks ago. We booked Ocho Artisan Bungalows (and the two houses) for our guests, so we could have the entire property to ourselves. It was absolutely amazing having a small slice of Tamarindo exclusively to ourselves! The property is gorgeous and clean, and our guests had a great time.

With some pre-planning, we also had a welcome dinner on beach in front of Ocho's property. Shon, Mika and staff did an absolutely amazing job creating the most beautiful space for us. They had recently put in a beachfront bar and added perfect furniture for some seating. They also had an array of lighting that just made the space that much more special after sunset.

The entire space is gorgeous and we really enjoyed our stay at Ocho. Thank you again!

We loved our stay! We love unique places with great atmosphere and people. The Ocho Artisan Bungalows has that and more! Our bungalow faced the pool and beach so everything very convenient. Sun for me and shade for hubby. The artistic materials and grounds has that beach surfer vibe. We recognize it may not be for everyone. Shower wasn’t always hot but refreshing temp after day at the beach in the sun. The noise from nearby bar on Friday night and another night from a government wedding were not our idea of a relaxing night at the beach. Loved the layout, private porch, and pool seating areas. The full kitchen would be great for a longer stay. Only 7 units so small and personalized.

The unique accommodations, proximity to the beach, the wildlife that walks around the facility in the evenings- all positives that made this the Perfect way for us to begin our Costa Rican vacation! This was my husband's favorite accommodations of all that we stayed in during our vacation. We loved walking down the sandy beach to eat meals close by! We loved hearing howler monkeys one of the early mornings when we were there!

The location is fantastic! Located right on Tamarindo beach within easy walking of town where there are lots of restaurants and shopping. The bungalows are beautifully decorated and really well equipped. We didn't use the kitchenette much but it would be wonderful if you had kids along. Service provided by Pia and others was excellent and the rooms are kept clean with plenty of necessities included. The pool was very refreshing though not very large - the lot where the property is located is sort of long and narrow, so there wasn't a lot of space for a larger pool. The landscaping and grounds are very pretty and we saw iguanas at the pool and howler monkeys in the adjacent lot. The mood here and throughout Tamarindo was much more of a youthful "beach" atmosphere than other places we visited including Monteverde and Manuel Antonio.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ocho Artisan Bungalows for four nights in early February and can't wait to go back! From the second we arrived, we felt fully taken care of by the staff (Ilse, Pia, Chu, and Sean the owner). They are always available when you need them but completely respect your privacy. Sometimes they would come around the pool area with light snacks and smoothies, which was a nice touch! Pia also arranged excursions for us and was always whipping up delicious drinks.

The property is truly magical. My favorite was to walk around at night when the pathways are lit up and soft colored lights shine throughout the property. There is a gorgeous pool surrounded by cabanas with a view of the ocean (just a short walk ahead). Everything you could want in Tamarindo is just a short walk down the road.

The bungalows themselves are AMAZING. The attention to detail is just breathtaking. The A/C worked great, indoor/outdoor shower was fantastic, and I loved the outdoor private patio. We woke up to the howler monkeys each morning and saw cute little iguanas and geicos.

Thanks to everyone (especially Pia!) for making our stay so memorable. I would not hesitate to recommend Ocho Artisan Bungalows to others or to stay here again.

xo,
Megan and Randall
