The Hotel Capitan Suizo provides an ideal mix of services for a great beach vacation: excellent location, beachfront access, uncompromising service and superb food. This boutique hotel is a member of the Small Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica, and is a favorite among savvy travelers looking for the ultimate beach experience in Costa Rica at reasonable prices.
Capitan Suizo offers tastefully decorated and comfortable accommodations. The large rooms and bungalows are set within a delicately manicured garden with a small pool in the center of the property. Howler monkeys and iguanas are permanent residents of this 35- room hotel, and guests can experience the tranquility of the resort set in one of the most active beach communities in Costa Rica.
Tamarindo Beach is a favorite among locals and foreign visitors, and can get crowded in the high season. However, Capitan Suizo is strategically located in the southern end of the Tamarindo Bay, away from the crowds. White sand beaches, deep blue Pacific Ocean waters and miles of shoreline are masterfully accompanied by quaint restaurants, surf and souvenir shops, and a myriad of on and off shore activities ranging from peaceful relaxation to extreme adventure.
We highly recommend Capitan Suizo for families and couples looking for a unique boutique hotel right on the beach and still close to town. Families with small children are welcome, as the resort offers a limited number of bungalows that can accommodate more than two guests. Even if your trip to Costa Rica includes a stay in Tamarindo but you do not plan to stay at the Capitan Suizo, we strongly encourage you to visit their restaurant for a pleasant and memorable dining experience. Outside guests are welcome for dinner at the restaurant, which offers a delicate blend of Costa Rican and European flavors in a very restful and romantic setting.
