True vacation
This is the most warm, friendly, service oriented place we have stayed. The grounds are beautiful, the food authentic and so good. They arranged transportation, top notch excursions, and small local details that enhanced the ease and quality of our restful vacation.

Expect loud music
It’s all about expectations with Ocho. When we booked originally it was promoted as family friendly and it’s now becoming adults only. We had the 2 bedroom villa. This is right next to the bar which has very loud music, so loud the place shakes and it’s very intrusive. This does only go on until 8:30pm, which may be fine for some people. And if our kids were older and didn’t have jet lag it may have been fine. The property needs some tlc, things were looking quite worn (big crack in sink for example). And the room amenities weren’t always replenished (like the complimentary mini bar). There was also an awful smell, which seemed to be coming from the swamp by the property, which detracted from our stay. The staff really make the place, very friendly and make you feel very welcome.

So this is a beautiful bungalow on a party beach. The property is amazing, the room is perfect. It's only a question of if you want a party atmosphere. We were in the bungalow next to the DJ/restaurant. While they were very conscious to shut down at a reasonable time, the entire beach community parties ALL NIGHT. At 5 am you could still here the dance music all up and down the beach. I see this listing now shows "adults only", it didn't when I booked the place for my family. The night market with a food truck area was a short walk from Ocho and the churros were amazing! Welcome drinks were yummy. The showers were really nice as were all the staff. I just didn't realize how loud Tamarindo as a whole was. The beach in front of the bungalow is swimmable, but there were lots of birds and fish in the water. Locals casting lines into the waves, and a crocodile in the water near the natural river in front of the bungalow. We were cool with all of that, but wish the traffic hadn't been so oppressive so that we could get to other beaches. We were very happy to be returning to La Fortuna, but will never forget this amazing room and property.

My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of staying here for our honeymoon. Everything was magical. Before we even arrived Cata was beyond attentive, even helping us secure a ride from San Jose to a different hotel we stayed in for a night before checking in to Ocho. Who does that? Customer service was above and beyond. Our room was made up special with a lovely sign wishing us a happy honeymoon and marriage. As a vegan I was very pleased with all the options I had to eat and my husband enjoyed the fresh seafood. The cocktails were delicious. Order all the guaro for me! The restaurant staff was incredible and Miguel was the sweetest man, we miss him already! We were surrounded by wildlife, occasionally awoken by coati or howlers in the night, we shared the pool with colorful birds and the neighborhood crocodile popped out for a hello. Our room was stunning with gorgeous wood, the comfiest bed and a rain shower. A kitchenette came stocked with snacks. The town of Tamarindo is a beautiful place full of beautiful people, delicious food, beaches and activities, wildlife and fun. If you want a beach front stay at a gorgeous hotel this is it. Thank you so much to the staff of Ocho for a trip we will never forget. Audrey & Alex
