Tamarindo is known for its landscape, especially its coastlines and protected mangrove forests. This landscape is a dreamy backdrop for horseback riding, which is one of the most popular ways to tour Tamarindo. It’s also a good idea to arrange for a canoe tour, so you can get close to the saltwater roots of the mangrove forests. These trees provide a home to rare animals that live between the land and the sea. Further out at sea, Costa Rica’s ocean teems with massive fish. Commission a boat to take you out to sea for a deep sea fishing expedition. And when you’re ready to head back inland, continue your exploration of Costa Rica’s shores with a surfing lesson. Tamarindo has plenty of qualified instructors, and the Hotel Esplendor is just a short stroll from miles of unspoiled beach.
Rooms at Hotel Esplendor come outfitted with balconies, which provide sweeping views of the oceanfront real estate. Open the balcony doors in the morning and let your room fill with the smell of the Pacific Ocean, and the sound of the waves crashing in the distance. Accommodations at Hotel Esplendor have minimal decorations. Muted colors and natural wood details set the tone for a rejuvenating stay. Speaking of which, there is a wellness center in the hotel where you can make an appointment for a massage or a beauty treatment.
Each room comes with a private bathroom, and each bathroom is equipped with a shower and a hairdryer. If you need your clothes washed, take advantage of the hotel’s laundry and dry cleaning service. Weather in Costa Rica is famously clement, but rooms at Hotel Esplendor have heating and air conditioning, just in case.
There is a safety deposit box in your room with an electronic lock. Guest rooms come with a magnetic keycard that you can conveniently store in your wallet. When you’re in your room, you can surf the hotel’s free Wi-Fi, or use the phone. Kick up your feet in front of the 40” LCD TV, and feel free to help yourself to the minibar.
Hotel Esplendor has an outdoor pool, surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. The pool is nearby the bar, and shares the dining area’s incredible view of the beach. At the hotel restaurant, dine on fresh seafood while you look out over the ocean. There’s also a patio where you can grab a drink while you watch the sunset.
