Margot Millier Section editor

Owned by a French couple, Jardin del Eden is a small haven of peace, located high-up in the sea resort of Tamarindo, which feels like home, but better of course. This hotel very quickly works its charm on you: the restaurant is excellent, the rooms are each decorated to represent a country. However, there are no facilities on the beach.

    Location 5.85 /10

    Jardin del Eden is located in the heart of the small sea resort of Tamarindo. The nearest international airport, Liberia Airport, is 45 mi away, or an hour's drive.For transfers to San José International Airport, allow for a 4 to 5 hour drive, or a 45 minute flight.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The 36 bedrooms are divided into no less than 7 different categories (standard rooms on the ground floor, without a view of the sea, superior rooms with a balcony and a view of the sea, luxury rooms with a balcony and a jacuzzi in the bathroom, apartments, then the suites...). Be aware that some bedrooms are very small or give on to the car park. Five attractive decoration styles stand out: Tunisian, African, Japanese, Indonesian and Mexican. None of the rooms are identical, each one of them is of a different size and each has its own particularity, with its own fittings and decorative objects found in various parts of the world by the owners themselves. Available equipment: satellite TV (95 channels), individual air-conditioning and a fan, a mini-bar, a telephone and a radio alarm clock. Most of the bathrooms have a shower.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1990, Jardin del Eden was bought back by the present French owner in 2002. This quaint little place is comprised of five little buildings. Outside, two small swimming pools on two levels with a jacuzzi, beautiful vegetation and a little lawn share the space. In one corner of the estate, the gate with an electronic code allows you to freely leave the hotel and go straight to the beach. The open-air restaurant topped with a palm-thatched roof turns into a bar after service.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Although the breakfast buffet is disappointing, the other meals served à la carte are bound to tease your taste buds. The only restaurant in the hotel offers a varied choice of fusion cuisine, Mediterranean in particular. Next to the small swimming pool, in a most charming and convivial setting, you are in one of, if not the best restaurant of the resort. Refined, nicely prepared and wonderfully seasoned, such is the fish cooked by the Peruvian chef. We recommend: the mahi-mahi in a tarragon sauce or the tuna in sesame and balsamic sauce.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Jardin del Eden has no private area reserved on the public beach of Tamarindo. A small narrow path, closed by a gate, leads to the resort's central street. Another 492 ft and you are there! The large and superb beach, with little uneven ground, allows each and every one of the guests to make themselves comfortable. Renting a deckchair on the fine and golden sand will cost you around £7 for the day. It is an ideal spot for anyone who wants to try surfing.Don't forget to check which way you need to go to get back to the hotel.

    To know

    Real estate promoters continue to build more and more in Tamarindo. It is unfortunately likely that this quaint little hotel will be progressively surrounded by high, tasteless buildings.
