8.0 Great
Pros:Rooms were clean. Private nice for couples
Cons:Far from beach. Need to work on the very simple breakfast menu
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Arco Iris had a great feel to it. The pool is very nice. Richard is a super cool guy and is extremely friendly. We had to leave at 4:00 am to catch our flight and Richard gave us some fruit, muffins, and juice. He offered that up without us even asking. We were very happy with the location. You are just far enough from the noise of the main street, but still able to walk to everything. The beach is maybe a 5 minute walk. There is a walking path from the hotel to a road with tons of great restaurants. If you feel like staying in for a nice meal, they lease their dining space to one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo, Seasons by Shlomy. We traveled to 4 different cities in Costa Rica and this hotel was our favorite by far.
Cons:The air conditioner in our room was kind of weak. It worked a little better at night. We weren't around much during the day so it didn't bother us much.
