I'm Olivier from Belgium, I ve been a tennis instructor for 20 years, i love all kind of sports, architecture and all the good things that life can bring
A friend and I stayed at 15 Love BnB and had a FANTASTIC visit! Everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating. Even with a few changes to our reservation, we were greeted warmly with a complimentary (and delicious!) smoothie and enjoyed a wonderful complimentary breakfast each morning, served by a fantastic staff! Thanks for a great visit to Tamarindo!!
We had a very nice stay at 15 Love. Quiet location that is conveniently located close to the beach and restaurants/shops. The owner and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The made to order breakfasts with fruit juice smoothies were a wonderful way to start every day. Not quite as nice as the photos might indicate, but whatever it lacked in polish it certainly made up for in atmosphere and friendliness.
Oliver's bed-and-breakfast has a fantastic European design with 24 hour Tennis courts on the property. Guests are welcomed by a free fresh fruit smoothie and a friendly and accommodating staff. When you want a break from the beaming sun and surfing, you can enjoy the small pool on the property.
Free breakfast daily (the food is great and there are several options) and free beach towels are some of the added perks. The staff washed all our dishes and left an ashtray for the smoker. They tidied up the place each day while we were out at the beach. My favorite feature was the European style shower and fresh towels everyday. The suite's floors were clean enough to walk barefoot. The staff was very flexible with scheduling. They gave us a local map upon arrival and took the time to recommend some good restaurants and bars. The AC was amazing!
- the price was a little high for the accommodations
- the doors to the suite and grounds were difficult to open (a huge nuisance when you're intoxicated)
- the owner wasn't very inviting (you had to approach him to get any conversation.. although he was friendly once you engaged him)
- the staff didn't know much about transportation around town
- the location was off the beaten path a bit (sketchy walk at night up dirt road), but very close to the beach
- the mattress wasn't tempur-pedic as advertised (but it was comfy)
We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Oliver at 15 Love. The photos don't lie, you'll be greeted with a smoothie and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Super close to the beach and to the center of town. Highly recommended!!!
Such an incredible place and incredible hosts. The rooms were extremely nice and clean, the free breakfast was great, the pool was great, and it was nice to be able and pop on and play a game of tennis as well. The location is super convenient, one block walk to the beach and is right at the beginning of all the bars and restaurants, but it is extremely quiet at night time since you are a block off the main street. It is also super secure, I left my door open most of the time while I was gone, never did that anywhere else I stayed on my trip. I will stay here again for sure.
Nice room within 5 minutes walking distance to the beach. Fabulous breakfast! We enjoyed our stay here - it's a great spot to explore Tamarindo!
We had a great stay at 15 Love. The smoothies were amazing, location was ideal. Very peaceful and just steps from the main strip in Tamarindo and the beach. The staff was so nice and helpful. Can't wait to go back!
15 Love is a quaint B&B located just 5 minutes from the center of town. The best part of our stay was the breakfast. So yummy! The cook/bartender/concierge was named Carla. She was so helpful with suggesting places to eat and where to go. The owners names were Oliver and Emily. They were so nice and hospitable.
We weren't in our room much, but when we were, there were bugs - but that's just Costa Rica. You're in the middle of the forest/jungle and there are bugs everywhere. You WILL get bugs bites, so I suggest you bring repellent and anti-itch cream.
We had a great, no-fuss stay! Room was exactly as described on AirBnB. Super clean and nice smelling. Location was convenient. Homemade breakfasts were amazing. Both Oliver and his wife provided some good recommendations about the area, what-to-do, restaurants and also helped me plan my husband's birthday. We would strongly recommend staying here!
Very pleasant stay. Great suite on the 2nd floor that was very clean; great location close to the beach and restaurants. Oliver was knowledgeable and helpful regarding activities and helping to set them up. Would definitely recommend you stay there if you're in the Tamarindo area!
