JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort and Spa
Hacienda Pinilla, Playa Avellanas, Tamarindo, CC Costa Rica

Location

Located in Pinilla, this beachfront resort is next door to a golf course, 0.7 miles from Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course, and within 9 miles of Avellana Beach and Callejones Beach. Blanca Beach is 8 miles away.

Why Stay Here

  • Oceanfront
  • 5 Restaurants
  • Outdoor Jacuzzi 

Resort Details

From the alfresco plazas to the squat stone walls to the red roof tiles, this resort on the brink of the 4,500-acre Hacienda Pinilla emanates the magic of an old hacienda by the sea. Designed by Costa Rica`s most famous architect, Ronald Zurcher, this 310-unit colonial compound was planned to defend history and honor nature. Windswept palms dot the grounds, tropical dry forest encloses the property, and the open-air design invites a stimulating ocean breeze.

Accommodation Details

The guestrooms measure 592 square feet, and all come with a view the pool, garden or ocean. Down comforters top the beds, marble shines in the bathrooms, and 37-inch flat-screen TV`s are mounted on the tranquilizing, cream-colored walls. The sizable balconies are excellent for curling up with a good book or simply marveling at the resort`s extensive back yard.

Restaurants, Lounges & Bars

The resort offers five restaurants and two bars: Azul Grill beach front restaurant, Tamarine featuring Asian fusion cuisine, Sabanero a genuine Guanacastecan Steakhouse and Nau Lounge & Bar offering sushi and cocktails.

For the Family

The hotel is next to an 18-hole golf course with a coastal layout. Off-site activities such as zip lining, white water rafting and tours to nearby parks and volcanoes are arranged on site. The property features an infinity pool, Kids Club, biking and jogging trails. The spa is ranked as one of the top five spas in Latin America by Spa Magazine.

I stayed here while using my Marriott employee rate for the first time ever. Needless to say, from start to finish I was blown away by the level of dedication to hospitality, as well as attention to detail to keep the entire resort immaculate and dream-like. As stated, the service from the staff was really what made the experience so beautiful, and likewise keep the pura vida spirit alive. Great job, JW Guanacaste!

This is an amazing hotel, a little difficult to get to, but worth it to be away from the craziness of Tamarindo. Rooms are top notch: beautiful tiled floors, large soaking tub, separate shower, comfy bed, and great balcony with table/chairs/lounger with a gorgeous view. The staff is great, many learned our names and visited our table just to say hello. There are 7 different restaurants with a variety of food, plus a rooftop bar for watching the sunset. Consierge, fitness room, and tour represent... Read more

This resort is great. The staff was extremely nice, friendly and helpful. The grounds were well maintained and well laid out. Room service was fast, friendly and very reasonably priced. I would recommend this resort if you are planning a trip in the Tamarindo area.

Outstanding on all aspects. Food was true cuisine and affordable. Great service at every corner was outstanding. The room, bed, internet, pool, and overall beach location was fabulous. We especially loved the room service. Why? it was always fast (< 30 minutes) and hot and carefully prepared. The sunsets every night were beyond memorable especially when standing in the infinity pool.

My sister and I spent a week here at the Guanacaste resort and spa. It was a beautiful property, right on the beach. The hotel was clean and beautiful, and the people were so helpful and friendly. Particularly William and Darwing, who were our servers many times during our stay. Both were very polite and professional, taking time to ensure our experience was the best. I cannot express how happy we were with every aspect of our stay, but these two employees really stand out in their exceptional s... Read more

This resort is physically beautiful. The colonial decor is charming, our King bed room was huge and the bathroom was gorgeous. The breakfast and dinner buffets were the largest we have ever seen in any hotel we've visited anywhere in the world. The number of bread offerings alone was stunning. The swimming pools go on and one. The beach is nice but not special. We especially loved strolling by the pools at night with the soft blue lighting (environmentally sound, so as to not confused the Leathe... Read more

My wife and I spent a week at the JW Marriott the first week of December for a joint birthday, kid free trip. We travel extensively and standards have gotten high and our expectations were exceeded! The service really stood out - from the individual sit down at check in, to anytime we called the front desk, to the overall staff throughout the resort... very polite and attentive. We upgraded to an ocean front room (not to be confused with an ocean view room) and it was well worth the upgrade... Read more

We were here for our honeymoon, and it was fantastic! The whole resort is beautiful. There are flowers and trees galore with a relaxing pool setting, and the beach connects the resort to the Pacific Ocean. The sunset views are fabulous! We were most impressed with how friendly and accommodating the staff is (as were all Costa Ricans that we came across). There is no concern at all about safety. There are many excellent restaurants on the property, with delicious food and reasonable prices. They ... Read more

This Mariott hotel could be anywhere- I never got the sense that I was in Costa Rica. The buildings and the rooms were spacious but sprawling . The pool, staff and food were just so so. It felt more like a business conference center than a resort- we couldn't get out of there fast enough!
