Hotel Capitan Suizo is a charming and truly romantic beachfront boutique hotel that is a perfect choice for a honeymoon. It is also family-friendly, though. You cannot beat the location, as it is situated on the far south end of Playa Tamarindo (which is typically way less crowded) and is a perfect sunset and swimming beach. You can easily walk into town, but are just far enough away from the center of town that you avoid all the liveliness and noise. The rooms and bungalows are incredibly cozy. There is a restaurant, bar, pool, and spa on the premises, too.
