JW Marriott Guanacaste is a hacienda-style resort hotel located on Playa Avellanas, within the gated Hacienda Pinilla development.
The hotel is oceanfront, with direct access to five kilometers of beach. The resort’s location is apart from the bustle of Tamarindo, but close enough (15 minutes by car) for dinner or a surf lesson.
The resort has 310 rooms and suites. Guestrooms feature polished native wood, one king or two twin beds, and private balcony or terrace. Some upper category
accommodations add ocean views and space for additional beds.
Each guest room is equipped with air conditioning, security box, minibar, television, coffee makers, bathtub, and hairdryer. Wi-Fi is available throughout the resort.
Among the resort’s amenities are four restaurants, a bar, full-service spa, fitness center, kids’ club, sundeck, hot tub, beach club, and one of the largest free-form swimming pools in Latin America. Bicycle hire can be arranged through the front desk.
The Hacienda Pinilla development contains an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, and an equestrian center.
