The lodging was very nice.
I was there for 2 weeks and didn't get to choose whether I wanted afternoons or mornings. They choose that for you. The teacher that I had the first week was really patient, spoke clearly and had clear instructions. However the 2nd week with teacher Alex, I wasn't able to understand him as he spoke quickly and too loud. He was less clear and I was generally anxious in that class. If I choose WAYRA next time, it won't be in Tamarindo.

The school is very organized and serious. There is a system of daily assessment for students and weekly assessment for teachers.
The only downside, the school has mainly Swiss and this information was not well reflected on your site. Being Swiss myself I prefer to mix with other nationalities when I travel and I was unpleasantly surprised because it was part of my search criteria to make my choice of destination and schools on your site. Nevertheless the school was really good so I went over.
