Actually I think it is the mangrove which is gone.

From what I know the hotel is part of a family property which goes all
the way to and includes the trailer park. About 6 years ago one member of
the family sold the hotel part without the permission of the rest of
the family's approval. The family stopped the sale in the courts but not
before a bulldozer had been brought in and scraped the land in front
of the hotel bare. It is illegal to cut mangrove and finally someone made
them stop (a clear line in the mangrove which is North of the hotel).

Next someone put up a chain link fence all the way around the property
and stationed a guard on duty 24 hours a day. It only took 2 years for the
fence in front to be lying flat on the ground from salt air corrosion.

From what I know now (not much) Roberto Hernandez (Tamarindo) owns the property.
