After hanging at the beach, we dropped in for dinner and drinks around the pool. The food was quite good and very pleasing service. The outdoor setting looking at the beach, with tall palms and other tropical plants is wonderful. Though we did not go into the rooms, the setup looked great. Plus, good location in Tambor.

The rooms are large (incl. kitchen) and comfortable with attractive décor. The grounds add to the pleasant experience, I just enjoyed observing the birds and iguanas on site. This hotel fronts the beach and you will often see horses (even cattle) there. My room was the closest to the bar, which is open to the public and can get a...

Unfortunately we only stayed at this hotel for one night! Tambor Tropical is like it own little world on the Nicoya Peninsula. The guest houses are just beautiful, with lots of room, kitchen, etc. The grounds are also beautiful, you feel like you are out in the jungle, and then you can walk right to the ocean. There were horses...

A wonderful, tropical, restful, and relaxing experience! This was our first trip to Costa Rica & we were not quite sure what to expect. Of course, everyone knows someone who has been to the country and has stories, advice, warnings, etc. that they absolutely must share. First recommendation: fly into San Jose & use regional airline SANSA to get you...

We can't wait to go back! We've just returned after a two week stay in the Tambor Bay area, (a week at Tambor Tropical) and this Beach Resort certainly went above and beyond our expectations.

Tambor Tropical lived up to everything I saw on their website. We stayed in an upper cabana and enjoyed our views of the bay. The pool below us was sparkling clean as was the entire resort. We enjoyed dining around the pool. The food was delicious and the Limon Daiquiri was very refreshing after an outing. The staff is so...
