Nice rooms, great pool area, but take a big pass on any food offered! Staff was friendly and helpful! We were sick after first meal and never recovered! Only bad result from all the meals in Costa Rica!

I stayed for 7 days and found the experience most satisfying. Mike and Judy and the entire staff were most helpful in all aspects. The food was very different every meals and very originally created and of superb quality. I would recommend this to anyone

Just got back from Tambor, Costa Rica. We were in the area looking at real estate. Lots of breath taking views, beaches and wildlife. We saw lots of monkeys, birds, fish, dolphins and even whales! The area is close to lots of beaches, small towns and future developments for sale. Very convenient to Tambor Airport, Ferries and main roads to... More

I had the opportunity to spend some time at this hotel with my boyfriend who was doing business in Costa Rica. We spent a week at Costa Coral and really enjoyed our time there. Food was great. Staff was awesome. It was really hot that week, however they did everything to make sure we feel as comfortable as it gets.

I had the opportunity to spend some time at this hotel while traveling with some friends who were on a business venture. I loved this place! The hotel is a quaint oasis that has more of a more intimate feel being that there are only like 10 rooms to the whole place. It's located in a very peaceful location of... More
