We have visited this place twice and the first time, it was a pleasent experience. Everyone was welcoming and very friendly. Hence us wanting to go back! However, with our second visit (2 years later), we found that the ownership had changed hands. Sadly the new owner knew nothing about running a business and never could answer our questions. The...

it was just what we had hoped for as a beach holiday stay. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious, the view was stunning, the beach was two steps away - we would definately return.If you get the chance then choose Tango Mar!!

Stayed in this hotel for three nights as part of our Costa Rica Tour. Stayed in room 101, I believe its' the Tiki Suites. Rooms are tired and need renovations. there was a his/her sink but one didn't drain well in our room, so instead of fixing it, they tightened the drain so water didn't drain at all! Bathroom couldn't... More

If staying here the Beach Hotel & Tiki Suites are in a much better position (down by the sea) than the Tropical Suites, which are up a steep hill, look a bit like concrete bunkers and are pretty dated - see photos of the stained bath & washbasin. We drove the car down to the pool & restaurant each day... More

We stayed in the rooms that are above the main facilities and it was quite a walk down to the beach and food areas. Our first room had ants and we didn't realize it at first. While we visited the pool, the ants came out and some got into our suitcases. That first room had a sign in the bathroom... More

We stayed at Tango Mar for the last 4 nights of our stay in Costa Rica and the staff and facility is amazing!! There are 3 pools, two overlooking the ocean. The beach front is beautiful and steps from your room. I recommend lounging in the hammocks by the beach. There is great variety in the tours available. We took... More

this hotel features more than u think. its run by a formidable belgium lady which keeps its hands in control over everything. its a very beautifully located hotel on the beach a little outside tambor beach and is perfect for relaxation. the restaurant is mostly french, even 'escargots' they have. the Tiki Suite Beachfront is almost a must there. greatly...

My wife and I just spent 3 days/nights at Tango Mar at Playa Tambor for our honeymoon (Nov 2009) and we cannot believe how wonderfully luxurious and romantic our stay there was. It is amazing how a reasonably priced resort as Tango Mar is could make a regular couple, like us, feel like we were rock stars. True, Tango Mar... More

A tropical paradise, and at a very, very resonable price. Nestled in the Costa Rican jungle abutting the sea lies Tango Mar just west of Tambor on the Nicoya Peninsula. It takes a ferry ride from Punteranas across the Golfo de Nicoya if your coming in from San Jose, and its about a two to four hour drive to get... More

This was much better than I thought it would be. True the location is secluded and not much happens around - but if you need a break away from it all (or a honeymoon) then this is as good as it gets. I was there in July - the rainy season in C.R. but the weather was hot and we... More
