When Bonnie and I travel one of our hopes is to find a hidden jewel, a little slice of heaven that becomes the defining experience for that trip. During a recent fifteen day holiday in Costa Rica, we found heaven at Tambor Tropical. We spent two nights at Tambor Tropical, each night bookending a three day kayaking adventure at the... More

I can't even begin to describe how perfect this place was for my girlfriend and I's first few days of our Costa Rican adventure. Words are a disservice to how relaxed this place made us feel and to how incredible an experience it was. This is a corner of the world I will be visiting again.

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... More

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... More
