This is lovely, and so tranquil. We have picked a quite weekend, it is just us which is quite nice and as it is low season it is £25 cheaper. Lovely to see some horses on the beach and a local man practising dressage, you don't see that every day. Such a beautiful hotel designed to the purest detail in... More

Very lovely property all done in local woods varnished like a fine boat. Huge maintenance project but kept up quite nicely. Quiet, fabulous natural landscaping and good food at the poolside restaurant where I ate twice a day. The quiet is enhanced by being at the end of a dead end road and not near any busy streets or loud... More

Really down to earth. We travel to several countries a year and I'd have to say I've never experienced something quite like this. Haters gonna hate but the place was perfect. It's well kept and quite. The staff soon became friends and it's like the entire community knows each other. The hotel provided everything. The bar was great, food was... More

We have never stayed somewhere so nice. The rooms are stunning and handcrafted out of local wood. The bar is full of locals. The food was healthy and delicious. And the staff went above and beyond. They even let us use a room to shower after we checked out because we were sandy from the beach and our flight wasn't... More

We only stayed there 3 days/2 nights. The resort is very nice. Food was more than adequate and continental breakfast of toast, yogurt, cereal, fruit, coffee, juice, included. Pros - nice rooms , nice views from 2nd storey, good food small walking trails behind hotel for bird watching. Cons - wooden shutter knobs require attention on all rooms (we had... More

This is a very peaceful and serene boutique hotel. Picture perfect and great food, served poolside. I know the owner of this place from my years in Salem Oregon.... at least I assume he still owns it. His staff at Tambor are very polite and friendly. I recommend the upstairs suites. Ask them to take you up stream on horseback... More

This place is a gem. It is in the middle of what seems like an endless beach. Dark sand but wonderful. Lots of shells and the sunsets are out of this world. It has the usual all inclusive stuff but the staff is all really good and the security is great. If you walk 40 minutes down the beach you... More

This is the place to go! WOW. I near had palpitations when the first day we seen almost 100. This of course was due to the guidance of... More

We were at the Tambor Tropical for a birding trip and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Good food, great staff, and an overwhelming array of bird species. We would definitely stay with Tambor Tropical again!
