“Greatest Pizza on Nicoyan Penninsula”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Mar y Sol Pizza is a must for everybody who is even remotely close to the fishing village of Tambor!
Authentic atmosphere and a great owner named Sam make this place hidden gem in Tambor!
For everybody who is planing on dining at Mar y Sol: Make sure to keep your eyes open as Mar y Sol is off Tambor´s busy main street. Not too obvious to find but once you do you´ll be glad you did!! -Stone oven pizza at it´s best!-

Bottom line:

Best pizza west of Rome!

Keep up the great work, Sam!
We´ll see you next year!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We spent one night here during a driving tour of Guanacaste province, Costa Rica. The room was comfortable, clean, has air conditioning, TV, and the bathroom has the usual amenities and a roomy shower. Cost $40 dbl occupancy.

Tambor is quiet and very beautiful. Many beaches in Costa Rica have rip tides, or large waves that surfers love, but Tambor has a large horseshoe bay and gentle waves. The sand has no rocks, and you can walk out a long distance as the waves gently roll in.

The beach is a short (under 5 minute) walk from the Mar y Sol (you can see the ocean from the open air dining room.

There is a pizza oven (hand made by the owner), and it is wood fired. The pizza is the best I've had in Costa Rica, and quite possibly the best I've had anywhere!

We were there in the off season (August), and it was quiet. The owner does amazing woodwork, and the dining room/bar area shows off his considerable talents. He used local wood from his property to create the pizza bar, and dining room. Simple, affordable, well maintained property.
