My husband and I stayed at the Resort Barcelo at Tambor Beach in Costa Rica for our honey moon, the place is beautiful, very green and lush. it has a cool nature park built in with various types of animals. The people are a little on the slow side, like Southern hospitality slow and all are very young.
The problem began with Breakfast, they served rice and beans, face plastic cheese cubes, uncooked omelets and fried eggs and whatever was left over from the night or even days before. The snack bar...I saw the gloveless young teenager pick up raw "hamburger Meat" then place it on the grill, wipe his sweaty forehead, then grab the hamburger buns, uncooked cheese, and whatever resembled ham to make me a sandwich. Never once did he put on gloves, wash his hands or think he was doing anything wrong. I yelled at him in Spanish, and in English he quickly ran washed his hands, put on a hairnet and gloves...
then there is the "steak" house el rancho. The seafood was Okay, the "steak" seemed to me what people describe as human meat, I am still disgusted by the thought of it. The Sushi restaurant was the only semi edible area but very little seafood to rice ratio. The buffet where the breakfast is served had the same food, and recycled food every morning noon and night.
I have stayed in resorts since I was 20 years old, I am 30 now. I even stayed at the Barcelo in Bavaro beach in Dominican republic which was a dream, this place at Tambor in Costa Rica was absolutely the most disgusting resort, food wise and Staff cleanliness, that I have ever experienced the health department would shut this place down.
