“Fantastic Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

My husband and I came here for the end of our honeymoon for rest and sun and we were definitely NOT disappointed. The grounds, the rooms and the staff are wonderful! We were greeted by welcome cocktails and the owner, Hilda, a wonderful Belgian woman. You see her often and she checks occasionally that you are satisfied with your stay. I cannot say enough about the staff. They always have a smile on their faces, they clearly have a great relationship with the owner and are really attentive to the guests. Although you aren't near any other restaurants than the one in the hotel (unless you have a car), you will not be disappointed. The food is stunning (particularly the seafood) and prices aren't bad. The beach is private to the hotel and a couple of private homes so its wonderfully private. The water is warm and the waves are big. We stayed in the Tiki house which was such a treat. It was really clean, huge and gave us a great feeling of privacy, even though its right by the main building. The regular rooms are in a building right on the beach and next to the pool which isn't a bad option either. The grounds of the hotel are huge which include tennis courts, stables, golfing, a lookout point and even a waterfall. It is all well taken care of and stunning. The hotel is a short 25min flight to Tambor and then the hotel will pick you up for $10 and is about 15/20min away from the Tambor 'airport'.

Tango Mar is an isolated haven off the beaten track (you certainly need a 4x4 for some of the roads). The hotel is situated right next to the beach and you can hear the waves and most rooms have a sea view. There is a very relaxed atmosphere and staff were very attentive to all our needs. The hotel foods was good and my son and husband would recommend the Seafood platter. The only downside was that because we didn't have a car we felt a bit trapped as there is very little local interest and the hotel taxi was rather expensive. But if you want to do things there are plenty of tours and activities at an additional cost. But as we had just done a tour of Costa Rica we decided to spend our 4 days here relaxing and were even lucky enough to see a whale and her calf in the sea.

We spend a whole week at the Tango Mar. Hilde and her staff are so gracious and aim to please. What a way to relax. My husband and I just wanted to get away, this was perfect. Our room was right on the ocean, the sun breaking through the early morning clouds was perfect. It is a quiet environment, as it is remote. Exactly what we were looking for. I read 3 books by the pool while we were there.

The pina coladas are the best! We played some golf, took some nature walks and went out for drives periodically during the week.

If you are looking for a place to "just get away" this is the spot for you.

I have two children making wedding plans--perhaps we just all load up and have the weddings there.

I can't thank the staff enough for waiting on us "hand and foot". Wonderful massage and facial...total relaxation.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the rooms right on the oceanfront. They are a good size and have a beautiful...

My wife and I just spent 3 days of our honeymoon here. Beautiful hotel. Every detail was attended to. Great for just hanging around. We never left the property, even though they offer quite a few tours. Some things we did:
Hiking, exploring the beach, collecting seashells.
Boogie boarding (to borrow at the front desk for no cost)
Horseback riding along the beach and through the rainforest. Just my wife and I and a guide. Probably the highlight of our whole trip!
Lots of chilling on the beach in hammocks.
Great drinks at the bar.
Pool table near the bar.

There wasn't a single moment where I said "I wish they had this" or anything like that. They had it all taken care of for us.

Room Tip: Tiki suites are gorgeous and romantic. Thouroughly enjoyed just chilling in the rooms listening watc...

Honeymoon part 2 at the beach. Our trusty GPS decided to take us on the adventurous route to the hotel - no by the ferry but by the unpaved mountain roads. Warning to all - don't do this. Our nerves were going crazy but we finally made it. A final dirt road took us to the property, past the green golf course and horse stables and then to the reception area. No lights on, no clear signage and scaffolding up around the bar area, we weren't sure if were were in the right place. However, within moments drinks were in our hand and a friendly staff member began showing us around. Our private tiki hut was adorable and spacious. In general everything was very clean and updated, though there were definitely a few details that could have been improved (dorm style mini bar, rusty toilet paper holders, peeling drywall tape). The comfort of the room, the generous drinks, tasting food options and inviting servers made up for the flaws. Coming from the Tabacon Spa, this place definitely did not feel as high-end, however, it was perfectly fun and relaxing (and food was much more reasonably priced!). I would recommend Tango Mar to those who might be watching their budget a bit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon at Tango Mar. The view of the coastline from our beachfront room was amazing, the beach on the property was gorgeous, the room was quietly luxurious, clean, and relaxing, and the owner and staff were friendly and very welcoming. We were glad we had rented a car (4WD – the roads are bumpy) for our week-long stay and enjoyed drives to Curu Reserve, Montezuma, Malpais/Santa Teresa, and exploration of the countryside. Lunches by the pool or at the lunch cabana, and dinners under the stars at the on-site restaurant were delightful. Snorkeling at Isla Tortuga was a highlight, as our guide got us there early so we could snorkel before the crowds arrived. We were also pleased to be close enough to Curu to get there early (the best time to see animals). We would highly recommend Tango Mar to anyone looking for a boutique resort in a quiet, beach setting.

This resort is off the beaten path. It is very nice and the rooms are very big with high vaulted wood ceilings. Jacuzzi and king size bed in the room with a nice large shower. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast area was large and over looked the ocean. The beach behind the resort was very nice as well! All around a nice place to stay for a few days!
