“Beautiful and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I just spent a quiet and relaxing time at Tango Mar. First of all I have to mention the staff - Dorial, Royland, Junior, Rosabel, Dunia, Hannia, Jessy, Javier, Eduardo, the chefs and housekeeping. Forgive me if I have forgotten anyone. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I had a massage which was good, I used the fitness room, and the pool area is awesome. I went on the snorkelling trip with another couple who were staying at the resort and it was a great day. We saw whales and dolfphins. I saw a turtle nesting on the beach. Jessy took me on a hike to Montezuma and I saw many birds that I would not have seen on my own. He is an avid bird lover! I appreciate the time he took with me. I will definitely return.

A fantastic and memorable time during our stay at Tango Mar! We spent 8 days in Costa Rica, starting from San Jose, to Arenal and La Fortuna, to Tamarindo, and finally to Tango Mar. We hadn't planned to stay here originally but saw an appealing advertisement in one of our maps and decided to change our plans to stay at this "little piece of heaven." As we had been traveling around and adventuring quite a bit, it was nice to relax and unwind here. We were so glad we did! It is off the beaten path. We had rented our own car while in Costa Rica, and it was primarily a wide dirt road to travel here from Tamarindo, which made our adventure all the more fun enjoying a pretty countryside drive through the Costa Rican hills. The resort from the main road doesn't look like much, but once you enter the gate and drive back to the check-in area, you find yourself looking at a gorgeous view right on a private beach. We enjoyed an ocean-front room with a balcony. Also, we went on a little hike around the property, seeing pretty butterflies and finally to an area in some trees where we were greeted (and completely startled) by about 10 howler monkies. We loved it! The staff and the owner, in particular, were marvelous and made our stay personal and memorable with special service. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was marvelous, along with the swim-up bar, and restaurant dining nearby. This property is quiet and serene, and was not busy when we were there. All in all, a perfect quick stay to a great trip in Costa Rica!

Pros: Great specious beach-front rooms with strong surf sounds. Three pools, two restaurants, shade by pool and on beach, hammocks, gardens. The staff is friendly and helpful and can take care of all guests' needs.

Cons: breakfast was a disappointment, pastries were dry and stale. Dinner is over-priced. A/C engine in beach front rooms is located in balcony which makes it impossible to enjoy the balcony (noise, heat) as well as noisy inside the room.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Tango Mar. It was part of a package vacation for our first visit to Costa Rica. Had we known how beautiful Tango Mar is and how attentive the staff is we would have chosen to spend our entire six nights there. We were pleased with everything from the lazy hammocks to the horseback ride. Hilda is personable and spends time chatting with the guests without being intrusive. Our room had an amazing balcony overlooking the ocean. The resort is modern and tastefully decorated. All of the pools were beautiful and the food at both restaurants was very good. I didn't try the spa but I saw a couple of the rooms which were beautiful. Tango Mar is immaculate and located in a beautiful area. We took a drive to Montezuma, a quaint little Bohemian village and picked up some locally made crafts.

Room Tip: We liked our ocean front room

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...
