“Off season was a great time to go!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I went for a quick getaway in mid-October and it was such a treat to have only a small number of other vacationers there to share the entire place with. Gorgeous ocean front views just steps from the sandy beach, a wonderful variation of activities to choose from, and one of the most accommodating staff I have ever had the pleasure of being tended by. All around it was a great experience and even close to some other neat towns where you really get a feel for the coastal culture of this majestic peninsula in Costa Rica.

This is truly paradise-palm tree lined white sand beach, just steps away from your room. The food is gourmet and priced reasonably. Hilde, the owner, will welcome you and treat you like family. If you have a special occasion, she will reserve the candlelit dining table on the beach for you! We have stayed numerous times over the years and it only continues to improve. If you're looking for tranquility and truly 'getting away from it all' this is an area NOT swarming with other tourists.The tri-level condo on the beach is our favorite, with deck chairs overlooking the gorgeous ocean view. It just doesn't get any better than this! Check out their virtual tours at www.tangomar.com

Room Tip: The ocean view is stunning during the day, and if you're lucky, you can enjoy watching a lightni...

This was our third time at Tango Mar and have been amazed each and every time – twice for our anniversary, once with friends and we were so confident even brought clients . The quality of their service and beautiful accommodations – IMPRESSIVE AND CONSISTENT. You know you’re on vacation when you return from breakfast or a day out and the rooms are spotless and feels fresh every time. Didn’t think it was possible but quality of the food and drinks just keeps getting better. The well maintained property speaks for itself with million dollar ocean views that can be seen from just about any spot on the property – from the rooms, suites, villas, every restaurant, bar and pool, Jacuzzi (including the private ones in the Tiki Suites and private villas). The backdrop, lush jungle. The oceanfront rooms, Tiki suite or private villas each has its unique charm and very well appointed. The oceanfront rooms are spacious and so close to the water you can feel the pulse of ocean – “Tranquilo”, Tiki Suite with a private tub with an ocean view, a skylight right above the bed – romantic. The newly renovated Robinson Crusoe Villa is perfect for two couples or a small family, with all the amenities of home including a newly furnished and fully equipped kitchen. The 2 bedrooms and kitchen each have entrance to a large balcony facing the beach which is only steps away and feels very private because it’s located at the end, yet only a short walk away from the main restaurant and reception area.
What makes Tango Mar truly unique is the staff who go out of their way to are genuinely interested in making your experience enjoyable, relaxing and effortless. What keeps us coming back is that it is so out of the ordinary yet each time we arrive we file like we are coming home. Bravo Mama Hilde and the Tango Mar family. Thank you all for making each visit very memorable. PURA VIDA

We could not have chosen a better place for our first vacation together!!! We loved it so much, we did not want to come back home! We spent a long time searching for a good place, and we based our decision on all the wonderful reviews here, So thank you all who wrote a review on Tango Mar. And we are just returning the favor now. We have nothing but great things to say!! EVERYONE NEEDS TO VACATION HERE at least once in their life. We will definitely go there again. I really believe everyone needs to get away and escape to this wonderful paradise. We felt so refreshed after coming back home. This is totally a stress reliever and the perfect opportunity to rekindle your relationship with you spouse and spend quality time together. The excursions are absolutely stunning as well and very affordable too.
I compared excursion prices with my siblings who have traveled to other places, and Tango Mars excursions beat them all!! We went snorkeling, swam with whales, saw dolphins, monkeys, beautiful birds, went zip lining, jumped off water falls, horseback riding and saw beautiful sceneries. I'm telling you, YOU HAVE GOT TO GO HERE. Tango Mars will set up all the excursions and necessary travel for you. All you have to do is open a tab and choose what you want to do!!! They make your whole stay easy, warm, enjoyable, and unforgettable!!!
Some things to keep in mind -
1. Wear lots and lots of sun block; apply several time throughout the day. THe last thing you want to do is be sun burned while you're there.
2. Tango Mar will have shuttle available, so just call them in advance to have the shuttle pick you up from the airport- Also if you're staying at other hotels, call to check on that too, that way you won't have to spend unnecessary expenses to taxis.
3. It's easiest to open a tab and just charge everything to your name/room and pay all at once when you check out.
4. Bring a camera! and take lots and lots of photos!
5. You'll be sleeping near the ocean, so you'll be hearing the ocean waves, so if you're a very light sleeper, bring ear plugs.
6. Take advantage of everything that's available for you.
7. You're some what isolated from the city, so plan on enjoying your time on the resort or on excursions! There's bar areas, pool table, swimming pool and more for your leisure.
8. If you go during off-season, you'll feel like you have the resort to yourself.
9. Leave some extra tip for the servers!!! The owner and staff are all so wonderful and kind!!. We'll miss them the most!!! We were especially teary-eyed when we had to say goodbye to Eduardo!!
10. Go Zip lining and all the excursions you can possibly do. Don't forget to Bring swimming trunks when you go zip lining-
11. Understand the type of season you go, we went during the rainy season, so we got isolated showers on one or two days that lasted like an 30 minutes to an hour. It was actually nice rain, so we still enjoyed it!
12. LASTLY, HAVE A BLAST AND MAKE LOTS OF MEMORIES!!!!!!!
THANK YOU TANGO MAR FOR THE WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!

Gorgeous place, well-kept, love the pool table by the bar. The swimming pool is so well thought out with an area for kids and adults and a vista of the ocean. The beach is sooo nice, hammocks, little places to sit with the kids. We stayed in one of the villas - they upgraded us at no cost during the low season from a 2 room rental. It was so big, I lost a kid one day! The beach was right down the steps and across the path, there was a little soaking hot tub at the end of the porch, and again, the view was tremendous. I highly recommend getting up at the crack of dawn. I would give it 5 stars save 2 things - and perhaps nothing they can do about the first - the ants. The first night and day we had them in every room, walls, floors, it was almost gross. BIG ants. I got the feeling that since they upgraded us at checkin, the house was not ready, perhaps it had been closed up for a while. NOt a big problem, The room came with its own spray and I just went crazy with it and the problem was gone within 24 hours. The other thing was the deck - there was just a simple wrap around handle rail and the deck was not enclosed. I have a 2 year old who, well, acts like a 2 year old and we could not spend any time on that beautiful deck since I kept thinking he was going to run to the edge and plummet 15 feet into the gravel driveway. My 10 year old daughter, however, finished almost all her HW in the hammocks swaying in the breeze. Ahhhh. And the owner is gracious and sweet and will stump you by speaking just about any language you can come up with! Don't miss this place!

Wow amazing paradise is what Tango Mar is! Everything from the place to the staff was perfect. We chose a tropical suite and when we got there, we were upgraded to a tiki suite, thank you thank you!! It was a lovely suite with spectacular views. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner was delicious. Beach was breathtakingly beautiful :) We felt like we had the whole island to ourselves. I can't say enough about the friendly staff here (Edcuardo, Roland, Rosa, Andres) and the owner is a wonderful and gracious woman. Always made herself available and came around to socialized with her guests to make sure everything was well, and even offered to take photos of us. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in every way possible. There's plenty to do, we went snorkeling, zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, exploring, or you can just relax by the awesome pools with perfect water temp!! Spotted whales, dolphins, monkeys, birds, lizards, etc. They make everything so easy, just choose what you want to do, and the receptionist will arrange it for you. This is a great escape for anyone needing time to just get away. Will definitely come back to visit! I miss all the wonderful staff already! Pura Vida!!!

Tango Mar is a great place set in the Jungle of Costa Rica, Great restaurant and really nice staff. The rooms are exceptional and the view is to die for. The trip to get to the hotel is an adventure in its self but worth the reward.
