“Hidden Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

This amazing small boutique hotel is off the beaten track - but worth the trip to get there. Traveled in the long driveway to find a coconut drink waiting for us along with the owner who welcomed us (she is lovely!)...much appreciated. Our contemporary bedroom was amazing - ocean front, extremely spacious with a balcony - large tiled bathroom and lovely large tiled shower as well. Air conditioner was great and kept the outside ocean wave noise to a minimum. Breakfasts were amazing - buffet-style with anything you might want as well as local options - including made to order omelets. Really - all meals were good, which is important because you would have to travel a bit to find other restaurants. There is a nice walk to a look out point and the beach is desolate and all yours - lovely. Watch ocean swims - riptide is strong. But with three lovely pools - why would you care!

This was the penultimate stop on our honeymoon and it didn't disappoint! It's out of the way for a reason, right on the beach with a dip in the pacific on tap. Room was comfortable and looked over the sea. The hotel staff were great, especially in organising local tours. The guided trip to Curu Wildlife Reserve and snorkelling stop at Tortuga Island followed by a private beach lunch and a tour of local mangroves was absolutely superb! The hotel restaurant is also excellent and we can thoroughly recommend a massage!

This was the third place we stayed at during our trip to CR. I was suspect that the place would be nickel and diming me, as many of the 4 star resorts in the States seem to do. This was the most expensive place that we stayed at during the trip, but it was well worth it. At no time did I feel that they were trying to bill me for unexpected or unnecessary expenses. Though the restaurant was expensive, it was quite tasty and the setting was beautiful. The breakfast that came with the room was outstanding. The service was excellent and the pool side bar was attended by a very nice man named Jesus (I learned the J is pronounced as an H). The bar was reasonably priced and ever so nice to sit around after a day of adventure, visiting with other guests. The grounds are very nice, the pool was very much appreciated. We were very happy with the room, the view was of the ocean as promised. The climate control was very effective, the bedding was extremely comfortable. I love this section of CR. The highlight of our trip was renting kayaks at Curu, I highly recommend this!! Tango Mar, thanks very much for a great stay!!

Room Tip: I believe all are ocean views in the main building. This is where we stayed and loved it!

My family goes to Costa Rica regularly and always stay at Tango Mar. The staff is great and the cleanliness of the entire place is excellent. The beach is unbeatable. I definitely recommend Tango Mar; It's worth every penny!

We've relaxed here one night (two days) before heading back to San José. Nice but sometimes dangerous beach, wonderful pools, great food and awesome views. The staff was not only very friendly but also very helpful.
