I see mixed reviews for Barcelo Playa Tambor -- and can't quite seem to make a decision about the place. Am considering a vacation with family members including a 9-year old. However, this would be my first experience at an 'all-inclusive' and I am somewhat anxious about the quality of food and wine (is there opportunity to upgrade brands?) Are all rooms air conditioned? Is the casino full service (slots, roulette, etc.)
I'm not crazy about small aircraft - does anything large fly from San Jose? How bad is the land trip to Playa Tambor? Or is it interesting?
If anyone can give me some additional insight it would appreciated.
