This hotel is Beautiful, we staid in one of the suits and it was perfect. So private, and romantic the perfect place to spend our honeymoon.
The food was great, pools were clean and the views were breath taking.
LOVED this hotel, was a tad expensive but a great splurge for the two of us in the most beautiful place on earth, would go back if some one was footing the bill.
At $300 a night the food and drinks should be included.

Subpar Tiki Huts
- Tiki Huts are outdated, broken/missing lights; windows don't close so you hear everything/one around you
- Flowers in room had ants (which spread elsewhere)
- Cannot flush toilet paper down the toilet so you must put it in garbage can in bathroom (entire property, not just Tiki Huts)

Lack of Service
- No food service between 3:30pm (pool cafe closes) until 6:30pm (restaurant opens); same between other meals
- With no other customers around, took 15 minutes to receive Coke after ordering
- Needed special permission to order appetizer and dessert at bar (first by restaurant manager, then owner of property)
-Wanted to celebrate dual 15th anniversaries (2 couples) at special oceanside dinner table usually serving honeymoooners but the owner lied to us because they did not want to accommate 4 people there - restaurant manager said the date was available, but he would have to ask the owner if he could serve 4, then the owner said it was reserved that night (which turns out it was not used that night) so we could not eat there. There was no reason they could not accommodate us other than they usually have it for honeymooners, but it's not right to lie outright.

It's not the 4-star as listed at the property.

The most disappointing thing happened when we first got there. We reserved a Tropical Suite, only to find out when we got there that they weren’t letting guests in them at this time. They didn't even initially explain it, they just gave me the Tiki Suite and I didn't find out that they gave me the wrong room until we got to the room and opened the door! So I went back to the front desk and they explained that they weren't renting the Tropical Suites at the moment. They upgraded us to a Tiki Suite, but the Tiki Suites look a lot older and not as well-kept, so we asked for a Standard Room instead. I just wish that the hotel informed me of this before I got there. (For example, they could have sent me an email.) To be honest, one of the main reasons that I booked this hotel was that I really loved the look of the Tropical Suites - I could have paid a lot less for just a room on the beach like we got. One of the other things that I noticed was that the hotel charged me in full before I even showed up, which doesn't seem like something that other hotels do.

Now the pros of the hotel: The Standard Room is literally right on the beach. The hotel is definitely beautiful, very well-kept, the wait staff was amazing, the rooms were spotless, and when we first went in, our whole room was decorated with flowers.

The hotel was just a little too formal for me (even breakfast was served on white linen), but other guests seemed to love it. My husband and I seemed to leave the hotel more than any of the other guests there at the time (to hike, visit nearby preserves, see the other towns, etc). This is definitely the kind of hotel you go to if you simply want to relax in front of the pool all day - if that's your thing, you will definitely enjoy it and you will definitely get waited on a lot.

While it is beautiful, if I ever go back to the Nicoya, I don’t think I’d stay there, but I think I’d look for a place that’s more casual and feels more Costa Rican.

We actually stayed at a villa which was part of the Tango Mar beach resort..............We booked all of our activities through the hotel however......... The least of which included a guided deep sea fishing trip. My husband used his Master Card to pre-book the trip for 4 gentlemen. Due to very inclement weather, the trip was cancelled. However as we came to find out the following month, Tango Mar charged my husband's card a full TWO DAYS before the trip was even due to depart, the ENTIRE cost of the trip. They then refused (siting bank issues/language issues/you name it) to refund our money. I think this is a scam they run all the time -- it is just enough money that the poor, unsuspecting tourist cares about it, but not enough that the credit card companies will go out of their way to remedy. We are still in dispute with Capital One since Tango Mar says the charges are "valid". Anyway, be very wary when doing business with this hotel.................

We stayed in the royal villa with 8 other friends over Chrismas and New Years and had one of the best vacations ever. Recommend the short 25 min. flight as it can take up to 8 hours to drive from San Jose airport. Hotel picks you up from airport and will set up all of your tours and they will pick you up at the resort.

Tango Mar was our last stop on our honeymoon. Just a warning. If you hate to fly, find other means of transportaion to Tambor. We flew from San Jose to Tambor. It was not a pleasent flight.

The hotel picked us up from the landing strip (there is no airport). The hotel is tucked away from everythig. Don't plan on going out to dinner away from the hotel.

The hotel is beautiful. We stayed in the Tropical suites. They are located up on top of a hill. There are stairs to get to the rooms. The hotel and the tiki suites are on the beach. The tropical suites were beautiful. There are three to a building and we had ours to ourself. They seem to spred out the guests. We also had a small pool for the suites. We did have many guests in our room. We had a crab, a few geckos, ants and spiders. None of them bothered us. They were never near the bed, just on the walls and near the toliet and shower.

The pool is great. The beach is wonderful and private. There was hardly anyone on the beach. Even the pool was queit. There is also a nice area with hammocks that is vey quiet. This is not a partying hotel. Most of the guest sat by the pool reading. It is a place to relax.

The restaurant was wonderful. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The prices were great, very reasonable for what you get. The last night we had a private dinner on the beach. It was very romantic.

We were very impressed by the staff. They really cater to the guests. The staff went above and beyond. You truely felt like a welcomed guest. It was very nice.

Spent a week at Tango Mar in November 2006. Our room was on the beach next to the swimming pools. The upkeep of this resort is impressive, the food excellent and the beach private. Two of us came from Vancouver and 2 from England and we all
thorough enjoyed our stay and would love to return. We didn't try the golf course but other spoke favourably of it. The only negative point would be the road to get there - it is truly terrible!
