If you want a quiet tropical nature resort this is it ! The pool and grounds are beautiful,you have a large open room with a kitchen on one side, bathroom on other with large step down shower. The bed, kitchen ,and bath is elevated one step, so you can lay in bed and look out to the water.Great deck porches.
They have fresh fruit, coffee,cereal, yogurt and wonderful toast breakfast included. I miss it ! Food prices are reasonable, fish is especially good. There is no night life but they do have a small bar by the pool.There are a few places you can walk to in the evening Costa Coral,a beautiful resturant/ hotel ,but pricey, then a small local soda , had good fish cosada dinner there.There is a small grocery store very close,but no rows of gift stores here.
We didn't have a car,so took the local bus to Curu' and Montezuma [shops here] for $2 each way compared to $25-35 by taxi, but be prepared to wait some are on time or up to 30 min late.We really enjoyed the local bus. The office will help you with tours and transportation.
The beach is dark sand, you can walk about 2 miles easily, [ pass the Barcelo ] with low tide. We took a kayak trip up the river with Bruce , saw monkey, lots of birds and huge spiders on a log, good fun.
Only thing I'd change is to have a king size bed.Some units have air conditioning, we had ceiling fans and a stand fan and were comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay at Tambor Tropical.

Room Tip: Not all units have air conditioning.

We stayed at Tambor Tropical for 5 nights, supposed to be 2 but loved it so much we stayed as long as we could. The rooms were massive, fully equipped and spotless with amazing views of the beach and pool. The pool was perfect temperature 24/7, the staff were very friendly and more than helpful. Overall a great experience of the Costa Rican Pacific Coast. We wish we could come back more often but we are from Australia so very far away. Recommend you staying here!!!!

We had the best time at the Tropical. The staff is great, very friendly and can not do enough for you. The rooms are huge with a full kitchen and large sitting area. You have a private porch to relax and watch the sunrise and set. Our room did not have A/C which was an adjustment. But hearing the surf, howler monkey's and roosters more than made up for it! If you want the 'big box' vacation where you can close your eyes and be at any Marriott, Hyatt or Holiday Inn in the world, the Tropical is not for you. If you want to relax, chat with other guests, hike or bike and feel like you are truly in Costa Rica this is a great place to be. The food was great, the grounds and pool is immaculate. We loved it and will definetly be back!

Room Tip: All rooms faced the ocean. You can pay extra for a room with A/C. Our bed was a little soft for us.

Beautiful grounds, cabins were amazing, food was delicious. Wifi in every room. Very relaxing, a good place to go if you want peace and quiet. The AC worked great and the staff was very friendly. There were Howler monkeys on the property.

A paradise within a paradise. Tambor Tropical is located in a rustic, remote, and densely vegetated tropical setting, complete with wild life indigineous to the area. We were awakened every morning by the sounds of the many different native birds and the soothing sounds of the ocean waves rushing upon the beach. We visitied Tambor Tropical during the rainy season (October) which made our stay more alluring and romantic.

The ambience was relaxing, cozy, and truly tropical. The suite decor and designs were archeticual masterpieces, we were surrounded by the many different woods and hand carvings. The staff and management were friendly, courteous, polite, and patient. The grounds were well kept and maintained daily. The food exceeded our expectations and the house keeping surpassed many five-star hotels in the US. The many tourists attractions were offered at different price ranges. We will return to Costa Rica and book our lodging with Tambor Tropical.
