Cabinas Cristina Playa Tambor
Ranked #3 of 6 Tambor B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We asked for a kitchen and we got a whole apartment in the quiet village of Tambor. No bars on the windows, in fact, the Restaurant is totally open to the street around the clock. The ocean was "bath water warm" with no rip tides. The internet connection was strong and hotel owners couldn't be nicer. This was definitely one of our favorite stays in all of Costa Rica!

Reviewed December 28, 2012

The hotel owners are so personal and friendly. The balcony area allows one to surf the internet (wireless) with a backdrop of howler monkey sounds. The beach is only about 300 meters away. A supermarket is next door. This town is not like the beach resort areas of Costa Rica. It is more personal - get to know the people and be richly rewarded. The food at the hotel is terrific (we had Casados every night which outshined Casados that we had in other areas).
Stay here, you won't regret it if you are looking for a low key authentic experience. If you're looking for a fancy resort and only being "served", go to playa flamingo.
Also, Curu wildlife reserve is awesome! So is playa blanco (hike the 5km to an amazing beach!)
