There’s is no way I can possibly explain how wonderful this resort and staff truly are, but I will do my best!
My fiancée used to live in Tambor and was very familiar with this gorgeous resort. From the moment I saw pictures of the grounds, I knew we were booking our wedding here. Once the planning started Juan Carlos was more than delightful and attentive to any need and question we had. We had 30+ people traveling from The US to accommodate and every single one of the we’re in awe when we arrived. Juan Carlos and staff welcomed everyone with open arms and no hesitation in helping us with what ever we needed. Including the night time security that helped a friend that couldn’t remember where his room was the first night! Every single morning we woke up to the beauty of macaws flying and waves crashing outside of our rooms. We enjoyed continental breakfast with amazing fruit and fresh squeezed OJ, with a delicious breakfast menu we could order from. Every day as we left for excursions and sight seeing the grounds were being maintained, you could tell it was an art to the workers. Everyday the staff asked how our trip was and made sure to ask if we needed anything. Those that ordered dinner said it was excellent and nothing like the food they were used to. Christina and Fatima were the most amazing and helpful! They even helped us learn words in Spanish we didn’t know! They kept up
With 30+ people and bar tabs for 5 days, I can’t thank them enough for the amazing hospitality!
The wedding day completely blew me away. When I woke up I could See the staff setting up the altar, and the tears started! It was more beautiful than I could ever imagined my wedding looking! The day went on and it got even prettier than the last time I had looked. They had fresh flowers that were ordered from all over town, along with bamboo my mom saw them cut the day before. I’m not kidding when I say I never could have imagined this, being for me! They truly put their hearts into making this perfect!! The staff had all of the chairs setup on the beach for our guests and they were just as amazed! After the ceremony they had their Signature CocoLoco for all of my wedding guests, served in real coconuts! Once food was served, all I heard about was the ceviche! Then the real meal came! Which was even better! Chicken, potatoes and vegetables, all cooked to perfection. We danced and drank and had the best of time! Even got some of the staff on the dance floor!!
Needless to say, this will be something I nor my guests, will EVER forget! Like told Juan Carlos 100 times, this was more than I could have ever dreamed of. We will be back every time we visit Tambor!!

We discovered this place two years when we stopped in twice for lunch. When deciding to go back to the Nicoya Peninsula, I knew this would be the place we would stay and we were NOT disappointed. We didn't want to leave. The rooms are spacious, clean and have fabulous views and amazing sunrises. The staff and the GM, Juan Carlos, were all very friendly and welcoming. If you don't leave this place totally relaxed, it's you own fault. We were able to book some activities right from the hotel grounds which was very convenient even though we had a car. The restaurant is very good. The fish burgers are amazing! Even if you don't stay at the hotel...go for lunch or dinner for the food, great service and beautiful views. I highly recommend this hotel & restaurant!

I recently spent a week at this resort. If you want a very nice relaxing place, look no further. The rooms are very nice and the grounds are gorgeous. The beach is very nice and the waves were great. We walked over 50 miles during our six days. Tambor is a great little town. Looking forward to returning one day.

I’ve traveled to a number of tropical destinations in my time, and find this resort constitutes the best of what I’ve experienced to date. Set mere yards from a wonderful beach, Tambor Tropical does all the things you’d hope for from such a place in a very low key and professional manner.

Our food and room were top notch and we’ll conceived. The layout of the resort is nicely done. The staff all very helpful.

If I ever come back to this area I’ll definitely consider staying here again.

Best place to stay in Tambor!

Had an amazing stay at Tambor Tropical! Beach is literally a stones throw away, perfectly located in between 2 national Parks Cabo Blanco and Curu each well worth a visit.

Food was delicious. Room was incredible, sea views, absolutely huge suite with balcony, kitchen, sofas could almost get lost in it!

Definitely opt for the first floor rooms with Balcony if you have a choice
