I'd give it 10 starts if I could. Tamu is perfect, stylish, impeccable designed and so serene we never wanted to leave. Tip: do pay some more and stay in the 'Suite' room upstairs (only $50 more I believe), it has the most amazing view of pool and ocean and it's perfect. Can't wait to come back!!

Our second visit to the Tamu for our 20th wedding anniversary and once again this boutique hotel really does impress. From arrival to departure all of the hotel staff were amazing. The highest levels of service run throughout every aspect of this hotel. The managers, receptionists, room service and restaurant staff were all amazing and would ensure that stay here...

Loved the Tamu! It's a cute little hotel. The rooms are really spacious and the decor is really simple and tasteful. The service is amazing and all the staff are very attentive. The beach restaurant definitely has the best food in Otres and a good selection of wine and cocktails. During the rainy season, the beach is rather churned up...

After gallivanting all over Vietnam and Cambodia we were looking for a few days of relaxation at the beach before heading home. This place is absolutely perfect. The rooms, the grounds, the views (gorgeous sunsets!), everything. The food! Everything we ate and drank was delicious. But the best thing about Tamu is the staff. Everyone was so nice and so...

After many years of travel I have sadly learnt that some hotels can be looking to take advantage of the customer and situation...this is one of those experiences. We emailed TAMU well in advance mid 2016 and booked 2 x Superior rooms for 2 couples travelling together - 8 months in advance. On arrival one couple was shown a pool...

A beautifully designed hotel - relaxed but very well thought through... The walk in the morning past the small pool, across the sandy little road to the breakfast area on the beach was stunning. Service was good. Breakfast was beautifully laid out - nice touches everywhere. No happy hour which everyone else has for sundowners so do wonder down the...

My (slightly obtuse) thought is that it's a bit like going out on a date with a stunning looker to be disappointed because they are lacking in humour, soul and character. My wife (slightly more sensible) mentioned that it felt like Tamu was run by the kids while the parents were away. The setting is lovely on the beach. The...

We spent a week at Tamu, and for the most part really enjoyed it. It is a lovely place to relax, and I wish I could give it an excellent rating, but a few disappointments which I will detail later make that impossible. First, the good points. The location is excellent. I think the beach in front of Tamu is...

We stayed here for three nights. When we first arrived we were a bit put off ( but then we warmed up to the place). We arrived at 11:30 and were told that we could not check in until 2. I can appreciate that that is the official time but surely you can make some effort to get people in...

Beach, food, cocktails are amazing. The rooms are nice but I've seen better rooms in Angkor Wat. Still, it is very relaxing, friendly....good place to chill and enjoy the beach for a few days.
