My wife and I stayed at Tambor Tropical for 7 nights in late November/Early December 2014 and could not have been happier. We've been fortunate to travel quite a bit over the past few years and this trip was by far the most enjoyable trip we've had. We were looking for a small resort to get away and relax while...

My wife & I just returned from our stay at Tambor Tropical. After several very stressful years of schooling & work, we desperately needed a time of quiet and refreshing in a beautiful place. We had found Tambor Tropical on-line a number of years ago, and has always dreamed of going there because it looked so pretty. Honestly, we had...

The resort was great. The room was adequate, and the landscaping was beautiful. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking to having the option of just relaxing, or having access to numerous fun activities, such as fishing, ATV riding, zip lining, water skiing, and scuba diving.

We had a great time. The resort was beautiful, the food very good, the beds amazing, the beach was lovely. There was hardly anyone on the beach. We golfed at Los Delfines near by. It is a beautiful well kept course. The resort was somewhat isolated but everything you might need was there. The scenery and wildlife was incredible. We...

We took a day trip to Tambor and after spending the afternoon on the beach we stopped in for lunch and drinks. We sat at the outdoor tiki bar and the bartender made delicious pina coladas with all fresh ingredients. In fact they were so yummy we bought the ingredients and made them ourselves at our hotel the next day!...

When Bonnie and I travel one of our hopes is to find a hidden jewel, a little slice of heaven that becomes the defining experience for that trip. During a recent fifteen day holiday in Costa Rica, we found heaven at Tambor Tropical. We spent two nights at Tambor Tropical, each night bookending a three day kayaking adventure at the...

I can't even begin to describe how perfect this place was for my girlfriend and I's first few days of our Costa Rican adventure. Words are a disservice to how relaxed this place made us feel and to how incredible an experience it was. This is a corner of the world I will be visiting again.
