I stayed at Tambor Tropical on my way to santa Teresa and it was amazing. The attentions received cannot be put in words. This place is magical and mesmerizing. The venues, the service, the food, the pool, the fact that is minutes away from other great beaches makes it the perfect place for a beach getaway. Loved it!

My husband and I decided to get married at Hotel Tambor Tropical in Puntarenas, Guanacaste. This was definitely the best choice we could ever take. Everything was more than perfect, and the staff from the hotel made it an even better experience. The place is just amazing, the beauty around it it´s simply unbelievable. One of the things I liked better was the privacy and peace at the hotel. The environment was extremely friendly and perfect to relax. The rooms are extremely comfortable and unique. I could tell the quality and maintenance of the hotel is great throughout the whole year. Regarding our wedding, I am very thankful because the staff made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to have a great vacation.

Where to begin? The grounds, the service, the room, the food or the view? Tambor Tropical is absolutely beautiful. My wife and I ended up here as a result of booking another place that was a dump. Fortunately we were able to make lemonade out of lemons. You can do absolutely nothing or you can be as active as you want to be. There is an on site tour service that will accommodate any adventure you may want to do. Javier, Toba & Captain Elvis were fantastic.
The rooms are nothing like I've ever seen in all my travels; wood from floor to ceiling. I'm guessing they are about 1000 square feet. The rooms all face east so you can lay in bed and watch the sun rise. The view of the water and Dos Largartos is worth the price of admission. (The beach is maybe 100yards away)
Each room has a kitchenette, and there is a store within walking distance. So if you would like to cook your meal in your room, no problema. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots pans, cutlery, dinner ware, etc. If cooking on vacation is too much of a chore, the restaurant has an excellent menu and is reasonably priced. I highly recommend the shrimp nachos!
There are no TV's, by design. At first the thought of no TV panicked me, but I found it was a good thing.
The staff were super friendly and accommodating. Juan-Ricardo, Noyla, Fatima, and the rest of the staff made us feel wel come and comfortable.
All in all Tambor Tropical is paradise.
There is only one thing we didn't like and that was leaving.

Stayed: July 2017

We just got back from 6 nights at Tambor Tropical and had a fantastic experience. It is a beautifully landscaped property. One of our favorite things about the property was the fact that is it home to wild Scarlet Macaws. They are amazing, beautiful birds and it was wonderful to see them daily.

The manager, Juan Carlos, was fantastic and even took us birding on a golf course our first full day there. We saw tons of birds with him and Ruth, our guide. Juan Carlos was always willing to answer any questions that we might have and was quick to provide guidance on places to visit.

The rooms were spacious and were a great home base. They have huge balconies! We also liked hanging out at the poolside bar where we got to meet a lot of different people!

Overalll, highly recommend!

We were only at Tambor Tropical for one night...wish we could've stayed longer! The wood bungalows are so inviting and the interior is perfect! We loved having the pool just outside our door (room 7) and spent most of our time at the pool, or the pool bar..and on the gorgeous beach. The view is AMAZING...so peaceful and we had a wonderful visit. Our bartender was so kind and a wonderful girl. The one complaint we had was that the food was not really spectacular, like you'd expect from such a glorious place. It was just so-so. The facility and staff were very kind and if you're looking for peace and tranquility, you'll definitely find it here. A pair of scarlet macaws kept us entertained as did iguanas and other birds.

Room Tip: Our room was room 7, just in front of the pool and a spectacular view of the ocean!
