The location, grounds, pool, wildlife are amazing. The room was not good at all. I loved the macaws and iguanas that were plentiful. The pool, staff, and food were good. The room needed a total renovation and the flooring and bathroom had mold. I only had hot water half my

Hotel's Favourite
We have been going to Barcelo Tambor off and on for 12 years. The good food, beautiful beach, friendly staff and reasonable price make this our favorite beach stop in Costa Rica. The trip form San Jose by car and ferry is very scenic and enjoyable. The staff recognizes us from

Beach and ocean great, buffet food good but repetitive,not great selection, fresh fruit best ever eaten! Japanese and Rancho steakhouse quite good. Resort very remote! Don’t expect to walk anywhere, but beach, only small town close, nothing there . No shopping, market etc.

We found the resort to be well maintained and in a beautiful setting . Anyone booking this resort must realize that it is occupied by 98% Ticos ( Costa Rician citizens)....this means that unless you speak Spanish you will feel isolated. It is heart warming to see the extended

No, ones you arrive to the Tambor port you have to hire a taxi that are very expensive or like the rest of us took a local bus that way super cheap but takes a bit to get to the hotel entrance. Hotel Barcelo Tambor is a disgrace and I won't recommend it.

Hi! The night life is great! But if you want a good drink you have to pay big bucks for it. They have a lot of great live shows and discotheque until 2am.

The night show is fun, very interactive with the guests,they have a schedule per night, so you and your family will know what to expect, also, there's like a kids show for the little ones.. it's good.. Sports, They do play at the beach, like volleyball and stuff and have a minigol .. Wich I enjoy as crazy.. Wishing you the best, have fun in Costa Rica

Que hay de cierto con los. cocodrilos, puedes bañarte en el Mar
No había cocodrilos en el océano en Tambor, estaban en la laguna de agua dulce debajo de las villas Laguna Vista cerca de Corcovado.

Like weather anywhere, it varies from day to day, but in CR the weather is very consistent. June is rainy season, but the rain is warm, don't let it stop you from doing things. Usually a little rain every day but you will also get lots of sun. Shuttles from LIR and SJO are available. You can contact the hotel directly - or - look/search on facebook. Lots of businesses in CR do not have websites, but they have facebook pages. CURU parque nacional is very close, it makes a great day trip. There is an admission charge. Isla Tortuga is an awesome trip, it can include snorkelling. Lots of choices to get there. The beach is maybe 4 km so lots of exploring. And of course there are the grounds themselves, pool, bars, food, etc. The rooms have A/C. If you get close to Paquera, be sure to stop at Restarante Liz Seafood Macho (long name - fantastic seafood)
