9.2 Excellent
Pros: Bridget and Leon were great hosts and spent a lot of time helping us find things to do in the area and giving us a history of the place. The food was good and we enjoyed the horse ride. It was a great place to relax after a long day exploring the beaches, forests and snorkeling! It is off the beaten path, which was one of our favorite things about it. I wish we would have stayed longer!
Cons: The only issue we had was that one of the mattresses in our room was very firm, and I sleep on a firm mattress! Also, I would book the bungalow which is separate from the other 2 rooms to have a little more privacy and quiet.
6.7 Good

Good value for money!

Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and multilingual staff. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a ferry terminal shuttle.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Everything tipp topp and comfortable
Cons: The choice for the mini-fridge was poor
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The beach the hotel was on was beautiful and the pool area was lovely.
Cons: I generally like to find the positive in the places we stay and I usually do that easily. I'm not one for posting negative reviews or complaining but we had high hopes for Tango Mar and were horribly disappointed. Firstly, we had to move rooms 3 times! The first room had a broken door that wouldn't lock and the fly screen was broken so we couldn't leave the door open overnight, which was a real problem on the first night when the electricity went off, with no generator thus no air con. So we had to boil in a closed up room all night. The electricity only came on the next afternoon. Also the balcony of the first room was totally flooded, so we couldn't go out there. We were also kept up all night by cockroaches, ants and a few spiders in the room. The next day we asked to move rooms and the second room was a little better until the night time when the cockroaches came out again after hours of trying to stalk and capture cockroaches to release outdoors, we asked to move again. They moved us to another room and we were so tired by then that we slept a few hours there but decided we couldn't bare another night there so left 3 nights early. We understand that this is the tropics and we were right next to jungle and there are going to be bugs but we have stayed in 3 other resorts in Costa Rica on this trip, as we've been moving around, and none of them have had such terrible cockroach problems. On one of the mornings my husband took my son to the bathrooms near the dining area and they found a crab that had been squashed by one of the doors and just left there, who knows for how long. There was squashed crab all over the door frame and the floor. As well as this, the staff did not seem at all happy and that unhappiness was felt throughout the resort. It felt almost like they resented having guests there. When we told them we were leaving early and explained why they didn't even apologize for any of it.

7.1 Good
Pros: Food and drinks were good. The beach is kind of rough, not for kids. The shows and staff are nice.
Cons: Hotel allows people to leave stuff on the tables to "reserve" a spot for the shows, Even if the do not attend to all of them, so tables remains unoccupied for hours while some people are standing. Same happens with the beach and pool chairs. It is really unfair.

Castillo Resort - Tambor - Building

7.6 Good (36 reviews)
Overview Reviews

Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free valet parking is available onsite.
4.2 Okay
Pros: It looks like an old “castle”. So you get the feeling of some history.
Cons: It is actually more a residential house. We got the feeling that we were given a room in a “garage “ that they made a “bungalow “. It smelled moldy as if it is not much in use... the bulbs in the bathroom didn’t work, another lamp had an a lot of dust and a spider web in it... it is more like renting out an Airbnb. The linen was very poor, fluffy bath towels. We didn’t sleep well, the mattress was also poor and the sheet is directly on top of the mattress. No mattress top no nothing. Hygiene Wise not very good I think. We didn’t see the nice couple that is mentioned in the reviews. There was only a Spanish-speaking daddy who couldn’t speak a word of Spanish. We also needed to pay upfront which was a little bit weird. For one night it is fine but don’t expect much out of it for the price you pay. One nice thing is that we saw monkeys in the tree. That was awesome. Email contact with Sonja (the owner)was also very good!!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Small, quite place, spacious, though, as the name suggest, rather "bastillo-like" rooms.
Cons: The breakfast was rather basic and the wifi literally did not work. If you stepped away the main area a little bit, dirt and garbage everywhere.
7.5 Good
Pros: Clean. Nice pool. Good breakfast. Pleasant staff. Nicely decorated.
Cons: No hot water. Few outlets. No bottled water available. Not enough light in room. No extra pillow.
5.0 Okay
Pros: The Building where the rooms are located is really nice. It looks like a watch tower and the pool is nicely integrated into that concept. The breakfast was okay.
Cons: There is plenty of stuff we did not like :/. Our room was very dusty. The bathroom had 2 spider on the ceiling of the shower but the ceiling was to high to get rid of them. The whole shower was limed. There was a huge fridge in our room but no furniture to put your clothes. The fridge was supposed to be the minibar but it was empty. Most importantly do not eat there. They claim to have a restaurant but it's only microwaved fastfood. I have never tasted such a bad burrito.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This property is a real gem and conveniently located between Tambor and Montezuma. It is a true Boutique hotel and gorgeous property. The owner is bringing her Italian touches to the typical CR food and everything from the restaurant was flavorful and prepared fresh. The rooms were comfortable & clean. This was one of the best hot showers we had in all of CR. Like many places in CR, given the terrain of the country, wifi was slow and intermittent. It is just the way it is throughout the country.
Cons: Nothing bad to say about this property. A real gem and good value! We would stay here again anytime!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Stunning place, Castillo is a real castle in the jungle. The staff is friendly, the food at the restaurant onsite is amazing. The hotel is located near many beautiful beaches and one of the nices areas I've visited in Costarica, Nicoya Peninsula. I highly recommend Castillo, one of the nicest places I've ever staid. Timothy
7.9 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly. They made sure our stay was comfortable and that we had everything we needed. We were just stopping through on our way to another place for a vacation, but they made it so our vacation began with them. It was very nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at Castillo was just great! The breakfast was very rich, we had some gallo pinto. We had dinner at the restaurant onsite, we ordered fish and it was very fresh. The place is very clean, our room was very comfortable and neat. The staff was polite and attentive. We asked for extra pillows and towels and the staff brought them right away. Castillo met and exceded our expectations, we had a great time!
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Not a lot. The pool was pretty good.
Cons: Unfriendly staff. No toilet paper on arrival. Not enough towels. No curtains. Expensive drinks. No attention to detail. The place looks good in the pictures, but in reality the owners and staff do not care about the guests and take no pride in their work.

The Barceló Tambor (5-star) hotel, refurbished in December 2012, is located in Tambor Beach, Costa Rica. The hotel is unique because of its stunning natural location that faces a gorgeous beach on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
7.1 Good
Cons: All inclusive means that and at the bar is not,they want me to pay for a not expensive alcoholic drink and at the reception they said one thing in the beginning and later another story,very disappointing.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The beach front and hotel grounds were impeccable.
Cons: Even in low season it was packed. The food was a bit bland, but not too bad. Yet not what you would expect for the cost of the visit.
7.5 Good
Pros: Clean and tidy!
Cons: It does not have claro phone network within the facilities. We had to pay for internet and we had issues connecting. Also, more variety of desserts.
7.1 Good
Pros: Food and drinks were good. The beach is kind of rough, not for kids. The shows and staff are nice.
Cons: Hotel allows people to leave stuff on the tables to "reserve" a spot for the shows, Even if the do not attend to all of them, so tables remains unoccupied for hours while some people are standing. Same happens with the beach and pool chairs. It is really unfair.
