Tambor Tropical Review

You don't come here for the beach—it's not the prettiest stretch of sand—but the water is shallow and calm, and the attractive Tambor Tropical is a convenient base for anyone interested in sportfishing, horseback riding, or bird-watching, or for those who simply seek an intimate setting in which to loll by the pool. The two-story houses are entirely built and furnished with varnished, tropical hard woods: floors, ceilings, walls, and even toilet seats. The large windows running across the front give them a great view of the sea and surrounding gardens—second-floor rooms have the be but are a little pricier. Platform beds provide sunrise views. The sea breeze and ceiling fans cool the rooms better than air-conditioning, and the lack of televisions inspires rest and relaxation. Carefully prepared and presented meals are served beside a lovely blue-tile pool or in the thatch dining room during the rainy months; on Monday they have a popular barbecue. The hotel also offers bird-watching tours with local guides.

    Great Place to Relax

    The suites are wonderful and the woodwork is incredible. We were able to enjoy watching the sunrise from our bed as we had such a great view. All of the suites have a large deck area with chairs etc for enjoying the view of the beach and the gardens. The hotel is great for a relaxing few days to get away from it all. The beach wasn't the best feature but the pool area was nice. There were also a number of activities available, we enjoyed a horse ride in the surrounding area.
