Tambor Tropical Review

Centered on the scenic sweep of placid Bahía Tambor with its warm, shallow water, intimate Tambor Tropical offers "beds with a view" in spacious suites, along with sportfishing, horseback riding, bird-watching, and just lolling in a hammock by the pretty, blue-tile pool. Attractive two-story houses, with up and down suites equipped with kitchens, are entirely built and furnished with varnished, tropical hard woods: floors, ceilings, walls, and even toilet seats. Large front windows provide panoramas of the sea and surrounding gardens—slightly pricier second-floor rooms have the best views—and platform beds really do enable sunrise views. Most rooms have air-conditioning, but sea breezes and ceiling fans keep rooms cool. Carefully prepared meals are served poolside or in the thatch-covered dining room during the rainy months. Paddleboards and kayaks get you out onto the water, and bird-watchers can comb nearby trails with a guide, in search of about 175 species. No children under 16.

    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.
