OK But 95% of the guests were local Costa Rican's

The staff were all very pleasant but only a few spoke English but our little Spanish sufficed. They were generous with the drinks and the food was good but their beef and pork were hard to chew. The place was clean but you are not close to any towns so without a car you are trapped at the resort except if you purchase an excursion. We would not go back.

A Good Vacation

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Many spoke very little English but we were okay. I would have rated the staff a 5 except the concierge gave us poor directions twice. The entertainment staff was phenomenal and really made sure our children were included despite their lack of Spanish. They felt very welcomed and special. The rooms are slightly dated but need a deep clean. A/C unit condensation dripped on us in the shower. Food was just okay. Food needs to be better protected from bugs in the open air. Snack hut night cook excellent!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you decide to fly to Tambor, the air strip is right next to the resort. There is a Budget car rental right up the road so you can still rent a car and get around. We rented in San Jose and drove to Tambor as we weren't aware.

Everything was great, except for

Everything was great, except for the front desk was very unorganized, and the fact that the horseback riding was free for 30 mins, but when I asked for it the second day, they changed to it requiring a $10 fee and stated they are no longer running the free 30min horseback rides this month, when the prior day they were. So I feel that management is very unorganized at the operations.

Bon emplacement

Nous gardons un assez bon souvenir de l'hôtel,dans le parc nous pouvions observer plusieurs animaux ,notamment les aras,iguanes,singes hurleurs ,écureuils etc. La plage est grande et bien pour nager nous avons même eut de la chance de nage à côté des raies. Le moins c'est le personnels au restaurant, les filles ne sont en général pas très souriante et le week end c'est plein ,plein de Ticos assez bruyants.l'hotel est très grand à côté des petits cabinas sympa.
