    Trip of a life time, loving C.R.
    Our original plan was to stay in Jaco for the duration of time in C.R. but we had a bad experience at the first resort, we checked out early and traveled the coast. Went to Manuel Antonio for a couple of night and then Tambor to finish our stay. What a great decision that was!! We had an amazing experience touring the coast and ending up at Barcelo Tambor!

    Staff was very accommodating, especially Carlos. Location and view from the room was perfect. Food could have been better, but overall a very nice place.

    Nothing to get excited about, Ok at best
    Not a bad resort not a great one. Probably better in it's day but things are getting a bit dated. Buffet was Ok but needs more themed variety day to day. Grounds were well maintained, green and clean. My big grip; internet. $20 per day in public areas. I do not go on holiday to surf the web but do need to stay in touch. $5 for 30 min on hotel computers but found them all but useless. A matter of principal, I was not paying $20 for 10 min to check my Email. Most all the hotels and resorts in CR do have a minimum public area access, gratis. A good tip, bring an unlocked smart phone and buy $10 or so of data from the Kolbi kiosk at the airport. Resort has good reception. All in all, not a bad value.

    Don't go for the food. You'll be disappointed.
    Wonderful location. Food was okay. Only one restaurant was open and you can only make reservations from 8am - 9am. It filled up in 15 minutes. We never got to eat there. So we ate at the Buffett every night and it seemed like the same food over and over again. Entertainment was good - but a little risqué for young children at times. Staff was extremely accommodating.
