Tango Mar HotelPosted Mar 12, 2014
Pros: Clean and well layed out.
Cons: Beach cleanliness, alot of debri on beach.
Location: We did go to Montezuma about 30min away you can rent 4 wheelers and go on some island tours, but not much else around very close.
Very nice place. Very large property including a small 9 hole golf course. The beach was nice it would have been nicer if they would keep the beach clean of debri but not a big deal. The ocean was to rough to swim in but the hotel has a couple of swimming pools.The staff was very freindly and spoke english and spanish well. The hotel food was excellent. My wife and I had a very nice time and would recommend this hotel.

Beach front cozinessPosted Dec 11, 2013
Pros: Beach access, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good food.
Location: The location is a bit remote, several excursions - snorkeling, fishing, nature, etc. can be booked through hotel, great surfing less than 1 hr drive
Our stay at Tango Mar was a very pleasant experience. What's not to like? - a lovely beach, short forest hikes, delicious food, comfortable rooms, beautiful landscaping, and a friendly, attentive, and helpful staff. Most everyone made us feel as if they were our hosts and were truly concerned that our stay and hotel-booked excursions were as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The atmosphere was very relaxing. It was a bit remote which was nice when we were "home" for the night or engaging in one of the many activities available on site, but it made for a bit of a journey when we ventured out to explore the fantastic surfing beaches, snorkeling, and nature walk areas. Be prepared for some rough roads in places. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay long enough to try all of the amenities like horseback riding, golf, spa, and other fun stuff that Tango Mar has to offer. Guess that means a return trip in the future. :)

Beautiful Hotel Right on the BeachPosted Dec 6, 2013
We had a really nice time at Tango Mar. The staff was very nice, especially all the bartenders. We went snorkeling and horseback riding. The only thing I would say bad about the horseback riding is the horses are fairly small and had some trouble with the trails they took us on. They were just too rocky and hard for the poor horse to get around on. I was also way too big for the horse and I'm only 120lbs. The hotel was great though. The food was pricey but tasty and the mixed drinks by the pool were awesome. One night our water heater went out so we couldn't use our jacuzzi tub that night, which was annoying since we spent so much on a jacuzzi suite. But once fixed it was great! I would recommend staying here if you are looking for a nice secluded hotel on the beach with an awesome pool.

Beautiful quiet beach area.Posted Aug 17, 2013
Pros: Great beach setting allowing easy access from room to pool to ocean.
Cons: The restaurant could have had more selection over the week - somewhat limited menu if you were to stay 5 - 7 days.
Location: Outside the hotel compound there was limited activity. You definitely need a car to get around.
When we checked in we were originally put into a room where we discovered it would not work for one of our handicapped traveling companions. The hotel made immediate accommodation and could not have been more pleasant about it.

Great staffPosted Jul 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
Staff was excellent. short hike to waterfall and secluded beach was beautiful. Curu wildlife, jungle, and beach best part about this area! Secluded with loud surf. The food at dinner is only so so. It would be better if they offered some more traditional CR dishes like arroz con camerones or a fish sandwich.

Great hotel right on the beachPosted May 10, 2013
Pros: Proximity to the beach. Free breakfast.
Cons: Wi-fi didn't work very well from our room, but was available and easily accessible in the lobby area.
Location: We stayed in the hotel as it was in a great location by the beach. It is overall in a remote location (a plus for most).
The Tango Mar is a great hotel that is right on the beach. The rooms have ample space and are very comfortable and unique. We had a great view of the beach from our room and everything was close by. The staff was very accomodating, and they even made a special meal for us when we requested it. One thing I would mention is that the roads can be a bit rough getting to the hotel, so if you're travelling from the San Jose area, I would definitely recommend taking the ferry in order to avoid the bad roads. Also, there were bugs, but this is not a fault of the hotel as it is in such a tropical place. There is a nice waterfall hike and a bunch of pools to relax in. I would highly recommend this place.

Most amazing honeymoon !Posted Apr 24, 2013
My husband and I stayed here for 9 nights in April 2013 and I can honestly say that it was a perfect place to relax, eat great food, visit beautiful places in Costa Rica and experience Costa Rica from a gorgeous residence. We took a few trips around the area visiting Montezuma, ziplining on a canopy tour, visiting waterfalls, and nature reserves, as well as surfing trips around the Nicoya Penninsula, so plenty to do, and all arranged wonderfully. The meals were gorgeous, and the staff are super friendly, very helpful, and were great to talk to. We stayed in a Tiki Beach House right on the beach, which was decked out with a jacuzzi in the room, a few steps to the 3 lovely pools, and a few steps to the beach which is stunning. It's pretty lovely to relax whilst seeing howler monkeys in the trees, iguanas on the wander in the sun, and watch the ocean whilst sipping some great Costa Rican Guaro! - get some of the local firewater in you! Above all having stayed in many places around the world, this was the first time that we have had the owrner of the hotel visit us at dinner each night and make sure that every guest is happy. Hilde is wonderful, and very interested in getting to know you and make your stay perfect. It's pretty lovely to have the person that owns the whole property take the time to speak to you personally each day, it's a lovely personal touch. Make sure you also visit the Isle of Tortuga if you stay here, it's a gorgeous trip.
