Service and Staff
Property condition


I love the breakfast, was very organized and have a lot options for food, very good. The hotel is literally in front of the ocean, some of the rooms have the ocean view. I didn’t like how the bathroom have dark spots between the tiles, looks like need some cleaning or was mold and a lot of the objects in there looks obsolete in need to be replaced like the small fridge and the AC system.

All a glamor of the 80's lost by the lack of maintenance. Very rundown facilities that do not justify the high price charged. Unfortunate.

Stayed 1 night in Aug 2018


The service staff was very nice and helpful, which was a strong point, but over the 10 days we stayed there we only had hot water for showers 3 days, our lock to our room did not work for 4 days such that we had to go to the front desk to ask someone to let us in every time we left and then returned to our room. They offered to move us to another room, but all they needed to do was just reset the lock, which was done after about 4 days. The location was nice, and we would like to have given it a better rating since the service staff was good, but for the reasons mentioned with the room it is hard to give it more than a medium to poor rating. If they up their game on this could be a very nice place to stay.

Stayed 10 nights in Jun 2018


Terrible service. Rooms outdated.

I had to wait too long for a room. Hotel staff didn't even offer water. Staff completely unprepared. Bad experience overall. I don't recommend.

Tropical Tambau - needs a retrofit
