A decent stay, but miles away.
Posted Aug 9, 2016
The resort is very close to the beach in Playa Tambor. The pool area was very well maintained and relaxing. Unfortunately, there were many negatives. Barcelo Tambor is about 4 hours from the closest airport and the drive is mostly gravel roads with large pot holes.The hotel staff at the front desk was friendly, but those in the dining hall seemed bothered by any request. The food at all restaurants (especially the included buffet) was average at best. Bars were consistently out of various alcohols to make their signature cocktails which left little options for included drinks. Entertainment in the evenings is 100% Spanish, so if you only speak English, you'll have a hard time enjoying most of it. Also, our AC broke on the second day and it was never repaired. In summary, I would not recommend the hotel.
