The room was great, comfortable bed and we quite enjoyed the restaurant. These owners care about the Tambor community and didn't hesitate to recommend other restaurants...

We stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights and had a great stay. Very clean, spacious and bright rooms. Bedroom, Living Room (with couch that folds into a double bed) and bathroom. We overlooked the beautiful gardens with pool and water fall feature. Quiet, private and the hosts were very welcoming and freindly.
