My wife and I went to Tambor to view property we were considering purchasing and we stayed at the Costa Coral. We took two friends with us and I can honestly say that it was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on. I know I speak for all four of us when I say that we completely enjoyed...

We came here on our honeymoon and had a great time! We loved this place. It is a boutique style resort with only a few rooms, but still has everything you could want. The pool area is great and the food at the restaurant was perfect every night. Tambor is a great place to stay because it places you directly...

We visited the Hotel Costa Coral in May 2012 and enjoyed every minute. We were introduced through a Groupon deal with Exotic Escapes and while we had a mix up with Exotic Escapes, the experience we had at Costa Coral more than made up for it. The exceptional, friendly and professional staff complemented the beautiful hotel perfectly. We felt like...

The rooms are nice and clean and spacious. They include a sitting area with a fridge, and comfortable AC in the bedroom. A sliding door opens...

My wife and I took a two week vacation to tour Costa Rica. Tambor and the Costa Coral was one of our stops . What started out as only a 2 night stay turned into a full week! Being a boutique hotel it wasn't overcrowded like a typical resort hotel might be. Because of this you feel like you are...

Wow! I received amazing warm hospitality from the friendly staff at the Costa Coral. I travelled solo and my wonderful experiences while visiting the tropical town of Tambor were enhanced by the daily warm greetings, assistance and conversations with the staff at the charming and cozy hotel. Every meal included an assortment of fresh foods served by efficient and caring...

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here with a Groupon Excursion package. Although there were some issues with Groupon, the hotel was pretty nice, and the staff was super friendly. I would recommend renting a car at the airport, it would give you more mobility once you are at the hotel. Public busing isn't very reliable. Short walk from the...
