Do not book this hotel!!!

Reviewed 17 november, 2021

Do not book this hotel!!!! They do not work with you if you need to cancel. I booked it and realized it takes 4 hours to drive from the airport in order to get there unless you take an additional flight from Liberia or San Jose so I decided to cancel 8 hours after given I made the reservation that night before. I called costumer service to cancel and they referred me to their hotel costumer care email. When I explained my situation during my email they denied my claim and want to charge me full amount of stay for my cancellation. Total scam.

Good for Families

Reviewed 2 november, 2021

My husband and I stayed at this conviently located hotel near the Tambor airport. It is a nice clean hotel with helpful staff. The food was good, the alcoholic drinks barely acceptable, the beach was fantastic, pool nice, but don't book a massage. My husband and I were very disappointed. They were worse than a limp handshake. I don't think they ever gave a massage before us. Otherwise it would be a great place for families with a lot of children's activities.

Not worth it!

Reviewed 26 october, 2021

The good: the staff is nice, food is ok, pool is very nice and my favorite part is the beach! Although is dark sand, the ocean and the view are gorgeous. The bad: boy oh boy. This hotel is not very tourist oriented. Most of the staff doesn’t speak English (I’m a native costarican so it was not a problem for me, but I saw tourists from other countries really struggle), there is only one bar open during the day (the one by the pool), so the lines to get a drink are long. We paid for “premium” and honestly is not worth it, we had breakfast at a separate area of the hotel, you get snacks, but that’s it! You can’t get a drink to go, you can’t get lunch or dinner there, and is just a small room. Also, we went to one of the restaurants (fish and meats) and it was not good at all! My steak was waaayyy undercooked and my partner’s dinner was abismal. They also ask you if you are there for a special occasion when you do your booking, we wrote the reason for our trip, and we thought that maybe they would do something special (leave a note in the room, or at least acknowledge it at check it, but nothing), like what is the point of asking then? I think your guest services lack a bit of training in that area. Honestly (and again, I say this as a costarican) this hotel is more catered towards locals, there is a lot of costarican families there, and although is nice, you won’t get a level of service like in other hotels in Costa Rica. I suggest the Westin or any other hotel in the Guanacaste province. The beach was the best part of the whole place.

Barceló playa tambor. AVOID! Booking policies are a joke, management deliberately avoiding answering questions!

Reviewed 7 october, 2021

We had our reservation changed by the hotel due covid, couldn't fly again due restrictions. When we tried to extend or postpone or anything just got nonsense answers, or simply not acknowledgement of Barceló policies when we point out that we were entitled to. I dealt with Victor Rangel "Manager " and honestly I'm guessing his parents are first cousins! I will file a complain with the costa rican Tourism office, in the meantime avoid disappointments and support other hotels because after all the emails sent and the replies received( when he eventually decided to) were just a whole waist of time and money. Would I ever put a foot in that place? Absolutely NOT.

CAUTION: Barcelo Tambor's REFUND policy is FAKE!!

Reviewed 11 august, 2021

We had a trip scheduled for February 2021 and had to cancel due to COVID travel restrictions. We cancelled within the full refund window - as stated in their hotel policies - but we still have not received our refund! Countless emails to several staff and managers at the hotel, but they keep saying my "refund will come soon". Now they don't even reply anymore! Two rooms for 1 week long stay is a lot of money! We followed their refund rules completely, but management at this hotel is terrible, non-responsive, and have been lying to me for the last 6 months!! I just want my money back! It should be a very simple situation.
