Indulge in a boutique hotel experience at a private villa at Palacio Tropical. Let the villa’s staff take care of meals and arrange excursions so you can enjoy the private beach and pool. A location near Tango Mar puts you within a short drive of activities from canopy tours and fishing to horseback riding and snorkeling, and eight suite-style bedrooms have plenty of room for the whole family or groups of friends.
During your stay, enjoy cook, housekeeping and driver service, including transfers from the Tambor airport and a daily treat of fresh tropical fruit. Spend your days lounging by the pool and water feature or private beach; the pool deck has plenty of loungers for everyone. There’s an outdoor shower for post-swim rinses and a home theater, satellite TV, iPod dock and dial-up Internet access for post-swim relaxing. Sleep in comfort thanks to air conditioning and ceiling fans, and watch the sun rise over the ocean from the villa’s balconies.
With stucco walls, a tiled roof and traditional furnishings, Palacio Tropical takes its inspiration from sophisticated Mediterranean villas. Wrought-iron chandeliers, a spiral staircase and terracotta floors are an elegant backdrop for the living room’s inviting leather sofas and armchairs. The dining room’s brick ceiling and upholstered chairs are an ideal spot for more formal family dinners, while island seating in the gourmet kitchen is perfect for breakfast or snacks.
The eight bedrooms at Palacio Tropical each have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fans, TVs and CD players. There are six bedrooms with king beds and one bedroom with two queen beds. A studio-style bedroom has a king bed and a separate entrance through the property’s garage. Rollaway beds are available to larger parties upon request.
From the villa’s beachfront location in a gated community, it’s a 2-minute walk to the Tango Mar resort, tennis courts, a golf course, exercise facilities, a restaurant and a grocery store. The Barcelo casino and resort is 7 miles from Palacio Tropical, and the town of Tambor and its airport are 10 minutes by car. A transfer from the Tambor airport is included in your stay, but a transfer from the San Jose airport can be arranged at extra cost.

Property is fantastic. Just a reminder, the isolated setting is subject to power and water outages. Food was superb, with a mix of local fare. All fresh. Pool design is perfect, something for everyone. Families, teens and adults can all be accommodated. Beach is great for a short morning walk but waves can be to rough for less accomplished swimmers.
WiFi is spotty at best. Staff took care of all our needs, very professional.
Raquel & Ladee responded to the variety of eating issues,( vegetarian, extreme healthy, limited food acceptance) of various family members and performed well. the $30/ day/ per member was accurate. thanks Diana. John described activity options accurately. we ate lunch away twice, reinforcing the excellence of Raquel's efforts. The Zip line-waterfall outing was fun. the surfing beach blew out, (big waves/wind), kids enjoyed horseback ride. I did not find the Costa Rica guide books until the last day. I recommend future guests pick up one with maps of the area before the trip. Our family asks lots of questions about local issues,(economy, farming, geology, history). John is a very organized, hospitable host with limited knowledge of the economy. I expected more.
We just had a fabulous time.. from watching baby sea turtles run to the ocean after being hatched to zip lining to bon fires on beach and horseback riding- just wonderful..
even the towns that John brought us to- it was so great to see.
Our vacation was wonderful. The villa was better than I expected. The pictures on the web make it appear a tad bit "cheesy" so I was nervous. It is so much better in person. The staff is so accommodating and nice! The meals were great and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this villa as we were very pleased.
Jon, Raquel and the rest of the staff were fantastic. The house is beautiful, the setting is gorgeous and the food was mouth watering.
