Great little inn, loud weekend nights. 65 steps from our room to the beach.

Fair 4.0
hostel by the sea
I’m truly amazed that considers Tamboo a “Fantastic” place to stay. This hotel is more like a hostel with cold water, not clean bathroom, uncomfortable beds, LOUD AC (mini jet plane loud- woke us several times through the night) and room with basically no window (was covered entirely by ac unit). We arrived and tried to cancel because the room was not as described- definitely not like the photos shown online. Thought we were getting an ocean view room and instead got a closet along side the service entrance to the kitchen. There is also no WiFi in the rooms and the only area in the bar (only place with WiFi) to sit without feeling obligated to buy something was near two smelly portable bathrooms. Really disgusting. Definitely do not recommend this hotel.

We got lucky
We found this place last minute for a great deal. Location is perfect right on the ocean, central to beaches, shops, and restaurants. It is attached to a resturant and from what we've heard/read the restaurant stays open late so be cautious. The room comes with headphones; however we did not need them due to the fact we stayed only one night (Sunday) during their "off season" The room was small but cute, cold AC, cable, wifi wasn't great. Room 5 is the room in which we were given and I would say it is the worst location-wise out of all of the rooms but can't complain because it wasn't loud and falling asleep to the sound of the waves was just what we wanted.

Honeymoon stay
I stayed here one of the nights of my honeymoon it’s a beautiful place being right on the beach and I enjoyed my stay. I had a little incident with my a/c but the property manager took care of the situation. They have a good staff definitely will stay here in the future

Great stay!
The Tamboo is a quaint charming small beachside hotel. With a great bar/restaurant attached. I would highly recommend it to friends and would love to go back.
