Workable but would not go again - no hot showers
While the staff were nice, they have limited hours (which made it hard to leave my keys and go early to the airport). The sheets and rooms were clean, but the bed was horribly uncomfortable, and the walls were so thin you could literally hear word for word conversations from the kitchen (they provided ear plugs but wow it was loud and they had music til 2 am so I didn’t sleep much). Safe area, though the lock on the door was very small and I did not feel it could withstand anything. The AC worked well, bu you couldn’t close the blinds/curtains above all the way so people walking by could see straight into my bed all night... the food was not great (clean though). Also, in order to get decently warm water you had to turn the water down to a trickle (way less than washing hands) so that didn’t really work for washing hair, and the shower water heater element was plugged in just beside the shower but was not a water proof outlet - huge safety concern! The beach was beautiful. I understand they had lower prices, but this was not up to par even at that price. I need hot water to shower and silence to sleep.

This is a great place to stay if you can live with the noise. I thought the noise would bother me from the club but it was the street noise that was loudest. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay.

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.

Amazing place, right on the beach, right on the water. Rooms are beautiful and offer all the mod cons and their beach bar and terrace is one of the best in Rincon. You will not be disappointed.

Good 6.0
The hotel itself is clean and cute, our room (#1) was nicely decorated and equipped. Hotel team is friendly and helpful. But! The music in the bar goes well past 10pm, so getting an early night is not an option. Too noisy To relax.

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.
