    “Amazing stay at hotel Barcelo Tambor”

    This all inclusive hotel is amazing for friends, family, couples and even business trips. The friendly environment created by the cordial staff made my stay even more pleasant. I’d like to acknowledge Smerlyn Mendez, for his generous and attentive service, Gustavo Fernandez for his enthusiasm, and Francisco for his lively ness brought to work everyday. He rooms were made certain to be clean. I’d also like to acknowledge all the maids for their cooperation to provide their best work. You can be sure I will be returning to this hotel. A big thumbs up to all staff.

    “Family vacation”

    I’m always happy going to this hotel that’s all inclusive. This hotel is a very good place to go relax with family, friends or alone. Everyone is very kind and the customer service is great. There are shows each night that both children and adults can enjoy. Activities are held each day as well. I would also like to recognize the staff for their amicable behavior such as; Alonso Fernandez, Yendry Mora, Edwin Fernandez, and many others that make the stay lively. I hope to be returning soon and have another memorable stay.

    “A five night stay became one”

    Im not the kind of person who gives a bad review generally. You have to be really bad to get a bad review from me. Barceló Tambor earned it. First the good. Lots of cool wildlife on the grounds, awesome beach, and a super professional and friendly staff earned them 2 stars. The bad? It was dirty, dingy and old. The house offerings of wine and drinks were swill and if you didn’t like it you had to pay more. $12 a day for WiFi!!!! In 2018!!! You’re trapped! Nothing close by to relieve you from the pain and suffering. But the worst part was trying to sleep in a dingy little room that smells of mold and urine. Super loud and annoying entertainment aimed at local kids, good on them! Couldn’t take it. We left with no refund and it was worth the loss.

    “Edwin made it worth it”

    Edwin Fernańdez was AMAZING at the Japanese restaurant!! His service was the best since we have been here. We had a bad experience with a different staff memeber from being extremely rude. However, he made it all better and is the only reason that I am leaving a good review instead of a bad one. Thank you for turning the day around !

    “Nice all inclusive for a short stay”

    People here are very kind and helpful. It is a 4 star hotel with food and drinks included but what was strange was that wifi was not included, cost is an extra US$12 a day per user. It is located in an area between 2 rivers where crocodiles move from one to the other making this a very difficult way to use the ocean, afraid of crocs eating you. Clean and fun activities as well as good kids and family shows. Itis located in a remote area, far away from everything. To get here I had to go throught tall hills, mountains and rough terrain. Fill up your tank and get a 4x4.

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
