CNN GO has Tamboo Tavern on their Best 50 Beach Bars in the World list, calling it "...a bar where you spend lunch time bathing on the sands and drinking pina coladas, the afternoons watching old black and white movies in a cozy corner and the evenings listening to live Latino music while humpback whales break the ocean surface in front of the glowing sun". Esquire Magazine named Tamboo Tavern one of The Best Bars in America- twice, describing it as "...not a beach bar but a bar on a beach...Tamboo fends off every ounce of hackneyed Jimmy Buffettisms the way a beach bar couldn't possibly do…" Then, Travel + Leisure Magazine named Tamboo Tavern one of America's Best Beach Bars calling it "Simply one of the most romantic, sultry beach bars imaginable. Sit on the beachfront deck with a drink and watch for whales, play footsie in the sand with your loved one, and welcome the evening with hot Latin rhythms." Conde Nast Travel named Tamboo one of the Best Caribbean Beach Bars with a two-page spread. As if that were not enough, Bacardi Rum awarded Tamboo Tavern with its Best Mojito Trophy for two years in a row. Tamboo Beside the Pointe also was recently selected for the Puerto Rico Tourism Company Quality Award. Now, with its scheduled renovations, Tamboo Tavern will be better than ever.
