LOCATION Undoubtedly, Bambu has one of the best locations in Canoa. Situated at the far east of the long beach, its position allows for uninterrupted and uncluttered views of the beach, ocean and surrounding cliffs. You need only take a few steps off the doorstep to land your feet in soft, white sand. WHAT THEY DID GREAT There is no...

Great location, hotel by the beach surrounded by palm trees and lush tropical vegetation. Hammocks abound. The kind of place preferred by backpackers and adventurous travellers. Avoid if you are a demanding traveller. Rooms are clean if basic, hot water sometimes scarce. Loved the relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast not included, and not particularly varied, but loved the quality of the food...

Just so I don't need to think much about feeding myself in the morning. But otherwise, it's a wonderful place to stay - comfortable rooms, hot showers, plenty of hammocks, options with fan cooled and air conditioned rooms, restaurant has good food and there's nothing but sand and football players between you and the sea. There's a saltwater river that...

I have frequented Bambu a dozen times over the last month. The owner\manager has no respect or appreciation for his customers and staff. It makes for overworked, slow servers with low morale and customers who feel as unwelcome victims rather than guests. The only nice thing to say is the setting is lovely on the beach front. The food is...

It's a beautiful location and hotel, but don't go there is my advice. We arrived in the afternoon, with no place booked. The guy behind the counter said he had a hut free and said it was 15 dollars for the hut. We had troubles believing that - it was right on the beach and had aircon. He kept on...

I love the Hotel Bambu. But in the nice, friendly outdoor restaurant the service has become deplorable. Before the food and service was normal to good. Now there is the worst service on the beach. Example. Sit 20 minutes in a 1/3 full facility and the waiters 20 feet away chat, stare into space and act like they wish they...

We stayed at room 20. Which is in second floor with a perfect view on the ocean and river. We loved that! But there are things they really should attend to: the toilet has a really bad smell, the water in the shower was cold, but there is warm water in the sink, and the sheets had a funky smell....

We spent a couple nights here after a week of whitewater kayaking adventures. It was amazing - so relaxing, right on the beach, great food and drinks, open air bar and pool table. I can't wait to go back - my happy place!

This is a great place. Food is fantastic, service is great. Located directly on the beach. With lots of activities going on & plenty of local shopping. Swimming & surfing is a must do. There are surfboard rentals, beach chairs & umbrellas.
