After 7 nights, we didn't want to leave. It was better than we could have hoped for. Spectacular views, quiet, and clean. Joey was a fantastic host. He and his establishment helped make our trip a dream come true!

My husband and I rented Studio 2B and some friends of ours, another couple, stayed in the 3rd floor studio. We had an amazing time during our stay and spent many hours in the...

We did not get into Tamarindo until 7 pm and had to meet the owner "Joey" at his local bar down the street. He was nice enough to drive us up and get us checked in. Joey and my girlfriend had a difference of opinion about a local surf camp in Tamarindo, and I think he thought that it upset...

My wife and I stayed here April 25th to the 30th. We loved the big beautiful room(Studio 2b) and the gorgeous sunset view from it's large windows.

We spent a week in the main floor apartment and thoroughly enjoyed Casa Bambora. We are older than the majority of the guests seem to be, but we felt every bit as welcomed by Joey, his dogs and Teresa. The apartment was comfortable and had just enough of everything needed in the kitchen, which we appreciated as we did a...
