The beach is perfect, the rooms fantastic. There is no restaurant on site, but a number of good ones a short walk away. You can grill for yourself in the outdoor kitchen. Memo is very generous with his boogie boards. No need to bring your...More

great place, beautifull beach, fantastic owners, the cutest dog on earth.....you don't wanne leave. However, like aparker 1952 stated before, if you like luxury (television, restaurant etc.) and service people cleaning all the time, than this place is maybe not for you. We loved it...More

We also loved Bambu, for all the same reasons listed by everyone else. It's a very informal place and probably not for you if you like a lot of staff and service people floating around waiting on you, but my husband and I are informal...More

We are travelling to Oaxaca this Nov and are thinking of staying at Bambu in a 1st floor room; looks like it may be cooler than the ground floor rooms with the options of opening the doors at night while you sleep. We have been enchanted by its rustic charm, quiet and oh so beautiful beach and excellent reviews, but we're a little worried it might be more like a hostel/backpackers than a hotel. Is this the case or am I overthinking it? We were also looking at some of the other hotels nearby that had a pool. Did anyone miss having a swimming pool to dip in after a day on the beach? Lastly, can anyone recommend any places to eat near by? From looking at a map it looks like there are more food options in Zipolite, is this easy to walk to or are there enough places in San Agustinillo to satisfy drink and dinner options throughout the day? We've opted for San Agustinillo instead of Zipolite as a base as it's quieter and looks like it might be better for swimming. Be good to hear your thoughts! Thanks so much!
