We stayed for five nights and had the best time in San Augistinillo and Bambu. Bambu is a very chill and laid back place, just like its owner. We had a look at all of the Bambu cabanas houses, all were of good quality, large, either with one or two double beds and spacious bathrooms. Cabanas are clean and built...

Imagen yourself in a bambuhut with terrass overlooking the ocean. Paradise? Well, it's Bambu in San Agustinillo! Memo is the perfect host. He made us feel like home from the second we walked in. Bambu is located close to several good restaurants (but don't miss the place next door, or the Frappuccinos at La Mora) and directly by the beach....

Perhaps I caught them at a bad time (owner was away), but I thought Bambu was an average place and that you could do better in San Agustinillo or nearby Mazunte. I understand and like the laid-back beach vibe in this part of Mexico, but it was just too loose here. It seemed at times that there were no staff...

Forget, corny Cancun and touristy Tulum - San Agustinillo is paradise (and unlike the other two, still actually feels like you're still in Mexico). And Bambu is a wonderful place to call home in paradise. The cabins are pretty basic but are clean and nicely decorated and the beds are big. We thought the best part was the way the...

Just stayed 7 nights at Bambu and absolutely loved it. Toplocation at a marvelous quiet beach (in july), really sweet people, fanatstic rooms in kind of Flinstone-style with great view over Pacific. We stayed in Bambu-room, which probably is the best room. Superbreakfast just nextdoor on the beach. If you want to relax this is the place. Have fun!

We stayed at Bambu in the middle of March. We didn’t have any reservation and hoped to find some hotel upon arrival. When we get a taxi at Huatulco airport and asked a driver about a nice hotel in San Agustinillo, he suggested Bambu. But we decided to have a look at other hotels. After visiting 3 or 4 of...

My wife and I spent 6 Nights at Bambu. Loved it! We had the room upstairs with a great view of the ocean a large deck (surrounding a Coconut tree) and sliding door / walls that open for a open air feel. The room had a second level loft with another double bed. all of this under a natural thatched...

For the perfect balance of a comfortable and laid back beach holiday you can't beat hotel Bambu in San Augustinillo. The rooms are all thatched in traditional fashion with high ceilings open to the ocean, not twenty metres from your door. You couldn't get closer to the beach! There are four poster style beds with sprawling mosquito nets at night...
