My husband and I took a surf trip to Costa Rica and spent a few nights at Bambula. We had a great time and the owner Pierre made us feel at home and we met great people thanks to him. His staff is very friendly and the place is very clean and quiet. Many little cafe in Samara to enjoy good seafood on the beach which is beautiful and comes to live at night with music and people. We will be back.

We stayed at bambula Samara for a couple weeks, me and my girlfriend, Nikole, and we loved it!
It was fun to relax by the pool with the monkey running in the trees and the garden.
The room was really clean and comfortable.
We love the location, near by the beautiful beach of Samara where the waves were waiting for us everyday.
We can't wait to come back! Merci Pierre for making this trip such a memorable one!

I had never been to Costa Rica before and had friends in Nosara to go visit but just did not like the area so a friend suggested Samara, which was great. Nice little sea side town with everything you could need or want for a beach side getaway. Nice people, great food and plenty of night life, beautiful beach for swimming. I have to say that what really made it all come together as a great vacation was my good fortune to find the wonderful little lodge BAMBULA SAMARA with it's great host/owner Pierre Chasle. He has owned a little resort/getaways in Hawaii for years and really knows how to treat his guests with that personal touch. He made me feel like I was at home away from home. It can be hard to find your way around a new placed in a foreign country but with Pierre's help and generous time I really got to experience all that this part of Costa Rica has to offer and meet some of his interesting friends. In addition the accommodation were simple but tasteful and clean and very reasonable. I hope I get a chance to return and spend more time there again. I highly recommend you try the "BAMBULA" experience while your in that part of Costa Rica. Please tell Pierre Hola for me.

Room Tip: Just tell Pierre what you want and he will make sure your comfortable.

Nice place, a ten minute walk past shops to the beach. The pool was a must for cooling down in the hot afternoons. The place is very roomy with a full kitchen and almost every thing you could want for kitchen tools. Great shower and large seperate bath tub. It gets a bit noisy with the wildlife until you get used to it, although to be fair it had rained heavily the first night we arrived and Pierre said the frogs had been affected by this.
Watch your change even in the shops. No-one seems to like giving back the correct change to tourists! Pierre sent us to the El Dorado restaurant in neighboring El Carmine. Excellent seafood soup for about $8 Cdn! Wow! Also try the reserve hike with Alvaro and take the time to check out Camarrillo Beach one bay over.
