Price was good. Jacuzzis didnt work, and the wifi was terrible. Wouldnt work in my room whatsoever. I needed to be connected for my job and this was very important to me and it was just awful. Location is just a few blocks from the beach which is really nice.

This is a great hotel. It is hard to find a hotel that is quiet enough for a family with small children, but this almost did the trick. There was just one major problem... The construction next door. They were tearing down a wall and 5 of the 7 days of our stay, there was very loud pounding all day.... More

I just came back on Monday from playa, I stayed at Bambu suites for the second time, the previous was on August last year. This is maybe one of my favorite hotels in playa, located in "la nueva Quinta". It's nice, cozy, and has everything you need for a good stay for a fair price. Even the smallest (which are... More

We stayed at Bambu Suites right before the high season kicked in (December 8-15), we reserved the two bedroom/ two full bath 'master suite'. Since we booked earlier in the year (April 2012) taking advantage of a special promo that gave us a great rate (worked out to $100 a night with taxes included). The suite was huge and perfect...

Stayed here for 15 days and there where no problems what so ever.. It's a great place, big rooms and a small pool and 2 jacuzzis on the roof. We used them a lot. I never saw any body use the pool, but you really not need it. The beach is very close and you got the jacuzzis. It relly... More

I am on the phone with Expedia now to resolve issues I had with this hotel as hotel management has yet to respond to me. Expedia informed me that if I had contacted them while I was there, they would have been able to assist me. Unfortunately I did not pay the expense of having an international calling plan/services or... More

We got a king suite for around $55 dollars and found this to be an excellent deal. The room was clean and the front desk was extremely friendly. They had many local restaurant suggestions, all of which turned out to be wonderful, inexpensive meals. Sure, the furniture is oddly distributed throughout the room and the kitchen has a blender instead... More
