No Air conditioning (but was very cool when i was there) No Heat (but that was not a big deal) Internet was spotty and only available in the dining room. Room was very clean. Soap was really nice--which is just a thoughtful thing to do. Despite the cool weather mosquitos flourished--and the room had no screen so it made it... More

I have not yet had the opportunity to stay at this quiet, peaceful hotel on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, however I discovered it when we landed our boat at their dock to eat in their restaurant. The food was wonderful (OUTSTANDING chips and guacamole) and the atmosphere was great. The grounds of the hotel are absolutely beautiful and a joy... More

The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the main town, but this is an easy one and gives a great sense of being in an oasis after a day's exploring. I loved the hotel, the staff and the food. We stayed in a bungalow which was very nice indeed. Excellent value for money. The views from the hotel... More

I have been to the Bambu three times and I shall return. The hotel setting, like a garden paradise, communes with you. Views of Santiago and its bay (especially in the evening), and three volcanoes are inspiring. Deep blue skies and beautiful cloud formations add to the grandeur. Simple yet elegant rooms and bungalows are comfortable and clean with good,... More

We loved the Hotel Bambu and the restaurant. It is a beautiful, quiet setting, just a short walk or tuk tuk ride from town. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We would happily stay here again.

I stayed in a nearby rental house and ate many meals at Bambu. You can't beat their Lake-side perch overlooking Santiago lagoon. The water tends to be calmer and more reflective here, and a drink at sunset is heaven. With basic but good-tasting food, Bambu is always popular and sometimes service is slow (but friendly). They don't mind if you... More

We just spent a very relaxing weekend at Hotel Bambu and really enjoyed it. It is set in wonderful and extensive gardens with loads of hummingbirds, birds and butterflies. The children loved the pool and had plenty of space to run around playing. The rooms were clean and tidy, with good bathrooms and powerful showers. The food was really good... More

Comfortable rooms with good food and good service. The coffee is outstanding. Don't forget to being some home. Beautiful well kept grounds and views. Picture perfect. Wonderful stay. Looking forward to another visit in 2014. Bring your own hair dryer.

On May 25th 2013 our daughter got married to a wonderful young man from Santiago Atitlán at the Bambú. It was a total success!

I had lunch here after finding my own hotel disappointing and toured the property. Nice private bungalows that are airy and bright, in a quite area away from the pueblo. Great pool, lukewarm, as in all of Atitlan. The restaurant had nice food and great service - thanks to the servers for the Spanish practice. It's a great property, I'd... More
