My husband and I spend a month in Bambula Samara. Is near everything in 5 minutes you will be at the beach. Nice pool. You can see monkeys and beautiful birds and butterflies. Samara is a great place to spend time in Costa Rica.

We totally enjoyed our stay for one month at bambula in samara. The upper iguana apartment is a spacious 1 bedroom with full bathroom, kitchen and livingroom. We ate many meals on the large porch overlooking the pool and lovely gardens - lots of birds and even howler monkeys came to visit. The home is located on the edge of... More

Very well located, clean and a great owner. The pool is great when you want to cool off. Very friendly atmosphere not a bad word to say about the place. It's my second time there and i love it! Thanks Pierre for the great BBQ on my last day see you next year!

Outside located kitchen equipment, pot and pans, is in bad condition. There is only few glasses (we found just 1) and few old forks and knives. There is also... More

Thanks Pierre (& Genevieve too). A wonderful week spent here, in this little paradise. Truly a great deal. Our daughter Zoe, at age 6, loved the pool, as a great size for her, and easy to keep an eye on for us. Nice short walk to the beach, shops, groceries, tour companies, around the corner from the bus stop....and all... More

My friend and I just returned from Samara. We stayed 6 nights at Bambula and have nothing but positive things to say. Pierre was very informative and full of wonderful suggetions. We took a shuttle from San Jose to Samara and were more than pleased with the transportation. I'm glad we weren't doing the driving. Our primary goal was to... More

I stayed there for 3 weeks while attending Intercultura Spanish school. I had a wonderful time Pierre was very helpful with his knowledge of the area. The cabinas are perfect for 1 or 2 people very comfortable and well maintained. The Bambula is in a great location close to everything. I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for three weeks while studying Spanish at the Intercultura Language school. The location is great--very close to the shops, restaurants and beach. The complex itself is beautiful and the inner courtyard with the pool is very secluded and surrounded by lush, beautiful vegetation. The owners were wonderful and treated us as welcomed guests the whole time we... More

Very helpful friendly hosts, spacious beautiful apartments in a quiet secluded Place close to the Center of Samara. We really enjoyed our stay in Bambula a lot. The kitchen was fully equipped, the bedroom very big and the bathroom comfortable.
