The room was perfect. Great internet! If that is important to you, be assured that it works very well. My husband had to have it for video conferencing every morning. The room was truly fantastic. We stayed in the large honeymoon suite and the view was outstanding! There is so much room in the villa-it is huge!! Plus there is... More

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and we're very glad we chose to stay at Casa Bambora. We really enjoyed relaxing and grilling outside by the pool when we weren't out and about. Joey keeps the place well-maintained and he is so helpful when it comes to recommending good local spots. Our dog also had lots of fun... More

Casa Bambora was great!!! We enjoyed Joey's hospitality from arranging our RT transfers to/from the airport, sharing his knowledge of local dining spots, and casual conversation. We fell in love with "Raya" Joey's new pup. I would highly recommend Casa Bambora if your headed to that area of Costa Rica. This vacation was like having our own place in paradise... More

Another great stay at Casa Bambora. The property and rooms are immaculate. We really enjoyed lounging by the pool and waterfall. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had breakfast on the balcony each morning. The rooftop (just above the 3rd floor) is perfect for watching the sunset. All the amenities you need are here. Fully equipped kitchen inside the... More

We loved it! Simple as that. All the good reviews are bang on. It is a bit up the hill in the southern part of town. We enjoy walking, so the short cut was no problem for us, though a flashlight is required at night. Joey has an interesting place that he works very hard at maintaining. There were a... More

Everyone had an amazing time and are already planning their trips back for next year. There are many reasons we love staying at Joey's. Its charm, cleanliness, Joey's hospitatlity, etc. are just a few that come... More

Returned to Casa Bambora for my third visit this past January. As always, the property was clean and inviting - a great place to relax while enjoying the beautiful view. The rooms have all the amenities needed to feel at home while in Costa Rica. The location is perfect - a very short walk to town and the beach yet... More

We were there for a few days the beginning of Feb and is was great. Here are the +s: Very Quiet, Clean, Laidback, private and fantastic views. Few -s include: lousy shower pressure, and a crazy hill to climb when walking from town. However a very small concern. Joey is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Pablo does a great job keeping...

Thank you for your review. I apologize for the low water pressure, I wish you would have informed me of this during your stay, I'm here to help in any way I can and I do have a water pump to boost the pressure. Most of the time the pressure is great with the gravity feed from the hill where... More

Loved our stay here. Joey was helpful and accommodating. The location is excellent on a hill top with excellent views but still walking distance from town and the beach. Rooms are clean and have balcony with view. Great facilities, nice pool, outdoor central kitchen which would be great for groups. There are four suites so one can get to know... More
