We loved our 3rd floor studio and the roof top patio. What amazing sunsets and heat lightning shows night after night on the roof top. The nature path down to town was a great shortcut and not a problem, we even saw a family of monkeys and beautiful birds in the trees along the way. The pool with a waterfall... More

My wife and I stayed with Joey for four months and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The rooms were great and the pool and grill area were both perfect for socializing. Dependable wifi was available throughout the compound; perfect for streaming music at the pool or getting work done (if your office keeps you on a leash).

Casa Bambora is an amazing property with a gracious host and beautiful views. We recently stayed there for 2 weeks (though we were supposed to leave after 1, but just fell in love with Tamarindo and the property). The entire grounds and pool are meticulous. The common area is perfect for cooking and hanging out with new friends. Just a... More

We stayed at Casa Bambora for a week and had a fantastic stay. The grounds were clean and well landscaped. The owner was friendly and helpful. The pool was fantastic and the property was private and close to town (about 5 minutes).

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
