An older hotel - still uses real keys! but what a location tucked into a deep valley with lots of water. The front side is a water park popular with people coming up from sweltering lowlands. We found Torrent Tyranulet a bird that specializes in getting insects under waterfalls. The grounds have many other interesting birds and there are nearby... More

This hotel clearly 'has been' a great place. Now it is only the shadow of its past. A little bit 'run down', very slow service, dirty whisky glases, very average food. Rooms are OK. This hotel needs a new management. With a little bit of efforts it could be a phantastic place. It is a pity.

Hotel Bambito is a very popular and well known place. We visited the grounds on the front of the hotel last January and decided that we would like to stay here some time. They charge a small admission to the grounds and there are many families stopping for a few hours. Cars are parked on both shoulders since parking on... More

Hotel Bambito resort is a classic hotel, very close to the village of Bambito. It’s a great place to stay for the night, especially if your road trip has been a long one. The hotel has a beautiful lagoon and great settings for family pictures. Although the hotel is old it is well preserved. Enjoy the weather, kick back and... More

The stay at the Hotel Bambito was nice. I stayed here in Mid July 2015 for a seminar. After living in the busy area of Washington D.C., the tranquility of this place was Soooo welcome. The staff was no less that excellent. My colleague and friend traveling with me had her Birthday while there. The guys at the restaurant and... More

The Bambito Resort appears to be just a "shell" of what it once was. The grounds are incredible and breathtaking. The staff is super helpful and tries to do their very best, but the rooms are in dire need of remodeling/refurnishing, and the food was average at best. We stayed right in between the dry and rainy season (early May)... More

Bambito is located in Chiriqui province, close to Costa Rica. Is a place of permanent spring weather in the otherwise hot and humid Panama. The hotel is well mantain and rooms are comfortable and clean. If you stay during a weekend, do not miss the Sunday brunch. Ask for fresh trout fish (trucha rebozada). They are just a couple of...

We stayed at Bambito Resort for two nights and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The grounds are beautiful and the setting is amazing. The staff members at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well-appointed with a comfortable king size bed. The first night that we were there, my husband and I had the best... More
