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

Nice but nothing in walking distance. The view made me think of Vermont on steroids with bamboo trees. Very nice staff. Wander around inside and out. Watch the big koi pond. They have stairs outside that go further up. If you're young, give it a shot. Bring water. If not, take a walk up a level and see the playground,... More

We have been to this hotel several times, never felt inclined to write about the food because it was simply not up to standard. But we went for lunch today and found a very nice Sunday buffet, well prepared, plentiful and nicely presented. The hotel itself looks like it is now being taken care of,the gardens were in full bloom... More

After a night in dreary Volcan, I was thrilled to find this gem just a short mini-bus (bus stops directly in front of the hotel) or taxi ride from Volcan on the road up to Volcan Baru. I found a super deal on a booking site, called the hotel to see if they'd match (they won't) so booked it online.... More

I´ve stay three days at this beautiful hotel with my wife. The sightseeing , mountains, river, excellent restaurant and serviceable staff made our stay very pleasant. The rooms were just good , nothing more, but we were there to enjoy the surroundings. I recommend it.

My family and I stayed at the Bambito for a week in March 2014 and we had no complaints! This resort offers pretty mountain views with cool temps. Breakfast is included with the room and we enjoyed the wide variety of food that was offered. No issues with the free Wifi and the beds were soft. We explored the grounds... More

Beautiful Hotel located between mountains and a river across the street. Gardens are mixed with fish ponds in the front yard of the hotel. Restaurant and some rooms have this view. Pictures taking, horse riding or just a pleasant walk on the sorroundings and you will feel completely relaxed. Food was excellent and staff very polite and helpful, Definitely a... More

Stayed at Hotel Bambito for one night on 3 February. The hotel reminded us very much of hotels within the Eastern Block 20 years ago. Though the rooms are a reasonably sized they need updating, Insufficient plugs in the room to charge your computer, only available plug in the bathroom! Internet was down the evening we stayed, I assume this... More

It was quite an adventure!! We got lost in our way to the hotel (and I will note that as a fortunate CON, because we got the chance to see amazing views in our wrong way), but other than that it was really good: the staff were friendly, the hotel was clean and nice, although you can see that the...
