The room was adequate, the AC really good. It was conveniently located and the food pretty decent. The best thing about it was Lupe, a co manager who went out of her way to make you welcome and valued.

Big Bamboo had all the basic amenities you could want. A/C, Hot Water, TV (you don't really want a TV in Costa Rica!!!!), WiFi, on site food! The place is the best bargain we got the entire time we were in Costa Rica. Uvita is not incredibly touristy, but there are plenty of cabinas, shops, grocery store, one bank, beaches,... More

It was easy to find and conveniently located in Uvita. Room was very clean, TV was great. AC worked really well. Food was good, Lupita was sweet and always around to help us with any needs. We met some German travelers and Americans. Walking around the neighborhood was pleasant and gave us a good feel for Uvita.

The room was big enough for 2 people and we had a lot of space for our things. The room was also clean and we had an aircondition. The hotel is located near the center so if you don't have car it's easy to reach the beach or some restaurants and supermarkets. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. We... More

Lupe (the manager) was wonderful - friendly, helpful and caring. The rooms were simple, clean and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. Although Big Bamboo is a little off the main road, it was a nice walk to and from town. Traveling advice: make sure you have a ride to and from Big Bamboo when you need to transport luggage. The...

The price was right though the location leaves a bit to be desired, if you have a car you will manage. Staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Unfortunately no pool here, but I am told it may come in the future.

It's been since this past Easter since our one and only stay (so far) at Big Bamboo, but I swore to myself after such a great stay, and after benefitting from TripAdvisor reviews so many times, that it was time for me to join TripAdvisor, and actually leave this tip for others: It’s really important that you are honest with...

Great location, just a couple of miles away from National Park, banks, supermarket & good restaurants just around the corner. Facilities are acceptable, bathroom needs improvement, though. Everything is clean and beat. Nice, warm attention

During my stay at The Big Bamboo, I enjoyed amazing food (including a delicious lobster cooked by the Chef and caretaker Lupe), visited the breath-taking beaches in the area (very close proximity), slept in a very comfortable room with all the amenities of home (such as; a warm shower, A/C, and wifi), swam in multiple serene and secluded water falls...
