Very comfortable studios/bedrooms with everything you need, great communal area with clean pool, bar area, board games and washing machine. Outstanding views. A real personal touch to make you feel right at home and a very safe space to be out and gay. Close to the beach at torre del mar and other local adventures. Accessible by car only. Prefect... More

We enjoyed a fab week at Bambu and with excellent weather for so early on in the season. The view from the retreat is beautiful; we enjoyed eating our meals out on the terrace with the view of the mountains in the background. V. relaxing: outside dinners, in the sun, in flip flops, with an almost panoramic view of the... More

We had 11 days in Bambú, I arrived with one friend and left with 12. The weather wasn't great for the first few days then it got better and we could truly appreciate where we were. The place is beautiful and you can see forever. I would definitely recommend having a car there. There are plenty of places nearby to... More

Staying at Bambu was a new experience for me and one I will most definatly enjoy again. The company of other women was fantastic with a real communial feeling. The shared facilities whilst still maintaining your own privacy is the best mix for me. The ever changing mountain views against a bright calbalt blue sky is wonderous everyday and then... More

I needed to spend a couple of days re charging my batteries having moved to Spain to set up a bar and restaurant business www.limonerestepona.com . Bambu was the ideal spot. In a lovely location with beautiful grounds and accommodation. Catherine & Suzanne greeted me on arrival with two of their friends and invited me for a glass or two... More

Basic accomodation, not luxury accommodation. Not as clean as expected. The resident cats sleep on the terrace furniture making most unusable for those with allergies. Disappointed to find no offer of a change of linen (sheets and towels) after the first week.

As is the case for the owners of all holiday accommodation we hate getting bad reviews! However I guess it is inevitable - you can't please everyone - we all have different tastes and preferences. But we do take on board every single negative comment and learn from them to improve the experience for future guests. Unfortunately the weather experienced... More

I was blessed with good people, weather and a comfortably clean room all under a gorgeous hilley back drop to Bambu which felt like a de-tourised part of Spain. Traveling on my own I was well looked after by Catherine and Susannah. There excursions were phenomenal!! I recommend this paradise to lone female travelers!

This was my first trip to Spain, ever. I was inspired to plan the trip because this resort was hosting a writing retreat and I thought I could work on my skills and have a great getaway at the same time. I really can't say enough good things about Bambu. Stunning views. Relaxing environment. And we met wonderful women who... More

It's clean, comfortable, quiet, the surroundings are beautiful and there is a relaxed atmosphere. In the days that I've stayed in dedicate them to swimming, lazing in the sun loungers by the pool reading , listening music, get to know others that... More
