I had a great time staying at Bambu with my boyfriend on our vacation. The place is very relaxing and right on the beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable and Memo is extremely friendly and helpful. He gave us advice about what activities to do and when to go. We're glad we took his suggestion to go to Ventanilla,...

My wife and 9 year old daughter stayed here for 4 nights and would have happily stayed a week more if we could have. This is one of those wonderful places for people who are low-maintenance, self-sufficient travellers who want the comfort of home, but don't need someone to wait on them. Guillermo (Memo) is a kind and thoughtful host,... More

Bambu is one of those "traveller" type places where you actually get to meet the other interesting people staying there. The layout of the property is conducive to conversation with the open air kitchen centrally located among the bungalows. It's also super easy to find your quiet spot in a hammock in the shade of the palms in front of... More

My family (two teens, my wife and I) spent a glorious four days at Bambu in late April. It is a wonderfully casual, relaxed atmosphere and Memo, the owner, is a very chill and welcoming host. We fell asleep and awoke to the sound of crashing waves every day and night. The feeling of living right on the beach was... More

When Memo, the owner was still setting Bamboo up I was fortunate to spend my honeymoon there at this absolutely beautiful beach. The service was great, the beach is wonderful and the rooms were delightful. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there, you wont be disapointed.

The beach is perfect, the rooms fantastic. There is no restaurant on site, but a number of good ones a short walk away. You can grill for yourself in the outdoor kitchen. Memo is very generous with his boogie boards. No need to bring your own. And he is generous about letting you use a shower and spare room if... More

great place, beautifull beach, fantastic owners, the cutest dog on earth.....you don't wanne leave. However, like aparker 1952 stated before, if you like luxury (television, restaurant etc.) and service people cleaning all the time, than this place is maybe not for you. We loved it (much better than more expensive places on the same beach) and will certainly be back.... More

We also loved Bambu, for all the same reasons listed by everyone else. It's a very informal place and probably not for you if you like a lot of staff and service people floating around waiting on you, but my husband and I are informal people and prefer the environment in a place like this. If you want to contact... More

We found Bambu 5 years ago and have dreamed about coming back ever since. Finally made it back (fly to Huatulco from Oaxaca if you can) and were so glad we chose Bambu again! Memo and Miguel were so accommodating and always good for a chat. The rooms are unbelievable. Architecturally magnificent, the massive bamboo poles supporting the thatched roofs.... More
