“CASABAMBORA - GET THE FLAVOR OF COSTA RICO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

We have stayed at Casabombora several times in the past 8 years. The view from the top is beautiful and you also have a beautiful view from the room. The apartments are fully equipped for cooking and you can buy groceries in town and cook your own meals in the apartment or on the grill at the barbecue by the pool while watching sports on the TV that hangs over the bar. Staying here certainly beats spending 100+ for an expensive hotel room in one of the hotels in town. It's only a 10 minute walk to town and it is quiet and peaceful away from the sounds of the town. There is a nice pool and the owner, Joey, is very helpful in giving information on where to go and what to see. He also speaks English and Spanish. We have recommended Casabambora to friends and relatives who have also stayed there and been very pleased.

Casa Bambora is a great place to stay, resting up on a hill with sweeping views of the mountains and ocean.

We had a full kitchen, large bachelor room with 2 balconies, and an amazing rooftop patio. There's a great pool with waterfall and outdoor kitchen/bar with gas barbecue and all amenities.

The location is far enough away (5 minutes) from the nightlife to be quiet, but close enough to walk everywhere.

Joey was a great host, very friendly and accomodating; he booked all our excursions and our shuttle to/from the airport, and was able to secure discounts with all his contacts for us.

We fell in love with Tamarindo and Casa Bambora, highly recommend it and will go back!

If you are visiting Tamarindo, we would definitely recommend that you stay at Casa Bambora. We were extremely comfortable in our condo which was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay and is situated in a very safe area. The location is great because it is off the main street, but just a short, 5-minute walk from all the action. There is a 360 degree view of the whole city and beach from the top balcony and the sunsets are amazing! The on-site pool is also very nice and the wireless internet is high speed. Joey is a great guy and very accommodating. If we ever visit Tamarindo again, we would definitely want to stay at Casa Bambora!
