We were at Bambu for just one week, but came back so relaxed and felt as if we had been there for much longer. The apartment provided everything we needed, was clean and very comfortable. The pool was lovely - very clean - perfect for swimming or just lazing about. Plenty of loungers, nice shady bar area - and even three gorgeous cats!
We met both couples and solo travellers - everyone was so friendly and most evenings we spent with other people - although that wasn't necessarily what we had planned - but there was no pressure to socialise if you wanted to be more private. We walked into the village a couple of times - which is steep and not a journey you would want to do in full sun carrying shopping - although a taxi back wasn't too expensive if there are a few of you sharing. Guests with cars were more than happy to give lifts to those who didn't, and as a group we visited the Alhambra which was a great day out - about 90 minutes away by car - book in advance and leave plenty of time to get there or you'll miss your timed entry slot - as we did (you can see the gardens, library, museum and fortress at any time, but the palace has to be booked). We have come home with many new friends and will certainly plan to come back in the future. Thank you to Catherine and Suzanne - you're both wonderful hosts!
