We immediately fell in love with the views and were so excited about having all the amenities in a very spacious room. Full kitchen, great shower and air conditioning worked great too! Yendry is so helpful, showed us all around the property and where to Bar-B-Que downstairs by the pool if we wanted to. There is a full size outdoor... More

I keep coming back to Casa Bambora when I visit Tamarindo. The location and views are great. Joey, the owner is very hospitable and helpful. This place is clean and has all the comforts of home. Short walk to town and the beaches and quiet at night. I highly recommend it!

We were very fortunate to stay @ Casa Bambora during our trip to Tamarindo. The location of this property is amazing. It is located on a hilltop with amazing views of both the ocean and foothills behind Tamarindo. The rooftop 360 view balcony is the ultimate selling point of this place. Great sunset and breakfast views. The flora and fauna... More

The views from Casa Bambora are fantastic. The entire place is clean and very well kept, Joey the owner is meticulous when it comes to this. The amenities included are more than you need for the stay. Quiet, but easy enough walk into town by the trail or road. We absolutely loved our stay there and recommend to anyone. Joey... More

We stayed in the large Studio 2B for several nights. Really nice experience! The studio itself was spacious and great for relaxing, with lots of windows and deck space on 3 sides plus a great ocean view - kitchen with large fridge and gas stove was great for cooking in one night. A rooftop deck useable by everyone was unmatched... More

We stayed at Casa Bambora for a week on the 3rd floor. Room was clean, grounds were neatly kept, pool was refreshing and everything we needed was available. The rooftop affords some amazing views of Tamarindo and the beach and surrounding mountains--breathtaking. Joey was an exceptional host, giving great suggestions for restaurants, beaches, excursions and helped us reserve transportation to... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Bambora for 3 nights in March. Everything was great. The room was exceptionally clean and we enjoyed having the kitchen facilities both inside our room and the communal kitchen and bar-be-que by the pool. The pool was quiet and refreshing and great to come back to after time spent in town. The walk... More

Located at the top of the hill and away from the beach madness, this hideaway was a great escape. I believe there are 8 units - each unique, with a full kitchen and a private outdoor area. Ours, located on the first level, had a small gravel patio with a view of the ocean and hammock. There's a nice outdoor... More

As many other reviewers have stated, that it is a bit of a walk to town through a bush trail which you will need a flashlight for and some good footwear. Joey was great to book through and was very responsive to emails. As another review had stated, that the accommodation is reminiscent of "Frat House" is true, but it... More

Thank you for your review, just a couple things I would like to point out so people don't get the wrong idea about my place. OK first of all, Casa Bambora is located on a hill just above the treetops of downtown Tamarindo, the walk into town is about 5 minutes, the beach is 10 to 12 minutes and the... More

My wife and I stayed for almost 3 weeks at Casa Bombora and had a wonderful time. The property is very well maintained with a pool, waterfall and garden area just like the pictures. One the best features for me was the outdoor bar, BBQ , kitchen area. It was a great place to visit with the other guests and... More
