We only stayed two nights at Bambu after a business trip, however it felt like a week of pure relaxation. We loved the remoteness of the place, georgeous views, comfy room, superfriendly hosts, lovely other guests. We'll certainly be back for a real holiday.

We spent a week there following our wedding in May and I have to say that we had a fantastic time. We had both been reluctant to go to mainland Spain for various reasons, mainly pre-concieved ideas about the tourist industry. Bambu is not a five star hotel, but it is a clean and presentable little complex of apartments built...

Having been to Bambu and read the reviews we feel it is only fair to give a balanced perspective and prepare discerning travellers for the reality of the experience that is 'Bambu'. We wanted to support a lesbian-run business and enjoy unspoilt locations however we will not be booking again nor making recommendations since we felt that overall considering location,...

Well, what can we say in response? Trip Advisor readers will see the other reviews and appreciate that what appeals to many, clearly doesn’t appeal to everyone. We don’t claim Bambú to be anything other than in a rural location and a 20 minute walk to our nearest very authentic Andalucian village – we are not in the middle of...

Bambu Resort, A tiny Spanish paradise. For all of my travelling and shenanigans over the years I had never visited Spain . Mostly because the idea of miles of tourist laden beaches and high rise hotels had never appealed to my idea of a holiday. My preconceived impression of Spain was well and truly blown out of the water when...

I booked a holiday at Bambu as I was travelling alone and wanted to be somewhere that wasn't too far to travel to from the UK, and somewhere that I would feel safe and comfortable on my own as a single woman - this ticked both of those boxes. Booking was easy with regular email communication throughout the process, and...

We spent 4 days at Bambu as a part of a 10 day trip in Andalusia. Bambu was a wonderful, beautiful, and restful getaway, tucked away between avocado and mango groves. The proprietors run a clean, laid back resort that will allow you the freedom to fill your schedule with various actives in and around velez-malaga or just chill pool...
