After a 14 hour flight and a short stay in San Jose, we stayed for 5 nights in El Bambu, which we reserved via internet. The reception welcomed us with tropical drinks. At special request of our boys (9 and 11) we could change our room for two days for a room at the nice swimmingpool (The other days these rooms were already reserved).
El Bambu is by design a perfect introduction to The rainforest.
We also liked the restaurant with friendly staff and fine card with very reasonable prices. Many local people also visited this place. We used al our breakfasts and diners there.
Rooms were of good quality, and El Bambu was for us a good startingpoint for trips as the skytrain and chocolate tour, nearby.
We enjoyed most the hospitality. Hotelmanager Ronald, a very friendly guy, spend quite some time helping us personally to plan a trip to Tortuguero. Via his contacts we could book a trip including canaltour and turtletour, for a good price. On our tour we saw massive boats with many people, but we had our private guides and boats of top quality!
We recommend El Bambu for a pleasant stay, in a friendly and inspiring rainforest environment with great service, good restaurant with very reasonable prices, and as convenient startingpoint for nice trips.
