“Gorgeoous Grounds, Beautiful Room, Great Service”
Reviewed December 29, 2007

Stopped at this hotel to get a room for the night after hiking all day on Quetzal Trail.

Got a room right away, and got a rate that was much cheaper than their advertised rate. Whoot!

Our room was super nice, with a large bed (which has been lacking at other hotels in this country, LOL). Really nice balcony that allowed us to look over the pond and the grounds. Loved that. Bathroom was very nice as well.

They had a pool and jacuzzi indoors that was nice. We used the jacuzzi that night and were the only people in there. Loved it.

Also, they had a building for massage by appt. We felt like getting one, and they called at 5 at night and had someone come to give us both massages. What service!! And great massage.

Breakfast was really good and included with our room.

Highly suggest this hotel.

nice place, many on-site facilities (see hotel info), that is good because there isn't much going on in the area. great trout baked a variety of ways in the restaurant. we were there off season so there weren't too many other people there and the off season rates are good. Rooms were ok, staff helpful and friendly.

We decided to stay in El Bambito for a couple of nights in July 2006. I traveled with 12 people which 7 were children ranging from 3 to 15 years old. They placed us in the lower level. At night there was a foul smell in the rooms, we could not figure out were it was coming from. The service in the Dining room was horrific some of the breakfast was included in the rate. My son wanted a banana i was charged close to $3.00, absolutely outrageous! They never got our order correct considering we were the only ones having breakfast and that we gave them the orders in spanish. Later we wanted to go horseback riding and there were no horses available. When i requested to speak to a manager there was not one in sight. This is supposed to be a 5 star hotel. It does not deserve even one! I would never stay there again!
